It's October and the sacred 31 days of Halloween are upon us-time to get your gore on! The chill is in the air, the leaves are on the ground, and Halloween candy has been out since Labor Day. So while you’re waiting in the Starbucks line for an overpriced double pumpkin spice whatever, pass the time with this year’s scary movies reviews!

HOW TO GET PUBLISHEDThis is an old piece I wrote and posted a while ago, but just recently people have been asking what my experiences were with regard to publishing and getting published - so here it is again, with a few new notes added about dA and Madefire!HOW TO GET PUBLISHED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a very honest view based on 27 years experience as a writer, artist and publisher. The point here is to try to HELP you go into the business enlightened and with open-eyes, knowing what to expect. IT IS NOT INTENDED TO PUT YOU OFF! However, you should know that getting into comics is NOT easy - as too many people frequently imagine - and neither is it a glamorous 'rock-star' existence. It is hard work, as are all trades, and it should be treated as such. I see too many people despondent and badly hurt by their experience, and this can be avoided if you know what you are getting into right from the outset.
Getting into comics is something a lot of people want to know how to do, but there's a lot of questions you w

Grimoires and the Unholy Invitationals of the Damned
Halloween entertainment… or invitation to evil?
Grimoire 2 by AndrewDobell
We all know from the movies that a vampire can’t cross over the threshold into one’s home without being invited. And yet simply knowing that Dracula can be held at bay so easily makes issuing that invitation all the more irresistible. Could such things as supernatural beings actually be real? And could there be ways for we mere mortals to have the power to evoke them into existence or dismiss them as we might pleas

“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”
— Ray Bradbury

As an artist our aim is to create.
Our goal is to envision and then usually visually invent things from our own mind's eye and as such we often overlook the fact that not every mind thinks the same as our own.
Everyone has their own unique imagination with is fabricated and cultivated by our own live's unique experiences, events, and past. Now, while those things may be similar in nature at their core, no one event is the same for every person.
As such we have to realize that despite how much we want to, we cannot ever please everyone's tastes with our work.
It's not because there's persnickety people or that another artist is better than we are at our chosen
Why we fall. - Edited with full postWhy we fall. - Edited with full post2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Art by Allison Smith.
"Why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up."
One of my favorite lines from Batman Begins. However, there are moments where it's rather difficult to get back up, and sometimes we require that one special kick in the ass.
From each tumble, we learn a valuable lesson. A year or so ago, I had hit a personal wall that was proving too difficult to force through. Art, which is usually front and center, took a back sea--and while we've all had art blocks--that wasn't the only issue.
It began with my roommate of two years, whom had decided it was time to move else where. With such a sudden interruption, I had to find a new home and in less than 30 days.
Having also been through a bleak breakup months prior, and finding myself with no pending freelance work and

I get many questions from people who want to use my photos somehow – I state they need my permission, but I am too busy to answer their notes and comments at the same time. Very stupid situation that is in fact a trap for all those who are polite and really ask for permission
That’s why I decided to create some general rules.
And to make it user friendly, I chose the form of questions and answers.
I hope they fit any situation you might think about, but if you get any idea, please, do not hesitate to comment!
Those rules will be also on the main page of my account and I will link to them through every of my new deviations
RULES FOR USING MY WORK

Even if I do not like what people did with my work, I will always treat them nicely when they at least tried to somehow credit me. On the contrary, I will always hunt down pe

Hello!Back from the dead.Hello!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've kinda disappeared for a bit, and wanted to write a little journal why I've left Facebook, Twitter and kind of my online persona. If you care to read, down below you will find my reasons. I hope you're well, and will try to post more art soon. Feel free to discuss below your opinions on the matter, and I'll try to reply. My answer goes far beyond "I've just been busy!" and maybe you too will connect with how I've felt:
The other day I received an email from a fellow follower of my work, asking the question of why I left Facebook. Not that everyone should know my daily activities, but if you haven't noticed, a couple of months ago I had deleted my FB in order to focus on my property LMS, as it's shaping up for film, and the next book in the series, LMS: Welcome to America
Now before I continue, this is strictly my opinion. I know people like to get angry online, so if you disagree with it, you have every right to

New series = new art = tears.Hey new watchers and followers!New series = new art = tears.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well apparently Yoshi, Finn and Donald Duck seemed to have drifted across the internet--loved by some, while scarring others.
They're part of a new series I will be doing which will be based off pop-culture references and characters. My object? Make you forget what you thought you once knew about those loved characters.
But in the best way possible! Yes, they will be menacing, they will be violent, and some may even be just badass.
"Why", asked many tweens the past few days as as I submitted. "Why must you ruin my childhood and shit all over my loved ones?"
Well, because it's funny. And it's also quite refreshing to do.
Why do I use my powers to fuel your nightmares?
First of all, because I can and will, just as any of you can. I also like to think that I can grow and try new things and not draw the same shit over and over again, 24/7.
So for those who are here to enjoy and watch, by all means, thank you so much for your continued support and love. It re
IF YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED BY PIXLETT READ BELOW[EDIT: 8-14-14] Forgive me guys as I'm getting swamped with comments about this situation. Since the original posting, we have learned that:IF YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED BY PIXLETT READ BELOW9 months ago in Personal More Like This
1) Pixlett/Toxic is a minor.
2) That if prosecuted, the parents will be held accountable, not the child.
3) At most, if convicted, she faces being marked as 'delinquent', and subsequently placed on probation unless she is tried as an adult, in which case, she would then be charged with theft/fraud, and face 3 years or more years in prison.
4) We have found who we believe to be identified as the suspect theif. From here, we should be able to file something [not sure what yet] against her/them in court.
:iconwitchpaws: and I are doing our best to dig up what we can about legal proceedings to have her delt with. Having her under 18 makes this extremely difficult to deal with legally, and also, each state has their own laws so I have to look at laws much different than my own. (which again, makes this hard)
I will update when we figure things out furt

In Bangkok, Thailand, students are being arrested for raising their hands in the air to flash Katniss’ three–finger “freedom” salute.
That’s right, the Katniss who’s the fictional heroine of the popular dystopian sci–fi “Hunger Games” movie series. The world has changed over the last few decades in a very big way, but some are apparently unaware of it or undisturbed by the stunning ramifications.
