mackenzie does art

So four of my friends are signing their first lease for their first apartment tomorrow, and I was trying to think of a housewarming gift and I’ve decided to paint them something. It’s gonna be a 22x24 painting of Cthulhu in the Madonna and Child pose, but in his arm instead of Jesus is gonna be their potato shaped family cat Arya, and he’s gonna have a giant D20 levitating over his open palm in his other hand with some smaller dice orbiting around it, and he’s gonna be looking lovingly down at the cat.

I haven’t done a big painting project like this in two or three years so I’m excited bc I’ve grown a lot as an artist since then and I know it’s gonna be cool!!

claude almost made me cry again so

AU WHERE EVERYTHING IS NICE THE ZONES ARE REBUILT AND FUNCTIONING JUST AWESOMELY AND ZACKRY IS MADE AN ‘HONORARY’ PRINCE OF THE ZONES AND AS HE GETS OLDER HE’LL ASSUME HIS PRINCELY “DUTIES” WHICH ARE TO WALK AROUND THE ZONES IN HIS LITTLE CROWN AND MAKE SURE HIS 'SUBJECTS’ ARE HAPPY 

AND IF SOMEONE IS FEELIN A LITTLE DOWN

HE’LL MAKE THEM A POMPOM CHICKEN TO CHEER THEM UP.

BOW DOWN TO YOUR FUCKING ADORABLE LITTLE PRINCE

[text, left side - “it’s astounding, isn’t it? Some kind of transcendental love that lives in the depth of your gut. A completely different feeling than romantic love, somewhere near the line of familial love – but more intense, more powerful because these people CHOSE you, you found them and they found you and STAYED with you, and you chose them and stayed with them and it’s beautiful, it’s more than human, it’s transcendental, and it’s holy.

I have friends in this place, this universe, on this [cont’d on top of right page] lonely little planet drifting through the emptiness of the cosmos.”

Mom got me this little notebook for Christmas, so I’ve been carrying it around and jotting down little musings. This is the first one that had a doodle come pouring out of the pen along with the text.
