ghot answered: Many questions, dude. But mainly, how does freelance illustration life treat you? Do you have to spend a lot of time advertising your work?
The first couple years out of school were brutal, took a lot of terrible jobs that I would never -ever- put in my portfolio, just…
I’m just a guy who draws pictures, but I’d like to ask you to consider donating a little bit towards Typhoon Haiyan recovery efforts in the Philippines.
I’m half-Filipino, so this one (literally) hits close to home. Not to diminish the tragedy of other storms like Katrina, or Sandy, but the Philippines desperately needs help; the lack of infrastructure in large parts of the country, coupled with lack of funds has left a LOT of extremely vulnerable people.
Again, I just draw pictures but this post that has been going around outlines more specifics, and also how best to contribute to respondent efforts.
Barring that, I saw that both tumblr and facebook have made it easy to contribute funds with links directly on the dash/wall.
You can also just simply donate to the Philippine Red Cross at their site.
I rarely ask for you guys to reblog/share/spread the word, but I would greatly appreciate it if you did for this one. Thank you!
Wood Sculpture | Morgan Herrin
Are you freaking kidding me!? Anyone who has worked with wood knows how difficult of a medium it is to work with, let alone carve… This Richmond, VA based artist Morgan Herrin transforms wood into spectacularly detailed figurative sculptures. The sculptures sometimes take a year to create, and depict some surreal imagery.
I have teamed up with Analog Sweden for a project called Moments Lost.
It will be a mix of music, written stories and illustrations inspired by the world of Blade Runner and beyond. Moments Lost is a crowd funded project just launched on Indiegogo.com. There will be signed limited prints, t-shirts and vinyls with my artwork for the project as perks.
Your contribution would mean a lot to us, I really do think this can be something special if we get the funds to realize it. Please share this and visit our Indiegogo page to find out more. Hope you find it interesting and worth supporting, if so the sooner the better so we get a great start on the campaign. To visit our campaign page please CLICK HERE
You can also join the Moments Lost art contest connected to the project. To find out more about that CLICK HERE Thanks!
I think I’ll fund this once I get some spare money !

I wanted to make a halloween post of a painting I did but I think I left my sketchbook in my studio :<
Also didn’t grab it b/c a pipe bursted in the school so I had to run out.
Watch this amazing short film about a long-submerged city and a man obsessed by the passing of time.
I love when people make their own stories and mythology.
I posted this three times tonight and had three people tell me that I helped save their life. Thank you to those people who have decided to struggle through to let us enjoy the gift of one more day of their prescence gracing us all. I hope that you all reblog this, to save another few. Because we all dserve another chance and hope in life. I went to the hospital 6 times before I decided to keep my life but I hope none of you suffer that much. And I hope you all can make that scary, seemingly painful, blind, hoping, wonderful step to live.
I want to help you in any way I can. ANYTHING. I mean it. If I had had someone stay with me and text me or talk to me all night, just one time, it would have changed my life. I know how hard those nights can be.
^I love this girl more than words can express.
foundmywaywheniwaslost: I am always here if anyone ever needs to talk/vent. You have a purpose, Please Stay Alive. <3
Not just for tonight but for the rest of your life. You have so much to look forward to in the future that if you choose to kill yourself, it will be the biggest mistake of your life. You’re going to miss out on people you’ll never be able to meet, kids you’ll never have, a partner to love or partys to go to. There’s just too much that you’ll miss out on. You deserve and have the right to be here as much as the person next to you does. You’re just a drop in the ocean. You were meant to be here and you have a purpose. Don’t ever forget that. And if you feel like you don’t, just believe in yourself because you do. If you ever feel worthless or like shit, know that I love you and those dicks that tell you shit are jealous that you’re who you are because there’s something about you that they wish they could have. Please stay strong and never give up because things DO GET BETTER.
3rd time I reblog this xx
Keep your self awake, I hope your here to stay. This day is not yet over, let me be your four leaf clover.
Reblogged it and queued it so it’ll post tomorrow too. And the next day and the next so I hope I can save someone. We all love you.
someone messaged me this morning saying it helped and thanked me, so im reblogging this again, and queuing it. stay strong guys.
reblogging this everyday no matter what
I wonder how many people this has saved?
From experience: Hang in there. Don’t look further than the next day. You can decide not to do it. Find pride in that decision. The bad will pass or be transformed. Good things will come to you that make you glad you stayed alive.
