Sorry To Burst Your Masturbatory Comic Bubble (No, I'm Not) →

thebirdandthebat:

I have a theory on why a small segment of men who read comics send rape threats to women who write about comics. To put it simply, they think we’re destroying their masturbatory fantasies (literal or otherwise).

You may laugh but it’s quite possibly the source of all the hatemongering. They’re…

Jill and Janelle are friends and trusted, respected colleagues.
This shit should NOT be happening. Not to women, not to ANYONE.

I am sick of hearing my friends and fellow professionals being threatened and shamed and fearing for their safety because they DARE express an opinion that just MAYBE, we’re all equal here and entitled to equal representation and an end to horrible, demeaning stereotypes.

SPEAK UP if you witness abuse or harassment. Men, call out other men if they are being disrespectful, ignorant, abusive assholes. An end to the marginalizing of women in comics needs EVERYONE.

After having created one of the world’s most viral videos, then followed up with a game app which went to #1 in 18 countries with over 30 million players, McCann Melbourne and Metro Trains have created a range of plush toys in the latest extension of the Dumb Ways to Die rail safety campaign. The toys will be sold globally, and be available in sizes from tiny to ridiculously huge. Every toy will be tagged to link back to the DWTD website which is full of safety tips.
How can we create this kind of enthusiasm around our ad messages?

I need the dude who sold his kidneys on the internet!!

When I saw this ep, I announced on Twitter I would call Bronies ‘Equesticles’ from now on. Half of the responses were Bronies going ‘I LOVED THAT EPISODE, it was HILARIOUS!’. Fine lads.

Then there was the other half who went ‘oh god no…’

I leaned back in my chair, steepled my fingers and went >:D

A great comic telling people to stand up for their fellow fans!

You want to know how terrible that these douche bags can get? I made a Sailor Venus cosplay for my younger sister who looked amazing and proud to wear it. I made sure she wore white shorts that covered her panties and stopped where the skirt ended, (because of the horror stories we heard about perverts taking pictures up cosplayers’ skirts without consent) Turns out there were jerks trying to take pics up her skirt, but started to complain to each other that she was wearing shorts under and it wasn’t fair. SHE WAS UNDERAGE AT THE TIME OF WEARING THIS COSPLAY! Not only were they attempting sexual harassment, but ON A MINOR! Please, reblog this, spread the word, and stand up for other cosplayers if you see/hear this.

they were complaining because it wasn’t fair

#THIS 

unicorn-meat-is-too-mainstream:

This beautiful mineral was recently sold for a whopping $5,000 by Rob Lavinsky of the Arkenstone. Measuring 9 x 7 x 6 centimeters, the stunning specimen is described as Chalcedony on Chrysocolla stalactites (pocket). With a blue-green chalcedony-crusted exterior, an unusual pocket that opens to reveal the highly textured interior, and assorted quartz-covered chrysocolla stalactites the color of icy glaciers, the mineral is truly a unique sight to behold.

Something a little more personal.

Since my move to California, there had been a lot of self-doubt about my level of talent and whether or not I should have made the choices I’ve made leading up to this point. As I’ve said in this, even when it seems as though everything’s not going well, life has a way of turning things around when you work hard enough to make that happen.

Even though what I’m saying is pretty much general knowledge, I made this more for myself than anyone else…but it’s something I hope someone could look at now and later. To remind themselves of their potential, whether they believe they have it or not. I myself still have a ways to go, but I continue creating art and remaining more hopeful than ever.

HOWREFERENCESWORK

POR SIEMPRE!

Reference is important for LEARNING.  If you know you can’t seem to get something right, reference it.  
You’re ability to recall how something works without the use of reference is what you’re trying to achieve.  Don’t mistake this as saying “You always need reference.”
It doesn’t mean you suddenly stop drawing from imagination as a result.  In fact, now you can do more thanks to have LEARNED from reference.

Fun fact: Artists are always learning. They never stop. 

NOPE. NEVER.
