Wow.Hundreds of people have gathered in Glasgow's town square today to celebrate the death of Margaret Thatcher. (http://local.stv.tv/glasgow/220638-council-says-stay-away-from-george-square-party-for-thatcher)Wow.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Stay classy, Glasgow.
For those of you who don't know who Thatcher was, here's a bit from Wikipedia:
Margaret Thatcher was a British Conservative Party politician who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990. She was the longest-serving British Prime Minister of the 20th century, and is the only woman to have held the post. Her political philosophy and economic policies emphasised deregulation (particularly of the financial sector), flexible labour markets, the privatisation of state-owned companies, and reducing the power and influence of trade unions.
Basically poor people hated her.
Collection: Laundry DayCollection: Laundry Day9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
From the clothesline strung across the backyard, to the college dorm laundry rooms, to the inner city all-night Laundromats, we all have our memories that begin with helping Mom with Laundry Day, that task that soon became ours alone upon taking flight from the family nest. Laundry day can evoke warm memories of family unity, or cold memories of aching separation and loneliness, the softness of a stack of fresh towels or the hardness of city sidewalks, depending on the time in you life you are remembering. Here is a collection of deviations evoking the full range of Laundry Day duality.
About Cywren's story...So I understand that A LOT of you want me to take the perspective of Cywren and do her story parallel to A Fallout Tale. However those are some HUGE shoes to fill, and seeing how Poet was a companion instead of the main character in A Skyrim Tale, I just filled in those missing gaps in her story. So basically what I'm trying to say is that it's Jordan's tale, and he's telling Cywren's story this time around. I guess I just don't feel like I have the... right to tell it I guess? XD I dunno, maybe I feel like I'll just mess it up, or I'll start it and not continue it because I would have to cover EVERY. SINGLE. EPISODE. XD And I was bad enough with the release of Poe's Journals as it was. Maybe I could do a side character in AFT if you guys REALLY wanted me to write something, but we'll have to see as the story goes on. But for now I'll leave Cywren's tale to Vent I hope you guys are okay with this.About Cywren's story...1 year ago in Personal More Like This

2015: The Year AheadWow, hard to believe it's 2015 already (yeah, I know it has been for nearly a month, but I had to get affairs in order)! 2014 was quite a year, wasn't it? As far as deviantart went, I began with hardly a follower or view and turned myself around into a cartography fiend with 123 watchers and 32k views under my belt. Not so bad for the year!2015: The Year Ahead9 months ago in Personal More Like This
But, in many ways, 2014 was just a test year. It was a year for trying new concepts, new ideas, and new styles, to hem myself in to what kind of artist and writer I wanted to be. Some projects were failures, and others were massive successes.
Overall, however, I want 2015 to be the year that I really get in sync with my art and writing, and the year I make something of myself. And, so far, it's looking like that'll be possible. In addition to getting some work with commissions that I'll finish sometime soon, I've also got a whole lot of exciting projects lined up throughout the year!
The big, main project as far as mapmaking goes is going to be the
No More Requests Please!I'm very flattered that people consider me competent enough to bring their ideas to life, but even after completing over one hundred scenarios, I still have a backlog containing over a hundred more. I want to use what free time I have to power through this enormous list. There are many other talented people out there, but first and foremost I encourage you to bring your own scenarios to life. What I'm doing isn't black magic, nor am I some modern day Michelangelo. I am just some guy on the Internet. And while I do use Photoshop, everything I do can be done on Microsoft Paint. I encourage everyone who has an idea and wants to see it realized to take a crack and making it themselves. My first tries at making maps were atrocious, and I only got better through practice.

Friends and MLPnever really said it but MLP turned me into another personFriends and MLP2 years ago in Personal More Like This
once i had two fantastic friends
today both dont like me really anymore
i made mistakes in the past wich they wont forgive me even tho i appologized many times
anyway my well lets say new best friend said two things
"if you love something you set it free"
"only the strongest can forgive"
i learned that lesson today
and i can forgive them
but my advice
if a friend comes to you and is sad or needs help
and you get dragged into big trouble only to help him
dont aviod him
answer his call and jump into the deepest dirt only to help your friend
even tho that means that it causes more problems
that what makes a good friend he helps you in many situations
i did it too and i lost friends for helping other friends
i made desicions i regret but i helped them
and i even tho i did bad things

Famously said by many, “Ninety percent of success is showing up.” How true it is about a soul killing combination: looking at what our own first efforts in any endeavor, particularly art, result in, and then looking at the works of far more experienced artists. Giving up always seems the logical, if panicked,
