Keep Calm and Carry OnTony DiTerlizzi once told me that to become successful you just need to keep working. Even if it seems like nothing is coming from your hard work, you just need to keep doing it anyway. If you're persistent and keep at it long enough, eventually people will notice you and you will get somewhere. It's advice that resonated with me quite powerfully, and since college I've always taken the attitude of just doing what I love, with the faith that it will eventually pay off. I've had my ups and downs over the years, but in many respects his advice has been true. The following are examples of things I am grateful for, that would never have happened had I ever given up. This is not a complete list, or in any specific order. It's just a few highlights of special things that have happened to me that I will always remember fondly.Keep Calm and Carry On2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Take a look through their gallery, and you will find photography, photography, and more photography [with the exception of some photo-realistic paintings]. But unlike other Deviants, he does not simply submit every photo he takes. Only his best ones make it to deviantART. He puts effort into his photography, and it shows in every one of his submissions. With less than one comment [or favourite] a day, and an average of 4.5 page views daily after five years, this Deviant deserves much more attention than they currently have.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneySaw The Hobbit last night. It was very good... if a bit long. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for seeing all the little details interconnecting The Hobbit to Lord of the Rings and all that, but for the average watcher... eh... it kinda dragged. I overheard several people saying they fell asleep during the film, and I noticed more than once a number of people fidgeting and looking at their watches. Still, it's a damn fine movie and It's a shame we have to wait so long for the next two films.The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Having The Hobbit being written during the beginning of Lord of the Rings is pretty smart. You could effectively watch the 3 Hobbit movies and then immediately move right into the 3 Lord of the Rings movies. Kudos to Jackson for that, it'll be great to marathon run the two trilogies back to back.
This movie was, like the book, much lighter and funnier than The Lord of the Rings and I was surprised at how much from the books they actually kept. They
PRIEST LIGHTNIN!Brentalfloss contacted me early this week wanting to collaborate on a video about the new Pope. Our goal was to finish most of the art by the end of the week and just add in the Pope's face later when we finally found out who he was so that we could time the video with his election. As anyone who's probably seen CGP Grey's video about "how to elect a pope" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kF8I_r9XT7A , knows that it can sometimes take a very long time. So I was planning to work on this project rather leisurely in-between other projects like brentalfloss the comic.PRIEST LIGHTNIN!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then I woke up Wednesday afternoon to a txt from brent indicating that they had just elected Pope Francis.
We both immediately leapt into action. Brent worked on finishing the song and starting to edit the video, while I worked on churning out the artwork as fast as humanly possible. I literally worked for 30 hours straight without sleep trying to get the various illustrations finished in time. Every time I finished a dr

This is another long one, and I apologize but I need to speak my mind. This journal is in response to the "righteously indignant" users making a fuss about me "selling" fanart of copyrighted characters in my recent Adventure Time post. To the person who signed up today just to write a nasty comment on my new Society6 page. To the person who flagged my recent Adventure Time illustration on DA and then proceeded to send me an e-mail about doing it (probably the same person). To the people creating multiple accounts to try and dissuade users from spending their money how they see fit. And to a long list of people who follow everything I do post just to make sure that their negative voice and attitude are the first voices anyone ever sees on all of my work.

Russian politics: the art of flimsy excuses.On the whole, believe there’s a difference between the people that run a country and the rest of the people who live within its borders. Politicians, regardless of where in the world they hail from, are generally bullies. You have to be a special kind of egomanic, self-serving prick to claw your way into a position where you have the power to put other people in harm’s way to benefit your own agenda. The only difference geography seems to bring is a level of subtlety. British politicians are slimy and insidious, American politicians rely on drama and theatre, and as we’ve seen over the last couple of days: Russian politicians are obsessed with proving they carry the biggest stick, at the expense of everything else.Russian politics: the art of flimsy excuses.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Of course, in order to prove you have a big stick, you have to actually use it. That’s quite difficult in this day and age. A couple of hundred years ago, a master of a people could just point to a spot on the map, say “Want!” and his army
Why You're Wrong about a Female 12th DoctorREAD THE ARTICLE HERE: http://doctorwhotv.co.uk/why-youre-wrong-about-a-female-12th-doctor-50442.htmWhy You're Wrong about a Female 12th Doctor2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Writer for brentalfloss comics Dan Roth wrote a very interesting article about why having a female Doctor wouldn't be the end of the world and might actually help give new life to the Doctor Who franchise. Discouragingly, the vast majority of Doctor Who fans out there are dead-set against it.
According to an official poll http://doctorwhotv.co.uk/matt-smiths-departure-your-reaction-50404.htm 87% of fans would prefer a male Doctor over a female one, and comments made by fans on the polls and in Dan's article are rather disappointing.
I'm not here to try and debate it, because I frankly don't care what they do. My Doctor will always be David Tennant. But just because I like him doesn't mean I want to impose my likes on anyone else, and it certainly shouldn't stop the creators from taking a risk that might shake things up and get more fans.
Obviously they won't have a female Doctor
Disney closes LucasArtsF**k you, Disney. F**k you.Disney closes LucasArts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are not angered by this news, you're obviously a very young gamer and probably (rightly) see LucasArts as nothing more than a mediocre-Star-Wars-title-discharging-sewer-pipe.
Disney bought LucasFilm because of the Star Wars cash-cow, but the number of classic IPs produced by LucasArts throughout the 90s makes the descision to close it rather than attempt to return to the studio to its glory days pretty staggering.
I actually see way more potential in LucasArts IPs than Star Wars.....but then, so would anyone with even the most stunted of creative minds.
Disney obviously still own all the properties, but the LucasArts brand is gone, and it's the end of an era, even if they start picking at the corpse for ideas to ruin.

If you haven't heard by now a bridge in Washington collapsed. No one was hurt, thankfully. As someone who remembers the tragedy of the Minnesota I-35 collapse, it makes me very happy that no one died. Glad everyone is safe and here's hoping maybe we'll start looking into how bad our bridges actually are and... I dunno... fixing them?
Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One to boos and hisses. I can't say I blame them. Every piece of information about the console makes me cringe in the worse possible ways. The sad thing is, despite how epically awful it is... it's still going to sell phenomenally because it's got Halo and Microsoft's deep pockets to back it up.

Strange and exotic foods.The USA is the loudest nation on Earth. Its culture is presented to the rest of the planet in all forms of media, and has been for the decades that I've been parked in front of the TV.

For those that take my jibes, barbs and sarcasm too seriously: I have no problem with that kind of cultural permeation. Far from it. I find it rather fascinating.
It has however led to a few "WTF?" moments. Questions as to what those crazy Yanks are talking about, as there is nothing comparable elsewhere. They're never in regards to anything major. Just little cultural quirks that have never escaped beyond the borders and, as such, are seen by outsiders as a total f**king mystery.
Things like "S'mores".
"S'more" is a word I've heard and read since the 80s.
"Let's make S'mores"

So as you all know I've been sick with the flu, today was the first day after almost a week I ran through all my messages and went through all the art from all my wonderful friends and DA being the great site that it is, let me look into all of them beautiful art made by them.
But to them all and to leave a comment now that is a different story, not only the click and drag isn't working at all, so I need to each one individually to it's proper folder, more then half my comments weren't accepted because it keeps flagging them as spam....Seriously? Spam? So I can't comment a big amount of art from my friends? Since when that happens? Second time this happens to me, so I just and clean because it's impossible for me to go through 1k or more of deviations and I'm not even looking at groups anymore, with great shame I must say.
So DA made my job a lot harder after a week away from being sick, thank you so much......
