an icon for my new blog

(Hey guys! Mod  🎩 here! I hope you like this new icon for our blog ^v^ 

the electricity died once while drawing this and I’ve lost all of my work so pLEasE)

Edit: I didn’t quite like how the icon looked, so I’ve made a few changes :’)

Meet 63-year-old Lyn Slater, who has, until recently, been an ordinary professor at Fordham University. One day she went to meet a friend for lunch outside the Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week. Foreign journalists suddenly surrounded her, mistaking her for a fashion icon and attracting spectatorsIt was a defining moment that turned Lyn into an ‘Accidental Icon’. Her blog of the same name, inspired by the experience, soon began making international waves. She is now a public voice against ageism in the fashion industry and the world.

“Fashion and my style help me struggle against that invisibility that comes with age.“

She was once asked about the old notion of ‘dressing for one’s age,’ and her response was clear:

“We use language to control people’s behavior. This phrase is a way of putting older women in their place. I’m certain that if you feel comfortable in your own clothes, it’s completely irrelevant how old you are.”

(THIS POST WILL STAY THE WAY IT IS, BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE
RESPONDED TO IT AND LIKED IT A LOT. THANK YOU MY FRIENDS.)

Many of you have asked me about the meaning of the name spatziline. One day before class I was talking with @invisiblegerman about the new blog I wanted to create, and how I was having problems in finding a name. She’s German, so I asked her cute names in German lol. 

I don’t remember when or how but we started to talk about names of animals, then she mentioned spatzi (sparrow). I like sparrows and the name, SO I KNEW THAT WAS THE CHOSEN ONE. She told me to add “line” if I wanted the name to sound cuter…
AND THERE IT WAS: SPATZILINE (Little Sparrow) 

This was my first icon lol

In other words, it was @invisiblegerman‘s fault.

Guess what nerds…………………………………… im officially back and ready to give u all some more quality paint

Im sorry that i was gone for longer than anticipated!! it was only supposed to be for like a week or two but then i got swamped with schoolwork and. whoops there goes all my free time

thank you all for your patience and have a good night/day/evening/whatever

Made myself a new icon (for my main blog) because I just love Zenyatta and Junkrat too much.

They could bond over pranks, I swear. ;///w///;

lizardyeast  asked:

I notice your icons always look so much alike (not in a bad way!), and I was wondering if the base of it is a drawing of yourself that you change around from time to time? It's pretty neat how you do that!

No, not really.

The evolution of my icons goes like this:

It started out with a 19th century painting of King Charles I I found online.

I had it for a long while, but I decided I wanted a new original icon that was more caroony and fit my blog. So I asked my friend @wi-fu to make me the second icon, which is a cartoon version of the first one. (the bi flag in the background wasn’t originally there, I couldn’t find the original version)

I’ve had it for a while, until I learned that Charles I was a douche of a king, so I decided to switch to Charles II, his much more awesome son. I asked wi-fu to edit my icon to the third icon, based off paintings of Charles II.

A while back I got a job, and with the money, I decided to commission my artist friends. I commissioned by good friend @snowflake-owl to make me a new icon, with a new original King Charles that isn’t based off of any particular historical figure. And that is my current icon.

In between, I’ve also had other icons, like a drawing of my fan troll by @salihombox or a Bi Space Invader. As well as halloween and hanukkah edits of my other icons.

I hit 8k a while back (what? how??) so to celebrate this milestone i’ll be doing some blog awards!

DATING SIRIUS BLACK WOULD INCLUDE...

A/N: the part two of ‘how you meet sirius black’ ! i posted three times today as a thank you for 100 followers on my new blog!!!! thank you so so much i love every one of you guys!

  • hating him at first but liking him later on
  • even tho he seemed cocky and arrogant you knew that it was just an act
  • you were the only person that saw the “real” sirius black
  • which was the caring, sweet, guy that he was
  • lots of make out sessions
  • that would get out of hand some of the time ;)
  • lots of “baaabeee” mainly coming from him
  • a whole lotta jealousy
  • like he would just growl when a guy would try to make a move on you
  • then in the end of the night, he kisses you and puts a hand on your cheek uttering “mine”
  • wearing his shirt most of the time
  • and him spanking you saying “GOD you’re so hot wearing my clothes”
  • the marauders all shipping you
  • most girls being absolutely jealous of you since you are dating the sirius black
  • sirius noticing the hateful glances the girls give you
  • well you guys are the perfect couple
  • sometimes even prongs would yell across the grand hall “relationship goals!” to the both of you
  • McGonagall telling him off while the two of you are just busting out laughing
  • inside jokes where you just glance at each other from across the room and stifle a laugh
  • sneaking into his room at night when you have a nightmare and slip into his bed
  • him immediately making room for you, wrapping an arm around your waist kissing your cheek to give you a comforting feeling
  • waking up like that and you turn around to face him then notice he’s asleep
  • tracing your finger across his face
  • eventually him waking up adorably, fluttering his long eyelashes at you and smiling at the sight of you
  • his mORNING VOICE
  • the both of you hate pet names so you keep it simple to either babe or baby
  • moving into an apartment once you graduated Hogwarts
  • so that means double the morning voice, double the wearing his shirt around the house, and double the I love yous
