I couldn’t care less about Thor and anything having to do with him and it bothers me that Thor-mania has seeped into my other comics. Also, I don’t like Deadpool.
I hate Steve/Tony and what it’s done to Marvel fic fandom, and I judge anyone for shipping it. Oh, and if you like Tony Stark I just don’t understand you on a very basic level.
An unpopular Tumblr fandom opinion (but not unpopular in the rest of fandom): Civil War is terrible. IT’S TERRIBLE. Nothing is redeemable about it. ALL OF YOU PEOPLE WHO THINK IT’S GOOD MAKE NO SENSE TO ME.
An unpopular fandom-in-general opinion: I don’t really care for Bruce Wayne or ship him with anyone.
People complain about Deadpool being over-exposed, but for me that’s Bruce!Batman. How many titles does he need, really?
And Tim/Kon is an incredibly boring ship.
And Neil Gaiman is a problematic writer.
Shipping Bruce/Dick, Dick/Tim, Damian/Dick, Damian/Steph, etc etc, is incestuous and extremely icky. They’re family. It’s not right.
Also, All Star Superman is a fucking terrible comic.
I can’t stand anything by Frank Miller. Even comics or movies of his that I could enjoy a little are tainted in my mind with his constant use of cheesy dialogue and misogyny. Even if the dialogue is to parody what has been done before he does it so much that his own dialogue is a parody of himself.

Surprisingly that I failed Art huh? I didn’t so much fail as drop out of Fine Art School because I was sick of their B.S. I was constantly being told that comic drawing wasn’t art, that technical skill didn’t make an artist great and that I’d never be able to produce art full-time as a job. Look at me now. :D
Well, flattery is defined as "excessive or insincere praise" and I don't think what I said falls under either! If anything, I sold you short by not talking about you longer.
I'm not quite sure how I found your blog -- although I think it may actually have been because of a sketch card! -- but I'm very glad that I did. The things you do are fantastic and I hope you get super-world-fame.
You're definitely the artist I most enjoy following! (Hope none of the other ones see this, but it's true!)
I was not aware of that definition, you learn something new every day!
Thanks again, I’ve said this before but the support I get alone especially here on Tumblr keeps me going during my most stressful days where I wonder if I’ll achieve my dreams. Knowing people enjoy my work makes it all worth while and I hope to be able to keep doing that.
Hello! I really wish Marvel would come out with a good line of Womens/Girls t-shirts. Every shirt seems to be “I only date Superheros” or “Girls night out”. I’d love to see some of the mens designs on clothing designed for a womans body. I could get a small mens shirt but the fit isn’t the same….
Do you want to know how many of my comic book shirts are mens?
All of them.
I’m mostly irritated how I have to find a company that’s licensed DC or Marvel logos to get my women’s fitted shirts. I can’t buy a shirt in my size through Previews and they don’t even stock any ‘womens’ fitted tees at all. (And don’t tell me to buy a guy’s medium, it looks horrid and I should be able to buy a god damn shirt in my size.)
That reminds me, I want DC and Marvel to release some logo jewellery.
They are hassled for this kind of thing all the time. People are always asking them to donate art, or to do art for free. I get asked a lot too, but with artists, it’s ten times worse. And they WANT to be nice, they want to be helpful, but art is how they make their living. Giving away art is like giving away money to them. Taking the time to draw something for free ALSO means they aren’t drawing something that they would get paid for.
In short, they are asked to do their jobs a lot for free. Even for good causes, I imagine that would get a little old.
So I was prepared to be rejected a lot. I wouldn’t blame anyone, I totally understand.
I’m doing the whole starving artist thing right now and when it comes to donating art I always feel like it isn’t enough. I cannot donate money so I’m usually more than happy to donate some of my work but even then it needs to sell to be of any benefit to the cause I’m donating it to.
Speaking of, bidding on my March of Dimes donation sketch cards have closed. Sadly the Aquaman card didn’t sell but the other four did bringing my final total to $61.95. Thanks to everyone who bid and supported this great cause.
