‘it was quiet. TOO quiet. so quiet everyone heard the fart.’

I know its super crappy quality but I needed to gif that scene coz happy smiling Aaron is everything!!!

dennis is 15 when he sneaks into dee’s cosmetic bag. he picks nude and neutral shades because he’s not ready for bold colors, not just yet. he stares at his reflection in the bathroom mirror thoughtfully, contemplating his features - he’s always known that there’s potential there for something more, but he’s always been too afraid. makeup is for girls, he’s been told this all his life.  

his fingers tremble as they press against his cheeks and swipe across his lips. it’s still the same reflection staring back at him when he’s done, but for the first time, dennis feels a little bit more whole.


some free-hand portraits i did for The Swaingels last night!! i did them all one after the other

i’ve been watching a lot of grayscale-to-color process videos from other artists lately, and they’ve inspired me a ton! and thanks to all of my portrait practice, my face shading has improved a bunch!

also N got the feature spot just because i really like how his turned out

Clean Me, Daddy | 30.03.17
  • Phil: "Why aren't you cleaning us?" said Candice. Oh...
  • Dan: Excuse me?
  • Phil: Last time I did a live show, I accidentally ordered 300 cleaning wipes.
  • Dan: I know. I've seen them.
  • Phil: So, you can have the honour of cleaning them.
  • Dan: Excuse me?
  • Phil: The webcam. It's a bit grubby, so you know give them a clean. Give them a wipe. Someone just said "clean me, daddy".
  • Dan holds the cleaning wipe with regret. Phil burst out laughing and Dan starts speaking in a high pitched voice.
  • Dan: Yeah, I read that too. What is this?
  • Phil: It wasn't this weird when I did it!
  • Dan: There's a section of your live show where...
  • Phil: No, it's not a section!
  • Dan: ... you clean them?
  • Phil: No, I'm just saying we're slightly blurry and they'd like to see us in 1080pHD quality.
  • Dan: No, you planned this. It's a section where you clean the audience. Now everyone is saying "clean me".
  • Phil: They liked it. Just do it! I'll make the sound effect.
  • Dan: There's dozen of tens of thousands of people saying "clean me" right now.
  • Phil: Dan, clean them. Clean them!
  • Dan: Jesus Christ.
  • Phil: Do it! It's what you signed up to do.
  • Dan suppressing a regretful chuckle, Phil grinning so damn wide.
  • Dan: Oh my God, stop! The chat! Frick. Even the YouTube comments are going to be ruined. Oh, whatever you fricking..
  • Dan wipes the webcam while Phil makes the sound effect.
  • Phil: That's the noise of the cleaning wipe. Look how clear we are now though. My pores are here.
  • Dan: And yet, I feel dirty.
