To all of my friends working on a comic:
I feel like this isn’t said enough. If YOU (yes, you!!) are out there working on a comic, or an ongoing story of some sort, that you complete in your own spare time, and have now or have ever taken some time off to get things in order, or to worry about other obligations, or just because you needed a break, I want you to know that no matter how long it might take you to put up something new, there are people like me who will still be totally all
during the downtime. I am still super excited about your project. I like your characters. I like your ideas. I am really proud of you for doing something difficult, and hope you will not beat yourself up if other things come up - that’s just kind of how it is. Keep doing what you are doing, and I will be here ready to jump right back in with the same enthusiasm I had when you left off! (And so will all the other people like me, too.)
Even though it wasn’t meant for me. I really needed this today.
As an addendum: if you needed this, then yes, it was for you!
To the aspiring artists & creatives out there.
I’m 75% sure I have a chest infection. I’m coughing like crazy and feeling listless. I don’t even have the energy to draw. I’ve just been sleeping off and on these past few days.
but JLaw falling doesn’t strike me as ‘quirky’ or ‘adorable’ at all
it strikes me as careless and insolent and here’s why
performing femininity is sooooo imperative for WOC in order to garner respect and even sometimes your very life
i got the Talk from my mum about how to walk like a lady since i was 6
she herself performed femininity rigorously
because it’s one of the few ways Black and Brown women can grasp a smidgen, a tiny flicker, of (if not respect) at least tolerance
y’all think Lupita can afford to not care about how she comports herself? u think she can afford to make immature jokes about food and carry herself like a bull in a china shop? y’all think Gina Torres, Gabourey Sidibe, Salma Hayek, Lucy Liu could get away with that shit?
jlaw knows plenty well how to carry herself with etiquette and grace she just doesn’t care
'quirkiness' is all fun and games when you have the privilege to trip all over yourself and still be considered a desirable, accomplished woman.
meanwhile ima stay unimpressed until the day my Brown and Black girls can afford the same careless freedom that jlaw and her stans take for granted
y’know I always thought the way she carried herself related to white privilege but I could never put it into words
Those of us in animation always gripe that the rest of Hollywood doesn’t care or know the first thing about animated films. There are tons of anecdotal stories to support this position, but finally, we’ve got some definitive proof. And if you think Hollywood doesn’t understand animation, it’s even worse than you could imagine.
AAHAHAHA OH MY GOD
This is pretty freakin’ great and terrible at the same time.
Anonymous asked: You ever wonder what Mikey's dinosaur/turtle hybrid babies would had looked like?
*___* I…would rather not know…I expect they would be quite horrifying! Hybrid babies tend to be…not so pretty!
Although, Mikey would love them all the same :3
moonstone27ls said: That concept still confuses me:o. I mean she does kinda look like a relative species to a Triceraton or whatever the word was… so … yeah that is an odd combo for turtle. Wonder if one of them would just be born plain green:B
Me too O___o I liked Ross Campbell’s version of a female Triceraton better, where she didn’t look so humanoid and instead had a hulking physique.
I guess the TMNT canon is that, no matter the alien species, they can interbreed with anything they want *_*
come on, they would look COMPLETELY ADORABLE! XD Mikey (the cutest Turtle) + Seri who is a protoceratops (the cutest dinosaur species) = precious turtleceratopses
don’t make me draw one to prove it to you.
YOU BETTER DRAW THEM XD
and now i give you Olive (on the left) and Yogurt!
