hakudragon asked: Hi! I was wondering if you could tell me some things about your experience at MCAD? I was looking into it for transfer for my junior year and then realized that you attended. And since I love your work I'd thought I would go ahead and ask you! :3

i personally loved my experience at mcad!  the comic department is relatively small in the school, but all the teachers in the program are really great and you get a lot of individual attention.  i can’t speak for the other majors, though i did take quite a lot of illustration courses (which i also enjoyed), but the comic major was really closely knit cuz there weren’t that many of us and most of us worked at least some of the time in the comic studio so you pretty much got to know everyone at least a little.

it’s a lot of work, but for me it was worth it.  i really feel like it helped me come into my own as an artist. i have more info in my mcad tag!

art school isn’t for everyone, especially in this economy, but i am really grateful for my college experience.

hi, guys! as quite a few of you probably know, i recently moved across the country! doing that is insanely expensive and is leaving my funds severely depleted and i still need to be able to buy some nice things for my new apartment and a cat tree for my adorable cat ophelia. unfortunately (or fortunately for you all), all that stuff is pretty dang expensive, so i’ve decided to make a new commissions post!

about these commissions:

  • availability is limited. i will stop taking commissions when i have raised sufficient funds.
  • prices are per character
  • prices are for non-commercial work only*
  • i retain all rights to the finished images
  • i retain the right to turn down any commission i do not feel comfortable drawing
  • you must be able to pay upfront, though if needed we can negotiate a payment plan
  • if needed, i can provide a first revision of the finished image for free. additional revisions will be priced on a case by case basis
  • commissions do not include backgrounds
  • prices do not include any major design work
  • i take payment through paypal

solola007 asked: I was just wondering if you had selfies to show the differences between all your hair styles like in that comic? All those hair styles are super cute and I'm wondering what they look like in real life :)

thanks!  i have a lot of pics in my hair tag on my personal blog, plus my general self tag

all i want to know is how many ten year old poke-master-wannabes you had to beat up to get this url

(the answer is none, ten year olds are not allowed on tumblr dot com, that was a trick question)

holdtightclothing asked: Time to take out the trash. To dinner. To a steakhouse. Unless you're a vegetarian/vegan. Then onwards to a vegetarian restaurant. Or maybe just some coffee. How about next time we meet, I'll bring you Starbucks.

hahahahaha omfg you are a card

dendropsyche asked: I like how your hair in 2009 starts off short, then gradually gets longer and cycles back to an even shorter cut in the present xD cute!

that is my cycle. i chop my hair off into a pixie cut every 4-5 years or so and then slowly let it grow out.  the last time i grew it out my hair reached my mid back before i got bored and chopped it all off.  it also helps that my hair grows pretty fast.  

i’m really liking having short hair tho so i don’t know if i’m gonna grow it out again any time soon.

soooo this is probably the most horribly self indulgent thing i have ever done, but i’ve been wanting to make a hair + make up progression for a while and since i’m too tired to do any real work right now, i figured now was as good a time as any.

starts with 2009, the end of high school and the last year i had my natural color, and ends with my current hair.

i may be trash for making this but at least i am cute trash
