On My Way BackHi everyone,I would like to apologise for my sudden and prolonged absence from DA. Things just got on top of me last year. After losing my Dad. Since the there have been several bouts of flu and a sudden house move. It has been a really draining time, and I just needed time out.But now the move is over and the unpacking has begun, I wanted to let you all know I am well and on an even keel now. I will be back fully after Easter, by then the most of the boxes should be unpacked.I hope everyone is doing ok, I have missed you all.RegardsAnthony

Some quick recognition tipsI remember it can be quite tough to gain recognition on DeviantArt when you first start out. It's a massive website with so many features and ways to interact! When I started out, I was lucky to have a friend of mine giving me a little shoutout in their journal, which gained me my first couple of watchers. I'll do the same in this journal for some new Deviants I found that have really cool galleries, and I thought of giving a couple of tips as well on gaining recognition:~ TIPS ~Loads of interaction! DeviantArt is considered a social media website as well as an art site, and offers many more tools for interaction, feedback, and commenting than Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr ever will! Use it wisely If you want to receive comments, and have people view your art, you have to put some effort in yourself as well. Comment on other people's artwork, +fav it, +watch those you really like, keep communicating. Try interacting with other new ar
Drugs And Mental Disorders (Small Rant)The thing I REALLY hate about people these days is how they still see drugs and mental disorders as some joke or punchline.It's so fucking disrespectful to people who had parents who did drugs or had some sort of mental disorder and they don't even realize how goddamn serious these things are.My dad used to drink alcohol and he chucked me across my living room floor when I was only around 8-9 years old.My mom still smokes cigarettes. My dad has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Attention Defict Hyperactivity Disorder.My mom has Depression and Anxiety and when she doesn't take her anti-depressants, she says that she would be sad all the fucking time.I got my ADHD and OCD genetics from my dad and it really sucks. Why are people still like this, I don't fucking understand.It fills my entire body with rage and hate it just brings me back to when my dad would yell at me and my 2 older sisters and even slap us across the face just to tell us how much of a bratty attitude we would have.
16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they
Hello Friends New and Old!Hey gang! This entry's been a long time coming and I've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's just jump in!First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow. NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy.

I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into to

YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
