where did you get

ecofridge  asked:

How did you get to where you are now in life? Like, how did you wind up with your job, meet these people, And do you have an autobiography I can read cause I want to know what I’ve gotta do to get a job like yours

i dont have an autobiography because my life isnt all that exciting, honestly! to get a job like mine though? i made a reference to it in a post about drawing advice a bit ago, but it boiled down simply to getting my work out there. i hadn’t done too much professional illustration, just some local stuff and self-published comics, but i was posting most of my stuff here and on twitter. when the Paradox Space site launched, i was enamored with the idea of homestuck comics in a more traditional format. i spent an afternoon sketching out a story and posting the roughs on tumblr since i wasnt sure if i was going to finish it or not. the editor at the time happened to see the post and recommended i send over a portfolio. sometimes i was asked to submit scripts, so i wrote a lot, and if they needed a script or a page on a quick turnaround, i did my best to help out. eventually it went from ‘hey we need a script’ to ‘hey we need some art cleanup for hiveswap’ to ‘hey we need animation for collide’ to ‘hey work on hiveswap fulltime’. it doesnt just “happen”, you just put your work out there, be easy to work with and highly dependable, and people will remember it. there’ll be jobs you get passed over for (good lord i was passed over and rejected from jobs and publishers for years) but don’t get discouraged and keep at it and eventually, hopefully, you will find what youre looking for.

there's a post of yours i have saved in my likes, it's from a year ago when you said you had quit your full time job to work on your illustrations and freelancing.... a year later, are you happy? was it a good idea? i'm so stuck in my life right now with my art and i feel like i'm getting no where and you did what i wanna do and i just wanted to know how has it all worked out for you? i love your art btw, you're a big inspiration to my

Before I answer this… I need a moment to wipe off a tear. Thank you for your kind message, it was so uplifting!
My current situation: I’ve haven’t gone back to my fulltime job since. I’ve realised that I feel much better doing many different jobs than a full-time one. It works better for me. Now I rely on commissions, Etsy, Patreon. I do dog sitting and have a part time summer job for three months at a gallery. I don’t have days off. I work from the morning to late night, and when I stop for watching a movie or eating I feel guilty lol. With all this together, for this first year I barely managed to make enough for my rent. These are not complaints. I’m quite sure that this has been the happiest time of my life so far. I don’t care about the struggles, I’m just so glad I’m doing what I want, at the pace I want. Actually, struggles feel good because I’m getting over them on my own, and it feels rewarding. I’m my only boss and I don’t need to meet anyone’s expectations but mine. it feels good to know I’m the only responsible for what I do. That’s the way I want to do things.
Now I know that this was possible because of my circumstances. I live in a place that offers many jobs so if I am ever in desperate need for money I can always find a job in a restaurant or a supermarket. I also don’t have to pay taxes because I don’t earn nearly enough. Furthermore, when I quit I had savings, and although I’ve already went through almost half of them, I still have some to keep me going. So I was lucky, but also I would have probably not taken this big step if I had been in a different situation. It wasn’t a jump in the dark, I have plans B and C and D and E if I something goes wrong.
Something like this won’t work out for everyone. But I can say for sure that it’s worth a try. I know I won’t be able to keep doing this forever at this rate, but at least I’ll look back and think that I’ve done my best without regrets. Thank you all for supporting me in this adventure :)

Avalance Prompt: Captain where did you get that hickey on your neck? Sara says oh Ava is a biter.

Sara walks into the busy kitchen of the Waverider, bleary-eyed.  She'd woken up to an empty other side of the bed, and has presumed that Ava had gone to the ship’s gym to work out.  

She remembers Ava saying how sleeping on the Waverider was something she was still getting used to, seeing as there was not really any sunlight or moonlight to indicate the time of day. 

Ray and Zari are both scarfing down Froot Loops, sat at the table, while Nate is waiting for the coffee machine he insisted on buying because ‘nothing can beat proper bulletproof coffee’, hastily offering Gideon a 'no offence’ after the fact.

Sara goes to the fabricator, punching in the code for Oatmeal while Nate looks at her funny.

'Nate I do not appreciate people looking at me like a science specimen while I am still half asleep.' 

Nate raises his eyebrows, saying nothing as he goes back to the machine, starting to pour out his coffee.

So I was thinking…

@therealjacksepticeye (I doubt you’ll see this) Where did you get the name “Schneeplestein” / “Henrik Von Schneeplestein” from? Or how did it come to mind? I’ve been thinking about this all day. I’m generally curious because it’s such a fitting name and too good to just be something random. I mean unless it is random…

“(Y/N), baby, you up there? I got a surprise!” Juan Carlos called, and you ran to the window of your room, looking down at him as he sat perched on a brand new – to him – motorbike.

“Oh my god, where did you get that?” You yelled back, leaning out the window with a smile on your face.

“Finally had enough saved. Want a ride?” He asked with a wink before grinning like a kid.

Without saying another word, you ran to your bedroom door and downstairs to grab your coat and shoes.

Where did you get the name "ahhween"?

welll.. when i started this blog, it was supposed to be completely centered around my gemsonas, covellite and ivory. their fusion’s name was hauyne and “ahween” is how you pronounce it. so i just put another H for comedic effect.

“Hey, I’m on my way to your room for a nap.”
“Ok. Wait. Keith, are you parading with your ace blanket—again?”
“…Maybe. I’m eating ice cream, too. Can’t share that, but the blanket I can.”

So our resident proud ace boy was born on Asexual Awareness Week! <3 
Just let him have his nap on his birthday. This is Part 2 of this. Redbubble

did i ever tell yall the story abt how i saw one of my exes at a grocery store and she had a baby carrier with a baby in it and after awkwardly greeting her out of obligation i stared at the baby and didn’t know what to say so i just blurted out “where did you get that” in a tone as if i were inquiring her as to what aisle she grabbed an eggplant from

and she looked down at the baby and was like “………….he’s mine” and we both had this mutual uncomfortable silence and a shared moment of ‘why did u say it like that’ before i was like “oh ok bye” and i left and then moved states like three days later
