Disney’s Comic Strip Artist’s Kit by Carson van Osten.
You might know these already, but it is such good stuff I don’t think anybody minds if I share it here again. These hand-outs were meant as a way to get beginning artists working on the Disney comics to overcome some recurring drawing problems.
I found this on Mark Kennedy’s awesome blog: Temple of the Seven Golden Camels. Hence the ‘To Mark’ dedication on the fist page which, I guess, features some pretty sound advice for any artist:
"Just keep drawing my friend… Draw like the wind!”
Anti-Gay Activist Lisa Biron Found Guilty of Child Pornography After Video Taping Daughter
Lisa Biron, a New Hampshire lawyer who worked with an anti-gay Christian-right organization, has been found guilty of child pornography after she videotaped her own daughter having sex with two men on several occasions.
According to Salon, Biron, 43, is facing a minimum sentence of 25 years after she was convicted by a jury on Thursday. It took the jury less than an hour to deliberate.
In November, Biron was arrested by the FBI and accused of eight felony counts after she videotaped a 14-year-old girl having sex with men. Later, the girl was identified as Biron’s daughter.
On Biron’s Facebook page, she claims the Bible is her favorite book and that she worked for Alliance Defending Freedom.
Alliance Defending Freedom is a “servant ministry” seeking to transform the legal system “for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family.”
The group is blatantly anti-gay, and issues “dire warnings” about “the homosexual agenda,” particularly in their book, authored by president Alan Sears an senior director Craig Osten.
In the book, they explain that the “homosexual agenda” will destroy religious liberty and free speech. One chapter claims that pedophilia on college campuses is a result of homosexuality, and that homosexuality and pedophilia are linked.
As Biron’s case broke out and she was arrested, ADF removed all traces of her from their website and Facebook page. They even clamed in a “CBS News” report that Biron never worked for them.
According to an LGBT blog called Joe.My.God, ADF is continuing to remove her name from their site and Facebook, and is deleting any mention of her name by users on their page.
While it is true that Biron might not have been a formal employee of ADF, she did participate and was a member in their “Honor Corps,” according to John Aravosis at Americablog.
The Honor Corps is a group that recognizes allied attorneys who participate in 450 hours of pro bono services for the group. Those who become members receive ADF perks, like referrals, job opportunities, and access to resume postings.
In March of 2011, she was listed by the ADF as an “Allied Attorney Success Story.”
Last week I made a visit to P!ay Hair Lounge for a transformation by the multi-talented, wickedly inspiring Brig Van Osten. Check out more images from my first shoot as a “Baby Blonde” and the crazy before-and-after photos HERE!
