The New Street Photographer's ManifestoFebruary 7, 2013/by techgnoticThe New Street Photographer's Manifesto3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson called it the “decisive moment”— the captured instant when all the photograph’s elements come together to tell a story in a way a text narrative of thousands of words could never begin to. It is what hooks people, both practitioners and advocate-devotees, on the art form. It is uniquely completely immersive in life— step out into the streets— in which the moment of artistic epiphany can never be guessed at until it suddenly happens. When it is properly mastered, it is as pure as the dawn of each new day, as true as the living organism of a teeming street scene catching a breath as one.
It's no easy task to pull a book together for publication and "The New Street Pho

We want to especially thank an elite core of Odyssey II writers:
Those deviants truly embodying the spirit of the project by continuing to create and submit next chapters – no matter the story’s refusal to go along with their proposed direction. The zeitgeist is a powerful force, but the artist must know when to sail against the been-there-done-that. And our writers, artists and poets have been doing that week after week. So many artists and writers continue to send in wonderful material week after week.
We have decided to extend the writing deadline for the last chapter to December 31 and we're

OBJECTIVE: SELL THIS DAMN BOOK, DANNY.
At first, Gabriel was nothing more than a character named ONE. He had no backstory, no face, nothing. I just wanted to create a character that was a badass, yet with a sense of humor.
I was inspired by such characters as Boba Fett, Wolverine, Deadpool and Clint Eastwood from The Man With No Name trilogy. I needed to create something that fit that build, however, I'll admit, it wasn't intended at first.
I uploaded him on December 8th, 2008, (which, you can find here: http://danluvisiart.deviantart.com/art/GABRIEL-107612010?q=gallery%3Adanluvisiart%2F7848546&qo=50) and he became one of the most popular characters of the series, if not, the most. Soon I started finding him on forums, websites, fashion blogs (what?), and more.
But what hit me so hard was that the majority of the comments rela

I loved it.
The FiM team is amazing, and I am consistently impressed with the work they do on each episode.
I marvel at the believability they breathe into the world and the characters. From the writing to the music to the animation. Each component is seriously and thoughtfully composed... The emotions of the characters feel genuine, and because the characters take themselves seriously, the viewers connect with them.
Cartoons/animations/comics have immense power... and it makes me so happy to see a cartoon that finally takes that power seriously. Most people dismiss the idea of cartoons being serious, and that is a tragic mistake... Cartoons are symbolic in their expression, and the more "simple" they are, the more symbolic they may become. My Little Pony is the perfect example of this. The designs are simple, but the symbolism is rich with meaning and substance (because the creators care). This is why it is a good show.
Children deserve to be taken serious

A lot of people have emailed me, noted me, or left comments about how I originally came up with Last Man Standing, my graphic novel. If you are unfamiliar with it, or a new watcher, it is a book that I have spent the past two-to-three years bringing to life. You can visit the official site at: LMS-KILLBOOK OF A BOUNTY HUNTER
Let's start with YEAR ONE.
I was working on a pipe-dream/nightmare project with my producing partner, Stephan, of Section 9 (our company), in 2008 when LMS first came to my head. I was under a situation where I had to produce artwork for, which was to be, a job for Micro

I Believe in Santa ClausI was in second grade when my friend first dropped the Santa bomb on me. Later that night, I talked to my mom about it and she told me everything. When she finally sent me back to bed, I turned around and asked one more burning question, "So who eats all of the cookies?" to which my mother simply replied "Yum." My parents asked me to keep the secret from my sister, which I diligently did because even as a youngster, I knew that when she found out, there would no longer be presents from Santa.I Believe in Santa Claus4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The past few Christmases have been relatively uneventful. I do the same traditions that I did when I was young, but the cheer is gone. No matter how much I try, I cannot get myself to the same level of excitement that I did when I was a child. It wasn't until this year that I realized that in the past few years, I have been looking inward and asking myself why Christmas wasn't the same, when all the while, I should have been looking

Oui, je sais... mais si j'ai baptisé le groupe comme cela, c'est pour une raison - hormis la chanson éponyme de cet obscur groupe américain que j'adore http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1aJPEFtoNg

Dramatiques, ironiques, philosophiques, parodiques. Peut-être est-ce nous-même qui y mettons le feu, afin de pouvoir avancer... Peut-être est-ce notre passé que nous brûlons... Peut-être est-ce une conséquence de nos guerres... Peut-être parce que, tout simplement, elle était moche ou démodée.

Sylveon. They look cute and adorable on the outside, but on the inside, who knows what they’re planning…plotting…wondering.
It all started two weeks after Pokémon X and Y were released, I had just got home from school and I decided to play some Pokémon Rumble Blast on my 3DS since I had no homework. I had not gotten Pokémon X or Y yet, but I was expecting to get it sometime soon. To my surprise my mom walked into my room and showed me the brand new and still unwrapped Pokémon Y game. I was jumping for joy when she handed me the game and I immediately started playing it.
Once the main title screen appeared, I went through usual Pokémon intros of the games. Professor Sycamore had asked for my gender, name, and hair color, which was female, Taryn, and black hair, since they didn't have dark brown as an option.
After meeting my rivals and picking my starter, Fennekin, I continued to play through the game. I had alwa

Spontaneously, I feel like writing. So here's a story.
In 2011, I was on the right track. On the way to being more centered--I was feeling good and I was accomplishing a lot (mentally and artistically). But then towards the end of the year, things got shitty... I put myself in a bad situation (the kind I didn't know exactly how to respond to)... and as a result things spiraled out of control.
In a nutshell: I lost my sense of self.
January 2012? All the mental [and spiritual] progress I had made up until that point seemingly vanished. I felt like I didn't know myself anymore--I felt as though I had betrayed my self-confidence. Depression inevitably drowned me. My health suffered. I went from 120lb to 109lbs--which made everything worse. Ill body, ill mind...
I disconnected from everything.

OBJECTIVE: CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND STORY BUILDING
I began working pretty heavily on LMS during the first quarter of 2009. I had now a handful of characters, a rough idea of the story, and a general scope of what I wanted the book to be. To get started, I felt every book should have a theme. Movies do, right?
Spider-Man: Great powers, great responsibility.
Batman: Be more than just a man, a symbol, and be remembered a legend.
Star Wars: The myth of a heroes destiny, and the truth that allows him to be set free.
