saro's art

OKAY SO remember this?

like, Render was one of the very first jeanmarco fics I read, and that was the very first jeanmarco fanart I made ;v;

so when I heard Saro was holding this art project for Render I just went all “mAN wouldn’t it be great to recreate that old-ass fanart i made months ago”

so here it is, the first fanart revisited ;v; i hope i’ve improved since then wELP

Watch on

LUPITA ON WANGECHI | by Zina Saro Wiwa

Back in 2010, as part of her project “This is My Africa”, Zina Saro Wiwa interviewed Lupita Nyong'o about her love for the work of Wangechi Mutu.

“She creates these new bodies, they’re very elegant, very loud and sensual at the same time, really primitive and yet futuristic […] In Africa there’s all this talk about tension between tradition and modernity, but when these two clash, so many other things come out. And that’s what I feel Wangechi captures, that complexity, that new identity that comes out of an Africa that’s flexing it’s muscles and trying to find its place. - Lupita on Wangechi

Summer’s coming up, as is RTX and I would really, really love to go in order to meet friends, finally get to meet @firstofficerweenie in the flesh, and to network frantically with other peeps in the industry. However, with all sorts of bills popping up I don’t really have the cash.

So! I’m setting myself the goal of $250 through commissions in April/May in order to try to cover the plane ticket. (PLEASE do not just donate; if you really, really want to, you can add a tip with your commission or ask for a 10 dollar sketch/short fic but I really would feel bad getting hand-outs or gifts at this time.) more examples of my work can be found in my art tag!


  • I will giveaway one (1) bust painting to someone who likes or reblogs this post between now and April 30th - that’s a head-and-shoulders, solo character
  • First commission locked in (accepted by me, and half-payment sent) will be $40 instead of $50
  • if i don’t meet my goal, money will go towards stuff like Groceries and Rent and Savings
  • if i exceed my goal, extra money will probably go towards cosplay

contact and payment will be to bittersweetsaro(a)! thanks in advance!

today was a Rough day at work but it was considerably brightened by this commission of Throw Away the Key by a long-time friend @littlestpersimmon ! I’ve always adored their art (specifically in their comic @eeriecrests ) and this piece is no exception! Thank you sooooooooooooo much Bel! <3 <3 <3

you’ve got sucker’s luck, have you given up?
