Chinese Lanterns Lineart by MandiPope
Chinese Lanterns Lineart
Just some flowery stuff.  Chinese Lantern flowery stuff, to be more specific.  I've taken to drawing flowers lately, simply because I don't know how to draw them very well, so I'm working on them.

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 23, 2015, 2:48 PM
Got a package in the mail from John today --  he found a copy of The Little Prince in its original French language.  I've been leafing through it and trying to remember reading this in high school and how insanely proud of myself I had been.  There was another one in there, cartoons about Freud and psychology, judging by the cover, and a pack of the gum that he has that I like.  (It's lime flavored, and it's really good.)

So, yeah.  Grinning like a goober over that.

Today's been pretty good, all things factored in, especially that last one we discussed two paragraphs up.

Today was my short day at work, which was nice, haven't had one of those for a while because I volunteered on the Janesville East Clinic horns, which are always busy, and kept me at work from 8AM-4:30PM.  Was on the basic direct physician to physician line today, which wasn't too bad, it rarely is, the calls come in at a very reasonable pace, and I read some bits out of "Lucy" while I waited on docs to gimme a ring.  Caught a really good natured doc today who teasingly made fun of Dean Direct, the name of our service, as Dean INDirect.  He was only teasing, though, and even if he wasn't, it was still funny.  I love people who are willing to take things lightly.  There's no reason to be so freaking serious about every last thing there is.  Laugh, already!  Life IS a joke!  (You should hear the punchline to it!)  :D

I'll be up at 4:45AM tomorrow in order to make it to work by 6AM, which is gonna be slightly crazy, but I think I can manage.  I took over for a coworker a few weeks ago because she had some urgent issues to attend to on that date, and I couldn't leave her hanging.  I don't mind getting up early, I'm a perpetual early riser anyhow, (just ask Puppetcancer, I'm up at the ass crack of dawn most days), what I mind tomorrow is how bitterly cold it plans to be.  Dammit, Wisconsin!  Quit being frigid, it's getting old.  I know it's February, but we're seriously having severe weather alerts for dangerous wind chill factors.  (For us, that has to be -30 wind chills or LOWER, if that's even humanly possible to survive.  I can barely manage as it is, and it's 10 degrees out!  Now take forty degrees off of that...  NO.  *insert photo of Grumpy Cat here*)

And needless to say, I'll be turning in early tonight.  'Cause 4:45AM comes really darned quick.

Not doing much at the moment, aside from soaking a few pieces of jewelry in a patina solution.  Waiting to take them out and polish off the oxidization I don't want and leave the rest on there.  It's mainly a waiting process, and ya'll know how great MLP is at waiting.

*snort*

And that's been my day thus far, and it's not quite over yet.  I'll probably put some new art into my brand new sketchbook that I bought today when I got the patina solution because I haven't got much left in my old one.

God love you like I do.

Argh! ... or, The Executive Order

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 23, 2015, 8:31 AM
Okay,  guys.  These orders came from the top.  (Read: just from MLP, not really "executive.")

I am no longer offering any of my art for downloads.

Why, Mandi?  Are you being a selfish bitch?

Probably, my Possums, probably... but I am sick and freaking tired of seeing my artwork taken and posted elsewhere, colored, altered and transposed as someone else's original characters.  I am at the end of my rope with it and I have no other choice than to make it impossible to take my work because some people have sticky fingers.

I wanted to consequently apologise to those of you who DON'T take my work and abuse it, I'm very sorry that you have to pay for the actions of somebody else...  but I have to do this, because this theft crap is getting out of hand.

I've been going through my gallery and taking the download option away, and my future work will NOT be available to download.  Again, to those who didn't take my work, I'm sorry I have to do this.

For those of you who did take my work, JUST TRY TO TAKE IT NOW, YOU WORTHLESS THIEVES!


God love you like I do, my Possums.  Even if you ARE an art thief.

Mandi Pope



Edited To Add:  Jericca/Crowmamma, first of all, happy belated birthday, Bitch!  Second of all, I'll just email you the lines, straight up, 'cause all a this stuff I just typed?  None of it applies to you.

Artist Lancers by MandiPope
Artist Lancers
Me and my adopted mama, Mommy LuanaSpinetti, for our website we created to help defend artists and bloggers and help them get paid a livable wage and what they are worth.

Because artists should not be paid in "exposure."  "Exposure" is not a form of currency.

I really don't know what to say, having my id fav'd is a first.  Really glad you enjoyed my work and I'm rather flushed over your having snapped up so many at once. 
Thank you.

As for your difficulties with shading you have so many people here to assist you, just type in a search for shading and coloring tutorials on the home page here and you'll be both amazed and tickled over all of the wonderful instruction that pops up.
