trollmonk can attest to how many times I’ve thought about doing some sort of graphics giveaway, but I always eventually chickened out because I was like ‘noBODY WANTS THIS STUFFF’ (or it would turn into a battle pet giveaway which would then be dropped because lbr none of my bpets are cool).  NOT THIS TIME THOUGH.  I really want to give back to you all in the only way I know how;  SO, without further ado

So which one of you was it?

Which one of you incompetent monkeys just woke up…and grabbed your own shit, and just…SLAPPED IT right on the fucking screen of your computer and sat there gazing at it for like, five hours before you had a light bulb go off in your head that…

           “OH MY GOSH! If our users can’t cut posts, they’ll love the
            web site even MORE!!! THIS IS GENIUS! GRAPHIC DESIGN
            IS MY FUCKING PASSION!!!”

If you guys can’t even run a website properly, I doubt you could even do something as simple as make a fucking sandwich. 

Hire some professionals if this is so hard for you. Thanks.

If you're still taking library meme asks, 10 and 22?

10. Favourite graphic novel.

Wandering son / Shimura Takako

I haven’t got the eyesight or spatial awareness to really get into graphic novels, but Wandering Son is utterly beautiful and I make an effort just because I care about the characters so much. The first volume was also made into a lovely, if slow-moving, anime. 

22. A recurring interest/theme.

Hmm. There’s a lot. And they all have fairly equal emphasis. So:

  • Dead greek dudes and people who talk about them. 
  • people called Njal (as told by Snorri)
  • ‘Classic Kidlit’ (Jean Webster. Susan Coolidge, Francis Hodgson Burnett, Louisa May Alcott,, Joanna Spyri, and into authors shaped by the end of WW2–so stuff by Eva Ibbsotson, Diana Wynne Jones, K. M. Peyton, Ruby Ferguson…) 
  • Female driven fantasy (notable mentions to: Tamora Pierce, Sharon Shinn, Juliet Marrilier and Isobelle Carmody in particular) 
  • Animal stories (James Herriot complete works; Ruby Ferguson’s Jill books*, all the Gerald Durrell…)
  • Urban Fantasy - Now With Ladies: Tom Pollock’s novels; Seanan Macguire’s Toby Daye series; Max Gladstone’s Craft Sequence
  • Old Greek Poetry
  • Angry Lesbian Poetry
  • Nicola Goddamn Griffith
  • Dictionaries! (Oxford Concise, Attic Greek, Homeric Greek, Ionic Greek, Latin, Old Norse, French)
  • A Shitton of David Crystal
  • New Who
  • Review books that were terrible and  I can’t get rid of them… christ I want that part of my shelf back. 
  • More yuri than is good for me

but more specifically:

  • Swordfighting Ladies and Roses. (plus some other flowers)

Every bit of me is devoted to love and art. And I aspire to try to be a teacher to my young fans who feel just like I felt when I was younger. I just felt like a freak. I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m trying to liberate them, I want to free them of their fears and make them feel that they can make their own space in the world.

Played Inquisition, and so far been blown off by the amazing graphic. Praise PS4, the views are just amazing. Also so far I’m liking the game, I especially love how they bring many characters from the previous DA games!

When I saw Varric I just get so nostalgic over my Hawke (I should really replay DA2 some time), and then I met an NPC in Haven named Threnn, who said that she used to work under Loghain. She praised him highly and lamented the fact that now he’s a Grey Warden, and told me that he should have stayed in Ferelden. I’m impressed that he still has so many people who are loyal to him after all these time. Kudos to Bioware for adding this kind of continuity too! I’m glad I transferred all my DA keep data to my DA:I world :D

So I made an elven mage, thanks to Naomi I managed to choose a name for her, Alcyone :D I really like Solas a lot so far, HE’S SUCH A NERD and my Inquisitor managed to flirt with him already lmao. I just can’t with his nerdery over the fade, my Lavellan obviously impressed by his knowledge so far, but here I am just muttered please not the fade again please not the fade again LMAO, but seems like the fade will be an important plot point this time. I think it’s just DA:O that makes me really traumatised with the fade, I remember in DA2 the fade actually not that bad :P

Also Cassandra is pretty awesome, I love when he just shut Chancellor Roderick up when he was being such a pain in the ass. Instant heart eyes from me, and I can’t stop laughing when she made (disgusted noises) when Varric tried ti flirt with a scout. You go Cassandra XD

Haven’t played much as I waited pretty long just now to download the updates and it’s really late already sigh, but I really can’t wait to play more!

“I  was told, “Oh, she’s a fan favorite,” and I was like, “Oh, that’s nice!” But, I still don’t know what it means. I’m beyond grateful, and it’s awesome. I love her. I’m just glad other people love her, too. That’s huge for me, to be able to help create or to symbolize a strong, intelligent woman that people like. I think that’s really important.” EBR on portraying Felicity Smoak

Killian i’m not…a tearful goodbye kiss person. But maybe just this once.

(so this is my first drawing attempt using a graphics tablet, i’d love any thoughts/critique you want to give.)  (◡‿◡✿)

I’m learning how to make watercolor edits so i I’d love it if you all reblogged & tagged or replied to this with yr selfie and photography tags. if ur ok with me putting urs on instagram, pls tag with ‘instagram ok’ and ur username on ig if u want me to tag u there and tag with ‘rectangular’ or ‘square’ if u have a preference for one or the other! if not i’ll just go with what looks good!

I love doing ‘everyone is ladies’ fancasts but it also really reinforces how much narrower standards of beauty are for actresses. It’s amazing to take a cast of men with very different kinds of faces, craggy and smooth, handsome and not, big noses and small, different ears, different jaws, and turn that into actresses who even to me look very similar.

…..and the pool gets even narrower once you step outside of white actresses.

It’s not like this is new information to anyone, but every time I start making graphics again it bothers me a little more.

alright !! so as some of you may know, i really like making themes. unfortunately, i CANNOT make themes for pietro and change them every single day, and most of the time, my inspiration isn’t even FOR pietro.

so i have a proposal for you lovely followers! this is a bit like a forever starter call ( which i will get around to posting eventually ). basically by LIKING this post, you give permission for me to do the following:

  • make theme backgrounds and possibly codes for you
  • make promo banners for you
  • make icon packs for you
  • make other graphics for you about your muse or our muses (given that we’ve interacted long enough) and tag you in them

and basically drop random edits upon you without warning. you do NOT have to use or reblog anything which i make for you; it’s just a way for me to practice my photoshopping skills and to have an excuse to make things with a purpose — it feels much better to stamp a URL onto a graphic when i’m finished instead of just letting it go unused.

you do NOT have to be mutual in order to like this post, but a follow is always nice ^^

Artists pls read

I just want to let y'all know that I’m a freelance graphic designer and I’ve been doing graphic design for a VERY LONG time now and if you guys ever want to start doing art commissions but you don’t really know how to make a commissions graphic to show your work and prices, I would GLADLY make a super awesome one for you (completely for free of course).

You can just message me and let me know you need one and email me your pictures of your art and I’ll make you one. If you want any specific colors or whatever just let me know.

I honestly just love helping out artists any way I can. :)

Oh man, I can’t believe I hit my first big milestone!! I meant to make this earlier in the week but what can I say? I’m lazy.  So before I list off everyone I just wanted to say thank you to all my followers, especially the ones from way back when I was a glee blog, I’ve definitely gone through some changes, right?  But thank you to my new followers! I love all of you~
