Hello! I just wanted to point out the reason why Kaneki has appeared so dull and bland in Tokyo Ghoul Root A. It's because that, together with Tsukiyama's abominable lack of development, Kaneki's interaction with him were butchered too. It seems that no one has realized yet that they both were developed as characters together (and with Banjou/Hinami too) and by erasing that, Kaneki's character suffered also.

oh wow but this is actually a really good point??

holy shit i did not consider this. it’s actually something super important because as i’m thinking about it, kaneki unequivocally suffered too with tsukiyama being out of his life. when tsukiyama was around in the manga he was always trying to brighten kaneki up and reassure him, most notably after the kanou raid…

so not only did tsukiyama mellow out from being around kaneki and actually start to get a grip on some real feelings for him, kaneki wasn’t as dark and brooding because he essentially had a family to come back to and focus on. it’s kind of incredible when you consider that at least six months (or maybe it was closer to a year?) of interactions between the two of them really changed them both a lot, to the point of making them both way more introspective. 

they literally made each other better people, it was a mutually beneficial relationship. wow. why didn’t i jump all over this a lot sooner? shit this is great.

”Whatcha Doin’, Sammy”You drawled, leaning backwards on the counter as you stared up at the taller hunter before you. He chuckled shaking his head as he looked at you from the corner of his eyes. 

”Researching”He chuckled, shaking his head again. You pouted before snatching the book out of his hand. He frowned, giving you a ‘really’ look. 

”(y/n)”He warned. Sighing when you smirked at him. 

”What?”You grinned. ”Whatcha gonna do Sammy”You smirked, licking your lips.

REPRESENT: INTERACTIVE

Q&A with Maori Karmael Holmes: Representing the Greater Arts Community


Maori Karmael Holmes is a curator, a designer, and the producing artistic director and founder of the Black Star Film Festival, affectionately dubbed the “Black Sundance Festival.” Originally from Los Angeles, Maori moved to Philadelphia to attend graduate school and has been here ever since. In June 2013, Maori was part of the discussion panel after the premiere of Afropunk Pictures’ “The Triptych,” the Museum’s first Pay What You Wish program supported by the African American Collections Committee. She continues to support the committee and the Museum by spreading the good word about “Represent: 200 Years of African American Art” and participating in the Q&A series for “Represent”: Interactive.

RI: How do you represent your community, your passion, and what you believe in?

MKH: I’m passionate about sharing super cool stuff with the greater community and that is sometimes in the form of writing about it, documenting it on film, curating series, programming a festival, or producing other people’s artwork. I’m most interested in folks who push boundaries artistically and also have something to say.

RI: Which works from the collection are you excited to see and why?

MKH:  I have always liked the work of painters William Henry Johnson and Jacob Lawrence for their use of gesture; photographers Gordon Parks, Carrie Mae Weems, and Lorna Simpson because at one point I wanted to be a photographer and their work was a huge inspiration; Elizabeth Catlett because she’s so badass; and Faith Ringgold, whose work I’ve long admired for her use of fabric and quilting techniques.

RI: Who are the contemporary artists you might like to see represented in this collection in the future?

MKH: I really love Mickalene Thomas’, Sanford Biggers’, and Wangechi Mutu’s work at the moment. I also have a good friend who is crazy talented and had a piece purchased by the National Museum of Women in the Arts—Amy Sherald.

RI: What current and upcoming projects are you working on now?

MKH: I am working on the 4th annual BlackStar Film Festival at the moment, which will take place July 30 to August 2 here in Philadelphia. The festival takes up the bulk  of my free time, although I’m hoping to carve out some space to shoot a short scripted series very soon.

You're wasting your time drawing Stingyu no one wants to see a pairing betwen minor characters. Gruvia is far more popular that's what you should be drawing.

I draw what makes me happy not what’s popular besides I don’t even like Gruvia that much anymore…
