Happy Friday! (Happy Saturday to those of you in Australia. Which is most of the people who like this page.)
More concept sketches, this time it’s me as a teen. The top two are me wearing clothes that I’d actually choose for myself. The grumpy me is wearing school uniform. (The only time I’d wear a dress/skirt were when people made me, so that was mostly just at school.)

Throwback Thursday! Another of last year’s pumpkins because it’s cute. :3
It’s based on this picture: http://natazilla.tumblr.com/image/5680916215

And by ‘based on’ I mean, ‘replicated in pumpkin form’.

Hello!

Here’s a write up I’ve been wanting to do since SPX, I’ve just been waiting for a certain someone to upload this comic so I could point you all to it. That someone is Nic McIvor, and the comic is Pure-O, a collection of true experiences and information, mostly about Nic’s OCD.

You can read it all here: http://nicholasmcivor.com/

Now, I hear you asking, “Oh yeah, so he’s an artist who says he has OCD. Does he *really* have it, or does he just mean that he likes to get his art just right?” And I hear you asking that because so many people IRL have asked me this when I’ve mentioned this comic and how much I liked it. I guess society just throws that phrase around, with people casually claiming to have OCD for whatever reason, the way people say “literally” instead of “figuratively”. (I know that literally has won, don’t rub it in with notes to me.)

Well, I can tell you that Nic DOES really have OCD. For real and pretty full on. Nic is a friend of mine in the real world, and this is something that he’s always been honest about and doesn’t seem embarrassed about. It’s just part of who he is. That kind of honesty and acceptance of self comes through in his work and makes this a really great little comic. (There are only twelve pages so far, but I’ve heard there will be more.)

It’s a really great look into OCD, and it showed me stuff that I didn’t know and/or hadn’t considered before. Some things are explained like the page below, other things are shown through snapshots on Nic’s life; moments that were created by OCD. If you know anyone with OCD, definitely read this comic. And if you don’t, read it anyway because it’s short and cute.image

As you can see from the pages I’ve put up, the art is also top notch. LOOK HOW CUTE IT IS. Seriously, I am in love with the look of the comic and design of the characters. So cute! I’m a huge sucker for this kind of simplicity of design. As an artist, I know that you gotta work hard and know what you’re doing in order to pull this off without your art looking naive. A lot of non-artists think that simple art is easy. Sure, simplicity is easy, but GOOD simplicity is hard.

^ That’s my favourite page.

Well, that about wraps it up. Go check out Nic’s art and read Pure-O here: http://nicholasmcivor.com/

There’s nothing really on his tumblr yet, but go follow him there anyway for when he uploads in the future: http://nicksmcivor.tumblr.com/

First pumpkin of the season and I’m keeping up my Halloween tradition of a Neil Gaiman themed pumpkin. ^_^ 

This is probably my favourite panel of the whole series. <3

missespeon:

honestly this isnt even a fair comparison because the one on the right is one of the more gentle meg jokes

This is why I LOVE Bob’s Burgers and HATE Family Guy.

Bob’s Burgers approaches everything in a loving and inclusive way and that’s where they find their humour. And they let their female characters be wild and funny and free instead of standing in a corner rolling their eyes and nagging. 

Family Guy just shits on everything.
