User Friendly Journal Skin Coding
I've been making journal skins on DeviantART since 2010, I'd dabbled in CSS before, but never for other people. I know what my codes are and how to use them to their full potential and often, just code on the fly when I want something to do something. But making free and commission skins here showed me that I needed to make them as easy to use as they are pretty. And really, who wants to type in a lot of extra HTML when they go to write a journal? It is easy enough to access the artist's comments.
But even then, copy & paste, memorize that.... It can be a lot to deal with if you do not know CSS and HTML. Which is the reason most people get someone else's skin design in the firs

updates on new strips and print publishingso, time for some updates.updates on new strips and print publishing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
next week i will be posting the next strip and possibly another one. , by this i mean the next official chapter continuation. before that there is an alan ministrip i'm working on that is just.. ..well.. something nice, ull see not trolling this time XD
now , on publishing.
so far i have gotten a bunch of offers by publishers so that is not twhat is delaying it. personally i have my own preferance so i will probably take that road.
why it is still not out?
simple. going from the webcomic to standard comic format required a lot of work in creative cropping and reformatting.
this brought with itself a problem with making the writing fit.
this was an impossible task which required me to rewrite the whole damn thing.
flow has been significantly improved. small errors in continuity fixed,(like ally telling lisa that the bathroom is third door on the left when it is actually the second door... SHADDAP THAT'S IMPORTANT!)

Hello there, girls and boys and Goblins and RBCs and assorted Dear Readers.
I'm really very sorry GND updates have slowed to a trickle, nay, a Chinese water-drip trick, just as we hit what is pretty much the epic-est storyline I have up my sleeve for the moment. There are some incompressible times issues in coordinating with my various wonderfully skilled but also busy and much imposed-upon colour sorceresses, and these are pages that can't quite be dashed off quickly, what with the Costume Porn and getting certain Significant Looks just right... Besides that personally, I have had little time to spare on them (or certain long-ago planned commissions, *cough*) this semester. I've been working on volume 2 of ''Alyssa'' for the French BD market, and am kinda nose-to-the-grindstone, blinkered by the deadline on that. Not that it's not pret

There was so much interest that I plan on holding more baking contests in the future as I know some of you currently have other engagements and could not enter this time round.
Onto the winners!

This was a beautiful entry on all levels, presentation, photography and creativity. It really did tick all the boxes which I never expected, especially from someone whose gallery is filled with polymer clay food rather than the real thing!
The presentation of the cheesecake was amazing! I love the added Oreo design on the inside the glass made out of chocolate. Also the different flavoured Oreo's and moun

Moving swiftly on, I regret to inform you that THIS IS THE END...of the huge backlog of messages, comments, journals, etc that has bunged up my inbox here and in email accounts abroad. With the New Year fast approaching, and with me attempting to fortify my priorities, it is time for a summary conflagration of messaging, the better to move forward and ahead. I've gotten really terrible at responding to things in a timely manner, and a good electrical burn to clear the slate is just what the doctor ordered.
What does this mean for you, gentle reader? Well...nothing, really. It's my hope that this makes things a bit easier in the future regarding contacting me, and if I already have outstanding obligations or projects with you, this doesn't affect them or amount to me ducking out. In fact, this is all a dramatic way of saying "I'M CLEARING MY INBOX AND I'M GLAD, GLAD, DO YOU HEAR ME?! GLAA

the world is my home!I'm at a bit of a crossroads.the world is my home!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Let me give a little bit of explanation here.
I've done a fair amount of professional comic work. It's almost entirely by accident, which I realize is kind of a blessed situation, but happily, the one constant in my life as a "professional" has been a weird character I happened upon many moons ago: Gogo.
Which is awesome. I cannot lie. Gogo and the whole "Bomango" canon (such as it is) has been my sushi perfection (see: Jiro) for many these past years. I don't want to change the world; I just want to make a delicious dish. Some might see this as an obsession, some might see it as a sickness, even, others might not even care (why are you reading this, then? The world is on FIRE! Put your passions to that!) But for my part, I have come to terms with the idea that I'm a cook whose entree has attracted a few aesthetic stomachs. There are more and better artists out there with haute cuisine, but this sushi needs development.
Here is my life: I work 40-60
