#Commission stuff, #mastoart i guess?
Hey, I've working on stuff lately! And I need a new drawing tablet, since mine is busted!
So uh, this seems like a reasonable way to maybe go about picking up some extra scratch, as I'm broke.
If you want to commission an avatar or emoticon pack, hit me up with a dm!

re: 90s kid shit, animation dorkery
also, something that interests me about cartoons is when something really um "cartoon-y" happens that's actually not commonly used. It just unconsciously feels cartoony. Spongebob was really good at that.
I just rewatched an episode and remembered that Ed, Edd, and Eddy did this thing with sound design that's really neat? like
there are CONSTANT sound effects, including, like, metaphorical ones? Someone gets sad and there's whining puppy in the background. Someone falls and you hear elevator dings go by. That's a really interesting thing to force yourself to commit to.
The show uses character motifs a LOT. And like, leans on specific instruments for specific characters. It stays near the realm of brassy jazzery, so the music is CONSTANTLY going back and forth, but isn't jarring. I'm really impressed.
90s kid shit, animation dorkery
So I was just thinking about Ed, Edd, and Eddy - a show I loved as a kid but don't think much about as an adult. The violent slapstick made me uncomfortable as a kid cause, geez.
But like, looking back, it's a beautiful, wonderfully directed series, and I've never seen anything like it. It has such an indie late-80s-animation vibe, and it's surreal, but in a relatable way? Like, the way they drew houses and used color and stuff was kind of amazing.
In honor of bones day I am posting a fan comic I drew of @zoey 's Acorn City about those good bones
