Thesis Project.

Hey gang.

Thanks for hanging in there with me and checking out the new work.  My hiatus from DA was not spent playing X-box, but working on my thesis and trying to finish this madness that they call the M.F.A. or Masters of Fine Arts.  I have a few other choice words to apply to the M.F.A. initials but I'll keep this family friendly.

It's been a tough four years (should have been three, but stuff happens) and I'm finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel.  Unfortunately, that means that the next two months are going to be nothing but school related art making and all commissions, fanart and other fun-stuff are going to have to be put on hold until late October.  (If I owe you a commission, and you don't want to wait, contact me in a note and we can work something out.)  Hang in there and I'll make sure it's worth your wait.

As for the art that I am putting up over the next few months, depending on your political bent, you will either love it or hate it.  That being said, I'll post a version with and without the text since you are here for my crappy drawings and not my crappy politics.  I thought I'd take a minute to explain the work so that hopefully you can understand what the greater purpose is.

I've spent a considerable amount of the last 8 years researching propaganda and I've come to understand it pretty well, and to see it everywhere.  This has left me bitter and cynical and unable to give money to a cable provider in good conscience.  I wouldn't call myself a "Conservative" or a "Liberal", a "Republican" or a "Democrat."  Those kinds of labels and the doctrines that come with them make it too easy for us to passively participate in politics and legislate from our armchairs before we settle in to watch "Game of Thrones" "The Voice" or "Keeping up with the Kardashians"...pick your poison.  Instead, I choose to compare what I believe as a result of the morals and values I was raised with and those that I've adopted as I've grown into an adult.  This makes it difficult for me to subscribe to any one side of the political continuum.

Speaking of continuums, I have a grand plan that will result in 33 images over the next few months similar in style to the "Enforcer"… .  While the Enforcer image would appear to be very conservative, it will have a counterpart that will be very much in line with liberal thinking that utilizes the "under the red hood image I posted last week."  These two images will fall at the extreme ends of a visual continuum that illustrates the gun control argument from extreme left to extreme right.  With each poster in between, I'll gradually reduce the intensity of the message until it gets to be very moderate.  So the liberal posters will transition from extremely Liberal to moderate on the left side of the continuum moving left to right toward the center. The conservative side of the continuum will work the same way except the most extreme posters will be on the far right and will become less intense as they move to the left toward the center of the continuum.  The background colors will be blue on the left and red on the right and will become less intense as they move toward the center of the continuum. There will be 11 posters on the liberal side and 11 posters on the conservative side.  In the middle of the continuum, there will be 11 posters explaining the 11 techniques of Propaganda as outlines by Magedah E. Shabo in here book "Techniques of Propaganda and Persuasion."…  Check it out as it is an easy read and really helped me to understand and Identify how our government is so blatantly using this stuff on us on a minute by minute basis.  I'll put up a diagram that shows the thesis  outline so you can see what I am talking about.

I hope you are all doing well.  Thanks for all the faves and the new watches that have trickled in while I've been away.

Wondering if I could get an update or an email response about the Agent Venom commission. Not trying to sound pushy, just wondering.

Hey man

I have the lines done , just havn't had time to color it.  I can show you the illo so far if you want to see it, or I can wait.  Hope you are well my friend.  Been busy with my thesis, and preparing for my first meeting with my professors so that has pushed all my commissions back.  Let me know if you want to see the progress or wait for the finished product.
