I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost... I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn't my fault.
It still takes me a long time to get out.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in. It's a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault. I get out immediately.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.
I walk down another street.

Exploring Art 30: Theft and value of an artistHey guys. I've written about copyright law in the past, but there are some things I just.. never thought to mention. However now that Sarah and I are working together, we're dealing with several types of art theft at once. Everything from the recast dolls situation (where someone buys your doll, makes casts of it, then sells it to the public. Yes this is illegal, more on that later), to someone submitting my art to a game company as their own for a job. In many cases we are dealing with ignorance, so I thought I would clarify a few things.Exploring Art 30: Theft and value of an artist2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is going to take a while.
The Recast Situation
There is a new trend in the ball jointed doll industry, where people are taking dolls and sending them to 'professional recasters'. These people then make a mold of someone's doll, and recast it. They then proceed to sell the doll to their customers. The artist receives no compensation for this, nor is allowed to even have a say in anything from the quality of the resin, to the

i saw frozen and hobbit this week (spoilers)so here are my superspoilery opinions of these movies ---i saw frozen and hobbit this week (spoilers)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
just opinions, there is no more validity to them than to anyone elses
so, let's start with frozen....
i made a huge mistake before frozen...huuugeeee mistake.
i listened to that let it go song....
now, what follows is an example how one small thing can snowball into a huge friggin thing... see what i did there ? snowball?
so i listened to that song.. and ..um.. it sounded glorious... but it also sounded like an anthem to coming out of the closet.... i mean, i deal with subtext a lot. and even i have seen people see more in my own writing than i intended. rarely but it happened. so subtext is hardly a new thing ...
we are talking about a song that says
don't let them know don't let them see , be the good girl you always have to be
conceal don't feel don't let them know... well now they know...
and this is just some of it... there is this vibe of a sexual liberation in the s
Recast Information (Friendly)Hey all the people!Recast Information (Friendly)2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Ok – enough of friendly greetings – let’s get into this! *cracks knuckles*
This entry is going to be dedicated to FRIENDLY Recast BJD Information – The goal is to provide non-bias information for the purpose to educate and create recast awareness NOT to create hostility. Spreading knowledge is better than spreading hate – and this topic has far too much hate already.
That said – I’m human and once I get typing I know I can seem rude so please know; if you’re rubbed the wrong way or feel like I’m trying to target you that is not the case – and send me a note so I can try to re-word this to make it as basic as possible!
OKAY let’s begin.
First of all, what is a recast BJD?
Well – ResinMuse couldn’t have said it better

Welcome to Week 38# of Flabnbone's Features.
Earlier last week I was taken aback with amazing news!! I got accepted into Masters of Speech Pathology for 2015. I was totally shocked as offers were meant to come out in Dec-Jan (getting the offer 3 months early was a total relief).
I am so excited about this. Although at the back of my head, I still want to be a Clinical Neuropsychologist, I guess that can be saved for later (after all, there is a lot of overlap between the work of neuropsychologists and speech pathologists ^^)
Exploring Art 33: If it was so illegal...Hey guys. Still on the copyright kick! Today I would like to talk to you about a phrase that has come up recently.Exploring Art 33: If it was so illegal...2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
"If it was so illegal, you would think the artist would have put their foot down long ago"
"If it was so illegal, why aren't the police knocking on my door?"
"If it was so illegal...."
That's a phrase that legitimately makes me sad. The reason why is because it shows that our society doesn't quite understand the way the legal system works. That's frightening, because it means that these people are not going to be able to protect THEMSELVES if something happens, because they don't know their own rights, or what should and shouldn't happen in the legal system.
So, as it's come up in regards to artist's rights and copyright law, I would like to discuss a few things.
The first is 'if it's so illegal, why don't the police stop me"? Well first off, this is not a crime that requires police intervention. There is a limited policeforce out there and they are hone
Exploring Art 20: The Value of You.Hey guys. So in this exploring art series I've talked about how to price your artwork, and how to value your artwork. But did you know that YOU are an intrinsic part of your art's value? Everything you are, everything you do, and everything you have experienced in your life is key to the art that you make. You need to recognize that and take care of it! You are important, even if it doesn't feel like it.Exploring Art 20: The Value of You.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
One of the things I noticed about artists is that we all, for the most part, seem to suffer from a deplorable lack of self esteem and self confidence and sometimes even depression. I've watched some of the most incredible painters of our time go into fits of doubt and rage, and destroy paintings they were working on because they simply weren't 'good enough'. I've watched budding artists go into a soul crushing spiral of doubt, to the point that they stopped drawing, gave up because they simply couldn't match the glory of their vision with the skill in their hands. And let's not f
