Just doing a post to clear the near year old journal. I don't really use this site as much anymore.
No need to watch this space.
Bye bye LondonSo now, a year after I moved to London I'm back home in Norway. Currently staying at my parents place near Trondheim.
I never posted any more about London as promised in the previous post. In fact, I've mostly used dA to just check the messages.
In any case, it now looks like I'm heading towards webdesign rather than modelmaking as a career. I'm working on updating my website to reflect that. And I'm more likely to post on my own blog than here. Though I wonder if it's possible to have it synced somehow...
I've got a couple of live projects done. The first was my old Modelmaker course, where my tutors wanted a website to present the course. Then through a landlord of a friend of a friend I did a website for someone dealing with properties. And I currently got a job going for the company another friend of mine works for. In addition I'm working on a community project which I'm lagging behind badly.
I got allot to sort out from the move from London; all my stuff being moved and unpacked,
What happened?! I live in London!Right, so, this is the short story: I didn't move back home to Norway anyway, I ended up doing a pitstop in London. Finally got the internet in my new house. I have some new stuff hidden away that I'll upload eventually.
Now, please hang on for the long story.
Manana Manana!Yo party people! Just wanted to get rid of this old journal I had there. My London Show is next week and after that I'm pretty much done. Gonna post some new pictures when I come back and also upload a mini-site for my Final Major Project. I hope to get yet another activity rush here before I get bogged down with a job or something.
On a sidenote: It's summer people! Get outside and have fun!
El grande finale!Activity at last. It's been a while since I last posted something here now. the Arts Institute keep me busy. I completed my 6000 word research project. It feels so good to have that done now. Writing is horrible. Don't like it, don't think I ever will.
Now I am really excited as I am free to fully focus on my Final Major Project. I'm free to make whatever I want and I will be doing that until May. Then we will prepare for the London show in beginning of July. After that... well.... I dunno... I gotto find my self a way to make my living... ...but all in it's own time.
Don't abduct our Alien!How long can the dA admin (the new) ignore what's going on? All the questions the community have about the removal of jark? Perhaps there are legal issue involved, but surely they could say something. I've been idle for at least half a year or so. Mostly due to beeing busy with school and work. All though I had plans of catching up this summer. But for now, I'll delay my planned submissions until I've heard what's going on high up there at dA. I want to know what's happening at this site.
This is not the dA I joined.
Wonderful gadgetsFireworks got a very nifty keyboard for you all you powerusers out there. It got no physical keys, just a big pad that you can use to type, control the mousecursor or do gestures on.
It plugs into the USB port and can (on most systems) be used side by side with your existing keyboard and mouse of you aren't ready to get rid of it yet. Very portable as it can be folded up.
You can get it in QWERTY and DVORAK layout as well as a few international layouts.
The price is currently $339.00, but it's the ultimate keyboard of keyboards.
This item is defiantly going on my next item to get for my computer. A bit annoying that I invested in a Logitech Wireless Keyborad and Mouse last year when I bought my computer.
Back onlineGreetings all deviants!
We got a new modem for our house last weekend so we could connect it to the wireless network. I'm finally back online. However, I will go offline in a week or two while they reconnect us to our new internett line. 2Mbs.
Anyways. One of my many projects atm is that I have to compile a CV and a couple of sample pages for my portfolio. That means I have to dig up images from wha tI did last year. There's a slight problem where as I might have lost a few pictures when I was cleaning up my workspace on the server. In that case I have to take new images where it's still possible.
Anyways, the point is that I'll finally have something new to submit here. Haven't really done that for about a year.

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!
Regular Payments / ABs
Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy
Close To You - Lyrics - Sans VersionTHE FLOWERS OF THE NEW AND LAUGHTER OF THE PAST,
THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LIKE YOU, BEAUTY UNSURPASSED!
GONE WITH A WHISPER, YOU FALL ASLEEP LIKE DEATH,
BREAKING THROUGH THE EARTH, YOUR SMILE SHINES AGAIN!
MY EMPTY GRATITUDE, ANOTHER EMPTY THANK YOU,
I FINALLY LEARNED REGRET, FROM WORDS I'VE ALWAYS SAID.
NEVER MEANT TO SPEAK TO HURT, YET IT HURT TO PUT IN WORDS,
GOODBYE WHEREVER YOU ARE, GOODBYE UNBROKEN HEART.
IN TRUTH I WANT TO FEEL, THE TRUTH I WANT TO SEE,
I'M TRYING TO EMBRACE YOUR DRIFTING HEART AND SMILE!
WHENEVER I BEGIN TO FEEL THE BURNING TEARS OVERFLOWING FROM MY EYES,
I KEEP ON LOOKING FORWARD AT YOU, HOPING THAT YOUR LIGHT WILL NEVER PASS ME BY!
I WONDER WHAT THE STARS THAT SPARKLE IN YOUR EYES ARE HIDING FROM MY MIND,
HIDING FROM MY OPEN HEART AND FROM YOUR OPEN HEART!
TOGETHER, YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS BE ALIVE, CONNECTED, CLOSE TO YOU I'LL STAY!
AS LONG AS I CAN HOLD YOUR HAND AGAIN AND AGAIN, FOREVER, I WILL FIND MY WAY!
YOU MAY NEVER ANSWER BACK MY CALL BUT YOU SMILE AT ME WITH

Great book for learning about pixel artI read through this a while ago and have been meaning to plug it here since I've always found good pixel art guides hard to come by and this was super helpful to me!
This book is very thorough and goes from how pixel art was originally made for old games (which I've always wondered about and find super interesting) to basic pixel art concepts and on to more advanced subjects including animation! I learned some new stuff and it clarified other things I knew about but didn't really have a clear understanding of. It's also very visually oriented so there's a lot of clear examples of the concepts covered.
There's also a free preview available here if you want to check that out first -
