PAUL CEZANNE: The Bridge from Monet to Picasso
Untitled by FilledArles
January 19 marks the birthday of Paul Cezanne in 1839.
By the time of his death in 1906, he was recognized, especially by younger artists, as the genius who began his career under the tutelage of impressionist Camille Pissarro, and then went on to become the “architect” who reduced the subjects of his paintings to cylinders,

In The Shadow of Dragons
"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"

Firefly by Lucas-Zebroski
Even though the television show Firefly only aired for 1 season in 2002, it is mourned by fans till this day. The space-western comedy-drama featuring a renegade crew of misfits who raided to the ends of the universe in their spaceship, Serenity, and called it an honest day’s work, was quick to steal many a viewer’s heart.
Creator Joss Whedon drew inspiration from many sources for the show. Inspiration

So impersonal until I knew the author.
His words struck me like a cord of music.
Do I believe him now? Yes.
To believe these that are inside me.
To not hold back the hopeless romantic that I am due to fear of getting hurt again.
To open my vulnerability to my best friend who has only just discovered my existence.
For him, I will try.
Is to be there for him because I know he needs it just as much as me.
Is not letting him take the brunt of the abuse, even if he thinks it will help.
Is tenderly kissing him no matter how my friends feel.
Is the goal both of us are striving for.
He is finally mine, and I am not letting that go.

Be smushed and crushed and demolished in some other place.
My heart is not for you. My soul is not for you.
I don't need your clutter anymore.
You do not deserve my tears. My emotions shall not be focused on you anymore.
I will grow from this. For every destruction allows for new life to grow.
The seeds of hope have been planted. Soon they will sprout with new thoughts.
New words. Softer thoughts. Kindness towards myself and other.
Peace will ingrain itself into my psyche that I will have no choice but to be calm.
Emotions will be pure. Happiness will flow without being forced.
If I want to smile, I will. If I don't, I won't. These are my life rules now.
Goodbye baggage. I wish you the best of your destructive life.

For Ben Pruitt
Sleepy actions can be just as open and truthful as those of a drunken man.
Much more healthy for the body, for sure.
Last night ~ priceless.
He asked me what I thought of his sweet nothings - worried I was bothered by his giant romantic streak - NEVER!
Muttering, half asleep, that I of course adored his words sweeter than honey; I asked for more, something I never asked for when awake.
I asked for his love for me.
I can only imagine what he felt at my curled up figure saying that cuddled against his warm body.
As we began. Tangled the next morning he brought up the whispers in the night.
Both terrified of rejection, our youth, and the devotion required for those words...

I had tuck it in a corner
Like a note to inspire myself later during my dark days
Or money left in a coat pocket four years later.
Do you know where I found my smile, reader?
With a friend, someone I had entrusted with my vulnerability.
That's what my smile is, you know? Vulnerable, unprotected, and un-phased by the scars on my heart.
I unknowingly gave it to him because like a Wolf who protects its cubs,
He protected my smile even in the darkest of times.
He was always opinionated but never judging.
Thank you for keeping my smile safe.
Now that I have it back,
May offer to protect yours?

Religion is a Mental Disorder?And atheists wonder why they're the most distrusted group in America? It's crap like this, atheists!Religion is a Mental Disorder? in Personal More Like This
Recently, a YouTube atheist called Livelife8072 started a video series in which he explains how religion is a mental disorder. What's even more face-palmingly painful is that he openly admits at the beginning of his video that he's not a medical professional and that he's merely expressing his opinion--and yet he still expects us to take his "analysis" seriously!
And what does his non-expert medical "analysis" consist of? Well, other than providing anecdotal evidence, and starting every other line of dialogue with "I think" or "I believe", he compares people dancing and singing in church to mental patients in a insane asylum.
Clearly this man is en route to obtaining a Nobel Peace Prize!

No More Unauthorized ArtworkRegarding the debate of whether comic artists should continue selling unauthorized prints/sketches of characters they don't own, I think Bissette and his legal advisor are 100% correct. So from now on, I won't be doing any sketches or commissions at shows of any character that I don't own. Am I rolling over in fear of Marvel? Maybe, but as it states below, they're in their legal right to come after me if there's ever a dispute. I love to complain about the Big Two, but I can't (in good conscience) get upset at them if I'm breaking the rules myself. Being DC exclusive, maybe I can get a waiver that allows me to sketch DC characters, so I'll keep you updated.No More Unauthorized Artwork in Personal More Like This

5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)There are lots of tips, chestnuts, and other pieces of advice that I've heard over the years--tidbits of wisdom passed on from one generation to the next, from professional to professor to prospective student. Some of them are drawing tips, some of them are tricks to dealing with publishers, and some are general guidelines on how to survive in comics. Most of them are useful and true and will stand the test of time, but a few of them have become hackneyed platitudes and have gone unquestioned for too long.

1. READERS WILL ONLY LOOK AT A PANEL FOR 5 SECONDS, SO DON'T SWEAT IT TOO MUCH.
I understand the intention of this bit of wisdom, and I mostly agree with it: drawing great interiors is important, but at the same time, you don't want to get bogged down with small details that most readers won't even notice.
But here's my concern with this: if you treat every panel like it's disposable, then you're less likely to make an impact with reader
Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years) in Personal More Like This
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de

MLK dayToday we celebrate Martin Luther King day and remember what he went through to united everyone with non-violence and love. He wanted Americans, both Black and White, to live in co-existence and in peace and he had succeeded.MLK day in Personal More Like This
But now these days race riots erupted across America after the shooting of Michael Brown, who shoplifted and assaulted a police officer followed by another for selling illegal cigarettes. This is not what MLK jr. would really wanted. He knows that violence only leads to more violence. If he were still alive today, he'll probably scold Michael Brown's parents, racist Al Sharpton and the SJW for not only citing race riots, but becoming racists themselves. Something more or less like this:
Even his son MLK III disapproves the race riots himself.
But it no surprise that the Far-Left will do anything to mutilate MLK Jr's dream and replace it with Malcolm X's dream. But that would be for my future journal posts on them.

About 4% of our population believes that are politicians are are shape-shifting aliens called Reptilians.

The problem with facing Islam and IsisThe problem with this one is that you are facing an ideology. It is harder to destroy than a normal enemy. In order to destroy it you must either do it via: propaganda, bring more ruthless than the enemy could ever hope to be, kill any who hold that belief as to strike terror in their hearts so they won't do so again. It's harder to fight an ideal than an enemy nation for you can't topple a government and replace it.The problem with facing Islam and Isis in Personal More Like This
For example WW2 was quicker. Fascism was an ideal but it was specific to that nation. Italy, Germany, and Japan were thoroughly toppled and had regime replacements thus ending fascism there. Other fascists regimes like Romania or Spain either laid low out of fear from the Allies or were consumed from communism. Even as a fascist myself I acknowledge the Allies were a good enemy and defeat was delivered soundly. That was the end of fascism but the Soviet Union was a different story.

Similar to none in the family.
Its shield is thin, the mask could break,
And yet the mask is all we see.
It could be beautiful, if it tried,
Yet it hides in the leaves, afraid to be.
But oh, how curious, when we remove its leaves,
And cook it, it becomes a delicacy.
