Got to go to Linework in Portland, Oregon, last weekend and was lucky enough to meet up and draw Club★Crab collabs with the brilliant Julia / sketchuli, Atti / appleatti and William / ashwara ! Let’s all hang out again someday soon! Or some year! <3
Whenever I say “Grell’s main squeeze is William (it’s also mentioned in the official Character Guide)” in meetings with the [anime] staff, most people react “Whaaaaat!?” and then ask me like “Isn’t Sebastian the one who he’s really after!!??”. I think, from Grell’s point of view, Sebastian is more like an idol. It’s like there’s someone you love in real life but in front of your favourite artist you become a fan girl and scream for him. Since he’s everyone’s idol though, you don’t really expect of him to return your love. Once he does, everything becomes too ‘real’ and you somehow lose your interest in him. You just want to scream and enjoy [being a fan girl] one-sidedly. That’s the image I have about Grell’s feelings for Sebastian. When I tell that to female creators, they mostly say “I know that feeling too!!!”. That’s the way girls are, isn’t it? Grell is a boy, but he has a heart of a girl.
My family doesn’t celebrate my birthday, since it overlaps with final exams week and Hanukah. So since tomorrow is Shakespeare’s [accepted] birthday, my mom ordered this outstanding cake. Even the knife is edible! Happy birthday Billy!
