Oh, you wish you were me. It's MCM Expo and my birthday and Eurovision final next weekend and I literally couldn't be more excited. I pre-emptively celebrated last night, therefore, by running around like a blue-arsed fly trying to find a box of stock that I'd imagined into existence when it didn't really and never did. That's how cool I am.|
Anyway, here's THE ONLY ARTPOST HOLY SHIT for this month, and I apologise for that, but I've... been busy. It's a good one, though, and well worth the wait - I promise. Even I'm happy with this one!
Here's this. I've decided that I've had enough of pretending I'm not massively obsessed with end-of-the-world mythos, and in celebration of that, here's SHIT FROM REVELATIONS WHEEE.
And... then I drew my crew!
Here's Alamut/Ruin. Because... well, why not? He's been drifting in and out a lot recently.
I haven't JACOBED in AGES. JACOB. Jaaaaaacob. I tried PERSPECTIVE in this? but apparently that's for adults.
...TIME FOR PORN. This is the worst porn. The hideousest. I realised I hadn't drawn any porn for ages, so I was like, what is the WORST pairing I could conceivably draw? Oh yes! Of course!
BABYLON AND BLODEUWEDD.
YOU'RE WELCOME :D
so then it was time for TATTOO DESIGNS.
This is my burds. They're going on my thigh in what will basically be a very expensive, very time-consuming graze.
This is already on my leg! It's my reworking of one of Aubrey Beardsley's peacock feathers from his illustration The Climax for Oscar Wilde's Salome. It's the one where she's all, FWAHAHA JOHN I HAVE SNOGGED THEE etc.
AND THEN (tum) I drew shit from OUTSIDE LIFE
like a dog!
and my mate Mia!
who was so good I drew her twice!
RIGHT GOOD GOT ALL THAT EXCELLENT
fufufufu, how lovely. I just love your style so, L.
also, Ruin is so badass. :|
asjhdsdklhg YOU ARE ON HERE TOO wait let me add you to our real journalating account
Ruin hurts me with his badassery
I AM EVERYWHERE, L
used to be under a different account, but I've been on IJ for years. XD
*accidentally swallows her own tongue* *manages weak grabby hands* Any, uh, any chance that you might sell prints of Wormwood? I need it on my wall because of reasons that have nothing to do with the amazing water and the star and that Revelation has always been my favourite part of the Bible. (I didn't even realise those weren't mounds of white river sand but people when I first looked. Ngh. ♥)
Babylon reminds me; may we recommend you an anthology of 26 short stories? It's called Creatures: Thirty years of monsters, edited by John Langan and Paul Tremblay, and it's basically what it says on the tin. I just finished it and I'm still creeped. Counted only three stories that mildly disappointed but all the rest were amazing.
I really like the drawings of your friends because even though there is a 'this was drawn from real life' quality to them, they remain so distinctly in your style. :) (... Been wanted to be drawn by you for a while. Meep.)
You look right majestetic riding that bird, you.
Yes, prints of Wormwood will happen - there's a real run being done at the moment and that'll be ready early next week. Revelations is obviously the best bit of the Bible on account of EVERYTHING BEING AWESOME IN IT FOREVER.
Yes, you may! Thank you, I'll check that out ;D
If you want to be drawn by me, it's simple! WE MEET THE FUCK UP AND YOU STAY STILL FOR FIVE MINUTES :D :D :D brb moving to finland
<3 <3 <3
Ooh, man. That feather tattoo is even awesomer than I thought. :D :D
And I just fucking absolutely love your bird drawings. :D :D
It looks even better on my leg! :D
Thank you! I tried to do them in a ...realistic sort of style, but um. but then how I draw things usually kind of happened to them and they weren't. OH WELL
That Beardsley peacock feather is made of fap, good sir.
(nabbing Jonathan's icon because close enough)
- a person who doesn't have an online persona anymore
PS reading Dorian Gray and aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my manly nature it burns with the hotness of a million suns etc
Oh Lucian, Wormwood is gorgeous art-wise (and I don't really care about the bible). It has such an eerie feel to it. The sky is gorgeous. The meteor is gorgeous. It has you written all over it. Stylistically stunning. Not the subject matter that I'd necessarily want on the wall but stunning to look at.
I really like the colouration on Ruin.
Also can't wait to see your tattoos! I hope that you enjoy MCM as well as being mega successful!
THIS ENTIRE POST IS MADE OF FABULOUS
