My News Articles

My News Features focus primarily on showcasing the works of various artists around deviantART. You'll find an eclectic blend of old and new, high-end and beginner art. Here are my most recent articles:



You can find a full listing of my articles, past and present, here:


About Faves/Watches & A Small Request

If you feature me or my art in a journal or News article, please comment and let me know. I appreciate the support and would love to drop by and post a personal "thank you" for the feature.

In the past, I really loved to visit the pages of my visitors and thank them for faving my work and/or for devWatching me. Unfortunately, I now receive so many faves and watches a day that if I thanked for all of them, I would never have time to create new art. So, if you have favorited one of my pieces, or added me to your Watch list, please know I am very grateful and accept my sincerest thanks.

Periodically, I will feature an artwork that recently caught my eye. It may be high art or simple doodles, but it's something that moved me enough to want to share. To see past Daily features, check out this folder

Digging Out

I was going to write another long journal talking about issues in my life, but no one needs to read that. However, there are a few things I want to note...

I mentioned it in passing, but Jim's dad has terminal cancer. It's a very aggressive form and the prognosis is not good. This coming less than a year after my mom passed. It's been rough, and needless to say, things are quite hectic in these parts. So continue to keep that in mind when commenting, noting, and all of that. I will get to things, but turn-around time is not the best. :paranoid:

That said, over the last couple of months I have made steady progress "digging out" of a very deep backlog. While I have a long way to go, I'm encouraged by my progress and plan to keep going. In fact, with such craziness in my life, it's a bit of a sanity-saver to come to dA and focus on "fluff" for a while. My plan is to attack my message center next. I am nuking all deviations, journals and polls, so if there was something you wanted me to see, please comment or note me. My main goal is to get the comments and notes, and then hopefully on to posting a few pixel pieces.

I will be participating on NaNoEmo. I'm not sure if I can do 30-in-30, but I'm going to try. I plan to do a mix of general-use and personal emoticons. Should be interesting. Anyhow, for more details on the event, be sure to watch the group.


Over on my mirz-alt account, I'm running a small comment contest for my RelativityComic group. The series will be 3 years old, and we wanted to do a little something to celebrate. I also have a special article scheduled to post for the occasion, too. So, if you're interested, head on over.

Our First Ever Comment Contest:happybounce: As many of you know, around August-October, we host a yearly Relativity art contest. We must delay the contest this year due to personal issues and other commitments that we want to get through. But, we didn't just want to let our anniversary pass without doing something.
We are going to have a comment contest! The nice thing about this is that EVERYONE can enter, even if you are not good at art or writing. The only thing you need to do is leave comments. There will be two categories: ART and STORIES. Each category will have slightly different rules, so pay attention. You MAY enter both categories. The idea is to leave comments on Relativity artwork and/or stories. Everyone who qualifies will be entered into a drawing to win points prizes. We also have a special grand-prize up for grabs.
:bulletorange: RULES
All comments must be NEW. You cannot enter with old comments. They must have been posted on or after October 24, 2014 to qualify.

That's it. "Keep Going" is our family motto, and that's more or less what I'm doing. I did re-open my page and gave it a bit of an autumn flavor, so take a peek if you like.

As always, thank you for your love and support. Seriously, not sure how I would get on with it.

2014 VP NaNoEmo Round-Up

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 30, 2014, 3:27 AM
Back in August, we ran VP NaNoEmo. This is a special event that focuses on "Visual Purpose" emoticons, which are essentially emoticons that are created to be admired as art, not with the purpose of use in chats, etc. While the turn-out was not stellar, given the lull in the emoticon community over the last year or two, the number of emotes created for the event was impressive, nonetheless.

As we very quickly approach the launch of NaNoEmo (and yes, Synfull and I plan to co-host it again this year), I thought it was about time that I did the re-cap of the Visual Purpose event. I would like to thank everyone who participated. Whether you made one emote, or manage to make all four, we thank you for taking part.

Again, a hearty thank-you to everyone that participated. We hope to be back on schedule for the next "visual-purpose" event, come July. :heart:
