here is a few of my favorites from around DA
Adjusting my DA participationI have moved most of my images for sale to www.SaatchiArt.com/RBCD While I enjoy DA very much and have participated, I have not had a return on investment. I will stay on for the other artists I have come to appreciate here, the ability to print magnets, etc. I would also like to keep engaged with this site in case they ever come up with a formula to reimburse artists. One idea that I find compelling is to charge for likes. For a while I have been paying artist with DA bucks each time I liked one of their images. I think this should be part of the process when a person clicks on likes an image then a screen pops up asking what the collector wishes to donate to the artist, or accesses a minimum charge. People who collect images can then contribute to the artist's effort. Collectors could even earn a new type of badge... I recommend that DA do something like this and make the DA Bucks conve
December Month of DollsHello, well this doll thing is running full tilt. I have work available at D&H in LA, UU Art Guild in San Diego, Downtown San Diego Bar Basic Pop-Up show hosted by Thumbprint Gallery, and a fun raiser of sorts for Art on 30th in San Diego. Contact me if you would like to go to any of these places and chat. Here is some of the recent work:

Stepping Forward!I have the studio, I have the time, you will get the art!
I noticed other people are already working...
Sooo, whats happening with ChauDavisAlright, ya know I have stopped selling paint and am onto the art kick full time. Part of this is fixing up the house/studio and making it livable in winter and summer so that Maria, I and Lora can all live and work year round. Almost there! In a little bit Maria and I will be taking our big vacation and seeing wonderful things up North. I had hoped to slip one more show in but ran into a glitch so had to back out (it was graceful with no damage done on either side). I have developed deep affection for Thumbprint and hope to work with them when I get back. I would like to have regular drawing/photo sessions at my house. Working with having an artist (who likes their privacy) become a sort of guest artist at the house. Should have more work in August and if you want to visit there is always Taco and Tequila Tuesdays... Here are some of my current Fave's by other artists on DA...
A few pictures from Jazz Jam at Panama 66This is happening every Wed night at Panama 66 in Balboa Park, San Diego. These artists are all painting the musicians jamming on stage (occasionally pulling other musicians out of the crowd). Here is the Facebook link to the event Carlos Castellanos Wed Night Jam Session at Panama 66. Brian Meyer is promoting the visual art side...

UU Art Guild Poems and suchWell finally finished these up... Will be talking about them the second Tuesday of February at First Unitarian, UU Art Guild!
Dragon Ball Z Tribute Show (Cosplay Encouraged)Thumbprint Gallery is hosting a Dragonball Z art event at Bar Basic in San Diego 1/26/2016, I created 3 little acrylics taken from the opening sequence of season 1. Drop by, here are some of the details:
Here are few others I found on DA:
That was interesting...I was able to show it all in front of the T bar in Hillcrest, still processing the experience. Stayed to 10:30, True stayed longer, he is a champion. I think that bargain bins are called for. I could do an extension of the trash series and have the 99 cent bin. A more compelling interactive piece is needed. Protection from the evening damp would be good. Art cards need to be framed or available for swapping. Couple of cool interactions, one couple came by twice... One did a quick scan and told the other 'you are not interested in any of this.' The other starts looking immediately and I tell her 'you can any one piece free. She took a good one I had created for the postcard show. Very satisfying for both of us. Another person apologized extensively for bargaining me down to 20.00 dollars for a piece she loved, felt she was being insulting...didn't buy the piece. I tried to console her. Try again next Thursday, see what ha

Make deviantArt a fucking better place!!! Part 1Okay, guys,
I think I need to be hard. I am more than 9 years an deviant here on dA. This is good for me to compare the past and now. And maybe have a clue how dA will be in the future.
I have the feeling dA is getting more and more heartless. And I am not the only one. I set up a little poll, and the few who took part gave me this:
The first years I was here, everything here was great! Great artists, nice people who you could talk to (and who talked with you, TOO!), a lot of fun with the community, reaction on my work, reactions on what I wrote for you, feedback like comments and faves and so on. But this has changed extremly. I feel lonely here most of the time. I have no Fun being part of this community anymore. (And I think may have the same opinion, as many left the community)
But what can we do?
This is why I will write some journals, all about this topic. I will tell you my point of few, and

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:
1. A detailed literary analysis and trope driven deconstruction of H
