Little thing I did for an article in The Link about Concordia University’s (hopefully) upcoming Major in Sexuality. A looser approach seems to get better results most of the time…
A little pixel thing I made for The Link’s article on Gamerella. I think pixel art is the coolest shit and I’ll hopefully be doing more of it in the future.
A gif I made for The Link’s Mental Health Issue! Simple gifs like this are surprisingly easy to make on Photoshop. This might be the thing I’m most proud of from my time at The Link, which has been marred by a lot of illustrations I’m not proud of.
Gonna tryyyyyy to update this blog more! Here’s a submission I made for Ryan Humphrey’s Parappa the Rapper zine. That game is pretty neat.
monohedral asked: your sketches seem to be very simplistic, and you're able to capture a personality without using exact proportions. I am incredibly jealous of your skill !
oh dont be jealous at all! some of the lines seem simple in ways but i would say that can boil down to confidence. it may sound like a smug thing to say, but if you are sure of applying line onto paper in a way where you dont feel pressure but assurance then it can look easy.
whenever you feel pressure into making something it then leads it to going wrong and making you feel terrible, if you relax as an artist and naturally let go you can make anything really fun. thats what i do. if something looks out of place i work with it and let it be. besides adding some character into work makes it all the worth while!
I typically don’t reblog, but damn, this is worth sharing.
Pop Culture Grumble Grumble #1: Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job!'sRichard Dunn
Although I’ve become too enmeshed in the internet age to actually buy one of their DVDs - which is the only safe way I know of to actually watch more than three full episodes at once - I’ve really gotten into Tim and Eric this summer. I could go on for a while about the anti-stars of Awesome Show - how they basically stab the entertainment industry in the gut and disembowel it - but nobody wants to read that.
Richard Dunn was the most compelling element of the show. This was a man who willingly and joyfully participated in humour that went right over the heads of most people a third of his age. In an interview I watched, he said that he believed you could learn something from everyone you meet, no matter who they are. No, it isn’t trite. Richard Dunn was too real for triteness. That’s the show’s triumph.
please bear with me it’s probably going to get weird
They’ve receded, back to the past, inside the skull, is it the same place. They’ll never appear to me again, I can’t afford it; from now on I’ll have to live in the usual way, defining them by their absence; and love by its failures, power by its loss, its renunciation.
