I'm not sure how many of you have heard of the latest Orphan Works bill, but here's some intel:The following is an article, published to give readers a general understanding of the issue:http://mag.awn.com/index.php?ltype=Columns&article_no=3605&From the article:"If the Orphan Works legislation passes, you and I and all creatives will lose virtually all the rights to not only our future work but to everything we've created over the past 34 years, unless we register it with the new, untested and privately run (by the friends and cronies of the U.S. government) registries. Even then, there is no guarantee that someone wishing to steal your personal creations won't successfully call your work an orphan work, and then legally use it for free.In short, if Congress passes this law, YOU WILL LOSE THE RIGHT TO MAKE MONEY FROM YOUR OWN CREATIONS!"~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Here's a link to the petition: http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/no-to-orphan-works-act.htmlI also urge you to contact your elected representative on this issue. Here's the lookup link: http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml Please don't think "Oh, this doesn't matter to me." It does. Your work is your legacy, your language, your vision - why should you have to pay to claim it as your own?
Our first graphic novel is now available through Indyplanet Done entirely through the use of Poser and Carrara...In addition, a six page preview is available there as well. Check it out, and tell me what you think!!!
OMG!!!! Wow!!! I started a small gallery at ImagineFX Magazine's online site a little while back, and added a few of my pieces there, including "Josephine - Revenge". Well, "Josephine - Revenge" was selected as an "Image of the Day" for their site. In addition, they want to include "Josephine..." and two other samples of my work in their Issue 27 DVD!!! I don't think I'll actually be on the pages, but to be included in the monthly DVD - dude!!!BTW - if you've never heard of ImagineFX - they have the most beautiful print magazine, full of art tips, techniques, and workshops - one of my favorite digital art periodicals, bar none!"Josephine: Revenge"

Hi,This is my first time posting my work here...I mostly work with landscapes, but dabble with some still life--All photomanipulated, of course. Here are a few samples...( parkCollapse )( winter lakeCollapse )
This one is the first in a series (well, at least the first of two) based loosely on the Miyazaki anime "Nausicca: Valley of the Wind". The 2nd one is probably a bit more true to the source, but it's still in the process of rendering.In the meantime, if you want to see the first one, here it is: The Mushroom PlanetPoser 6/Vue 6 Infinite/SkinVue 6.2/Photoshop CS2Lemme know what you think!
Under the cut are some preview images and links to their auctions (click the image to view the auction). These are all one of a kind ATC/ACEO, they are all remarqued and hand embellished. They come in plastic sleeves to keep them safe. I am going to be uploading some more ATC/ACEOs of my other work, some remarqued one of a kind prints and some OSWOAs later on today, so if you don't see something you like now, check my store tonight or tomorrow for some more auctions.

I have several auctions up on eBay right now that are ending in about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Many are one of a kind items like limited edition prints. They sell fast so snatch them up while they're still available!http://stores.ebay.com/The-Faery-Bazaar( images and more links behind the cutCollapse )
