I don't tend to post to my journal here on dA; please use the links to my website and social media accounts if you're interested in up-to-the-minute info. I will continue to post artwork here, though...
Faces of the Great Pumpkin Art ContestThe Cult of the Great Pumpkin, in association with Sinister Visions inc., is sponsoring its very first contest: Faces of The Great Pumpkin.
The concept is simple: Draw, paint, sculpt or otherwise create a portrait of The Great Pumpkin. That is, YOUR VISION of The Great Pumpkin. Since nobody's ever seen him (and lived to tell about it, anyway), his appearance is completely open to interpretation, and that's what we want to see! Let your imagination run wild, commit your ideas to paper, screen, sculpt or pumpkin pulp, and send it in!
Visit the Cult of the Great Pumpkin Contests Page for full details and information, and share / Tweet / spread the word!

New Font : Unquiet SpiritsHead on over to SinisterFonts.com and grab my newest font Unquiet Spirits, the more mature, reserved, stay-at-home cousin of Ghastly Panic. I was going to call it "Gruesome", but turns out there's a really old font with that name already. Oh, well.
New Font : October CrowToday I'm releasing a new font called October Crow. I drew it on Devil's Night (October 30th) while watching The Crow, but didn't have time to do the font conversion part until this holiday weekend. Head over to SinisterFonts.com and grab it!
I've got two more fonts coming down the pipe, as well - Exquisite Corpse and Gruesome. I'll be releasing one per week.
I've also added a photo gallery to the Sinister Visions Facebook Page showcasing Sinister Fonts sightings - if you have any pix to add, feel free!

Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.
Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
