Anonymous asked: Dude, if you can't find work, make your own work - you're so creative and talented, I'm sure you have a couple project ideas rolling around in your head that you can develop, do, and then rule the world with! :D No, really, I mean, yes, things in moderation; maybe you feel like you should be humble and just take over a county or town, but no! You're deserving of the world; you conquer that shit with your amazing art! ;D
oh wow, you are so kind and this is amazing and really cheered me up and made my day while i’m going through some shitty times, so thank you so much for that<3
in truth, i’ve kinda given up on having any kind of career as a comic artist, or making a living with my art in any way for a myriad of reasons, ranging from people just not being that into it, to me having a proven track record at being horrible at staying consistent with my art once it becomes “work” instead of just “for fun.” but that doesn’t mean i don’t want to continue making comics, or that i don’t hold out some sliver of hope that it might somehow lead to a way to sustain myself. but stuff like this gives me even more hope, so thank you again! :)
Anonymous asked: I'm sorry that things suck; I certainly hope they get better, and soon! :D
thank you, i appreciate it. :) i hope so too! i think soon my health will be better, but finding work seems much more uncertain.
This is a sign that you really are important to this world.
hi, i care.
I really do care and if you need to talk, I’ll be there!
I needed this
Always here for anyone who needs it
This actually helped this time…
Always keep this circulating for people who need it. My box is open, btw, you can talk to me anon or by name if you need someone to listen.
everything in my life sucks right now.
If we ever get to the post-apocalyptic era, I hope everyone dresses like this. Hot dang.
I have reblogged these before but I still like them. Especially bottom left.
Ronnie would totally wear this
my dear friend Jessi (lilylilymine) whom i really admire told me she liked the way i draw legs (thank you, btw!) and asked if i would do a tutorial. i feel a little weird having never done a tutorial before, and i don’t feel like i have the authority to really teach anyone about art, but i can’t deny Jessi. ;)
i’m not sure if i have anything particularly revolutionary or exciting to say…i’m sure i missed a lot of important stuff. i guess it’s mostly just an insight into how i personally like to draw legs, so take it with a grain of salt. :)
SHOUT OUT TO ALL MY DISABLED FATTIES WHO HAVE PEOPLE ASSUMING YOU’RE JUST A LAZY PIECE OF SHIT WHEN YOU TAKE THE ELEVATOR OR A SEAT ON THE BUS WHO NOT ONLY HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THE CHRONIC PAIN THAT COMES WITH A LOT OF ILLNESSES BUT PEOPLE MAKING A MOCKERY OF YOU WHEN YOU GO OUT AND TRY AND DO YOUR THING.
I LOVE YALL
would anybody be willing to open up their towns and play with me today in New Leaf?? i really want to visit someone else’s town, but i’m frustrated cuz none of my friends are ever online/have their gates open. you can visit my town too, just don’t, ya know, run or destroy my flowers and basic animal crossing etiquette shizz. my native fruit is pears, and i’d like to get oranges and apples since they’re the only fruit i’ve yet to get. bonus for me if you have some of the rococco furniture in your catalog. but yeah, i’ll be playing all day, message me if interested! :)
I havent drawn anything for myself in a while! SQUASHED between many different projects! Heres a quick drawing!
fan-comic turtle tots. their facial marks are now officially facepaint instead of natural markings. XD
agfdfhdfgd too adorable
Anonymous asked: I found your picture (you know the one lol) on Facebook and I am so pissed at all the smaller people calling her a diabetic, unhealthy slob & all the big girls flying to defend themselves against the negative light you apparently portrayed fat people in (we're not all like that!!111 I do this and this and eat this and blah blah blah) because fat people can't possibly enjoy fast food and the general public doesn't understand the dif. between having a (good) diet and being on a diet. Ugh.
yikes. i don’t know specifically what you’re referring to (and nobody send me links or anything, i really don’t care), but i’m assuming someone took my “never say diet” drawing and posted it on facebook to ridicule. i kinda knew this would happen, which is why i was hesitant to post the image in the first place, but i also never expected it to get thousands of reblogs and as much attention as it’s gotten. it was just a tattoo design i thought would be cute and expressive of my personal beliefs and values and doodled it up pretty quickly for my portfolio. i’m not surprised by peoples’ negative reactions; it’s a pretty knee-jerk reaction people have to fat people being depicted as anything other than pitiful sub-humans we should all avoid being. even other fat people feel this way. and of course people love to use diabetes as a kind of boogeyman to justify their prejudices, instead of, you know, an actual medical condition that millions of people live with. if anyone out there has a problem with the drawing and thinks i’m “glorifying obesity” or whatever, i’d like to ask them to picture instead of a happy, confident fat girl, that i instead drew a happy, confident, thin girl. athletic, waifish, whatever your idealized thin body is. do you still have a problem with the drawing or its message of self-acceptance and body positivity? i’m willing to bet probably not. maybe ask yourself why that is.
anyway, thanks for your support, and i’m glad the drawing and its message resonated with a lot of people. :)
