my major in college was coloring

9.17.17 

Since my manager is in the hospital I didn’t have work today. I got up early and went to Target with my best friend, and then we spent the rest of the day studying in my apartment. We studied quietly and alone for a little while until my roommates woke up and came into the living room to do homework with us. Even though our kitchen table got pretty cluttered, it was kind of refreshing to be able to sit back and see all the productivity. 

We started planning a spring break trip to Maine and somewhere along the way we ended up sharing stories of good winters and sledding incidents from when we were younger. It was a really good day, and I was glad to have extra time to get work done. 

Last week I didn’t work out as much as I wanted to and I didn’t eat very healthy. Even though I was already down emotionally, not maintaining my health didn’t help with my mood either. This week I’m hoping to get back on track and find my balance again.  

Becky Prim Questions


Hey guys! I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the Becky Prim pilot, so I’ll do my best to clear the air and answer a few of them:

-Is Becky a ghost in the series?

Nah.  I’ve written an epilogue for the pilot that resets the narrative playing field… more or less.  The series wouldn’t even necessarily be strictly supernatural- but It WOULD follow Becky’s character and the obsession of adolescent triviality- to whatever dark territory that entails…

Fun fact:  this pilot episode was actually written as a season finale, but it was my favorite story idea (at the time), so I went with it.


What programs did I use to create the pilot?

The drawings were done in Photoshop and Storyboard Pro- save for a few scanned images drawn on paper.  Megan Boyd did a little After Effects video magic for the trippy-bench-hell-mindfuck at the end.  All voices were recorded using garage band on my ancient macbook from college.  I edited everything in Premiere.  It was… a laborious culmination to say the least.

God lookit this shit:


-What’s Ello’s accent?

Ello’s character is inspired (and voiced) by my friend, Shan Wu, who is from Singapore. She’s awesome. Here’s a gif of her flipping the bird in ‘Spring Breakers (2012)

Yes, that’s really her.


Will I Kickstart Becky Prim? 

Eh- no need at this point.  I feel a fully colored, animated version of the same pilot would be redundant- since everyone already knows what happens.


-Have I pitched Becky Prim to any major networks?

Well, you guys were kindof my test audience.  I wanted to share it publicly so I could gage the general reaction and see if it was worth pursuing.  So as of now, I’m planning a formal pitch strategy.  Becky Prim is actually one of several show ideas I’ve been developing- so I’m excited to see where this train is headed.

It’s time for otterlogic’s annual August Carlos Redraw! Year number 5!! 

This has been a wild year… I finished my first year of college, met so many wonderful people, decided to major in Communication Arts, and started my sophomore year today! 

Summary: My understanding of anatomy and color theory have improved! I’ve also made the full transition to Photoshop– haven’t used SAI in almost a year. This most recent Carlos is an ink drawing that I colored in Photoshop b/c I’m VERY into inking right now haha

Thanks to all of you who’ve stuck with me over the years, even though I don’t post as regularly as I used to. Your support means so much to me <3

[8/21/17]

Definitely more colorful bujo spread, but today was my first day back at school.

Gotta say, it was one of the least memorable days of my life :’) If any of you guys started school, how was yours? Majority of my friends left for college, so it was definitely weird not seeing them in the hallways.

Welcome to the next post in my university advice series! I’m gonna give you some tips on choosing your college major, cause I have truly been through it:

  • Think about how/what you did in high school before you choose your major. By this I mean what classes did you do well in? Which ones did you actually enjoy? What clubs did you participate in? If you’re planning on being a math major but the only C’s on your entire transcript are in math classes, that’s not a good idea (@myself). If you enjoyed your government classes and debate club, consider something like poli sci. Going to college doesn’t mean you’re an entirely different person; you’re going to enjoy the same things and be bad at the same things. Take this into consideration when choosing your major.
  • Don’t be afraid to go in undecided. So many of my classmates in high school didn’t know what they wanted to do before going to school. Then I got to uni and no one knew what they wanted to do there either. Going in undecided is honestly way better than declaring a major, doing it for a year, deciding you hate it, and then having a year’s worth of useless credits (again, @myself). Go in, take some general requirements, take a couple electives in things you find interesting, and you’ll eventually figure out what you want to major in. Don’t stress about it too much. I promise there will be hundreds of other students who are undecided, too.
  • DON’T CHOOSE YOUR MAJOR BASED ON WHAT YOU THINK WILL MAKE MONEY OR WHAT YOUR PARENTS WANT YOU TO DO. Everyone says this, and I heard it a million times before I went to school, yet I still ignored this advice. Story time: at the beginning of high school, I was planning on going to a school where I could major in songwriting. My parents made it clear that that wasn’t going to be a lucrative choice at all, and various people planted the idea in my head that I should do something in engineering, especially since women of color are so underrepresented in that field. I took AP comp sci in senior year and decided I would just do that. If I couldn’t do what I truly wanted, I didn’t really care what I did instead, I thought I might as well do what makes money. Computer science is basically a few classes short of a math major, and I had spent the past six years complaining about how much I hated math. My first semester of college, I failed both calculus (a calculus class I had already taken in high school, mind you) and gen chem and got put on academic probation. My second semester, I retook calculus and passed with a D, passed my second lab science with a D, and only passed the intro computer science class with a C. I struggled with every assignment, every test, no matter how many hours I studied or professors I spoke to, I couldn’t do well. I spent a good chunk of my freshman year more depressed than I have ever been, and anxious about getting kicked out of school. It took a visit to my doctor to discover that STEM was not meant for me. In my heart, I knew that, but I thought I could push through to get my degree. But what would’ve happened then? I would’ve gotten a job I hated and been just as miserable. Basically, there’s no way that this will end well. Please choose your major based on what you’re passionate about. No matter how hard you try, you can’t make yourself love something you hate. Even if you excel academically, you’re setting yourself up for more unhappiness. It doesn’t matter how much money you have if you’re miserable. Please trust me on this. 
  • There’s nothing wrong with changing your major. Tbh, changing your major is great. You’re paying all this money to attend university, you deserve to study what you want to study. If you’re like me and discovered that your current major isn’t for you, change it as soon as possible. Don’t push it off and think “it’ll get better!” because before you know it, it’ll be senior year and you’ll either have to finish what you started or stay in school another two years just to graduate. I know it’s scary at first, but your mind changes! I swore to myself i would never change my major, and now it’s only my second year and I’ve transferred to a completely different school in my university to major in a completely different field. You can take a couple classes in the field before officially changing your major to make sure it’s for you. And if you change your major and still hate it, guess what? You can change it again! You can change your major as many times as you want. Many people in the work force have jobs in fields that have nothing to do with their degree, so it’s not like your major is a determining factor for the rest of your life anyway. Literally all of my friends who are about to graduate have both been on academic probation and changed their major at at least one point; one just changed his major during his fourth year. The point here is that nothing is permanent and change is going to have to be embraced if you decide college is for you.
  • People are going to judge you, especially if you’re in the humanities or arts. The reactions I got when I told people I was a computer science major versus the reactions I get now when I tell people I’m a gender studies major with an italian minor are so vastly different it’s ridiculous. People used to be so proud and impressed of me. Now when I tell people what I study, they can’t even hide their confusion and judgement. It’s so awful. I constantly get asked, “what are you going to do with that?” “how are you going to make any money?” “what job opportunities are in that field?”. The answer is always that I don’t know yet! I didn’t know when I was a comp sci major either, yet no one asked me then, because STEM professions are seen by our society as more valuable. All i know is that I want to help people. Whether that be through policy, law, psychology, non-profits, even my music, that’s what I want and that’s what I’m going to do. News flash, people! There’s no guarantee of a job no matter what field you’re in. There’s plenty of unemployed people with engineering degrees. Even on campus, people in STEM fields tend to be condescending and look down to us in humanities. I can’t even imagine the crap that art majors get. You have to learn to ignore the looks, the questions, and the sly comments, cause you’ll get a lot of them. Understand that what you’re doing is just as valid and important as anyone else. If it’s what you want to do, it’s inherently super cool!
  • I understand everyone can’t take my advice on this, and I’m sorry. Obviously some people don’t have the freedom to choose whatever they want to study. I have friends whose parents have threatened to literally cut them off if they don’t stay pre-med. Sometimes factors are outside of your control and that really sucks. What i want to say to you is that, again, nothing is permanent. Someday you’ll be financially independent, living alone, and won’t have to rely on your parents. Their opinions won’t matter. Even if you had to get a degree in mechanical engineering or bio, you don’t have to pursue that. At least not forever. You really just have to look at the light at the end of the tunnel. Your major in college does not define you or your future. 

I hope this maybe helped ease some of your worries concerning college majors! Remember what you want is what’s most important. Post on deck: advice on surviving orientation week (including move-in day and first day of classes)!

I had a lot of stationery shopping done (from art friend then Muji then daiso ) hmm but this morning I got some time to make my own notes for color theory class (before the class hoho) and I decided to try out the fineliners, the colors are so pretty. Also that’s a look of my desk. Yes messy 😝

About the cornrows thing...

It really was never about the hair.

Originally posted by mtv

The core of Amandla’s discussion about cultural appropriation had barely settled on America’s consciousness, much less our subconsciousness before this happened…..

and then swiftly this happened.

This “conversation” between 16 year old Stenberg and the now 18 year old Jenner caused a huge uproar. Immediately Amandla not only was accused of being a race baiter and of being the stereotypical “angry black girl” she also became Andy Cohen’s “jackhole of the day” for her counter of Kylie’s cornrows. Many people were astounded that this situation was all about hair. Anyone should be allowed to wear their hair in any fashion they want. Even the styles that have been traditionally worn by black women and girls for decades. The styles that have been worn traditionally by black women and girls for decades, primarily for function, secondarily for fashion. The styles didn’t seem to be on anyones radar or worthy of praise until Miley,or Iggy, Kendall Jenner started wearing them.

 When Amandla Stenberg called out Kylie Jenner’s cultural appropriation many came to her defense. Cries of: shes young (she had allegedly been in a relationship with a now 25 year old man since she was 16), “shes just trying to figure it out” the words of Justin Bieber, and that shes can do whatever she wants flooded the interwebs as the dispute between the girls became the highest trending hashtag.

I agree everyone should be allowed to wear their hair the way they want. A London boy in 2011 shouldn’t have been sent home because his cornrows were believed to be too closely associated with London’s gang culture. White children were also prevented from shaving their heads for fear of its association to skinheads.  

7 year old Tiana Parker should not have had to leave school because of her hair in 2013. She had attended her school for a year before her dreadlocks caused an issue.12 year old Vanessa VanDyke should not have been threatened with expulsion for wearing her hair in the natural form that grew out of her head. 

A Native American boy, 5 years old, was sent home on his first day of kindergarten because his traditional braids did not meet the required dress code for little boys. 

Okay…clearly the issue also lies in the school dress code policies. Policies that seem to make it very difficult for children of color or of other cultures to wear their hair in anyway that is different from their straight haired counterparts.  So no, Amandla’s comment was not a jab at Kylie but instead were the actions of a young woman trying to inform a privileged, young, soon to be adult celebrity with a massive fan base of impresionable individuals, to not be so careless and ignorant to the value that has historically been placed on hair and hairstyles by other cultures. It is possible to appreciate that culture without appropriating it.

  After these events I imagine that amandla would have had one last question:

What would America be like if we, as a society, defended the freedom of children of any and all color to be who they are the same way we defend  young girls/women, like Kylie Jenner, to do what they want? 

UPDATE

Vanessa was featured on the real 11/13/2015 and her Afro still looks amazing.

Lin-Manuel Miranda's Personal Plea for Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief (Guest Column)
Residents of the U.S. island territory "need supplies and resources just as badly as their fellow Americans in Texas and Florida," writes the 'Hamilton' creator, whose family was impacted by the devastating storm.

My cousin Daniela is studying to be a veterinarian. Her parents’ home in the hills of Vega Alta, Puerto Rico, is like a tiny animal sanctuary — two goats, some cats, several bunnies and birds, nine dogs (!) and a couple of horses. Her older sister Camila has been studying for the MCAT exam — she wants to be a doctor. Across the street is my Aunt Yamilla’s home, formerly the home of my grandparents, where my sister and I spent every summer as children. I remember when my grandfather Guisin was building it — at last, moving up to the peaceful hills after a life in town.

There’s no shortage of stories about the devastation experienced in my beloved Puerto Rico in the past week. From the children still searching for signs of their parents, to the families who’ve lost everything but one another, to those displaced from the only homes they’ve ever known — Hurricane Maria’s collision with Puerto Rico has been the most brutal in the island’s modern history, leaving a destroyed power grid and unprecedented destruction in its wake.

As Maria roared toward the island, my family in Puerto Rico braced for impact. They knew Abuelo Guisin’s wooden dream home — where I worked on new musicals during summer breaks from college — could not possibly withstand a major hurricane. For a time, my uncle’s concrete home across the street became Noah’s Ark, as my family sought refuge there, along with Daniela’s animal menagerie. In addition to the animals, my family quickly gathered the things that can’t be replaced: family photos and mementos colored with memories of generations of Mirandas. Needless to say, Camila’s MCAT exam has been indefinitely postponed.

A Story about the Tin Whistle

So at my old college, the first weekend every store in the town would have a sale. Being that it was primarily a music school there was a music store and so my roommate being a music major, wanted to go inside.

There was a five dollar bin and in the bin was a record with a coloring book of Frozen with it. I had to have it. It was disappointing to find that sheet music for a recorder didn’t work with it but tin whistle sheet music seemed to work. So technically it isn’t a tin whistle, it’s a recorder that is cheaply made. 

That’s not even where the story begins.

I loved the tin whistle and I learned how to play classics. One night after a night learning Hedwig’s Theme, I realized my window had been open. And someone had posted on Yik Yak about me. 

Being the ho for attention that I am I decided to sit in the window and play my tin whistle. The only songs I knew from memory at this point were Christmas Carols, so in Mid-October at 3 in the morning, I sat in my window and played Christmas carols for all the campus to hear. 

I did that many nights, and was Yik Yaks about many times. I also though, disturbed my RA many times, three times to be exact. And received a noise citation. At my old school when you apply to be an RA they look at your record to see what kind of person you are, if you have any citations.

The interviewer for this position had to look me in the eyes and ask me why I was playing Christmas Carols at ungodly hours of the night, three times. I told him that I did it a lot more than three times, but other students had found it entertaining.

Needless to say I didn’t get the position.

Reader’s POV

After pushing the infuriating Happy Lowman out of the way, I looked in the mirror in the hallway to check my hair and makeup before opening my door to find my date. He was actually very handsome to my surprise. I mean not that I think that Gemma had poor taste but he was really handsome with bright blue eyes, soft brown hair, and a very nice body. He was dressed nicely too in some nice jeans and a dark grey button down shirt.

“Y/N?” He asked softly.

“Yeah.” I nodded and smiled softly.

“You look absolutely stunning.” He breathed out while looking at me and it caused me to blush. “I’m Ben by the way. I’m sure Gemma never told you that.”

“No, she didn’t.” I chuckled and stepped out onto the porch, closing the door behind me.

“Well, she didn’t tell me much about you if that makes you feel better.” Ben told me.

“Yeah, a little bit. Makes me feel like we’re in the same boat.” I told him and he smiled softly at me.

“Are you ready to go?” He asked and held his hand out for me. I took his hand and he lead me to his car. I had to keep myself from walking funny as he did. I was also worried about Happy’s cum that I could feel coming down my legs, I situated them slightly to rub it away as much as I could anyways. I got into the passenger’s side and he shut the door and went to the driver’s side. He got in and drove us out of Charming to Oakland. He pulled up to a fancy italian restaurant and parked his car. We made our way inside and soon after a waiter was seating us at a table.

“This place is amazing.” I smiled as I looked around the place.

“I’m glad you like it. I asked Gemma what your favorite type of food was.” He admitted to me. “Once I knew it was italian then I started searching for the best italian place in Oakland.” A blush rose on my cheeks, Gemma definitely had good taste.

“Thank you, that’s really sweet.” I told him.

“No problem.” He smiled at me and then the waiter came to take our drink orders.

“Gemma, only told me that we were going on a date tonight.” I said when the waiter left. “Why don’t you tell me a bit about yourself?”

“Well, I am a single, 28 year old, Accountant.” He told me and I raised an eyebrow at him.

“No offense but how the hell do you know Gem?” I asked him and he chuckled at the question.

“My mom used to work with Luanna.” He said and my mind automatically made the connection. “They are still pretty good friends.”

“Oh! I’m sorry I didn’t mean to pry.” I said as I bit my lower lip in embarrassment.

“No, you are okay. I would’ve wondered the same thing.” He said with a soft smile on his face.

“Okay, Mr. Accountant, what else should I know about you?” I asked and the waiter came to get our food orders before Ben could respond.

“Hmmm, my favorite food is steak, favorite color is green, and my favorite movie is Dead Poet Society.” He said. “I don’t care much for needles or blood and I’m not huge fan of messy.” My mind flashed to Happy and how different these two were. Happy obviously didn’t have an issue with blood or needles and he’d never watch that movie. Even in looks the two couldn’t be more different, Ben was softer with a nice smile and warmer eyes. Happy on the other hand, was cold, hard, and rough. “I was also supposed to be a math major but I changed it to accounting halfway through my junior year.” I snapped out of my thoughts at his voice and smiled.

“That’s great.” I said with a smile. Our food came not long after.

“Why don’t you tell me about yourself?” He asked and I froze unsure what to tell him.

“Well…. Um…. Obviously I love italian food. I got a business major when I went to college and now I’m helping Gemma out at TM while she helps out with her grandsons. My favorite color is blue and my favorite movie is Underworld, well the series. I can’t choose just one of them.” I told him and he smiled and listened as I talked. I blushed and brushed my hair out of my face, I wasn’t used to this kind of attention. The rest of dinner was filled with light conversations and a fun atmosphere. Afterwards, as I got up from the table, he stopped me by lightly placing his hand over mine.

“Would you like to come with me for some ice cream?” He asked.

“Yeah, sure. That sounds great.” I smiled and we both got up. He took my hand lightly and we walked out of the restaurant but instead of going to the car, he lead me down the street. We walked a couple blocks over to a little ice cream shop, it was cute and definitely family owned. I bought the ice cream for us since he got dinner and we had a good time, just goofing around while we ate it.

Happy’s POV

I had given up on the tv and started pacing around your house. I also helped myself to some of your food and a beer as I did. I was finishing off the last of my beer as I came across a picture down your hallway. It was a younger you and a beautiful pit bull. You were sitting on a porch with your arms around the dog, while you smiled brightly at the camera. I took it off the wall and smiled as I looked at it, you looked so happy and it made me smile slightly. I put it back and started to pace the house again as I waited for you to get home.

Reader’s POV

We walked back to the car and then he drove me back home. He got out first and opened my door for me in a very gentlemanly fashion. He took my hand and walked me back to my door.

“Thank you for tonight. I had a lot of fun.” I smiled at him.

“The pleasure was all mine.” He chuckled and I giggled. I bit my lip debating on inviting him in for a beer or not. I decided not tonight but I would invite him on another date.

“Would you like to go on another date?” I asked him, quietly.

“Of course, I will text you later and we can set it up?” He asked and I nodded.

“That sounds great.” I smiled and opened my door, which caused me to quickly close it again as I saw Happy’s feet hanging off the end of my couch. “Um… Thank you for tonight!” I said quickly and kiss his cheek softly before opening the door slightly and going in. I closed it shut quickly and locked it before stomping into the living room. I picked up a pillow from my other couch and started hitting Happy with it. “You… Stupid…. Son of a bitch!”

“Ouch! What did I do?” Happy asked while looking at me like I was crazy.  I hit him with the pillow a couple more times before pulling back to glare at him.

“You’re fucking stunted if you don’t know what you did!” I hit him again then groaned and threw the pillow on the other couch. “Get out of my house!” I walked away from him and went into my bedroom. I heard him chuckle and run after me. I closed the door in his face and he opened it up to follow me into my room.

“How was your little date with the bitch?” He asked as he wrapped his arms around me and nuzzled my neck.

“Happy, I’m pissed at you.” I said as I smacked his hands away.

“Oh come on, you can’t seriously be upset with me. I felt how soaked you were.” He smirked. I glared at him and sat down in front of my mirror. I started taking the pins out of my hair and then my necklace.

“Just because I was horny doesn’t mean that you didn’t upset me.” I told him. I smirked as an idea came to me and looked in the mirror at Happy. I arched my back and reached behind me to slowly undo my dress. His eyes were glued to my back as I brought the zipper all the way down. I slowly pushed one side of my dress down, pulling my arm out but keeping my bra covered breast covered. “Happy…”

“Huh…?” He said not taking his eyes off of my exposed back. I slipped the other side off and let the front fall onto my lap. His eyes moved to the mirror where he could see my breasts. I reached behind and undid my bra then I slowly pulled it off. I cupped my breasts and saw him shift behind me. I smirked and let out a moan as I pinched my nipples.

“You know….” I started as I jiggled them slightly. I heard him groan and smirked.

“What, baby girl?” His voice was huskier and he still didn’t look at anything but my breasts.

“If you….” I paused. “Apologized then maybe I’ll let you fuck me.” I let my breasts go and started removing my makeup.

“I ain’t apologizing.” He growled and crossed his arms over his chest.

“Then I guess you ain’t fucking me.” I stated and continued to remove my makeup until it was all gone. I shifted and took my shoes off then shimmed the rest of my dress off while still sitting down. “Maybe I’ll just wait until my next date with Ben.” I was expecting a response but I didn’t get one. All I got was him standing up and walking over to me. He was so calm looking but I knew better and my body shivered in anticipation.

One of his hands rests on my shoulder while the other runs lightly up my back. The hand resting against my shoulder rubs soft circles into my skin and I couldn’t help but take a shaky breath in. His hand on my back finally made it’s way to my other shoulder and ran all the way to my collar bone. Lightly stroking it before moving back to my shoulder then my back. My eyes fluttered close and I sighed softly but then the hand on my back grabbed a fistful of hair while the other one wrapped around my throat. He squeezed softly as my eyes snapped back open and leaned down to growl lowly in my ear.

“Say something like that again and I’ll make sure you can’t walk for a month.” He growled. “I’m not apologizing for what I did, baby girl, but I am sorry it upset you.” I looked at him in shock, I hadn’t expected any type of apology from him ever. “Can I fuck you now? Or do you wanna role play a Dr. Phil episode first?”

“Well… you are bald.” I teased and his hand tightened around my throat as he let out a warning growl.

“Easy, baby girl.” He growled into my ear. His hand moved from my throat to my arm and he yanked me out of my seat and turned me around to face him. He pulled me close to his body, keeping his grip on my hair, but his other hand came up to cup my cheek. His thumb lightly ran over my bottom lip and I shivered as my hand went up to grab his hand. He leaned down and kissed me passionately, his tongue sliding into my mouth. I moaned and my other hand grabbed his hip to pull him closer.

He pulled back and looked down at me like he was debating over something. He guided me to my bed, once my knees hit it he stopped moving. I still had one hand over his and the other over his hip and he still looked like he was debating something. It was probably the best way to fuck me.

“You know you’ve been very bad tonight, baby girl.” Happy told me and I almost rolled my eyes at his statement. I kept myself from doing that but couldn’t stop my smirk.

“Yeah and you’ve been a great example of sugary goodness.” I said in a sassy voice. His grip tightened again and he glared down at me before smirking himself.

“Alright, I’ll give you that.” He chuckled. “Doesn’t mean I’m going to go easy on you though.” He turned me around fast and pushed me down on the bed. He made it so I was on the bed on all fours. He pulled back and I could hear his clothes drop to the floor. Happy pulled me up so I was on my knees then he pulled my arms behind my back. I felt something cold and hard wrap around my wrists and realized it was his belt as he tightened it.

His hand wrapped around the belt between my hands and he pulled back more causing my back to arch. I felt his cock press against my pussy before he slammed into me hard. I moaned loudly and I heard him growl after a second he started moving in and out of me fast and hard. He pulled my arms back so far that it hurt but I barely noticed as pleasure overcame me. My breasts bounced with every thrust and the room filled with our moans and the smack of his hips hitting my ass.

Suddenly he pulled me back even further and his other hand wrapped around my throat. He squeezed softly and I moaned as he did, his hand tightened more. Not completely cutting my airway off but definitely making it hard to breathe. I was starting to get close now especially once he started growling in my ear.

“Fuck…. I love pounding this pussy…” He nipped my earlobe before somehow managing to thrust in harder and faster. I felt like I was going to break and his grip on my throat tightened just slightly but it was enough to have me cum hard all over his cock. He thrusted into me hard a couple more times before cumming himself. He released my throat and gently kissed the side of it. His hands moved to the belt and undid it but instead of tossing it to the floor, he used it to spank my ass hard. I let out a loud yell as he did. I turned to glare at him and he let out a chuckle. “Couldn’t resist myself.”

“Fuck you.” I grumbled before laying down on my side. He laid down behind me and wrapped his arm around my waist.

“You just did.” He kissed and bit my neck and I couldn’t stop the soft moans. “And after a little rest, we’ll be doing it again.” I turned around to face him with an amused look on my face.

“Will we?” I chuckled then leaned up to bite his lower lip and brought my hand up to where I had accidentally left scars on his chest. It wasn’t usual that I left marks on him but about month ago he had fucked me so well that my nails dug into him. They had been deep marks and eventually scarred which he didn’t seem to mind. He had said that it was one of the more pleasurable ways to get a scar.

“Someone’s feeling playful.” His eyes darkened and something flashed in them for a second.

“And what if I am?” I challenged and dragged my nails lightly over the scars. His mouth crashed onto mine in a hot and hungry kiss. He rolled me onto my back and his lips moved from my mouth to my neck. They made sure to leave some big marks there before moving on to my breasts. His cock started twitching to life and I knew he was going to be ready for the next round soon.

Chib’s POV

I knew what I was doing was stupid but I needed some help and someone to talk to about everything. I had seen Happy stand in the doorway of the office before sprinting into his dorm to shower and then pulling out of the parking lot like a man on a mission. Probably to go and fuck you to try and change your decision on the date that you already didn’t want to go on.

It was strange for Happy to fuck anyone more than once let alone get jealous and that was the reason that I was standing in front of the door I was now. I want to see just how far Happy’s feelings for you went and this seemed like the best option. I knocked on the door and waited.

“What?” Tig asked sleepily.

“Can I come in? I got summat te discuss wi’ ye.” I said. Tig looked at me confused before nodding and stepping to the side to let me in. He closed the door behind us and sat down on his bed.

“What’s up brother?” He asked.

“Happy an’ Y/N are fuckin’.” I told him bluntly. He looked at me for a few seconds before bursting out laughing.

“I thought you were serious for a second there.” He said between laughs.

“I am… I sawr em, las’ night.” I told him with all seriousness. His laughing stopped and he stared at me wide eyed.

“Seriously!? Happy, Some mystery dude, and this date all get to be with her!” He pouted. I sighed and pinched the bridge of my nose.

“Hap is ‘er myst’ry guy, ya fuckin’ bellend.” I huffed out.

“But Happy never fucks anyone more then once.” He said and I looked at him.

“They seemed verra familiar wi’ each o’er, an’ Happy even go’ jealous hearin’ abou’ th’ lass’ date.” I told him.

“Wow….” Tig said as he processed the news. “So… does he like her?”

“I dun know, tha’s why I need yer help.” I told him. “I dun want th’ lass ge’in hurt.”

“So you want me to see how Happy feels about her?” Tig asked as he looked at me carefully.

“Aye but we can’t le’ ‘em know tha’ we know.”  I told him seriously. Tig thought and then got a smirk on his face that made me instantly regret telling him anything.

“I’ll be very sneaky, I promise.” Tig told me.

“Aye, well jus’ let me know wha’ yer doin;.” I said.

“Okay, brother will do!” Tig said way to cheerfully. I just nodded and started heading towards the door.

“G’night, bro’er.” I said.

“Night, Chibby.” Tig yelled after me.


~Hope you enjoy~

Hello! I absolutely love your work and I was wondering. Is it possible to be a background painter or illustrator without majoring in illustration? I'm a sophomore in college and realized I'd love to do similar work to you, but the only art major at my university is a traditional drawing + painting major. Do you think I could still do it?

hello! thank you so much, that means a lot to me!!

it is 100% possible to have any job in the animation field without having a degree. in this post i talk about how you don’t need to go to school at all, but if you intend to stay at your current school, a painting major can only help you. learning the basics of light theory, color theory, composition and perspective are essential for being a background painter. a decent painting major will give you those foundations. if you wish to study on your own, this book covers the basics of composition and this book covers the basics of color and light. from there i’d recommend studying the works of artists you like, doing master copies or studies, and painting lots and lots!

i am very confident you can be a bg painter or illustrator if you stick with it and work hard, anon!! good luck with all of it!

September 5-9th. 2017

So, this semester has already eaten me a live. That’s why I didn’t post very much this past week. I’ve just been reading; books, articles, short stories, and my own writing and rewriting. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been fun getting back into work but there’s so much this semester. I’m cramming a lot in and it feels overwhelming but I also feel like I have a handle on it for now.

This weekend was refreshing. One of my best friends visited from out of town and I got to watch her rugby game, which she won! I also started work this past week and I finished working on an art project today (9.10.17). Someone donated about 500 copies of National Geographic magazines that date back to the 60s! I’ve been scouting out good photographs to use as inspiration in my journal :) 

I’m surviving on avocado toast, Ripple milk, iced coffee, and my new Birkenstocks. Good luck!

Hi Bev, I really admire your work so I was hoping to ask for some advice. I’m a studio painting major at a liberal arts uni, not an art-specific school, though my goal is to go into character design/illustration or color work. I don’t really have the same resources at my school as compared to a place like RISD, so I was wondering if you had any advice for constructing a portfolio or finding freelance work after college that can help make connections towards what I really want to do. Thank you!!

thank you! first, it’s important to think about what kind of professional work you imagine yourself doing and want to work towards. look at the people in those fields and their portfolios. for character design and illustration, the most important factor is communicating with the audience through the design. 

a good character design portfolio shows a wide variety of characters with different shapes, personalities, mannerisms, and moods. i’m not an expert but in an imaginary world where i hired people, i like seeing expressions and poses that indicate personality, character interaction, and character lineups.  it’s always a good idea to include storytelling moments too - think about what the character is doing, feeling, and thinking. 

 as for illustration in general, whatever kind of work you want to do, make sure to show clearly in your portfolio that you can do it. 

some tips to get freelance work - make a portfolio website. only display work you would want to get hired to do.  make your links easily accessible/your contact info easy to find for clients/recruiters, etc. other than that, i’ve gotten a surprising amount of freelance work through people finding my work on tumblr, twitter, and behance, so don’t underestimate the power of simply putting yourself out there and being friendly.
