Working hard (not) for the moneyA friend of mine just showed me a blog post from screenwriter and author of INVISIBLE INK, Brian McDonald. Read this! This is talking about writing screen plays but APPLIES to all of the arts and BREAKING INTO THAT DREAM JOB. I get emails all the time from artists that want "TIPS" about how to get better- THERE ARE NO TIPS! It is hard work and lots of it that makes you great.

Working Hard for the Money
My step father once told me, when I was a kid, that what made someone a professional rather than an amateur was that they were paid for what they did. He was wrong.
Many people use my step father's explanation for what makes a professional and I find that it leads to shoddy workmanship because it takes the focus off of getting good at what we do and shifts it to getting good enough to get paid. Or even worse just getting paid. The craft is often thrown out the window in favor of just doing whatever it takes t

The AvengersYou know that giddy, gleeful feeling that renders you incapable of doing little more than giggle like a lunatic?The Avengers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much had that from start to finish during the Avengers film (Which was released on Fair Blighty's shores as "Avengers Assemble" thanks to the past efforts of Steed and Peel).
There have only been a handful of movies that invoked that kind of response in me: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Abram's Star Trek, Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and the first Iron Man film are those which immediately spring to mind.
Indeed; Avengers is THE best Marvel movie since Iron Man. Ace cast, brilliant story, hysterical script, a scene that will stab anyone that's followed the films leading up to this point right through the heart and a fair few more surprises.
Chief among them being; how the hell did the Hulk become such a f**king awesome character after so many naff films?
I'm gonna go see this one again!

@YukoRabbitJapanese artist YukoRabbit's beautiful artwork is both passionate and incredibly detailed. With strong lines, forced perspective, and captivating characters, it's hard not to look twice at each of her digital paintings. She's able to draw you into the intricate lives of her attractive adolescent muses with her intriguing concepts. With a strong sense of movement, her work seems to dance around the page entangling both the viewer and the subject.@YukoRabbit2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

STORIES FOR HUMANS: REPRESENTATION IN COMICSStories for Humans: Representation in Comics, a discourse of race and gender inequality.STORIES FOR HUMANS: REPRESENTATION IN COMICS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Scott McCloud would say that comics are stories for humans. No matter how abstract the art, humans will see themselves in it. But, what about those of us who struggle to find ourselves portrayed in comics? Over the next few weeks I’d like to engage a very important, seldom discussed, topic: Representation.
Part I: The reason I make comics: Introductions are in order.
One of the most difficult topics I find to talk to white people, white men in particular, about is representation. Simply said, if you’re a white male representation in media is a no-issue. Seeing yourself constantly portrayed in the media has a desensitizing effect and at the same time it heightens your awareness to abnormalities. Think of it this way: A non-white character’

Well apparently Yoshi, Finn and Donald Duck seemed to have drifted across the internet--loved by some, while scarring others.
They're part of a new series I will be doing which will be based off pop-culture references and characters. My object? Make you forget what you thought you once knew about those loved characters.
But in the best way possible! Yes, they will be menacing, they will be violent, and some may even be just badass.
"Why", asked many tweens the past few days as as I submitted. "Why must you ruin my childhood and shit all over my loved ones?"
Well, because it's funny. And it's also quite refreshing to do.
Why do I use my powers to fuel your nightmares?
First of all, because I can and will, just as any of you can. I also like to think that I can grow and try new things and not draw the same shit over and over again, 24/7.
So for those who are here to enjoy and watch, by all means, thank you so much for your continued support and love. It re

(unnecessary warning for massive amounts of profanity ahead)
I'm by no means innocent of using profanity in everyday life Typically I use it for emphasis, humor, or else when I'm righteously pissed at something and no bland, common word will express my feelings well enough. Sometimes I'm quoting someone. Sometimes I just feel like shouting "shit" at someone
