Got in line around 1AM last night to get at the Con exclusive Mattel stuff, waited all night trying to sleep on the grass, got shuffled into the con sometime between 6:30 and 7AM. Went to the Sails Pavilion, asked for Mattel. Pointed along a trail of security guys saying “Mattel is this way” until…
Should I bring them back? (You can contact me if you want me to remake one NOW because I would definitely not say no to that!)
Yes or yes?
Robert was the true steel. Stannis is pure iron, black and hard and strong, yes, but brittle, the way iron gets. He’ll break before he bends. And Renly, that one, he’s copper, bright and shiny, pretty to look at but not worth all that much at the end of the day.
Andres Amador is an artist who uses the beach as his canvas, racing against the tide to create these large scale temporary masterpieces using a rake or stick ..
Andres’ creations are simply stunning and knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.
I had a think about what Sailor Moon would be in a fantasy RPG and came to a Cleric as even though she has many items, one of them is the crescent moon healing wand.
Christ I’ve been animating for so long and not drawing that now I can’t just draw something, it MUST animate … NO EXCEPTIONS (… help me)
This is unexpectedly not about make-up haha
reblogged before it was even finished.
this is such a cute philosophy
…Yes. Yes it is.
It’s inexplicably mid-July all over again, which means it’s time for San Diego Comic-Con International! I’m not tabling, but I am on four panels this year in some feeble attempt to spend as little time on the exhibition floor as is possible. I’ll also be dressed as Asha/Yara Greyjoy on Saturday, because what is SDCC without sweating through several layers of waxed linen. Here’s my schedule, if you want to track me down:
- Female Heroes, Then and Now
Thursday, July 24 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm | Room 32AB
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Heartbreakers, a groundbreaking science fiction series that was one of the first action comics starring female heroes, and the only one written by a woman when it debuted in Dark Horse Presents. Today, there are more women than ever reading and creating comics-not to mention cosplaying and writing about comics-but it seems a lot of the old biases are still entrenched. What’s changed in 25 years, and what hasn’t? Join Heartbreakers creators Anina Bennett andPaul Guinan, along with friends Jimmy Palmiotti (Painkiller Jane), Kiala Kazebee (Vaginal Fantasy), Allison Baker (Monkeybrain Comics), and Claire Hummel (Bioshock: Infinite), for a lively discussion of sexism, science fiction, comic books, and geek culture.

MCU Bucky, Sam, and Steve
HeroesCon 20414 sketch
Bucky’s grin is a bit uncanny, but I never promised amazing likenesses for these. We went the fashion route for these three, and I didn’t have too much focus on making them terribly character appropriate - I just wanted them to look goooood.
