The Intrepid Quest of Kevin Eastman,
Defender of the Comics Realm
It’s a shame that most comics enthusiasts prowling the San Diego Convention Center during Comic-Con 2011 mostly or even only know Kevin Eastman as the co-creator (with Peter Laird) of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, not that being one of the authors of one of the most celebrated comics phenomena of all times would not be laurel enough for any creative artist to retire well-rested upon.
While the fan-beloved TMNT juggernaut still rampages along unabated, there’s quite a bit more to Kevin’s biography that deviants should be aware of – especially when wondering how much difference one lone artist’s efforts can make in building a better arts environment for all who would follow in his path.
Kevin was one of the band of independent comic book artists and writers who in 1988 authored the Crea

Cinderella A Dream is a Wish
Cinderella and her glass slipper have become a modern day institution since Disney’s classic film debuted 65 years ago.
The tale we’ve come to know today originated in Europe, but its roots can be traced as far back as Ancient Egypt where we find the original “Cinderella,” a Greek slave girl named Rhodopis who goes on to marry the king of Egypt. The Cindere

Recommendationi feel i must...i just must, put forth a recommendation on behalf of good sir Patrick Rothfuss.Recommendation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
in my hands, i hold book two of a glorious one thousand page epic from this glorious man, a book named: "the wise man`s fear"
a work of splendor, from our fellow writer, who without a doubt outschools us several times over.
one thousand pages of pure talent, skill, and unlimited imagination, im at page 33 of book two of the "kingkiller Chronicle" and im already having a blast, very much in comparisson with book one "name of the wind" i dont think i will be putting it down anytime soon.
do yourself a favor..or lets call it a life investment, purchase these books
Edit: at page 35 now, this book gets better by the page...nay! by the word! damn... the human tounge is to primitive to explain how pleased i am with Master Rothfuss`s style in writing!

im busy like heck packing away the stuff in my apartment and such, but i feel i owe it to you all to keep you posted when i have longer periods of inactivity.
first i want to thank those who came with words of comfort after my failure at my exams, failing that almost literally broke me, i never fail, not saying that to boast, but i just havent failed any tests or exams yet.
granted i didnt always have the best of grades, but in the least i didnt fail, and considering all the time i invested and crap i had to deal with, failing this one was a rather devastating blow, but im done crying.
im entering the army, and my access to time and internet is yet unknown, but i hope il get a chance to write something new to share with all of you wonderfull people.
honestly, i have had long, descriptive comments of kindness, and short

1assignment,1exam complete! only 5 more to go!OMG! I could NOT believe the day I had today!1assignment,1exam complete! only 5 more to go!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My exam was today and I got up early to get there an hour early just in case something happens.
I normally do not complain about public transport but today was just ridiculous!
It's 15 minute walk to my bus stop and I had to walk in the rain today, well at least I had a jacket. So it wasn't so bad.
I caught my bus (yes, the correct bus - I double checked) and I was on my merry way. Until midway through the trip, my bus driver had made a wrong turn.
No biggy, I only lost 5 minutes and still had an hour to go until my exam so it was ok.
As I was getting to my stop, I pressed the bell for the next stop to my college only to watch in horror as the bus driver drove right past it! :iconcrycryplz:
I couldn't believe it, as well as 5 other people who attended my college too. We told the bus driver and you know what he said??
"oops"..... and he kept driving.:iconinsultedplz:
Man I was so pissed!! :iconguaahplz:

in one of my art classes my teacher was sick so we had a substitute which just happened to be my principal. we were so noisy and we didn't pay attention to him. it got to the point where we were throwing paint and he got hit.
suddenly, he stood up and just burst out in rage," YOU ARE ALL FREAKING GRADE 12, WHY DON'T YOU BEHAVE?! STAND UP IF U ARE FREAKING STUPID!"
nobody stood up and there was a long long silence for a very long time.
however, one of my friends stood up. everyone stared and wondered,'why is he standing up? is he suicidal?'
my eyes widen and i was thinking loudly in my head "ARE YOU FREAKING STUPID?! SITDOWN!!!"
i was hoping he could get my message telepathically but i don't think he did...
the teacher stared at him and asked "do you think that this is some kind of joke? do you really think that you are stupid?!"
my friend replied, "No."

Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)Our view at deviantART regarding SOPA is that it's probably a bad idea. There should be better ways to deal with mass infringement on the Internet than this. This bill in our view can be seen as a threat to the open Internet itself and this is very hard to digest or support.Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)4 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
I personally have found information at the EFF and at Public Knowledge to be very helpful in understanding what is at stake.

Thank you very much for the responses
Do you think when someone has a 'fursona' that it automatically makes them a Furry by default?
You don't have to read this part if you don't want to XD Just putting this out there as my own personal opinion and stuff.

i got some feedback regarding my grammar, which is always welcomed beacuse i know i make a bunch of mistakes regarding that.
but very few seemed to understand that the rushed and "Lack-of-details" Beginning was intentional, and not a Writers slip-up.
People did just generally seem to dislike it somewhat.
I really enjoyed writing those parts, and was kinda "in the zone" and was looking forward to writing more.
but if the particular style i chose dosnt make sense to anyone, theres not much of a point.
Il give it some thought...

One house caught fire, and due to the strong winds it blew the flames and sparks around rather randomly.

1. What inspires you to do art?
I could really ramble on this one but I will try to keep it short. The reason I write, draw and create is so I can show people what I see and feel every day. I have really active imagination and I know I'm not normal, but when I create my art here I end up meeting people with the same exact clutter in their head. Looking for a way to clean out their minds to make room for the million new ideas' to come. We all pour our heart and soul into our art; we put it on display for all to see. This is why I believe artists are one of the bravest people and
