Freelancing and Happiness--- I suspect there's a reason that most freelance artists have strong personalities. The entire lot of us seem to have established a strong sense of self and deep personal philosophies.
--- Among amateurs there's a dangerously common conflation of joy with passion; the higher you climb, the more nuanced peoples' conceptions become. I want to explain this correlation a bit.
--- Children draw, it's as natural as learning to walk. Adolescents doodle during class; when we're young, scribbling of this nature evokes a sort of playful joy as the mind is freed from attending the mundane demands of reality. It is a fleeting, puerile emotion which revisits us occasionally, even as adults. Because of this, it is easy to imagine art-making as a buoyant, whimsical process and the artist himself in a position worthy of a great deal of envy.
--- The ambitious, fledgling artist knows only that he enjoys drawing; he cannot imagine otherwise. To be successful as a freelance artist requires grit and pas

Watcher and Artisan Craft Feature?Hey there,
I am planning to make two journal features in the next weeks – one for my watchers and one for artisan craft / sewing things. And maybe some more in the future, if you like that idea.
I will start with the artisan craft thingy, so post TWO thumbs of the work you think is your best in this ( http://comments.deviantart.com/18/1862322/3053802886 ) forum thread. I will choose some of them for my feature and send you a note when I posted it.
The feature is scheduled to be online at the 24th. Maybe some days later depending on how many people want to enter.
I am mostly interested in dark or nerdy things, maybe some steampunk or cosplay/LARP. But I prefer sewed or knitted works. And please write why you like that work the most or why you made it (I will write your comment down in that journal, too).
For the watcher feature just be one of my watchers (I will check it. ) and write a comment in this journal post with the picture you would like to se

I wonder if you're enjoying
the curvature of her back.
The spine, a row of ossified crowns
crowded and curved around that defining neural superhighway;
that extension cord,
adventurously connecting the visceral
to the peripheral.
The horseshoe crab vertebrae
scuttle to break through skin at your touch;
a defining shiver.
I see your hands
around the rounded hills of her shoulders.
Scapulae jutting out with the extremity of the bend,
like a chicken's wings.
And the bands of these dorsal muscles
stand up like wings,
cast shadows in the dimples of the pelvis that she lifts;
that will fold o
