ROBIN WILLIAMS TRIBUTE
The career span of Robin Williams is such interwoven in our culture with so many iconic characters that his loss effected so many people’s reflection of their childhood. Whether we’re talking the bangarang Peter Pan hugging your original character or yourself or we’re talking a daring adventure with Mork. Perhaps just a scene of characters discussing depression or suicide. This week we look at closure. We look at saying goodbye. We make it personal. $10 off.
One day I staggered on to DeviantArt with a wandering eye and a room to decorate. I was here for prints, commissions and whatnots. While the community is more than helpful, I was left a bit in the cold about how there wasn’t much interaction in the scenes I was trying to create with fellow artists. I was also limited by budget. Every character I added doubled - tripled - the cost. That’s why when I hung up my own commission sign years ago, I put into policy that three characters were included. 3 characters per piece. I wanted scenes possible because while it was what I was looking to buy, it was also what I wanted to build and now I have quite the wondrous portfolio of scene after scene. None of which would have been possible by sticking to the one character code.
3 characters included in every artwork.
$5 for each additional character.

MCFLY YOU BOJO
One of the great aspects of the Back to the Future trilogy is that it addressed the dual nature of dreaming technology. It not only presents retro gadgets of Tomorrowland but also displays the dystopian possibilities of the wrong choices. You go from having this Hill Valley with cars running off pollution to a Hill Valley featuring Tannen's toxic waste reclamation plants. It’s 2015 next year. Let’s make the future strange. Any scene that takes place in a scene within either a utopian (think the Jetsons) or dystopian (think cyberpunk) setting automatically gets this deal.
Let’s make something together. Paige is featured on my return to Commissions graphic. She’s a blank slate. She’s quite available for any adventure and whatever nature they take. The previous sword swinging ginger that was my commission’s graphic was actually a negative reminder. It was a character that I had designed but was never paid. Always recycle, friends, but now is the time for something new. I want to do that with you. Whether it’s building a background or simply putting her in jeopardy, each of these acts will be adding to the mystic of Paige. I haven’t seen anything like that done or, rather, I haven’t seen it lately and I think it would also allow us all to build a neat relationship to how we each add to her.
Disney didn’t endanger any of the Marvel licenses. The epic nature of Guardians has proven that. There was such a vulnerable current that went through all the comic fans when the Mouse took over the House. Well, you can all be at ease finally because it’s been exposed. They care. Even after Iron Man, even after the Avengers, there still was that atmosphere like these characters were in risk. You can all relax now. Make one of the three characters one from Marvel’s catalog and you get instant savings.
SHRED AVANT GARDE
There’s something about battle damage. Sometimes it’s self inflicted. Sometimes it’s from the heat of the conflict. That big reveal of what’s underneath. I’m not sure if I would say that it’s completely sensual as it is curiosity. As a child, my heroes were always bleeding or showing their skin under their costumes. It represented how treacherous their situations were. The actual wearing away of the individual until all that’s left is them until the end. Just a hint of that perilous activity makes any captured moment that much more powerful.
Full Body Black & White with Color Accent
FOUR PANELS included per page

There are so many cool programs where you can edit photos now. All of those programs also have the ability to color items. Last I checked, there were also some fabulous various of Photoshop up on the cloud. One of my favorite was PaintSumo. My daughter plays the My Muppet Show app on her mother’s phone. Whenever there isn’t an internet connection, the game crashes and stops functioning. I see that as what will happen to all Adobe software soon. Once we’re all happy paying a monthly subscription for a program we can never possess, we’ll have to deal with the fact that when the net goes – so does the tools. I find that a bit scary and what’s more scary than death? The Death of Wolverine is coming. To personally commemorate it, I’ve done up these lines. I want to see what all of you can do with them. I experiment with color every time I begin. None of my Transolar Galactica Calendar pieces share the same color palette. I bounce back and forth with low saturation to a vivid spectrum. I want you to have fun because I did scribbling it.
