I have also taken the initiative to expand further on my revenue horizons and not only expanded my revenue potentials with Google/Adsense but I also went around there and made new contracts with other affiliates. I'm NOT EVEN the slightest bit afraid of any rejections, because I constantly get new offers from advertizes each week. Sure, I am still a small-biz blogger, but I have so much content to show for it.

I've been merging and fusing so many of my variety of interests and it's fascinating to me how they are all coming together now, and don't seem to far away from each other like they once did.

I've become very popular on Instagram since about the 2nd week of January.

Thank you to the people whom have privately expressed their interests in my blogs or content, and have also credited me with inspiring them to be true to themselves, or to expand on their own creative, artistic, or even intellectual endeavors.
I apologize if I can't always take a compliment very well, I've been very stressed for a several years, but this year ain't too shabby so far, just lots of snow.

:star: TO SPAMMERS: I hate u with a  passion. Go screw yourself! I don;t spam u with my stuff, I just share it WITHIN REASON on my own social media. U deserve my utter disdain!

:star: To moochers & con-men:

Do I look like some kind of doofis to you?
I DO NOT WORK FOR FREE. Go take ur "pro-bono" prettyied-up works of tech pandling of misguided rhetoric and shove it.
Maybe u LOVE to prey upon college students, or young people to get free laybor from some suckers, and poor saps, but that bunk won't fly with me.
NO, I will NOT give free labor to you.
NO, you CANNOT have my life's work for free just because you begged me since ur a cheap ass mofo.
I don't care WHO u work for... ALL I HEAR IS MONEY, negotiation, compensation... MONEY TALKS and BULL SHIT WALKS.

I have taught MANY kids & adult how to avoid persons LIKE YOU!

Flattr this


I was a child prodigy artist. I started actual drawing when I was 4 years old, and scribbled on virtually everything since I was 2. I was self taught, then I began winning scholarships & awards, and was in school programs for gifted children. (For which I was often brutally attacked & bullied.)

I had scholarships to attend college art classes since middle school, and attended college animation classes at the U-ARTS in Philadelphia since I was at least a Junior while in high school. While in high school I also studied analogue "Advertising, Art, and Design" (Graphic Art), Analogue "Printing" (With Photography & Developing, Plate Making, Presses, Typography, etc.), and I also earned a diploma in "Environmental Sciences". (So, if you DARE to come at me with your Global Warming Denial NONSENSE WITHOUT having an actual education in the subject, I'll come down so fast on you, you will be hurting for days! Our class was THE affiliate for Al Gore, hand picked, and my classmates went to THE "Earth Summit" in Helsinki in 1998.) Oh, and I can talk some serious science!

I graduated from The Art Institute of Philadelphia Majoring in Computer Animation and specializing in Traditional Cinematic Animation, as well as studied film & video, both analogue & nonlinear digital.

I worked on Projects for HBO Family, Nick Jr., Noggin, and PBS in Philadelphia/Chestnut Hill at "Animation Stew".

I have also worked as a digital colorist assistant at "Top Cow" (Image Comics) in Century City California (near Hollywood & Beverly Hills).

I am also self taught in German (but, it's rusty). And, I also can speak Mandarin Chinese, and some Pekingese (Beijing local dialect Chinese) and have lived in China multiple times. I personally am very self critical, and I don't think my Chinese is very good, but I can certainly speak Chinese because my in-laws are all Chinese and don't speak English.

I have currently taken an interest in preforming arts, most especially Belly Dance, and I still regularly practice in, often daily. I am a student of Bellydance Super Star Zoe Jakes and others, and aspire to study with many other teachers.

I also like: yoga, meditation, Taiji Chuan, Taiji Jianzi, Qigung.

I've taken an interest in sewing again, and have created many costumes, and fashion/clothing.

And, I have a DEEP passionate enthusiasm for TECHNO music. I'm very interested in audio engineering, DJ Mixing, and old school techno: Eurodance HI-NRG, Rave, Hardcore, Happy Hardcore, Dubstep, Acid, House Music, and many vintage German & European Hardcore music.
I very much like new digital technology. However, I'm super psyched about vintage synthesizers, especially the ever coveted vintage Japanese ROLAND TB-303 (Authentic ACID SOUND)!

And, I love film, video, television, and YouTube!

But, I also like photography! I LOVE vintage analogue cameras!
Yet, I also love the new digital! I have a new digital camera now! I LOVE it!!!! I like experimenting!

Oh, I'm also an activist.

Yoga Performance Nixie Concept 001 by BlackUniGryphon

* I will allow this to be shared on: Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and some forms of social media PROVIDED YOU LINK ME BACK, and CREDIT ME.
* IF THIS WORK INSPIRES YOU AT ALL, then FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE CITE ME BY NAME, link back to the original inspiring works, like this one, and give a few words about how you feel about it.

* DO NOT CUT, PASTE, NOR ALTER THIS WORK AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!

One would think that since this is so rough that people would just not mess with it, rob it, defile it, etc... but, I have been WRONG several times. SO< PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL!

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

:star: About This:

This concept is of a Nixie performance intended to be done either on a shore, or upon some rocks, piers, or something outside of water.
I particularly have always enjoyed contortionist preformances, and I also like yoga.

To get an idea of what this might be like, would be something dramatic like the sword dances by Silvia Salamanca showcasing her "floor work" and yoga skills: youtu.be/fdmdqqKDXxc
silviasalamanca.com/

I also like acrobatics, and gymnastics performances.

However, I would NOT like this performance to be done with fast music, but instead with a dramatic slow musical piece.
I very much like electronic sounds with an ambient feel, that might build to some dramatic flare using deeper tones, and slow precisions, and fusion with actual analogue instruments such as electric violin and/or guitar, with drums, and perhaps dulcimers or zithers, with zills.

:star: NOTES:

This artwork is very rough and sketchy concept artwork.
the proportions, are of course not anatomically correct, and are intended more as a conceptual development of original ideas, and dreamy imagery.

I have still not entirely worked out the whole "formula" or designs of the tails yet. They might actually end up even longer than this.

I am still developing the visual designs of the prehensile nature of the tails. I want to push the artwork, styles, and thought concepts as to what it might be able to do, as well as to evoke mood, and feelings within the viewer.


:star: Other Credits or Points:


I have been SCARED TO DEATH of someone robbing my ideas, so I haven't publicly spoken about my concepts.
I am, however, inspired by several things which I shall respectfully mention HERE:

* Vintage Classic Walt Disney's Fantasia
* 2008 Beijing Olympics
* Macross Plus
* Akara Project: www.akaraproject.com/
* Nagasita & Apsara: nagasitadance.wordpress.com/
* Ambrosia Tribal Glam: www.ambrosiatribal.com/
* Lindsey Stirling: www.lindseystirling.com/
* Music by The Great Vince Clarke
* Rebecca Horn: www.rebecca-horn.de/pages/biog…


Much of these are incredibly rough. For one, I'm very out of practice due to depression, but also I don't want them to be too clean yet. It's kind of a work in progress.

I'm still working on figuring out backgrounds, pans, backdrops, color schemes, etc. But, mostly I want to do something utterly new, different, fresh, yet some very few inspired bits, yet original. I DO NOT want it to look like a total rehashed something that has already been done, but a new birth of something VERY ME.

:star: About This:

This is just some rough, sketchy concept artwork of an idea I've had since 2008, which you can find in my gallery.
It's been incredibly on my mind lately, and it's kind of morphing, and expanding.

The original concept was for a musical animated short... which I still like the idea of... however, the concept is currently starting to grow in my mind, and dreams, and day-dreams.... and becoming more than something small.

WIP 3 Weirding Sister Unicorn Fates 001 by BlackUniGryphon
WIP 3 Weirding Sister Unicorn Fates 001
In case you haven't been following my Instagram ( BlackUniGryphon ) you wouldn't know about this sketch.
It's for my friend Debora. Hope I spelled it right...

I keep forgetting to finish it.

There was a cleaner "clean-up" version of this, but my spouse came home and I screwed it up, and it wasn't saved.

it was supposed to be a Unicorn version/interpenetration of the 3 fates, or the Weird Sisters, called many names in ancient mythology from the Mediteraians cultures, or European cultures.

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!
YES! THIS IS MY REAL NAME!
任思麒 IS MY REAL CHINESE NAME! In CHINA my name REALLY IS 任思麒! It is a REAL NAME! This kind of name is called a 名字 "Ming Zi", and there ARE RULES about HOW to correctly achieve a correct "Ming Zi".

One kind of name is a 名 (ming) and another kind is a 字 (zi), and THEN in modern times their is what is known as a 名字  (Ming Zi)
In the modern formalized 名字 "Ming Zi" the 名 "ming" is used as the family paternal surname (however can be altered due to Taoist rules), and the 字 "zi" is used as the personal or individual name, which can also be changed or altered according to Taoism rules.

It is NOT my Chinese "hao" name. (Another kind of formal name generally only used in ancient times, or by artists, poets, writers, or scholars.) It is not my Nickname, nor my Chinese family nickname name. (There are actually several categories of names in Chinese culture, and Taoism traditions.)
It IS MY REAL NAME!
And, My REAL birth name is NEXT TO THAT! FFS!

Just because I am NOT an ethnically Sino human being does NOT mean that my Chinese name is not my real name. MANY ethnic Sino individuals have both a Chinese character name, usually a 名字 Ming Zi, AND a Romanized name, not just folks living in the Western World, BUT ALSO IN ASIA! AND BOTH ARE THEIR REAL NAMES! I know, because I have lived in Asia several times myself!

AND, in fact, because my spouse is Chinese the entire family has been enrolled in the Chinese healthcare system in Boston and Quincy since I was pregnant with my daughter because he cannot understand medical terms in English. in the Boston offices, my name is listed as 任思麒, and they often call me into the offices pronouncing it the Cantonese way, because most people there tended to be South Chinese. We, however, are NOT Southern Chinese, and we speak the standard national Han Chinese dialect: Mandarin.
