It's all your fault, Roach. I started listening to Circle of Magic and now I can't stop. These soul/magic bonded baby mages have ruined me. Take responsibility.

When it comes to gay wizard babies it is every woman for herself. You’re on your own, toadfuck. 

Mycelium by Jess Schultz

Hey guys! So this Friday is the opening reception of Light Grey Art Lab’s show, “Macro and Micro: A Celebration of the Natural World”. Aaaand, I totally have a piece in it!

We were all separated into 4 categories: Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, and Everything Else. I’m in Vegetable and my piece is on mushrooms! (Technically mushrooms aren’t veggies, but shhh~) Mushrooms and other decomposers play an important role in the cycle of nutrients in our environment by breaking down organisms and keeping the soil fertile so other plants can grow. They are also delicious. Just sayin’.

In the past, Gnomes were commonly associated with mushrooms, so I added Ms. Gnome in to give a sense of scale and to make the illustration more interesting.

If any of you guys are interested, my print is on sale over in Light Grey Art Lab’s Gallery Shop, here: http://lightgreyartlabshop.bigcartel.com/product/mycelium-by-jessica-schultz

Haha, I’m still kinda freaking out that I got to be in this show with so many talented artists!

Process images for my last three senior-project pieces. I’m always interested when artists share their process, so I thought I’d share mine. You can see that a few things change from sketch to final, but the big idea is still there. Doing the lineart is the most fun and meditative for me. I like to put on an audiobook and kinda just let my mind wander at this step. For the colors, though, I need to concentrate. That step is usually the most frustrating, but easily the most satisfying when I am finished.

Hey, all~

So I realized that I forgot to post the final versions of my last senior project pieces! The project was to mix textile design with narrative and the result was a series of pocket squares, each telling a story.
The top-most one is the most obvious - it shows the progression of the seasons. The second one is of the Monkey King and his humble beginnings. And the third one is the Tale of Princess Kaguya.

8. Share something you did in fandom that you’re embarrassed about.

Besides the fact that I am forever embarrassed by all the art I draw - it’s a natural state by now, it doesn’t even matter.

But ohmygod. I mean besides having a whole bunch of Naruto/FMA OCs who like dated all of team 7/the mains of FMA, I totally remember having a Kurama v Inuyasha fight with one of my friends. I was on the Inuyasha side, to my eternal shame. Kurama is totally better.
