Interview with Mooching-Leech1. Why do you draw in a colorful anime style? What about that style appeals to you?More Like This
I think it's safe to assume I am a huge Anime/Manga fan X) Growing up I watched a lot of Anime and I always noticed how colorful it was. Not just speaking about colors but the characters themselves. Their eyes, their hair, their personality, it was something very different from what I was use to seeing in other cartoons and I believe it was because of that that I decided to draw in this style.
2. What is your favorite MCR-related drawing in your gallery and why? Also, do you have any interesting stories about your art?
Right now my favorite is "I'm Still Here." It was my first time using a whole new program that is still alien to me but the whole being of the drawing spoke a lot to me. I like to believe that there's a part of us from the past that never dies or is fighting to stay alive and I think Black Parade Gerard was a great example for this.

During an exclusive interview with KROQ jock Stryker, EDM superstar Deadmau5 talked about his recent collaboration with My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, the song “Professional Griefers,” and how it came together organically.
“I haven’t really known him that long in the way that I’d like to say, ‘I know that guy,’” Deadmaus said regarding his relationship with the MCR singer. “I don’t 100 percent know Gerard or where his head’s at, but I like where it’s going. I kind of connected with him on the level that he’s almost in the same position I am. He’s amid a sea of emo rock bands, you know what I mean? I’m in the middle of a sea of DJs and stuff like that, so we both had that connection. I felt it was a kind of cool collab, b
Let's talk about bullying.I know this may come as a shock to most of you (a-hem), but I was a weird kid. I was awkward. I had funny hair and bad skin. I liked creepy things. All those "mean" teachers who seemed like they hated everyone? They loved me. Meanwhile, some of the really popular teachers were calling my parents to express concern over the stories I wrote (for which I can't actually blame them. Subtlety, like pimples, takes time to master). So, yes, I got my share of bullying. Every day. Everywhere. And the sad part is? There were kids who had a rougher time of it than me, but I didn't feel like I could stand up for them without making my own situation worse.More Like This
It shouldn't be like that, but it still is. You can tell kids "It won't be like this forever" but it's impossible to see that far ahead when just getting through each day without being noticed is an impossible feat. Just when you think you've had a good day, some well-meaning Home Ec teacher gives you an award in front of the whole school
Inspiration feature (part 1)I’ve been collecting great photos for inspiration and at times like this I wish I had a photography group, because I found some truly amazing pictures that deserve to be featured. Well I’m not making a photography group, but I found dozens of photos that aren’t officially Killjoy-related but remind me a lot of the concept. I think a lot of these are very inspiring, so hopefully you think so too. First are two Killjoy features, then one for the desert and BL/ind / Battery City.More Like This
Note: These photos are NOT stock, so do not use them in photomanips or drawings without permission.
Also, remember that none of these are intentionally Killjoy-related, so it’s not wise to try submitting them to MCR groups or anything.

I could get really fucking pissed off and say that I hate this guy and everyone misusing 'amen' to what he was saying.
But, you know what, no. I'm going to be the better person here. I don't hate people, in fact, what I'm standing up for is love. Love. Not locking people who are just loving eachother in a giant pen with an electrocuted fence for the rest of their lives.
That is so cruel and unjust and, I'm just going to say it, fucking ridiculous, that I can't even wrap my mind around it. You're treating intelligent, loving, wonderful human beings as you would treat cockroaches. Not even that, with cockroaches you'd just step on 'em and that would be the end, but no, instead you want to slowly starve 'lesbians and queers' until they die. Do you even understand how painful a death by starvation is? Not to mention, they would be cut off from everyone else they happen to love.

PE - The Beef with BasesWelcome to the Beef with Bases article. This may get a little controversial, so put on your heavy duty hats!More Like This
By now, we should all know what a base is. But just for a refresher - A base is a bald, naked figure for people to 'doll' clothes onto. Lately, more people have been making animal bases as well. Some argue that since they can't be dressed up, they aren't proper bases. But a base is a vague term to begin with.
Why do so many people make bases? What's the allure? Many people just start doodling and end up with a body they don't plan on finishing. So why let it go to waste? They fix it up a bit and let other people use it, so maybe others will find inspiration where theirs left off. Other times people are inspired by a pose, and want to practice their anatomy and draw the body. Sometimes people even have an idea in mind - say... a big set of mermaid poses! And more frequently, people see a piece of art t

Nor was it when we first held hands.
It wasn't even our first kiss,
It was when he looked at me and said "If you treat everything like it's going to end us, it will. If you treat it like it can be solved, we'll figure it out."
That's when I realized that falling in love is like learning to dance.
It can be hard and awkward at times,
Or smooth and beautiful.
But everybody has their own steps,
Their own method to life.
He is a tango; confident, constantly moving and very outgoing.
I am a waltz; Slow, controlled and never venturing too far from what I know.
Learning to love him was learning to step forward and speak my mind, to try new things and to trust.
Learning to love me was learning to slow down and stay in at times, to act gently and to think ahead.
Once we fell in love, we learned to dance each others dance,
And to meet in the middle.
We then developed a new dance;
It's fast-paced with light steps, gentle but flashy...

And wake the world anew.

As we tread in the early morning dew.
