Wayne White: An Embarrassment Of TalentsWayne White: An Embarrassment Of Talents in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."
Please stop and say hello and welcome seewaynewhite in his first week at deviantART.

How to Train Your Dragon
The island of Berk once had a troublesome problem with looting airborne raiders, but thanks to Hiccup and his dragon/best friend, Toothless, a peaceful coexistence reigns in the Viking land. It wasn’t an easy undertaking to get to this point, but audiences all over have sure enjoyed the journey of these action packed films.
Pin-Up: From Objectification to EmpowermentIn researching the history of pin up art I found that before there were the “centerfold girls” there were the “pin-up calendar girls” – the semi-nude young women in lingerie whose photographs adorned calendars sold semi-legally from under the counters of gas stations and truck stops.Pin-Up: From Objectification to Empowerment in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recent

I hope everyone is getting excited about Halloween! I know I am... but there's also a lot going on here.
Mr. Cain and I have bought an old house in a city an hour from where we are now, and it's going to take a lot of time and energy and funds to fix it up. It was built in 1900, and it's lovely, but needs lots of work. And stuff. Like blackout curtains to keep the sun away. So, to keep our strength up, we require blood donations from mortals of at least a pint each, or a mason jar of lightning. Either will suffice.
Or, you can buy my prints. There is free worldwide shipping through Sunday, too!
I mean, if you're into that kind of thing. Normally, I'd open commissions under these circumstances, but, you know, I'll be busy sacrificing neighborhood pets to bless the new house and junk.
Also, I'm not sure if anyone will be interested, but I'm going to be sifting through my mountains of linework and sketches from my artwork, and

I've got SO much coming up the next few weeks! January 18th-19th I'll be celebrating Poe's 205th birthday at the Poe Museum in Richmond Virginia with new artwork, so come by and say hi if you're in the area! I'll also have a table with Autumn Haynes at the NecroComiCon February 21st-23rd in New Jersey! Very exciting! And if you'll be up there for the Wicked Faire (taking place next door) you should come by! I'm looking forward to seeing many of you there!
And if that's not enough, I just got a new apartment, and I'm moving the first week of February - because I'm insane! Moving while preparing for conventions is totally nuts. But that's my life! Nuts! So in honor of my depleting funds while I run around buying boring things like vaccuum cleaners and bath towels, and various other replacements of household objects that Mr. Cain kept when we split up, I'm opening commissions! I'll be able to take five at a time, and they're $90 USD for single characters and tattoos, and $150

I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide
