Random, fandom and stuff …
Germans: Oh you’re learning German? Hey, you’re not so bad at it. Don’t fuck it up though.
French: About time you learned French.
Russians, Koreans, Spanish-speakers: WOW YOU’RE LEARNING MY LANGUAGE? LET ME HELP YOU I CAN GET SOME MATERIALS FOR YOU AND RECOMMEND SOME SITES AND VIDEOS, DID YOU JUST SAY “HELLO” IN MY LANGUAGE? YOU ARE SO GREAT WOW I AM SO IMPRESSED
Dutch: but why would you do this

I am German and my reaction usually is “Let me apologise…”
Work in progress. 22/08/2014, ink and watercolour.
Updates: last Wednesday, I sent the Beauty and the Beast artbook to the printing house. I expect to receive the printed copies around Thursday.
Except for the illustration seen above, I’m currently working on a set of commissioned visuals for a music game app. It’s going to be rather steampunkish.
Also, looking for a good scanner. What a pain in the bottom.
It’s been a while since the last “little bit of music” day, so here’s Drain Away by Dir En Grey.
People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.

This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:
Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.
SUCH A BABY.
OKAY I have to drop some newly acquired knowledge, and maybe a lot of people already know this BUT LISTEN
Hippos are, like…real, living land whales. It’s been genetically proven that their closest relatives are NOT pigs as was once believed, but whales! Hippos even make whistles and clicks underwater to communicate as well as help them “see” in murky waters.
They also have some incredibly thick skin that is extremely difficult to cut, and when they do get injured their skin secretes a special fluid that acts like a natural antibiotic ointment that prevents infections and speeds up the healing process. And this fluid turns blood red when it meets the air, so it looks pretty badass, too.
Also, the bones in their limbs are SOLID. There is no marrow, no hollow space, they are 100% BONE, MOTHERFUCKER. It helps weigh them down in the water so they can more easily submerge, and it helps support their weight on land. These bones can withstand the impact of a running hippo, and they aren’t slow, either!
Hippos are also responsible for more human deaths annually than crocodiles or other predators like lions and so on. Because they don’t take no shit, bro.
HIPPOS ARE REALLY FREAKING COOL, YOU GUYS.
*whispers* the number one cause of baby hippo deaths is adult male hippos
That’s because somewhere between that adorable squishy above and adulthood, they become one of the most aggressive animals on earth.
