23 year old artist, this is my personal, unprofessional blog. Nothing to take seriously, its mostly homestuck, art I like, conversations with friends and silly stuff.

This is the most important thing in the whole world to me right now. I’m having a SIGNIFICANT reaction to this song. It’s painful and poignant and I’m in love with every second of it. I keep listening to it like it’s the only thing keeping me breathing.

The Way

DC: Wonder Woman is too difficult to find a movie audience for-

Marvel: YO YOU LIKE BLACK WIDOW? HERE SHE IS IN THE NEXT CAPTAIN AMERICA MOVIE WITH A TON OF SCREENTIME AND MAJOR ASSKICKING SKILLS

DC: We can't allow the lesbians in Batwoman to get married in the comic, sorry.

Marvel: HEY GUESS WHAT WE'RE GONNA FEATURE A GAY WEDDING ON THE COVER OF AN X-MEN ISSUE

DC: The new direction for storytelling needs to be dark, gritty, mature and cynical.

Marvel: DUDE CHECK IT OUT LOKI GOES SPEED DATING IS THAT NOT THE BEST SHIT EVER

DC: After years of rumors, the Superman/Batman movie is finally coming, but with a new actor and suit for Batman and MAYBE a cameo from Wonder Woman.

Marvel: PHASE 2 MOTHERFUCKERS EVERYONE IS IN EVERYONE'S MOVIE AND THERE AIN'T NO STOPPIN US NOW

DC: We can try to add maybe one or two 'people of color' to our lineup...maybe...

Marvel: NEW MS MARVEL THAT'S MUSLIM AMERICAN, BITCHES.

DC: We feel no problem with Batman's vengeful personality being like wet cardboard.

Marvel: NEW LATINA GHOST RIDER WHO SEEKS VENGEANCE WHILE TAKING HIS AWEET LIL BRO FOR ICE CREAM

DC: We can't mention any superhero titles in our movies, that's ridiculous.

Marvel: FUCK YEAH YOU WANT A RACOON VOICED BY BRADLEY COOPER WITH A GIANT GUN? YOU WANT VIN DIESEL PLAYING A TREE? AMY FUCKING POND PLAYING A SEXY BALD SPACE PIRATE? HERE YOU FUCKERS GO

DC: Our fanbase is mostly white males, I'm sure our focus is-

Marvel: NEW SHE HULK LINE WHERE SHE GOES TO COURT THEN SAVES NEW YORK

DC: Wait-

Marvel: NEW FEMALE THOR

DC: I didn't-

Marvel: NEW BLACK CAPTAIN AMERICA

Marvel: TAKE ALL THIS COOL SHIT MARVEL BE OUTIE

Marvel: PEACE

The Graceful Sculptures of

Forest Rogers

Just a word here, for the moment. I studied stage design at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, receiving an MFA in Costume Design. I make critters, both ‘fine’ and commercial. More anon!

Awesome! This is the stuff of dreams!

I took a couple of hours out of my day to be on a panel for Young Author’s Day, an event put on by the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association. I was invited to join by John Lustig, who I feel very lucky to call my friend and mentor. We answered the usual questions about the writing process and how we broke into comics, but I was even more intrigued by the audience. Notice something about them?
Yeah. GIRLS. Very. Young. Girls.
So I asked THEM some questions. “How many of you read comics?”
All hands went up.
"How many of you want to make comics some day?"
Most of the hands went up.
Here’s where it really got interesting. “How many of you BUY comics?”
Only one hand raised. I asked her where she buys her comics. She said, “At the comic book store.”
"Do you have a comic book store you like going to?" I asked.
She hesitated. “It’s complicated.”
That’s 10 year-old speak for “I have to go there to get comics but the store makes me uncomfortable.” The rest of them read webcomics. None of them had heard of Comixology before, but they knew all about it by the time the panel was over. What comic would they like to see most? Minecraft. Only Steve needs to be a girl.
It was a fascinating experience, especially in the wake of this article detailing why girls in the 1980s (like me and one of the moms nodding eagerly in the audience) stopped buying comics for 20 years.
The future of comics is bright indeed.

This is absolutely wonderful.

I wonder if when your mother picked out your name if she thought about how hard it would be to spit out, how easily it would come out in a whisper, and how much agony it would cause when you’re gone.

Be like the fox who makes more tracks than necessary,
some in the wrong direction.
Practice resurrection.

If they miss you, they’ll call. If they want you, they’ll say it. If they care, they’ll show it. And if not, they aren’t worth your time.

I go through phases. Somedays I feel like the person I’m supposed to be, and then somedays, I turn into no one at all. There is both me and my silhouette. I hope that on the days you find me and all I am are darkened lines, you still are willing to be near me.

[homestucks nodding as they reblog]

I swear I’ve never seen a fandom as chill about hate as Homestuck. Someone goes “HOMESTUCK SUCKS BLUH BLUH” and the Homestuck it’s directed at will just high-five them and go “DAMN STRAIGHT LOOK AT THIS BULLSHIT”

journalisticjesus asked
Ra, Osiris, Morrigan, Loki, Ares, Hades, Morpheus. Bonus round: Artemis (How good are you at pursing and capturing the things you want?)

Ra: Do you have any major responsibilities or importance?

I am the sole caretaker of my cat. I believe that’s important, since her little life is dependent on me. Otherwise I have a responsibility to myself to try to make art.

Osiris: Do you believe in the underworld?

No, not in a supernatural heaven/hell way. I have some beliefs about the beneathworld but I haven’t sorted those out yet.

Morrigan: What do you think happens when we die?

I think we go back to a state of being inert? I don’t know. I don’t believe in an afterlife, but I do believe some things are sacred, even after death.

Loki: What is the best trick you’ve ever pulled on someone?

Eh I have a story but I’m not in the mood to tell it. Later

Ares: Are you an easy person to anger?

A little bit, I’m rather easy to calm down too though, if you know how.

Hades: Do you have a bad reputation?

Yeah, I think I do.

Morpheus: Do you daydream often? Of what?

Art and love and people’s interactions and fantasy adventures, places to travel, sex, etc. Lots of art.

Artemis: How good are you at pursuing and capturing the things you want?

Very actually. I chase things hard, and usually with very little hesitation. I beat myself up a lot about not working hard enough but I think I usually work harder than I give myself credit for. I chase and get things in my professional life with school and such, and in love, and in sex, and in fun things. I’m just very active and vocal about what I want.
