Fishbones Novel DownloadA while back, I removed the ability to download the Fishbones novel because it was being spread around on certain websites without credit/permission. Since then, I have occasionally e-mailed the file to those who asked nicely, but on the whole it has been unavailable. I continue to receive emails asking for the file, but have been so overwhelmed that I've been unable to respond to them.Fishbones Novel Download3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But, I know some of you have a genuine interest in the book, especially after having read the comic. I've decided to offer the book up for download once again under these conditions.
- You can name your price. This means you can pay whatever you see fit, as low as one cent. If you would like to support me or are feeling generous, any amount would be greatly appreciated.

Study ThoughtsWhen studying the scriptures, I was told do what the FBI does. They train their agents to be able to recognize counterfeit money on sight. They do not train by looking and fake bills and comparing to real bills. They train by studying the real bills so hard that they know them inside-out intimately That way a fake is instantly recognizable. That's how it is with the Bible. Mine that book like a gold mine for every speck of treasure in it and it will make every fake thing look so cheap and a total loss compared to it. 1st John chapter 4 also talks about how to test the spirits. It's been 11 years for me and I am still encountering new dimensions in the Bible through my walk (especially in my current difficulties).Study Thoughts1 month ago in Personal More Like This
It's also like eating, the things we take in with our senses is another form of eating. The Bible is spiritual bread and milk that we feel our souls on, it even gives life to our mortal bodies.

i'm thinking about that artbook i mentioned a few journal entries back. i have some ideas of how i want to handle the content, which includes a few exclusive pieces, tutorials/walkthroughs and probably a dvd showing my painting process. i want to make it happen! but one thing i've decided is to look for a publisher in the U.S. it would be great since that would make the book altogether more affordable for many of you - it's so expensive to ship from europe! so i wanted to ask if any of you guys could suggest any american publishers or knew any companies that make interesting artbooks that aren't too expensive/gigantic? any tips would be great. thank youuuuuu for reading!
Common Misconceptions: Copyrights and YouHi peeps! In this “Common Misconceptions” blog we’ll be tackling more copyright issues as they pertain to us artists!

I have to register for a copyright to own the rights to my work
In the simplest terms, if you made it (and it’s 100% original work) you own the rights to the work.

Financial Resources Available to ArtistsFrom time to time around dA you may see your fellow deviants faced with unplanned or unforeseen financial crises write journals asking for donations. One of the great things about dA is that the majority of the collective community here is comprised of like-minded individuals and we are all greatly aware of the financial burdens that we as creatives may face from time to time.Financial Resources Available to Artists10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
When the need is urgent or if your profession is being threatened because of a catastrophe, you may need more funding than what can be raised through dA. In such a circumstance, it would be in your best interest to seek out emergency funding through a grant. Please note that some of these grants cannot be funded to hobbyists, students, or self taught artists.
