So I am off tomorrow and between big commissions I wanna do some doodles. Reblog for a better chance at being picked mostly cause I want to get a variety of people to draw for. But yeah Just note me a ref!
Stuff I like drawing:
[whispers that commissions are open and you should buy my art]
They’re a great artist get in on that shit.
Was talking about #WomenAgainstFeminism today on Twitter, a trend that I see largely as a reaction to (1) extremist feminist politics found readily online and (2) ignorance/stereotypes about feminism. I tried to handle my frustration with a bit humor but quickly realized this is actually a really emotionally-fraught topic for people. Maybe not the time for sarcasm.
Most the time, feminism in action doesn’t explicitly call itself feminism. I’m talking about things like campaigning for sex ed, same sex marriage, equal pay, maternity leave, reproductive health access, transgender health care, representation, implementing sexual assault/harassment policies, getting women into stem, etc. I think this confused void about what feminists *actually do and believe in* allows the space to be sensationalized by a loud, extreme minority and predatory media sources who see a “hot story”. Mainstream onlookers who don’t know their history or what feminism is (and don’t take a second to learn…) naturally take the bait and then end up railing against something that isn’t even an accurate representation of feminism in the first place. Then feminists are pissed, and anti-feminists are pissed (though misogynists are usually quite happy) and we’ve whipped ourselves up a nice divisive shitstorm of “whose side are you on”?
I understand it’s unpopular amongst some feminists to concede that extremism exists; “there’s nothing wrong with radical action” and “they’re a part of the movement too”! I think those are valid points (and I certainly don’t think the solution is to silence/disown anyone), but I also think we have to admit that it can really alienate people from the cause, and perhaps #WomenAgainstFeminism is proof. What do you think?
much cooler than the current one
Another artbooks dump, as requested Re:Cutie Honey groundworks and Dead Leaves groundworks.
- Dead Leaves : black and white (few color pages of… black and white key images, weird) 170 pages, almost all the key images of the movie by Imaishi. It’s my only “chinese” artbook as at the time the movie got released (around what, 2004?), it wasn’t popular enough for western anime shops to order some :/
- Re:Cutie Honey : black and white (come solor pages but of illustration linearts, mainly black and white pages) 280 pages. Almost all the key images for the Cutie Honey reboot by Gainax, lots of different artists.
They’re both worth the price you’ll pay (they’re quite rare now as they’re old and I don’t think they got reprinted) but if you go to Japan, I saw some of them for cheap in Mandarake shops (as usual with Mandarake shops, you’ll have better choice and prices outside Tokyo).
Maybe there are still some of this Dead Leaves chinese counterfeit artbooks online (doesn’t matter if the quality is cheap as it’s only black and white images ^^)
In Japanese tv programme, there were some american guys who love Godzilla and were talking about it. And one of them said he plays with his wife with “pretending of Godzilla(he) and Mothra(his wife)” sometimes.
Yes that couple (Godzilla X Mothra) is so cute and that’s why I drew this, ahaha =v= Be a good couple forever! ( I dunno who he is so much though ^v^; )
A buddy of mine made this nifty Gyro set. It doesn’t have fancy animations, icons, loading screens, or anything like that, but I think it’s pretty damn well-made. Go give it some love.
Thanks to everyone that came to see me at Anime Expo and San Diego Comic Con this year! Here again are some of my favorite sketch covers from those conventions.
Stay tuned to this Tumblr to hear about any future signings I’ll have.
have some doodles I drew
This is my post detailing most if not all of the information you will need to commission me! However I normally only do commissions when I open them but it doesn’t hurt to send an email if you have any questions! My email is at the bottom of this post.
Here are the…
I’ve got a birthday coming up on August 1st and was going to try and get some commissions done to help supplement the cost of a few important things I have to get done.
All the relevant info should be contained in the reblogged post!
