Thank you very much! That’s heartening to hear. But actually, about my book plans, I’ve unfortunately run into a setback: there are some letters that simply don’t have a corresponding Goetic demon, like J.
So I have two options: simply proceed to illustrate the entire batch (seventy two demons, hrrrgh!) or some reasonable abridgment thereof, and release it as cute little mini/starter grimoire, or look to other cultures’s demons for the missing letters.
Neither option is particularly attractive! For the first, I don’t want to draw that many demons! 26 sounded doable. Fifty? Seventy? Eek. For the second… well, western mysticism is all very well to futz around with, but I’m hesitant about issues of appropriation when it comes to other cultures.
Anyway, I’m gonna just kind of keep on with the demons that sound fun, and see where it takes me.
Could you maybe sub in the characteristics of the demons for the missing letters? J could be “Justice” for example.
It’s a cool project no matter what you decide!
For young adult book illustration week: Brian Jacques’s Redwall series. Not sure if this counts as young adult or if they’re just straight up children’s books, but whatever.
*unholy squeaking noises*
Let’s play a game.

#YOU ARE NOT HELPING YOUR CAUSE #ALSO FUCK YOU CATCALLERS #WHAT THE HELL APRIL #When it’s dark you can see the stars #WHY AM I STILL AWAKE #How to talk to kids #look at the colors! #Because she pisses off fools #I’ve never even heard of Pink Floyd! #Stop that
Goodness I do a lot of capslock smashing
more than half of all girls report dissatisfaction with their body by age nine, one study shows.
'i wanted to be a dragon', reports kiara miller, age eight and a half. 'this sucks.'
her friends concur.
there’s literally no way to redeem these two
but I figured that some of the people who were responsible for them might as well get paid a visit
Even without knowing ANYTHING about “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared,” this is TERRIFYING.
I’m sorry. These designs were just too fun.
I finally watched that video… a terrible mistake has been made…
Men want what they want.
So much of our culture caters to giving men what they want. A high school student invites model Kate Upton to attend his prom, and he’s congratulated for his audacity. A male fan at a Beyoncé concert reaches up to the stage to slap her ass because her ass is there, her ass is magnificent, and he wants to feel it. The science fiction fandom community is once again having a heated discussion, across the Internet, about the ongoing problem of sexual harassment at conventions — countless women are telling all manner of stories about how, without their consent, they are groped, ogled, lured into hotel rooms under false pretenses, physically lifted off the ground, and more.
But men want what they want. We should all lighten up.
It’s hard not to feel humorless as a woman and a feminist, to recognize misogyny in so many forms, some great and some small, and know you’re not imagining things. It’s hard to be told to lighten up because if you lighten up any more, you’re going to float the fuck away. The problem is not that one of these things is happening, it’s that they are all happening, concurrently and constantly.
These are just songs. They are just jokes. They are just movies. It’s just a hug. They’re just breasts. Smile, you’re beautiful. Can’t a man pay you a compliment? In truth, this is all a symptom of a much more virulent cultural sickness — one where women exist to satisfy the whims of men, one where a woman’s worth is consistently diminished or entirely ignored."
Sigur Ros covering Rains of Castamere. Oh. God. Gorgeous.
2nd favorite part of the latest episode… >:D
Changed my mind - THIS is my new favorite.
Michael Grab has mastered the art of stone balancing. He explains how he does it. “The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of “tripod” for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another. In the finer point balances, these clicks can be felt on a scale smaller than millimeters. Some point balances will give the illusion of weightlessness as the rocks look to be barely touching. Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.”
