A friend and I once ran into Jonathan Hyde (Van Pelt) in a pub after seeing him in a production of “King Lear”. My friend said, “Your character in Jumanji gave me nightmares when I was 7.”
Hyde looked him straight in the eye, stepped really close so they were basically nose-to-nose, and said: “Good.”
Then he walked away. What a dude.
My friends and I occasionally have this problem so I’ve taught them this simple method that takes less than a minute as opposed to waiting several for your computer to restart(especially if it’s slow).
What’s great about this method is that sometimes restarting your computer wont fix the problem, but this usually will.
MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE ALL YOUR ART APPS.
This is important, otherwise the changes wont take effect. If it doesn’t work the first time, try again, sometimes it takes restarting it more than once.
For Windows 8, search for “services.msc” in your apps and click on the result. Continue from there!
Now go draw, babies!

Spectrum 21: Gawki
Wow, holy cow. I’m super stoked and honored to have pieces selected for this year’s Spectrum 21 illustration book. (Actually being published in a book next to so many people I look up to is surreal.)
Two unpublished pieces of my original characters:
"Unbirth" - Visualizes the tragic reincarnation of Lyle, a young, naive girl, who drowns, and is brought back to life by a demon who travels back with her to the mortal realm.
"Wandering" - Conceptual illustration of Bitterbug, a lone, head strong warrior, who explores worlds of static landscapes in search for why she exists.
I’m so thankful to the judges, my art heroes and inspirations, awesome friends, and wonderful supporters and followers.
What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:
- I am unable to do that
- I am too stressed out to do that
- I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
- My body will physically not allow me to do that
- I am on the verge of a panic attack
- I cannot do that
What people hear:
- I am unwilling to do that
- I am just shy
- I am overreacting
- I am lazy
- I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
- I need a push
- I don’t want to do that
