I finally finished my horror comic! It took a very long time! You can read it all right here: www.joeruff.net/what-lives-in-…
April 15th, 2013So this is an essay I wrote last time something really horrible happened, and tonight after a few drinks I finished it.
December 17th, 2012
So I'm sitting in Panera, eavesdropping on a nearby table as they talk
about the recent tragedy in Connecticut. There's one guy and two
girls, all in their mid twenties, all quite good looking and all quite
You can tell some people are idiots just by the sound of their voice.
I hear them cycle through just about every talking point they've
recently seen on the news. Informing each other of all the new grisly
developments, in grisly detail. They even take a minute to bash the
insensitivity of the media, ignoring the fact that they've been eating
this shit up for 36 hours and counting.
I'm torn between my anger with the press for giving this psychopath
exactly the kind of national attention he was looking for and outrage
at the public for their endless appetite for such stories. Chicken or
the egg, I suppose.
The guy at the tabl
So music is art, right?So I'm in a band and we just finished our first EP, which you can now hear at http://pigeonsmusic.bandcamp.com
Music and making music has been a big part of my life for a long time, but this is by far the most ambitious thing I've done. I do the singing and the acoustic guitaring for the group and anybody who likes music should give it a listen, because we all worked really hard on it.
Thanks for the fav...Can we just stop saying it altogether?
I hate writing it because it always feels so fake, and I hate receiving those comments because they always sound so obligated.
Now, having someone fav your work is a great compliment and I always appreciate the hell out of it it, but I just think that at this point, that phrase has become mandatory, and has therefore lost any and all sincerity.
So, while I don't want to seem ungrateful for all the faves I'll receive in the future, I'm just not going to say it anymore and I would encourage everyone else to do the same.
Most profiles I see on here are all exactly the same, with their endless lists of identical comments.
Thanks for the fav!
Thanks for the fav!
Thanks for the fav!
And it just seems a little silly at this point.
So I'm going to say this one last time for everyone who has ever faved my work.
THANKS FOR THE FAV!
I really do appreciate it from the bottom of my heart, but I think that phrase has become a
TUMBLR!I've got one now so if you've got one go ahead and add me at http://nomoreraincomic.tumblr.com
WEBCOMIC!Because comics are awesome to make, I've started a weekly webcomic! It's called, "No More Rain," and it's completely themeless. Just whatever I feel like drawing that week.
This week I felt like drawing little boys and their hot moms, and you can read and follow it at www.nomoreraincomic.blogspot.com How the heck do you do those automatic link thingies?
Anyway tell all your friends, I'd like for this thing to be read by as many people as possible and to propel me to stardom and fame! I've already decided what next week's one will be about.
'The Tragic Comedy of My Car Door'About a month after I first bought my car from Henry, who lives on Amherst St. in Colonia, NJ, I realized the inside door handle had begun to crack. A few months afterwards the handle completely broke off, and I had to then roll my window down and use the outside handle every time I needed to get out. Little while after that my Father was able to tie a string around the gadget that opens the door, so by pulling the string my door would open. Soon enough however, the string broke and so once again I have to roll my window down and use the outside handle. Finally the other day it had snowed and when I went to open my door it was stuck. Now this was very common as it had frozen shut plenty of times before, so I just began pulling harder...and harder...I realized something was amiss but decided I'd investigate the matter further after just ONE MORE PULL...
That's when the front piece of my door handle broke off.
When I climbed inside f
about deviantart eclipse.(added stuff)personally, i don't like the new layout-at all. i just needed to get this off my chest.
deviantart is the last website that's good for art, the whole reason why i buy core and remain active here is because i can fully express myself with custom boxes and stuff. profile customization is one of the best things about it, now it's gonna be "sleek" and "modern" like every other website-
although i do see a lot of people who are pleased with the layout, which makes me hope that they'll at least make the old version available for those who prefer it.
if you're like me and you're extremely upset about this change, the best way to reach the staff is through this survey:
it seems like almost everybody commenting on the beta test journal has got the same idea that i do- but unfortunately i dont know if the staff is going to pay attention to the comments on here so i urge you to please consider fill

Do you know what fires your imaginationEverybody has an imagination. Some of us have learned to use ours better than others. People say they aren't creative, but everybody is creative, because everybody has an imagination.
Imagination needs to be fed, but not necessarily in the form your medium. Because that is akin to cannibalism to me.
Do you know what fires your imagination?
-- Justin Maller ekud
spyed: Why do creative people need a community?
ekud: Everybody needs a community, it's a deviation from the norm to have creativity be a defining characteristic of your person. A central tenant of your life. However you want to say it. So to find a group of people that share that, and have that affinity, is a basic human need. To have affinity with others.
spyed: Does having access to a community of like-minded people help the creative process in your view?
ekud: Sharing your affinity with others is what's going to feed that basic need that you're not necessarily going to be able to find within arms
Happy 15th Birthday!In April I wrote a post reflecting on my 15 years at DeviantArt, since the project began in April of 2000 and was launched to the public on August 7th. I went back and re-read what I wrote, and wow, speaking of audacious I'm pretty hardcore in this post. I write from my heart sometimes and then I hit post and that's that. So for our official 15th Birthday I wanted to re-share a link to that post:
And then today, I wrote this reflection for you as a toast & thanks for all the llamas:
Happy 15th Birthday DeviantArt! We are evolving, and soon we will be able to share exactly how you can be a part of our transformation, ensuring that the DeviantArt we all love grows stronger in supporting the visual & written arts for 15 more years to come! You will soon see us release many years of effort, repositioning DeviantArt from all we have learned over our 15 years of managing the worlds largest creator community.
Thank you for all of your support over the
Summer Life Update/SDCC 2018Hi y'all! Just a quick life update, in case you're curious what I've been up to:
At last, this spring I graduated from San Jose State this with a Bachelor's of the Arts in Animation and Illustration, and his summer, I've been working as an intern with Sony Playstation. Specifically, I'm an animator working with their studio Pixelopus on the upcoming game Concrete Genie... so far, I'm loving it! The new job also meant moving out of my hometown, probably for good this time-- The new apartment is much closer to San Francisco now, which is exciting! Expensive, though. Woof.
I'm still doin' my usual comic freelancing: recently I've worked on Archie's Cosmo #5 and IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog #4 and the upcoming Sonic #8. Keep an eye out for that last one... not only does it introduce Silver to the series, but an all-new character! I'll be at San Diego Comic-Con on July 19th, as a panelist on the Sonic the Hedgehog panel to talk about it and later do signings at IDW's b
