Every now and then I am seized by the desire to make a personal bookplate. I can never really decide on a good design, though. Anyway, this recent time I was considering Hestia or a Muse sitting on a greek stool while reading… and it devolved into a Muse misusing a greek stool while reading, haha. You know how it goes, you start off reading sitting normally, then you’re sideways… upside down… barely on the chair at all…
I’m used to being mistaken for a college student, but having someone think 9 cents is gonna make a dent in my student loans is a new one.
aww, you will find someone, I believe in you!!
ahahaha awwww cocoooo ;o;
My actual reaction to That Moment in Welcome To Night Vale episode 51. ashfjds jeezum crow that is just the cutest set of dialogue on the planet…
(I was cooking carrots and broccoli and rice to go with some left over shaved beef with onions, it was gooood)
So I watched All About That Bass for the first time tonight and suddenly I was drawing Cherry. Seems like her kinda song, if a little sugary for her style.
My expressions while watching Dr Who tonight. I really did do the cartoony thoughtful hand on chin pose, I love it when a show makes me do that.
Really excited for this new series, I love Capaldi’s Doctor so far!
I was thinking about my old hetalia ocs and needed stress relief after working some night shifts, so… I dusted these guys off. And like the last time I drew a clump of ocs, I chose outfits for them from style.com’s Spring 2014 ready-to-wear runway slideshows. Back in the ~golden days~ of the tegaki e aph rp tags, when I wasn’t running around as Mama Greece I was running around as these guys. Left to right:
Hesse, human name Hildegarde, a German state. She’s quiet and rather deadpan and will only become excitable when the topic turns to books. She’s wearing an outfit from Jasmin Shokrian and would like to get back to her reading, please.
Maine, human name Jacques Michaud, American state. Chubbu and doofy and likes things simple. The chub is hiding some solid muscle, he’s a hard worker and likes to be outdoors. (he has a farmer’s tan here because of course he would) He’s uncomfortably wearing Hermès.
Venice, human name Oriana, is opinionated and self-centered but knows how to be a graceful sophisticated lady as well. I nearly always put her in red, but the Queen of the Adriatic can pull off a lovely blue dress from Catherine Malandrino as well!
Yes I had a tendency towards state-tans rather than nations. Yes I had the bad luck of picking places that would end up with canon representation. (Back then I didn’t realize that Feliciano explicitly represented Venice… and I don’t think the character of Hesse as a brother of Germany existed then either) Yeah, there’s a reason Maine lasted longer in my sketches even after the aph-oc rp tag on tegaki (as I knew it) crumbled…
