I suck at updating --- Part 10I can't believe it's 2013 --- and I'm still chugging away at a ton of projects in the book world and it's a huge ordeal, so i hope to get some updates here for you soon, but lots of it is under nondisclosure status so i can only post snippets of half of what's going on.
So entertain yourself with this!
WONDERBOOK, the recent present, and how I suckIt has been a crazy whirlwind of a year.
Ever since I started working with Jeff and Ann VanderMeer and all the crazy weasels they drag along with them in this murky starlit bog of a wonderland I have been busy drawing covers for over 30 books or projects, with many more in the process happening -- and I haven't updated on here once since I got my my tip wet, so to speak.
So let me make it up to those few of you who enjoy my rare interactions: I'm going to be posting everything I've done in the last year, in some form of order, very soon. I'm proud of everything I've done, and even prouder that my first cover to cover work with Jeff is going to be released next year in the summer, and like the creature on the cover, it is a leviathan called WONDERBOOK and it will rock your mind. http://www.jeffvandermeer.com/2012/06/18/wonderbook-the-illustrated-guide-to-creating-imaginative-fiction/
I also did the covers for 'The Blood Poetry' by Leland Pitts-Gonzalez http://www.thebloodpoet
First draft on the Jeff VanderMeer LE book...Well, after wasting way too much time on family of all things, I finally sat down and cranked out the first version of the Jeff VanderMeer limited edition of his nonfiction collection, 'Monstrous Creatures' from Raw Dog press.
I had been rolling what I wanted to do for weeks in my head, but it wasn't till recently that it all came together, and even then the final piece is very different from what I thought I'd end up with.
I'll upload some pics of it when I get the go ahead on any edits, since it's always likely that some changes might be needed, though I was given an amazing amount of freedom on this.
But, editing just gets your brain cranking around problems, so it's all good.
I'm really stoked with what I have so far though, I worked everything in as a complement to the art as a whole, including the logos and back text and I think it's going to look awesome on the shelf and on the coffee table.
I will be uploading the artwork I did especially for the back inna minute.
So what do you do when one of your favorite...So what do you do when one of your favorite writers emails you to say he likes your work and would maybe like to use it?
You pop open that bottle of '64 and slip into something comfortable.
Shit just got real.
hi. i'm alive.i've just been dealing with some really bad depression (like normal), and i had a couple of people i liked use me for crap (like normal), and a girl i really liked, and do just about everything to help her, basically just said 'fuck you' with her complete and utter disregard for our friendship. no it's nobody on DA.
it hasn't been the best two months really.
but i made a bunch of art, and i'll be posting that soon. so if you were wondering, there you are...
and i still have a bunch of my b-day posters for sale of you want one: 10 bucks + s/h, perfect for people who like evil shit or lambs with vaginas in their faces...
When you know that everything is going terrible...You only get calls from people needing advice, needing help, wanting you to fix things, be there for them, help them with their issues...
Honestly the amount of 'friends' I have that actually call me or contact me that want to just do something with me, as opposed to have me fix something they can't, or can't afford is really daunting.
31 years of being used horribly... well, fuck that.

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.

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
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

Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!
