“french the llama” poster design!

when I became a nerdfighter in 2011, the “french the llama” saying was one of the strangest things from the fandom (to me). I didn’t find any of the other crazy and weird things in the fandom strange, but I did find this strange. I’ve grown to love and accept the phrase in all its weirdness, and it is one of my favorite small bits of nerdfighteria.

Inktober day 8
Hazel Grace Lancaster
“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book. And then there are books which you can’t tell people about, books so special and rare and yours that advertising your affection feels like a betrayal.”


Tour Because Awesome 3 Posters by Eilidh Reid

I’ve had, yet again, the amazing opportunity to design the posters for this fab tour of weird and wonderful musical talent. I know I say this a lot but it’s so unheard of for people to come to you and say ‘we like what you do, do whatever you want’ and I’m so thankful for this opportunity. Thanks guys! Enjoy your amazing tour, be sure to grab a poster if you’re at one of the stops!! 

My NerdCon Stories Talk about Mental Illness and Creativity
Okay, so I want to share with you three brief stories of bad times in my life.
By John Green

“Many artists and storytellers do live with mental illness. But many don’t. And what I want to say today I guess is that you can be sane and be an artist, and also that if you are sick, getting help — although it is hard and exhausting and inexcusably difficult to access — will not make you less of an artist.”



New video! WIth a slight change of pace – this week we talk about the top 10 ideas that led to the creation of The Art Assignment.

We look at how ideas are cyclical - informed by ideas that precede them AND informing those that follow. And we talk about how everything from planking and meme culture to Sports Racers and Yoko Ono got us to this point.
