i have a tip jar now!!! 

if anyone ever feels particularly inspired to tip me (even if it’s only, like, $0.25, i don’t care, it’s all lovely) i would just be all-around thankful and happy!!!

i was being maudlin & redrew the young avengers.  *sigh*  if i could get paid just to draw faces & expressions all day, i would be so ridiculously happy!
top row:  kate bishop, nate richards (thanks, khirsah!), eli bradley
middle row:  billy kaplan, teddy altman
bottom row:  tommy shepherd, cassie lang
(you can tell how far i got in the series based on the fact that i did not know nate’s last name.)

i’ve had this idea for a star trek AU where Jim is half-vulcan (because of REASONS) for a quite a while, and i’ve maybe sort of started actually writing it?  idk, i saw guardians of the galaxy a couple of weeks ago and was thoroughly unimpressed by it (… . to put it mildly), but it did put me in a sci-fi mood.  and my brain went to this story.
SO.  maybe in a couple weeks i’ll have another illustrated fic to put up?  we’ll see.  i’m having fun dinking around with this idea, no matter what comes of it!

welp, my computer is dead-o.  and i’m actually pretty relieved?  which probably says quite a lot about what kind of a person i am and/or where i am in my life right now.

anyway, i’m not gonna get it fixed or buy a new computer yet, i don’t think.  i’ve been having lots of fun using the computer labs at my alma mater university, which have everything i need anyway (like nice scanners & photoshop).  it’ll be an experiment!!!  the first time in — a decade? — that i won’t have a computer.  it’s not like computers don’t surround me in every corner of my life anyway!  (and it’s not like i don’t still have my ipod, too!)

funnily enough, this is all happening as i’m getting rid of my car.  i’m choosing to interpret this all as a sign of — something.  an end to a period of my life?  the start of something new?  idk.

alright!!!  let’s see how this goes!

a momentous occasion!!! somehow i have reached 1000+ followers. apparently the secret to tumblr is to post harry potter fanart, so here’s some more!  just a teeny drawing of the golden trio, but still.

in other news, my computer crashed yesterday. *sigh*

will take it in to the shop tomorrow, but if it’s busted i’ll be using work & library computers for a while.  may be a bit before i can post more art.   we’ll see.

i hope you’re not dead, my faithful steed, but if you are, we had a good six years together!  (that’s a quarter of my life, holy shit.)  thank you for all the awful phases you’ve seen me through.  *salutes*

hey, peeps, would anyone like to buy the originals of any of my art?  i still suck with prints and have a mental block about working on that, but i’ll totally sell my originals?  particularly of my recent fanart?  like, any of my harry potter stuff or the captain america things i did?  talk to me????

laudanine:

Yeah, it’s not brilliant to ignore an apology HOWEVER no one has to accept an apology. If you say you’re sorry, but the person you’ve wronged says fuck you? Their right. So learn to give a good apology, but also learn to deal with someone rejecting it.

this is true.  no one is obligated to accept an apology.  i do, however, feel like american culture teaches people to hold onto grievances and stew, rather than accept apologies and move on, and in my experience this never leads to good things.  and particularly if what happened was an accident (which is what i’m talking about in this comic), refusing an apology is just about the shittiest thing you could do for both you and the other person.

experimentation time!  i’m not sure i’d call this entirely successful, but it was good fun!  and i learned a lot!  i colored it entirely with COPIC markers and colored pencils, and i am loving this combo so muuuuuuch.  i know markers + colored pencils is classic, but i think i’m just figuring it out!
