Pour n'être pas les esclaves martyrisés du Temps,
enivrez-vous;
enivrez-vous sans cesse!
De vin, de poésie ou de vertu, à votre guise.

Philippe Halsman had six rules for interesting work
"the rule of the direct approach,"
"the rule of the unusual technique,"
"the rule of the added unusual feature,"
"the rule of the missing feature,"
"the rule of compounded features,"
"the rule of the literal or ideographic method."
How many of them can you identify in this picture?

"Since his death yesterday, Robin Williams has been memorialized through countless tributes, including Flavorwire’s own. As a performer, however, Williams will mostly live on through his work. A nearly four-decade career has left us with a wealth of characters, running the gamut from dramatic to comedic, stirring to hysterical. Here are some of the roles and performances that meant the most to Flavorwire staffers, from Dead Poets Society to Jumanji.”

Please support my nonfiction graphic novel project, The Soviet!

spx:

Dear Tumblrverse! I am excited, and more than a little terrified, to announce that I’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for my nonfiction graphic novel project, The Soviet. Please click the link to find out more, but for now know that I’m just one chapter away from finishing all 223 pages of it, and I (desperately) need your help to finish the last remaining stretch, send the book to a printer, and ship it to potential publishers! I took a year off from grad school in order to write it, and lived entirely on savings for the past year in order to complete it. It’s been a labor-intensive and immensely time-consuming process— almost everything was done by hand, and I created a hand-drawn font specifically for the graphic novel— but I’m excited to finally (hopefully) get this work out there. It’s been in the works since SPX 2012, when I volunteered at the fest and passed around minicomics to anyone I could find. And now it’s *almost* entirely done, and just need help getting it printed and distributed.

Hope you enjoy!

My Kickstarter on SPX! And just two years ago, almost to the day, I drew the first page of my graphic novel, which was then reblogged by SPX, which was then a mini comic, but was soon scrapped in favor of a more interesting style and longer format work.

Time, man. Jeez!

So thrilled though!! Just 5 days until I finish the thing…

saintkyril said: Do you think that sites like Kickstarter are good sites for promoting whatever films, novels, games, etc. you're planning to make? I just got my Associate's in Multimedia and I'm planning to make a video game.

Hey saintkyril! I’m not the most tech or crowdfunding savvy person in the world, but quite a few friends of mine have had great projects successfully funded, and ended up going on to do even greater and more wonderful things in the future, which may or may not have been crowdfunded. Certain people use crowdfunding almost exclusively to fund their projects, which I’m not a huge fan of personally since crowdfunding is incredibly time consuming, and isn’t really sustainable as one’s only source of income. But, assuming you have a few people already familiar with your work that can influence others, it should be a good idea! A lot of Kickstarter/Indiegogo is common sense, but it does take a huge amount of planning beforehand. My video took about 20 straight hours to make… 20 hours for a total of 5 minutes of footage! I can give you a lot more specific advice about crowding but my project is not quite fully funded yet and I don’t want to count my chickens before they hatch ;) I’d explore the site a bit and see if you can find any relevant/similar projects to yours?

EDIT: The Soviet is now a Kickstarter staff pick!!! So incredibly grateful for all of the support— let’s keep the momentum going!
