Student selfies for democracy.

Instagram users in Hong Kong are posting photos of their student photos in solidarity with student protestors (dozens of whom were arrested two nights ago) and with the current, ongoing democracy protest.

Follow #OccupyCentral on Twitter for more.

Very very harrowing. Imagery reminiscent of Ferguson. More info from SCMP.

So I’ve been reading this incredible book on Disney animation from the 80s that talks about the studio’s development from making shorts to Snow White to 101 Dalmatians. (Written by two of the animators themselves!)

And my drawings are becoming Disneyfied as a result!

Review: Frontier #5 by gingerlandcomics
The fifth book in the Youth in Decline’s Frontier series features a short story by the up and coming Sam Alden. This story is, as he says, a “DVD extra” from his longer work, “Hollow,” about a family that lives near a mysterious sinkhole.Though this wasn’t Alden’s best work, it’s still very, very good and the first work of his I’ve seen in print. The storytelling is, as always, superb and his use of color as a narrative and symbolic device is very interesting. If anything, it makes me want to read the longer, yet to be released “Hollow.”
Buy the book here.

How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?

Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy

Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.

so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic

This revelation just knocked me over.

LET ME TELL YOU A THING ABOUT JOHN RONALD REUEL TOLKIEN. BACK THE FUCK UP SIT THE FUCK DOWN YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING YOU’RE FUCKING JON SNOW HERE. LET ME TELL U A THING

JONNY T WAS LITERALLY THE BIGGEST FANBOY TO EVER WALK THE EARTH. LITERALLY THIS FUCKIN NERD WENT INTO WORLD WAR ONE AND WROTE NORSEFIC EDDA FANFIC IN THE TRENCHES AND SENT IT TO ALL HIS FRIENDS WHO WERE PRESUMABLY LIKE “JOHN WHAT THE FUCK”

BUT IT DOESN’T END THERE

HIS WIFE? MADE HER AND HIMSELF INTO SELF-INSERT OCS IN SAID FIC. ALSO MADE HIMSELF A TOTAL TYR SELF INSERT CHARACTER. ALL VERY DRAMATIC. KEPT WRITING THIS FIC UNTIL IT WAS HUGE. AFTER HE DIED HIS SON PUBLISHED IT AND CALLED IT THE SILMARILLION. JRR YOU FUCKIN NERD

WAIT I’M NOT FUCKING DONE YET. TREEBEARD? BASED THE WAY HE TALKED OF HIS OLD FRIEND JACK WHO YOU ALL MIGHT KNOW AS CS LEWIS. THAT’S RIGHT. THAT NARNIA MOTHERFUCKER. WROTE HIM INTO LORD OF THE RINGS AKA THE SEQUEL TO THE SEQUEL OF HIS ORIGINAL FANFIC MASTERPIECE. CS LEWIS FUCKING HATED LORD OF THE RINGS. TOLKIEN FUCKING HATED NARNIA. BASICALLY THEY STARTED THE OXFORD PROFESSOR LIVEJOURNAL CLUB AND THEY FLAMED EACH OTHER’S SHIT RELENTLESSLY YET REMAINED BFFS

SHELOB? FUCKING TARANTULA BIT J-TIDDY ON THE FOOT WHEN HE WAS LIKE 3. WROTE IT INTO LORD OF THE RINGS.

HIS AUNT’S HOUSE? NAMED BAG END. YEAH YOU GUESSED IT WROTE IT INTO LORD OF THE RINGS

THIS FUCKING DORKUS SUPREME MADE UP HIS OWN LANGUAGE. WAIT NO IM WRONG. HE MADE UP LIKE 80 LANGUAGES AND DIALECTS AND ALPHABETS AND SHIT 

BEST PART OF ALL?? HIS OWN LAST NAME, TOLKIEN, WAS DERIVED FROM THE GERMAN “TOLKHUN” MEANING “FOOLHARDY”. DOES THAT RING A BELL TO ANYONE FAMILIAR TO LORD OF THE RINGS??? BECAUSE YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT PEREGRIN “PIPPIN” TOOK’S LIKE FUCKING CATCHPHRASE WAS “FOOL OF A TOOK”. TOLKIEN FIC’D HIS OWN FAMILIAL LINGUISTIC HISTORY INTO HIS WORK WHAT A DWEEB

IN 2008 HE RANKED 6TH ON A LIST OF THE TOP 50 BRITISH WRITERS SINCE 1945. HE WAS A PROFESSOR OF LANGUAGES AND OTHER IMPORTANT STUFFY SHIT AT OXFORD

AND JRR TOLKIEN WAS THE BIGGEST DWEEB EVER TO LIVE

THE END

I started a Patreon! If you’d be interested in pledging a coupla bucks a month, it would be just lovely, and you’d have access to as much sketchbook stuff and pre-release art as I can get to you. I don’t think there’s ever been a platform like this before, and it presents a very exciting opportunity for people with weird jobs like myself!
I will not put Vattu or any major work behind a paywall. I am committed to making much of my work available for free. Patreon allows you to support my work if you’d like, but it’s personally and professionally important to me that you can read it without paying anything, too!
I don’t really know what to expect, but I have some cool things it would allow me to do, if it does well enough. The first one is the Rice Boy Rerun Blog, which I’ve mentioned before…
Thank you so much for reading!

Wow, I really hadn’t thought about never putting a work behind a paywall – but it makes so much sense for the internetz. Bravo evandahm!
