The +J.R. Blackwell and +Jared Axelrod tell the good lessons for the creative peoples!!
 
4 Lessons for Building an Artistic Career: http://devralthomas.blogspot.com/2015/04/4-lessons-for-building-artistic-career.html

Jared and I give advice about the less obvious lessons of the creative life. Like not opening a coffee shop. Don't do it. No coffee shops.
I got the unexpected chance to catch up with my college chums Jared Axelrod and JR Blackwell when they were back in NC for a weekend visit in Greensboro.  Jared holds his comic book  "The Adventures of Comrade Cockroach" J...

Truly outrageous! :)
"Jem and the Holograms" issue #1 available in digital (I don't know if/when it will hit the comic book stores).

Not an April Fool's joke, it was available March 30.  
I'm guessing "Electra Woman and Dyna Girl" will be next.
SHOWTIME, SYNERGY! Meet JERRICA BENTON--a girl with a secret. She and her sister KIMBER team with two friends to become... JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS! But what does it mean to be JEM today? Fashion, art, action, and style collide in the most outrageous comic of 2015!

Great words and life story from +J.R. Blackwell .  Being the "best" from one technical standpoint can be surpassed easily from someone much more well rounded.  

This is why people like +J.R. Blackwell will always be the best in my humble opinion. :)
 
Recently I thanked a client for hiring me. I said "I know you have a lot of choices out there so I wanted to let you know that I'm really happy that you chose to hire me."

And my client said "You know, you're not the best photographer in the area. But I don't want the best. If I wanted the best, I would try to get X, Y or Z away from their employers. We hire you because you are friendly, reliable, open to criticism, willing to try anything we ask, flexible, innovative, and easy to work with. Also, you're good. Maybe not the best, but you're good. That's what we want right now."

I'm posting this for everyone who worries that they aren't the best, so no one will want them. Sometimes clients are looking for something else other than The Best.

Of course I'll always strive to get better. But being The Best isn't always what a client is looking for. Sometimes they want someone who is kind. So. Keep that in mind.

O.K. This is pretty sweet!
 
You could pay $118 on Amazon for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's catalog The Art of Illumination: The Limbourg Brothers and the Belles Heures of Jean de France, Duc de Berry.

We Live In An Age of Wonder

So this is a thing.

It's called PacaPong.
I found it from an autocorrect that went horribly right.
The internet is a place of wonder.

You can find it here.

"I kinda figure if she’s not welcome, ain’t nobody welcome." - My preacher last evening shared this story from Rev Fred Craddock. In light of a lot of the "Religious Freedom Restoration Act"/LGBT discrimination stuff in the news lately and this story, I'm thinking if LGBT aren't welcome somewhere, then I (white/male/straight/Protestant) really shouldn't feel particularly welcome there either ...

I was also reminded that Jesus did invite Judas to the Last Supper too ... still pondering the implications of that ...

If you know the talented and lovely +Christiana Ellis , send her the kind word in her time of not serious but not fun sickness.  Not fun sickness is not fun.
