i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.

The Hunger Games: Cato chapter 1The streets of my cold home are quiet when I wake. As I lie in bed for a moment, I briefly wonder what we will learn in training today. Then, I remember: today is the reaping.The Hunger Games: Cato chapter 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
I jump out of my warm bed too quickly, resulting in a shiver down my spine as my bare feet come in contact with the cold-as-ice floor. I rush over quickly and slide on my shoes, cursing under my breath. But nothing can keep me down too long, because this year is MY year. The trainer assigns the volunteers each year, and after the training exams, I was selected.
As I'm getting dressed, my sister Leona suddenly and unexpectedly barges through my bedroom door. After I've finished yelling and her cowering, I ask, "What did you want, anyway?"
"I- I'm sorry, Cato, Mother told me to remind you to meet that girl in the square today before the reaping," Leona answers.
Ah, yes. Clove. Leona's reminder is helpful, but I'm not about to apologize.

I open my eyes in the morning, stretching my arms out and starting when I brush against something warm. I look and see Clove lying there asleep, and for a moment I'm in a full heart attack mode. Then I remember. I smile and try to get up without waking her up, but it doesn't' work.
"Cato?" Clove yawns.
"Good morning," I answer her.
"Huh," she says, sounding surprised.
"What?" I ask.
"I wasn't expecting you to still be here," she says, sitting up.
I laugh. "What? Don't you have any faith in me? Don't you remember what I told you last night?"
She just nods. Then there's a pounding on the door and for the second time already I feel like I experience a heart attack.
"Clove! Wake up! Time to face the day! Hurry and come down to breakfast, your stylist is waiting for you!" An annoying capitol accent calls from outside. Then the person walks away.
"Was that the escort?" I ask.
"I think so," Clove answers. "By the way, where has she be

The Training Center is amazing. The quality and variety of weapons over takes me. The trainer's talking, talking, and I wish she would stop so I can get started. She finally tells us to go at it. I walk over immediately to the swords. So many blades, so many sizes, so little time
I pick up the biggest thing I can find and walk to a sword duel area. Thankfully, someone challenging comes up, the boy tribute from District 4. He has black hair and brown eyes, and he's carrying a decent blade. After holding the blade in front of my face and giving a slight nod, I assume my stance and begin to circle him.
"Hello, mate," He says, attempting to swing at me from the right. I block it and throw him back.
"How's it going?" I reply, going for an upper handed attack which he cleverly throws off.
"Fairly well. And you?" He answers, jumping to the side as I take another swing.

SUPER IMPORTANT PERCY JACKSON NEWS!!!HOLY MOTHER OF GODS UNCLE RICK ANNOUNCED THAT HE IS WRITING A NEW PERCY JACKSON SERIES!!!! OMG I THINK I JUST DIED :iconicantplz:SUPER IMPORTANT PERCY JACKSON NEWS!!!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
An excerpt: And I will announce this here for the first time, right now I'm working on a new book of the Greek myths, told from Percy Jackson's point of view. My hope is to offer the original stories, but told in a modern perspective that appeals to our kids today. I decided to set aside the earlier anthologies, as much as I love them – Hamilton, D'Aulaires, Evslin, Greene – because the writing is a little dated. Instead, I've leapfrogged straight back to the primary sources. I'm using Ovid, Hesiod, Homer and many others, and trying to cast the entire scope of Greek mythology afresh. John Rocco, who does my covers, is illustrating, and we're hoping to create something that's going to be useful in your libraries and classrooms.
Anyway, one of my goals is

PPOV - Percy's point of view
The pure white snow glittered in the sunlight. The delicate flakes fell lightly from the sky, since Chiron had allowed them to. In the outside world there was a minor blizzard, and I knew Demeter was in a bad mood. I sighed and rubbed my gloved hands together to keep warm, fascinating at the mini cloud of warm air that formed when I blew out a small puff of air. Most daily camp activities and lessons had been canceled, since almost everyone had left camp for the winter holidays.
She looked so pretty, just standing there with her blond princess hair tumbling down her back, a sparkle in her stormy grey eyes as she watched snowflakes melt when they touched her gloves. I resisted the urge to go up to her and say, "Hey Annabeth," but instead slowly snuck up on her, thankful to the snow for muffling my footsteps.
I watched, transfixed,

He's not satisfied. He had to go make Percy and Annabeth romantically tumble down to Tartarus, leaving the girls sobbing out of the sheer sweetness of Percy but also the horror of TARTARUS. And the guys were cheering, saying, "YES! More fighting in Tartarus!" But I don't even know how Rick is gonna be able to make all of them survive...if he does. I need someone to converse with!!

I grumble and reach out towards my phone once more, turning on the XFM Breakfast show with Danny Wallace. They're talking about dreams. I then decide that I really need to get up, and so I do... After another 15 minutes since I realize; I'm not working today.
Eventually, I'm up and I carry my computer into the living room and turn on the DVD. I didn't finish the Lost episode yesterday so I might as well look at it now before I start thinking to much about my situation. Dad says I think to much.

Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on HalloweenArt By :iconraggedy-annedroid:Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on Halloween2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it is Halloween. I am a cosplayer. Here it is, the greatest of all dress up holidays! And I am always disappointed. Here are the top 5 reasons it sucks to be a cosplayer at Halloween.
1) Friends (including friends of friends) come out of nowhere to ask for costumes. They just ask for a little help. On their giant full body armor masterpiece. The week before Halloween. Because you know, you make costumes and it's easy for you. And the price? Well, it's "for a friend" price. Which is always "free" or "I'll pay you $20 never" which boils down to "get you a shot of Jack sometime." Sadface.
2) Costumes in my closet everywhere, but none for Halloween. Yes, I have over 60 costumes. No, none of them will ever be recognized at a Halloween party. One year I dressed as Pris from Blade Runner out on the town, which I thought would b

Rick lifted his from his desk."Annabeth," he yelled, an idea forming in his head.

Annabeth grumbled a little. I could hear her say some thing about,"seaweed brain can`t say his lines because he`s just a little child on the inside." Percy must`ve heard it too,because he looked sadly at his girlfriend.

So, yes, it's true. As announced today in Publisher's Weekly Children's Bookshelf, I have written a crossover story featuring Carter Kane and Percy Jackson. The story is called "The Son of Sobek."
This is something fans have been asking me to do for years, but why this story and why now? My publisher Disney-Hyperion was looking for something fun to add to the paperback version of The Serpent's Shadow, which comes out May 7 -- something to encourage folks who haven't yet tried the Kane Chronicles to pick up the series. I decided what the heck. Let's throw Carter and Percy together in a Greek-Egyptian dilemma and see what happens. The result was SO much fun to write.
If you buy the paperback version of Serpent's Shadow on May 7, "The Son of Sobek" will be at the end of the book, no extra charge.
"But what if I've already b
