Before I go through the CV, I thought I would try to get my reading list for the year put up.
Artists + Collectives
deviant-art.com in general but in particular, kept watching puncturedscrotom and fealasy, two big influences on me.
robert carter's site, Crackedhat
Nathan Bedows' blog
The transport tycoon's nds rom homebrew forum
NDSthemes (can post art for nintendo ds backdrops)
john kricfalusi's blog
lazy gamer blog
Starcraft II concept art
World of Warcraft: Lich King page (The animation on that page is beautiful. Though, it's Blizzard so I wouldn't expect anything less really)
Bert Simons paper sculptures
pown.alluc.org (This is a good source of gif meme animations, the linked one being one of the best just because it's an incredible bit of hand drawn animation, but others such as this one and this one are eye-poppingly awesome too. This one is also worth a watch even if it is pretty anti-woman so don't listen if you're sensitive. You sissy.)
