First off, this is a very deceptive piece that has plenty of complementary style, but has a lack of consistency. Let me explain. The li...

Mirror of a Monolith by Muffyn-Man
Mirror of a Monolith
I know that I uploaded a piece from my stay at Cannon Beach last month, but this time I couldn't resist. Back at Haystack Rock right before sunset. What you are looking at is the receding low-tide on the sands. My camera could not possibly recreate the sublime experience that I had while I was there; and after being in Oregon's rainforest for 3 days straight, it was overly refreshing to be reminded that green isn't the only color in the world. 

No filters or edits used, taken off of my cell phone around 8:30-8:45pm in late May.

Sanders, Hope, and a Bunting by Muffyn-Man
Sanders, Hope, and a Bunting
I couldn't stay silent any longer, and I wish that I hadn't taken so long on this piece, but we're in the home stretch in what looks to be the scariest campaign I've ever witnessed and may ever witness in my lifetime. I can't say that I'm totally confident that he'll win, but I can say that he seems to be the only candidate in my lifetime that I can argue with 100% confidence to anyone and everyone in my ass-backwards country, that he embodies what the US needs to be to its people and to the nations of the world. It still baffles me that even the bible-belt conservatives aren't vying for him at this point, just based on public policy and opinion. 

But I digress. I can understand why a select few groups would vote against him on something as frivolous as his stance on social issues. The point is, that doesn't fucking matter. Social issues don't mean shit if your society is on the verge of getting fucked by an entirely different entity. 

Yeah, this is the internet and a vast majority of individuals who are going to see this are already Bernie supporters, but there is another way that I'm attempting to pitch this. I'm posting this PNG as a free download to anyone who wants to use it in support of our campaign. Also, the Original piece is for sale in the form of a $200 contribution to his campaign or more, and a $50 payment to myself. If you show proof of your donation (forwarded email or screencap of receipt) made anytime after May 26th, you'll be eligible for the Original. It's going to be first come first serve in order to be fair, and I'll update the description and title if it does sell. 

Even if you can't buy the original, even if you think my piece may look like shit in your opinion, I encourage you to please support him anyway you can. At this rate he needs the votes and the support more than anything.

Maki Nishikino tease
Man, its been a while since I've posted anything even slightly risqué, and I kinda wanted to try out a dakimakura style pic for a while. I do this for a bit of a reason. First I have a friend who desires a pillow design some time in the future, but also, I just miss sketching the female figure. 

The figure is Nishikino Maki from Love Live! which is a series that I was suggested to, and took on reluctantly. It's one of the many recurring Idol group dramas that plague the Anime scene on an annual basis. It was...meh... but that Nishikino character. That's all I have to say about that. Although, the oversized sweatshirt was inspired by a Ken Ashcorp song. 

"But Muff, a dakimakura is a double sided pillow. Where's the other (sexier) side?"
It's waiting to happen, along with a strictly higher quality image of this side in the future. I'm actually going to wait until something very special happens before I decide to upload them both. Something...political is in the midst, and I will only keep to the second piece after a certain court ruling goes through and a certain state decides to stop being a giant cunt. Then cause for celebration will be in order I suppose.

Haystack at Sunset by Muffyn-Man
Haystack at Sunset
Probably one of the best photos I could hope to take on my Oregon Vacation, and just in time for my May photo contribution. Yes, I'm a sucker for silhouettes, but in this case I kinda had no choice. That's the issue with camera phones everywhere, but who's trying to pull off stunning high quality photos with phones anyways. 
I only took this photo the day before I upload this, but I wish I had never left Cannon Beach. It made me realize the appeal of just walking along the edge at low tide as the sun melts into the distant horizon. I suggest any and all who may want to visit there to go in early May on the weekdays when there's actual sunlight and less people running around.

Mine-Bar Acoustics
Taken almost a year ago in May with one of my best friends who came up from Arizona to take a trip with me to Lake Tahoe. Had breakfast at a Cafe that was once a Soda Bottling company and Ice House, that was built into the entrance of an early 1800's Mine Shaft. Really cool historic building in Placerville, and with the perfect lighting and circumstances we were in, it felt right to snap what I would hope to be a potential album cover... maybe. 

Taken on camera phone with no alterations or filters. just simple exposure adjustment before shot.

Hey Peeps, Long time no entry.

It's election time again in my country, and HOLY FUCK IS IT A CIRCUS!!!
    I've been alive long enough to see and participate in several presidential elections, and it has never had this much attention. I was too young to vote when Bush Jr. ran for his second term in office, and I'm still significantly pissed that he won his first term against Al Gore. For those following me who right now, Al Gore is the guy who ran the campaign that would later become the famous documentary An Inconvenient Truth. Still don't know? Wiki it. 
Back on topic. Each election year gets its "fair" share of national domestic coverage of the race, usually after the primary candidate elections when each party declares their candidate. It's been a shit storm of media coverage in the country on each major news network, anywhere and everywhere online, and tons of confrontational battles on the streets. If that wasn't fucking crazy enough, I've been discovering for myself countless international responses to the Primary Election. THE FUCKING PRIMARY, BEFORE WE EVEN FIGURE OUT WHO THE FUCK IS GOING TO REPRESENT THE DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN PARTIES! 
    I'm not angry about this, but I am in awe that other countries even give a shit on a social level. There's plenty of good reasoning for this, though I've never experienced this in the (undisclosed age) years that I've experienced this. We all know that for the most part the US Democratic system is kind of a fucking joke as our elected officials have proven in many cases not to even represent us in the Senate and the House. Hell, it's a common quip to insult someone by calling them a politician. "... as crooked as a Politician", was the joke, along with a few more puns down the line. So it wouldn't have been a surprise that most news sources and social outlets outside the US don't acknowledge the candidates until they had become The President. 
    Now I'm hearing of Mexico burning intricate piñatas of Trump exploding, The entire internet exploding over Bernie Sanders, and Cate Blanchett voicing her opinion on Hilary Clinton in the election. There's been further extreme examples of this, particularly influenced by the notion of Trump winning the election. Rumors of Cape Breton accepting American Refugees if Trump is elected, ISIS supposedly seeing a spike in membership via Trump's rhetoric; it's crazy what's going on and I can't seem to pull myself away from wondering if I should move out of the country in the near future. It's gotten so distracting that I can't pull myself back into the swing of fully engrossing myself in my projects, which brings me to my updates. 

    As of the last few months I've been looking for a new job while taking private classes on Comic Book and Storyboard Layouts. It's kinda blown my mind, and is helping me to rethink half the ideas of my current Graphic Novel project, which I will post teasers about as I progress into the later stages of it. I've currently halted my animation project since I've actually been learning a great deal about animation from this as well. On top of that, my partner on the project is just as currently redirected as I am, so no helping that. It will get done since we've been bouncing back and forth with these projects for a while, and have been interrupted by the events around us. Sounds like a cop out I know, but I haven't stopped everything altogether. As my Animation and Comic projects are in the works I will still post work in order to keep myself from getting artist tunnel vision.
    My latest two New Paper Test: Lapis Lazuli- Steven Universe by Muffyn-Man  Undertale- Asriel Dreemurr/Flowey by Muffyn-Man were done using the new paper that I'll be using for the comic, and it interacts with Copics very differently from Bristol Board in a way that I'm still not quite used to. 

Anyways, thanks to those reading this, and all who still follow me or have just started following me.
