I have to admit, I’m frustrated. Sales on the book continue to drop and there doesn’t seem to be much I can do to stop it. I’ve tried everything I can.

I got a big-name voice actor to do my trailer.

I got national news coverage.

I switched the book to color.

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).

These are gorgeous

Wow now that’s talent

I quit.

27) Always be aware of your surroundings, and where your friends are.This is just common sense stuff, but it bears repeating.  Just because you are at a convention filled with people who share the same interests, don’t assume that it’s a safe zone.  Like any large group of people, there will always be a mix of awesome people you adore, and others that you don’t know at all.  Whether you are male, female, or still deciding, PLEASE keep the following in mind.* If you are heading back to your hotel at night, don’t walk alone.  You can almost always find a friend to accompany you.* Be sure you know the safest routes.  Just because its’ the shortest route, it may not be the best idea to wander through the parking deck at 1am.* If you are partying with friends, keep an eye on each other.  If the plan is to come-as-a-group, leave-as-a-group, then do that.* I know a number of girls who have created “safe words” to let each other know if something is making them uncomfortable and they need an exit strategy.  “You know that thing?  That we said we’d do?  We gotta go do it now!”* Keep an eye on your valuables.  It’s hard to have pockets in spandex, so if you have a purse or backpack with your wallet and phone in it, know where it’s at.* There are almost always a few people around who don’t understand cosplayers and costuming, and will be loud and annoying about it.  Take it in stride, but if it gets out of hand, call hotel or con security.  That’s why they’re there.Here’s a great link to party safety: http://www.womenonguard.com/-strse-template/safety-dsh-tips/Page.bok#18  In general, don’t let your guard down because you’re at a convention. You don’t have to be paranoid, but just stay aware.  And geeks watch out for geeks.

#DailySketch Live a little dream. 
No Regrets, by Aesop Rock has been one of my favorite storytelling hip hop songs for many years. I can always put it on and see art coming to life. This is just a small, quick tribute to that. 
Original Art available in my store http://skottieyoungstore.bigcartel.com
