AnnouncementI have long run out of ideas worth a try, so I am open for a few requests. Of course, I'll do them for free, just for the fun of it. Since I am not easily sold on someone else's ideas, you'll have to think outside the box, and bring out something good enough to intrigue me.
perfect timing to catch the fluIt's the coming of springtime. Could it be any different for me?UPDATE: got shingles too!!!!!!!!!! Arguably, I have been under emotional and physical strain for too long...
Blatantly optimisticIt's a joke, of course. Just thought I could make a little update to my journal.If you don't like it, try and find a better one when you're running short of arguments!
Get past this.My brother's wedding made enough an excuse for me to finish a picture that's been long lingering under layers of dust and oblivion. I am in a creative mood now, folk, but I have also become very hard to handle.There is a radio in my head ... and these days it keeps on telling me I should never stop dreaming.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tQHVVfW3dM
Alright!Finally I understand how to edit this bloody page!
Concerning Trent ReznorLast Friday NineInchNails were performing in Milan and I was there. On that occasion, Trent Reznor proved to be an amazing artist. Shame he is going to retire and leave the music business for a long, very long while. Incidentally 10 years have passed since I first made acquaintance with his music. All started with "the Fragile" album. Since then Trent Reznor's artistry has accompanied me along ten bloody years: from the day I began first to attend university, and beyond, when I started working in there (and still now, as I am thinking of leaving it). His taste and poetry have shaped much of my imaginary, and helped me endure through hardships and confusing times.Knowing one of the few I deem an artist is willing to sit back tells my heart some things are to end. A part of me is whispering: everything is going to look a bit more colorless than it usually looks like - says it. As things around us change, I am driven to judge myself and what I have done. I am turning 29 and I
Nineteen places that no longer existHere you get 19 shots of some places I chanced to see before they were destroyed or changed irremediably. Each picture is all that remains of a place you all have lost, and you'll never see in person. At some point in the future, I will start removing one pic after another, leaving five only.Let me know which ones should survive.
Odd magics rule indeed--For some reason I cannot account, the most recent entry to my journal was trimmed out during the last major upgrade at deviantart. So for the last two weeks, whoever managed to enter the Dreammaze could only read an old message of mine, dating back to August 2008. A message of surrender. But things have changed along the way, and have been keeping moving these months, even if I cannot tell how far they have improved. Most importantly, I have been drawing pretty much, considering my standards. I am working on a comic and I have reached page 67. The only negative is, I cannot show you the results. If everything goes fine as I wish, you will probably have a nice surprise. For now, you have to wait for a while. Perhaps I will post more drawings, but you will see, what I am working on will be worth the wait!
I hate manga and anime.Recently, someone told me that she likes Anime and Manga because they are avenues for limitless imagination, and without rules.I couldn't believe what I was hearing, because my own experience is utterly opposite: Anime and Manga are quite possibly the least creative, most rule-infested genre of art. I can speak with some authority on this subject because I've lived in Japan (the home of anime and manga) for seven years.In fact, I OWN some rulebooks about manga and anime, despite avoiding that genre with the same dedication with which a diabetic avoids sugar. I've also watched interviews with manga artists as they discuss the rules of manga/anime, and hung out on a Manga-for-artists website before discovering DeviantArt.Consider the following rule set, and ask yourself a) is it true? b) what sort of stifling rulebook and lifestyle forced these artists to stay well within the rules, only trying to break away from the pack by taking the rules of cuteness, sexiness, violence, and good-v

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam! I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
