New work is here.
Well actually it's right over there.
prideI'm very proud of myself right now. I'm also artistically excited. College is amazing! Chemistry is satan. And you'll get to see my awesome new work soon...
2There are only TWO MORE DAYS UNTIL HARRY POTTER SIX OMFG WOW.
Plus there is only one month until college. I can't wait. Life rawks.
Back again, for a time.The truth is that I haven't talked to anybody in a while; I've been pretty silent. Hopefully that is about to change. I've started painting darned actively and I dream about a life where something like this is constant.
I've got some more stuff in production and more ideas, and I have three months of classes left to get me into the habit of doing art on my own. So far it's been assignments and once and a while something personal, and I want to transition to totally personal work. We'll see how that goes.
School sucks, except for art class, and that's about it for now. Have a nice day.
Scannin mah picsOk, so I really want to put my recent work on DA but I can't find a way to get the images into my 'puter. I've been working larger than 8.5"x11", so scanning my work has become an artwork in itself .
Anyway, I went out to Kinko's today and they have an oversize scanner, but it's only black and white and I have to roll my images through it. It's not flatbed. So not only would I have to take my sketches out of my sketchbook but there is no way to scan my paintings! I'm starting to see a few serious disadvantages to working on streched canvas.
So just to hype things up a bit: I have two GYNORMOUSLY good paintings to show, but they can't find their way onto the site yet. This is very painful for me. TTYL.
Higgledy JibeHave you ever cleaned both ears with the same side of a q-tip and then worried about cross-pollenation?
Great List of Things Which Come Highly RecommendedI saw "The Incredibles" today and it's Pixar's best yet. It almost surpasses description. If Pixar ever fails to be totally original, completely funny or surprising in any way, it will truly be a sad day. The Incredibles is entertainment, congealed into its most pure and concentrate form.

Oh! So Sad and Angsty.I remember going to see some movie a long time ago, and I saw a preview for some travesty called "28 Days Later."
I was not impressed.
Not only did the preview seem to jump genres faster than an arcade goth playing Dance Dance Revolution but it seemed to be your run-of-the-mill horror-movie cannon-fodder special. The testemonial tv commercials were running rampant and were annoying, but when the movie came out one of my good friends said that it was not very scary at all.
"Well screw that then," I said, and proceeded to not go and see the movie.
Well, I was wrong. I saw "28 Days Later" tonight at a friend's house and it was one of the most refreshing sci-fi movies I've seen in a while.
I think the problem is that many movie preview directors need to be dragged out into the street and shot; many movies which are not bad movies (or, conversely, are not good movies) are misrepresented by their previews and attract exactly the wrong audience. "28 Day
Arguing on the InternetI'm kind of frustrated about my job.
A good friend of mine is very close to getting fired, and I think that my boss is being illogical about the entire scenario.
My friend (who will be referred to as Shelly) has been unable to work very much for the past few months. She participates in a lot of school activites and she has been very busy. Before this period of relative inactivity started, she informed my boss about it and my boss was ok with it.
Right now, Shelly is ready to come back to work. Her one major conflict has now ended and she has one week left of activities before she can return to a regular working schedule. However, she has to work at the election on Tuesday. When she gave our boss early warning, the boss threatened to fire her.
It doesn't make any sense! Why would my boss wait patiently for three months only to fire Shelly a week before she was able to work again?! It's a
Leaving DeviantArtI've been a member of DeviantArt for a very very long time. It says 6 years but I've definitely been on here lurking for over 10! As you may (or may not) have noticed, I'm no longer active here. Mainly because I feel the interface and community spirit has declined, but also because I feel like I've moved on from the platform. I will still post pictures from time to time (and I won't delete any of my work!) but please do not make any effort to contact me over here. You can follow/contact me through any of the sites below. I hope to see you there!
Pillowing Pile Thrift Store (New Stock Alert!)Welcome to the Pillowing Pile Thrift Store!
Here is a place where pillowings and lintlings come to rest, recover, and eventually go out and find new homes for themselves. For whatever reasons their old homes didn't quite work out, but that doesn't mean they're giving up. They're eager to meet you and can't wait to explore your home!
If you would like to purchase one of the adopts here with your cc, please comment below.
A mod will then comment back to confirm and collect the pillowing or lintlings things (extra art if it has any) for you and send you both on your way by note.

~Interview with Doll Schmidt~Hallo! Today we're here with Doll Schmidt, say hai Doll!
Doll: *smiles* Hello!
Alright, I'll be asking you some questions about yourself, and I want you to answer them truthfully, ready Mrs. Schmidt?
Of course, sweetie!
Okie, here we go.
How old are you?
When's your birthday?
Is your name really Doll?
It's only my nickname. My real name is Maria, but I prefer to be called Doll.
Aww! Maria is such a pretty name!

What's your favorite color?
I love pastel colors, and orange is my favorite.
Oh! Something other than the popular choices!
What's your least favorite?
Um, I honestly like all the colors, but I would have to say black and white... They're very bland.

Same here, sweetie! *nods*

I'd have to say sandwiches.
What's your least favorite?
I'm not a big fan of seafood.

announcementsMarch 11th, 2018 - season confusion

Fall is NOT over. New members joined IC on the 15th of Fall. The next festival is on the 19th.
The calendar has been updated with new character birthdays. If you just joined the group and your character's birthday is on the 15th or later, you can do the birthday quest.
March 7th, 2018 - gold system
If you are waiting for an app review, rest assured, it is coming! I am trying to be detailed so it takes a while for me to write. Please refrain from sending notes/additional comments.
To current members, as you might have noticed, the gold journal is marked as outdated. I am planning to rebalance the gold system. It would be to your advantage to wait before submitting drawings for gold until the update is released (you are free to submit to the gallery, but I'd advise you to stall adding it on the site).
