Years later, Jim found me...I corresponded with Jim Henson when I was eleven. I know, it sounds unreal. But thanks to Karen Falk, archivist for the Jim Henson Company, I have the proof, a letter that's been lost to me for more than twenty years. I seriously encourage you to read my blog post about it, to see the letter I wrote Jim, the response he sent me, and to truly see how and why Jim Henson continues to inspire me and influence my work.Years later, Jim found me...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Tip of the Day: Thoughts of dreams and problemsTip of the day: What do you fill your mind with? Dreams or problems? Time to focus on our dreams!

Tip of the Day: Playing the Game of LifeI used to spend all my free time on games. Arcade games, card games, home entertainment systems... etc. Until I found the best game of all - LIFE. Not the board game but the real thing.Tip of the Day: Playing the Game of Life3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You only get one life and there are many levels that you can pass. Try to think of life as a game. Always trying to get to that "next level." Identify what you could achieve to get to the "next level" in your life and put your energy into it!

Don't Go to Art School (Response)https://medium.com/i-m-h-o/138c5efd45e9 <--- Read this, dudesDon't Go to Art School (Response)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I agree with this post but I've never told anyone to not to go to art school or university.
People ask me all the time what school do I go to (ALL THE TIME). I always respond "just a cheap state university", but it kinda of bugs when people want me to be specific when it really doesn't matter.
I don't like the bureaucratic system in my university. I think taking GE classes are a waste of time and should only count as electives. I hate how the university uses the horrible methods to teach us art since it never works. I hate how the Art Department does not offer a lot of classes compared to other departments.
I took over five Animation classes and none of them helped me. What helped me was studying from the "Preston Blair Animation book". I studied it on my own time when I was doing an internship in Florida (nothing to do with my career but it was fun).
I've seen students struggle because they were not taught properly how t

Tip of the Day: Believing is not DoingTip of the Day: A lot of times people might ask for advice and when they are told the answer, their reaction is "Oh I know that already." Believing in something isn't the same as acting upon what you believe in.

My deviantART StoryGather round, good people, for this is my deviantART story.My deviantART Story4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This story is not for the weak of heart or mind or stomach. It is not for women who are pregnant or who might become pregnant. It is not for small, impressionable children who might read my words and interpret them as a call to violence or inaction. It is not for those prone to the dry heaves, or the wet heaves, or the slightly damp heaves. It is not for those who believe in magic, or in the healing power of rainbows. It is not for people with crab claws for hands or whose heads are the nesting ground for small flightless birds.
No, good people. This is a story for people who can appreciate terms like "assassilicious" and "tactical bunning." It's for those who could identify the head of Rhogor Johnson if they found it on the side of the road. It's for the Bennonites and the Winslowvians and the Kurtesans.

Commission Time!I'm gonna open up my commission slots. At the moment I have 4 slots open. Below are the details on how I handle things.Commission Time!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to hire me for a commission. I do not accept notes or DA comments. Please also be detailed in exactly what you want up front. Do not send me an e-mail asking if I'm taking commissions or if I will do something without explaining what it is you want. I can't approve or make decisions based on incomplete information.
Also, If there's a specific character please provide reference, or at least links to references, so that I don't have to hunt the internet for them. Basically, the more detailed and specific you can make your submission the better it will turn out.
Just be aware also that my e-mail tends to get flooded as it is, so don't be worried if I haven't responded to submissions. I do my best to try and respond to everyone to make sure they know when I have or haven't accepting a commission, but o

Japan and ArtSo I just got back from two weeks in japan with one of my best friends. She's been there for almost four years teaching english. She speaks fluent japanese, so she was my translator and train figure-er-outer. XDJapan and Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The whole time I kept thinking about something a very popular concept artist on DA said and how much it made me mad at the time and how much angrier it made me while i was spending time in Japan. I'm paraphrasing here, but he basically said that Anime was the downfall of young western artists and that there weren't any good anime anyway except one or two- but he admitted that he didn't really watch anime at all and hadn't seen much... all based on the fact that he couldn't find good art that inspired him, a professional artist with amazing talent, on a site that is mostly filled with amateur and young artists from around the world.
Even without the anime influence, I think DA would be filled with the same level of art it is now. the close ups of v

Comments and Commenting We all know that getting the exposure you want for your work is a tough endeavour here on dA. Despite the wonders of the site, the simple fact of the matter is that comments are hard to come by these days.Comments and Commenting1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
There may be many reasons for this - lack of time on the part of many browsers, lack of interest, or simply: not knowing what to say. We've all been there at one point (some of us more than others), and it presented the question - "what is it that writers want out of a comment?"
The only way to find the answer to this question was to set up a poll - which received an amazing response from the lit community, and with your help, this editorial will highlight some points that will aid in leaving some insightful and appreciated comments.
First and foremost - Read.
