one of the greatest artists ever

tiberiusmulder  asked:

I have two questions. What is your favorite comic series of the silver age? And of the first 113 issues of the the 1960s JLA do you have any favorite issues? If so, what are they? If you've read any of course, for both questions lol

 not in the first 113, but One of my absolute favorite comics on the planet Earth Is Justice league of America 200. it’s massive and it’s one of the best  multi-artist Jam books of all time. every single chapter is drawn by one of the greatest artists of all time.

 the best Brian Bolland artwork ever is in this book. 

 every time I have an anniversary issue I do a Jam issue, including my last issue of guardians, because I’m trying to capture the feeling of this book

so you mean to tell me beyoncé gave us one of the greatest albums i’ve ever heard, combined with a literal art film rather than music videos and put her everything into this literal artistic and musical feat so y’all could give adele best record and album of the year for basically rereleasing her last two albums with new and terrible vocals

“This picture of us hugging at the Newport Folk Festival … Leonard did “Suzanne.” I’d met him and I went, ‘I love that song. What a great song.’ Really. “Suzanne” was one of the greatest songs I ever heard. So I was proud to meet an artist. He made me feel humble, because I looked at that song and I went, ‘Woah. All my songs seem so naive by comparison.’ It raised the standard of what I wanted to write.”

Can we celebrate November 20th as the airdate anniversary of the greatest webseries episode ever (or at least ONE OF the greatest ever, even if you don’t love AoJE)? Personally, if I ever had to pick a “Webseries Appreciation Day”, it would be then. Not because there weren’t more significant dates prior and not because it’s the most dramatic and not because nothing since has had any significance. But because I legitimately believe that “Kidnapped” marked the new ways in which webseries could go. They could go outside. They could go “off plot”. They could realistic without sacrificing interest. They could introduce music in a way that was significant to the story and significant to the viewer. They could show off a specific landscape/cityscape (not simply through transmedia).

Basically, “Kidnapped” was and remains revolutionary in the field and I just want to remember it always.

Hip-hop artist Common calls “Hamilton: An American Musical” “one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen.” Creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda says he actually based his George Washington character on Common and John Legend.

Common: Hamilton fanboy

A few days ago I attended a funeral of a dear friend’s father.
This unfortunate event brought me 17 years back to the day my father died. I was 17, meaning next year, I will be spending more than half of my life without my dad. A simple, bitter math.
My father is the reason I became an artist. He’s the one who bought me my first brushes and oil paints, he showed me animated films on that small monitor, he taught me about the greatest artists in his wonderful library, The first game I have ever played was in his Apple IIe (pac-man), and later on, he has brought the first professional graphic software for me to use. He always encouraged me in his own gentle way to aspire and develop, to explore and to deepen.

It’s good to reminisce about dad.

To me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly, the most popular, great painter of all time, the most beloved. His command of colour, the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world - no one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world’s greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.

Doodling and drooling over my favourite Dark Lord.

I felt like fangirling tonight, so I drew (and am drawing at the very moment) sketches of Tom Riddle in his twenties.

This obsession with the villain - and with the Dark Side in general - is becoming unhealthy… but let’s face it, what obsession is not unhealthy anyway?

I’m digressing…

Chapter 5 of Dark Games is up! It’s one of the greatest chapter I’ve ever written, so go check it out. There’s a lot from Hermione’s POV as well (:

Ouran High School Host Club is such a ride cause like on the one hand it’s a comedy about a poor girl who gets caught up in the adventures of a bunch of filthy rich boys with too much time on their hands but on the other one of the characters is canonically the greatest martial artist ever to live and another casually collects CIA level intelligence on everyone he meets. And their perception of what constitutes a serious situation is so skewed that you’re never sure whether they’re going to choose to resolve the plot with romcom shenanigans or a private police force
