A print of a Burger from imagekind I made some time ago:


And a strange burger that looks somewhat like the image above (came out of the wrapper this way):



Blue Girl Advent Calendar – Day 6.5

December 7, 2008

I had an old image of an Octopus name Otaki,to make fun of the term “otaku” (nerd in Japanese) and “tako” (octopus in Japanese) and I updated it to the current odd image.

Big Brother comes to Fotolia

March 20, 2008

Maybe that’s a little harsh but this is why I’ve chosen this title for my blog today:

Fotolia has always been a pretty good site and I had no major issues with it over all. I’ve only been a member since 2006, but it was fun to get an idea what people liked out of my illustrations. The pay wasn’t too great with them selling stuff for a Buck and me getting .33 cents a sale. I’m lucky I made anything at all from the site (less than a 100 bucks in the almost 3 yrs I’ve been there.)

Well today I thought I’d transfer over what little meager funds I had in the Fotolia account to my Paypal. I hit the convert credits to dollars button and got this: “All contributers must upload an image of your govt issues id or passport to process funds.” I was like “WTF!!!???” Cause up till now I hadn’t heard a damn thing about this. When did this happen?!? I know they’re based in Europe but this was news to me. I also noticed somehow my account is set up to NOT get the newsletters and I know I was getting them in the past. I never changed that option so I find that odd.

So I wrote them through support and they sent me the email for their “U.S.” liason. I wrote him and he tells me “oh yeah that’s our new policy so that we can fight theft, fraud and just get to know you a little better.” Mind you… they already have my social because every site just about now requires that if you want to sell anything. I just think that it’s ludicrous to require more than that. Giving out your social is risky at best unless you know the site is safe and I knew they were safe but this whole “govt id / passport” requirement has got me up in arms and angry. Plus I just want my $15 bucks or a good portion of it and I’ll just leave. I earned it fair and square. I’ve already deleted all my files. I don’t want them using my stuff w/o my permission if I’m quitting… and I am.

So that is why I chose my title. I think it fits just right especially after what a friend of mine who used to work for the U.S. govt told me. I won’t go into details but it fits the situation.

Anyhow… I guess I just have to wait and see what they say. They, of all the sites I sell at, are somehow lacking in a “delete my account” option. Didn’t they think someone “may” just want to leave? Seems strange…



Art rage (this is not a rant!) ;P

October 26, 2007

Japanese Pagoda 2007

No this is not the rage felt by a passionate artist upon finding their nearly finished work of art has been destroyed by a careless child, guest, pet etc etc…

Instead, this is the name of a shareware program you can use for free or buy called “Art Rage.” It’s actually very reminescent of Painter classic. I heard about this program again and went to their site and downloaded the shareware version. It’s very versatile and easy to use. I really like the feel that you are painting or using pastels or even air brushing. It’s a good little program to draw or doodle in. 😀

So these are some examples I did tonight in Artrage. If you want to see a larger view, check out my photobucket page.

That’s it for now.

Thanks for looking. 😀
