Camaskassi as a Warrior 

FancyJ: “Hello Camaskassi it is such a pleasure for me to feature you. Could you tell me a little bit about the mystery behind Camaskassi?”

Camaskassi: “Thank you, I chose the name CAMASKASSI mixing MASK in the middle meaning almost covered. I have always enjoyed superheroes, villains, and wrestlers because they hide their identity making the mystery of their character exciting. If superheroes took their masks it would just lose the curiosity and magic. Since I can’t be a superhero, I decided to become an artist that creates superheroes for everyone who wants to remain mysterious including myself.”

FancyJ: “I noticed you chose a warrior for your personal insane portrait. Can you tell me why you didn’t choose a superhero?”

Camaskassi: “I feel like superheroes are more imaginary than realistic. Not that I have anything against superheroes, they are awesome and I happened to be a huge fan of Marvel Comics, DreamWorks, and several Anime films. I just think of myself as a fighter with honor, humility, and strength. I wanted to portray that into my choice of character.”

FancyJ: “You have an artistic name, but what is your slogan?”

Camaskassi: “Disguise yourself in a world of masquerades.”

FancyJ: “I like that, it makes a lot of sense. What inspired you to start making these fantasy style photo transformations?”

Camaskassi: “I actually made a portrait for a family member first because they wanted to hide their identity, then I realized that quite a lot of people feel that way especially with all those egg accounts on twitter. So, I started making artistic portraits thinking about how many people have boring plain looking profile photos, or just not using their photo at all!”

FancyJ: “Yes, that is quite true! Did you think that it would become as popular as it got to be?”
Camaskassi: “No, I never thought it would go this far at all! I liked creating insane portraits for random people, then one day… BANG!”

FancyJ: “So, when you say: “Bang”, does this mean you are receiving a lot of interest?

Camaskassi: “Incredibly yes, I couldn’t believe the response I got it was mind blowing, now I barely have time for myself, lol! On average I receive anywhere from 10-15 portrait requests a week, right now I am a bit behind with 50+ needing to be done in less than a month. It is literally insane, like my portraits.

FancyJ: “What do people generally send you when they order?”

Camaskassi: “Actually people usually will send me a portrait and a googled photo saying they want to be this. That is the norm.”

FancyJ: “What is the funniest or weirdest request you have received?”

Camaskassi: “Actually there was a man that requested to be a mustache monkey, that cracked me up a bit!”

FancyJ: “What kind of requests do you regularly get?”

Camaskassi: “Things I think I can’t possibly do, then I try to do it and it doesn’t come out too bad! Honestly, people request some pretty crazy stuff. I rarely get any orders that are normal, but I guess that is why it is called insane portraits! I have had requests that I wonder what they are thinking at times, such as a flamingo, a hello kitty doll, a scarecrow gangster, a viking, a checkerboard, Barbosa from Pirates of the Caribbean, Root from Guardians of the Galaxy, and a request from a pet owner that was a little weird, but turned out pretty good!”

Root  
FancyJ: “When you said checkerboard I was trying to imagine that for a second. Those are a bit on the wild side! What are some requests that you basically would say, NOT GOING TO HAPPEN?!”

Camaskassi: “Probably a full nude photo, lots of blood/gore, or a huge group photo. Yes, that just wouldn’t be possible!”

FancyJ: “Has anyone of your customers requested too much?”

Camaskassi: “Yes, actually someone recently requested 6 insane portraits at once. I take customers as first come first serve, so it can get busy quickly for me. Overall people are pretty good about not asking for too many over the top details.

Wolverine

FancyJ: “Whoa, nice Wolverine! Do you find it hard to keep up, being that you are a one man show so to speak?”
Camaskassi: “At times I feel a bit overwhelmed, but when I finally see the finished portrait I feel better about it. It feels great when I get positive feed back as well, it keeps me pumped and willing to go further!”

FancyJ: “Have you had to deal with any critics?”

Camaskassi: “I think my worse critic is myself, I seek perfection, I can’t go further until I am happy with my portraits. I hope I never have to deal with criticism, but I guess I would try to see the view from another perspective.”

FancyJ: “If someone wants to transform their photo into something mysterious, how do they go about requesting one, and what are the costs involved?”

Camaskassi: “Anyone can send an order request to my direct email or to my manager, who receives payment on my behalf. Due to my busy schedule it has been hard to keep track. I require a clear photograph, no cut off body parts, not too close, and never blurry or pixelated. I generally charge $25. and up through PayPal, depends on details and if they request a full background. The biggest request is to be patient, it takes 10-15 days for me to work on just one, especially a skin portrait.”

Spiderman Skins

  
FancyJ: “Can you break down the categories for everyone? What is a skin exactly?”

Camaskassi:” Sure, I get that question a lot. Basically there are categories to make it easy for people to order a portrait. Skins are normally wild animals, reptiles, and sea creatures. You can also choose a skin of a favorite character and Jewels as well. When I skin a portrait I keep the person visible while adding fur, lines, scales, and other details. They still look like themselves, but also look like whatever character they chose to be…
(Here is a before and after to show what Camaskassi is referring to!)

Joker Skin

Heavy Skin Leopard and Light Skin Tiger  

…I create light and heavy skins, the lighter one’s are to allow more of the person to be seen, the heavier one’s are to hide the person as much as possible, but still keeping the shape of their face, their eyes, and their mouth. Skin reptiles and tigers are the most requested portraits, but I have had a surprising amount of people asking for Pop Art and Rainbow Electricity DJ portraits.”

(Here are some examples of the portraits Camaskassi mentioned above.)

Pop Art  

Rainbow DJ Electricity

FancyJ: “Wow, that is amazing, it must be extremely tedious work! I admire your dedication it probably isn’t as easy as it looks.”

Camaskassi: “Thank you, it can be hard at times, as well as time consuming, but the final result is worth every moment.”

FancyJ:” Is there anyone out there maybe a fan or customer you would like to shout out or thank before I let you go?”

Camaskassi: “There are a few people I would like to mention who have greatly supported me from the beginning. The first person would be KYNGSOLO, who I stole her portrait from and she seemed to forgive me. Lol! She was my first portrait and it inspired me to take a leap. Donjo who I designed a name logo, and spiderman for has been a great support. Jennie who has supported me on all my social sites and continues to show a lot of kindness. David aka PU is probably the craziest person out there, he shares my portraits everywhere and as I am working the notifications basically sound like a non stop ringer, thank you man. Big Thanks to the most supportive beautiful lady FancyJ London who has helped me believe in my potential and has done a great job a my manager, I highly recommend her. Lastly to my many fans that have made my head swell up pretty big, you guys are great!”-Camaskassi

FancyJ: “I am blushing over here, thank you! I decided to back you, because what you artistically create needs to be noticed. It is a way for so many to break free from their shells, while being whoever they have always dreamed of being. It is unique, fun, and most of all mysterious. I am honored to be part of your journey.”

Featured Artist *DONJO

FancyJLondon ©2015 (All Right Reserved) This blog post is a Bio Feature representing the musician Donjo. 
  

“DONJO” An Australian musician, full of musical talent and born with a great personality. His music is ever changing from the soothing melodies of “One Last Chance”, to latin mixed romantic rhythms like “Mama Mia.” When I first took a listen to his music via Reverbnation, his deep soothing voice reminded me of the late Roy Orbison and his Instruments and Guitar playing hinted towards the sounds of Santana. 

DONJO surprised me with his unique blend of sounds and creative romantic story filled lyrics, that draw you in like a fish hook making you listen all the way to the end. 

It is my extreme pleasure to introduce you to Tony Krajina AKA DONJO…  

FancyJ: “Hello Donjo, this is exciting finally getting to talk with you, can you first tell me about your unique artist’s chosen name?”
Donjo: “This is great, I thank you for this opportunity. Well the name “DONJO” means; “tall tower” apparently, well that is what a friend of mine said it means “Give me the money” in the language of Korean. Actually the name was given to me at the young age of 4 and has stuck with me ever since.”
FancyJ: “I did a little investigating there myself, I found out that your artist name in Korean means; “Huge Castle” your friend might have been teasing you. Never the less, it is an interesting name. Maybe you’re part of royalty? So can you share with us a little bit about yourself?”
  
Donjo: “Lol, maybe! I don’t know where to start talking about one’s self, but I guess I can say, I am 6ft 4 and have been told I’m like a giant teddy bear! My nationality is Italian and I was raised in Australia. I enjoyed writing music at an early age and have continued to do so up to today. I play guitar and other instruments, as well as sing. I have also joined up with a Cousin of mine, we play Italian folk music. We both auditioned together for “Australia’s Got Talent” and Recorded our first debut single titled “Ritorna Qui.”
  

FancyJ: “Wow, you hide a lot within that tall bear body! That is amazing, you and your cousin seem like quite the pair. Would you share your genre preferences?” 

Donjo: “Lol, we are. I havent got a favourite genre of music, I tend to play anything from Mario Lanza to Metallica.” (Links are below, just incase you haven’t heard of the artists Donjo mentioned above) (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mario_Lanza) (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metallica

FancyJ: “That is quite a wide range in your choices of genres, you could say your pretty flexible. Tell me Donjo, how does music make you feel?”
Donjo: “Music speaks to all, no matter what part of the world we live in. We are amongst an inhabitance of billions of people, who all speak different languages. The one language we all seem understand is music. If you can write a song that touches the heart and soul of just one person, I believe that you have the ability to send a much needed message to someone, somewhere that will change their life in a positive way. 
FancyJ: “I definitely agree with you on that! Music also plays a big role on our emotions, that is why most movies, commercials, and theater use music to intensify the story line. Making us blubber like babies.” 
Donjo: “Lol, yes that is true! 
FancyJ: “So, speaking of emotions, what inspires you to write a new song or record new music?” 
Donjo: “Well that is easy for me, because, I just love music and every time I go to the studio, my body feels goosebumps all over with just the anticipation and excitement of it! To keep me going strong, I fuel myself with heaps of coffee, water as well.”
  

FancyJ: “That sounds like me! Donjo, can you tell me about your music and your goals for the future?”
Donjo: “Sure, I know not every one would find my music style there cup of tea, but I enjoy writing, recording, and producing it. I think that every talented artist out there has a big dream behind their music. My dream is to be able to produce a song for a Motion Picture, that would be a dream come true. Some of my titles, Such as “Until the End” my personal favorite was recorded back in 1999. Then I went on to write “Elizabeth” following shortly after I wrote the “Maze” in 2014. Over the years I have written from my heart, about my life, and my emotions in hope that maybe someone out there may understand my inner thoughts, that I pour into my all my music. Here is a little something I wrote to explain.” 
“Every note is a breath 

  Every Chord is a Word 

  Every Chorus is a Day 

  Every song is a Year 

  Every album is… 

  Someone’s story to tell.” -Donjo

FancyJ: “You are getting me emotional over here, that is beautiful. I really enjoyed our chat and hope we continue to make changes in the hearts of many throughout the world together. Would you like to send out a few, Thank you’s?”

Donjo: “Yes, that would be awesome! First of all, I cannot Thank You enough FancyJ London for all you are doing to support me and my music, you have made my dreams come true. Thank You very much to “ALL” musicians, singer/songwriters, composers, artists, and many more out there. Thanks to my family, friends! Thank You all for taking the time to read this and for just being you! 
FancyJ: “Thank you Donjo! Know that I will be here to support anyway I can. Who knows we might be able to collaborate on something in the future. Welcome to the featured stars family.

Featured Artist *Maciej Smoreda*

FancyJLondon ©2015 All Rights Reserved This blog post is a bio feature representing rapper, singer/songwriter Maciej Smoreda 
  
FancyJ: “Hello Maciej; could you first before anything else tell me how to pronounce your name?” 

Maciej: “Sure, my name is pronounced Ma-Che. It means gift from God. 

FancyJ: “Your name is quite unique, what nationality did your name originate from?” 

Maciej: “I was born in lodz, Poland, it is a Polish name.” 

FancyJ: “That is impressive you are not American, yet your English is good?”

Maciej: “At the young age of 13, I moved from Poland to upper state NewYork not knowing any English at all, though I am proud to say I was able to pick it up quickly.”

FancyJ: “I must say I am not only intrigued by your name and your heritage, but also the video I saw of you hitting hard subjects like 9/11 with inspiring messages. Could you tell me what or whom inspired you to rap about such hard subjects, like 9/11.”

Maciej: “The 9/11 poem I wrote shortly after it happened. I was attending high school in NewYork. It was the first artistic positive message I ever wrote, at that time my hiphop was much different, mainly focusing on freestyle battling and murder rap in those days. Actually it became a huge turning point for me because I realized I could inspire people with my music.

  
FancyJ: “Did anyone close to you inspire you to get into music?”

Maciej: “Yes, in fact I owe it to a close friend of mine Michael Williams who does not rap, but writes poetry, I heard his 9/11 poem and was inspired to write my own version with my views. To this day I like his poem far more, and he likes mine far better…LOl! Since then he became a firefighter as well as partaking in multiple trips to Iraq and Afghanistan. I admire and respect him greatly. 

FancyJ: “Wow, he sounds like an amazing person, you know what they say here in our country; “You are the company you keep.” You know how to pick friends, that is a great quality to have.” Ok, If you could pick a famous artist you have great respect for, who would it be and why? 

Maciej: “Thank you for your compliments, as far as your question, It is hard to pick just one. I have always been a huge fan of Tupac and all the revolutionary talk at the end of his career same goes for Michael Jackson. That was an idol of mine since I was 5 years old. More recent artists that I have huge respect for are Hopsin, Logic, and McLemore. All very smart individuals, Independent thinkers and just aurora filled exuberant people. I can’t forget to mention Jim Morrison, that man was so ahead of his time he basically predicted “EDM” music in the 60’s, Hats off to Jim!”

FancyJ: “You really know your music, I agree those are some unforgettable people that taught us so much. So, tell me how did you choose your style of music? 

Maciej: “Guess it chose me when I was watching power rangers, Lol!” I love most music, though I can not sing to save my life or play any instruments, but I enjoy writing and expressing my thoughts in a way that makes people think more and hip hop was the perfect way for me to be able to do that.” 

  
FancyJ: “I have to say the Power Rangers comment took me by surprise? What did you mean by that?” ( For those of you reading who have no clue as to what we are talking about here is a link to explain: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Rangers )

Maciej: “Lol, I fell in love with hip hop at the age of 7 by watching The Power Rangers Show. The Black Power Ranger “STATIC” often broke out breakdancing, I thought to myself now that is hip hop!”

FancyJ: “So, at what age did you think you become enamored with music?”

Maciej: “I would say I have been interested in music, since I was a baby. Both my grandmothers sang in church choirs and in opera. I was quite fascinated with the passion in there voice and the feedback they would receive.

FancyJ: “It is amazing how influential music can be for all ages. Have you ever taken up lessons for an instrument?”

Maciej: “Yes, music is powerful. I actually took a lesson for one day on guitar and gave up. Tried again years later and only learned the basics of smoke on the water.” 

FancyJ: “I think we all fall victim to that, I too took classes on clarinet in school…hated it! 

Maciej: “Lol!”

FancyJ: “Can you tell me what you hope to accomplish by spreading your message filled lyrics? Do you believe that music has the power to change the way people think or feel in a positive way?” 

Maciej: “I just want to inspire people. It blows my mind that I already have inspired people in places I never been and around the world. It blows my mind.”I believe music is one of the most influential forms of art, ever. No matter what mood you are in, hearing a song with lyrics full of imagery and emotion can put you in whatever place the artists mind was in when they were writing it. It is the best form of story telling in my personal opinion. If you’re having a bad day and you put on a record like Tupac’s, it changes you automatically you instantly feel the positive vibration through your body, making you desire accomplishing something great.”

FancyJ: “I have to say I couldn’t agree more. I am sure we all have that specific singer or special album we enjoy, that pumps us up or motivates us.” 

  
Maciej: “I am happy you agree, yes it would be a dull world without music.” 

FancyJ: “Speaking of that, your lyrics are not even close to dull! Where do you draw your inspirational lyrics from?”

Maciej: “I draw my lyrics from personal experiences, as well as those close to me. One example is a song I created with Supa Russ, titled: ANSWERS. This song was one of the toughest and most emotional songs I have ever done, being that it was dedicated to our best friend that unexpectedly passed away earlier this year due to a heart attack at the young age of 26. Other songs I have written to show my point of view of world influences for myself and others that are relatable. Like the song titled: NICOTINE. I’ve been battling with nicotine addiction for over ten years, so that became my positive outlet in a negative struggle.”

FancyJ: “That is very inspiring for so many who have lost loved one’s and for those who battle addictions of all types.” I think your outlet is commendable!” 

Maciej: “I have been lucky in terrible situations, so for me this goes a lot deeper.”

FancyJ: “Yes indeed you have from what you told me privately, care to share any of them?” 

Maciej: “I was kicked out of high school, got in trouble, hustled a bit decided to put music on hold for while, then worked many different jobs from Walmart, Holister to running my own tree removal business. Finally up and moved to Florida in late 2011, I decided to buy an old graffiti’d school bus to move my things. My good friend and I drove it down with all my belongings and my pet snakes. The very first month in Florida, I was hit by a car going 65 mph. To my shock I didn’t have one broken bone and I was released from the hospital the next morning! I then moved my beautiful fiancé from NewYork to join me. I started to get serious about hip hop late last year when I had the pleasure of meeting BZK JOE (my producer/ also the top holding 3rd place breakdancer of Florida) we formed Affiliate’s and started making music!”

  
FancyJ: “You have quite an amazing story, and I am almost positive that people can relate to you. We all have a story and I am happy to share those stories with my readers. Who would you like to thank out there, for where you are today?”

Maciej: “I would like to thank my family, friends and my fiancé. Most of all my partner/producer BZK Joe who is my other half of affiliates. He pushes me all the time, couldn’t do it without him. Also, my fans from all over the world and people such as yourself FancyJ London for taking interest in my work.

FancyJ: “Thank you Maciej, it has been a pleasure getting to know you, but not wanting to get to know those snakes!” Lol!” So tell me, If you became the next rap icon, what would you do with your fame?”

Maciej: “I take it you are not a snake fan, Lol!” Well, If I became a rap icon I would build some community studios for kids to be able to make music where the resources are not available. If we can influence the youth in a positive way we can alter the future.” 

FancyJ: “That sounds great, you should start a campaign on Kickstarter for that! I guarantee you would reach the masses. Ok, last question, what do you think are your music life goals?” 

Maciej: “Music life goal is to make people think more. Respond not react. I think my lyrics convey that message. I want to show that anything is possible, if I couldn’t speak English at 13 years old then I can come up with complex lyrics, anyone can do it!” 

  FancyJ: “You are right about that, you can do just about anything if you put your mind, heart, and soul into it! 

 I am going to leave you with the video that inspired me to feature Maciej and want to say that my featured artists are all talented, but each have an incredible story. Everyone should be valued and appreciated from all four corners of the earth whether your famous or not! ~FancyJ London
9/11 poetry- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-TgipjOLCg

“Sonar” is one of my favorite songs that Maciej sang, make sure you listen to those lyrics!

Featured Artist~ JANANI

 FancyJLondon ©2015 All Rights Reserved
This blog post is a bio feature representing the Alternative Rock Band JANANI  
 JANANI is an alternative rock band from Orlando, Florida. The band was formed by Janani Vaidyanathan and Erick Campos in January of 2011. In early 2014, JANANI released their very first extended play titled, Three Step System EP. The Three Step System EP was produced by Brett Hestla, former member of Creed. 

  
  The EP spawned moderate success for the band, most notably with their hit single, “Where Was I?”. Kat Coffin of Examiner.com wrote, “Songs don’t get much catchier than ‘Where Was I.’ JANANI’s spunky vocals are full of attitude as they cascade over a steady walking blues rhythm…” and “[Janani’s] strong voice takes lyrical delivery beyond heartfelt to a more character driven place conveying toughness, anger, bitterness, passion and a host of other feelings…”. 

  JANANI released their hit single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), in May of 2015. Shortly after it’s release, the single won the Akademia Award for Best Alternative Rock song. ExposedVocals.com wrote, “[Run (Pick Up The Gun)’s] killer chorus latches itself in your memory after the first listen. It’s a well-crafted song that acts as a wonderful homage to the classic rock sound but also just a good piece of songwriting in itself.” 

  
Their music has been heard on radio stations such as CKCU 93.1 FM in Ottawa, Canada, KISS 104.7 FM and Orlando’s own XL 106.7 FM. It has also been featured in DIRECTTV’s documentary, Gone Until December. JANANI’s latest single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), will be the theme song of the upcoming television series, Hit Women.

     

  From over two-hundred competing bands, JANANI was selected to compete in the top 8 for the Hard Rock Rising Orlando competition, where they performed in front of a panel of judges including Chris Kirkpatrick of NSYNC. Of over 70 acts in the Tampa Bay Acoustic Music Festival at the Hard Rock Cafe Tampa, JANANI walked away as one of five bands selected to be a Hard Rock Energy Ambassador.

  
  JANANI is currently number 1 on ReverbNation Alternative Orlando charts and collectively has over 36,000 fans spanning over 5 different social networks.

  
SHOUTOUT Straight from JANANI ~ Sending big love ❤️ to our Manager Ranelle Golden, all our fans, and of course FancyJ London, YOU ROCK!
Thank you, JANANI …..OH, by the way I am a major fan myself! ~FancyJ

Quarry’s Edge

Image


The view is beautiful as I stand on the edge


Looking straight not at the plunge of death


Blind I proceed into what I think is love


Not realizing I can’t take flight, like a small dove


His professions of love make me believe


As I plummet towards the rocks with my mistaken steps


He looks at me without emotion, as I fall into a forever black potion


For his love was never a notion.

Hit ME

Hit Me

You can’t hurt me now

You stand there yelling,

your proud head starts swelling

Deep piercing words shoot out of your mouth,

like bullets ricocheting off a high mount

Red faced, steaming like a lobster,

you grit your teeth and growl like a monster

Go ahead, Go ahead, Hit Me…….Go Ahead Hit Me

Set it off quickly…..

Pound it out of my chest,

do me a favor, pull out the rest

My bleeding heart has torn half my breast, has torn half my breast

no transfusion can save me now,

just stab me, get it over with somehow, somehow

You stand there yelling,

showing no care at all, my heart beats ever so slow, slow

I just can’t bare.

You beat on my head, pull on my hair,

you punch high and low with no care,

break my ribs with no fear,

nearly killing me just evil stares, evil stares

Go ahead, Go ahead,

H I T M E…….

Pound it out of my chest

Do me a favor, pull out the rest

My bleeding heart has torn half my breast, has torn half my breast

no transfusion can save me now,

just stab me, and get it over with somehow, somehow

Please Go…..d,

Please God, Just take me now……now, now, now…

Paper

PAPER

You pull me out,

I feel bright and clean,

there is nothing that could, could damage me.

Then you carefully, set me down,

as not to tear me or rip my heart out,

You guard me carefully in a folder, marked LOVE.

As if I knew you would, care for me like you should, holding me in safeness,

I should’ve have known it was to good….

I should have known it was to good….

Coughing up the dust

I can’t seem to lift myself up.

The weight it holds me down,

and you, you are no where to be found.

As if I knew you would, care for me like you should, holding me in safeness,

I should’ve have known it was to good….

Then one day,

you came for me,

you opened me up and dusted me off

 you scratch me with black words

you tore my soul,

you crumpled me up,

like an old newspaper.

Image 

As if I knew you would,

care for me like you should,

and hold me in safeness,

I should’ve have known,

I should’ve known,

 it was to good,      

it was to GOOD……to be.

With U underneath my feet

With U
Underneath
my Feet…..

Written by: FancyJ London ©2013

Stumbling along I go, searching for unrocky roads.
Beauty within my soul, somehow lost its glow.
Stomach of death and butterflies frosted cold.
Memories glazed with arsenic, pitiful stories of woe.

I can’t go any further with U underneath my feet.
I can’t shout any louder with your hand stopping my speech.
I can’t see when your evil darkness is sucking the light out of me …….
Out of me…..

Like a trooper,
I carry on.
My wounds are infected,
I’m nearly gone.
Fought a battle,
only an army could’ve won.
I raise my head to the sky and ask why.
Why, why… WHY!!!!!

I can’t go any further with U underneath my feet.
I can’t shout any louder with your hand stopping my speech.
I can’t see when your evil darkness is sucking the light out of me….
Out of me….
Out of………
