These, for me, are the two most depressing paintings in western history. They were painted by post-impressionist Henry de Toulouse-Lautrec, a man who, due to inbreeding, was born with a genetic disorder that prevented his legs from growing after they were broken. After being so thoroughly mocked for is appearance, he became an alcoholic, which is what eventually caused his institutionalization and death. His only known romantic relations were with prostitutes.

And then he paints something like this which is so beautiful and tender and sentimental. It seems like the couple in bed really loves each other—cares about each other. Wakes up happy to look at each other. And I see that love and passion and I wonder how lonely he must have been. I wonder how he could paint something like this without it breaking his heart. 

Maybe they say artists should create what they know, not because its unbelievable when they extend themselves beyond their experiences, but because when they pull it off with such elegance, it’s so damn unbearable to look at. I hate thinking of Lautrec, wondering about the lovers he created and knowing it was beyond his experience. Creating something that he knows is beautiful and knows he’ll never really understand.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do something cute or something sexy 
so I did something dumb instead lol
Today was a great day because I did nothing but sit at home and draw and dick around on the internet. I have not done that in ages.
I’m glad flight rising is giving me some fodder for like OC’s and stuff.
Glam Rock Dragon has an intense admiration for who I affectionately call my Joseph Gordon Levitt dragon
lol so dumb but so fun
These little assholes don’t even have naaaaaaaaaaames
My Imps had a couple of bebehs!! They look so radically different that I thought they would be awesome as twinsies. I think that’s my schtick on FR- twins! I like twin dragons.
One is super into glam rock and impressing the ladies and dudes with his swagger. He’s all about the heavy eyeliner and #twerkteam
The other is a no-nonsense athlete stuff who likes Onitsuka Tigers and staying in shape
Both of them annoy the shit out of each other but utterly hate it if you mistake them as just friends or not being related because they take their twin status super serial

Anonymous said: What would your parents do if you brought a white guy back home to meet them anyway?

Depends on the white guy. My parents generally like people with degrees/advanced degrees, stable and/or respectable jobs, and good conversational skills. Charismatic people win them over easily (it’s how Obama got their vote, but then again, he was against McCain who has the charisma of day old dog shit).

They’ve gotten a lot more progressive over the years. Maybe it’s the natural way of things. It sort of helps that my mom went to school in a very liberal area and that my dad trusts my mom’s judgement in character a lot.  I would even venture that they’d come around if I hypothetically brought home a female partner/significant other— it’d just take a little bit longer. Also if I didn’t come out to them first, they’d probably be hurt and would have a harder time accepting  any same-sex SO because of that. 

Re: Milo Manara “scandal”

Been seeing that thing about the Milo Manara Spider Woman cover on my facebook and tumblr feeds a lot.

There are a lot of things to be said and I could probably write entire essays about my particular stance on this cover and similar controversies.

I’ll be honest, I don’t think there’s much wrong with the cover, especially considering that it was drawn by Milo Manara. I would go so far as to say that he makes complete sense and that I agree with him and his rationale for the cover almost completely except that…

"He also expressed his admiration for Greg Land’s alternative cover, also criticised, as more realistic and using models.”

… Burn this motherfucker. Greg Land is Satan and only one of Satan’s underlings could ever express appreciation for his sinful deeds

Anonymous said: Tattoos are slutty though, what would your dad say?

Oops, guess it’s too late for that. I am already a slut. I am already engaging in the sex freely and without (relative) prejudice. 

Like a scarlet letter to the chest, I guess now I need some serious ink to advertise my unwholesome and dirtied nature to the world. Woe is me for the judgment of many is great and I am deeply apologetic for my misdeeds. 

(Dad would probably not care as long as it looked cool. LIke I mean, my parents are pretty conservative, sure, but they can recognize the agency I have over my body and my life, whatever.)

A Warning

Some of you may be curious as to why I was upset at Otakon on Saturday. I just need to get this out and clear the air. Yea, I am still hurt and I feel betrayed by this and it’s been feeding my growing distrust of fellow artists. I understand that my post may result in a public backlash but I can’t…

ughhhhh I’m incredibly sorry. I know I can’t make it up to you with fucking up the print exchange. It’s why Shy is usually in control of handling our trades that we have to ship out becuase she handles all our online stuff. I’m usually too scatter brained w/ returning to work after conventions. I’m horrible about that so I take 100% responsibility for being a dumbass and letting down your standards of people. I can PM you about that in a sec.

As far as the Mordin print- I just wanted to make a bust shot w/ the most heart breaking quote in the game relating to my most fav character, as well as having a Thane and Tali w/ similar heart breaking slogans. Yes remember chatting w/ you last year and still have your print!  I’m honestly not sure what I can say for myself besides I had no intention in ripping off your art or any other artist in anyway @ _ @;; I just wanted to draw Mordin w/ the sea shell instead of a flower crown because I thought that would be adorably heart breaking and his final farewell because my heart strings.  I didn’t have your drawing in mind when I made my Mordin, and if there was lingering influence/inspiration of yours in my head when I came up with it, it’s not something I realized given how common it felt w/ the character’s backstory and impactful moments from the game.

I think you have every right to be upset so I have no qualms w/ you posting this. I understand as much as I can for being a dope and fucking up so again- I’m sorry for what it’s worth and I hope this helps a bit? You can always send me a message through tumblr.

-COEY!

Here’s my big issues with this “apology.”

You readily admit that you are terrible at responding to PM’s or any kind of online contact, yet invite Susan to send you a message through tumblr.  To what avail? To my knowledge, contact THROUGH TUMBLR was attempted in addition to the two emails.  Are you just asking her to waste her time now, or are you really really truly sorry and will respond to the message now promise, now that it has sort of blown up and received some publicity?  I realize how biting and accusatory that sounds, but I mean, I’m fucking pissed on behalf of my friend, not just for the “coincidence” but this kind of treatment.

Here’s the thing. People are scatterbrained, artists in particular tend to be pretty disorganized, spacey, whatever you want to call it. At some point, however, that sort of quirk only goes so far, and I feel that if you want to take your art to a professional level, which you obviously have, you also have to take your communication to a professional level. When it comes to interacting with OTHER ARTISTS and fellow creators, responding becomes a matter of RESPECT, not “oops I forgot.” To me, ignoring or “forgetting” to read emails just shows that feedback from potential customers, outreach from other artists, and attempts at communication to you just…. aren’t worth your time. When something as heinous as art theft also falls under that radar, well, I begin to seriously doubt your integrity as an artist and professional. 

To add onto this, since this incident, multiple people have come out, either anonymously or not, of other “mishaps” or lost orders, commissions, even stories of copied or eerily coincidental images, showing to me that you haven’t seemed to take any measures to improve on your poor communication skills.  At what point do we have to keep accepting your apologies while you seemingly do nothing to stop this behavior and cause MORE people to waste their time and money on your products?  

An apology means that you are sorry and you will try not to let things happen again. Based on this incident, I don’t think that has happened and because of that, I find your apology disingenuous.  Try harder.
