Progress so Far

First off, thank you guys so much, you are awesome as always! I'm still getting supportive, encouraging messages from the last update about life outside of FE. Thanks for sharing your struggle and success stories, how much FE means to you, and your kind words. Been spending the past month seriously looking into what it would take to for art to be a full-time job in my life. Again, I'm hesitant to share about my personal life, (especially finances,) but I'm not the only one who wants to make a living doing what they love - and I hope sharing my experience will help others working towards the same goal. -- The first thing Husband and I did,

Mysteries and Scandals-Our Gang

Mysteries and Scandals-Our Gang

Broadcast in the 1990s on the E! Entertainment Television channel.  The inspiration for the Get Along Gang concept.    Some people didn't care for host AJ Benza's unsentimental and occasional mocking narration but I thought he did well to present a respectful tone to the profiled stars' entertainment accomplishments without being too syrupy or condoning the behavior that led to the stars' personal and professional downfalls. The history and the dark side and tragic lives of some of the cast members from Hal Roach's "Our Gang"/"Little Rascals".  TV-PG for language and thematic material.

Three Strikes, I'm Out.

Three Strikes, I'm Out.

All had been going well.  I asked for two prints of "More Coffee," and got them.  One print now adorns Alexander's Cafe. Then I asked for two prints of "Ventriloquist," just to fill a frame with an old, yellowed artwork from my younger days.  Got those, too. But ... BUT ... I ask for two prints of my showpiece "Worse," and it's Oh Noes!  Error!  Wrong-o!  Problems! Okay, that's a hiccup.  Nothing to worry about, so I try a different piece. I ask for two prints of "Illness," and get another chorus of Oh Noes!  Error!  Wrong-o!  Problems! Sensing a pattern here.  So, I go with an original work featuring a nameless character modeled roughly

Debuts and freedom of expression

Debuts and freedom of expression

Another 15th of November, the debut anniversary of Space Jam and the first appearance of Lola Bunny.  Am I fixated on this character?  Perhaps.  Is that wrong?  Well, Warner Brothers Media hasn't issued a Cease And Desist Order, so it can't be all that wrong.  Many decry Lola Bunny as a cypher and a Mary Sue, that has no place among the Looney Tunes.  The revised version seen in The Looney Tunes Show is definitely much loonier, more in keeping with the origins of the franchise's stalwarts.  Nonetheless, I'm mindful that the debut of Lola in Space Jam had to be tempered, because the whole reason for this film in the first place was to wave the

I copyright nothing.

I copyright nothing.

Any characters I create or depict are Up For Grabs.  I don't bother copyrighting anything, and I have no intention of "squatting" on something just to be dickish. Of course, characters that are already copyrighted, such as Warner Brothers' Lola Bunny or Walt Disney's Zootopia or Nellie Kitchen's Furry Experience webcomic, are fan art.  And as fan art, it's good form to acknowledge the rightful creator somehow, either in the description or on the artwork itself.  I hope I've done that consistently; if not, let me know, and I'll make it right.  Fair's fair, y'know. However, for any of the bunny / kitty / whatever characters I've created, they

Hey John - who is Jeff Carter? You mentioned him on my page about having a lot of Lola mechandise
Way back in 1997, Jeff Carter was this fellow that put up "Jeff Carter's Lola Bunny Page" that was mostly GIFs and one-by-one displays of Lola Bunny merch.  He had amassed quite a bit, and much of it was for sale.  The site rarely updated, though, and was pretty much stagnant by 2000 or so.  It's gone now, so I can only speculate why.

1) He sold all or most of his wares, so the site wasn't needed any more.  He may have moved on to other venues, such as My Little Pony, but he's keeping his name off of them.  I never got the impression he was a collector per se, more like a retailer, bagging the early wares cheaply, then reselling them at significant markup.  The nostalgia market never seems to run out of money.

2) He's still got a goodly stash, but sells only duplicates, leaving a museum of memorabilia in effect.  Rather than deal with the many excited weirdos online, Jeff keeps his "toys" by invite only, likely using a frontman to vet those that declare interest.  I haven't heard about anyone taking Space Jam swag on tour, like on Antiques Roadshow.

3) Jeff and his wife got older, raised kids, and outgrew their Space Jam days.  Priorities change, y'know?

Do you have a reference drawing of your fursona? The green bunny there on your icon?
Thanks, Valiant. Though, at my age, 2/3 of my life is over. I'm now marching toward my grave. *Hope I get a heated coffin ...*
