"I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been threatened with physical violence simply because I expressed enjoyment of a new TV show, movie, series, comic book, etc.
I’m so sick of being afraid to tell people “I love _____” because I fear the repercussions that might come from people who believe their favorite fandom is theirs and theirs alone. The fastest way for a fandom to stagnate is to try and dictate who can or can’t enjoy it.
Did anyone else know that Irving Berlin wrote a (much worse) version of this song for “Brothers.” I am serious, it was published in the White Christmas song book. I found it on the internet once, it’s embarrassingly bad.
We would watch JUST this part as kids. It wasn’t until years later I realized the rest of the movie existed!
Lord help the Mister who comes between me and my sister!
If you wanna be a girl, and you wanna call yourself a girl gamer and wear pink ponytails, and go cosplay, I don’t give a FUCK. And I’m gonna say fuck here, because you know what? She’s being who she want to be, and maybe it’s not about your penis.
I actually made ‘screaming snowmen’ as a kid, and this was the hardest one to manage - because it involved carving a hole through a ball of snow that had become ice in the middle. Making it out of felt wasn’t all that much easier - but I succeeded! Not completely finished - they need to sit and tighten up for a few days before I clean them up with a razor to get rid of all those flyaway bits.
Next? I don’t know. Probably the melting snowmen of the apocolypse.
*cackles madly* Eeeeeeeheeheehee! These are AWESOME!
HAHA! They announced it, finally! I was incredibly fortunate to be asked to draw a short Avatar: The Last Airbender comic (10 pages) for Dark Horse’s Free Comic Book Day offerings! Being a giant ATLA nerd, I was BEYOND thrilled to contribute to that world in a small way. The story is written by one of my favourite comic people, Gene Yang, and will be available in May on Free Comic Book Day.
Above is the final cover, coloured by Cris Peter, who also coloured The Adventures of Superhero Girl, along with pencils, inks and thumbnails for the process junkies. I was drawing the cover before the story was nailed down, so I was told to draw “something exciting with Sokka & Suki, something action-y.” haha, okay.
I have been wanting to assemble a huge post of some of the amazing women artists out there, because it seems like too often they get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there, they are all amazing, and they all need more visibility and recognition. I encourage you to browse through and visit their websites, and please reblog and add more artists to the list! I know this is NOWHERE near comprehensive and that are tons more artists out there.
This list mostly covers mostly professional illustrators and scifi/fantasy artists. I know I’m missing out on a ton of talented people in comics, animation, fine art, and people who do primarily fan work, but I don’t know quite as much about those areas so they aren’t as well represented here; my apologies.
(The tags got cut off; I guess there’s a limit now? As such I wasn’t able to tag every single artist included.)
EDIT: Added more artists!
