A man just called me today.  He bought my stolen laptop from a flea market.  When he found out it was stolen, he asked his three year old daughter what to do.  

Sounds like he's mailing it back to me.

Wow.  I never expected to see that again.

So I randomly happened upon a pile of Deviants down at Westlake.  Sheer madness... scrabble computer game in hand, I hung around for a bit, but I can only handle random unorganized chaos for so long, and I had to be elsewherez anyways.  Entertaining none the less.

By the way, I'm back from New Orleans, and it was something to see.  I'll have to post, draw, or do something wild with all that, we'll see.

For now, I'm just gonna sip some wine and eat some chocolate.

PS: Some chump stole my laptop and camera during my trip down to Louisiana, so if you know someone who found a powerbook laptop, with canon powershot s110 camera in a kexp.org back... kick'em where it hurts and mail it to me pronto.  That was my faulkin' life damnit.

Madness

Holy hot sauce, what am I doing??

I just agreed to, and must now verify that, I am going to hop in an SUV with a complete stranger and drive down to Louisiana, or there abouts.  Playing the part of Father Christmas delivering some supplies a local church gathered.

Madness.

Anyways, anyone else in the general area?  Once we get there, we don't have a huge plan, this man is a retired law prof from the UW with all kinds of connections down there, so we'll be going wherever needed, for however long we're needed I suppose.

Anyways, we begin in Seattle, and head due South-East.  This should be quite... well I haven't a clue.

oh... and I think I should start posting some picture again, devart has become so odd.

Been working on learning ruby (www.ruby-lang.org) recently.  It's going pretty well.  Great little language.  I'm also workin' on finally building a personal site since I might start doing some web design, and who's going to trust you to do web design if you don't have your own site?    

Anyways, you don't care about all this blather ;)  I'm going to try and do more art too... then again I think I'm trying to do more of everything which is hard with a finite amount of time.  Oh well, just have to perfect the art of eating, sleeping, and drawing all at the same time.

enjoy the universe,

Body!

Wow, I really haven't been on devart in quite a while.  Well, it's the night before Halloween, what better time for ghosts to come back?  Anyways, my tablet seems to be dying, my devart account has lapsed, I seem to have let all this slide for a bit too long.  Time to start postin' again.  

So now I have to figure out if all my favorite artists are still about, and who has popped up recently,  and perhaps if anyone is still watchin' my acount ;)  Speakin' of that I guess I should renew my account, my message center looks like:
  ( 76D, 6H, 194M, 42C, 21J, 2P, 2N )
which is utterly senseless if you're not registered, there is no way I'm going to click on upwards of 300 links to figure out what's happened :)

So um, drop by and say hi.

Buy a damn (fine) print

Went to the Sasquatch music festival out at the Gorge last weekend, it was great.  Got to see some of my favorite bands like The Shins, and Postal Service.  What more could I ask for?  (A pony, and a Mini with a nice paint job)

I even have sold a couple prints.  If anyone who bought one could tell me if the quality is any good, that would be excellent ;)

Allright, back to life,

Print

Buy a damn print

Woohoo!  I sold one print.
I have now made 13 cents off of deviant art.

The riches are pouring in.  I'll probably make some more of my pictures available, but I've had some rejected by DevArt for nebulous reasons (they didn't look like the original... yet they were the same damn image with about 10 pixels stripped off the top and bottom to conform to the size ratio requirements).

Oh and I'm making some slow progress on my painting program.  I'll let folks know when it's come on a little more.  Later I might put out some requests for some folks to test, or to see if anyone wants to help write some wonderful java code ;)

Coffee Shops

Buy a damn print

Damnit!
My favorite coffee shop in town just changed management.  The old guy kicked ass, so did most of the folks working there.  You could get the cheapest mocha in Seattle there, and it was the best on the Ave.

Bah, new management means they jacked the price up 50 cents and use swiss miss or some powdered chocolate instead of some good dark chocolate sludge.

That might not sound so bad, but I drink about a mocha a day.  This will certainly help me quit that habbit.  Between that and Zoka (another coffee shop not too far away) raising it's prices, it's getting harder to find decent coffee at independant stores.

So... I have made some progress with my painting program!

Hoorah.  Tablet support is the big thing for me, and getting that in a java program ain't easy, but it's working moderately well now.  So this is starting to look feasible :)  
Fun!

How did I become a senior member?  
Am I that old?  
Do I get discounts at Denny's now?

Odd.

I'm going to try and work a little more on my graphics program this weekend, maybe I'll have some screenshots up for all y'all.

Dear Deviant Scum,
Please purchase prints from me damnit.  Where are the millions I was promised, what about the record deal, the book signings, the water skiing?

Please purchase prints immediately, and advise me on what to add to the print gallery.  I can't add everything because it takes some effort to make the pictures fit the requirements.

  .netghost ;)
Hey all. I just got a prints account... so here's the big question...

How the hell do I submit things to be prints?  I have a barrel full of snappy lil pics and now I want to start stealing all your money, but I have no idea how to submit things to be prints...

Clueless? Hell yeah.

So you probably won't see much art for a little while.  I'm working making a painting program in Java.  Webstart ready and all.  It should be pretty slick whenever I get to a slick point anyways.

Oh and I am making it, so rest assured it'll be pretty cool, because I really wouldn't settle for anything less ;) Ahh!  Good idea ahead (I blather on): Let me know what you would really like to see in a painting/image editing program.  This is just for fun, but I might as well make something wonderful.

ps: Postal Service is so ludicrously electrosappy, I love it!
--Question on Styles--

I figured I had to bold that to get your attention.

Now.  Who has the most splendid style on the net?  I'm looking for links to cool inspirational styles that I can ruthlessly plunder and canabalise.

Thank you,

I just overheard someone at my favorite coffee shop today, try and argue that art schools shouldn't teach non art related things.  I understand if people don't want to go to the effort to learn subjects like math, but it's important.

Art is a medium, and without a broad understanding of other fields, you're limited to making art about art at the least.  I think that drawing from other fields is what makes art interesting...

Take math for instance, fractals obviously draw from math.  Architecture, is essentially the geometry of buildings (look at gothic architecture, all those circles and arches can be drawn with intersecting archs of a compass).

I think that the most interesting art comes from people who have a broad view of the world, and can incorporate interesting elements from many fields into their art.

Anyways, that's just the perspective of a programmer who doodles on occasion.  

Thoughts?

I apparently just bought a new 12" PowerBook since I got hired for a new job.  I am now a salary man.
Scary.

I think I should draw some more pictures perhaps?
