Pope Benedict is resigning at the end of February due to "advanced age" and deteriorating health. A pope esigning is not completely unheard of, however he'll be the first pope to do so in nearly 600 years. Hooray?

10 tips for visual artistsI was thinking to myself tonight, "what have I learned so far?" Whenever I start to get down in the dumps about my work/career my husband always says "what would you say to your students if they said the same thing to you?" So in today's post, I try to address a few core things I've learned so far at this point in my career. I'm writing this for my readers, but also for myself as reminders of what's really important as an artist so I myself can stay focused. It's by no means a comprehensive list, I'm sure that I could write a novel about this, but it's what I'm thinking about tonight.10 tips for visual artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This

1) Don't burn any bridges.
The person who stood next to you in line at the cafeteria the other day could be in a position to positively impact your career some day, and vice versa. (when I say "cafeteria", this refers to art school/college) It sounds ludicrous, but in my experience it could not be more true.

Put it in you google.com search:

Click the word "Images" in the left of the google page. It will show images instead of pages.
Voila. You'll see all images under CC in DA.

While at work last night, one of my co-workers was on her phone scrolling through her facebook feed when she found a video.
Youtube it, you'll find it.
The video was a young girl named Amanda Todd telling a her story - about being mercilessly bullied. I don't know her personally, I've never met her. But, I, like many people, can relate to her. Amanda was like most young girls, I think. We all seek the approval of people and sometimes we do things that we later regret. I know I have done many things like that. Amanda was pressured into flashing some people online, and for years after they used nude images of her to force her from school to school, continually and consistently dragging her name and self esteem through the mud.
As any person would, it only made her crave acceptance more, and she later got involved with another student who used her. Later, that student and his g

First of all, I wanted to remember you that I selected the winning works for the representation of a CONTRAST between a character and his environment, not for your skills to draw or photomanipulate. So, please, don't feel offended if your beautiful work hadn't be choosen . I tried to select the more creative works in my mind.
I would also tell you that I'm really happy with all these beautiful creations you did ! Many thanks for your participations, I hope you'll try to participate to the next contest .

Lex Luthor: A manipulative mastermind. A hugely successful industrialist. A brilliant businessman apparently born to be both the brains and figurehead of a multinational mega corporation. A man whose actions got him all the way to the White House. A man who is as charming and commanding as he is evil and power-hungry.
A man being played by Jesse Eisenberg, the weedy guy that played Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network……and whose voice sounds like a duck being raped by a chipmunk.
