Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

So this is what I’ve been working on for the past two weeks. I needed a new profile picture on FB, so I decided to paint one. Before I began, I knew I wanted to do something different, and began researching other artists to draw inspiration. I was inspired by good ol’ Caravaggio.
At around the same time, I watched the latest Art Assignment video, which delightfully correlated with my intentions. Even though I had already started (as you can see in the video), I recorded myself painting, added a bit of art history, and boom-shaka-laka-boom: new portrait and video of my process.
For those who want to know, chrysanthemums are my birth month flower (November), and the insect in the portrait is a hummingbird moth.
For those who want to know more, symbolism time! White chrysanthemums symbolize compassion, joy, and a long life. Yellow chrysanthemums symbolize something else. Hummingbird moths don’t necessarily symbolize anything, but hummingbirds symbolize vitality, playfulness, and flexibility, while moths symbolize intuition and transformation. I’d like to think a hummingbird moth is a symbolism mash up of the two critters.
Anyway, this took about five or six hours in Photoshop. Thanks for looking!

#5 out of 100. Sherlock Holmes from BBC’s Sherlock. Ah, yeah. Purple shirt. Had to do it. An hour is barely enough time to give it justice (I, uh, spent a bit too much time on the face before I check and saw I had like twenty minutes left to do the rest of the body. :\ ), but I did my best!

First two paintings for Fallenzephyrart’s 100 Color Palette Challenge! Yow, that’s a mouthful.

Anyway, these lovely ladies are Ichigo and Momoko from Kamikaze Girls, one of my favorite movies. And one of these days, I’m going to get my hands on the book, which I discovered recently.

And if there’s a book, I’m totally going to read it no matter what. Ahem, moving on.

Both these paintings were done in an hour. An hOUR. WHEEZE. I thought I’d challenge myself, and limit myself to an hour. Because if I didn’t, I spend hours on one painting, trying to perfect it, and then get irritated it didn’t look perfect and then never post it. Ever.

So, one hour. Two down, ninety-eight to go.
