I should mention I’ll be handing out golden stars to everyone who finds me at SDCC.  I haven’t decided what the prize should be if you find me all 4-5 days haha 

re-dying my hair purple right now! I’ll take a selfie and say where I’ll be every morning haha 

I’m thinking the prize will be a free color commission for the person who finds me every day, and if its more than one then I’ll let my lil bro pick a name out of a hat :3 

as for everyone who won’t be there, I probably won’t post much but if I do it will be either 1) the art I draw in line or 2) tagged a million ways to sunday so you can savior them, all SDCC posts will be tagged SDCC

Hi Flatbear! I am making myself a sort of "inspiration journal", full of quotes and pictures and the like, and I was wondering if it was okay for me to use some of your art in it (specifically the Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman "bitches get shit done" picture)? It is primarily a personal thing, but I may be posting some pictures of the finished product online, so I didn't want to use your art without asking. Thank you in advance for your reply! :)

That’s totally fine! Just leave my signature on the picture and if you have an About or Info page, just stick a little credit in there :) Thank you for asking!

Bucky’s grin is a bit uncanny, but I never promised amazing likenesses for these.  We went the fashion route for these three, and I didn’t have too much focus on making them terribly character appropriate - I just wanted them to look goooood.

For your curious followers it's Maori language week in NZ right now and there's lots of Word of the Day stuff going around Twitter.


Oh that’s awesome, thank you so much! The shit I miss when I leave home :(

You have an odd accent. It sounds like a mix of NZ-American? Or just a sort of flat American. As a kiwi it threw me a bit o.O did you move overseas somewhere or...?

Anonymous

NZ-American! I moved from the Kapiti Coast to North Carolina almost nine years ago :) It’s faded HARD, especially in the last few years. I usually talk with someone for five minutes or so before they go WOAH WAIT WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU FROM.

Maori pronunciation! Here are a few words that I hope will help you guys understand what I am trying to say, unfortunately writing it out is never quite as good as hearing the real thing!

Wow, my accent has changed o.O

  #nicki talks maori stuff  
ooooooooh. So in Maori, the r is treated like a r/l sound, same as in Japanese?


More like a d, with a purr. There is no L in te reo Maori, so there’s really no need for the sound. I’m about to put up a voice recording which I think might help understand :)

Flatbear, what is the proper pronunciation of Maori?

Oh this is a tricky one! The easiest way I can write it, phonetically, is mou-ree. it should rime with faux. Roll the r HARD. So that it almost sounds like a d. Mou-dee. If you’re not raised with the specific sounds (like nga), they can be hard to pick up.

Don’t say mao-ree. The mo or mou sound important. That’s where you have to hit it. When I hear someone say mao-ree it makes my skin crawl!

If it helps, my old boss used to think I was saying “moley” when I would say Maori. So it should sound roughly like that, except with a rolled r instead of an l. :)

This is excellent advice! Mary’s pronunciation is usually pretty bang on. Just roll that r HARD.

 I finished Runaways on Friday, and I want flatbear to know that I am very unhappy with her for luring me into the world of comics and not giving me a head’s up on how unfulfilled I would be at the end.

OH GOD THAT’S THE WORST. The first two volumes are incredible and then….fleh. Fleeeehhh.
