Good friends of mine run an amazing Dog Rescue out in NJ. Their latest rescue is in need of surgery to remove a shoulder mass. If you’re in a place to help / donate, even if it’s only a few dollars, please do so! Holly has made an amazing recovery in recent weeks, and this is the next step so that she can placed with a good home. 

Who, me?

I’m a maker: I make art. I make crafts. I make food. Sometimes I make sense. Other times I make nonsense. I make believe. I make bad jokes, and terrible puns. I make time to practice so that I can make perfect. I make friends who make trouble. I make messes. I make mistakes but, I always manage to make it up in the end. I make up my mind; some days faster than others. Sometimes, I even make money. Who, me? Yeah, I make things. 

Perfection.

Beautifully said.

Teaser time! Continuing the tributes series - The Adults of district 12. Still very much in progress.

Still in progress. The whole house has been hit with a seasonal head cold/flu, so abject misery abounds. But I’ve been able to get a bit of freehand art in there….

TRIBUTES OF DISTRICT 12. 

Trying to give good imagery for several characters from the books we never get to meet in the films. So, from Left to Right; 

Rory Hawthorne, Gale Hawthore, Primrose Everdeen (Accompanied by Lady & Buttercup), Leevy Johnson, Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, Delly Cartwright, Middle brother Mellark (Unnamed in the books), and Madge Undersee. 

I really tried to not let this sketch spiral out of control (Because, oh, it could have spiraled so far…) But this is def. part 1 in a series. 

Kudos to the many fanfic authors out there, who have written the smaller characters into their series, and helped give me a good visual to work with. 

And thanks to whiskeysnarker, who was the equivalent of a beta while I worked on this. ^^ 

Reblogging for the evening peeps. ^^

labcreatedruby said: Not sure how you'll feel about it, but just an fyi... I follow a FB page called Nathan Fillion Fans, and they posted a piece of your art, Chibi Mal and Inara, on their page without giving credit, just saying "credits to the unknown artist" even though your watermark with your tumblr was plainly visible (that's how I found you. Your art is fantastic, btw). Obviously they didn't ask permission or link back to you as they should have, and I thought you might like to know. Cheers!

Thanks for the heads up (And possibly shooting them an FYI, since I see that it’s now credited!). I don’t get to bent out of shape over these things, and it’s the main reason all of my work is heavily watermarked. It’s the internet, it happens, hopefully it’s credited. I put more concern to such things when people are A) taking credit for something I made or B) making various goods from it, and trying to sell for profit. 

I always appreciate the eyes and ears tho, and hey! Welcome to the blog. ^^

I’m having a catch up day today - trying to finish up my D12 Tributes as well as organize and ship a few orders. So I’m going to leave all of you with this oldie.

Everlark Drabble Challenge - Night of the Undead

dispatchesfromdistrict7:

chistudios challenged me to the THG!Drabble Challenge and I accepted with the prompt Halloween. This prompt kind of got away from me. 1,456 words! All mistakes are my own.

I now challenge bohemianrider and jennagill. The prompt is Community Theater. You have 48 hours to accept (however I’m flexible).

Night of the Undead

From the Sometimes You Get What You Need Universe years later on Halloween. Rated Z for discussion of Zombies.

Katniss struggled to zip her leather vest. She blew out a breath of exasperation; this vest was going to fit. On her exhale, the zipper finally cooperated and zipped to her sternum. Her pink tank top and the snug vest that she had worn for years could barely contain her breasts. She knew she better get this show on the road because in a few hours it would only get worse as her breasts filled to feed little Graham.

She adjusted her headband when she heard dragging behind her. She turned and smiled as she saw her small daughter carrying the ersatz katana sword that was part Katniss’ costume, stomping around in cowboy boots that were about a half a size too large.

“Mama, we need to hurry up. Daddy is waiting for us and we don’t want him leave without us to go trick-o-treating.”

THG fic - To Hear Your Voice

sabaceanbabe:

I was tagged/challenged by the incredibly talented chistudios to create something in the Hunger Games universe for the theme/prompt “Halloween.”  It got away from me, just a little, and it turned a little darker/angstier than I’d planned, but here you go.  A 1,600 word one-shot featuring Finnick, Enobaria, a Capitol Halloween party, and a late night phone call to one Annie Cresta.  Enjoy!  (Or, you know, cry, whichever.)

Oh!  And please let me know if there’s a problem with the read more.  I never have had much luck with them.

——————————————————————-

“What the hell are you supposed to be?”

Finnick looked down at his costume, which consisted of thin fabric covered in iridescent scales that shimmered in brilliant shades of green and blue and purple.  When he stood still, as he was just then, his stylist’s creation gave the illusion of a long, muscular tail with fins, rather than his own two legs.  Beneath the fins, his feet were bare; above the tail, which started just above his groin, the rest of him was equally bare.

“Haven’t you ever seen a merman before?”  Enobaria’s only response was one raised eyebrow, nearly lost in the thick, silky fur that covered her head and neck, her shoulders and back, hips and legs.  It was the same base color as her hair, streaked with tawny gold.  The combination of fur and bare skin drew the eye and all but begged to be touched, just like his own smooth and scaly costume, and he couldn’t suppress a shudder.
