Angel of the North
Newcastle upon Tyne has been voted the UK’s Best City by the Guardian and Observer newspapers. What makes this so remarkable is that Newcastle has found a way of transitioning from a gritty industrial manufacturing hub to a cultural mecca of the new computer tech-based economy able to support its working class population in comfort and good health.
The city was named after the castle built by William the Conqueror’s son, Robert Curthouse, over a thousand years ago. Newcastle’s location on the Tyne River between England and Scotland placed it in a perfect position to control the regional wool trade and later become

Respect Animals - FeatureThis is a Feature, that really means a lot to me. It is dedicated to all the animals that have toRespect Animals - Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
live in shelter, on the street or in abusive homes. All the photos in this Feature make me feel
sad. Animals do deserve a loving home. They give you so much and they do deserve the same
in return. Humans are animals too. If you treat them bad you will be punished, but hurting and
abandoning animals is okay?
And everybody please don't go to expensive breeders before you went to your local animal shelter.
There are so many lovely animals that are waiting for you. Is it really that important that a dog or a cat is purebred?
The character is what matters.
If I could see beyond the here and now
If you could hear me calling you somehow
If I could know that love is reaching out
To find you with me tonight
Then hope could make these promises come true
Beyond what I could say, what love can do
With every moment leading me to you tonight
I will stay forever here to wait for your love

How to avoid a creative block / find your styleI have been thinking about this a lot over the years. And have also been asked these questions quite often. Mostly by beginners and a pro here and thereHow to avoid a creative block / find your style4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's what i came up with
If you have a creative block - don't know what to make, have no ideas, are tempted to borrow somebody else's design or redo your own - try this:
- listen to your favorite song and recreate it. translate the sounds, the dynamic, distortions etc. into shapes, colors, textures. listen to the song 50 times if necessary. it can be done and you can do it!
- translate another piece of art into jewelry - go to a museum, browse through photos and paintings on dA, google couture dresses, whatever you like (just not jewelry). find one that you love and make your own smashing piece of jewelry!
- limit yourself with shape or color or materials:
a) pick a shape and make 3 completely different pieces of jewelry based on that shape. use whatever colors and materials you like
b) make 3 completely different pi
good comments vs... not so good commentsAs somebody who usually leaves comments when something is really intriuging me, I know I'm probably not somebody with a genius answer to "how to leave 10k totally creative comments". I might manage a tenth... maybe.good comments vs... not so good comments1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anyways. There are some things people with OCs might not want to hear and given the fact that I am not taken some kinds of comments kindly I bet these annoy the s*** out of other people as well.
Read the comment the artist left! I don't care if it's a one pager or simply one sentence. Read it. It's like seeing Star Wars without reading the crawl (that's the looonnng text in the beginning introducing the story... and yes, the "Star Wars crawl" actually is so famous it got it's own name).
Some people explain what they did and why and normally the information is useful. Don't be a lazy bum and ignore these.
Seriously, if the person posted something that's in the fanart category and you know the series and love it, you can easily check if the art suits the chara

Knowledge is Out There, Grasp It!EDIT 2/13/14:Knowledge is Out There, Grasp It!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Due to a few concerns that I'm overgeneralizing through my use of the word ignorant, I wanted to amend some things:
1. This journal was not written out of a pretentious attitude, in fact it's quite the opposite. I feel the need to share knowledge, and I do whenever I can. I could never be upset with those who truly do not know where to start when it comes to enriching their minds.
2. This journal is not about lording knowledge above those who do not yet possess it.
3. This journal is not about bashing someone for the barriers that can impede or prevent their desire or ability to absorb new information.
4. I do not encourage people to "just Google it," that is why resources are listed at the bottom.
5. If you would like to contribute a resource, please link it in your comments.
I’ve been hearing the phrase “I don’t know what ____ is” a lot as of late and it’s been a little irksome, and here’s why: we are currently living in

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.

“Some use Ink, I confide in Silver”
— Lauren E. Simonutti
Quote by Lauren E. Simonutti
“ The misfirings of my beloved/despised mind that conspire to convince me to destroy all have rendered me housebound and led to a solitary life. A creature of past, proof, memory and imaginary friends, I am aware enough to know the things I see and hear are not real, but that does not mean I do not still see and hear them.”

Happy New YearLet's all start the year off with some stuff I wish I had growing up:Happy New Year2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I read an article last night on people who are mentally strong and the DO NOTS of being that person.
I took those notes, and listed them, including how I learned to overcome these obstacles. It's a long read, sorry, but I figured this year it's time to open up and share that knowledge that I was once taught by someone I consider my mentor, business partner and bestfriend, Stephan.
1. Don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself - I used to feel this way as a kid. I was a child of divorce, and used it as a crutch when I was younger. I hate a (mentally) abusive step-mom who would constantly take me down. I began to feel that maybe it was true, and I wasn't going to be the person I wanted to be.
You can't think that way. No one likes or enjoys a Debbie Downer. Someone who is constantly on the negative or pining for sympathy. I began to overcome these complications with art or writing. Using tha
