I keep finding myself in the position of helping to support independent artists on Kickstarter.  But dang it, they deserve a patron.  

Technically Magi


DungeonsDragons √ — THIS is a dungeon crawl series of a whole new kind. Can one world's computer whiz become another world's wizard?
It's definitely worth a look. Watch the video and I'm sure you'll be interested.  It's a mix of sci-fi, fantasy, and roll playing - wrapped up in comic form.






My intent is not to act as a commercial, but to share the work of artists that interest me.  I do not get special favors.  Only the satisfaction of helping someone to get their art into the hands of more people.

I met the artist of the following Kickstarter, Christopher Campana, and he's a great guy; and he's very close to full funding on his Kickstarter. His story is called "The First World," and is an epic fantasy.  Please click through to watch his promotion and see the rewards.




Another Kickstarter I'm backing is by the group of guys from Digital Webbing.  It's called, The Fist of Justice.  They have some big names working on the project and I'm very excited about it.



Just to clarify - I get nothing out of this, other than knowing I helped out great artists/creators (and of course my reward for being a backer).

I would like to share my passion of helping independent artists, and kindle the same fire in you.

I've made some great contacts at comic conventions, but I can't travel to them all.  Kickstarter has helped me find other works that interest me and allow me to throw my meager 2 cents into their pocket.  Here is an interesting story that needs to be told.



I get nothing out of this, other than knowing I helped a guy out and my issue of the comic!
  • Listening to: Rush - Clockwork Angels
I don't normally send notes like this for fear people think they might be spam - but this Kickstarter project is awesome!  Several artists will be creating and illustrating a short story based completely on the lyrics of a song.  They are close to reaching their goal but could use some more backers.  Check it out.



Many of the artists are on DA.  (Links to all of the artists can be found on the Kickstarter page.)




While I'm at it, I'll plug another project that was fully funded on Kickstarter.  Wild Blue Yonder has me absolutely giddy.  Post-apocalypse(like) stories always pull me in.  The writer, Mike Raicht, is such a great guy.  I'm glad I met him at Baltimore ComiCon.  He and the artists are giving the project the attention a story like this deserves.



Zach Howard, the illustrator, is a DA member.

Too much happening to catch up on

Sun Sep 2, 2012, 8:17 PM
I was asked by a co-worker to take a few pictures of her.  I explained that I had no experience with that type of photography.  I'm not sure why, but she was insistent.

We went to two local parks.  After avoiding a hoedown [I kid not] we found a tree with some nice texture I had scouted earlier.  I liked the depth of field I was able to get with the other trees in the background.  We also played around on the swings for a bit.  Good shots, but wasn't the best lighting.

We then went to the other park at a man made lake (pond by most standards).  I liked the color of the small wooden covered bridge.  After cropping out the graffiti, it was a fairly good shot.

Of course, I've taken pictures at family functions or when out with friends.  But, this is my first attempt at a true portrait.


All comments and constructive criticism welcome.

I guess its been some time since I've been inspired to get out the camera.  I have about 2000 shots, but nothing that really makes me say "I need to share this."  So, to work back into the groove, I have decided to take some shots; any shots, then post at least 3 a week.  If you see me slipping, feel free to send me a message and hold me to the 3 pics a week.

Some things going on locally that I could have shot, but didn't:
• Record rainfall and flooding.  The type associated with a once in a century flood.  House pushed off foundations.  People with fish in their fist floor rooms because the water is so high.  You get the idea.  We had about 3 inches (7.6 cm) of water in the lower parts of our basement.  It was all from seepage from the walls, not an overflowing river or stream.  I count myself lucky there was no permanent damage.
• Harvest time.  There are (were) fields of pumpkins and other things that should have been inspiring, but just weren't.
• A Strong Man competition at my local gym.  Some great men and women taking part in the "Put Up or Shut Up" Challenge.

Some things about what has been happening with me:
• I've continued my workouts and I'm maintaining my weight loss and building more lean muscle.  I'd still like to lose 20 more pounds of flab - or replace it with muscle.
• I recently started to work on endurance.  I will be running a 4.5 mile (7.2 k) run in 2 weeks.

What's happening right now:
• I'm watching news the breakdown of democracy in the United States of America.
• I'm listening to yet more rain which is causing more damaging floods in my area.

Here are a few links to my local news website.  They have several galleries of photos of the flooding.

2010 Speedo Run

Sat Dec 25, 2010, 2:11 PM
Speedo Run For The Cause


So, here is the long story.

In 2009, I joined a local gym.  Fuel Fitness
I had been diagnosed with diabetes, but wasn't doing much for my health other than taking my meds.  Something happened in that November and a switch was flipped in my mind.  I joined the gym right before the first Speedo Run fundraiser.  My trainer asked me to run, but I told her that I was a little self-conscious.  However, if I was able to get down to 200 lb (90.7 kg) by the run next year, I would run.

With her help, and the other staff at the gym, I did make my goal weight so I thought I should strip down and run around my hometown nearly naked.  For those that know me, I'm usually shy, but do have an exhibitionist side to me ;)

The weather on the day of the run was bitter.  I believe it was 24°F (-4.4°C), but the wind made it feel colder.  It wasn't too bad as we stood [jumped] around waiting for the horn signalling the start, but as we started to run, the wind picked up and took any warmth away.  But, as we turned at the end of the street, the only thing cold were my fingers.  At 4 points during the run, the leaders would stop and do jumping jacks or push ups to let everyone catch up; letting us all cross the finish line at the same time.

The grand total for this year hasn't been tallied yet.  There are still donations coming in.  I was able to raise donations from friends and family totalling US$ 257.00 Speedo Run For The Cause

My partner David took some photo's, as I had nowhere to conceal a camera :)

I still have work to do, and have a new goal of building more muscle and trimming more fat.  I'm not so concerned about the number on the scale.  I'm OK if it doesn't move at all, as long as I continue to drop pants sizes.

refreshingly cool weather

Mon Sep 6, 2010, 9:08 PM
Open apology


I hope there are still a few people watching me :)

It's been so long, I'm a little surprised myself.  I took some time for me.  I didn't stop mothball the camera completely, but it's been some time since I used it to it's potential.

I've been working out a lot.  Since November, I lost 47 lbs. (21.3 kg) (3 stone 5 pounds)  I went from a size 46 to a 38 pants.  I feel better than I have in years, have more energy, and more importantly...I have been able to stop taking all of my diabetes medication.  I'm keeping it in check with diet and exercise.  Woohoo!

I recently attended the Baltimore Comic-Con.  I had a blast.  I'll be posting a few commissions from the show.

The cooler weather as fall approaches is making me want to get out with the camera more.  Hopefully, I'll have something new to show on that front soon.

I promise to post some features after I get caught up

<div align="left"

The apology isn't for the non-work-safe features...but you've been warned!

It is to all those watching me and to all the great people that I watch...  I apologize.  It has been very busy for me lately.  I haven't had time to devote to DA...not how I like to.  I did go through all the outstanding submissions.  There were some great ones (see below).  I did a lot of :+fav:-and-run.  However, I had to mass delete the journals.  I hate having to do that, but there were just too many for me to get through.

:pc::work: Along with work occupying my time, I've also been going to the gym 3 to 4 times a week :strong:.  Since I joined about a month ago I've lost 6 pounds (2.7 kg or almost half a stone!)  I'm OK with slow and steady.  More importantly, I have less back pain and notice improved posture.

I promise to try to keep up with my DA account :fingerscrossed: :D

P.S. :groups: I just want to say I think the Groups feature is one of the best additions to DA!

I live close to the town that hold the largest county fair in our state.  I've been thinking about submitting a photo to their arts & crafts contest for some time and finally did it.  I submitted this photo of a local road.

Backbranch Road Lightstreet PA by DwayneF

I was not prepared to win 1st place in the Landscape division.  Moreso, I was not prepared to win Best in Category (photography).

While I'm happy about winning and think my shot is good, there were a lot of great shots submitted. The honor of winning is worth more to me than any monetary prize.

I'm going to leave the old features up since they haven't been here very long.  I'll try to post something next week with new features.

Long overdue update

Mon Sep 7, 2009, 6:30 PM
   It's a good question.  First, let me apologize for the old :+fav:-and-run lately.

   For the most part, I've been working.  My team was helping the Christmas side of our department with the Christmas rush.  For a company that makes products to sell for Christmas, that makes our busy season July and August.  That rush is done.  I was back to a normal 40 hour week for exactly 2 weeks.  Now, my team will begin working on Spring items for a company who will remain nameless :target:

   I'm not complaining.  Not at all.  With the economic climate, I truly am thankful to have a job.  Like many other companies; we're being forced to do more with less.

   I have a busy schedule out of work over the month or so.  We're going to see Paula Poundstone at a local club.  There is a Wild Mushroom hike.  I friend is getting married.  And...I'm going to a chili cook-off for a friends birthday.  And then it will be time to get out and see the leaves changing for fall.  I will have the camera with me for all of them.

   Since I've haven't update my journal in so long, I have quite a lot of features.  I could have easily had 3 or 4 times as many.  There are so many great people here, I find it hard to narrow the list down.  I usually like to notify people that I featured their work.  At 57 individuals, I hope everyone understands why I didn't. :D

  • Listening to: Paranoia - Joseph Finder
  • Watching: Battlestar Galactic - final season
  • Playing: Farkle, Hexic, Bejeweled Blitz
  • Eating: Burger and Dogs
  • Drinking: Black and Blueberry Life Water

Mandatory OT

Wed Apr 29, 2009, 9:46 PM
I was informed this week that I will be required to work a mandatory 10 hours overtime...more if the workload justifies it.  That said, I thought I should get off my butt and feature some of the great stuff here on DA.

Ringworld

Fri Feb 27, 2009, 6:39 PM
I recently saw a few deviations that really got my imagination going.  They made me reminisce about the Larry Niven book, Ringworld.  I struck up a conversation with the artist and asked about commissioning something using one of my photos.  Here is the final piece.  I'm very happy with it!
