I channeled some of my rage and despair into this piece today, it helped a little. To all my sisters marching tomorrow, stay safe, be aware of your surroundings but most importantly, show them that we will not be stopped, we will not conform. This battle rages on. Stay Angry, my friends.



EDIT: by popular demand, I made this illustration available as a print and other merchandise, if you’re interested please visit my soc6 page right over >>>> here <<<< thank you for all the love and support. And to all of you that are marching today with me, say it loud sisters, stay strong and stay safe!! <3

I finally finished my set of RWBY semi-silhouettes! I made the one of Ruby almost 3 years ago, and I finally got around to completing the set. I’m super happy with how these turned out! All were done with Adobe Illustrator.

I’ll have prints of these available real soon. I’m also working on a “group shot” of all of them.

anonymous asked:

Hey! Will you be putting more art prints/stickers/other things on your storenvy at any point? Love your art! 🌺✨

Yes! I will be reopening my storenvy with an explosion of new things in June
But for now, it is temporarily open for stickers only!
There are 2 sticker sets available on my store rn, check them out here~
(store closes on March 20th)

So postcards are better than calling your representatives because they’re time-stamped and don’t have to be checked for substances. One of the great things about postcards is that one side is an image and the other side is an explanation. 

Here’s my idea. 

There’s a lot of print on demand places out there. I use Redbubble but there’s a ton of other ones.

Set up an account.

Take photos that regard your issue. Like… if your issue is healthcare, take a picture of your doctor’s bill (with personal info redacted, obviously.) Or if you see anti-semitic graffiti in your neighborhood, take a picture of that. A friend of mine a couple weeks ago was collecting photos of Lake Eerie from when it caught fire (prior to EPA intervention) and ironically putting “Welcome to Beautiful Lake Eerie” over the top. 

It does not take a high-res camera to make a post-card on most of these sites and you can do it with a phone camera. You can set it up (at least on Redbubble) so that it doesn’t show publicly and only you can print it. If you ‘upload to all items’ postcards are available under ‘greeting cards.’

Buy one. 

Write WHY you’re angry on the back. Mail it. 

Congratulations- your representative now has a controversial image complete with artist’s statement and they cannot be separated from each other or divorced from their context.

Hey guys it’s finished! If you’d like to read more about this piece, I have a longer description of it in this post here. Inspired by the actions and spirit of Elizabeth Warren and women throughout history, this design is something truly special to me. I chose to incorporate elements from Watership Down, a story of survival in the darkest of worlds that touched me deeply when I was young. I want to inspire others to keep surviving and persisting, pushing back against the tide of oppression and hate. Women have changed the world a hundred times over no matter how many warnings, no matter how many explanations, and we have always persisted. We will persist.

We are doing a flash preorder for this design - it will be available until February 17th! Get yours here.

Unicorn Empire shirts are printed by hand in small batches using traditional screen printing techniques. We use only high-quality water-based inks, making our shirts uniquely soft and durable. All of our products are available in a range of straight and plus sizes at the same price.

It is New Year’s Day at King Arthur’s court, and a mysterious knight in green arrives at the holiday feast with a peculiar demand. He challenges anyone present to strike a blow against him with his fearsome great axe - but on the condition that, in one year’s time, he may deliver the same blow in return. 

The Green Knight Kickstarter is live! Help me put my comic in print:

kickstarter.com/projects/emilycheeseman/gawain-and-the-green-knight

The print edition of Gawain and the Green Knight will be a 64-page, 8 x 8” hardcover book with 64 full-color interior pages, with a clothbound cover inspired by vintage storybooks (and stamped in green foil!) A digital PDF of the complete story is available to all pledge tiers, and I’m also offering other rewards like stickers, a gold foil print, and a mini comic of another story starring Gawain.

Your support is greatly appreciated! If you’ve read the web version of the comic or you’re a fan of Arthurian stories, check out the project or spread the word if you can! I have 30 days to reach a goal of $7000 to produce these books - this has been a passion project over a year in the making and I’m super excited to see it go to print. Thank you!!

Oh hi, It’s been a while eh?!

I finally decided to move from my animation studio work to a freelance / artist career. More details in the video, but basically I also opened a Patreon campaign and a direct online store on Tictail so you can support my art!

The main goal of the Patreon campaign is to maximize the amount of time I can spend on my personal art projects that I can share with you! Also I want to show you how I make my art so you can learn and hopefully get some inspiration from my process.

I plan to make more

  • illustrations (painted by hand with watercolours, gouache etc. and sometimes digitaly)
  • comics (available for you online and in printed form)
  • books and prints of my art
  • videos showing you my art making process, tutorials and video lessons
  • much more other stuff! and than share it all with you!

I hope we can make a lot of great art together!

anonymous asked:

Yes, Dee, you really should be working. Bet your horses and their owners miss you when you spend all day on here. Why don't you be a regular fan & stop spreading lies & conspiracy theories about Sam & Cait. Wonder what the uni would think of Professor McD's wife being such an obsessed out of touch with reality fanatic. And it would really be embarrassing for K to know that her mother is considered an Outlander tinhatter. Light shipping with no conspiracy theories spread is the way to go, Dee.

Awww, anon, am I spending too much time on Tumblr for your tastes? Debunking too many of your sacred, but not very well supported opinions? Sorry about that- but what I choose to do with the publicly available information that is available to me is my prerogative, as also is how I spend my free time. That’s the time when I am not working. My tag line is a bit of humour, anon, not to be taken seriously. All the work gets done and then some, anon, never worry about that!
And speaking of publicly available information, I see that you have also availed yourself of some and done some poking about as to me and my family. No problem as far as I am concerned, or my family either. It is, after all, publicly available information and you are quite welcome to it. But you leave me at something of a social disadvantage, anon, in that you presume to address me on a first name basis- but, as you have chosen to remain anonymous-I don’t yet have your name to reciprocate properly with our first name basis communications. Oh, well, I suppose there is nothing for it but to just go on addressing you as “anon” until you see fit to introduce yourself.
But I suppose I should now get down to answering your questions. Since you have troubled yourself to learn so much about me it’s the least I can do to reciprocate your interest!

First, my clients are all quite aware of my blog, and of its direction. In fact we often laugh about the absurdities of social media, and the proclivities of certain of its users to take it upon themselves to tell others how they should think. ( that’s a polite way to say “NSTer, anon)

And then there is my husband, who as you point out, anon, is indeed a professor. He was a little miffed to learn about your interest in him, anon, but only because your research seems to have failed to turn up, and refer to him by, his actual job title. He is actually a Distinguished Professor- which means he holds an endowed chair, anon, which means he is a very important part of his department, he teaches the advanced courses, sits on important committees, oh, and he also has tenure. Which means that it doesn’t really matter to him, or to his uni, what sort of things his wife might choose to do with her spare time. Even if that thing is to be an “obsessed out of touch with reality fanatic” lol! He is also well aware of my blog, and it’s content. In fact we both get a really good laugh together most mornings when he shares with me the latest political news a la Trump and friends, and I fill him in on the latest fandom happenings (that’s also a polite way to say “NSTer happenings, anon)

And then there is my lovely daughter, anon. I am so glad you didn’t leave her out of this as I am always happy to talk about her- that’s what parents love to do! She’s also well aware of my blog, and it’s content as well, anon. In fact she was the one who got me started in Tumblr. She ran a fandom blog in another fandom for several years and is also well aware of ships and shipping- and how the term "tinhatter” is applied to any ship that an individual disagrees with (which is a polite way of saying “NSTer”, anon)

So now that the pleasantries are sorted, anon, let’s get down to your real reason for writing. The conspiracy thing. You advocate “light shipping” for me, but there is no such thing. Not in the dictionary, not in the Urban Dictionary, and not even on Google. It doesn’t exist as a word, or a concept. It is only a “thing” in the minds of certain bloggers. The truth is, anon, you either ship it or you don’t. No heavy or light to it.
And as to any “conspiracies” that is also a thing that comes with the territory in this fandom. The position of both sides requires there to be a “conspiracy” for their position to exist. The Sam Cait ship requires the “official” narrative of Sam and other girls to be a put on. And the Samzie ship requires the whole of the matter between Sam and Cait, as displayed by them their own selves, to be a put on. Either way someone is doing a put on, anon, it’s just a difference of opinion as to who.

When I add it up I get sam and Cait, as do my family and friends. Others get a different answer. So be it. Live and let live, and it is all public information after all. It’s not illegal, or even immoral to form opinions about it. Or to print those opinions or discussions.

And that brings me to your last point, anon. The implication that I am putting my family at risk by looking at publicly available information, and printing my opinions about it. Or that I am doing something wrong that I, or they, would not want known about.
It’s obvious that is not the case. If I was doing wrong, and if you were actually someone with the power to do something about that, then we would be having this communication via letterhead, and not via an anonymous submission to my Tumblr blog.

And maybe you should ask yourself what it is that you are really saying when you resort to threats to try to silence the words what you claim to be nothing more than an “obsessed, out of touch with reality fanatic”. If I was truly just a “tinhatter” shouldn’t it be easy to simply ignore me the same way that everyone ignores the homeless guy who stands on the busy intersection preaching loudly, every day, about the end of he world which according to him is directly upon us?
Instead you take the time out of your life to research my family and compose implicit threats- and no one likes to waste time. That tells me that my words are not meaningless. That tells me that my words are believable- and that they are believable enough to cause a threat to your worldview. And that you had no facts at hand, or even a good argument to make to refute them. No reason to need me silenced otherwise that I can see. There really isn’t a higher compliment

So thanks, anon, for taking the time out of your day so send me such a gracious compliment. My family and I send you our regards. Sorry we can’t thank you personally at this time since you are still anonymous, but perhaps in time you will feel comfortable introducing yourself. Or maybe not, since your choice to remain anonymous rather confirms the view that revealing your true identity would also be a reveal that you are in fact nobody whose opinion actually matters- or you would be using your real name and revealing that your opinion DOES matter after all. But this all is making even my eyes roll, anon, so take care of yourself, anon, whoever you are!
Until then- Cheers!

5th of the Galactic skaters: Phichit! 

And that would be it for now! Because these guys were the most requested. 

I have so much homework to do T-T

(If you want to see more characters, you can always suggest!)

All of your comments, likes and reblogs are appreciated! Thank you!❤️

empressfortuna  asked:

Do you have any advice for someone putting together an RPG system for fun and to maybe play with friends? It's something I've started a couple of times (and I have a concept I really like sitting around that I'd like to try to flesh out into a system at some point), but I'm interested in what advice an industry professional has for an amateur.

Sure thing:

1. Start small.

If you’re an author, you don’t write the next Game of Thrones as your very first work, and if you’re a game designer, you don’t go straight to writing the next Dungeons & Dragons.

A good target for a beginning designer is a game that can be set forth in about 5000 words - i.e., basically a sixteen-page pamphlet if you’re aiming for print publication. Have a look at other very short RPGs to get a feel for what the minimal set of stuff you need to include is. Good examples include:

Several of these look like they break my length guideline, but that’s because they include introductory fiction, sample adventures, GM advice sections, etc. Ignore all that for now - zero in on the rules themselves.

2. Start with premise.

Not setting, not mechanics - if you start with those, you’ll end up with a collection of neat worldbuilding bits and dice-rolling tricks that don’t actually add up to anything.

Have a clear idea in your head of what the prototypical session of your game, the Platonic ideal of an adventure, looks like from beginning to end, and ensure that all of the material you write - rules, setting, etc. - directly supports that premise. You can branch out later, but it’s absolutely critical that you get that core right first. If you’re not sure whether a given piece of material directly supports that core? It probably doesn’t - lose it.

3. Outline, outline, outline.

Resist the urge to just leap in and start writing. You can note stuff down for later if you want (see point 5, below), but if you just start writing, at best you’re going to end up with a disorganised mess; at worst, you’ll become irresolvably stuck when you run into some critical aspect of your premise that you haven’t thought about yet.

Good organisation is much more important in game rules than it is in prose fiction, so effort spent here pays off huge later. A good game outline should ideally drill all the way down to what you plan to talk about in each individual paragraph. Use headings and subheadings if you have to. When you’re finished, you should be able to start writing your game simply by picking a portion of your outline and filling it in.

4. Give yourself deadlines.

This is the corollary of point 1, above. Even within a work of limited scope, it’s easy to iterate forever and never get anywhere, or to turn things over and over in your head without ever committing it to writing until all your enthusiasm for it dribbles away. Your first RPG should take no more than a couple of weeks to write; make time to work on it every day during that span.

(In fact, writing a complete RPG of this scope in a single day is an exercise that a lot of designers use to keep themselves sharp. You can Google “24 hour RPG” for numerous examples. Do not attempt to do this as your very first game, of course - it’s basically hard mode game design.)

5. Take notes.

Once you’re in the game-creating headspace, neat ideas on how to address various bits of your premise will be occurring to you at all hours of the day. If you have school or a day job, it’ll often be at times when you can’t drop everything to chase after the idea in question. You may be confident that you’ll remember it for later. You will not. Keep a notebook or a tablet on hand so that you can jot stuff down as it occurs to you.

6. Be a dictator.

Don’t be afraid to tell people how they ought to play the game. Some folks will tell you that this is bad design. These people are wrong. All game rules encode assumptions about how the game ought to be played; some games are merely more honest about it than others. You’ll save yourself a heap of trouble by being one of the honest ones.

7. Beta readers. Lots of ‘em.

This ties into the preceding point: as you write, you’re going to be making a vast array of assumptions about how the game ought to be played and how the rules are supposed to be executed. Many of these assumptions will seem so obvious to you that it wouldn’t occur to you to write them down, or will be so deeply embedded in your thinking about the game that you don’t even realise you’re making them.

The ability to step back and go “okay, what assumptions am I making about the player’s understanding and prior knowledge, and are these assumptions warranted?” is a skill. Unless you’re a technical writer or something in your day job, you do not yet possess this skill. The upshot is that your first attempt at a game (and your second, and your third…) will be incomprehensible to anyone who’s not you.

This doesn’t mean you’re a bad game designer. It does, however, mean that you need to get as many sets of eyes on your work as possible, and you need to respect and seriously consider the questions they ask, no matter how obvious the answers feel to you.

8. Never throw anything away.

You’re going to have many ideas that you can’t find a place for in your game. You’re going to have many more that you end up cutting because they turn out not to directly support your premise (see point 2, above). Don’t just delete them - keep a master document of your of unused ideas, preferably on Google Drive or another cloud-hosted service so it’s always accessible and impossible to accidentally lose.

Not only are you accumulating a store of material for future projects, but emotionally it’ll be a lot easier to give material you’ve put a lot of thought and work into the axe because it’s not working out in your current game when you can tell yourself that you’re not getting rid of it for good: you’re just not using it right now.

Been messing around with ideas for enamel pins.. even though I could never afford to get these made into pins ;-; I will, however, be making them into prints, stickers and possibly patches - as well as continuing the series with other animal skulls! All will be made available through my etsy shop in the near future :0

The skulls are a tiger, chinese water deer and a bearded dragon.

These are also transparent, ooooo!

GET OUT by Francesco Francavilla
24"x36" Screen Print, Edition of 250
Printed by D&L Screenprinting  - $50     

From the trailers I knew GET OUT was a movie that I had to go see as soon it was in the theaters. And I did, on its opening weekend. The movie was so good that I couldn’t think of anything else once back home. As I do for everything that I really, REALLY like, I decided to do a quick poster art for it, and went with a minimalist approach, trying to not spoil the movie for those who hadn’t seen it yet. I posted the art with my 2 thumbs up review on twitter and had director/writer Jordan Peele himself replying to the post and saying how much he loved the concept. Someone else suggested to turn this in a Mondo poster (given my relation with Mondo) and Peele said he was totally up for it. Of course Mondo was happy too cause they loved the movie as much as I did. So yeah, now you have this poster because of the movie being so good and the magic of social media that makes the world way smaller than it really is :)

These posters will be available at a random time today (5/23) on mondotees.com - follow @MondoNews feed on Twitter for the drop announcement.

Cheers,
FF

MONDO’s press release:
Jordan Peele’s GET OUT is an absolute gut punch of a film. Not only is it one of the best and most important movies to come out so far in 2017, we’d rank it among the top movies of the last several years. The film tells the story of an interracial couple, Chris and Rose, as they travel to Rose’s family estate to spend a weekend with her parents. Things get increasingly dark as the visit goes on and more sinister discoveries come to light about her family’s past.

We’re beyond excited to have two incredible posters available for the film by Francesco Francavilla and Jay Shaw, each rife with rich subtext, themes and imagery, available tomorrow in celebration of the home video release. Francesco’s poster features Chris trapped in the vast expanse of the sunken place, while Jay takes a visceral approach in illustrating themes touched upon in the film.

The fact that GET OUT was Jordan Peele’s directorial debut is all the more impressive and we absolutely cannot wait to see what other stories he has to share with the world. GET OUT is available on Blu-Ray/home video tomorrow and we highly recommend picking it up and watching it immediately.
