“[Oswald and Edward] are both outcasts in their own way and in a way that actually complements each other. Oswald is more emotional, whereas Edward is very cerebral and they both have lost everyone in their lives.” - Robin Lord Taylor.
These two characters complement each other so well and they will always end up entwined in each others lives, one way or another.
Oh hey here’s this dotwork drawing that took me like 6 months, on Instagram I had a tonne of people asking me why Jerome is there instead of Jack Nicholson’s Joker, & it’s very simple really, BECAUSE I LIKE JEROME MORE THAN JACK NICHOLSONS JOKER
Also idk really how this idea came about, I was originally gonna like merge their heads together but somehow it turned into a weird squishy 3 headed thing
A guy just came into my work. He was with his gf and the first thing I noticed was, as usual, his awesome tattoos. He had POKEMONS ALL DOWN HIS ARM. So I’m making their food and I was asking about how he deals with people who judge him because of the tattoos’ theme. I still don’t know how to deal with people who ask me “Why would you get a tattoo of that?” He gives me good advice, like the whole ‘Stare an idiot down until they have to explain their shitty joke and sound like an asshole’, ignore them because they’re sad enough to say something about it. He said that he gets more positivity than negativity. I showed him my Batman and Joker wrists and he was fascinated, despite the clear Captain America shield on his hat. We joked that we were enemies and then he pulls up his shirt sleeve to reveal a MASSIVE Captain America shield tat. We laugh, I give them a discount, no one gives a fuck that one of us is DC and the other is Marvel, the end.

An idea a friend had re: Dr. Pamela “Poison Ivy” Isley:
I was talking the other day about how at least some of Batman’s female villains could stand to be revamped in a different direction than the glamorous scheming seductress archetype they pretty much all have always embodied. Here’s the first idea: Punk Rock Riot Grrrl Poison Ivy. Instead of killing people with poisonous kisses, poisonous thorns pop up out of her flesh when it’s go time (like Marrow or Spyke from X-Men), and she brawls and slashes and stabs people. Keep the green skin and red hair she’s had in modern times, but replace the flowing locks with a short, spiky style. Get rid of the beauty pageant bathing suits and planties, and give her big stompy combat boots, torn denim jeans or shorts, and the classic flannel-over-tee-shirt combo, with the flannel sleeves rolled up so she can show off her biceps, and so she doesn’t tear them when she pops the aforementioned poisonous thorns to fuck somebody up. Throw in copious ear and facial piercings, and maybe even some thematic tattoos. Batman facing off against a bunch of cops mind-controlled by Ivy is a stock scene, but imagine how much scarier that scene would be if, instead of maybe some trace pollen on their lips where she kissed them, they all have foot-long plant-spikes sticking out of their chests/necks/etc. where she stabbed them. Imagine the mind-control poison takes hold, and then her new slaves all pull those foot-long thorns out of their own flesh and try to stab Batman with them, while vines and moss grow up out of their wounds, turning them into human-plant hybrids Borg-style.
