Into the Forest by Miranda Meeks. 2014. Digital.
I’ve been working on this piece on and off for the past few weeks. I’m really excited to add a book cover-type image to my portfolio. Maybe there is a story behind this illustration? I’ll leave that up to you :)
If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint’, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow
Important!!! Also people should really REALLY think before they go saying something stupid like, “You’d be so much better off your pills, you’re too dependent on them!” Going off SSRI’s cold turkey can have huge side effects (one of which is suicidal thoughts), which is why doctors like to keep in touch while you’re doing it. Telling people to quit their meds without having done any research into what those meds are and what side effects they could potentially face if they quit them is incredibly ignorant. Please don’t say stuff like this: think of the damage that would be caused if people actually took that advice.

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD

It is so exceptionally hard to pull off that cartoony look, but this chick like… knocked it out of the park. Perfection.
OH MY GOD THIS COSPLAYER
seriously JUST BROWSE HER GALLERY
Hollywood: “But we can’t make the costumes look like they do in the comic books or cartoons! It’s too unrealistic!”
Hollywood: “It won’t look right!”
Hollywood: “Fans demand realism!”
Me: "YOU SIT ON A THRONE OF LIIIEEESSS!!!!!"
I’ve seen most of her cosplays through the internet over the past few years. When I rummaged through her gallery I shit bricks as I realized so much awesome came from one person.

WINGS ARE A PAIN IN THE PINIONS TO DRAW

Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of by the folk.
