I Don’t Want Fop, Goddammit! | archival print
My piece for Ltd. Art Gallery’s OVER THE LINE show, opening TONIGHT in Seattle! I’ll be swinging by the opening myself, if any of y’all are planning on making an appearance- looks like it’s going to be a pretty amazing spread. :)
I had a ton of ideas for this show initially, and was actually a good 60% into a piece before I switched gears and decided to do a Dapper Dan spread, a la magazine ads of the late 1930’s. I’m a sucker for typography and commercial design, not to mention George Clooney’s handsome handsome face, so this seemed like the best choice all around.
HAHAHAHA SUCKERS try to shame me now for hoarding all those interbellum era fonts
My Hatshepsut piece for the upcoming GIRLS: Fact + Fiction show, opening December 7th at the Light Grey Art Lab gallery space in Minneapolis, MN!
We were invited to draw any fictional or factual lady of our choice, so I went with Hatshepsut because, well, she’s Hatshepsut. If I am to believe all of those ancient statues of her, she looks damn fine in a pair of aviators.
I’m not going to be able to make the opening myself, but you can check out the invite for the show over on facebook if you’re so inclined and/or local. :)
PRINTS AND ART BOOK
Also worth mentioning is that the people behind Light Grey Art Lab have already set up an online store for the show! You can pick up prints of all the art, along with a limited edition art book collecting all of the pieces in the show with short blurbs about each of the featured ladies.
Finally sucked it up and submitted my entry to Project Rooftop’s Fantastic Four redesign contest! I love superhero teams, especially ones who spend a lot of their time sciencing, so this was fun.
I decided to go with a midcentury-inspired/sci-fi look for their uniforms- not the most drastic change, of course, but I wanted something sleek that played around with the 4 iconography a bit more than usual. I Also took the bodysuit-as-wearable-computer concept a bit more literally with the optional retinal HUD, and made Ben a bit of a beefcake. Because why the hell not
Reblogging old art just because I continue to get the “ummmmm I doubt Powhatan women wore skirts like that” comment ALL THE DAMN TIME
Call me out on the feathers in her hair, yes! Even her pseudo-historical leather shirt! But come on now, don’t immediately equate showing skin with historical inaccuracy. Also halter tops are totally an actual thing. And tattoos.
I’ve always assumed the women in Edwardian fashion plates are just secretly pregnant. Pretty sure that’s legit.
It’s a dangerous thing to leave fandoms to their own devices for long periods of time- they tend to get stuck in this weird feedback loop of fan theories and inside jokes, eventually superseding and enveloping the source material entirely.
No fault to the people who enjoy that sort of thing, I’ve just lost track of what Watson is supposed to be made of at this point and kinda want to get back to, y’know
the mystery stuff
If I were to write a children’s book about derailing on the internet it would totally have whales in it
This would be a great book for children AND politicians.

Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind.”
