Markers! I've been trying to learn how to use them.



First, a quick self-portrait I did to commemorate my 20th birthday! L-LOOKIN' GOOD .__.;; The lights in this room heat it up really quickly so I am usually in varying states of undress when working. Also I just prefer not wearing clothes to wearing clothes, screw clothes, I don't have time for that shit.

...

The hat I got to wear with my plague doctor mask/Anime North costume--it's like wearing a small black hole on your head! Good for keeping the sun out of your eyes, though.



Then I learned that it is VERY VERY IMPORTANT to use the right kind of paper with markers or else everything will go heart-breakingly wrong.



This I did on paper that was thick and soft and fibrous and it ruined two of my markers and turned out blotchy and horrible. Experienced XTREME!! frustration trying to make the sky not be all streaky (as you can see I did no succeed).

OH AND DID SOMEONE SAY "DIMENSION HOPPING DEMON LADIES"?? No? Oh well.



Clearly the best way to acquaint oneself with a new medium is with FIVE ZILLION LEAVES, yeah?

...

Outfit for Anime North (and whereever else I feel like going dressed as an anachronistic-magpie-nightmare) involves wings that will hopefully look and function rather like this (but more magpie-ish), so I've been making feathers and... making more feathers. SO MANY FEATHERS. I must keep telling myself it is worth it, haha.

Some of the iridescent secondary feathers:



aaand I need to get my ass back into gear and PAINT MORE FEATHERS. You guys it is not a very stimulating or fulfulling task. WINGS WILL BE AWESOME, WINGS WILL BE AWESOME, KEEP TELLING MYSELF THIS....

EDIT: OH ALSO, not that I haven't mentioned this before, but this is my tumblr, I post a lot of nonsense.

WHOA HEY LIVEJOURNAL. I've been doing some things. Pictures!

We've nearly completely redone my little art kitchen--new paint, new floor, new contraptions screwed into the walls. Here's what the wallpaper looked like before:



And here's what the walls look like now:



PRETTY CLASSY HUH. Stripes make everything cooler.

And I have a nice system now for storing all of my colourful paper--



It's becoming a very nice room. I have a lot of mixed feelings though, because on one hand it's like YAY A PRETTY ART ROOM I CAN GET LOTS OF WORK DONE but on the other hand it's like OH GOD I AM GOING TO BE STUCK HERE FOREVER I WILL NEVER MEET ANOTHER PERSON OR HAVE FRIENDS AGAIN SEND HELP IMMEDIATELY.

...

On a related note, I still can't decide if I want to go to Anime North this year. I'm not sure if I can expend the money/energy. I wish I could just...teleport there? No, I wish I had a hotel room to stay in like the good ol' days. It's a lot more fun when you can to and fro from a room and treat it like a mini vacation, haha.

Anyway what was I saying? Oh yeah I've done things. I'VE DONE MY HAIR. With indigo! It was the messiest thing ever, much worse than henna, and most of my belongings are stained with blue and green. Also stained with blue and green: most of my skin. It...it's washing off. Slowly.

Hair colour before and after:



As you can see, it's super effective!

Poorly lit phone photo before and after:



Please note that the indigo DYED MY EYEBROWS. This was not intentional, it just happened as the dye was rinsing out of my hair. Also: the rest of my body hair. ALSO THE REST OF MY BODY. Guys I don't recommend doing this if you have a social life in which temporarily looking like a fresh-water mermaid is unacceptable. The eyebrows are kind of nice though? I mean, they look twice as big now and I may have to apply the tweezers, but they match the hair? :'D

So, yes, I may now acquire some magic bells and leave home to fight the walking dead.

...

It occurs to me that I never posted these Doctor Who split pin people here, so



My mom made them the TARDIS. I tried to make a TARDIS but it was not square and my mom did not approve of the inaccuracy.

I recently got a bunch of Copic markers which were hella expensive but definitely worth it. The downside is that I'm allergic to them and can only use them with a surgical mask or dust mask on. Because life would be too easy otherwise.

...

The wind is howling so strongly that I fear for my safety. What happened, weather? Yesterday the grass was green and the windows were open, now we are covered in snow again. ):
