The artist in me loves it when people respect the intended use for my shared art. It gives me the warm fuzzies to see how they make use of it.
 
"The Circle of Ingress"

This T-shirt design represents the cyclic nature of Ingress, and the battle for control of XM and the minds it influences.

My second #ingresswear  submission. +Ingress  #ingress   #enlightened   #resistance   #capsule   #capsulecode  

Thanks +Doc Harvard for the portal graphics.

Riddle me this, what warm one day and freezing your tender bits of the next? Freaking MI that's what.

MI I hope you enjoyed all 3 or 4 days of spring, summer, and fall.

Dragon fly tattoo line work for Lisa Cohen.

If you follow +Lisa Cohen you'll know she has decided to get a tattoo and she's honored me with the opportunity to design it for her. Below is the first round of freehand line work for that tattoo.

The inspiration she provided me was a combination of tribal, fantasy, and the Japanese style of brush writing [don't remember what it's called]. I decided to start with the tribal influence for the line work with a hint of the brush writing style in it.

The way I do my line work is very similar to the way the tattoo artist will apply it to the skin. I find this works for a truer representation of the freehand work. After the line work is done I move to coloring, which I'm working on now. Once the person I'm designing for agrees on the line work and has an idea based on initial color work I move the image into photoshop or illustrator, depending on if there is color fading/blending or if the colors have hard separation. After that we go back and forth until we've reached what the person wants and what can be applied to the area the tattoo will live.

The challenge I have with Lisa's tattoo is that it's on the wrist, which means I have to be very mindful of ink creep as the tattoo ages. This means I have to be mindful of just how detailed I get.

There's still more to do but I thought I'd go ahead and share this. Plus, thanks to the encouragement of some folks here on G+ I've decided to start taking commission. No I don't have a portfolio because I've just been doing this for friends for years and never thought about doing it.

While I build up my portfolio this is the deal I'm offering, if you don't like it you don't pay for it. I do keep the work though and you won't be allowed to use it for your tattoo.

If you're interested reach out to me here so I can manage things until I get the "official" stuff set up that a tattoo designer should have. The line starts behind Lisa. :)

P.S. If you want to know how I charge it's based on the complexity, size, and location. I only charge for the design and not the other stuff like scar covering, tattoo covering and things like that.

NOTE: I'm not a tattoo artist, I just do the design.

If you guys get a double of this my apologies. G+ on my connection wasn't behaving.

+Joe Philley and +Brandon Badger I've been thinking about creating an Ingress based / inspired fan merchandise store but I wanted to know what the legalities were before I did.

I've got great ideas but I don't want to step on legal toes that may be involved with selling such fan created work for sale.

Edmund Fitzgerald Porter by Great Lakes Brewing Co. tastes better than I thought it would.

Not being a native Michigander I had no clue that the Edmund Fitzgerald was a real ship and that the story the song tells was real. One day I ran across it practicing random google-fu and was all excited. The natives at the day job all laughed at me because it is apparently common knowledge. I of course reminded them that I wasn't originally from MI so they graciously forgave me and told me about the Gordon Lightfoot song. I then showed them Detroit's Bawdy Boys version.

I've linked the MySpace page for the song but hearing them perform it live is so much better. And don't laugh about MySpace, Justin Timberlake is doing a great job with it, well his people are, for bands.

After we swapped songs they then informed me that there was a Edmund Fitzgerald beer. They neglected to tell me that it is only released at a certain time of the year until after I searched all over for it. Well it's that time of year and I finally get to taste it.

It's not what I expected from a porter. It's got a softer creamier taste than I imagined it would. For some reason I thought it would be a crisper porter - I tied the taste to the November winds it talks about in the song so it should of had a crisper taste. :P

Overall I'm not disappointed, especially since I found it on sale. If you can get it in your area, or have a way to get it sent to you, then you should give it a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Also, if you want to watch the Discovery channel show that talks about it you can see it here: SHIPWRECK: The Mystery of the Edmund Fitzgerald

Quality isn't that great but I found it very interesting, but I do have a fascination with shipwrecks and specifically the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Non-oil based green fuel that already is as cheap as current gas prices in some places.

This needs to be reshared, either it's legit or it needs to be debunked. If legit the world needs to know. If not legit then the world still needs to know so they don't get sucked in.

Me personally, I think it appears legit based on what I've seen.

[edit note]
Corrected a bit of spelling I noticed was wrong.
 
Just going to leave this here for people who understand the science of turning sea water into a viable fuel source better than I do...

+Richard Kuhn I does have a long way to go but the fact that it hasn't been shut down is exciting for me. As the article states, there's a lot of different benefits to this besides not burning fossil fuels.

If it makes it to the light of day and car companies actually make it cheap enough for us common folks to buy I think it'll go a long way to overcoming a lot of the challenges around oil based fuels.

I am curious as to how big this model airplane is though. If it's the size of some of the smaller drones then using the water fuel for those alone will save the U.S. government a lot of money. And we can optimistically hope that saved money will go towards more intelligent spending. Yes, sometimes I can be a delusional optimist. :P

Social Strategist and founder of 42wd Publishing - A revolution in publishing and ePublishing
Introduction
Doc Harvard Social Strategist is the founder of 42wd Publishing. We say founder because while 42wd Publishing is a company it is founded in community.

Doc Harvard the Social Strategist has almost 20 years of experience in helping make brands social and helping brands to build trust. Some of these brands include MTV, Xfire, DIY, HGTV, FoodNetwork, Detroit Zoo and many Indie-Companies [ This includes people like Indie-Comics and Indie-Authors ]. He believes so much in brands being social that he founded 42wd Publishing42wd Publishing is an open model community sourced publishing company; which is a fancy way of saying We Are You. The company's whole existence was created out of a need to provide better opportunities for creatives [ poets, writers, novelist, authors, painters, sculptors, comic artist, and so forth ] to gain exposure to the people who would value most from their work, the community.

Every product and service that has been and is being created by 42wd Publishing is a direct result of social. These products are driven by community, consumed by community and are the direct result of the community expressing their needs.

Some other places you can find me are on the 42wd Publishing Blog.

I'm Famous
Apparently I have achieved some level of stardom as I am now being impersonated, even if it's rather incomplete and a poor attempt at it.


Like many of my comrades here I am a sapiosexual - I like brains [In the zombie and non-zombie way.]

I created the word fictacide

fic ta cide -
Noun:
1. The deliberate and lawful killing of one fictional person by another; murder
2. The content creator that deals and or is faced with such fictional crimes.

By day I bare the burden of these corporate titles [o.k., they really aren't that much of a burden]: web designer, graphics designer, SEO, social media guru ["their" idea, not mine], UI / UX expert, user advocate, Social Strategist and Graphic Samurai [my idea, not "theirs"].

By night I am the super secret [practically unheard of] superhero to content creators around the world. I'm working very hard to change the way publishing and epublishing is done. With my publishing company 42wd Publishing LLC I'm working to publish content creators; not just their content.

I am seriously passionate about changing the world. I fully believe in teaching a person to fish. I am working towards starting education programs, art revitalization programs, library rescue programs and city revitalization programs. My goal is to use 42wd Publishing as the vehicle to do this. Hopefully you guys will help me in this adventure.

I'm also very fond of experiments. 42wd Publishing started out as an experiment and all the products it has to offer are based on experiments.

My Current Location - USA, MI, Ypsilanti / Ann Arbor / Detroit
My Skills - Social Engineering, Design, Graphics, Writing, Google+, Blogging, Publishing, ePublishing, and thinking outside of a tesseract.

Google+ users I recommend:

Ayoub Khote - Interesting streams and I work with him on differnt projects

Elaine White - She always seems to find the most interesting images

Fernando Fonseca - creator of NLD*42 [Pnut-42's partner in crime]

Liz Fong - even if you don't agree with her political views she expresses them well

Daria Musk - in my opinion, the greatest hangout singer around

Content Creators of 42wd Publishing:

Stephanie Reeves - Creator of Bad Artist and average G+ user [she likes the games]

Carrie Sorensen - up and coming author we hope to be working with soon

Jessica Ralston - content contributor to 42wd Publishing and willing victim of one of our publishing experiments

Donnelle Wheeler - Lover of food, oddities, DM / GM-ing, and content contributor to 42wd Publishing

Made in reference to this psuedo-rant:

If hipster becomes synonymous with geek I will abandon the geek boat and declare myself a nerd. Then I will use the geek side of the force to solidify the nerds under one banner and we shall create a technology that shall rain down fiery death upon the wannabe geeks and we shall call it PieNet!

And just how many movies did I just reference there? :P
