The blog of the foolish mortal in the bowler hat. I tend to post art related things, some TF2, and beyond that fairly random stuff.
If you dislike tf2, hats, geekery, skeletons, slash, or feminist rage - you will probably dislike this blog.
Was visiting family all weekend so I ended up playing with my pens and inks on actual paper. And making sure my 2 year old nephew didn’t get acquainted with my supplies.
So here’s some more SadBones - I’m trying to get the hang of drawing him consistently. He’s a lot more stylized than I normally draw skulls which is a challenge. I also see how much expression I can do to him without actually changing his face.
A friend reminded me that I hadn’t shown or shared these pieces to anyone. These are a small part of a large project I was commissioned for and was working on forever and a day. These were supposed to look similar to old stock certificates from the turn of the century.
I’m actually really proud of how they came out in the end.
The fan art community is one of the most creative and active online. Taking pop culture stories and icons as its starting point, the fan community extends those characters into new adventures, unexpected relationships, bizarre remixes, and even as the source material for beautiful art. Limited only by the imagination of the artist, the fan art world is full of surprises and brilliance.
So PBS did a short documentary about fan art - briefly mentioning the slash fandom and the meme faces.
