Notebook Artworks Moleskine notebooks are a favorite among many artists, designers and writers. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and with many different kinds of paper. The elastic closure and pocket in the back of each one adds to their utility. The popularity of Moleskines among the art community ensures that there are thousands of great examples of Moleskine art out there. Flickr alone has a huge pool of Moleskine artists. One group, Moleskine: One Page at a Time, has nearly 4,000 members and more than 36,000 images in their pool. Vanishing Point: How to disappear in America without a trace Where there's water, life is possible. True, it may be very difficult and very hard to live, depending, but anyone who's driven, hiked, or camped in the American South West will have noticed that cities and ranches crop up where there's surface water or where there's been a well dug. Within the state of California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado, there are deserts, mesas, mountains, and forests where normally people never or rarely visit; not-so-secret places where there's water, access to a road within a day's hike, and where a fairly rugged individual may hide while remaining basically healthy, marginally well fed, and reasonably sane. In this section I'll look at two such environments, neither of which I would recommend, but one of which I'd suggest is a reasonable way to live in basic health while either on the run, hiding out from the law, old girl friends, the draft for an illegal war, putative wives and such. Where exactly?

How to be “Stealth” Homeless “There, but for the grace of God, go I” goes the old canard, usually in reference to a disheveled homeless person, dressed in rags sitting on a street corner begging for change and smelling of b.o. What you are seeing is the result not of homelessness, per se, but dysfunctionality in general, due to substance abuse, mental illness and a host of other contributing factors. You may see homeless people everyday and never suspect them. Conversely, that panhandler on the street corner may not be homeless at all. But, perhaps, you have that fear in the back of your mind that such a fate could happen to you. Maybe you work a crappy job, living from pay check to paycheck “one paycheck away from living on the street” or maybe you remain in an abusive relationship in exchange for the security of a place to live.
All About the Lemon Juice and Maple Syrup Detox The third time i caved in on the lemon juice and maple syrup detox diet I knew i needed help.

Maybe you have a stalker or you would like more privacy, maybe you are avoiding domestic violence or identity theft... whatever the reason is here are a few tips that will help you do just that.

However, you can get a post office box with an old address if you have recently moved and still have a utility bill and one other item with your old address on it.
Tutorial Tuesday: Drawing the Female Figure Tutorial Tuesday is here, and this week we’re going to tackle the Female Figure in comics. The basic tutorials and tips I’m going to discuss here applies to drawing females in your typical American mainstream action-hero style. You’ll notice that females vary greatly from genre to genre – you wouldn’t necessarily use some of the tips in this tutorial to draw females in manga, or if you were doing an Indie style comic where the females are normal in appearance. The women in mainstream comics tend to be hyper-sexualized, over proportioned and exaggerated idealistic forms, much like their beefcake counterparts on the male side. But – what you can take from this is the basic principles of anatomy. For this lesson, I’ve used illustrations from Christopher Hart as a visual aid to explain my points.
