Syd Mead 1933 - 2019

Syd Mead 1933 - 2019

Syd Mead went from designing cars and industrial products to designing worlds.  And while he was already well known for the former, it will be the latter than many will remember him for. Mead, who passed away on December 30, had lent his distinctive look to films such as ALIENS, TRON, SHORT CIRCUIT, and others.  Starting with STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE (1979), Mead would go on to re-define the look of SF films with BLADE RUNNER (1982), the classic film that has inspired numerous artists and authors over the years.  He even came back for the sequel, BLADE RUNNER 2049 (2017), with his designs for a future Las Vegas. For the film BLADE RUNN

Getting comfortable in my own skin....

I haven't put up a journal entry in quite a while--more like since last year--so it's time for a update. I left 2018 in a state that could only be called, well, being content.  I was just glad to be alive, to have some money in the bank (courtesy of a seasonal job), and to see my niece turn one year older and also realize just how much she's grown, and that my family and friends for the most part were still here. Yet the biggest change I saw was in myself.  I'll explain that one. For many years I pretty much hated myself.  Many didn't see it at all; only a couple of friends and close family members could tell that there was a lot of self-h

Harlan Ellison 1934-2018

Harlan Ellison 1934-2018

Harlan Ellison once said that the universe didn't care about us.  It was, in his words, "too busy creating the Coal Sack". I respectfully disagree.  I'd say that the universe cared about us because Ellison was here for 84 years.  A brief time, yes, but enough for him to make one hell of an impact. Ellison, who died on June 27, was a true force of nature.  "Titan" seems too limiting a word to a man who wrote novels, screenplays, comics, essays and short stories (for which he was known) and won numerous awards.  Stories such as "I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream", "Repent, Harlequin!  Said The Tick-Tock Man", and "The Cheese Stands Alone"--a

I apologize for the constant comments, but I just wanted to let you know that Psygirl's real name (once known as Tamara Daquilla) has been changed. You'll see here.

How's it going? It's been a while since I last heard from you.
Hey there! I'm doing all right--like everyone else--or mostly everyone else--I've been staying at home and going out only when absolutely necessary (like grocery shopping or picking up meds).  I sort of shut down doing any art-related stuff for some time while I was dealing with that and some personal issues, but I've gotten over those humps.

Still haven't forgotten your requests, but I've been trying to find some paying work during this time.  I'm also trying not to binge-watch too much on NetFlix and Amazon, so...

Hope you are doing okay yourself, especially with what's going on.
Furthermore, did you get my message regarding the fact that Shunichi Kobayashi (aka Vinald) will have long black hair? The reason he'll have long hair is for fanservice.
I'm doing fine. Also, will you be staying on DA despite Eclipse becoming mandatory on the 20th of this month?

Regarding the upcoming pic of Psygirl, would it be possible if she has purple glowing markings on her upper back and arms? They will be in the shape of an iris (the flower). The idea is more or less inspired by this.
