GIVE IT UP FOR 3000+ FOLLOWERS!!

Thank you so much for the support! I’m honestly happy that this many people are interested in this blog! Running it has been a fun ride from the very beginning, and I don’t see it ending anytime soon. Also, I reached a moment right now in which I feel like I’m breaking through with my art style and process, and getting closer to what I want to do – so all the more reason to celebrate!!

Update: now with a canon!Katsuki edit (x)

it’s really interesting how reconstructions of Proto-Indo-European have been used to figure out was Indo-European culture would have been like. For example: 

  • the reconstructed language has no word for king, but it does have a word for clan chieftain so it’s been theorized that Indo-Europeans were organized in small groups or clans
  • there is a word for daughter-in-law but none for son-in-law which suggests that women would have joined their husbands’ families after marriage
  • there are many words for animals and few for fruits, veggies, and grains suggesting a meat-based diet
  • the existence of words for snow and winter suggest Indo-Europeans lived in a more northern climate

but it’s important to note that “the absence of a word in the reconstructed proto-language is far less compelling evidence than the presence of a word: a lack of evidence it not itself sure evidence”*.

So what better time than on Valentines Day to subject you poor followers to more oc ships with artist friends, I guess???

This one is with good artist friend and inspiration, @bulumble-bee! Her bottom-heavy barista, named Mizuki, is paired with what sorta used to be a minor char in one of my stories but now is sorta floating around in the space between actual casts? (Like so many others). His name’s Felix Vargas, and he’s a free-lance painter. While Mizuki’s Japanese, Felix is Spanish in terms of heritage and channels that culture through his hobby of cooking that he does for her often, as evidenced in the picture below. 

I had way more fun drawing that Pallea that Felix is holding than I should have. Food is really fun to draw and color, and I should do it waaaaaay more often…
