Not dead. Things just aren't good. I do hope to be back some day.
I guess I should updateStill out of work and desperately poor. I'm at the point where I don't know if I'll make it though the month. I haven't made rent yet and unemployment is running out soon. Might get extended, I don't know. All this stress has completely locked me down art-wise. I haven't been able to draw anything in months which sucks because I have a lot of outstanding commission orders that need to be done. This make me feel absolutely terrible. It's constantly on my mind how long these incredibly patient people have had to wait. It just adds to the stress that's keeping me from drawing. It's a horrible snowball effect. Stress and depression lead to artblock. Artblock leads to more stress and depression which leads to more artblock. I can't support myself on my art but I could be making some money if I could just draw again! And I can't in good conscience accept any new commission orders when I have so many that need to be done.
Well, anyway, I don't know what's going to happen. I very likely may be
Can't make rent. More added to sale.Well, I paid the landlord all I could today but I'm still short on the rent and they're not pleased. Basically, I've bought myself a few days until they start trying to evict me again. Which is, you know, just wonderful. Still haven't found a job. My unemployment is going to be running out next month, I think. Things are not good in Edland.
However, you may be able to help out. Please check out my emergency sale http://atomicpanda.com/omgsale.html, my Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/Atomicpanda and my shirt shop http://atomicpanda.spreadshirt.com/ (maybe if I sold another couple shirts I'd finally be able to get some money from Spreadshirt). I'm in the process of adding more stuff to both my sale page and my Etsy store. The holidays are coming up. Maybe you'll find a gift to give.
Commissions, I know I said I would not accept commissions until the ones I have are done but, desperate times and all that. I am now taking commissions as long as you understand that the ones I have alread
Trying to get back to normalIt's been a long time. I'm sorry. I've been in a very bad place which started with being fired from my job due to discrimination. Then there was a drawn out legal fight between my previous employer and myself over my ability to collect my unemployment insurance. I did finally win. However, it's not even enough to make rent each month and it's left me in very bad shape. I currently have about $10 to my name.
Needless to say, this did not help my depression, which no doubt has comes in large part from the reason I was discriminated against, and that I'm too poor to treat. With me, the deeper my depression and stress the harder it is for me to create. So, yeah, I haven't posted any art here in some time for that reason. It's also why I'm behind on several commissions. I feel really terrible about this. Which, of course, adds to my depression and stress.
Basically, I'm a mess.
But, I'm trying to get back to something like normal. First thing I have to do is make next months rent. I can't i
Hey DA!Is this asshole http://www.freelanced.com/freelancers/portfolio/slideshow.aspx?freelancerid=24044 claiming your work as his own? Better go check. All of "his" art in his portfolio seems to be stolen from various artists around here. One piece is from :iconpyawakit: for sure. Here's her journal entry about it http://pyawakit.deviantart.com/journal/43692081/
Anyway, here's hoping this art thief gets a one way ticket to art thief hell.
More shirts in shirt storeJust a heads up, I've added more shirts to my shirt shop.

Some of the profits from the CMC shirts will be used to by more pony toys for children's charities. Sadly, I haven't been able to do that lately due to losing my job back in June.

$20 commissions openI now have 10 $20 commission slots open.
A $20 commission gets you either a one character, inked drawing with no background [Example: http://eddieperkins.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2jf2j9 (without the blue)] or a one character, digitally colored pencil sketch with a very simple background [Example: http://eddieperkins.deviantart.com/art/Scootaloo-10-in-20-216322519 ].
These are digital commissions so you'll receive the art as a computer file. You'll get a very nice, large image that looks good on a computer screen and you will also receive a huge, high res image that you can take to any print shop and have printed out. You can do anything you want with these files other than claim authorship or use them commercially.*
As for what I'll draw, anything you want. The only restriction is no porn, though tasteful nudity / pin-ups are fine [Example: http://eddieperkins.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d3joj1h (but, you know, with one character)].
Due to having the oldest and tiniest Wacom tablet possi

Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!

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

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
