Anybody from Toronto, Canada? Any artists studios?

to put pins on them


Hi, people!

Long time no see! ^^
I hope everybody's well, happy and warm!

I'm currently living in Toronto (where it's bloody cold) and I was wondering if some of you were from there.

Also any of you work in artists studios I could maybe join? It'd be funnier than working from home.

Let me know! ^^



**********************************************

I keep forgetting to update the list of my art sites. It's split in two of each, for my two different styles:

For the Museum Horribilium cartoony style:

* Tumblr: www.angilram.com
* Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/MuseumHorribi…

For the realistic style and all things Kelley Armstrong (the Otherworld series, the Darkest Powers, the upcoming YA series art):

* Tumblr: lissethkay.tumblr.com
* Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/pages/Lisseth…

I'm not super active online, since I don't have much time and most of what I'm working on I can't post. But I do try to post sneek peaks regularly. Also, I don't usually post the same things on Tumblr and DA. Just so you know.

Any like, watch and reblog is always very much appreciated! ^^

Have you seen my Mojo?

I seem to have currently misplaced my Mojo. The darn little runt must have run off to somewhere. I'm guessing Bora Bora.
Without it, everything's taxing.
I wish I could take one, two, more days off to try and find it, but alas, life is not so easy that one freelance woman can take a day off whenever she wants to.
I tried to lure it back with chocolate, but alas, my stomach protested long before the Mojo was back.
I tried to lure it with all sorts of delicious tea, but again, my stomach protested it didn't want to swim in that much tea.
I tried to lure it with The Sarah Connors Chronicles on TV while I work, but alas, Brian Austen-Green's too cute to be compatible with work. It does not go well if I actually watch TV instead of working. So it broke my heart, but Brian had to go.
And my Mojo's still not back.
I figured I would take a few hours and work on my fairy tale, due next Halloween, to cheer me up. But my brains just wobbled and pouted like a blob of pudding. It just won't do the work without the Mojo.
So, Mojo, I know I ask a lot of you, but that's how much I need and love you. So please, come back home.
And tomorrow's plan:  tax return to fill. Oh joy. My Mojo's never going to come back.
Ah, the life.

Tu Quoque, Neil Gaman?

We've all seen it in our inbox, there's an art contest around Neil Gaiman's Calendar of Tales... If not, it's here: ayame-kenoshi.deviantart.com/j…


I considered participating until I read the terms and conditions, specifically the licensing of submission/grant of rights.
I'm not sure Neil Gaiman read them, because it's in complete contradiction with what he says on his blog. Even if he made a book out of it, his publisher wouldn't have to pay the artist(s), they'd have to pay Blackberry.
Basically every art you submit becomes the property of Blackberry. They take all the rights, including commercials of each and every entry, without the obligation to even credit the authors.
Not to mention that part of Blackberry's grant of rights clause is illegal. They also claim the "moral rights" (droit moral, in French, because it's a specific thing of intellectual property here), which is illegal. Moral right can't be claimed, bought, or stolen.

Please read the terms before you submit anything and think about the consequences. I will not participate in the butchering of intellectual property, which is the only thing, and a tenuous thing at that, that protects (professional) artists. Wether they intend to use these rights or not, isn't the question, the principle's at stake here.

And I do resent the "art is easy" line. Art is not easy. It's freaking hard. It's decenies of hard work. I spent the last hour trying to understand how neck muscles work to draw them and I'll need a dozen more to get it. Art is FREAKING HARD.

I'm not trying to open a debate, I don't want to get sucked into one, so please don't flood my inbox, if we disagree, there's nothing we can do to convince each other. Just, please, read the terms and mull them over. That's all I ask:

keepmoving.blackberry.com/desk…

LICENSING OF SUBMISSIONS/GRANT OF RIGHTS: By participating in this Promotion, and to the extent allowed by law, participants (i) grant a worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sub-licensable (including the right to sublicense to further third parties), unconditional, fully paid-up and transferable license to use his/her first name, last name and create derivative works of all Submissions (whether acceptable or not, regardless of the form they take, and including, without limitation, any and all copyrights, trademarks, contract and licensing rights, moral rights or "droit moral" and other intellectual property and proprietary rights in Submissions) to RIM, (ii) agree that RIM may license and assign all such rights to Ambassador and others (collectively "Licensees"), (iii) grant RIM and Licensees the absolute right and permission to edit, modify, cut, rearrange, add to, delete from, reproduce, encode, store, transmit, produce, publish, rent, lease, distribute (directly or indirectly through multiple tiers), post, broadcast, publicly perform or display, adapt, exhibit and/or otherwise use or reuse or exploit (without limitation as to when or to the number of times used) and use the content of and elements embodied in the Submissions and the Submissions themselves in perpetuity (except in France, for the duration of rights) in any and all media including but not limited to digital and electronic media, television, cinema, computer, DVD, CD, Competition Site(s), print, audio and audiovisual media (whether now existing or hereafter devised), in any language, throughout the world, and in any manner, for trade, advertising, promotional, commercial, or any other purposes without further review, notice, approval, consideration or compensation to participant or any third party, (iv) shall execute and deliver documents, at RIM's expense, requested by RIM or as may be necessary to vest in RIM the rights and waivers provided herein, (v) agree that email may satisfy any writing requirement that may apply to the assignment, conveyance, transfer, license, or waiver of any of the aforementioned rights, (vi) waive and release RIM from any and all claims that participants may now or hereafter have in any jurisdiction based on "moral rights" or "droit moral" or unfair competition with respect to RIM's exploitation of Submissions without further compensation to participants of any kind, (vii) agree not to instigate, support, maintain, or authorize any action, claim, or lawsuit against RIM or Licensees, or any other person, on the grounds that any use of any Submission, or any derivative works, infringe or violate any of participants' rights therein, and (viii) agree that RIM and Licensees shall have the right and permission to use the name, photograph, twitter handle (if applicable), testimonial or other likeness or personal exposition of a participant (and/or any edited portion thereof) for promotional, advertising and/or publicity purposes in any media, now or hereafter known throughout the world in perpetuity, without compensation or notice to, or further consent of, any participant to the extent permitted by law. Participants also agree that RIM may have access to, may have created, or may in the future create designs, ideas and concepts that may have familiarities or similarities to his/her Submission, and that he/she will not be entitled to any compensation or right to negotiate with the RIM because of these familiarities or similarities.


EDIT:
If you like Gaiman, you can still do a fanart and post it in your gallery instead of the contest. This way Blackberry can't steal the rights. That's way cooler.

EDIT2: Apparently Gaiman contacted Blackberry regarding the problems and they're drafting a new legal contract.
neil-gaiman.tumblr.com/post/43…
BUT, and that's the BUt that will have me not even do a fanart about it, not only has Gaiman NOT read the terms, because he's quoting Blackberry, but his own last jab is implying we're overracting over nothing:  

"And as they [BlackBerry] explained to me, 'Regarding us taking ownership of people's work (i.e. – them losing the copyrights), in fact this is not what the T&Cs say! I think we've suffered from an unfortunate case of misconstrued legalspeak. We're licensing people's artwork for use, but they retain all rights to their own work. To do with it what they will!' I'm hopeful that the new set of T&Cs will be clearer, and have asked them to put something up to clarify all this for the worried, the troubled, the confused, or the nervous."

Again, read the terms: Just because it is a non-exclusive contract doesn't change the fact they grant themselves rights they shouldn't have and without giving anything, even credit in return. And no, it's not in our heads, for God's sakes, they even tried to claim the moral rights, which is ILLEGAL. I'm glad Gaiman asked them to modify the terms, really, but his last line, well, he disappointed me.

Anyway, rant over, this just leaves me very disappointed and bitter. We're reverting back to the days before copyright was invented to protect artists from companies that would use their work without credit or pay. I'm goint back to work, now. Just had to take it off my chest =_=

Otherworld fans: splitting accounts

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 13, 2012, 3:17 PM

Yep, I mentioned it some time ago... I've split my account in two and I'm going to be a bit more proactive about that.

I'm doing that because I like to make my life harder. Or not. LOL

Truth is, my different styles confuse people. So... To make it easier on people who want to follow one half of my work and not the other, there will be two accounts and a major clean-up in that one. It'll be slow and painful but useful.

:iconangilram: will be only for the Museum Horribilium and anything in that style. It will be associated with a TUMBLR website:    

www.angilram.com

(yes, it's a Tumblr, I just associated it with my domain name, which will change when I figure out how to do that without sending my domain name into limbo)

:iconlissethkay: will be for Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld works, my personal work that are in the same realistic style, and various "serious" (LOL) designs. With its TUMBLR to post plenty teasers for the upcoming books and graphic novel:

lissethkay.tumblr.com

It'll take a bit of time to fix, but I'll try not to spam or scrap stuff randomly.

Hope it'll make everybody's life easier. ^^


Also, I'm so swamped I can't answer all my comments but I read them all and can't thank you enough for them, they make the ride worthwile. ^3^

EDIT: Tried to fix the TUMBLR links, if they don't work, try to copy, paste and delete the spaces:  http:// www. angilram. com    and     lissethkay.tumblr. com

TAGGED

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 10, 2012, 3:07 PM
Facebook l Gallery l dA Portfolio l Watch Me l Note Me

I was tagged by :iconjackpot-84:

Rules

1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person must post 11 Facts about themselves in their journal.
3. Then Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create eleven new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
5. Go to their page and tell them you have tagged him/her.
6. No tag backs.
7. No stuff in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you are reading this." You legitimately (AKA, really, truly, with all honesty) have to tag 11 people.

11 facts about me :

1 - Nintendo, Sony or Xbox ?
I don't play video games.

2 - Who do you play at Street Fighter/Tekken/Soul Calibur ?
Nobody. I really, really don't play video games.

3 - Your favourite dish ?
Chocolate. It's a dish. It is. I swear.
Well, mangos and litchees beat chocolate, but chocolate is soooooo yummy.

4 - You wake up, it's Saturday/ a day you're not working and you have nothing planned. What would be the best way to spend your day ?
I don't understand the question. When does that every happen, a non-working day? Cos I want one of those if they're not an urban legend. I work everyday, sadly.

5 - Plutôt Dineyland ou Parc Astérix ? (Only the French will understand that)
Why chose and not do both?

6 - The last movie you saw in a theatre ?
Batman!!!!!

7 - How was it ?
Great, There was half an hour of "pathos" (verbal incontinence that passes as emotion scenes that weren't in the previous two movies) that could have been shortened, But it was super great. I'm sad to hear there won't be an actual sequel with Robin, but well, I'll survive.

8 - Team Jacob or Team Edward ?
Should them all, let God sort them out.... Because I really dislike Twilight.

9 - What's your favorite phase when drawing  (research, line, color... ) ?
I guess it depends. I like the rough lines... No, it depends.

10 - What would you like to finish before the end of the year (art projets, professional, personal) ?
I have a list the lengh of my arm...

11 - Your motto in life ?
Falling seven times, getting back on your feet eight times.


Must tag people... Everybody's been tagged already, so... If  you want to be tagged, consider yourself tagged. Yep, I do not abide by the rules, but I still love y'all. :p

SKETCHBOOKS and DOODLES

I went to Japan Expo. And I bought pretty sketchbooks. Now I want to do one. I never have time for anything but one quick sketch before bedtime once in a while should make me happy.
Of course, I have plenty ideas... But I thought it'd be fun to ask people for more, because they'll think outside of my box... You know, just in case something catches my fancy.
So I'm open to ideas about themes, but with certain restrictions:

- It has to fit my Museum's style. If you say Transformers, it's not going to work.
- It's better if it's something I can do a quick doodle about. It can be a scene or character from a story, a book, a play, History, mythology, movies, series, a genre, a race (human or animal), creatures. If it's in the public domain, the better, if not, well I can probably still do fanart.
- It can't be your OC. Seriously.
- Avoid the Otherworld or Darkest Powers. These I am already working on a lot, so I'd rather do something different.

And I'll need to eventually learn how to use my Tumblr to post crap and scrap. I'm pretty sure I have enough to do several sketchbooks already... :/

I might never get around to do all I want to do, but just for the fun. To see what's tickling your fancy these days. ^^

Go wild! ^^

QUESTION TO WEBCOMICS AUTHORS ~ ADVICE WANTED

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 12, 2012, 6:28 AM
Your Title - version 2.0

sub-title


ENGL: (FR plus bas)
I would like to pick the brains of artists who have their own webcomics or are thinking about it.

I've been working on my own webcomics for quite some time and wondering about other artists' experience.

What did you choose for your own webcomics? B&W? Screentone? Color? What is better time-wise ? How often do you update? Any thought or experience you might want to share is welcome. Any mistakes you wish you hadn't done?


As for readers, what do you objectively prefer ? Bear in mind that it's not possible to have it all.


FR:

J'aimerais avoir l'avis de ceux qui font des webcomics ou envisagent d'en faire un.

Je travaille sur mon webcomics depuis un moment et je me pose des questions sur les expériences des autres auteurs.

Qu'avez-vous choisi pour votre propre webcomics? N&B? Trame? Couleur ?Avec quelle régularité updatez-vous? Avez-vous des idées, des expériences à partager sur votre webcomics? Des erreurs que vous avez commises au début ?

Et pour les lecteurs, que préférez-vous objectivement? en prenant en compte le fait qu'on ne peut pas tout avoir.

SPAM NOTES ON DA

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 10, 2012, 1:43 PM
Facebook l Myspace l Gallery l dA Portfolio l Watch Me l Note Me

It's annoying. Really.

There are people who send random notes in hope the people who read the notes will go check their pages to know who they are.

Please, please dont encourage them, don't check their profiles, just let them go to hell. If they were kind, trying to start a nice conversation, or asking other deviants to give advice or whatever, it'd be different, but it's just SPAM. It's disrespectful.

And to these people, this isn't Facebook. This isn't about how many FB friends/pageviews you have. It's about art, self-improvement, and interaction with other artists regarding art.

SPAMMING PEOPLE IS FUCKING ANNOYING.



And for the nice people who write me notes and messages, I am late in answering them, but I read everything and try to answer as much as I can. Your messages mean a lot to me and there are no words to express my gratitude for your kindness and support.

FLATTER / APLATEUR (Resolved, thank you!!!)

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 16, 2012, 5:21 AM
Facebook l Tumblr l Gallery l dA Portfolio l Watch Me l Note Me

UPDATE: I'm set and luckily so, thank you everybody! ^^


ENGL:

Hello, everybody!

I've started working on my next graphic novella. I can't say much about it for now, since no official announcement has been done, but it'll be 80 pages long.

And I'm going to need flatters for the pages.

If you are interested, send me a note. The rate is 15 EUR or 19 USD per page. I'll pay with Paypal for international and check for French people.
The pages will come at irregular intervals, and you'll have enough time to process them. If they are more urgent, I'll mention it, but even them, there'll be leeway.

Also, you have to understand that you will not be able to show the pages to anyone, ever. Or talk about the story. These are copyrighted and confidential.


I'm very late in answering my messages, but I will !! Still, thank you to all of you for your support and kindness!!


FR:

Bonjour, tout le monde!

Je viens de commencer à travailler sur ma prochaine BD. Je ne peux pas dire grand-chose dessus pour l'instant, puisqu'aucune annonce officielle n'a encore été faite, mais elle fera 80 pages.

Et je vais avoir besoin d'aplateurs pour les pages.

Si ça vous intéresse, envoyez-moi une note. Le prix sera de 15 euros par page.
Les pages arriveront à intervalle irrégulier, mais vous aurez assez de temps pour les faire. Si elles sont plus urgentes, je le préciserai, mais malgré tout, vous aurez assez de temps.

Vous devez comprendre également que vous ne pourrez pas divulguer ces pages, jamais, ou divulguer des infos sur l'histoire. Elles sont sous copyright et confidentielles.


J'ai pris beaucoup de retard dans la réponse à mes messages, mais j'avance! Je vous remercie pour votre soutien et votre gentillesse!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS by Angilram

Happy New Year to all of you!

I hope this year will see your dreams come true and will see you surrounded by loved ones.

It should be an interesting year, even though it will be quite busy. (I'll be working on my second pro graphic novel, and my other personal projects, and keeping my translating job!)

Anyway, with all the things to come in mind, enjoy your day and plan your wonderful new year. No worries, it won't be the end of the world just yet. Or maybe it will, in which case, no point in worrying about it! ^^

My last journal just disappeared... How strange. Pity I lost the comments, but no need to comment again!


I KICKED NANOWRIMO ASS !!



NANOWRIMO 2011, 50 000 WORDS+ IN

HALF OF THE BOOK WRITTEN.

*
*
*
*
*
*
*
Edits are going to be drastic.



Yes, I write novels and fairy tales, none of them are available to read and see yet. But soon.
This one is Heroic Fantasy, it has dragons and stuff and there will be Elves. Oh yes, there will be Elves.
Half of the first book is done, it's supposed to have two, with leeway for a third one.
I'll start posting stuff about it, mostly artwork related stuff until the book is done.

Which also brings me to the subject I'll come back to later, I've created a second account for that. And soon, I'll make huge changes to this one. It'll be split with one or two others, each for one style / purpose.
Not because I love wasting my time juggling with several accounts, but because it's better carrier-wise that way. The too different styles confuse most people, and it's never a good thing.
More info soon.

Manners, manners - lesson 101

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 19, 2011, 6:00 AM
Every once so often, and surprisingly several times in the past week, some people contact me because they've written a story and it'd be awesome if I could draw the pages, for free or for commission price.
(FYI, in publishing, that's work-for-hire, and you are asking the artist to sell you the copyright of their art for commercial use, which would cost you between 5 000 $ and 12 000 $ for a 24 page comic book, maybe more depending on who you ask, and in some countries, you'd actually have to share the copyright)

The pattern is usually the same: an email full of flattery (sometimes it's kind, but sometimes it's over the top), I answer politely to say I can't take on new projects because I'm swamped, which is the truth, and I try to be nice and encouraging, because it's also encouraging for me that people like my work (but I'm not even sure they really do) and I don't want to risk being rude to someone genuinely nice, or hurt their feelings. Then I never hear from these guys again, no thank you for answering, no comment, nothing. In two years on DA, not one single of them has ever written back, ever. Unless a year or two later they try again.

And to make things even more ridiculous, those who added me to their watch list five minutes before sending me a note signed "your new fan", take me out of it the moment they see I am of no use to them. Perhaps they think they're very smart and I won't notice?
Why on Earth would I ever want to work with someone who has such contempt for me and my work?

Let's face it, they probably sent that same "you're awesome, work for me" email to every comic book artist they could find on DA.

It doesn't bother me that they don't really like my work, or me for that matter.
What bothers me is that they think I'm some cheap moron fruit you just need to flatter a bit to squeeze some juice out of it, and it bothers me that they can't be arsed to be polite past the sugar-coated BS they try to feed me. I'm a person, even on the Internet.

So big lesson: don't be an ass, be polite. The graphic novel industry is a very small world, everybody knows everybody. So treating artists like disposable tools isn't going to get you anywhere.

TAGGED

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 12, 2011, 3:22 PM
:iconjackpot-84: tagged me... So here it is:

~ Rules ~

• 1 → You must post these rules.
• 2 → Each tagged person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal.
• 3 → You have to choose and tag 10 people and post their icons on the same journal.
• 4 → Go to their pages and tell them you tagged them.
• 5 → No tag backs.

~ What about me ? ~

1- Just like :iconladamedepique: , I'd rather starve than cook. So lame, I know...

2- I have arachnophobia and my house is infected with huge spiders (not so much these past months, but when I'll come back from Canada, it'll be my birthday). And my answer to that was creating Lily Spider, a spider character I actually uterly love.

3- I write horror stories but I can't watch horror movies. I have nightmares just hearing people summing-up the plot. (I have nightmares about the Human Centipede and I've never seen the movie or even a picture of it.)

4- I get horrible headaches and migraines and painkillers don't work on them.

5- I get chronic insomnia.

6- To quote my friend Nadia: if someone shot me, there'd be tea pooling out of my veins.

7- I write stories in English and never in French.

8- I'm a teetotalerand totally against drugs of any kind.

9- I'm hopelessly romantic and cynical at the same time.

10- I don't know where I should live and it stresses me a lot.

I just got back from Ottawa, lovely city!

I went there to meet with Kelley Armstrong, author of the Darkest Powers series www.darkestpowers.com/ , and Melissa Marr, author of the Wicked Lovely series www.melissa-marr.com/



I adore their books and it's a priviledge to work with such wonderful authors.

For those who don't know, they are co-authoring a new series, the Blackwell Pages: www.blackwellpages.com/ that will be out in spring 2013.

I felt like a princess, staying at the Chateau Laurier Hotel: www.fairmont.com/fr/laurier


The high tea was sooo delicious! The restaurant, the room, everything was so gorgeous! It was really a wonderful stay.

Even though that was a work related trip, I added two days to see the city and friends and since it's been the first real holidays I've had in eons, it was awesome.

I went to the haunted walk and it was pouring. Fitting for Ghost stories, but not so wonderful when your feet get soaked.

I met up with my editor for the Museum Horribilium, Raina (who happens to be a writer with a very nice YA novel in development) and her daughter :iconsilver-starfire: , with my friend and wonderful future writer Nadia, we had delicious pastries and teas and talked writing and publishing among other things.

All in all, it was wonderful!

Dear Watchers, thank you to all of you who note me or comment, I'm reading through all my messages and slowly answering them. It means a lot to me that you take the time to talk to me, so I will definitely answer each and everyone of you.
I'm just a bit swamped, as usual, so bear with me.
