Mojizu

Misfortune is often the spouse of an artist, or at least, his/her life sentence (to some people they mean the same thing anyway). The starving artist, the hungry artist, the misunderstood artist, the antisocial artist, the nerdy artist, the freaky artist, and so on. Artists can become isolated for long hours, months, and years—so that he/she can focus on finally finishing the masterpiece.

So how does a social-networking site for artists sound? Not too bad actually; art communities have long been around. How does a “contemporary character design community” — in beta, no less! — sound? Wonderful. So 2.0. Mojizu doesn’t seem to be cashing in on the buzzwords though (‘cept for the beta).

Sure, you can churn out all the artworks you’ve got and put them display on DA. But what about being a little somebody-else in those moments you’re sketching that misunderstood critter with dreams of world domination? Drawing up new figures and imagining suitable personalities for them certainly make the tendencies of split-personality disorders and other mental illnesses associated with art a no-brainer.

But then, it just might be the answer.

    … reminds me of “Shih Tzuh.” :)

    “Artists can become isolated for long hours, months, and years—so that he/she can focus on finally finishing the masterpiece.”

    An artist’s masterpiece is never finished. It evolves.

    World domination? Everyone’s dream.
