My favorite short from that movie.
Hi. I’m the filthy severed head of a doll. My hair is like cobwebs and my eyes were poked out before you were born. I will be visiting with you later tonight in your dreams. We’ll have fun then: just you wait and see!
Just a heads up.

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
imagine a dragon trying to blow up balloons but they keep setting on fire
it’s really sad
also imagine it trying to blow out the candles on its birthday cake
their birthdays must be awful
i’m waking up
to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
im breathing in the chemicals
Always always always relevant.
And if I don’t know, I probably know somebody that does!
first legit confession in a long time
People are so fucking stupid if they feel intimidated by a series, like Detective Comics, if it’s over 800 issues. I had NO problem starting at Detective Comics #817 back in 2006, which was my first single issue ever.
I was a die-hard BTAS fan at the time that I started reading DC Comics (still am, obviously) so I knew everyone in the issue already - Poison Ivy and Tim Drake as Robin (even wearing the red Robin suit from the animated series).
I didn’t even need a fucking blurb to explain to me what was going on at the beginning of the book, not to mention restarting the fucking universe.
I used my fucking brain to figure things out.
Awesome but a blurb is very nice to have help keep things straight.
This. This all day. Not sure why that one dude is so surly but the sentiment remains. READ COMICS.
Four Redesigns I did for She Has No Head’s new article by Kelly Thompson
The theme were characters that need a redesign.
Okay, since seemingly people were complaining because they failed to look into the context for these designs, im providing my notes.
With Harley I wanted to take the approach of the super wacky and cute version of her that Bruce Timm created, but put her in the context of the more hardcore dangerous team. Given who she runs around with, and where she fits, it sort of makes sense that she would combat-ready up a bit, but I didn’t want to lose the charm of her character
When I think of Raven, “dark elegance” is what always comes to mind. With all her costumes, the “dark” is always apparent, but I felt there’s been a lack of “elegance” of late, and that’s what I sought to bring back. I also tried to incorporate as many design elements I could from an actual Raven. The tail inspired the shape of the cape, the wings inspired her shoulders, and I added actual feathers onto her, etc. I’ve never thought of her as a mobile character, so I chose to go a more “fashion route.”
This was a tricky one. I wanted to balance equal parts Alien-Princess and Warrior. To an extent, I approached her how I would Wonder Woman – I didn’t want to hide the royal side, but I needed the costume to serve her very physical activities. Because of her power set, and her alien nature, I didn’t adhere to human practicality and the costume restrictions that might entail (bare feet), but I didn’t want her to look outlandish either.
In keeping with the idea that she is currently lacking confidence from her diminished/unpredictable powers and just the overall turmoil she caused, I wanted to keep the black costume and general personality change she has now. I chose to make the full body covered, because as a character who prides herself on her confidence, and the confidence brought forth from her body, I’d imagine with this weakened state of mental resolve she wouldn’t be too keen on showing it off. But that doesn’t mean Emma won’t still be fashionable.
