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.

Boho Chic Blog BG Autumn 01 by BlackUniGryphon
Boho Chic Blog BG Autumn 01
:star: Not much going on at this blog yet: bohoblackunigryphon.blogspot.c…

This month my Instagram started blowing up when I started to share my Boho Chic-ness photography, and discovered that I'm a Gypset or Gypsetter.
Who knew? I've been popular before on Instagram in 2012, and 2013, but people didn;t talk much, or comment... but, now I actually get comments, messages, and not just spam.

So, I started a Boho Chic/Gypsetter blog... but, Google/Adsense won;t even allow me to monetize it with them until 6 months later. So, I was about to give up... then, I discovered how to outsource my monetizing ads. So, that's what I will probably be doing.

Anyways, I redesigned this BG about 4 or 5 times.... I forget. Web design isn't my strongest point in life, but I can get by with some basics. However, it still boggles me that most folks STILL have no concept of HTML, Shockwave, JAVA, or blog feeds, let alone feed readers, outside of my college, artists, and geek circles. How do u even use the internet without understanding that? It's not like it's 1995, it's 2015. Whatevz...

*reluctant sigh*
Needless to say, this issue is so common, I have lost count how many times I have sat people down to explain the simple aspects of these things, to people whom get so hung-up on the thought of having to stay still, calm down, listen without interrupting, and yes: you will actually need to read some stuff for any period of time from whole seconds, to a full minute, or even several minuets... and even take your times to slowly read some basic instructions, until your brain gets it... *long sigh*
I spent so much time in 2014 explaining how to "tweet", that I am used to it...

Anyways........ I might just redo this later on, because I'm sure I will be doing further work on this blog... it just takes time.

I have a TON of stuff to blog on here. I've just been SO caught up in redoing my Pirate cosplay blog.... and pressure to get a local job as well.

New Pirate Blog BG Whimsical Autumn VIBE by BlackUniGryphon
New Pirate Blog BG Whimsical Autumn VIBE
:star: The cosplay pirate character blog: pyratemarshallkandice.blogspot…

I'm very happy with this newer version. I think by now most folks have wider screens, unlike in early 2013 when most folks didn't. Best of all, my new re-design of my blog allows you to see the Graveyard trees in the center since the blog is translucent, when they couldn't really be viewed previously.

Also, I now have my watermark of my logo on the image.

Pirate Marshal Kandice Sonnet 29 Shakespeare by BlackUniGryphon
Pirate Marshal Kandice Sonnet 29 Shakespeare
This Sonnet is by William Shakespeare.
(Or whomever actually wrote this stuff and used William as his patsy cover front-man)

It's known as "Sonnet 29":

    When, in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,
    I all alone beweep my outcast state,
    And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
    And look upon myself and curse my fate,
    Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
    Featured like him, like him with friends possessed,
    Desiring this man’s art and that man’s scope,
    With what I most enjoy contented least;
    Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
    Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
    (Like to the lark at break of day arising
    From sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate;
    For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings
    That then I scorn to change my state with kings.



No, I haven't mastered reciting it yet...
But, this sonnet keeps popping up everywhere, on TV, in movies I've been watching, on the radio...
I have NO IDEA WHY these weren't taught in high school. IMHO these are much better than his plays, even tho' it's very EMO.

Anyways, does it look MEME-ish? That's what I was going for.... ;P

Pirate Cosplay Blog Redesign WHIMSICAL AUTUMN VIBE by BlackUniGryphon
Pirate Cosplay Blog Redesign WHIMSICAL AUTUMN VIBE
:star: HERE IT IS: pyratemarshallkandice.blogspot…

Major overhaul redesigning my blog for my Pirate Wench Cosplay character! I had to rebuild the entire front, and discard the so-called high-tech version, which lacked what the older formats excelled in.

I've also expanded my monetizational horizons, due to Google Adsence jipping me... since I went rogue and actively perused affiliates directly, I realized JUST HOW MUCH MONEY I LOST! I still have contractor Adsence contracts, but now I also have the benefits of globalization at will at my fingertips.

I'm seriously NOT the best programmer out there, admittedly so.... and frankly, I tend to HATE doing it often, because I'm dyslexic, and frequently screw it up.
But, anyone can do this... just keep it as simple as you can, and you'll be just fine.

Here's my Whimsical Autumn theme. I had to redesign the entire background several times. I have already lost count how many time I redid the background from scratch. Easily over 150+ because I am SO PICKY!

I had a significant audience in 2013 and early 2014, however, due to life being HELL ON EARTH, and being constantly sick (of which I'm much better now *knocks wood) my audience dwindled out, or fizzled out... yet, even so, this blog is STILL my top preforming blog! Even when I completely neglected it for months due to illness since the end of September, I still had significant traffic each month.... translation: I WAS THROWING MONEY AWAY! Hence my decision to expand upon my monetizing horizons, and capitalize on them.

Facebook screwed me out of an ad deal this week, and upped my price JUST when i was about to close the deal 5-6 times the original price! PISSED ME OFF! But, i'm savvy now... and I've learned their lil' angle...
