Feel free to share with your friends or download for personal use! There are many ways to paint and these are my humble thoughts. I hope you enjoy!
Cecil then tried to explain him that angels aren’t real but Carlos wouldn’t stop shaking.
I’ve been working on a game for a while called Dead Century. It’s sort of an Indiana-Jonesy adventure Puzzle/RPG concoction. I think it’s clear to everyone at this point that women, people of color, and queer people of all sorts are represented pretty poorly in modern video games. To that end, I’m making an effort to “be the change” I want to see. The biggest example being that the player can choose from three different appearances for each of their characters, each with a different gender and ethnic background. It’s mostly a cosmetic difference but it’s my little contribution to what I hope will soon become a larger thing in the video game world. Oh there are also some gay kisses and badass ladies.
Anyway, if that sounds like a good idea, you can check it out here or just retumbl, which is free!
Dear humans, please help Kickstart my friend’s queer inclusive (among many other things) video game! Be the change and show the world that there is a demand for games that are inclusive!
This is my 100th post on tumblr, woohoo!! Let’s celebrate with 2 dark pieces. The top one is for a short story titled “Warm Up” by the one and the only V.E. Schwab. "Warm Up" is a warm up for the page-turner "VICIOUS”. Both the novelette and the novel take place in a world where ordinary people are able to gain extraordinary power with near-death experiences. You can read it here on Tor.com.
I love partnering with Miss. Schwab, she makes me feel badass. When I work with her stories, the shadows in my studio lengthen, light creeps around like smoky liquid. Everything turns into black and white film noire style. And I, would be wearing a trench coat in front of my drafting table, with my fem fatale on my lap.
Big thanks to AD Irene Gallo for matching us up!!
The second piece ran in Saturday’s New York Times op-Ed. Did you New Yorker know that the beautiful Palisades just off the Hudson River is also a monument to the End-Triassic apocalypse? Also, ‘ “In terms of global warming and ocean acidification,” Professor Olsen said, the rate of change during the end-Triassic extinction “was comparable to what we’re doing today.” ’ Maybe the Palisades will also witness the extinction of human, pretty grim eh?
Big thanks to AD Matt, always a pleasure to work with. You can read the article here.
