Not to mention I wanted to get that negative journal off my profile page.
How is everyone? 8D I'm doing alright. Work is work. Dollwise, I've been getting ready for ManikaManila Tiangge, my local doll community's annual BJD bazaar. There's much to be done so I hope it all goes smoothly!
Anyway, I know I promised a Dollism report. I don't think I've ever done one here. It's usually on my LJ and Facebook accounts.
So here I go!
We lived along Tung Choi street in the heart of Mong Kok. My friends and I usually go for an apartment rather than a hotel, to cut costs and to experience life as a local.
Not to mention it is tons of fun living with your friends for almost a week! We arrived on Thursday, July 11th. We mostly roamed around Mong Kok that day.
Tung Choi is right beside Sai Yeung Choi St. which is home to several doll

It's not just the artwork that tells you something about it's creator - on the internet, the way you present it is at least equally as important. Your painting can be a masterpiece, hanged in a local gallery, but as long as you post a blurry, badly cropped picture named "1564873" along with "..." in an artist's description, nobody will ever bother visiting your gallery. Creating a nice, representative profile page and setting a certain visual quality standard takes extra time and effort, but if you really care for your work (even if it's just a hobby), you should treat it with some respect.
I've already written a related article called The power of context that tried to explain how to place your work in a context in order to better connect with your audience, this one is focused

It's possible to de-convert religious peopleA few years ago a random person messaged me on a social network. She was visiting Vancouver and had wanted someone to show her around. I decided to invite her for a hike to Garibaldi Lake.It's possible to de-convert religious people3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Spending almost a whole day with a new person from another part of the world, there are many interesting things to discuss. We talked about this and that, and eventually got to religion. She was raised a Catholic, myself - an atheist.
I made the standard argument and she brought forward the standard counter-arguments. However, she was willing to grant me certain things and she was willing to think about it. After she left we still continued to exchange messages and ideas over the Internet. She would asks me a certain question, and I would send a link to reading material, such as on cognitive biases. We became friends. Around a year and a half later she said that even though she wanted to believe in god, she no longer could due to the weight of the evidence and all the information that she had c

Your friend in Art,
Artistic insecurityIt's funny how people seem to think that I'm all that great, just because I make the art I do, and I voice my opinion here in an occasional journal-article. Like any other artist out here, I have my own doubts about my art, and I have a hard time facing them every now and then. I'm not perfect. I'm far from where I want to be. And lately I'm quite uncertain of where I want to go with my art. It's something that is bothering me quite a bit, and blocked my creativity.Artistic insecurity2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I started doing art again, somewhere at the start of 2010, I used to very very insecure about my art. I never joined contests because I'm terribly afraid of failing. Honestly, I would feel bad about myself for weeks if I didn't at least end up in the honorable mentions. I never made tutorials because I was afraid one of DA's members would come up and say to me: "Why are you teaching this shit? You don't know anything about art!". And although I never liked to do fanart, I wouldn't probably have dared to do it either. A
What's That There Toyetica about?A lot of ppl have asked exactly what my new comic series Toyetica is about, so here's a quick summary!What's That There Toyetica about?5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here's the lowdown: in this world, humans and a tiny race of people 8 inches tall called Toys co-exist. The Toy people used to be captured and abused by humans, kept as pets and playthings for their children. Now, in the modern world, the Toys have a kickass union and an agreement with human toy companies that any doll made for human children MUST be based verbatim on a real Toy person, to ensure employment for them. So Toy people go to school to become more "toyetic," aka more marketable to toy companies. They try to get the best accessories, develop a gimmick, find their demographic niche and compete for a coveted spot on every toy store's shelf.
Trixie Tangle is one such Toy, and has a hard time living up to her sister Traci's success in the 80's as the ultra-hot "Traci Fitness Star" doll. Together with her other less-than-marketable friends at Dollington Academy, she strives to fi
The Bizenghast Adventure Game!So I was talking with Clint Krause, the fellow who produced the original Bizenghast Adventure Game, which was a role-playing manual set in the Bizenghast universe, published in 2008 by TOKYOPOP.The Bizenghast Adventure Game!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It had a very limited run and is damn-near impossible to find nowadays (the only copy I've ever personally seen is the one I own!), so I asked Clint if he could hunt around for the original digital print copy of the book, so we could make it available for free download online to fans! Hopefully he'll be able to locate it, and much BZG-themed roleplaying will be available for your tabletop gaming pleasure very soon!

The last few weeks have been a bit stressful for me. And it was not doing my health any good. I've been through the trouble of losing my job. And having to find a new one in the current state of economic crisis... which isn't so much fun ~__~
The last few weeks have been filled with making a resume and going to job interviews. Lot's of them. Which I absolutely hate, since I'm absolutely not the type that likes to go to people and shamelessly promote myself. It's quite the opposite, actually. I'm damn shy in real life T__T
Anyhow. Things somehow turned out just fine. I got a new job, starting in september. And I'm soon having a few well deserved days off at my current job.
So I will get back at DA soon. Check if I can work myself through the huge stash of replies that piled up during the last few weeks. Post some more art. Work on the switch around meme. Finish some of the digital works that I'm still working on. And work a b

Other cool thing: At KATSUCON 2016 (this February) we'll be doing a big big BIG Toyetica cosplay group, and taking photos of cosplayers to use as alternate covers for the Toyetica comics! So if you come dressed as a Toyetica character, you may just end up on the cover of the comic!
Don't worry, the comics will actually be out by then, so you'll be able to read them and decide who you like best XD
That's all for now...and that's a lot of good news! YAY!

Go register to vote, it literally take like TWO MINUTES: https://gottaregister.com/. Don't be lazy, JUST DO IT, before the 30-day cut-off! Then get your ass out on election day and do your civic duty!
All eligible voters who do not vote will be banned from entering the boundaries of Snakistan and will be stricken from the invite list of our inaugural cupcake fest and ballpit party. I'm volunteering with my local Obama support campaigners to do everything I can to register voters, even if they're not going to vote for my candidate. If I can be in pain every day of my life and still volunteer, YOU can take two minutes to register and then remember to show up at the polls. if you don't have a ride, contact your parties' local support group via the official candidate's website. they have buses and drivers volunteering to take people to the polls.

The Other SideSo what the one other thing I do beside work?The Other Side4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Man I've been a dance gamer for over 10 years now. I try to play for style more than anything. I like finding songs that are hard enough to keep you moving, but easy enough that you can still look cool doing it.
This is the one other thing I do besides work work work. Really it's the only exercise I get maybe once a week. But lately with changes in my diet I've been able to get in really good shape. I happened to be there one night and a passerby decided to start recording. This was linked to me by my buddy Archie.
Funny tidbit, before I was ever known for making movies. I was "famous" in my hometown for dancing at arcades. My friends would even joke about the group of kids who liked to watch me back then as "monty's fanclub."

Add your birth-date and birth-month and count down that number from the beginning of the section. If that number is too big for the number of animals listed, go back to the beginning once you reach the end. If you get an aquatic animal and you aren't a purpleblood, go to the next animal.
