Good day, darlings!

Quick announcement! I have some left-over tiny prints that are getting tired of being cooped up so I'm hosting a Give-Away on Tumblr :)

I'm trying to get rid of all of them because soon I'll have to vacate this flat and my luggage is not that big. Which is why there are also reduced prices and free S&H at my shop until May 1st (use NOSTAMPS code).

So, um, yeah. If you wanna get your hands on some free prints get over here :)

Hello my darlings!
How are you on this fine day?
London last week was super awesome and awfully snowy. I had to keep my hood up all day long and hide the rest of my face behind a scarf and a steaming cup of coffee.
Who cares about stupid snow when you can browse the comic bookshop for hours, though? I bought myself the prettiest mug with Worm from Labyrinth :3 It is the most precious <3 Also, I finally managed to get my hands on Soulless by Gale Carriger. OMG it is basically steampunk genderswap TW fic. How come nobody wrote and actual AU of it yet? I am looking at all of you writing people! Get started! Now!... please? :)?

Speaking of "now, please". Can it be the 16th already? I need Save Rock and Roll in my hands/ears/eyes NOW. What is your favourite song so far? I am incapable of picking just one.

In other news, I've yet to find an engaging bingo card to get the artsy juices flowing :/ Does anyone know about a 30 days challenge or something similar? I think I lost all my google-fu and I can't find anything anymore /o\ That said, I've had a little bit more time to doodle around on my sketchbook, so here, have a silly doodle about kickass teenagers.

Read more... )

And also a bunch of quick sketches from twitter prompts :)

P.S. Since London was such a blast, I'm planning on going back in a couple of weeks, so if you'll be around and want to bump tea cups let me know :D

May you get all the prettiest eggs!

Furthermore, HAPPY BIRTHDAY [ profile] hermette! Hope you get all the love and delish food and pretty presents!

Also, tiny TW Easter fanart \o/

hello hello! How have you been my lovelies? I have sort of fallen into the canyon of deep despair that is pre-finals month + RL being less that decent + me being more spazzy than usual. Whatever.

What I wanted to say is that today is Monday, but it's a very awsome one because it is [profile] chaotically_clev's birthday :D Here is the faily Hunger Games inspired birthday card I drew for her.
And speaking of Hunger Games (I hinaled the whole trilogy the past weekend and I AM HAVING ALL THE FEELINGS HOW SHALL I EVER RECOVER ;___;) my most dearest [personal profile] angelgazing wrote this utterly perfect ficlet, which wrenched my heart in all the best ways and I urge you to go read it and tell her how amazing she is and that she needs to write more! This Is the World We Wanted, run don't walk!

What else, what else... Oh yeah, remember the Epiphany doodles? They are all posted :D We had two TSN doodles, two Clint/Darcy and a bb!Thor, three Arthur/Merlin being silly and four Brendon/Spencer being adorable :) Ah, that was fun *twirls* I might do it again for the next festivity... what are your thoughts on Valentine powerdoodling?

And here, have some miscellaneous recs:

• first up, two TSN fics: Dreaming the Shades of Dawn and Dusk by [ profile] smiles1777 is a Sleeping Beauty inspired story and it wrenched my heart right out of my chest. I was quite the teary mess when I finished it but don't let the image of my blotchy red face stop you from reading it because it truly is beautiful. Brushstrokes by [ profile] hitlikehammers is another piece of utter charm: Eduardo hasn’t always been a painter, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t art inside his soul the whole time, nonetheless. It might just be that any story in which a character struggles with and talks about the creative process makes me feel a little less alone in the world and therefore makes me kinda biased, but believe me when I say that this story is lovely and you won't be disappointed.

• Pretty music from this faraway land I inhabit: Elisa's Love is requited (link goes to official video, here is a live performance and here is an mp3 download)

Nerds and male privilege, definitely worth a read :)

The Hunger Games Ponies! I can die happy now :D

Animation Concept Art Tumblr. What the tin says! This is quite the delightful little blog and it has a lovely background music (if I'm not mistaken, it's the Peter Pan soundtrack - the one with Jason Isaac, not the Disney cartoon)

And now excuse me, but I have loads of things to do... like finding a decent hairdresser to buzz off half of my hair. Or convice my mum to wield an electric rasor. Whichever. *skips away into the webz*

Hello my lovelies! And hello to the new people around here, too :D Um. I don't have an intro post... so, um, we can have an impromptu get-to-know-me Q&A? Just ask away, I promise not to bite :)

Sooo. BBB 2nd wave is about to start (how excited are we? A LOT! Also, if you follow me on twitter I apologize for all the wining I dumped on you while I was finishing my assignment :() Anyway, it looks like the Big Bangs gates have opened and it is now time to sign up for lots of other brilliant challenges :D [ profile] bandgirlsbang (yay girls \:D/) is running again this year! I am extremely happy about it *cartwheels* [ profile] inception_bang (woohoo!) is here again! If you had fun last time, you should definitely sign up again :D (I know I will!) and now, my darlings, please pay attention because we have a new entry! [ profile] eagle_bigbang! I am most excited about this because this fandom needs all the longfics! ALL OF THEM! *urges you to sign up*

Speaking of fics, here's a rec for you all TSN peeps

Pangaea by [ profile] princewardo
They have the island, the enclosures and labs and hotels and gift shops and all the little monetizing pieces that Eduardo bullied Mark into letting him get away with. They even have the first of the population: tiny baby stegosaurus that Dustin insists on carrying around and nursing to the point that even he, their so-called reptile specialist, has to admit they’re getting a little on the chubby side for three month old herbivores.

Mark has somehow managed to charm a trio of their velociraptors.

I must have read this story at least once a day for the past week and I still can't get enough of it. As the author says, this is practically dinosaurs kidfic. How can you resist the call? Spoiler: YOU CAN'T! Go click on the link, read the story, and then come back here to tell me that drawing Dustin riding a triceratops is a bad idea and I should desist at once!

Also, these past few days my flist has been swamped in delightful fic memes of all shapes and forms, but I haven't seen a single one for fanart :( so I decided to tweak this one! :D?

The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write doodle AND give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, etc) or another time period (Ancient Rome, Regency England, etc). I will then explain what story from that fandom I would AU in that era doodle something quick based on your choice.

Ion, I've spent all of Monday marathoning Ouran Host Club (and then getting scarred on D:) What anime should I obess over next, my dear flist?

You guys! Today is a very special day! My lil' sister turned 21! ISN'T IT FREAKING AMAZING? She is the very best sister ever and also the coolest person I know. There are not enough nice words in the universe to truly do her justice okay? She is that amazing ♥

Anyway, silly present for the sister (that she received a couple of days ago because who cares about dates)! This year she got exclusive fanart. Doctor Who fanart. Featuring a kettle. Ummmm.

Keep Calm & Percolate )

Another reason that makes today a really special day is that [ profile] bookshop is hosting the Fluff Meme - Round Two! So much delicious fluff, you don't even know ♥ Also, I drew a little doodle for [ profile] angelgazing's fill Eames is the Ice Cream Man (yes, I did name the pic file icecrEames.jpg. What?) and you should all go and over there and dive into the fun! Go write! Go draw! Go read! Just go!
aredblush: (mika - colours)
Turns out that [ profile] angelgazing is a pushy enabler who not only wrote MORE CARE BEARS FIC (omg you guys! It is the most awesome! Go read it now! Or go read it again! Whichever!) but also insists that I share the lousy doodles I drew for her with the internet. Please know that these are all her fault and she is to blame for everything.

silly silly doodles )

Today was supposed to be awesome and amazing and all things shiny because I was asked to paint on a wall (I love drawing on big surfaces) but my excitement for this task was ruined in the span of 15 minutes thanks to hate rant delivered by my bff's mum after she asked me what was that I posted on my facebook status and I explained about today being NCOD. I'm not going to repeat what she said because just thinking about it makes the bile rise again in my throat and it was hard to swallow it down the first time around. Point is, she managed to turn me into a sad and angry little thing; when I am a sad-and-angry-little-thing I tend to think the world is doomed and people are horrible and I forget that not everybody is so hateful and offensive and rude. Luckily, mum and L let me get it out of my system and then we all flailed angrily together about people's blindness and their close-mindedness. This FCKH8 video (NSFW! Heavy use of the F word!) also made me feel slightly better. Speaking of f*** hate, you should also go and check out this

The "I admire you because..." Meme

because [ profile] ohohstarryeyed is right, everyone could do with being told why they're awesome, and I could do with seeing people love on other people and proove that the world is not doomed and people are beautiful, loving, caring beings. Click on the link, leave your name, spread the love.

And just because I need to get my brain to just shut down for a while, a meme stolen from [ profile] angelgazing and modified to suit me better

Give me a character/pairing and a word, and I will writedraw you one sentence of ficquick doodle.
