Days of Doodles
Mindful Meditation of Daily Drawing
Foreword by techgnotic
Gabriel Picolo is a graphic design student in Brazil who has provided at least two people—me and himself—a most compelling reason for getting out of bed every morning in 2014. He calls it the 365 Days of Doodles Project, for which he creates, each day, one of his wildly imaginative pencil sketch and ink drawings (quite a bit more elevated than a “doodle”—more like a free-flowing meditation).

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

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta

Ok, so I've promised this post for a long time ago and here it is, at last.
This will be mainly about Haruno Sakura, the female member of Team 7, the heroine of this story, wether you like it or not. I am not here for your shipping wars, I could care less about it as I am a multi-shipper and in the end I'm going to get what I want, while some of you will be whining over the fact that your pairing didn't get to be cannon.
I like Sakura as a character, not because she's been made for the sake of a pairing. I like Sakura because she is so perfect with her imperfections, yes, imperfections, that any of the people nowadays could be.
I am saying this because I am looking at the people bashing her and they're not even 10% of what she is/represents, yet people bash her just to make Hinata look bette
Naruto manga: Sakura, The Heroine.Many use this excuse to bash on Sakura that "OMG, even Kishi himself said Hinata would make a better Heroine than Sakura". At first, knowing how fond Kishi is for Sakura, seemed a little out of his way and since I wasn't involved that much with the fandom, I didn't cared about it.Naruto manga: Sakura, The Heroine. in Personal More Like This
But as I got involved and got into debates about Sakura, not mentioning those with the haters, explaining that Sakura isn't the type of Heroine people should expect given the fact that Kishi wants to emphasize other things through her character, this argument was always brought to me, that Hinata made a better heroine and that Kishi even stated so.
As well, not to mention I saw someone on Tumblr saying that even on Narutopedia wrote that. I went there myself. Saw it. It does. They say that in an interview from 2010, Kishi stated that.
First, they don't even know which interview. It was the Jump Festa interview 2010. I mean, if their seriousness and professionalism would be indeed, as they make it look, they w

II. How one can become stronger by protecting the ones important for them.
Now let's take them one by one.
I. Shinobi = emotionless tools.
A tool called Shinobi.
As Kakashi and Zabuza start fighting throughout these two fighting, Kishi introduces to us the concept of the what a true Shinobi meant at that time, as I stated before, as Zabuza said that he gained a high quality tool for himself, a fighting machine known as a Shinobi who doesn't have a heart nor fear of death. Furthermore Kishi explaines how one, in order to become that perfect tool, has to erase its humanity like Zabuza has done with Haku by training him from his early ages.
While Kakashi and Zabuza fight, he orders Sakura to stay and protect Tazuna because this fight is seri

I have a word to say to every YouTube reviewer out there… Do you guys really consider yourself reviewers? Do you know what even means to do a proper review on a piece of art you're doing? Or you misunderstand personal opinion as a review?
If you don't know, the all-mighty Google will help you. All I have to say is this: SHAME ON YOU! And not because I am a Sakura fan, far from it. But because all the reviewers I have personally watched, barely have a clue about what they are reviewing, how to do it, what really makes a review, so on and so forth.
Now, let me make my own review and show you what it really means. Yes, I might sound cocky and

Avoid UbisoftA while back, just after I had completed whichever iteration of Assassin’s Creed involved the pirate guy, I said that Watchdogs was probably going to be a crap game. A number of people said I was wrong to badmouth a game without playing it, but my argument was that you could gauge the quality of an upcoming title by the studio/publisher’s previous output. With that in mind, it’s fairly obvious that Ubisoft’s preferred method is to dazzle the weaker minded with pretty, pretty graphics in order to sell as many copies as possible before someone points out that the game actually plays like a dog (which – what ho - is exactly what Watchdogs did).Avoid Ubisoft in Personal More Like This

RetardA couple of people (literally only two, but it's a matter worth mentioning) emailed me after they had read the most recent Sequential Art strip, in which the fictitious element “Retardium” is mentioned. Both messages voiced disapproval at my using the word “Retard” due to its slang referencing of the mentally disabled.Retard in Personal More Like This
That interpretation of the word, in my eyes, is outdated.
Used in describing a mentally disabled individual, “retard” is a slur, and (as with any slur) anyone who says it in that context deserves a sharp blow to the head. However, used to describe a “wilfully ignorant, able-bodied idiot”, I think “retard” is perfectly acceptable. I’ll wager that everyone reading this knows someone that can accurately be described as a "f**king retard", none of whom are disabled in the slightest, nor in using the word is a mentally disabled person even thought of.
I’ve not heard “retard” used to des

Important News on the MLP ComicIt looks to be pretty official, according to our editor, that the MLP comic has been pushed back two weeks to Nov 28 for street release date.Important News on the MLP Comic in Personal More Like This
Before anybody gets upset (like one jerk on Twitter did), keep in mind the scope of this production: This is not a fanmade comic as some seem to think it is: This is a fully licensed comic book from a major Comic publisher done in cooperation with Hasbro. It is also one of the most highly anticipated comics for the entire fall/winter schedule. As such, we'd rather do it well than do it fast.
The orders for this book have far exceeded what was first anticipated, so a little more padding in the schedule is going to help to ensure the product can meet the demand
I also want to remind everyone: I am NOT The distributor/publisher... I just draw it. You cannot purchase the book directly from me. Here's some ground I've covered a number of times, but I keep getting asked... so here we go:

I haven't had the time until now. A freak heat wave meant school got out super-early today, giving me a few hours to draw up this page. BUT, More importantly, it gave me the time to write the script for the rest of the comic! Now I know exactly what to draw
