This is a culmination of my too many interests. It's is an in-between place. It's more focused than my Myspace blog, but less so than my author blog. Here you can find artwork, photography, writing, poetry, book covers, manga and pointless videos. All of these things mesh together to become a reflection of their creator in an in-between place colored like shadows and flavored like frappuccinos and chocolate. It's one heck of a world.

Pet Peeve #2

There are a lot of things in the world that annoy me. (And here you thought I was a sunshine and daisies person, huh?) Most of them I keep to myself, but every once in awhile I think one should be shared for the good of all mankind. This is just such a case.

Pet peeve number two is when someone rejects something - especially in a rather snotty tone - and then later demands - again in a snotty tone - that I redo the redo to change it BACK to the way it was before! Only, they don't admit it was that way to begin with and instead pretend that it is an all new idea that they came up with.


To protect the not-so-innocent I will create an imaginary scenario.

I've done a cover for Madam X. Madam X had semi-specific demands, for instance say a sailboat. I drew said sailboat to look like a REAL sailboat. This was rejected and in the end the sailboat they wanted was one that looked, on the whole, very unrealistic. Weeks later, Madam X reappears and wants the sailboat redone because it is NOT realistic! Ha! "It must have a realistic sailboat *snob*snob*snob*". Never mind that it DID have one she rejected. That has been conveniently forgotten.

So what's the point of this? If you have the balls to change your mind and demand something be put back to the original, then also have the balls to admit that it WAS the original, is not some idea YOU suddenly had and frankly it's your fault in the first place.

Ugh. That would be pretty irritating to me, too!
