So, we're about to head on into Chapter 5 of HB, who'da thought I'd even get passed chapter 1, right? I can't say this enough, thankyou everyone who's been following, I never thought a fandom as obscure as this would have such a successful turnout. I even notice that people who aren't even big fans of Osmosis Jones follow along, people who haven't even /seen/ the movie read it, and that's pretty damn cool..! So, thankyou thankyou thankyou, you're the bestest
On a related note, my co-writer :iconShadow-Hoshi: told me that the comic's birthday will be coming up towards the end of June and thought it might be fun to do something special for it... So, since she'll be visiting that week, we had the idea of maybe doing a live Q&A on livestream, kinda like a panel at a convention. You guys could come, get on the chat and ask your questions and she and I would be on camera answering. If you guys like the sound of that, let us know in the comments and we'll make it happen!

Franchise Remix - FSRXYou know what’s cool? Cool stuff.Franchise Remix - FSRX1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
You know what else is cool? Doing cool things.
What if one could do cool things with cool stuff? (GENIUS)
Welcome to a fortnightly activity in which you basically tell me what to draw. The focus being: crossovers between any two franchises.
I will have 2 polls running, each with 10 different franchises – one determines the subject and the other determines the theme. Every second week, I’ll take the highest voted franchises from each list and combine them with an illustration into a Frankenstein’s monster of franchises – the “Franchistein”, if you will.
Additionally, there will be 2 similar polls formed with any and all suggestions you make. These determine which franchises will appear in the top 10 lists.
I created a few examples, to give you an idea of the remixes:
Legend of Zelda + Tron
Alice in Wonderland +
Why so positive?It's the little things. A friend messaged me noting that I've been a lot happier lately and I wanted to just share what I've been doing, on the off chance it might help someone else.Why so positive?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm starting slow because I'm pretty broken. The slightest bit of negativity can send me spiraling down out of control in a heartbeat. So first.. I am doing the forgiveness challenge regularly, even for little things (because it's the little things that bog me down). I'm slowly training my brain to... let go.
I've joined a tumblr blog called 'unfuckyourhabitat', that is all about just.. blunt reminders every day that you can do it, when it comes to self care. It gives you little daily steps to help cut down clutter, get through the mess and get yourself together. Plus the writer casually cusses the way I do, so I feel comfortable reading it. I've been doing at least ONE thing towards self care every single day. Sometimes it's making my bed. Sometimes it's just.. brushing my hair. But either way I do
Don't be afraidAll your life people are going to knock you down. They're going to call you names, they're going to drag you down into the mud. And unfortunately, you are part of that mob of faceless people who'll drag you down as well. You'll look in the mirror and say "I'm not good enough". You'll work real hard and it just won't be enough. You'll be different from everyone else and wonder "What's wrong with me."Don't be afraid1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you're lucky, you'll get really good at something. Really great at it. People will compliment you and you'll swell with pride... and then be told "Don't be arrogant". "Don't be too cocky" for showing pride in your accomplishments. If you're a woman and you KNOW something is right, and you stand up for your opinions, well... you'll be called opinionated. Bossy. You'll be knocked down, the legs kicked out from under you to bring you back down to the level of everyone else.
And then you'll start apologizing. You'll start being ashamed of the things you were proud of. You'll start prefacing
Exploring Art 50: Food for thought.Been at the doctor this week. A few hours of boredom meant that I did math. For fun.Exploring Art 50: Food for thought.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't have a point to this, just some numbers I'd like to put out there in the universe.
Minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.
Full time work is 40 hours a week.
A full time worker on min wage makes $290 a week or roughly $1160 a month.
Suppose an artist makes prints and sells them for $10 a piece. In order to make $1160 a month, they will need to sell roughly 4 prints per day ($40 a day), or 29 per week ($290 a week), or approximately 116 prints a month.
With 12 months in the year, an artist would need to sell 1392 prints per year.
Now. If the artist is getting those prints for free, that would be okay. But let's assume that the artist didn't want to mark up very much, and so let's say the prints cost $5 each to make (just for the sake of easy math, that's including packaging, matting, and the print itself. That's not a real number, I just want something that breaks into percentages easily). That means 50%
Exploring Art 48: Why are you an artist?So. I'm sitting here nibbling on brownies that I am supposed to be mailing to my friends, staring at a list of work to be done tomorrow and pretending like I'm not supposed to be asleep at this very moment.Exploring Art 48: Why are you an artist?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
While I sit here, I'm reading emails and someone brought up the inquiry as to why I'm even an artist.
You know. I never really sat down and THOUGHT about it. It's something I have literally done my entire life. I'm pretty sure my dad was stuffing crayons in my hands while I was still in the crib. I'm the girl who started at school at *six years old*, six people. The concept of NOT doing art at some point in my life simply was not even entertained.
That said. I'd like to look at why I do art now. Why DO I do art?
In thinking about it, I've come to realize that there are a variety of reasons. Some poetic, some pragmatic, but all of them play a pretty large role in why I'm an artist. So let's wander those reasons.
I like to draw pretty things. No really. It makes me happy to make prett
Exploring Art 44: BrainstormSo. I have the flu. The great thing about being sick is that you're stuck in place for so long, that your brain kind of roams like crazy. If you're not used to that, well it can be a really surreal experience. But the way my thoughts have been jumping all over the place put me in the mind of a question someone asked me a while back.Exploring Art 44: Brainstorm2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"How do you get your ideas". That's usually followed by talk of being in a rut, stumped, not really sure what think of, etc. I spent the past week giving ideas to people (and if I didn't get to your question in a comment, they get lost SUPER easy as I have 717 if them to reply to right now. So message me on a note) and it confused my friend. She watched me go 'one sec need to post some ideas' and then type for a few minutes before bouncing over to go and help her with her project. It was a foreign concept to her, that ideas are a dime a dozen, and that to me is not a state we should be in as artists. Do you guys remember my Ideas painting? I posted it after
