My two (two!) pieces for the "Magical Girl Heroines: Sailor Moon and Sailor Senshi"gallery show, happening THIS SATURDAY (that’s tomorrow!) at Q-Pop in lovely downtown Los Angeles! The art i’ve already seen for this show looks AMAZING and i’m super pumped to be part of it along with many talented pals and talented potential-future-pals.
Thought I’d have done something bigger for the 500th daily, but whutevs. I don’t usually take requests though I got lot of people saying they wanted a spyro one, and being a big fan of the series myself, why the heck not
I’m still making the pokemon by the way. Just at a bit of a standstill with trying to re-imagine Chansey, I’ll get around it soon
This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.
A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!
Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.
All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.
Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!
Try to talk with the staff in-depth about some of their favorites, too. When I worked at the greyhound rescue, most of the funniest, sweetest dogs were anxious around crowds and strangers, and didn’t “show” well to prospective adopters.
Everyone that wants to adopt a cat or any other pet needs to see this. I’ve worked on a cat shelter before and we had a lot of adult cats, many with missing limbs, eyes or even neurological problems as well, and let me tell you those were the sweetest cats anyone could ever meet and I felt so sad whenever someone came and just glared at them because they were “broken”.
These animals are not broken, they are as lovable as any other animal.
Lensis a first person exploration/puzzle game that takes place on a mysterious island, where two parallel worlds are separated by a thin glass of reality. While playing the game you are able to pierce through this glass and look into this other parallel world using an ancient artifact called ‘The Lens’. Not only can you use it to see the other parallel world, but you can also manipulate objects in both worlds, pushing and pulling objects between the two worlds to help solve puzzles and learn more about this mysterious island.
Lens uses the parallel worlds idea to great effect, Bioshock Infinite did explore the concept of parallel worlds, but any real gameplay functions based on it were rudimentary at best. Lens does a much better job, it’s a great adventure with well thought out puzzles that make excellent use of it’s parallel worlds-based game mechanic.
