"Artist Asks": 1, 5, 8, 11, and 15. Sorry for so many, I'm just curious. :/
1 is done!
5- Who/what inspires me. Tumblr! The AMAZING artists I am exposed to every day. Couture fashion, fairy tales, taking existing story archetypes and smashing them to pieces, my wife.
8- I WISH I had time to redraw something right now, but I promise to do some at some point in the future :)
11 is done!
15 is done!
(ask me more!)
1, 2, 11, 15
1 and 2 have been answered, so here’s a pick of the REST of my workspace!
Mycroft the jerkbird, MANY MOVIES, collection of superhero glasses, a calender still on January (WHAT YEAR IS IT?!), many dragon skulls and skeletons, expensive Hawkeye things (figures, statues, very very old comics), and rare comics - first moon knight, first goliath, and the best - first Carol Danvers!
11- Do I listen to music when I draw? YES. I cannot draw in silence. When I’m home it’s usually the tv, but at work or out and about it’s Janelle Monae, Gamma Ray, Metallica, Adele, Paloma Faith, Rizzle Kicks, Beck, Outkast, Haim, Lorde, Buddy Holly, Cee-Lo, Gogol Bordello, Queens of the Stone Age, Etta James, Nina Simone, Marina and the Diamonds, I could literally go on for hours.
15- Weird artist behavior. I DO THE FACE THING. I make the faces of the expressions I am drawing. Constantly. Right now, in fact.
So I am in a Jane Austen and Film class, and our final project is an adaptation of a Jane Austen novel into a screenplay. We are allowed to do whatever we want with it, basically, so I opted to go for the Pride & Prejudice/Pacific Rim crossover. Because JANE AUSTEN AND GIANT ROBOTS AND MONSTERS. Do you have any suggestions for jaeger names? The two jaegers that need naming belong to Lizzie & Jane, and then Darcy & Bingley.
Gosh I’m sorry honey, I know literally zero about Jane Austen! Can anyone else help?
A picture of the contents of my pencil case. I don’t really use traditional media (when I do it’s just a pencil and paper), so here’s a look at the guts of my computer bag!
Wallet, Eos lipbalm, moisturizer (I have hella dry skin, like T-Rex dry.) my mere, eyelash glue, allergy pills, lighter, hairties and bobby pins. I have so much hair 0.0. Bag also often contains entire computer/tablet setup, food, makeup bag, eyelash kit, and massive wad of work keys.
Uhm. 1? Which was a picture of your workspace? =3
IT”S SUCH A MEEEEESS. One day I will be able to afford a nice big workspace with SHELVES! And not a stack of art books beside my table!
LavaDad's hair is AWESOME!
Thank you! I colored it about 18 different times before I was happy with it, but I think the blue works!
This might be a silly question but I've been reading the trades of Captain Marvel and they seem to stop after Down. Did it change name or have they just stopped collecting them in trades?
The next one you need is a crossover with Avengers Assemble, and it’s called The Enemy Within! Your LCS might have it stocked with the Avengers books, or you can ask them to order one for you :)
Yo, I just wanna say I understand your viewpoint, and the view points of others. It's a totally valid view point to have on the Leto matter. And yeah, it is unfortunately a WIDE RANGE of people that fall into that "thank you". Obviously it doesn't amend things and I'm not asking you at all to remove the post. I had just wanted to know what you thought of his statement/ if you knew about that part. Thank you for being strong in your beliefs but still respectful- prior Anon about Leto stuff
Hey duders it’s totally cool, thank YOU for your very respectful reply :) I learned way back in my tumblr baby days that screaming at anons gets you nowhere. Stick to your guns. Don’t run with scissors. etc.
I understand that Leto has some fans out there, and that’s great, that doesn’t have any impact on my life whatsoever. I have a lot of problems with Dallas Buyer’s Club, a lot of which are personal, and it breaks my heart to see something like his portrayal lauded and defended.
But thank you for your very chill response, it was hella respectful and you are a-okay in my book, anon!
Hi I just saw your post about gluten allergies & I have those too! It's not full-blown celiacs but sister I feel your struggle! Feel well soon & much love! Xo
Aw thank you honey!
And now for the mantra of the gluten-intolerant:
THANK FUCK FOR RICE NOODLES AND CORN TORTILLAS.
"To everyone in the world who felt injustice for being who you are and who you love. And I stand here in front of the world for you and with you." Actually he did say a thank you. Not meaning to start a confrontation. I never saw Leto's movie, I'm not a fan &I don't know anything about the role except what I've read (which is a lot of angry posts--not saying the thing you reblogged was angry, absolutely not). But that was a portion of his speech, and I feel like a lot of people missed that bit.
Okay so I’ve gotten, approximately, a shit-ton of these since reblogging that text post. And you’re right, he did thank what is sadly a massive group of people. But I’m not going to delete the post, and I’m not going to amend it. The problems with the movie he starred in do not begin nor end with his acceptance speech.
I would delete it if he had specifically mentioned transwomen.
I would delete it if he went back in time and said ‘No, I’m sorry, as a cis-gendered male I cannot take this role, here is a list of many, many incredibly talented transfemale actresses that can do this character more justice than I can.’
The Ugandan president's daughter being gay is a fake from a satire site. Would be great if someone with your readership would post the correction so it stops getting reblogged.
Done! I’ve deleted the post, if you see it, please don’t reblog it.
That quote is from 1990- it's still gross and awful in every possible way, but it's not actually a new development.
It’s a shame that we haven’t come very far at all in 23 years.
Hey when the Asheville comic expo happening? I think you've said it before but I've forgotten and I really would like to go! It's sounds really cool!
September 20th at the US Cellular Center in Asheville, North Carolina! IT’S GONNA BE SO AWESOME. I’ll be announcing some of the guests soon and I am sooooo excited.
It’s $10 at the door for the whole day, and we’ll be using ticketmaster for online sales as well. I’ll post that too, when it’s ready. It runs from 11am until 6pm!
Come buy my stuff! Come buy my friend’s stuff!
AH I LOVE IT THANK YOU SO MUCH (Also I need to use Starbutt in every b/t fic I write from now on.)
Aw honey you’re so welcome! It’s nice to actually have a day to sit down and grind out a stack of commissions.
And Starbutt is the accepted nickname, it’s true.
I saw that you were coming to the Asheville Comic Expo. Do you live in (or around) Asheville? I'm not trying to be stalkerish I live in Asheville and I never really expect to see anyone on here that lives in Asheville.
Not only do I live in Asheville, but I’m the assistant event co-ordinator of the Asheville Comic Expo! And I work at Comic Envy on Tunnel Road, which is the comic store that hosts the expo :)
So yup, I will be at the Expo! I will be the REALLY STRESSED OUT ONE but also having the time of my life. Come by the store, I would LOVE to meet you!
