Thomas and John Knoll: the brothers behind the magic
Back in 1987, Thomas Knoll was working on his Ph.D. thesis as part of his studies on image processing at the University of Michigan. He had bought a new Apple Mac Plus to help with the thesis, but was frustrated by the fact the computer wouldn't display greyscale images on the monochrome monitor. This issue wouldn't stop him and so he decided to write his own code in order to be able to see the images in his new computer.
His brother John was coincidentally working for ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) on image processing at the time and discovered Thomas' code during a holiday visit. Clearly impressed by his brother's achievements, both began collaborating on a bigger applic

Facebook Art Theft AppThere's a facebook app which essentially takes comics from around the web and puts them all together in one place. However, it bypasses links to the original source material and even worse it encourages users to donate to the creator of the app.Facebook Art Theft App3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Essentially this guy is making money off us web comic creator's hard earned work that we normally give away for free.
Links for the people who want to stay more informed: http://team4d.deviantart.com/journal/A-NEW-KIND-OF-ART-THEFT-WEB-ARTISTS-BEWARE-278974603 http://www.korybing.com/post/15704334457/choochoobear-thunt-of-the-webcomic-goblins
I've reblogged this on tumblr and made a post about it on facebook. Please try to spread the word about this if you can.
EDIT: The app's name is not Something Positive. That's actually one of the comics the app is stealing from. Apparently the app changes it's name depending on the comic it's ripping off. There are about 161 web artists (not all necessarily comic related) who's work are being misused.

Anybody see the latest My Little Pony episode? Holy hell... they actually had "derpy hooves" in the episode and Rainbowdash herself SAYS her name is "Derpy." Even if you don't like MLP:FiM, the fact that the creators of the series went so far as to take a fan created character (fan created in the sense that fans named a unintended background character mistake), use her fan given name (which happened to be meme-tastic) and not only acknowledge it but to actually PUT it into an episode like that... wow. I have a feeling this is kinda the next step of fanbase and media building. And it's awesome! So yeah... "Derpy Hooves" is 100% legit now.

WINNERS: Well, thanks to random.org we have our two raffle winners: #5 RL-182 and #4 SunMoonDragoness. YAY typos fixed because stash writer is working again!
UPDATE: LAST CHANCE TO ENTER! I'll be doing the drawing sometime tonight.
I want to thank everyone for helping me reach my 1,000 watcher milestone! When I first joined 9 years ago, I thought 100 watchers was a lot...figured I'd maybe reach like 500.
As I watched the count creep up slowly, 1,000 just seemed so impossibly far away. But then one day I noticed it was 950...just 50 away! With such an awesome milestone approaching, I figured it would be a great opportunity to offer some free art to my watchers!
So without further ado, here are the rules for the free art raffle:
1. You must be a watcher of mine, I'm rewarding the watchers after all! (Don't worry, all of my watchers are eligible to win, regardless of if they watched me before or after this jour
Advertising Revenue EthicsAs it seems to be the prerequisite of being an artist I don't make much money off the actual artwork itself. Instead I make most of my money off advertising revenue. The more people who view my pages, the more money I make.Advertising Revenue Ethics3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was thinking of trying a new link system for SYAC. Basically when you click on the "read the next comic now" link, you would be taken to a short 5 second advertisement before moving on to the actual comic. If you have an adblocker, you probably wouldn't even notice anything.
My question is... do you think this is a good idea? Many artists on YouTube get paid for adverts playing before their videos, and many filmmakers (like the AVGN) have advertisements play before their own content on their own websites. Why shouldn't this same sort of system work for other artists? Would you be willing to sit through a 5 second advertisement before being able to view the new comics? Is this a bad idea? Will it piss off more users even if it makes me a few extra bucks here and th

The Derpy Issue Part 4 (final)Alright, so now we get to the crux of the matter. Hasbro has finally made a statement:The Derpy Issue Part 4 (final)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"The 'My Little Pony Friendship is Magic' series has always been about acceptance and inclusion, and the series strives to convey that through the playful antics of a diverse cast of characters. Some viewers felt that aspects of the episode 'The Last Roundup' did not stay true to the core message of friendship which is the heart and soul of the series. Hasbro Studios decided to make slight audio alterations to this single episode."
NOW would be the appropriate time to start getting all freaked out over this issue. Personally, I am not going to worry too much. I am disheartened that they've chosen to respond this way, but I am not surprised. Hasbro is a corporation, they have to think of their image. "Derpy" is a debatable term that can either mean "goofy and silly" or "insulting towards disabled people" and frankly I agree that this is not an appropriate word to be used for a kids TV show
Salary Calculator, and the worth of artGuys!! I have just come upon an extremely useful tool for those who are trying to figure out how much to sell their work by, either for commission or when selling finished work.Salary Calculator, and the worth of art4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I must first say that this is just one way to go about pricing your work, but I hope that may be helpful to someone!
An online art marketing and job seeking site called The Creative Group offers a salary calculator which allows you to specify the type of work you do and a zipcode. Upon putting in this information, it will give you a range and an average yearly salary for that category of professional work in that particular area. You can then compare it against nearby cities/towns and against the national average, and just go hog wild seeing how much most other artists get for their work. Keep in mind this is all in US dollars, so conversion to other forms of currency will have to be done should you not be in the US.
The calculator can be found here: http://www.roberthalf.com/creativegroup/s
