Getting More SocialHi there!
I've decided to make it a point to be MORE social on this site. This means stuff like:
Responding to commentsResponding to followsResponding to Likes and Fav's
In terms of responding to followers that one is a low bar. Responding to Likes and Fav's? That one I find weird. If someone likes my work, awesome, but writing a thank you on their wall? Actually saying it makes sense, but the only thing I'm worried about is... catching up.
Okay, check out the work, more coming soon.

FREE EGYPT!I'm not much of a writer, but I did want to express some of my thoughts on this:
The image above is the poster I created after hearing and seeing what was going on in Egypt. To some degree, the fact that I love my home country of America so much, and everything it stands for (Freedom, Democracy) made it more real for me. The fact that they had someone who ran their country in a "State of Emergency" for 30 years, rigged elections, stole from his people... it's essentially the American Nightmare.
On January 25th, 2011, the people of Egypt took to the streets to protest against a government that they felt was false. They demanded that their "president", elected in fraudulent elections for 30 years, leave office immediately so that they could have truly free elections and a government that they felt really reflected their concepts and values.
While many of us can't fight in the streets with them, I wanted to do something to show my solidarity with them and give myself and
ART AUCTIONS! Help the CBLDF!I'm selling a few prints of my tour posters on eBay right now, and the auctions end next Sunday, January 16th.
Each print is a measly $25, and each one is on 80lbs vellum paper stock and looks GREAT! Not only that, but you can also help out a worthy charity!
10% of all the profits will go to The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund! Yes, the CBLDF! The First Amendment Right group for Comic Book artists and cartoonists!
Up for auction are my Gig Posters for Obituary, Between the Buried and Me, Devin Townsend, Anvil, and Municipal Waste!
So go to eBay and BID BID BID!!!!
January 2011 Wallpaper!Well, its a new year, and with it, new hopes and promises! I've decided to do monthly wallpapers in collation with the months of my calendar, which is still for sale at Zazzle.com! SO BUY IT, DAMN IT! Pick out your size and download it for yourself.
To view the wallpaper and sizes, please head over to my blog: http://larrywestproductions.blogspot.com/2011/01/january-2011-xecutioner-wallpaper.html
New Website in the Works!After roughly 3 months worth of work, my new website is nearly done! The design is some of my most ambitious yet, and in terms of the CSS and XHTML coding... this is, easily, some of my best work. Throw in some awesome jQuery stuff, and this is going to be sweet!
There will also be a ton of work that you haven't seen yet, and an easier way to get in touch with me!
The new site is ready to go, and will be launched on 1/11/11.
Check out the countdown here: http://www.larrywestproductions.com
So I Won!As you may have seen in my last entry, someone stole my work.
It has been removed, and I am VERY glad to see this!
The long and short of all of this? I LOVE it when people enjoy my work! I've had people make them into stickers, I've seen people use them on their profile pages... I'm always glad to see it, and that's why I put my art out there; so people can see it and ENJOY it!
When it comes to someone selling it, especially without my permission, then there's a problem.
So here's the lesson: Enjoy my stuff, but please be nice.
Someone Stole My Work!Back in 2007, I decided it would be cool to have a piece I had done earlier go out into the world and speak for people who were censored. The piece was called "Government Censorship: Protecting YOU From Reality". It was an obvious parody of the Parental Advisory sticker, and at first I wasn't happy with how it looked. It took a while for it to grow on me, and I decided to put it on my Zazzle account to try and sell a few posters, and an image of it was posted on my website.
After that, my image started to pop-up in a few places. I periodically would do searches and sometimes see it up. I would let the person using it know I was the person who originally posted it, and to please give me some attribution, and that was about it. Since it was going on so much, I decided to post it on my Devian
So I Do Commissions...Thought I'd let everyone know that, yes, I DO COMMISSIONS!
Rules are pretty simple: For illustration I get 50% up front and the rest when I'm done. Anything design-related tends to be the same deal, but I have to handle that on a case-by-case basis. I don't do trades since I can't eat off it, but I do appreciate the sentiment.
That said, feel free to post a reply about what you may want, and if you're serious about hiring me to do something, drop me a line!
I've got some downtime and it would be fun to knock out a few pieces for folks!
The DERE TypesExplained Tsuki Style.
These are all the dere's I know
If there are more, please tell me and I'll add on :3
Bakaderederived from baka, idiot and dere, lovey dovey
- A bakadere as the name implies is a stupid idiot in love, clumsy with the way they're in love, but super in love :3
Bodere: They lash out when embarrassed, and prefer fists over words.
Byoukidere: Usually very sweet and kind, but suffer from some disease (usually a fatal one.) They are often frail and weak in nature.
Dandere derived from silent, is simply a silent type
- Dandere is someone who doesn't talk, is shy and antisocial until the right person comes along, at that point they will talk and become more confidant.
- Daruderes are those who are nonchalant to those who they love, but they do express emotions, just usually show no interest in those who like them
Icon Contest [closed]
Hi. I'm running another contest.
I really need a new icon, an icon that I can probably use for a long time (for my YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuMhcz39FjIPeHgOEyChvcg?disable_polymer=true)
so!! why not hold a contest
-USE HIS NORMAL FORM, ignore the monster and past
-No pixel icons, it will ruin the quality on YouTube.
-You CAN animate it, but make sure that the first frame is the main frame, because most people won't be able to see the animation unless they see a notification of me pop up.
-You can do anything with it! Background can be anything, any color, I don't really mind.
-You can shade it, leave it flat, etc.
-Any form of art is allowed! Cell shaded, realistic, paper, lineless, ANYTHING!
-I'd prefer head shots (shoulder to head), but if you want to squeeze in something else, feel free!
-He can wear anything!!
-I don't really have a preference of how it should look. I'm happy with anything :>

Art Trades! (OPEN)
Since I finished most of my black-ink art trades already, I'm uploading a new journal for designs and red ink illustration, as promised in the poll, but because I'll be concentrating mostly on school now it'll take me much more time to finish the drawings!
I'll accept trades once I finish the drawings I'm currently working on, but I'll start drawing the new ones after my exams end! It will be open for a while!
