The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

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.

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

Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

I mean, the first semester is coming to a close--and for once I'm actually really sad about that--and that means finals and new classes. Christmas is in like... 1 day, so I'm super stoked about that, and work is finally getting better!
I'm really enjoying the people I work with, even if I do have to take a moment to recharge my social battery every once in a while, and now that I'm in the swing of things, I'm not really all that stressed out, either. Wednesday I work 9-5, but that should hopefully be my last 8 hour shift, especially since I'm finally moving to Kid's next week.

Luckily for me, I did my final performance in Drama yesterday, so I get to go home at 9:50 instead of going to Drama.
Sometimes I love having an A Day/B Day schedule. It's so much more relaxing.
Anyway, with my last final about to be printed and turned in, I'm done with my first semester. I'm actually kind of sad, because I really enjoyed this semester - even if work got in the way of my enjoyment. It was much more fun and a lot more exciting than I expected it to be, so I have high hopes for next semester.
I also have pretty high hopes for Senior Year, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
Well, that's about it.
Have a good day~!

That's right. It was me.
The other group got third, and overall we did really well. We even beat three groups of college students! I'm so happy about that.
I actually cried after the award was given to us I was so relieved and happy we had won even though we only had a week to prepare.
So that was great.
But I'm really upset right now because even though I told my manager at work that I couldn't work this week, I'm scheduled for 8 hours on Saturday. EIGHT HOURS. I AM SO STRESSED.
That's all, thanks for reading
Stuff and Things School started today, and that means 7 hours of being around people who infuriate me and/or people whom have no real grasp of what they're supposed to be doing. Luckily for me I have classes I like. Even if I do have to deal with someone I don't in the class I wanted to avoid them the most in. I'm just glad two of my best friends are also in that class so I can just... Ignore that person and hope they catch my drift.Stuff and Things in Personal More Like This
I know I'm going to love Creative Writing, especially because I'm so interested in furthering my writing abilities. It'll be a great class for me, I'm sure. The teacher is hilarious and we even play games in the hallway - which, admittedly, earned us looks from teachers in the classrooms just a bit down the hall. Not that we didn't laugh or anything, it was just kind of funny.
I have a free block on A days, which is nice. That means I can do homework or whatever when I'm not in Drama, and it's right before Algebra II, so that's perfect for me. It'll also help w

Guess Who's Home?It's me. Just in case you didn't know.Guess Who's Home? in Personal More Like This
I got home at 1 AM yesterday morning, and have been super jet lagged since then. When I woke up yesterday, I immediately wanted to go back to bed. I went out and got coffee with my dad, then we went to lunch, then we went back home. I had to literally dance around the kitchen to not fall asleep, since that was a very real probability all day.
The trip was amazing!! I really, really enjoyed myself the whole time, even though I was exhausted for 9/10 of it. It didn't really matter though, my tiredness only settled in when we were on trains or sitting idly somewhere, it didn't affect me otherwise.
Japan is super pretty! The sakura blossoms were in full bloom while we were there, and that just made everything super nice. Unfortunately it kind of played with my allergies a little bit, but other than that I was pretty much fine. Honestly, the worst part of the trip was coming home. And the 9 hour flights to and from Tokyo/Narita.
*sighs*I don't know what happened, but suddenly I'm really down and not very motivated to do anything. I had that incredible high last night at the Blue Man Group concert, and then I was sad again.*sighs* in Personal More Like This
I'm not sure if it's because I'm stressed over friends and social issues or what, but I feel like I'm kind of trapped right now.
Everything's caving in on me and I don't know what to do.
...Sorry for the sad, I just needed to vent.
Time for a Break...I've been super stressed and depressed as of late (Read: *sighs*), and all of my previous motivation to talk and interact with people has left me. I'm really not feeling up to doing anything at all any more, so I'll probably be taking a break from dA for a while.Time for a Break... in Personal More Like This
Most of my stress stems from the upcoming trip to Japan and the fact that I now have to provide most of my spending money through my work, which would mean running into Japan Club activities more often and just overall not being able to do a whole lot outside of school and work.
I've never been good with working a lot, especially not at a job like the one I have. I'm not very content with it, anyway, and I was kind of thinking of quitting, but now... I don't think I can.
It's just been really stressful for me.
Adding to that stress, my dad hurt his back and has been really snappy with me lately. It makes it stressful to even be around him, and I seriously considered just packing my things and leaving at

Do NOT take this personally.
Hi. My name is pixiepearl. I came here about a year ago. Since then the winx community has become disfunctional, alot of great artists have left the DA domain, and I personally am ashamed.
Why ashamed? Is it because everyday I have to read a journal entry about art being disgracefully stolen? Or maybe it's because there's always a spammer trying to annoy every user in this community. Or even the face that the latest bitch trend is TROLLING? I am personally ashamed that because of the disfunctio on this website has everyone having to look out for thieves and trolls, spammers and just plain creeps. But what makes me more ashamed that I can say maybe 10, 20 users have left because of this. Even after a huge misunserstanding over the summer between some of the Starlets I considered leaving, the only thing stopping me is m

Battleship (the movie)I didn't get to see Battleship in theaters, but I heard all the aftermath of it. The endless memes making fun of the fact they shoehorned in Aliens, the criticism that the aliens were just weird looking humans, the fact that it's based on a board game... I heard all of that before I saw the movie, and I anticipated that I was gonna hate it.Battleship (the movie) in Personal More Like This
But you know what? It's actually a lot of fun. The action is intense, the special effects are top notch, the acting isn't too corny or eye-rolling, and it pretty much delivers on everything that you'd expect a board game inspired movie would feature.
What I liked most was how the special effects were actually on display. It wasn't like Transformers where you can never tell what the eff is going on. While there are some odd camera zooms during the action, the action itself is always framed in such a way that you can tell what's going on at all times. I like action movies like that. I hate action movies that utilize shaky cams and rapid cutting to giv
