Cuban Art Renaissance: The embargo ends, and the Internet is calling
Cuba by albercriso
One of the rare places on the planet where art has not greatly benefited from the Internet, and the free expression its unfettered discussion encourages, has been Cuba.
The official U.S. economic embargo of Cuban goods has been in place since 1960, making the sale of art to wealthy American investors a hassle involving shipping through third
Tip of the Day: Experiencing a fallThe experience of falling down is as important as getting up in order to succeed.

CLOONAN podcastI did a very open (maybe too open on my end) podcast with Becky Cloonan over at Multiversity last week. We talk about the (so called) diminishing role of artists, the new fans you get as a writer, and our plans to write for other artists. We also talk about our "5 Year Plans" and how we each put more effort into our own stories that we do into other peoples (we think it's about 30%).CLOONAN podcast1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Six Word Story Contest - 7 3Mo.Subs to be won!A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.Six Word Story Contest - 7 3Mo.Subs to be won!4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
So getting to the point of this article, we are kickstarting this year with a six word story contest! We have some awesome prizes and hopefully enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! Please support the contest and the article so that more can join in on the fun!

NIGHT OF A HUNDRED TOONS Titmouse Screens Their 5 Second Films
At first, you see a busy thoroughfare. Cars whiz by and inclement weather prevails
A frail old woman, not even covered by a coat, considers crossing the street. The snow covers her glasses, blinding her. She wipes them off, only to find them covered again almost instantly. Just as she moves to step off the sidewalk, a handsome elderly gentleman approaches. He offers the woman his jacket, and prepares to guide her across the street. As he does so, the weather begins to clear and the traffic dissipates.

The 5 Things that Helped my Career the MostFive main points. If you can do all five of these, you're going to have a great career. Before you can strengthen your career with these concepts to follow, though, there’s something that you need first: talent. You don’t have to be born with talent, but you do have to work hard at developing it.The 5 Things that Helped my Career the Most2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
#1 - Have a Career Compass.
A lot of people when asked, will say that they have an idea of what their goal is. Maybe they want to work on a game or a movie, but they don’t have it narrowed down any further than that. Be very specific about your goals. What kind of movie do you want to work on? What kind of game? Get into the details. Once you have enough details, then you can use that goal as your ‘career compass’. Whatever moves you make, make sure that you think about your compass, and think if your next move is going to take you closer to your goal. My goal was to work on a Tim Burton movie so every job and painting I did was not based on how much it paid
Tip of the Day: Creative vs Competitive thinkersTip of the day: The creative thinker has more potential than competitive thinker.

Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art SchoolsAs much as I love my school, Academy of Art University, it's not necessary to attend a special art school in order to learn about art. Because of the internet, there are plenty of resources available for those who are self-motivated and eager to learn.Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art Schools2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll start with some of the cheapest resources, ending with more expensive ones:
1. Blogs, podcasts and livestreams. Most professional artists keep blogs, and these things are free treasure troves of information. The best blogs don't only show off art, they also give tips about the business of art and introduce you to new resources. Try starting with Muddy Colors, a super informative blog run by several professional painters and sculptors: http://muddycolors.blogspot.com/ For podcasts, check out Chris Oatley's artcast: http://chrisoatley.com/category/podcasts/ Also check out the Awesome Horse Studios livestream: http://www.awesomehorsestudios.com/

Top Ten Sci Fi Weapons On FilmLet the nerd debate RAGE!Top Ten Sci Fi Weapons On Film3 years ago in Personal More Like This
10: Phased plasma rifle (in a 40 watt range) - The Terminator
Thanks to some superb camera work, editing and sound effects, the weapons seen in The Terminator's future sequences packed a gut-wrenching punch that was light years away from the pew-pew lasers of yesteryear. As he demonstrated in Aliens, James Cameron had a particular way of giving his fanciful ordnance real substance and weight, and the future he depicts in 1984's The Terminator is genuinely the stuff of nightmares. If only McG had looked to these sequences for inspiration when making Terminator Salvation, maybe he could have recaptured some of the oppressive sense of foreboding and hopelessness that James Cameron brought to his classic original. Just look at the sequence where a Terminator blasts its way into a human compound near the end of the film. The intruder's every move has a menacing sense of purpose, while the destructive power of the Plasma Rifle it carries is perfectly depi

With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren’t sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how do you respond?
