This was a picture I started before I got a job and then forgot about it.
I found it on monday and decided to finish it. Three things that I find hard to draw are in it: bicycles, kisses and houses. Okay the house doesn’t count, that was easy as it’s basically just the door.
Btw the city I live in now has beautiful houses with really amazing old doors. The door on the illo is one of the simpler ones, most of them are really detailed with faces, figures and plants.
Prints are available here.
I’m in the mood for BEAUTIFUL PICTURES
Real women don’t have curves. Real women don’t have a frame at all. Real women are shapeless beings of blinding light with terrible powers that even they cannot truly comprehend, and all we can do is crouch in terror.
Night Vale is really good for practicing character design, right? (I only wish I were better at it!) Like so many other fans, my own mental image of the characters is pretty constantly in flux. This is the Carlos I drew tonight, but tomorrow night, I’m certain he’ll look different. =)
I’ve been re-listening to the entire series, which has made me like Carlos a lot more as a character, rather than just as… a plot device? (Which was my initial impression until One Year Later.) He totally starts out like a reluctant action hero, ready to save the town and “figure out just what is going on around here.” But that pretty quickly fades away into general confusion and bad haircuts. And then, well, it’s no surprise that almost dying shifts his perspective on things. And now he’s so well-adjusted to life in Night Vale and he signs text messages with x’s and o’s and he uses gravity going out as a chance to clean the gutters and he thinks a dog is part of what makes a home and just! Man, no wonder Cecil fell in love instantly. Good call on that one, right?
But anyway, he’s also totally like 10, 15 years away from becoming Doc Brown at this point, right? Like, straight up mad scientist. After all, he’s a scientist who studies science. His hair is already graying. He thinks Erlenmeyer flasks represent perfection. He has a danger meter. That measures in fatality units. His perfect hair has to be a little bit more… science-y at this point, right?
So I re-watched (or rather re-listened) through the first seven seasons of X-Files, my first main fandom
This may have been a mistake, since I am now full of Feelings
And then I decided to make a helpful venn diagram
i’m gonna lead you down the path that rocks
i feel like we’re gonna know within the next couple of decades whether there really had been historical cultural contact between african/asian/oceanian cultures and the americas greatly predating european exploration
i feel like there’s a decent chance that we’re all going to be living through what could end up being a massive paradigm shift in historical anthropology and a disrupting of some of the most well-known facets of world history
