Here is a very old promo poster I did before the pilot was even complete!
I can not believe how much the show has grown and changed since this pilot; the show will look amazing, the people I am working with are amazing, wait up for the series you guys it’s gonna be something else!!!
Pssssssst Rebecca Sugar is one of my new heros! She cowrote/storyboarded a bunch of amazing Adventure Time episodes It Came From the Nightosphere, Jake the Dog, and I Remember You, just to name a few of my favorites. ((Also apparently shes the first woman to ever get her own show on Cartoon Network?? Which surprises me only because WOW its 2013. What the hell CN.))
The pilot for Steven Universe is amazing and adorable~ Please watch and support it~ I hope that this show ends up being really spectacularly successful! I cant even words for all the things that are wonderful about it~ <3
“The night I was cast, I went out and bought The Empire Strikes Back and Jaws. My goals were to get a voice as sinister as Darth Vader and the menacing physicality of the shark. It’s so easy to take these big beasts – these ferocious characters – and cook them at ten the whole time. But I wanted to have this circling, steady presence that would suddenly attack randomly. Peter allowed me to make a lot of adjustments. Being a Maori, in the scene where I’m beating up Thorin, I rocked back on my warg, raised my eyes up and did this look that in the Maori world is called ‘pukana’. You show the enemy the whites of your eyes. It just happened instinctively and at the end of the take I said, “Peter, I think I pukana-ed!” I didn’t think he’d use it, but sure enough, when I went down to the premiere with a bunch of Maori friends, there it was.”

My thesis project, Dom & Sub, a.k.a. why I’ve been such a bad tumblr-er/bad friend/etc. My artist statement:
Dom & Sub is a body of illustrative work in digital media that attempts to humanize practitioners of BDSM and offer a representation of kinky sex that not only refutes negative stereotypes but informs the audience that sadomasochistic play is done best between happy, healthy, and consenting adults. I portrayed the couple in the work not only engaging in S&M play but also building a “scene” together and nurturing one another after the play has concluded; these are moments often left unconsidered or completely ignored in visual representations of S&M. I believe it’s important to see how kinky scenes are crafted with care, commitment to safety and enthusiastic consent in order to limit those times when sadomasochistic play is used to abuse or dehumanize other human beings. It is my hope that my audience will learn from the illustrations that sadomasochistic play is not always dark or scary, and that fellow ‘kinksters’ can enjoy tender representations of S&M that do not ridicule or pathologize them. I’ve designed the work to engage sadomasochistic imagery, material and theory with an ethical conscience.

raakelh replied: I’d watch that livestream - at least if I have a computer that can run it.

I have a question for all of my chubby followers:
Do you find it difficult to break the association between exercise and weight loss? (i.e. can you exercise without obsessing over your weight at the same time?)
If so, how do you avoid/how have you broken out of those ideals?
A lot of us have…
Dieting (especially cutting calories) while you work out is really hard on your body. You need the extra energy to burn.
My advice would be… dont think of it as something you have to do to stay healthy. That makes you want to know your weight, to put a number on it, just as a means to seek confirmation that youre doing good.
Instead focus on how you feel. Walk because you feel good about it. Run because you like the burn in your legs. Lift because it makes you feel strong, Hike because it feels good to be outdoors. Whatever suits you. Think of your aching muscles as a badge of pride.
Don’t consider our mixed up notions of health and cosmetics in our culture.
Exercise because it reminds you your body is powerful.
How much of your bod likes to be muscle vs fat vs whatever doesnt matter. Exercise because it keeps your body functioning at its best, because it makes you feel good.
Almost Naked Animals does not deserve to be shown on Cartoon Planet for a plethora of reasons.
1 being that it’s still being shown regularly on the same channel. 2. It’s a really recent fucking show. 3. Oh my god it suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks~! Like it and Johnny Test are like in competition as to…
Literally the only reason Shows like Almost Naked Animals and Johnny test get renewed season after season is because they are INCREDIBLY CHEAP to make…… I tried to find actual budget numbers but I failed. I wonder if thats the kinda thing they keep under wraps…. Budgets. Im really curious about exact numbers….. I’ll research better later.
