Inktober day 8

“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.”
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.
I made a thing of my two favorite brothers. (This is Hank and John Green, you probably know of something they’ve done like Vlogbrothers, John’s books, Hank’s music, Crash Course, Sci Show, VidCon, Dear Hank and John: A Comedy Podcast About Death or countless other things.)
Please do not use my art for anything without my consent.
All of the things I listed above are amazing and if any of you want to check them out hit me up and I’ll get you some links. DFTBA!
(If anyone is interested I might make this into a phone lockscreen or like desktop thing, so yeah)
I’m looking for some new blogs to follow so if you post about any of the following, like this post and I’ll check out your blog:
The Bold Type
The Handmaid’s Tale
Dear White People
A Series of Unfortunate Events
Person of Interest
Parks and Rec
Day 1 of Fan-uary 2017! My Favourite Podcast from 2016: “Dear Hank and John”
A comedy podcast about death, with short poems, dubious advice, and weekly updates on a 3rd/2nd tier English football team and the planet Mars, hosted by the vlogbrothers, John and Hank Green. ( @fishingboatproceeds & @edwardspoonhands )
Picking a favourite podcast is tricky. I mean, I don’t listen to THAT many, but the ones I listen to I like quite a bit (runners up for this spot probably go to CGP Grey and Numberphile’s, “Hello Internet ” and the “RT Podcast”). “Dear Hank and John” had me laughing and facing the abyss of existential anxiety, truly a rollercoaster of emotions that I welcomed in my long bus journeys this past year. Honestly, this podcast has such a nice authenticity to it, and it’s genuinely funny and wise. Also, Hank Green is a ray of sunshine, and John Green has this great ability to go from incredibly ridiculous to super heartwarming within seconds.

PS: This is legit the first time I’ve drawn in a week. Thank god I posted this publicly so I have to do it now.
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!!
“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.”
