Anybody want to put money on what the next big film to do the ‘character surrounded by guards being walked down a corridor while looking cool’ thing will be? Avengers seems to have kick-started the trend with Loki (though I’m sure it wasn’t the first film to do this - Star Wars: A New Hope springs to mind, for example), Star Trek Into Darkness jumped on the band wagon with Khan (Linkara pointed the parallel out in his VLOG to my amusement), and Man of Steel is doing it with Superman. I love little patterns like this showing up in things! There’s got to be a supercut video coming out of this, surely?!
In other news, I’ve just got to hand in these two essays and then it’s ART TIME. YEAH.
I know it’s been a while since I posted anything, so I figured I should give you guys an update!
Sorry I haven’t managed to give you something pretty to look at for a while - right now I’m working full-time, and also completing a Masters, while playing roller derby and trying to fit in an actual life, so… yeah, I haven’t been great at finishing any pictures. I do have quite a few things on the go though, including a couple of Mermaids & Books entries, so don’t give up on me yet!
In other news, a fun fact! When I’m feeling stressed by things (like assignment deadlines) a sure-fire way to cheer myself up is remembering meeting Brent Spiner at Comicon last year. I know some people say you should never meet your idols, but I am happy to say that meeting one of mine could not have gone better. I love that man, and my memory of meeting him will never stop making me smile no matter how hellish life is otherwise.
Hope life is treating all my fellow tumblrs well!
Question for you guys…
One of my Mermaids & Books pictures just popped up as a reblog on my dashboard with no link whatsoever to me as the artist/source. I don’t really mind THAT much, but it’s a little bit of a shame! Should I ask the original poster to link to me or something? I admit I have no clue about how these things work in Tumblr-land, so I figured I may as well ask for advice! Any tips appreciated :)
EDIT - Thanks for the help everybody! In the end I messaged the original poster and asked them to identify me as a source. I’m sure it was just a simple mistake, but it’s worth trying to change if only so that other people who liked the picture can find the rest of the series more easily! :)
It’s Valentine’s Day apparently, so here’s a raccoon with dreams much bigger than his fears.
Some friends of mine have started a band called ‘Demon Smiles’, and following an exchange on Facebook I promised to draw them a picture if their next song title is ‘Chris Brown can go suck a f*ck’
I’ve held up my end of the bargain….
~ DC Comics Bombshells - Nightwing
This is for the wonderful dcwomenkickingass, in response to this post. That Nightwing. Such a booty on that boy. :P
Note: Poor quality image is due to the fact that I sketched this at work as soon as I read the original post!
~ A little while ago, I discovered the wonderful E.K. Weaver’s (bigbigtruck.tumblr.com) webcomic ‘The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal’. She’s already released Volume 1 in paperback, and released Volume 2 the other week (there are 3 volumes planned in total) - and my copy of Volume 2 just arrived, complete with a sketch of Amal in a Star Trek uniform (DS9! Squee!) in the back. Awesome! So I ended up doing a quick doodle, since I’m home sick and this just cheered me right up! Although, my scanner doesn’t seem to enjoy scanning pencil only drawings…. (Also, let’s pretend the mess that is Amal’s right arm is invisible.)
Seriously, thanks E.K.!
EDIT: Amal is actually sitting resting his left arm on the arm of his chair here, although I rushed it and forgot to add the armchair. Lord, what fools these mortals be! Maybe tomorrow when I’m feeling less cold-y I’ll sketch it in and re-upload…
~ Save The Date!
I offered to design some ‘save the date’ cards (and invitations, as long as I get round to it soon) for a friend who’s getting married next year. She really really likes pugs.

A bookish girl on a book-toboggan, or ‘tobookkan’. She’s probably on her way to a library.
