That problem when you ship a thing and just wanna read fanfics, but the fandom is tiny and nOBODY ELSE SHIPS THE SAME THING, APPARENTLY.

There are various brands of evil in the world, but one of the worst has got to be shitty project partners who refuse to cooperate and drop the ball so frequently and so without shame and yet don’t get in any trouble for it.
In other words, these next five weeks are going to be a hellish repeat of the worst parts of my year last year.
Why do I keep getting grouped with this person for the important stuff. Anyone else would be a thousand times better than repeating the pain of breaking down sobbing at 6 in the morning in the empty art building because my goddamn partner can’t make the time to meet up any earlier than fuck-you-o’clock in the morning THE DAY THE ASSIGNMENT IS DUE.

A person just inexplicably started playing the trumpet somewhere in the hallway on my floor and I don’t know what to do about that.

I sat and waited
So many nights
And looked out there under
The pine hill;
But shadows made
The mountain dark,
And you, you didn’t find
The way.
"Synnøves Sang", Norwegian folk song, translated excerpt

Wait guys I sent that Halloween illustration to my dad and he says I should keep it for my portfolio, that I should make some more that are stylistically similar and start looking for freelance jobs.
My dad is an art teacher at Columbia College, he’s worked in advertising and various design companies and as a freelance artist himself
And I guess I’m just not used to thinking of the art I do for fun as being actually marketable? I keep thinking “yeah it’s pretty good! But it’s not good enough yet to try to do anything with. Keep working.”
Like
I KNOW I’m a good artist. I also know there are better artists out there! So it’s just weird to me to think that a person who’s been in the business, completely disregarding that he’s my dad, thinks it’s pro work.
That’s just really nice to hear I guess.
I’ll do my best to keep moving forward, but now I know that I don’t have to keep putting off getting my art out there! It’s good enough now to try anyway, and I can only improve!

As an apology for taking so long to get anything out for the Middleschool Detectives KRW comic, please take this illustration of the Agency enjoying Halloween together!! Can you guess why each of them is dressed the way they are?

There’s probably a problem when you’re going to skip a class to finish a project for that class, right?

My first class of the day (and, coincidentally, my Most Hated class) just got cancelled today and I am absolutely SHRIEKING WITH GLEE!! No horribly unprofessional, rude, and shame-happy teachers TODAY!

So today I was trying to finish a riveting sample for my jewelry making class (unfortunately was not able to finish in the amount of time the lab was open for, but neither did half my classmates so haha I don’t feel too bad)
and part of the process is you have to superglue two sheets of metal together to drill holes in the exact same spot to be riveted together properly, and then you have to separate the pieces by sticking it in the torch and burning the glue off. Normally the metal just gets kinda dingy and icky looking, so imagine my glee when I accidentally created a galaxy instead!!
