Me as Dave Chappelle’s Prince at Kamicon 2014
A cosplay I didn’t know I both wanted and needed to see. Ty.
I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.
The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time). Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia? And not just with the kids, but with each other. I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything. They don’t treat their children like children. They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point.
It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.
Even when they get a “normal” child, they try so hard to let him have a what he needs even though it’s not what’s the norm for them.
everything about the winter olympics so far has been a mess and i love it. i mean it sucks for athletes since this is supposed to be their big event but anything that makes vladimir putin look incapable of handling responsibility makes my day
Notice how Shan Yu doesn’t even question it or make a comment about “BUT YOU’RE A GIRL” he just instantly goes into a “I’LL TEACH YOU TO KILL MY MEN AND STEAL MY VICTORY” rage and I think about this a lot sometimes
((Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun. Women among the Huns had higher status than their Chinese counterparts and even some of their own men. Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders. So for Shan Yu Mulan is just another soldier))
the future is now

This was my comic for Comic Book Slaughter Party, the CBSP Halloween anthology that came out in the past month or so. I’m not sure how successful it is (it’s had a pretty mixed response), but I had a blast working on it.
Greasy is CBSP’s mascot- a great design by Donya Todd- and I wanted to play with anthropomorphism in the story, among other things. Contrast different types of anthopomorphism against eachother, and facing soft teen punks against a harsh alien reality. Probably helped that I’d watched a lovecraftian body horror the week before, haha!
This was pretty speedy for me- finished in less than a week- and I had a great time playing with the colours in the comic. I’ve always loved Dave Stewart’s minimal colouring when working with Mignola, and recently read the new Hawkeye comic, which has consistently fantastic colour palettes by Matt Hollingsworth. As someone who personally can find it difficult to simplify things, it’s a great lesson to learn how effective flat colours can be.
Speaking of good colours- while I’m not entirely sure I could recommend the book any more, Michael Sanlaville’s art in Rocher Rouge has fantastic colour and motion to it. It’s a hammy exploitation style teen-horror book, but the artwork’s amazing. I haven’t had the chance to check it out yet, but I’m pretty sure for the last year or so Sanlaville has been working on Lastman, with Bastien Vives and Balak.
This has singlehandedly made me interested in this anthology
