hah oh my god I am so angry.
Notorious arter and reader of comics.
This is mainly an Marvel Comics/movies + Lord of the Rings art blog with a slight smattering of Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation, Community and more.
I am always happy to answer any asks sent my way!
This blog is occasionally NSFW and NOT spoiler-free. If you ever need me to tag anything, trigger or otherwise, please let me know!
I can do the hot tea and honey :) Unfortunately a loathing of chicken soup and various and sundry food allergies keep me from the second part, but marchingjaybird wife has promised me vegetable soup tonight, so here’s hoping!
I’d eat this chicken tho.
Week and a half until ACE. The biggest day of my year. The convention of which I am a co-organizer. Week and a half.
AND I AM SO SICK. I am SO. SICK. Like barely get out of bed sick. SICK. SO. SICK.
this is not at all an appropriate gif but this is the only one I have on the work computer…
EVERYTHING’S COMING UP FLATBEAR!
Ugh I miss playing the button accordion. I had to leave mine in New Zealand as it weighed AS MUCH AS A FULL GROWN ELEPHANT and I couldn’t bring it on the plane.
Weird hobby. I know. But I miss the sound of it :(
You ever have one of those days where you want to kick and scream and break things and burn everything you own and just start over again?
ugh I’m so sick of feeling so angry all the time this cannot be good for me ><
Man. So I have a Carol postcard and a Carol sticker ready for Heroescon. I have a print in the works, but in order to finish it in time, I’m going to have to force myself through it and I’m not going to be happy with it.
I can take some time to work on it after and offer it online, and have it for the Asheville Comic Expo in September…but I’d really like to have it ready for Heroes.
But there’s also a giant cosplay to get done.
And I’m so desperately over drawing right now…
DECISIONS. FLAMES. ON THE SIDE OF MY FACE.
Hey kids! I have a neeeeew email address! Because I’m an adult now!
Because I’m not Bisexual.
Look at it this way: I believe in physical attraction, emotional attraction, and romantic attraction.
I am physically attracted to some men. I don’t want to have sex with them, but my body responds in a manner that I would consider physical attraction.
I am emotionally attracted to some men. There are some men that I like to think about, that I enjoy seeing, that I take pleasure in reading about.
I am romantically attracted to women. I only want to be in relationships with women. There is literally nothing about a relationship with a man that I find appealing. It’s not for me.
To put it simply, I’m gay, not blind. I can look at some men and act as though I am attracted to them. But it doesn’t redefine my sexuality in any way. I am a lesbian, I identify as a lesbian, and to be honest, commenting on the relative attractiveness of men doesn’t change that at all.
I am what I say I am.
I know you weren’t trying to be rude, and thank you for phrasing your question politely. But honestly, my lengthy answer boils down to ‘because I say so.’ I, myself, am not trying to be rude. Gender and sexual identity are very touchy subjects for me, and it makes me uncomfortable to have either questioned. I promise, after 15 years of knowing that I am 100% gay, I haven’t been waiting for someone to correct me into bisexuality.
I just…am who I am. I’m me. I’m Flatbear.
jeeze I’m sick for one day and bossman posts a bunch of pictures of himself playing with the new Kaiju figures we got in.
GIMME MY TRESSPASSER!
What I expected today: Go to work early, draw for two hours, have a lovely day catching up with bossman after the weekend, unpack new Pacific Rim figures (hopefully), and work on replying to ACE artists.
What I got: Full on celiacs attack and everything that comes with it: digestive smaug, migraines, aching joint pain, mood swings, et al.
So do I draw and draw and draw now before the arthritic pain sets in and I can’t hold my pen? Or do I wait and see how bad it gets and hope that I get some work done?
Cut for all the shit that’s been coming up against me lately. A lot of stream-of-thought rambling and bitching and getting all the bad feels out because it SERIOUSLY HELPS TO DEAL WITH THIS SHIT! Warnings for PTSD, depression, graphic descriptions of dislocation, leg injuries, surgery, and all of the other fun parts of life.
I have a stack of new followers from Jaegercon, so here is some babbling about me! Before I start the daily arting.
2. Weakness: Physical? Two fake knees. But my other weakness is trashy reality tv often about toddlers in or and tiaras.
Okay so you guys, if you’ve been following me for a while, know that I have some semi-major post traumatic issues because of ~injuries. One of the things I deal with because of this is short term memory loss. Most of the time it sucks and is confusing.
BUT TODAY WAS REALLY ROUGH AND SO I’M FORGETTING A LOT TONIGHT AND IT’S AWESOME BECAUSE I DON’T REMEMBER ANY OF THE SHIT I GOT AT THE GROCERY STORE. MY ENTIRE NIGHT HAS BEEN ‘OH MY GOD I HAVE MUFFINS WHEN DID I GET CHIPS WHAT THE FUCK WHERE DID THIS BAG OF M&MS COME FROM.’
‘Relationships are like goblins. You have to kick them a lot and practice constant vigilance so that they don’t shit all over everything you love.’
Wow that might be the most accurate thing ever. It’s true, too. I know a lot of people see Mary and I as some kind of relationship ideal, an example of how gay and nerdy can work out well. It’s INCREDIBLY flattering and just lovely, but for real, you guys see the finished product.
We argue, but we never fight, BECAUSE we argue. We talk. Even if we (mary) don’t want to, one of us (me) will force the other (mary) to talk until we’re on the same page (crazy for real insanity sex) again. You have to talk, and you have to be honest, I cannot stress that enough.
I think the reason why we work is because we dated online for a year before we even met, and babies, trust me when I tell you this, when you date someone long-distance? ALL YOU HAVE IS TRUST. There’s no better (and sadly, rarer) foundation to build a relationship on.
