The Squidlys celebrate everyone’s birthday

((today is for @splatatattat / @thedaydreamingdragon and like… if I had to some up Tat in one word it would be “treasure”. That’s what this gal is, a treasure in our community. How is one person so talented in multiple facets, and incredibly fun, active, energetic, and not to mention so freakin’ good at the game.


I’m sure I speak for every one of us but for myself in particular; knowing and following Tat is an absolute joy and a privilege and seeing someone like her as apart of our community makes me really happy. Happy Birthday, dude.))

JANINE’S JAMMERS JOURNEY


Lee Squidly formed a squad with some chums from school; Pix Inkkin, Saulma Squidtierrez, and Ty Tentam. They’re a team in Turf Battles and together they receive coaching from one of the greatest to ever play the game, Lee’s very own mom, Janine. There are some of their silly misadventures outside of Booyah Base.

Without destruction there is no creation… there is no change. – Oda Nobunaga

It was night in an unfamiliar part of Inkopolis, machines roared as they turned the metal in a scrap yard into metal alloys. A group of shell-headed inklings and octolings walked in wearing robes of violet and navy blue. They recently detected an enemy enter what they called The Square where their influence was strong, but not interfering. A metsuke managed to detect them, but the men that were sent to apprehend the enemy was caught along with another inkling.

The Squidlys celebrate everyone’s birthday

((today we’re celebrating none other than @asktheseastars. Well– where do I start? While the two of us  aren’t as close as could be, they’re undeniably one of the funnest, friendliest, and dare I say freshest faces I’ve been privileged to meet in this fandom. They’re a serious knockout! A stupendous artist, a wonderful writer, and a seriously creative mind unlike any of I’ve ever met. I mean this completely; if they’re not in like, the Top 10 most recognized and beloved content creators in this fandom than we’ve seriously got a problem.


Either way, happy birthday my dude, I’m glad to have met you))

The Squidlys celebrate everyone’s birthday

((We’ve got two big ones I’m absolutely thrilled to bring to you all.


First up is @twelvetailedkitsune; someone I really wish I spoke to more because they’re an absolute darling and I have nothing, not a thing that’s bad that I can say about them. They’ve got an amazing sense of creativity and just has such a positive air about them. I’m happy whenever I see them.


Second is @agentis-zephirum; you might try and put up that act of being a sarcastic, pun making grump, but you can’t hide the fact that you’re a big cinnamon roll– and I’m glad to have met you. They’re one of the best people I’ve met through the medium of this game, hands down, and like– I could spend all day saying good things about them but we’ll be here forever))

(( @csnancesplatoon; they are such a good freakin’ kid, that’s about the short and sweet of it. The long and spicy of it, however; they’re such a wonderful presence here in this community. I love seeing all of the good hearted teenagers who enjoy this game and have a good time writing stories, creating art, really exploring their creativity that this game allows. This dude is top of my list of those good kids; I love seeing everything he creates and how much he’s able to do. You keep being you, you’re gonna be something great!))

“Score another victory for The Squidly Family; Freshest Inkling of the Decade from the 90′s, Janine Squidly and her son, Lee are unstoppable. Awww, that little guy sure loves his mom, and a victory selfie before the next match here at Family Turf Wars Day!”


This one also goes out to all the amazing moms out there, and the wonderful kids they raise, alone or otherwise. Remember one thing–


When you mean the world to her,

Let her know that she means the world to you.


Here’s another commission I got from the unbelievably talented michaelfay as part of his  SAVE MIKEY’S BUTT CAMPAIGN

#SAVEABUTTTODAY

I’m glad that he managed to reach his goal… or at the very least came relatively close to it, and I’m even more glad that I could be apart of it. I kind of wish, and asked that he would post it on his blog but I didn’t get a response about that. No big deal though, I know he’s a busy guy with lots to do so I won’t hold it against him– even if his greater popularity than mine would’ve gotten a lot more attention for this. Also asking more than once would make me look like a needy douche. 

Anyway, I love this picture so much because it encapsulates everything that I’ve tried to accomplish from a character building standpoint with the Squidly’s in a sweet, simple, heartfelt little package. I hope you all enjoy it to.

the first draft of Part 4 of The Charge Shot is finished

it took forever– but I’m nearly ready to post it.


Chapter 2 of Who Wants To Live Forever starring Princess Mahi is 2 scenes away from completion as well.


Oiye,,, well I’ll be excited to post them and start work on a few smaller projects to wind down.


I wanna make another Vinny & Lee, another Janine’s Jammers adventure, and a special little something I call… How Lee Squidly Got His Groove

theanontrain  asked:

What would Lee's obsession with Callie stem from? The first time he saw her perform?

Janine: “Ohh my Lee has been in love with Callie ever since he was a little Squishy. The Squid Sisters have been performing for many many years so they’ve been a big part of my son’s life for so long. I suppose he’s always felt such a strong connection to Callie; she’s so upbeat, positive, and so strong willed. He tells me she doesn’t let anybody or anything make her feel like garbage, and she follows her heart no matter what.


My Lee feels things very strongly; so the kind of love and admiration he feels for her is far more than just some celebrity crush. As his mother I should probably tell him he should keep perspective and yet– I can’t tell him otherwise because of how earnest his feelings are.”

It’s only been a year in the makings of nail lacquer Floss Gloss LLC started by 23-year-old Coast Guard brat Janine Lee of Coronado, California, and already she sees promise in her passion. Getting ready for the Floss Gloss Pro Nail Lacquer initial launch scheduled for July 2012, Lee shares the process, goals and growth of her business as a designer and CEO.

“I’ve always been art inclined,” says Lee who keeps a stash of nail polish along side her nail bible the ‘Klutz Nail Art Book’. She started painting nails while attending California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2008 where she then met her business partner and Co-Founder of Floss Gloss Ltd., Aretha Sack, along with fellow member and Co-Founder Monica Garza.

“There was an instant click and we started our company, Floss Gloss LLC, in 2011,” says Lee who continues to bartend fulltime on the side.

The upcoming Floss Gloss collection, located in San Francisco, will pull inspiration from 1970’s interior architecture, tracing back to Lee’s adoration for classic pieces.

“Floss Gloss for us is what we found lacking in the market. We started mixing colors and selling bottles in the painting studios at school,” says Lee: and that’s the hustle that sparked the brand. “Aretha sees color like no one I ever met. We just want girls like us everywhere to get the colors they want with superior quality.”

Floss Gloss continues tracking attention through social media like Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, intending on bringing awareness to the debut of their nail lacquer soon available for purchase online. And since Floss Gloss is a significantly indie-brand, it’s going to be a challenge against professional salon based formula companies like Ginger+Liz, Models Own, Butter London, OPI, Essie, and China Glaze who Lee perceives as competition. But the robust go-getter, Lee is willing to press forward.

“I keep up with trends and would consider myself fashion forward. I went to school for fashion design and try to stay abreast with what’s launching, what’s in and out. For personal use, I normally stick to my guns. I have my favorite brands for quality nail art application and I don’t mind using Floss Gloss Pro Nail Lacquer reject samples,” says Lee.

When it comes to Floss Gloss nail lacquer Lee stands behind her upcoming top coat which she says is to be better than Seche Vite, and is made without formaldehyde.

According to a report by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), there are nail polishes commonly found in California salons falsely advertising to be free of toxin chemicals but in fact contain toxins toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde, linked to the development of asthma.

“I wouldn’t put anything out without truly standing behind it as a nail addict and living in the Bay Area is very eco-conscious. It is very easy to find ‘organic' or vegan brands like Zoya and SpaRitual. However, as a person who recently spent the last year building a nail lacquer through a private label manufacturer, I have a hard time saying organic. To me nail polish can be eco-conscious as in 3 free, no animal testing, less waste impact through manufacturing choices for example, but printing the word organic on a bottle of nail polish seems like an oxymoron. It’s still chemically based,” says Lee.

Starting a business is tough, but Lee is willing to take a risk in hopes of bringing a helpful service to the nail industry.

“If you see yourself or imagine yourself doing something 'bigger’ than what you are doing now, try it out. Talk to people, network and reach out to your community. Stay positive and know it’s going to be hard,” says Lee who sees success as doing something with love and goals set forth.

“It’s reaching those goals, being happy however financially, aesthetically and sustainable as possible.”
