  3. The big swim is over! I don’t know what my exact time was but I think it was my best yet. Thank you SO, SO MUCH to everyone who took the time and resources to donate to the cause! #swimacrossamerica

    "I finally understood that great works don’t begin as great works. They begin as rough ideas. I realized that creation is a process. I thought if I can understand the first step I can learn the next step. I was fully aware that I had much to learn, but I was confident that I could learn it.

    Here’s a rough sketch of my own. This is the sketch that later became the cover for The Bad Beginning

    Oh my gosh, thank you so much Brett Helquist for doing amazingly inspirational finished work and yet making me feel so much better about my sketches.

    Hey, Tumblr friends! My good friend, Zac Lawhon, and I have been training with Swim Across America for the past 16 weeks to do a 1 mile swim in the Chesapeake Bay to raise money for cancer research. The big swim is TOMORROW but we’re still a fair bit short of our goals. I’m looking to raise another $125 and Zac needs another $299 BEFORE MIDNIGHT! If you wouldn’t mind taking a few minutes to donate on behalf of one or both of us, we would be eternally grateful! Cancer is one disease that has or will certainly effect you in some way. If we work together, however, I feel confident that we can find a cure in our lifetime.

    The Felix Felicis chapter is probably my favorite in the entire series.

    I still have a HUGE backlog of #hpaday entries I have yet to post but I wanted to make sure I got this one out today. Happy birthday, Hermione! 


  12. Here’s the thing: sometimes, you just want to read a good love story. Or at least, something with a little sex, a little passion, a few dramatic swoons. But a romance novel, per se? Nothing so gaudy or slapdash for you! You need real literature. Well, person who I’ve just made up (though I know you’re out there), here’s the answer: a selection of romantic books that will rev your motor (emotional or otherwise) but don’t fall into that taboo category of cheap paper and cheaper storylines. After the jump, 50 romantic novels for people who hate romance novels — a list that could be mightily expanded, if you care to offer your own choices in the comments.

  13. "I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’"

    Today, I’m going to show how to make a linocut-print art. I barely do this kind of thing but making a demo was one of an assignment for Visual Narrative program at School of Visual Art. I thought that sharing a linocut demo would be a good idea as an artist who runs a Rosaful Garden :)

    I used document photos of my the Woof card as an example. The woof card was one of custom orders for holiday season last year. I printed 50 pieces of Woof cards for my friend David, working at American Kennel Club as a graphic designer.

    Handy tutorial by my friend, Rosa!

    Aoi Honoo is Too Real

    Every update I’m like “I should just put a colour behind them, yeah, comics!” and then I draw a stupidly complex bg

    literally me right now

    Obviously I have to watch this show.
