Steven Universe: Art & Origins

Steven Universe: Art & Origins is the first book to take fans behind the scenes of the groundbreaking and boundlessly creative Cartoon Network animated series Steven Universe. The eponymous Steven is a boy who—alongside his mentors, the Crystal Gems (Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl)—must learn to use his inherited powers to protect his home, Beach City, from the forces of evil. Bursting with concept art, production samples, early sketches, storyboards, and exclusive commentary, this lavishly illustrated companion book offers a meticulous written and visual history of the show, as well as an all-access tour of the creative team’s process. Steven Universe: Art & Origins reveals how creator Rebecca Sugar, the writers, the animators, and the voice actors work in tandem to bring this adventure-packed television series to life.

Graceful and critically endangered, an encounter with a hawksbill sea turtle will leave even us conservationists speechless. Nature Conservancy senior scientist @heystephwear swam alongside one on a recent trip to St. John in the Caribbean. The Conservancy is working to protect their nesting beaches, often the same beaches where they themselves were born. @nature_caribbean #turtle #seaturtle #caribbean #ocean #iliketurtles #endangeredspecies (at St John USVI)

anonymous asked:

Do you have any pool/beach day advice or tips? Before during and after stuff

This is a good question. I made a sun protection tips post before.


  • Use sunscreen with at least an SPF 50/PA ++++, broad-spectrum. Beach day is not where I fuck around with western sunscreens. I want the maximum UVB and UVA protection I can get. Here’s some sunscreens that meet that qualification:

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence

Shiseido Senka Aging Care UV Sunscreen

Hada Labo UV Creamy Gel SPF

MAKE P:REM Blue Ray Sun Fluid SPF (big bottle, good for body)

MAKE P:REM Blue Ray Sun Gel

MAKE P:REM Blue Ray Sun Cream

  • I’m also a crazy sunscreen lady, so I might even layer chemical and physical sunscreens… :)
  • Apply sunscreen before heading to the pool/beach. Sunscreen requires 15 minutes to absorb before providing proper protection.
  • A lip balm with SPF is a good thing to have.
  • Antioxidant-rich skin care is a great idea!
  • Don’t exfoliate for a few days before your beach day. If you’re using retinol, give yourself at least week without use.


  • Stay hydrated. Remember, 64oz/8 glasses of water is what you should drink on a normal day. When you’re sweating and exercising, that requirement increases!
  • Wear lots of sunscreen and reapply often
  • Bring a beach umbrella
  • Have a swimsuit coverup and wide brim hat for extra coverage
  • Take frequent breaks from the sun in a shady spot (why the umbrella is such a good idea)


  • Always bathe after! I almost don’t need to say this, but a day full of sunscreen application, sweating, and chlorinated/salt water should warrant a good shower.
  • Cooling, healing, antioxidant rich products are going to be your best friends! No need to stop with aloe vera gel. A refrigerated sheet mask and a good snail essence are great post-sun products.

Let’s have some Connieverse!

All of these pictures are either from the show or from the Steven Universe art and origins book, and appart from the red I put to highlight important parts in the text, I didn’t modify anything.

(There are too many good pictures for their relationship so I had to chose)

Let’s be honest Steven always had a crush on Connie it has benn hinted by the crewniverse over and over and their relation is an important part of the serie and Steven’s growing.

Steven and Connie’s relationship evolved along the serie. It began as a crush and became a strong friendship and we can say their relation is kinda ambigious now. (They even have a fusion) 

Are they only friends? Do they share more importants feelings? The crewniverse has hinted a lot to those feelings during the serie, from Steven only having eyes fro Connie and being obsesed with the idea of being his frien

What we can say is that Connie is an important part of Steven’s life now, her being his best friend or more. 

And I do think Connie is an important character in the show she already proved this by being there at some of the most important moments (Steven’s questioning himself, his breakdown…) and will play an important role in the future. 

Her character changed as well, she is not the shy girl without friends anymore, she became Steven’s friend, then she took sword training to protect Steven and help the crystal gems, she wanted to be “his knight and do it for him”.

 Then Stevonnie was born and her relation with Steven deepened, understanding him better, putting them closer than she may ever be with any other human being.

And Steven trusted her to keep the house and protecting Beach City while they were gone. It’s really important because in the end she’s only human after all and doesn’t have magic powers. 

(Let’s not forget that Ronaldo (yes the guy whose prediction often become real) said that Connie was Steven’s girlfriend, and that Steven never denied it ^__^

Anyway I love their relationship it’s cute, and represent that love you wish canyou can have respecting each other, loving them in the purest way.

And before the off colours reveal, I thought they would be the next official couple after Garnet (and Lars and Saddie I guess?)

(You have to note that the last picture was an early plot for the “we have to talk’ episode were Greg reveal how the gems introduced him to fusion)

So for me it’s kinda official now, when will they make it canon in the serie too?!? Will they do it at all? Or will something angsty happen beteween them that will put this relationship in danger?

There are so many things I would like to say about them but it would be so long, and I’m too passionate about them sorry.

Don’t hesitate to share your thoughts if you want ^^

Kenma & the Shade

Kenma sits in the shade underneath a tree or something, playing his PSP, minding his own business when Kuroo turns up, dripping wet from swimming and tries to hug him. Kenma reacts like a cat when wet and tries to push Kuroo away. Kuroo gets all sad but it’s mainly cause he might damage the PSP that Kenma’s being so mean.

IS ANYONE ELSE SEEING THIS?!?!?  I was just in the middle of watching Mighty Monster Card Traders: Shuffle Quest and then there was a bunch of static and then THIS was on my TV!!!!!

Judging by her greenish hue, I’d say she must be part of some eco-terrorist group.  Most definitely a highly advanced android programmed to free animals from the zoos.  Sounds like her mission has gone afoul, but she still could be dangerous!  

I implore any zookeepers who follow my blog to be on the look out for this green android!  Protect your rhesus monkeys and your tamarins and your pygmy marmosets and above all PROTECT THE KOALAS!

Wait… Connie, Peridot, and Lapis protecting Beach City together? Please tell me this is going to be an episode. Please tell me this is going to be an episode. Please, oh please, oh please, oh please-


Peridot and Lapis on an adventure!

Lapis not drowning Connie!

Connie and Peridot actually interacting in any capacity for the first time ever!
