New Sta.sh Submit Interface (Beta Testers Only)
Sta.sh, deviantART's upload and publishing platform, has a redesigned submission process! This new version, which is only available to Beta Testers, includes a simplified and tidier interface that makes it easier to understand and use.

An awesome concept and interesting look into artists and their environment. Was a little self conscience at first having so many pictures taken of me and my home/workspace but it didn't take me long to get comfortable as the shoot was pretty laid back. The tough part was actually doing the writing!
I hope you dig it! It was super rad!

Ready to make your Art into a business?A fellow Artist who has a stable day job wanted to make his craft into a business so I wrote him the below reply. I just thought its useful, even to me, to realistically see if a niche art can be made into a business. With rising salary, materials and business costs, if you don't have a fan base or getting the habit of shipping over 300 products on your own at least maybe you are not there yet. There are much you have to do with your art including overworking long hours to see a quality product gets made and delivered to your customers. Also having a good sales attitude and understanding that it is a business and your soul is fueling it.Ready to make your Art into a business? in Personal More Like This
As an aspiring Artist who wants to make his art sustain a life and family - I know what you are going thru and its tougher when you are doing this by yourself and no one to invest in you. My suggestion is this.
BEFORE you quit your job:
If you think you have something of value, design product lines with multiple variations that you think you can sell m
Tricksters in Modern LiteratureArticle Series: Tricksters in Literature, Part 5 of 5Tricksters in Modern Literature in Literature Features More Like This
For the final installment in the Trickster article series, we’ll be discussing tricksters in modern literature and the ways, if any, in which these modern-day tricksters are similar to those in mythology and folklore, folktales and fables, and fairytales and fantasy.
The artwork in this article focuses on tricksters currently in popular media, mostly films and television, since art of tricksters in modern-day literature is difficult to find. Many thanks to the artists for allowing me to feature their gorgeous artwork in these articles.
So, how does the modern-day trickster compare to tricksters we discussed in past articles? Let’s find out.
But first, say hello to one of the most well-known and beloved tricksters of our time:

The Fairy Tale, A Lifelong ResonanceA thousand years tradition of scaring children at bedtime continues for children of all ages. News of the discovery of 500 “new” fairy tales collected over 150 years ago [link] in Germany and locked away in a forgotten archive has me thinking about the enduring importance of these narrative treasures in the lives of human societies worldwide. My worry, have fairy tales been marginalized by modernism?The Fairy Tale, A Lifelong Resonance in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

The Others Feature Again - Part 1Like many deviants, I have an alternate account where I post works which are a bit different than my normal fares. I also use the account to post random features. Sadly, because that account is not very popular, I always fear these wonderful pieces aren't quite getting the exposure they deserve. So, this is the first in a periodic series where I will showcase art featured in my mirz333 journals. If you like any of these pieces, be sure to fave it, or better yet comment on the deviation. Of course, a visit to the artist's gallery would be nice, too.The Others Feature Again - Part 1 in Art Features More Like This
Due to the semi-monthly-ish nature of my Alt features, I expect these articles will publish every 3-6 months.

5 Year Plan*Because I'll be teaching in about a week at SCAD, I've been thinking a lot about what to tell the students. And I wrote it out so that I could solidify it in my head. This stuff is for younger artists mostly, so feel free to skip.5 Year Plan in Personal More Like This
When I spend time with another comic artist, sometimes I'll ask, "What's your 5 year plan?" In other words, what steps is he taking in order to gain control over his career in order to move up the ladder? Usually I don't get much of an answer.
The reason I think many comic artists aren't forward-thinking has to do with the way our industry is set up. Whether by conscious design or through the neglect of its participants, younger freelancers get into a habit of complacency while hoping for a chance to suckle from the teet of a major publisher. Waiting around for a career doesn't promote the idea of freelancers taking active control of their OWN careers.
If I had to sum up the 5 Year Plan
