todays a beautiful day for RUINING EVERYTHING
I’m going to be at Sakuracon this weekend, cosplaying Fight Club Leader Mako from Kill la Kill! I’m sure there will be more than one person cosplaying her, but if you find the one with the biggest, doofiest hat, it’s probably me.
I drew the Yata one and was like “I should draw more cute kid things” and then immediately delved into mostly sad feelings READ KCDS MOTHERFUCKERS it is really good, honestly good, it’s not just me being dumb, someone really needs to make one of those stupid “why you should read this” comic sans shit things.
In like, 10 years, people will look at KCDS as the thing they should’ve been reading at the time, I swear. It’s like 999 in monster of the week format!
Bonus Kereellis here because tumblr is working like a piece of shit.
Bonus: If you buy the official version, you get Carl Horn’s amazing translator notes!
Unbonus: Looks like Dark Horse has stopped translating it, leaving us stranded at Vol. 13…
It’s 1am so I’m sorry for the people who won’t see this. But if you want confidence and don’t know how to get it, a really good way is to be confident in other people. When you walk into Starbucks, think, “damn, that barista’s hair is da bomb!” Or when you go to school, think, “my teacher is rocking that skirt!” When you start seeing everyone as being beautiful, at some point you realize that you’re everyone too.
these were my favorite commissions i got to do.. i saved them to the very last so i could have lots of fun with them and THAT I DID!!! i love love love black jack and franken fran so the fact that i was commissioned for both of them drove me positively mad with how much potential it held! and of course it had to be a diptych!!!! in many ways these two are polar opposites but they are also very similar so i had a lot of fun thinking up all the little details!!!!!!
black jack has a darker composition bc even if he is very righteous, he comes from a dark past and has a tainted reputation. on the surface he is motivated largely by avarice and pursuit of wealth but it only masks a deep seated sense of justice; he will ask a large sum from the rich only to give to the poor, et cetera. the white carnations in the background signify the loss of his mother as carnations are the standard flower to give on mother’s day and white flowers are commonly used in funeral bouquets.
fran’s is very bright and cheery because she is at heart very pure. she brims with naiveté and goodwill, and is willing to extend her help to most who ask without much compensation if it cannot be afforded. the irony in this is that, as well intentioned as she is, her end results are oft horrific and not quite what the patient wanted. her flowers are pink roses, signifying her ardent love and devotion to her creator.
