he holds the secrets to the fountain of youth i am certain of it

Maybe he’s a vampire that was bitten at a young age

What… In Nanny McPhee he was 15 years old!

I thought for sure I was getting trolled with that last comment, BUT NO.  He was THIRTEEN for Love Actually!

Frogs fall out of my mouth when I talk. Toads, too.

It used to be a problem.

There was an incident when I was young and cross and fed up parental expectations. My sister, who is the Good One, has gold fall from her lips, and…

Anonymous said: Do you ever think you'll stop drawing fanart? No offense it just seems like the kind of thing you're supposed to grow out of. I'm just curious what your plans/goals are since it isn't exactly an art form that people take seriously.




Ah, fanart. Also known as the art that girls make.

Sad, immature girls no one takes seriously. Girls who are taught that it’s shameful to be excited or passionate about anything, that it’s pathetic to gush about what attracts them, that it’s wrong to be a geek, that they should feel embarrassed about having a crush, that they’re not allowed to gaze or stare or wish or desire. Girls who need to grow out of it.

That’s the art you mean, right?

Because in my experience, when grown men make it, nobody calls it fanart. They just call it art. And everyone takes it very seriously.

It’s interesting though — the culture of shame surrounding adult women and fandom. Even within fandom it’s heavily internalized: unsurprisingly, mind, given that fandom is largely comprised by young girls and, unfortunately, our culture runs on ensuring young girls internalize *all* messages no matter how toxic. But here’s another way of thinking about it.

Sports is a fandom. It requires zealous attention to “seasons,” knowledge of details considered obscure to those not involved in that fandom, unbelievable amounts of merchandise, and even “fanfic” in the form of fantasy teams. But this is a masculine-coded fandom. And as such, it’s encouraged - built into our economy! Have you *seen* Dish network’s “ultimate fan” advertisements, which literally base selling of a product around the normalization of all consuming (male) obsession? Or the very existence of sports bars, built around the link between fans and community enjoyment and analysis. Sport fandom is so ingrained in our culture that major events are treated like holidays (my gym closes for the Super Bowl) — and can you imagine being laughed at for admitting you didn’t know the difference between Supernatural and The X Files the way you might if you admit you don’t know the rules of football vs baseball, or basketball?

"Fandom" is not childish but we live in a culture that commodified women’s time in such away that their hobbies have to be "frivolous," because "mature" women’s interests are supposed to be caretaking, via marriage, children, and the lives of those within an imagined (generally nuclear) family unit: things that allow others to continue their own special interests, while leaving women without a space of their own.

So think about what you’re actually saying when you call someone “too old” for fandom. Because you’re suggesting they are “too old” for a consuming hobby, and I challenge you to answer — what do you think they should be doing instead?

I would like every anon and non-anon who have sent me messages along the the lines of 'you're too old for tumblr, it's creepy' and 'when will you grow out of fandom?' to read this and remember it when they are in their 40s.

Hopefully I can finish this today! Here are two more updates—hair, neck, and shirt collar.


More Sam. His hand is a microcosm of complicated lighting that I knew would be super difficult, so I got it out of the way so I can stop worrying about it.

This vid has popped up on Tumblr here and there, but none of us who worked on it have ever posted it, so why not?

If you’ve seen it, you know what you’re in for. If you don’t, no spoilers are given. It’s a romance, people. An epic romance

This may be the greatest thing in the history of ever.  Years now, after seeing it at its debut, all the things I ruptured laughing have finally healed, so BE WARNED. :D

Co-signed. Sometimes I make innocent fangirls just coming to Chicago for hockey watch this. It’s like a checklist: here’s where Sharpy filmed that hot dog commercial. Here’s where Kaner lives. Wave to Kaner! Here’s really great cupcakes. Have you seen Catbaby? What? No? Let us go back to your hotel/my place and rectify this immediately. 

(…when you put it like that, it sounds almost wrong.)

oh my god this vid. if you aren’t spoiled, don’t read any more, just press play. watch.
