TWO! ARTPOSTS! THIS! MONTH!|
So I've been hugely busy with commissions, work and finally coming out to my Dad (I KNOW RIGHT!!!) and then I spent a week in Sweden with Nathan and then I spent the week after that pining (NOTE: STILL PINING) so... you're lucky you got this, basically!
Pretty good though: no porn (sort of) in this one, though there is a bit of half nudity and, er, Pokemon. And some uniform. Not as much as there would have been, but. there is.
Let us begin our quest with two tattoo designs for myself what I did. Well, what I sort of did.
I've always wanted a Chaos star tattoo, in black and green, but I've been drawing a blank with designs. So I got Nathan to do me one, as he's fabulous with radial patterns, and this is adequately COMPLETELY FUCKED-UP AND IRREGULAR which still retaining an impression of rotational symmetry and sharpness. I kept veering off into tribal designs, which is the opposite of what I wanted, but this is just right. Perfect.
I always said that coming out to my Dad would require me to grow two back-up spines. And I have done. So:
The most perfect tramp stamp design I have ever.
I love the phrase "tramp stamp" by the way. I know it's hella problematic, but I don't think being likened to a sex worker is a terrible thing at all, and rather like the idea of a thing you can have stamped on you to mark you out as being one of those promiscuous types. Because sex is nice, lots of it is nice, and having lots of partners is okay. SO I like the phrase "tramp stamp" and I like that it's a tattoo in a good area.
Good job, really, since I'm having one.
I haven't drawn any oni for a while.
I wanted to at least try for a trad Japanese painting style, but failed miserably. OH WELL :D
Then it was birds.
Drawing silly little pictures of birds is really soothing. They're put together really nicely. This is a European Jay (right) and Articuno (left). One of these is a fictional bird. Which handily OPENS UP THE POKEMON ART FLOODGATES!!!!
ABSOL GIJINKA O'CLOCK
I love drawing this guy.
But, er, I actually find the non-gijinka-ed version sexier.
BECAUSE I AM WRONG IN THE HEAD :D
okay no pokemon art cascade is complete without
MISDREAVUS MY FAVOURITE
Blod why are you so agonisingly cute ;___;
More Blod, this time with Mal, who really shouldn't be this enthusiastic about the Vengaboys.
Oh and then I drew Weiss because
I know that look in your eye.
you want to know about SWEDISH TRAINS
I completely lost my shit IRL and all over Twitter about the train we caught from Malmö to... wherever it was that we went. It had BLINDS. I was just thinking about how bright the sun was, and how nice it would be if it wasn't in my eyes, but with the air of resignation you get when you know your wish but a tiny luxury will never be fulfilled WHEN NATHAN PULLED THE BLIND DOWN AND THE BRIGHTNESS STOPPED AND I THINK I SHRIEKED
THE TOILETS ARE CLEAN!!! AND HAVE WATER IN!! AND YOU CAN USE THEM AT STATIONS BECAUSE THEY'RE A PROPER FLUSHING THING RATHER THAN BASICALLY A CATAPULT THAT FLINGS YOUR TURDS OUT INOT THE COUNTRYSIDE!!! THERE WAS SOAP!!! AND HAND-TOWELS RATHER THAN THE DYING BREATH OF A LEPEROUS DOG FROM A VENT IN THE WALL!! AND A SHOP FULL OF FOOD!!! AND YOU GET A FREE SECOND CUP OF COFFEE!!! AND THERE WERE GLASS DOORS!!! AND BIG TABLES!!! AND LEG ROOM!!! AND GLASS IN THE WINDOWS!!! AND BREATHABLE AIR!!! I ACTUALLY GOT A SEAT!!! NO-ONE SHAT ON MY LEG!!!
puts british trains to shame
AND THEN I drew a million pictures of Nathan, well three, you don't get to see the third lol sorry
he has a good face
I miss him a lot THE END
That is all! Please leave a contribution in the little box.
