This was a dollar very well spent at Smudge Expo
yes it was! very fun.
Perhaps it was for the best that they lost the space tiger after all.
Things that are especially awesome about this page-
-Idalius (he’s pretty cool)
-Benedict and Edmund’s WHAT faces
-SPACE TIGER KISSES
the thing shouldn’t even exist
The dudes at The Emerald city comic con let me do the cover for the program book this year. So I drew the convention center escalators full of characters from the creators that are gonna be at the show.
They’re all or mostly all creator owned (with the exception of the Bubble gum crisis Priss)
This was lots of fun to draw, I’ll post a guide to who everyone is later.
Fire magic practice. Benedict needs special tutoring.
Benedict—not really good at things that don’t involve ‘punching’ or ‘kicking’.
Edmund—not really good at things like ‘teaching without being an ass’
Ocicatsy—good at sketching all of this out! 8) geeze you totally nailed that smug bastard
Anonymous asked: When is the comic coming out, now that you're teasing us with a cover? X3
Oh hay what’s this on our website—oH OH
OH YES MY PRETTIES IT’S REAL
(along with numerous other zines and minis for your reading pleasure!)
a couple months ago, I got to have dinner with ocicatsy and wensleydale the night before a job interview, and I got a copy of the comic which I put in my purse and accidentally took with me to my interview the next morning, and then I had to try very hard to not pull out comics of boys kissing in space when I gave the interviewer some paperwork.
I signed the contract for that job this morning, so I guess sparkles and cupcakes are good luck and everyone should go buy comics to take with to job interviews.
this totally called for sparkle text! and probably a blingee or two, but OMG YAY! 8D 8D 8D
Each of the items in these photos is a beautifully sculpted cake. Go ahead and take a long look at each of them, we’ll wait. These awesome edible works of art were created by BethAnn Goldberg, a Stanford alumni with a masters degree in engineering, a former NASA engineer and now owner of Studio Cake, a custom-order bakery in Menlo Park, CA.
BethAnn prides herself on being able to create any sort of cake that her customers can dream up. The incredible stacked sandwich cake pictured at the top of this post is a four-tiered column of cake with sculpted sandwich fixings around the perimeter. It took BethAnn nearly a week to make it, but the results appear to have been well worth all the time and effort. For Goldberg, making a custom cake is a simply another form of problem solving:
"Engineering school set me up for being an amazing problem solver. Whether it is the challenge of owning a small business and weathering an economic downturn or making supports for a 3-foot tall cake, it all comes down to problem solving and planning to make the best outcome possible."

“Although mostly forgotten nowadays, Neon was a short-lived and, in my opinion, perhaps the best UK film magazine there has ever been. Kind of the sister magazine to Select, it had the off-kilter approach of Smash Hits at its’ peak (leading to slightly odd features which created genuine insight, such as John Waters writing about his top ten religious movies and random movie makers asked about their favourite Chevy Chase film), combined with a genuine love of cinema that prevented it having the ‘everything is ironic’ tone of many magazines from the time.
Neither as obsessed with the new and mainstream as Empire or precious about cinema as Sight and Sound, it comfortably understood that you can enjoy both highbrow and lowbrow cinema, and focussed on unearthing and talking about interesting films. Anyway, since I came home to find that my mum had put all my magazines in date order, and I realised that I still had every issue (albeit some torn up to make collages in my pre-photoshop days), I thought I’d share the best bits on this blog. Enjoy.” —Neon Magazine Scans ‘97-‘99
