Legal Pinch on the CheekThe things I learned this week
you can not have "inspired by LOTRS" in an item you are selling on Etsy title, even if it is NOT a direct copy of anything in the movies, or Warner Brothers will send you a little legal letter. Can't have LOTRS in keywords either. Or hobbit. no idea on elf. Guess I'm just that good, huh?
Help with Resin! Color tint and type, please help!So I'm sure the whole internet by now has seen this, but this guy wonderful glowy shelve has inspired me to do something similar for a picture frame for a Hellboy poster I have. Now, I am a fairly experienced woodworking, I work in a furniture shop, so building the frame doesn't intimidate me at all. But I know NOTHING about the filler resin. I have some really knotty gnarly cedar wood I'd love to use, and have the cracks and knot hole all filled in with red resin. The resin part is what intimidating me, as there seems to be a lot of types and pigment options to choose from, and it looks like I could spend a lot of money and royally screw up. I know what I need, I need it to sand to a fine grit well. I'd like to have it a nice deep crystal like red (glow in the dark is nice, but I'm happy with just UV reactive if that is all I can get) I'm going to use an oil finish, so and to highlight the wood grain. So, anyone w
Dragon Con bust.SO, and update... :iconInkibus: and I are NOT going to Dragon Con this year. Due to an unfortunate turn of events which had both our main plans of travel and our backup plans imploding, and being hit financial, we just couldn't put a plan together in time that had us not mooching off friends, feeling safe, or a way back if things got bad for some reason..... Not even mentioning trying to transport costume or food or anything. To say were bummed out would be the understatement of the year. A it is, we're going to try again next year, and hopefully things will be more secure. SO if we're kinda scares for the next two seek, we're just avoiding the internet.
OPEN FOR COMMISIONJust wanted to shout out, FrockTarts is Open for commissions right now! I can just barely make a Dragoncon deadline, or better yet, have ideas for Halloween already? Drop me a line! Not sure what I can do? Samples of my work below.

Watermarks and credit due.First off... THANK you everyone who's gotten back to me on my last post! I' will get back to you ASP, but first, I have to address somthing that's taken my crappy week and made it crappier. Today I was informed by a friend on Facebook that one of my piece of work was posted on a Facebook page, and miscredited to another Devant (Note, I am not link to that Devants page... as far as I can tell, they have no knowledge of the miscredit, nor are they claiming my work as theirs. I don't know why they are link to my work, but I don't want them to get any negative blowback for no reason).
The post in question is here And the piece that was miscredited is this one
I commented with links to my DA and FB page, asking them to fix it. So far, this has not been anything

The Hunger Games: An Accidental Statement of Protest?
Catching fire by Kris-Kamikakushi
In Bangkok, Thailand, students are being arrested for raising their hands in the air to flash Katniss’ three–finger “freedom” salute.
That’s right, the Katniss who’s the fictional heroine of the popular dystopian sci–fi “Hunger Games” movie series. The world has changed over the last few decades in a very big way, but some are apparently unaware of it or undisturbed by the stunning ramifications.

The Empire Bargains by dvsdesigner
Who’s the most important person now in the Star Wars franchise? JJ Abrams? Think again!
It begins in mere weeks from now: The countdown to the first of the next Star Wars sequels, Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, the first of a new trilogy for a new generation. The first 1 minute trailer, a mostly wordless montage of series’ heroes, will debut attached to Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 or on Disney-owned ABC Television. American culture stirs in its sleep.

Collection: Snowed In
There is no more stark dichotomy than the conflicting feelings we have about the wintertime. Many find the snow–blanketed landscape makes winter the most serenely beautiful of the seasons. But people die of exposure in the cold. The idea of being “snowed in” evokes thoughts of fireplaces and hot chocolate and snuggling under piles of blankets, of family reunions and gift–giving, and taking an annual “time–out.”
But it also means lost work hours and school days and danger should someone need to go to the hospital through white–out conditions on ice–glazed roads. Winter is the most beautiful but also the

Emotions Abstract by zampedroni
The earliest known artworks of humans, found on cave walls dating back about 40,000 years, tell stories.
Usually the stories are of amazing hunts for enormous wooly mammoths and other food sources. Others suppose they were plans for hunts, no different from a coach’s football plays.
Today we are learning of abstract artworks on the cave walls, seemingly deliberately hidden, and much farther back, painted by medicine men huffing hallucinogenic herbs. The purpose for these totemic abstracts is unclear. While native art worldwide retained its
