in case you were wondering why i’ve been silent! i’m working on a webcomic called gutless. the website is in progress, and i’ve been busy with my girlfriend visiting from london so the project is on hold for the moment. it’s going to be full of gender & sexuality issues and shiz— princesses, magic, monsters, knights, all that biz. stay tuned.

Anonymous asked: you have some art tumblr to recommend?

yep!

heya, i think i promised a rundown of all the supplies i use and i keep gettin’ questions so here you gooo (from left to right)
sablette brushes. utrecht makes nice quality alternatives to sable brushes that are fairly inexpensive. i have about seven different sizes, these are just the ones i use most often. some of them are designated for inking.
dr. martin’s black star matte india ink!!!! i cannot recommend this enough. it’s the blackest ink i’ve ever used and it dries very fast— it’s also incredibly matte. it basically looks like you made a black hole in your paper.
pentel pocket brush pen. i keep this in my travel case and it’s amaaazing. so versatile with a good flow— the only problem is that it uses cartridges to refill and they can be quite expensive.
rotring isograph pen (.18) for sketching and inking. the epitome of all technical drawing pens, for me. it comes apart and is refillable. it has a wire tip which is quite fragile, but the tips are replaceable (it has duct tape on it because i’m a dolt and i hold my pen weird so i broke it but i refuse to buy another one because $$$)
derwent waterbrushes for watercolor sketching and painting. very useful for traveling! 
chartpak AD markers. really really smelly (they’re alcohol based) but really lovely. the colors are buildable, to a point, although they do bleed when used on regular paper.
sharpie paint markers (oil based & water based) used mainly just for sketching.
mod podge! this shit is the bomb. i use it to glue stuff into my sketchbook and for collaging. it’s legitimately the best for anything honestly. 
sennelier watercolor paints. the best watercolor paints i’ve ever used. expensive, but entirely worth it. super duper pigmented and smooth and blendable. just lovely.
cretacolor monolith woodless graphite pencils. these aren’t the best but i enjoy using them. be warned, i had a 9B pencil and it snapped in half one day, just from being carried around in my pencil case. anyway they’re pretty smooth and nice and i keep coming back to them so yeh.
staedtler non-photo blue pencil for undersketches!
i also occasionally use prismacolor colored pencils. 
i hope this was helpful! ヽ(=^・ω・^=)丿

anxiety sketching. (it’s not a purple sketchbook— sometimes when i fuck up i paste paper over the messed up drawing instead of ripping the page out)

thegreattremolo asked: can you post a pic of your bat wallet?? I am so curious as to how it turned out!

wow, so weird! i just found that unfinished project in my embroidery bag and i’ve been trying to start working on it again. i’ve just been extremely busy with online classes and the comic and stuff. :{ but when i get going i’ll be sure to post some photos!

Anonymous asked: As an artist, one of the most meaningful gifts I can give a friend is a piece of my artwork. Do you remember the first drawing you gifted someone? How about the first drawing that was gifted to you? Have a great day! :)

well honestly i don’t really like to gift art because so often it ends up kind of discarded— like people ask for art as a gift and then when they get it they don’t want it or they don’t know what to do with it, or i’m too racked with anxiety thinking they don’t like it— because nothing i do is ever good enough in my eyes. so i don’t remember the first, but every drawing i’ve ever given my best friend kim is hanging up on her wall, including stupid little doodles on hotel paper pads i intended to throw away, so that is pretty special. while i was away in london my amazing friend nikki painted a picture of me from one of our modeling sessions and gave it to me when i got home, which was pretty amazing of her. any time art is gifted to me i just want to cry with happiness because i know how vulnerable it feels to put part of your soul onto a piece of paper and give it to someone.
