Half-Sick of Shadows

Are you sure? Now, this is not gonna be pretty. We’re talking violence, strong language, adult content…


"There is a perception that speaking up for boundaries is somehow introducing conflict into a situation, or at very least, escalating it in an unkind way, like, everything was fine until you spoke up for your needs and now you made it weird. But not speaking up is not making the situation better, it’s just giving the other person more license to operate and communicating that you are okay with the behavior. There is no prize for being the world’s most stoic and accommodating person. A friendship that cannot survive a the momentary discomfort of you standing up for your needs is not actually a friendship worth holding onto.

Nobody loves being told that they are screwing up, obviously, but if you don’t have the ability to ever take any negative feedback along the lines of “Hey, could you not do that one thing anymore, thanks?” from a friend, YOU are the problem. When told that they are stepping on someone’s foot, good adult people will apologize and get off the foot and not perpetuate a FEELINGSDUMP about their need to really stand on feet sometimes. Communicating “Hey, that’s where my boundary is, thanks” IS KINDNESS. It is giving the other person the tools they need to be in a good relationship with you."

Interesting look at “Frozen” and some of its themes and how it portrays them.

I own a pug and I still don’t know if they are really real.

I don’t know why, but I’m really digging working with these square canvas’! So I’ve been listening to “Let It Go” on repeat for literally no reason today, so eventually I ended up working on this. I’m actually pretty happy with how this came out, for a speed painting, and I’ve been loving this more rough, painterly style more and more. I’ve been drawing a lot of Expressionist influences, and I’m hoping it shows, even in my illustrations. #frozen #disney #elsa #letitgo

What shall we die for?: A Pirates of the Caribbean AU for The Hobbit

20 years after the island fortress long ruled by his line is ravaged and captured by a rogue admiral commanding The Desolation,Thorin, heir of the greatest line of pirates the Caribbean has ever known, is given a mysterious key and map said to lead to The Lonely Island and the cursed gold that drove his forefathers mad. Thorin must now cobble together a crew of his former shipmates, his nephews who had previously thought their uncle to be no more than a failed merchant, and the Caribbean’s most talented thief who moonlights as a mere grocer.

However, The Court of the Free Peoples, no more than a loose alliance of pirate kingdoms, is wary of war returning to the Caribbean. Thorin will awaken more than canonfire with his quest and as the battle for the freedom of the seas begins, Thorin and his crew must determine whether their loyalties lie with the cursed gold awaiting them or with their pirate brethren fighting for liberty.

JANUARY IS BORING, LET’S DRAW COMICS!

The holidays are over and there’s not much going on, so let’s have some fun! Me and my friends pigeony and internetkatze are challenging ourselves to complete comics of at least 15 pages in length during the month of January. It’s like 24 hour comics day but less stressful and sleep-deprived! We’ll be posting our wips and finished stuff in the tag #january comic month 2014.

It’s not anything big and official, but we hope you’ll join us!


Ok so when someone erases and then reposts the bit of original writing under a graphic so it looks like THEY wrote it, (in addition to erasing the link to the rest of that graphic series) does one call them out on it or
