    Sorry that its been nearly a week since the last time I posted anything or responded to any of your comments (those comments I care to respond to that is), but recently my attention has been focused on managing my off-DA accounts. I have mentioned it before, though I really have not elaborated on it nor made the subject more vocal, but I actually have a couple of online shops beyond DA. The shops are on Zazzle and Artflakes.com. Zazzle is an internet site where you can customize your own merchandise for sale and profit and Artflakes is an online art shop which caters exclusively to art-related products like posters, canvases, and gallery-quality framing. I have two shops on Zazzle which host a variety of my best artwork. One shop, Salim's Political Shop sells merchandise customized with my political art, and the other shop, Oneiroian Fantasy sells merchandise decorated with conceptual artwork related to my core cartoon series, The Toon 5some. I also have a gallery on Artflakes where the best of my political and non-political work are available as gallery-style art pieces and posters.
    Now I'm not expecting to earn a ton of cash selling my artwork through these sites, but a little chump change on the side is never a bad thing, and besides I am an artist and this is what I do for a living so I've got find some way to put bread on the table. So even if you aren't going to buy anything I'd appreciate if you'd have a look at my shops and at least spread the word around on Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter so I get a little exposure and maybe get a sale or two from someone somewhere. It would also help get my name out there so perhaps my core cartoon series starts to build up more of a fanbase. Also any constructive criticism is more than welcome. If you have any ideas on how I can make my shops or products better or more desirable please feel free to send me a message, or if you have any special requests for items you want to see in my shops please let me know.

    On a completely separate note, I've also begun uploading the rough drafts of two books I've been writing on my other account, :icontheunisonreturns:. The two books are called The Mystery of Magma Mountain and The Soldier and the Prince. The first book is a novel I've actually been working on for the past decade (only recently got the inspiration to start working on it again). It follows the titular characters of my original series, The Toon 5some as they embark on a fantastic otherworldly escapade fraught with danger, magic, and mystery. The second book is a novel I recently felt inspired to start work on. It's a fairytale love story about a young gay soldier and an extraordinary bisexual prince from a phantasmal realm of enchantment. My intention is for the book to grow to be a cherished fantasy love story embodying the beauty of homosexual love for a new generation of open-minded young people. You can read more about the intention and inspiration behind this story here...theunisonreturns.deviantart.co… and you can read the rough drafts of both stories by following this link to the gallery of my other account...theunisonreturns.deviantart.co… Constructive criticism is always welcome. :)

And lastly, if you're interested in keeping up with my shops, novels, and all my off-DA work feel free to follow me on Twitter. Whenever I add products to my shops or have special announcements I want my followers to know about I will post it to Twitter. Just don't expect me to be all too active on it though as I'm still a little ignorant on how to really use the damn thing, and usually have my hands full with comments I get both here on DA and on freakin' Youtube. My Twitter username is the same that it is here, IAmTheUnison. Add me...or don't. Whatever. =D

Here's the links to my shops on Zazzle and Artflakes...

P.S. I'm also making some of my art pieces available as prints here on DA as well, although it will mostly just be coffee mugs since the cropping system for DA is terrible and cuts off too much of the images. On that note I feel I should point that Zazzle allows you to choose between a variety of different colors, styles, and sizes for various products, but for the posters I have created for my shops its best to leave them at their current size ratios because if you choose a size any higher than their current size it crops the image badly and if you make them smaller you get white spaces. I also should issue a slight warning about Artflakes too. Their system crops the image also when transfering them to posters and canvases, but its no where near as bad as DA's system.

You try to knock me down, but I rise again. Like a phoenix from the ashes always shall I rise. Try to slay me a thousand ways: beat me, shoot me, stab me, blow me up...still do I persevere. I am the might of the flaming sun. I am a million demons from Hell. I am the Prince of Light and Darkness. I know no fear. I yield to no man. I have sworn before the altar of the divine to stand against all forms of tyranny; no matter how mighty they may fancy themselves to be. I am the Spirit of Anarchy here to destroy the tyrants' rein and dispel ignorance and stupidity with boundless knowledge, wisdom, and infallible logic. I am Anarchy's child. Expect me. ^^

Well I'd say its time I abort my Watch for this account, I'm clearly not contributing anything helpful. And I can't help but feel annoyed at works that are nothing but typed words and links. Feels rather unproductive to a site that's named DeviantART.

Oh I know, its all about the message to contribute to your epic vision of Civil Disobediance-Revolution whatevers. I really do hope your vast flaming tornado of idealsim finds satisfaction, buddy.

Well, that is rather unfortunate, but nevertheless I understand. Ever since this account was hacked it has become solely dedicated to geopolitical issues, and if that is not to your liking then it is perhaps for the best that you cease to watch this gallery.

Though I should note in passing that ART is not simply mere fanciful expression through ink and paint, computer-imagery, and what-not. It is a means of communicating ideas and transferring information through a mixture of visual, auditory, and literary mediums, and art has always played a big part in social, global, and political affairs, so with that in mind, my work is more than suited for this site dedicated to artistic expression.

I also hope my tenacity has not left any bitterness between us. My manner is shrill, but it is how I am, and to myself must I remain true.

This is just my opinion, but I think you're losing your touch a bit.

I think your content's homogenizing with itself, almost as if you're running out of ideas.

I wouldn't say that. I still have more dynamic pieces in the works, but it takes time to put together such more elaborate works.
