My mom once said to me, “if you ever have car troubles but don’t know what the problem is, don’t take it in to a mechanic because they will try to sell you things you don’t need. Instead park yourself on the side of the highway, pop your hood, and look confused. Some mechanic will pull over to help and he’ll tell you what the problem is for free.” And that’s the day I realized that I could make the patriarchy work for me.

RUSSIA HAS DECLARED THAT THEY’RE INVADING UKRAINE OFFICIALLY. NOT EVEN HIDING BEHIND OLD AGREEMENTS. Britain has to aid the Ukrainians against the Russians now,  America warned Russia not to, with consequences if they did, so now they’re involved,  Canada was looking into what Russia was doing to see how bad it was and they to have to get involved even more.

"Oh Amy, I hear the song of your sadness."
"I’m not sad."
"Then why are you crying?"

Spent many, many hours livestreaming and working on this painting - my tribute and goodbye to the magnificent Amy Pond (and how she inspired the greatest painter that ever lived!) I of course purposely researched Van Gogh works such as Starry Night and Sunflowers and would like to think if Amy stayed for a portrait, Vincent painted something like this.

EDIT: This artwork (“The Song of Your Sadness”) is now officially licensed by the BBC! It’s available as a print online at the BBC Shop, as well as in a larger size from Big Chief Studios Ltd.


No matter who you are or what you look like, just remember that Aang thinks you’re interesting and would like to be your friend.

And the final in the set (for now) of my Doctor Who commissions from Big Chief Studios! Portrait of John Hurt’s (as of this moment, still mysterious) War Doctor, titled “The Lonely God,” officially approved by the BBC! Ref images were provided by them as well. Part of my official series, but as you can see has quite a different, darker feel than the others; I was going for an intense, fiery battlefield sort of thing. It’s the Night of the Doctor, after all.

Will be available to buy at the DW Official 50th Celebration in London, and online afterwards! Follow me on Tumblr or Instagram for relevant announcements.

With my best guy friend today shopping.

  • Me:Oh lord bless your soul.
A friendly reminder to the Transformers fandom

We have a new movie coming out, which is going to mean more baby Bay fans!


The other day I was out and a girl at the cash register looked at my shirt [had a bunch of G1 Autobots on it] and brightly asked if I liked Transformers.  I chirped right back that I sure did, and asked if she was a fan.  She was VERY ENTHUSIASTIC in her response, starting to talk about how much she loved it, and I asked if she was a long-time fan or a newer one.

She stopped dead.  I actually watched her close up with fucking serious fear body language as she mumbled around the question.  She looked like she thought I was gonna HIT HER.

I told her there wasn’t a wrong answer but she still ducked behind the freaking counter when she really quickly blurted out that she’d only seen the movies and she looked like she was going to cry in relief when I started gushing about my excitement for the new one.

We had a nice conversation between customers for a while.  Because she clearly needed someone to fangirl with.





Just because they haven’t been following their whole lives or don’t like the same versions as you, or versions you don’t think highly of, does not make them lesser fans and sure as fuck does not make them lesser people that you can just be assholes to at your leisure.

(Again, thanks to forgottenwounds for the link!)

Oh hey look, another friend with self esteem issues. This is my friend Andy and he doesn’t think that girls will like him. I keep telling him that’s not true but he doesn’t believe me. I probably should say this but I will, we have like 6hr talk every week about how he needs to talk to girls and if he talked to someone at a concert they totally wouldn’t call 911 because they think he’s a fucking creeper.
But yeah, he’s 6’2 and super buff (like 5+ days at the gym or something. He has a problem) I think he’s really pretty.

Can you like or reblog if you think he’s pretty/handsome/decently attractive so I am show him notes?
I have his okay btw so I’m not being a super creep.
