Thanks again for all the birthday wishes! I can enter old age with high spirits now.
Yeah I haven’t choked on an action figure yet
So proud. Totally worth it
This is going to be Saint Peter and I when he won’t open the gates.
I don’t even know how Mike Wazowski got in there but I felt like doodling Tokyo Ghoul. Trash’s design is so trashy that when I finally looked at a reference I had to go back to my drawings and make him trashier.
Y’all wish me Happy Birthday faster than my actual family. My mom came up and was talking to me about which fabric I wanted to order as my present without actually realizing it’s my birthday
I spent all yesterday re-lining my old paintbox. The last picture is the previous lining: I don’t know how old, soaked with gambol and linseed oil and who knows what else, cracking glue dissolved by solvents. I’m no longer using it for oil but for ink! Oh man, it’s going to be ruined quickly…
I WAS WORKING ON A PRINT AND MESSING AROUND WITH THE BACKGROUND AND I GUESS IT WAS ON THE WRONG LAYER WHAT THE HELL
This is a poor photo of a last minute gouache painting I did for my cousin. Our tradition used to be giving each other hand made presents every summer and winter…but now that we’re actually good at making stuff we don’t have the time.
Another piece of college advice
I would like to add to my freshman advice and say LEARN THE NAMES OF THE STAFF especially if you see them on a daily basis!!! A lot of people treat the staff like robots which is not okay. If you are personable with them, they will be with you.
An example is there is this check-out lady who I’ve known the name of for a long time, but she’s always really angry-looking so I’m too scared to say anything more than “Hey.” One day I was in a brave mood so I said in a friendly tone “Hey ____, how are you?” and her expression brightened immediately. The kitchen staff that I speak with more regularly are really sweet and almost always give me discounts. Plus they work long-ass shifts so you might as well try to brighten things up for them.
