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!

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 [tumblr.com 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: [livejournal.com profile] tw_fallharvest, [livejournal.com profile] teenwolf_bb, [tumblr.com profile] allydiareversebang, and [tumblr.com 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 [tumblr.com profile] fanartremixexchange, [community profile] femslashex, and [livejournal.com 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. :)

... and then I fell into an anxiety-riddled funk and kind of disappeared (online and IRL) for awhile. /o\ But hey! I've been doing a bunch of fanart to help pull myself out of it. Have a roundup? :D?

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 [livejournal.com 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. ;)

All right! I'm thinking this thing will run until the end of the day on Saturday, March 29. (I mean, semi-officially. If you want to share something later than that, well, yes please.) ENTIRELY loose and informal: make fanworks (any kind you like) focused on female characters and/or f/f pairings, share recs, leave prompts/commentfic/drabbles in my comments for me to doodle from (I will do my best! and if I don't get to it by the 29th, I will try to still do it) ... write something based on any doodles I manage to finish/post ... etc. I will be so incredibly thrilled with ANY participation. <3

Feel free to post things and/or link them in my comments here! That would be fabulous. (DW preferred, but LJ is fine too.)

Suggested fandoms list: Avengers (MCU)*, Elementary, Hannibal, Lost Girl, Orphan Black, Pacific Rim, Pretty Little Liars, Sailor Moon, Sleepy Hollow, Teen Wolf, Veronica Mars, Welcome to Night Vale, X-Men (comics)**, Young Avengers

*not Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (sorry)
**my familiarity with recent canon is ... not a lot. but what the heck. potentially of note: my favorite characters/OTP since forever are Rachel Summers and Kitty Pryde.


If we share/have shared other fandoms and you want to do something with one of them, that's cool! These are just the primary/current ones that come to mind right now. Also if you're not in any of my fandoms or you don't know me but you feel like celebrating female characters in ANY fandom, I think that would be fantastic!

<3 <3 <3
reflectedeve: Miss America Chavez growling "Come here. You have a head you don't need." (time to diiiiiie - fisticuffs!)
So my thirtieth birthday is coming up, which is very strange indeed. I'm not quite in the position of ... strength and security, that in some ways I would have hoped for at this little symbolic turning point. Then again, maybe there's an important symbolism in that very fact; I can strip down and remake my life, approach a new decade fresh. I will try to think of it that way, especially when I'm a bit less hormonal (and feeling less absurdly cranky about Teen Wolf).

I was wondering, though! I do not usually feel comfortable asking for things for my birthday, but maybe if people felt like it, we could have a bit of a celebration of female characters? I would love it if people wanted to prompt me or write drabbles about awesome ladies that I could draw from, or do some kind of super-mini-reversebang type thing. And if not that, all your favorite awesome female-character-centric and f/f recs would be gratefully accepted, too. Anything really!

BUT. If you might be interested in throwing a little commentfic around or something, let me know? I will post a list of suggested fandoms or something! <3

I miss you, dreamwidth. :( (Livejournal too, although I think that's a lost cause.) It's been a rough start to the year, struggling with unemployment and the usual emotional toll of the season. Social media has been especially hard.

Things have been looking up the last week or so though! I've been feeling really inspired to do fanart, although I have a lot of other creative commitments that generally take precedence. This weekend I took a Teen Wolf break. ;) I continue to really enjoy this half-season (to my continuing surprise, tbh).

Kira, Allison, Lydia and Cora display their various powers and weapons


I just really wanted to draw some badass supernatural teenage girls! And mess around with shiny coloring, something I hadn't done in awhile. Per usual, not at all sure I like it (the colors, I mean), so IDK, but it was still fun to work on. I took some liberties, especially with Lydia, since her abilities mostly haven't been very visually evident. Also, I'm hoping that at some point we'll get to see her use them with the practiced confidence she deploys in most social situations.

This second image contains SPOILERS for the end of episode 3x19, and a warning for blood/injury. Also FEELINGS. )

I find that I'm missing doing fic illustration a whole lot ... I wish TW fandom was producing more inspiring work. :/
