and look! it delivered!

irlbop  asked:

What would you feel are the best traits/tools to have if you want to get a foot in the door of the comics industry, particularly when you're a WOC when the field appears to be dominated by white men?

I can answer this question as a publisher and someone who is on the hiring end of things.  Publishers are looking for artists who are professional, who take notes well, and who deliver pages on time.  In my short time as a publisher in comics, I have seen quite a few female creators’ careers really take off, and it’s not just because of their talent, but just as importantly because of their very strong professionalism and work ethic.  Professionalism encompasses strong communication skills, a positive attitude, an ability to collaborate and take notes, and a commitment to delivering work on time. These things may sound obvious, but you wouldn’t believe how many artists have talent but lack professionalism.  In many cases, this professionalism often outweighs talent when someone on the hiring end is evaluating candidates for an open position.  In my first-year publishing comics, I had a 50% artist turnover rate because the artists I hired quit in the middle of a job or consistently handed in work late.  This made it impossible for me to build my business because my production schedule, print dates, and distribution dates were constantly shifting as a result.  From pencilers, to inkers, to colorists, to letterers, to editors who get the book ready for print, to marketers, to sales reps on the distribution end, creating comics requires an assembly line of people who work tirelessly to get books into stores, and if you have one person in the equation who doesn’t take delivery dates seriously, all of that comes into jeopardy.  My advice to anyone trying to make a career in comics is to develop great communication and collaboration skills so that everyone feels safe in the process. Trust me – if you do this, word will spread like fire about you, and you will have a very long career!

How do you get her to leave?

Does your pearl always walk next to you?

You are so patient with her. How do you do it?

Do keep up, pearl.

i mean, throughout history so many things change but i like how there are so many things that we as modern viewers just relate to effortlessly? whether it’s a 3000 year old burnt cooking pot or that sumerian clay tablet where a customer complains about the wrong grade of copper being delivered. like you look at this thing that is almost 4000 years old and ‘aw, it’s just like that bad amazon review i left!’ or that roman soldier’s letter where he’s basically ‘british weather sucks balls can u pls send me warm socks’. like, underneath the hugely different ways people lived back then, their massively different beliefs, the fact they lived under long-gone empires and spoke dead languages…there’s still always that thread of continuity because it’s just so human. i love it.

Thank you, Colin Farrell

because whatever Johnny Depp now does to Gellert Grindelwald, we will always have his portrayal of the character.

And he was everything I hoped, Grindelwald would be: passionate, scary in a subtle way, devoted to his cause yet terribly misguided.

And look at his face, when he delivers the “What makes Albus Dumbledore so fond of you?” line! That is the face of someone, who still cares, who wonders, why he and Albus had to part. He is not indifferent to Dumbledore! Which raises my hopes for actual, textual grindeldore to unknown hights!

Farrell managed to make Grindelwald a person, so whatever happens now, we will always have this!

I’m too shook to come up with a title

GUYS. GUYS. It’s happening. It happened! HOW ARE Y’ALL FEELING? I KNOW I’VE NEVER FELT MORE ALIVE. It’s like I’ve just reached some kind of fujo milestone…I will never be the same. 

Since I’ve pulled my face out of my keyboard I thought I’d meta a little about what’s going and just flail over some of my favorite things in this. OK? Okaaaay. *fingerguns*

First of all, Doumeki is continuously more gentle than Yashiro can handle and that’s cracking Yashiro into little pieces. Case and point:

Every chapter has a plethora of New Yashiro Faces and once again, Yoneda Kou delivers. Yashiro just looks so damn lost and vulnerable and scared, but there’s Doumeki, reaching out to touch him, to reassure and cup his cheek.

Also, I just lovelovelove that they face each other during sex:

Yashiro looks almost happy here, look how he hangs on to Doumeki. And Doumeki’s face against Yashiro’s neck I’m gonna sue these panels for my death.

Then Doumeki takes his pants off and they change postion.

Doumeki’s back is divine. And remember that while Yashiro has passed out and slept a few times, no one in the fandom has seen Doumeki sleep in the last 50 chapters. So we get Cute Sleeping Doumeki Face this time around.

While Doumeki is passed out, the little cracks in Yashiro finally blow wide open and he goes over his past. This one panel was masterful:

His uncle is a black shadow, as he should be, and Yashiro is so young and pure. The contrast of light/dark just stabs you right through, along with Yashiro crying.

When was the last time Yashiro cried? At the end of Tadoyoedo, which relates nicely to the cover page for chapter 23.  

And why is Yashiro crying? Because he’s starting to feel. He has shut down all his emotions, all his trauma, so that he can function over the years and the love that Doumeki has stirred in him is bringing that to life again. It never goes away, it just waits until you deal with it. Plus, you can’t just choose which feelings to feel, if you want to feel one then you get to feel them all. Also, Yashiro is starting to realize just how fucked up everything was that happened to him. He jokes about it, yes, but to really process it is hard, and he never has until now.

Honestly I’m so thankful Yashiro has Doumeki to love him, he needs someone to treasure him and worship him and treat him like he should’ve been treated from the start. And Doumeki loves him regardless of everything he’s seen, regardless of what Yashiro’s done to turn him away, so he’s there for the long run and that kind of stablilty and safety is exactly what Yashiro needs to begin healing.

Finally, the panel that really killed me was when Doumeki leaned down to kiss Yashiro. It’s so tender I will never forgive Yoneda Kou for ruining my life. We should all form a support group for the feels we have after this.

Tonight’s stream result ❤

Mercy was requested and Mercy was delivered B| She ended up looking like Barbie hehe


During the stream, @hausofax mentioned she looks like she is at a wedding reception.. I wonder whose wedding though O.O

I imagine Pharah is at the same event in last night’s drawing, probably just woke up, put on the first thing she found on the floor and flew to the wedding

Gintama (銀魂)

Okita Sougo and Hijikata Toushirou dress in Santa Claus costumes to deliver gifts, but still look completely untrustworthy! This new holiday poster art comes from the January issue of Animage Magazine (Amazon US | eBay), illustrated by animation director Yumi Nakamura (中村ユミ).

His eyes looked upon the screen in horror as he watched the little blue bar make its journey across the screen, signaling the text was on it way.

“No, please no.” His voice cried out as his fingers scrambled around on the phone, desperately trying to stop the message from being sent.

But it was too late, it was delivered.

He looked upon the sent messaged mortified, frozen to his spot on the bed.
His heart thumped loudly in his chest as he quickly sat up from his seated position. He threw down the phone in his hands, he couldn’t bare to look at it, to have his eyes laid upon his mistake.

To know that he sent you that…

Sent you a sext.
