He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.
In 1979, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon craft

The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”

1. My OCs are based on various Greek Myths. Such as Irene being Aphrodite, Aslan being Heruclese (heck, he's even named after the Nemean Lion), and Benoit after Narcissus (he's actually sort of a mix or Narcissus and Eros). I have some art of this..somewhere.
2. Aslan's name means lion- he also drinks this stuff called Arak, which in Turkey and other places is nicknamed "The Milk of Lions"
3. In his original design, Benoit used to be more heavily built, shorter, had a goatee with slicked-back hair, and was Italian. His name was also Lorenzo. (Hi Kit if you're reading this, I borrowed him)
4. Aslan's eyes used to be hazel until he had a run-in with a djinni and was cursed. It is unknown whether or not he has any magical properties such as the werewolf demoman or zombie skins in canonical TF2 verse.
5. Do not ask Aslan if he grants wishes. He does not like it.

Since I don't want to give spoilers, I won't tell you too much about the movie or how it ends. I will, however, tell you this - the movie is a very serious sequel hook. When this movie was originally announced, most people thought it will be the final DBZ movie. That doesn't seem to be true at all, since this movie literally expands the DBZ universe. Also (and this is something that really surprised me) the movie is CANON. It's not like most of the other DBZ movies which are made just for fun or to show some alternate scenarios and whatnot. "Dragon ball Z - Battle of Gods" is canon to the "Dragonball" manga.

Well, okay, he's not an Egyptian rabbit, he's apparently a cat-like being, or a Chihuahua, or possibly a type of jackal, since people have assumed he's based of Anubis, the Egyptian God of the Underworld. It's just that, when I watched the Youtube clips, people have said how he looks like an "Egyptian Rabbit" so I had to make a joke out of it. Let's be honest, he does look like that in the poster, doesn't he?

Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.Respect Yourself in Personal More Like This
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

Going to China!It's been almost five years since I last visited my homeland, and I'm excited and scared at the same time.Going to China! in Personal More Like This
My last visit in 2009 left me a bit traumatized but I think I'm okay now. My stepmother and half brother in China had tried to kill me with a kitchen knife. I was shaking and crying when I escaped in a taxi that night. After that event, I couldn't feel safe anymore. I changed my flight to return to the US sooner, and never wanted to go back again.
But that's in the past now. I miss my grandparents and other relatives. I miss the food, the cicadas, the unique mountainscape of Sichuan, and ever dwindling bits of the old city that's quickly being replaced by skyscrapers.
I'm looking forward to seeing how much China has changed. Though I'm not looking forward to breathing that air. Air pollution is such a constant health hazard that I had to buy hundreds of dollars worth of respirators for me and my grandparents. I will also be buying air purifiers (that's another five hundred dollars

Coming OutIt's true, I am Chinese and I was born this way.Coming Out in Personal More Like This
At a young age I began to notice this difference. I was attracted to neither boys nor girls. In middle school, I liked math, and in college, I did my homework all night long.
Being Chinese is not a choice, it is genetic. There are risks to being Chinese because society cannot accept the union between a human and a textbook. I have Chinese friends who didn't need sex because they could foreplay instruments and get screwed by O Chem instead. Now, they don't have a social life and are shunned by others.
But fear not, life will get better. I grew up as a Chinese and I am proud of it (just look at my tumblr user name Maid-en-China ). There is the LGBTC (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Chinese) community to help you be comfortable with your Chinese orientation.
1,338,299,512 people came out as Chinese. You are not alone.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art
