Random Favourites

I pick my favourites, not neccessarily based off talent or content but by impact, style, beauty, because it made me laugh or numerous other random reasons. Regardless of whether or not a peice reflects something I'm into or not, if it makes me doubletake, and want to see it again, then it deserves it.

Every year I have a table at the Calgary and Edmonton Expos where I do sell select portraits. This is the only place I sell. Nor do I take commissions, though I might break that rule if the request came from the celebrity portrayed or the company in ownership of the copyright.

I try to maintain a balance between wanting to share my love of these characters and respecting the original owner of the image, whether it is a company or the person who the likeness belongs to. Because of this, I keep my prices low, in exception of the original, and my print runs low.

Here's the thing, I love these characters. I love drawing them and challenging myself. I love the reactions to my art, because you guys get soooo excited. That being said, I want to be respectful. So as much as other artists tell me to raise my prices, I won't. Regardless of demand, the print runs do end relatively quickly. I'll also constantly post updates to the company/person on Twitter and Facebook. From saying I'm going to do it, straight through production, I want them to be able to say "hell no!" if they actually see the post and would rather I didn't.

I will NEVER make a killing off selling art based off someone else's concept. I earn enough to pay for product, and tables, and signage, and all that stuff and sometimes (if I'm lucky) a little bit more to justify the days of work I take off to be there.

If you are wondering, the thing I want to make a living off of is actually my writing. And, hopefully, I'll realize that dream soon enough. In the meantime, and probably beyond, I loves me some half-naked men.

All this being said, Matt Smith has told me I can keep abusing his image. ;) Other awesome celebrities who have been totally cool with it, and even encouraging include Dean Cain and J August Richards, two of the finest gentlemen I've had the privilege of meeting.

I've (finally) updated the gallery page of lostinfernal.com and added a series of wallpapers for an Allies and Enemies series. You'll have to await the book to find out which is which. Currently, the book is with a publisher as they decide if they're going to move forward with it. 

Wish  me luck, guys! (you'll give me a huge boost by liking any of my Lost Infernal social media pages Twitter Facebook)

I should know by the end of September if they want to know more. If they do proceed, YAY! If not, I"ll self publish while proceeding to bash my head against the doors of agents in hopes they'll invite me in. 
I've been moved since Jared Padalecki started speaking about his struggles with depression. Mental health is a hard subject to talk about. We're taught to suck it up, Princess, and move on. Society relies on people who don't have the tools to heal themselves, to somehow give those tools to their children. All the while, we're told if we can't overcome, if we are overwhelmed, we are less. We are crazy. We are weak. We are undeserving of respect.

Jared Padalecki's #alwayskeepfighting campaign has inspired me to talk publicly about something I've be talking about in small ways. 

I broke. 

I fell. 

And fighting had always been my problem.

EDIT: DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT use their forms and submit any information to them directly. There are rumours of this website doubling as a phishing scam and downloading malware after form submission. 

In addition to contacting the below, sign this petition to have them taken down. It's at 53,000 signatures as of this post. www.change.org/p/remove-wallpa…;

If you have any public images on the internet, the likelihood is that this company is offering to sell that image via a print.
I mean everything. I've found my my profile pictures, expo floor maps, people gardening images, vacation photos, pictures of kids.

Their search bar is ridiculous and only works a portion of the time, so keep hitting that search button until something shows up. It's all based off search terms. TONNES of DeviantArt artists are being ripped off, like their ENTIRE GALLERIES. 

It took me about 5 - 6 tries to get certain ones of mine to show up.

I've been in touch with the Registrar of the website (not the company, so they're actually worth talking to). I'm going to provide you with the email address for the website, the Registrar, and my ticket number. Spread this around and let's inundate these fuckers with so many take down requests they shut down the site!

___________________________________________________________

Contacted the website Registrar for Wallpart.com and they have been in contact with the website. They have removed the links I provided them with my art on it, and they've taken them down.
I've informed them that I will be searching for the rest of my art and will have all my artist friends contact them with links to their art for them to take down.
On that note, spread this shit around and let's inundate the fuckers with take down requests.
