Free Criterion movies all weekend!
You must watch them, you must and you must tell all your friends to watch them!
If you want to see, hear, taste the greatest things EVER!
Sorry, but it's just REALLY exciting (to me at least)
A good art helping exerciseYou know the old saying "Garbage in, Garbage Out", here's an idea I have to help your art or just your mind in general go here:
sign up an account (if you haven't already)
go through a list and every time you see a movie/show you've watched/like rate it and click "more like this" and go through that list and do the same.
Maybe you'll find a new thing to watch and get motivated and make some interesting art and maybe learn something, too!.
So excitedI'm going to a convention this weekend and I will be cosplaying as Pearl (from Steven Universe).
I'm on Qwerteehttp://www.qwertee.com/product/the-definition-of-funny
You'll be the coolest kid on your block with my new "Tip O'Neill in a dress" t-shirt!
Not dead...yetBeen busy with work, I'm also going to volunteer/cosplay at a local convention. Kind of have artist block/focusing on stuff off this site. Not much going on.
The new episode of Sailor Moon Crystalhttp://www.hulu.com/watch/682974
Watch, in case you haven't already
Some recent comedy goldIn honor of the recent death of Joan Rivers, I give you a little, this nugget of joy that happened not but a few minutes ago that would have made her proud...
(Comment on :IconKessieLou:'s Sailor Senshi "redesigns" (I know she hasn't seen the new series or re-dubbing because she still calls them by their "English" names, I have no problem with that, I still call them "The Scouts", sometimes!)
Me: Have you seen the new show!
:iconKessieLou::No, but I want to!
Me: You can watch it on Hulu, BTW I still hate you!
This song basically sums up my relationship with Kessie:
Just watched Jodorowsky's DuneI think you should watch it, too, you might like it.
I would seriously love to see an animated adaptation of what he wanted to do and make it totally faithful to Jodorowsky, Moebuis, Giger, and everyone else's drawings and notes. Maybe with characters who slightly resemble/sound like Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, and Salvador Dali as well. Plus, someone who can do music like Pink Floyd and Magma.
While we're at it maybe we do Terry Gilliam's Don Quxtioe, too!
Octopus Accessories - art thieveshttp://www.octopus-store.ro/
this is their store. They are Octopus Acessories
This is their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OctopusAccessories
They had my drawings printed and were selling necklaces with them. They also lied to me that they did not steal them and took them from from some deviant who supposedly stole them first.
They sent me this link to this deviant :iconxyqueen: but the drawings that belong to me were submitted 12 hours ago. So obviously this couldn't be true since Nijikon was over 12 hours ago, and they had them for sale since 3 days ago.
This girl is so shameless, she lied to my face! She made me feel bad about calling her out and "making a scene" in front of her booth. OMG! And i believed her, i could have had her kicked out of the convention on the spot! She made me apologize for making a scene in front of her booth So she stole my art, and i was the one who apologized.
THAT. IS. WRONG.
Wow, if thievery was a game, she would be the final boss

Do you/a friend Need Exposure for Adoptables? I've recently found people who have made these really nice adoptables, at least artistically I think they're really well done. And then it pains me to see when very few people bid on them, and this amazing creation can only sell for like, $5 or something.
Now I've never tried adoptables, and I'm not sure I completely understand how they work, but what I do know is that it seems artists who do them are really at the mercy of how much exposure they get. In that way, it's much like everything else; if you don't have the numbers, really great work goes unnoticed and sells for a handful of jelly beans.
So I'm going to do a journal that features Adoptables.
Do you have, or know someone who is selling *nice quality* adoptables but really needs exposure on them? Leave a thumbnail or link in this journal, and maybe I'll choose them for my feature. I can't showcase them all, but I'd certainly like to try and get a few out there.
The world gets harder for artists all the time

Group Switch Around Meme Results!The Results!
Apologies for the ridiculously late posting, but here are the results of our first group Switch Around Meme collaboration! We had 50+participants, 150+ individual artworks, and a whole bunch of fantastic final pieces, so make sure to take a look.
Thank you to all the participants, all our helper line-art and coloring artists, as well as the admins who helped me manage this event. This collaboration event was met with a great deal of enthusiasm, so we will likely have more (better-organized) collab events in the future.
These compilations were arbitrarily split up into sets of ten, just so that there wouldn't be one giant file:

Silver Soldering ToolsArtist's Toolbox
Silver soldering is one of many different types of soldering, and is a commonly used technique in jewelry-making. There are many different tools that can be used for silver soldering - I will go over the basic tools that I use in my soldering endeavors, but there are certainly a lot more than I will be able to cover in this article!
The first and most obvious "tool" in silver soldering is the solder itself. Silver solder is just that - it is silver alloys that are specifically created to melt at certain temperatures in order to be perfect for varying soldering jobs. The silver solder that I use comes in sheets & is cut into small chips in order to be used. There are different 'levels,' if you will, of solder - most commonly called Hard, Medium, Easy (and I sometimes use Extra Easy).
The difference between the 'levels' is the temperature at which they each melt. Hard solder melts at the hottest temperature, and Extra Easy at th
