Desolate but Slightly Scenic by EpicGuitar

It's a lovely piece and certainly captures the feel of the era. Good job on creating a limited palate that gives an impression of somet...

A Scandal in Belgravia - Mucha Style by AlessiaPelonzi

So, are we allowed to use the phrase "homoerotic" in this critique? ;) Yes, I'm aware you're female, and this is an excellent piece. You...

1932 Speed Week Poster by duraluminwolf

Not sure I'm qualified to give an in-depth critique of this piece. It's quite well done and has an air of authenticity to it. If I hadn...

I seem to have picked up a few followers from my writings about the new logo unveiling and lack of desired features on DA.

Would people like to see more writing from me and on what subjects -- on journalism, on non-fiction writing, or more non-fiction writing?

Also, feel free to follow me at and on Twitter at @jamesdwolfjr

And you have two more chances to hear me on air at WVLP 98.3 FM or on Wednesday, Dec. 10, we're having our goodbye show from 10 p.m. CST to midnight (Chicago time, folks) and our last holiday show/last show Dec. 17 at the same time -- songs like "Three Little Dwarves (Hardrock, Coco and Joe) and Tom Waits's "Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis" and Waits and Peter Murphy (of Bauhaus) with "Xmas Sucks."

(Granted, there are also the repeat shows on the following Sundays from 10 p.m. - midnight).

More on the show at

Sorry we're ending the show, but all three of the hosts are weary.

I see they've changed the bio part of this so it's no longer a Q&A form. That might be better.

I'm a journalist in the Northwest Indiana suburbs of Chicago and a one-time cartoonist. I'm trying to finish a book. On Wednesdays from 10 p.m. to midnight (Central Time), I do a radio show for WVLP, 98.3 fm or (tune in, please). I also do publicity for them at times.

My art tends to be influenced by cartooning, art nouveau, art deco, old rock posters and general storybook and ad illustration.

These questions I'm keeping:
Shell of choice: conch
Wallpaper of choice: the opening credits/logo from Garfield Goose & Friends (for Chicagoans older than 30)
Favourite cartoon character: Porkypine from _Pogo_
Personal Quote: Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a function. -- Garrison Keillor

p.s.: I tend not to give llamas for the sake of giving llamas, so if you're in the habit of passing them out expecting reciprocation, I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed.

Check out the logo at this site -- looks familiar, doesn't it?
TGOM Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014
I've seen it since it's all over the place. In this site the weird "Z" actually makes sense. I don't know if other people can read what the site say (because I can since it's my native language :D) but the site says it's a Russian design studio which was made in 2004. It's really weird why they called it "platzkart" tho, because that word means a type of seats in long-distance trains...

Well, as you know Russian, perhaps you should contact the firm about their logo being purloined. I think they might want to know.
