i want my otp to
- wear large sweaters
- wear cute cardigans
- eat waffles with fresh strawberries
- eat takeout while cuddling on the couch
- go camping and argue about pitching the tent
- attack each other with their cold hands
- watch terribly campy movies and love them
- be oblivious about dating until they realise it’s the fifth week they’ve shared meals and they’re arguing about a chore wheel
The girl who was my elementary school girl friend just got engaged and I’m sitting here single wearing a pug shirt and hamburger underwear

Tumblr has made us forget that some people are actually straight
jesus this post is one train wreck after another
My great grandpa got hit by a train once.
If you ever think you did something embarrassing just remember that I had a really hot waiter one time and i was gonna order double pepperoni pizza but I looked him dead in the eye and accidentally asked for double penetration pizza in front of my whole family
Stop reblogging my failure
WOW YOU GUYS So many people expressed interest in doing a daily draw group thing, made me totally excited, and when I get excited I blow things way out of proportion and therefore I have designed a new one hahahaha.
So the way this works is, each day will have 2 opposing prompts. You can choose the one that is harder for a challenge, or the one that is easier if you don’t have a lot of time or it’s an off day. I fully expect to be doing like half easy. Also this is 20 days because 20 days is as far into the future as I can think without having an anxiety attack also April will happen.
Here are the prompts!
Portrait / Action Pose
Interior / Exterior
Black&White / Color
Machinery / Nature
Saturated Palette / Muted Palette
70 / 30 Rule (Explained at about 5:35- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oO2J2ponho)
Suit / Dress
Full Page / Vignette
Gruesome / Saccharine
Industrial / Pastoral
Little Kid / Old Person
Open Space / Enclosed Space
Love / Hate
Pretty / Ugly
Pattern / Random
Form / Function
Modern / Vintage
Cluttered / Clean
Monstrous / Cute
Badass / Innocent
Odds and Ends:
- About once a week I’ll cross off the ones that we’ve done and reblog.
- Feel free to jump in AT ANY TIME!
- Tag your sketches “Easy and Hard Challenge,” so we all know where to look!!!
- NEVER FEEL BAD about skipping a day! Just jump on the next one you can fit in. You can catch up if you want, but momentum is more important, that’s why it’s going to be so great to do this in a group.
OKAY WE START TOMORROW WITH PORTRAIT OR ACTION POSE!
Major life events in comics!
I document so much of my life in comics, it seemed … lazy?… to neglect such a big part of it. I’ve been trying to get this one out for a while, but i’m not prone to sappiness or self-aggrandizing (despite what making endless comics about myself might imply) so i had a hard time figuring out an approach.
So i went with honesty :)
Last year Lucy Knisley told the story of her engagement in a heartfelt and open comic that i really respected. I respect ALL of her work, her comics are awesome, if you’ve never checked them out you totally should. In sitting down to tell my own story it made me think about what getting married means to me. I’m sure it means something slightly different to everyone, but is by no means any less meaningful. But crystallizing that idea helped me here.
I was sweaty and gross and said “Yeah. Sure.” and Jason didn’t change his mind. I think we’re gonna be alright :)
LISSA GOT ENGAGED AND MADE A COMIC ABOUT IT ahgbluhbluhhhuhuhu *happy sobbing*
Liss and I have been buds since I was first whipped into a seething jealous rage upon seeing her art in middle school (how has it been that LONG, good lord), and she found a top notch dude in Jason and, and, and… I just couldn’t be happier for them. Those sweet bastards deserve each other. <3
a little step by step process for my “hangar image posted today”.
sorry i know i should do videos, but i guess i’m getting old. all the tests from a few years back were slowing down my machine, transforming the experience into something really crappy. must try again.
a small explanation for all steps:
01 - basic block in of the hangar
02 - further refining, mostly blocking a good compo
03 - adding the vehicle
04 - a small overlay in the greens to emphasize shadows
05 - auto color (or auto tone?) to obtain richer tones
06 - describing the loco
07 - 2 overlays and one darken layer to take care of slightly limiting the bright white areas, as well as obtaining better shadows and dark areas. also putting a touch of bright light in the upper left.
08 - another describing phase. lights done simply with a color dodge.
09 - smoke and flags. self explanatory
10 - final pass using once again the “auto color” mode. erasing afterwards to leave the background with the original yellow. this step is reintroducing colder tones where needed.
I wonder what my friends say about me when i’m not around because i’m sure it’s not nice things
