I thought it might make sense to do this? This list contains fanart dating back to early 2006, so some of it is very old and terrible. Newest stuff at the top of each section.

Note: now that I've mostly moved to tumblr, newer pieces will be linked there directly. However, I'd like to maintain this list, at least until such a time when the AO3 (hopefully) introduces direct uploading for fanart!

Um. Sooo. I seem to have fallen down a Garak/Bashir hole? I guess this is what I get for all the conversations with my roommate about how I don’t seem to have a taste for dark, complex, angsty stories these days. (SPN is the fandom of her heart, so naturally we differ a bit.) At least, not in fic. (Which, to be fair, I haven’t been reading a whole lot of for awhile in any case. I mostly look at a lot of fanart, and I listen to a lot of pro fiction audiobooks.)

I seriously have no idea where this sudden, intense fannish engagement is coming from. I’ve been contentedly making my way through DS9 for the better part of a year, finally, and while I love pretty much the whole cast (well, I have to admit, I still don’t care much for Worf, or O’Brien about two thirds of the time, but everyone else) and have a pile of pairings I enjoy thinking about … I don’t know. Maybe it’s the weather? Or the fact that I’m about halfway through season 6, and maybe the way that Garak and Bashir haven’t really interacted in awhile in canon has slowly been getting to me? Or it’s the stress I’ve been under lately? Although let’s be honest, that hasn’t exactly been anything new. IDEK.

But hey, yeah. Totally taking recs (thanks again, [personal profile] epershand) … for fic, and for active challenges? (Big Bangs and Reverse Bangs, I guess?) I mean, I should finish the show before I try and participate in anything, or read post-show fic (yeah, I’m saving “Letters from the Northern Continent”), but it’s kind of exciting to be feeling this kind of motivation to really get elbow-deep in a fandom again. (And while the dynamic between Garak and Bashir is particularly working for me right now, Kira is probably my favorite character, and there are a plethora of pairings and of course, all the team/found family feelings that I would be interested in exploring …!)

I also very much want all the Jadzia Dax/Lenara Kahn canon divergent AUs, naturally. (Both for the chemistry and the exploration of Trill culture/psychology.)

In other news, I finally emailed some staffing agencies and was immediately landed with a short-term temp assignment and encouraging prospects for more, so financial crisis more or less averted, at least for now. I mean, I’m being underpaid, but I’m being paid.

Also, if you're Boston-adjacent, you should come get your indie comics on in Porter Square this weekend!

So I don't know who's around anymore, but ... anyone out there have a Claire Temple/Misty Knight art prompt for me? ;) I love them both so much. (Daredevil mostly hasn't interested me, but I'm thinking about giving it a try, if only for more Claire? Although I have a variety of qualms.) My inspiration's feeling a little tapped out at the moment, though.

It's been kind of a rough week. My unemployment ran out unexpectedly early (it's a long story, ugh), so I suddenly have no income of any kind, and I'm scrambling around trying to fix that on a much shorter timeline than anticipated. Also, my health insurance decided to blow up in my face yesterday (just stupid bureaucratic mistakes on their end), so I had to waste the whole day trying to fix it. And my back's been killing me for a few days for no apparent reason, so really, I'm about done. /whining

October's a busy month, and apart from the financial stress, it's mostly good stuff: comics (my favorite local conventions, lots of friends and colleagues I've missed, and a new ongoing sci-fi project), a really rad Halloween costume concept and a party at my house to wear it to, even a musical theater date ... although I'm waffling about that, because she's offering to pay for my ticket since I suddenly can't afford to and I am just not sure about that). Still, I'd kind of just like to curl up under a blanket with tea and a few mystery novels for at least a week. Or snuggle my godbaby, who I can't afford to go visit right now.

But hey, I'm having my usual way too much fun haunting the Yuletide sign-up summary and letters posts. I'm so excited to write this year. :D The requests for most of my offered fandoms are nicely balanced; I have no idea what I'm going to get, and I can't wait to find out.

Also, a friend has me babysitting her cat's new litter of kittens a couple times a week, so that does make just about anything at least a little better!

I’ve been thinking about posting here again (for things other than exchange letters) a whole bunch lately, especially with rumors of Tumblr’s increasing instability as a platform, and my lack of motivation to check out this Imzy thing. Oh, I’m sure if that’s where the next great migration lands, I’ll wind up following. But in the meantime, I miss this space, the sense of having a stable ’home’ for my fannish/private self online. I doubt I’ll ever post more than sporadically, since a lot of my internet/social media time is taken up by my more public persona, but even so.

Anyway, speaking of exchanges, sign-ups are open for [community profile] femslashex, and you should totally get in on it. It’s become my favorite annual fannish event, for fairly obvious reasons ... all femslash, massively multifandom, and includes fanart. I really like this trend in fanwork exchanges, even though there are a fairly small number of fanart pieces every year; I’m not sure if it’s the problem with outreach to fanartists (this is definitely an issue, and one I’m at a loss with), the number of people only requesting fanfic, or both. (Request fanart, people. Please? I mean, I get wanting a story, but we make nice things toooo, and we want to make them for you!)

Also, possibly because I’ve become a heavy Goodreads user in the past year (and am thus much more conscious of what I’ve read when), I find myself wanting so many small SFF book fandoms lately. So I made a fairly tl;dr post over on my tumblr with some recs for books you should read and sign up for in exchanges! And now I’m going to crosspost it here.

I'm not dead or anything. Life just ... intensified for awhile, financial woes got even worse, and as a result I haven't felt like communicating much. Twitter has been a bit of a struggle, even. This may all be changing soon, however, as I'm relocating back east for a relatively fancy new job in the next month or so. Hopefully the blizzards will have stopped by then!

Incidentally, if there's anyone I haven't asked yet: if you happen to know anyone in the Boston area who is looking for a roommate (in a cat-friendly place), drop me a line?

Also, I'm going to Muskrat Jamboree (for real this time), so I'll see some of you there! :)

Ooh, I have had a week. It's been long and tiring and mostly dark and rainy to boot, and I've been singularly unproductive in spite of just having taken on some new (creative) professional responsibilities. This is about as grateful as I've been for Friday in awhile, especially since the [community profile] femslashex archive opens today at 8pm EST! There are currently 179 new pieces of f/f fanfic & fanart all ready to go; I'm so excited! (My own contribution will be here, though naturally I'll do a post here as well when I may.)

I'd say things have slowed down a bit, but that's not true so much as that I've been working more on deadlines than at my own pace. Here's a small roundup of exceptions and the like ...

Revisiting Rachel Summers. )

Oh, speaking of X-Men comics, I've also been listening avidly to Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, which does what it says on the tin in an entertaining, clever and deeply nerdy way. Highly recommended.

Meanwhile, on a more contemporary note: A tiny Braeden tribute. )

Last but very definitely not least, my contributions to the little [ profile] fanartremixexchange! Which deserved to be bigger, so I really hope the idea catches on! And for extra fun, I was matched with ataratah. ;) )

Huh, I've been doing a lot of color work lately; I suppose that's good practice? I'm never fully satisfied with any of it (except sometimes the flats), though; I might make an effort to go back to more of my b&w inks for the next little while. Coming up: [ profile] tw_fallharvest, [ profile] teenwolf_bb, [ profile] allydiareversebang, and [ profile] teenwolffemslashexchange. Um. Oops?

So the other day I saw this post fancasting Rihanna as Crowley and Lupita Nyong'o as Aziraphale on my tumblr dash, and had to try and give it a shot. Could've done a better job with the shading, but it was super fun to do nonetheless! I should make a point of drawing more fancasts in the future.

Summer's ending, and with it, I'm supposed to be doing less fanart, but ... that doesn't really seem to be happening, does it? I'm currently signed up for [ profile] fanartremixexchange, [community profile] femslashex, and [ profile] tw_fallharvest. All my assignments are super exciting! And of course, here I am producing completely random things.

Also, speaking of fanart, Teen Wolf, and Sailor Moon, I'm meant to be reccing the latter on [community profile] fanart_recs this month (and I'm behind! I need to get another post up, stat). Here's a roundup of my Teen Wolf recs from last month! )

It occurs to me that I know nothing about any incoming new shows this fall. Anything you guys are excited about?
reflectedeve: Pearl from Steven Universe, in a tux and top hat (I see you - oh hi there)
So I almost didn't watch the current season of Teen Wolf (which might have been a wise choice) because I was so sad and frustrated about Allison Argent's death. She was my favorite character, and I was not at all happy with how she was handled in 3B; even given that Crystal Reed wanted to leave the show, she was one of the main characters and deserved a much better closing arc. So as the new season was approaching, I started daydreaming about a spin-off. I mean, we have werewolves and banshees ... why not ghosts?

It's a shame that I can't find a functional reversebang, so I can try to get someone to fic this properly ... but I'm just going to go ahead and make so much art.

Here's a montage of 'excerpts' from the 'pilot episode.' )

And of course, there's the promotional image I posted awhile back, and ghostly embraces! [personal profile] ataratah even drew this lovely piece based on my original musing. I plan to do a whole bunch more "excerpt" images (although probably not another whole episode's worth). I guess I kind of needed an ongoing fandom project? :D?

Also, speaking of [personal profile] ataratah, here's one more piece of TW fanart based on a hilariously awesome prompt from her. Werewolf cabbage babies! )

Gotta dash (new temp job, whee), but before I forget - you guys REALLY SHOULD consider signing up for [community profile] femslashex! It's a MULTIFANDOM FIC AND ART EXCHANGE, focused on pairings with no canonically male-identified characters! There are so many amaaaazing fandoms. :D I'm so excited! It's great that more fests are starting to include art. <3

Also, this month I'm reccing Teen Wolf over on [community profile] fanart_recs, which is a great comm you should know about. I'll post a round-up here when I'm done. (Next month I'm doing Sailor Moon!)

Another huge fanart roundup, courtesy of the summer where I only have the energy to manage job search stuff, draw fanart, and let my whole professional identity lie pretty much fallow. :D?

Okay, that sounded a little ... yeah. Actually, things are looking up in a big way! I have a pretty big deal second interview tomorrow, for a position I'm genuinely excited for which also pays better than I'd had any hope of, so. Fingers crossed. And I am having a ball with letting myself soak more or less exclusively in fannish material for a bit. :)

Aaand last but not least, here are two more pieces for my birthday female characters doodle fest: the Queen and the Soldier (Serenity/Pluto) and Utena's birthday present. I know it's been months, but I'm still carrying the remaining prompts around, so you never know when more might pop up. :)

I can't believe there hasn't been any MCU fanart in all of this. I should fix that. Although I do kind of have (original) porn to be drawing, too.

At some point I really need to check around and see if there are any exciting bigbangs or reversebangs I want to participate in. I miss doing fic illustration so much ...

I swear I am going to post about WisCon soon. This last week has been exhausting ... hit the ground running with Check-In week at work the minute I got back, and over the weekend my roommates and I had a Serious Cleaning Discussion and also bought and moved furniture. Many good things, but I'm overtired and also having a lot of random anxiety. And some less random (money is terrible, news at eleven). So right now I'm inclined to relax, rewatch some Pretty Little Liars and draw some X-Men f/f fanart. (Finally meeting [personal profile] prozacpark has really been a huge fannish influence, to my delight.)

(When I do post, some of it will be at my other blog, since I spent a couple events very explicitly performing my ~professional identity ... nearly always happy to share the link with fanpeople who ask.)

Also I am feeling seriously cranky about Days of Future Past (I haven't seen it and I'm not going to), so fair warning there, probably not the best thing to discuss with me. Ridiculously excited about both Belle and Maleficent, though, so whatever. :D

Oh hey! I have been so terrible at every iteration of the internet, lately, and now here we are and it's almost time for WisCon! I still can't believe I'm finally going but yep, I'm leaving town tomorrow and I'll be in Madison Thursday afternoon. I can't wait to see so many of you fine folks there. <3

Recently I had the bright idea of producing a brand-new minicomic for a convention, only about a month in advance. A month is not a lot of time in comics; bad enough for those mainstream artists who have to put out an issue per month, but I had the concept/scripting to do too! Ahaha, I am so underslept, I literally finished the damn thing at 1 a.m. before the show. Everything seems easy after that, at least for now.

But anyway, yes! Here I am in the tiny breathing space between cons, scrambling around getting everything ready. I will have original art & minicomics in the Art Show this weekend! Pricing original art is hard, you guys.

I haven't had a ton of time for fannish pursuits lately, although I have one more completed female-character-fest doodle that I haven't managed to scan yet, and I'm watching the hell out of Orphan Black and Hannibal and dying to find time to read some Sam Wilson/Steve Rogers fics (preferably featuring lots of Natasha; Bucky can come too). And if you haven't read [personal profile] thingswithwings's adorable Embiggen (America Chavez and Kamala Khan!), get over there and do it already. <3 Where's my America solo book already, Marvel??

So last week I was watching some movies to get inspired for a comic I’m working on, and I found myself completing a little project I started way back in college.

See, Empire Records was a favorite and formative movie in my teen years! So like a lot of people, I bought the soundtrack, and to my dismay, discovered that it was tragically lacking. Naturally, once I bfound myself with filesharing technology, I took down a list of all the song titles featured at the end of the credits and started downloading. And then, with six or seven left (none of which seemed to exist anywhere on the internet), I lost interest, and just had a lot of really random nineties indie music floating around my computer forever after. Until now. :p

The (ALMOST) Complete EMPIRE RECORDS Playlist. )

Download the tracks here:
Part One | Part Two

I thought about trying to curate together my own version of the soundtrack (since this playlist is ridiculously long, and also many of the songs aren’t even really recognizable in the film), but eh. Maybe later. I figure you guys can do that for yourselves if you want. ;) Anyway, enjoy a little nostalgia on me?

Heyyy, sorry for disappearing off the face of the earth (again) ... I had a lovely, very full birthday weekend (with very tolerant friends!) and then things got all busy again, as they do. I have more than half a dozen awesome prompts I'm still planning to fill for the female character doodle challenge, all written safely down in my sketchbook! They might just be a bit staggered. (Convention season has been sneaking up on me, yikes.)

Here are a couple amazing things other people made for me for the fest (jeez I am still all a-flutter, you guys are so GREAT <3 <3 <3):
Bondage interruptus (Sailor Moon; Michiru/Haruka & Hotaru - pretty SFW) by [ profile] sae
Lydia and ghost!Allison team-up (Teen Wolf), by [personal profile] ataratah
Adorable Utena/Anthy vignette (Revolutionary Girl Utena), by [personal profile] alexmegami

And here's a quick round-up of what I've managed to produce so far:
♥TUXEDO ARCHER♥ (Teen Wolf/Sailor Moon fusion)
Leslie/waffles OTP doodle (Parks & Rec; prompted by [personal profile] analise010)
Alana Bloom puppy pile doodle (Hannibal; prompted by [personal profile] were_duck)
I AM FOUND doodle (Welcome to Night Vale; prompted by [personal profile] rhivolution)

So that was an awesome way to turn young for trees, basically. Love you allll.

Hey guys, you should leave me some prompts to doodle from for my little informal female characters fest! I encourage making things too, but give me something to do, yeah? ;)

This one’s not a doodle, but ... I’ve been meaning to draw it since early on in Teen Wolf season 3(a), and after this week in television, I needed something really ridiculous and fun. Plus, the theme song for the new Sailor Moon anime has been going around, and I am exciiited.

Allison Argent, dressed as Tuxedo Mask, runs through the night. Lovesick Sailor!Isaac and Sailor!Scott stare after her.

More appropriate tribute art later, I suspect, but I enjoyed this way too much. ;)
