Hello! Thank you for dropping by my page and galleries. Thanks to all my DA watchers and creative friends. Won't you please introduce yourself, and tell me what brought you to my page?

As you can see from my DA journal entries (and website blog, if you choose to visit there), I've got some definite opinions about art and the creative processes of artists like us. The bio below is partly from last year, but still works for 2018 just to give you a sense who I am:

Please check out my website and blog as well, and sign up for an outrageous newsletter. emcanimator.com/ I think it's worth your while to take part in and contribute to the discussion.

I'm continuing to explore the prospects of turning serious writing I’ve been working on for years into graphic novels that explore ideas on intolerance and inequality -- whether it be racial, sexual preferences or gender orientation, age, economic or social status -- and the process of discovery of one's place in existence.

My art is humanist, asserts and celebrates that people matter, aiming to champion the humanity of all children, women and men – and the natural universe in which we exist.

My art is subversive, using visual and literary metaphor to subvert dominant patriarchal and intolerant cultural practice, even if flying in the face of "popular" opinion. We create our own reality -- and the monsters that show up in it through abuse, abandonment and neglect.

There’s more to reality than what we experience simply through our immediate physical senses. My art is mystical art, describing through visual metaphor the indescribable, and making visible the invisible.

Art is my spiritual practice. (By "spiritual", I mean whatever journey one may be on to find wholeness and meaning in life. If you don’t like the word “spiritual”, that’s fine, and I can live with that. I hope you get the spirit of my practice.)

Comments are welcome.

Some of the work displayed here are available for sale at:

Prints, though I'm considering whether Patreon or Liberapay would be better options. Thoughts?

If you like what you see here, please give me a "Like" or "Follow" on:
Facebook,
Instagram,
Twitter, though I'm just figuring out why I should be on Twitter;

My 3D modeling, animations and videos--mostly old stuff, but some new, also:
Vimeo, I'll likely work on some time lapses this year;

..AND definitely check in at my website and blog, purchase the art originals and maybe even sign up for the outrageous newsletter:

Hello, friends. My desktop computer has been in the shop a week now. I might need to have the drive wiped and the OS reloaded. My apologies if I don't immediately thank all of you who visit or gift me with llamas, faves and comments. I appreciate you all, but find typing with one finger on my smartphone tedious and time-sucky.

2/21 UPDATE: Up and running. Now to reload all my legacy apps. :angry:

Hello there! :w00t:

 I can see beatiful artworks you've got, wishing you the best :heart:

 I was wondering if you'd like to take a look on my works and give feedback in order to encourage artists like me to be more productive? 

Thanks a lot in advance :heart:

Rukia, hi. Thank you for your kind words. Perhaps I'm not the right person to be giving you feedback, as our styles of work are very different. You are very productive, and from my limited perspective quite technically competent. All I can offer you is encouragement to keep at it, and keep developing those aspects of your art that make you different and unique from other artists of the same genre.
Cheers,
Ed

You're very welcome, Keith. Thank YOU. Comic art will figure very heavily in my upcoming literary works; and I can certainly afford to learn from competent artists like yourself.
Regards,
Ed
