still mostly usin’ twitter! @_spookyfox!



long time no post! i went on vacation in june, and upon my return started working on an intensive freelance project with a tight deadline. all other free time was spent watching one of the best shows i’ve ever had the pleasure to watch: battlestar galactica. so i managed to find a few minutes free here and there to draw my three favorite characters from that show :) just started season 4! so sad that i have only this season left :’(

will be posting more starting next week!




robin williams died today.

here is a list of things that robin williams was:

  • funny
  • sharp
  • kind
  • clever
  • and sad.

that’s important, the “and sad,” because sometimes sadness can feel like the only thing we are. it can feel all-encompassing. it can feel like the only thing anyone could possibly see, when they look at you: sad. that person is so, so, sad.

but there is always an “and.” we are never just sad. we are never only. we are always and.

we have all known people who were sad, who are sad; some of us are ourselves sad. being sad does not remove the other parts of us, though it can make them harder for us to see. when you are sad, you don’t necessarily feel like you are also funny, and sharp, and clever, and kind.

but you still are. you don’t have to feel like something to be it.

those things are written on your bones, they are woven into the fabric of your skin. sadness can feel so big, so big and overwhelming and complete, even when it is not a directed sadness. maybe especially when it is not a directed sadness, when it’s a depression that has no direct cause and nothing we can name.

sometimes the sadness is too big. people try to cut it out, or starve it out, or drink it down, or drug it silent. if this is you: i’m sorry. if this is you: you are not alone. if this is you: remember that the solution is never to give up, because you do not live in a vacuum. there are people waiting for you. there are films and songs and books and not-sadness waiting for you. i know that you don’t feel like waiting, but wait anyway.

if you need help, ask for it. here’s a link to crisis centers across the globe. if you live in the U.S., this is the national suicide prevention hotline: 1-800-273-8255.

robin williams died today, but the genie didn’t, and mrs. doubtfire didn’t, and peter pan didn’t. sean maquire didn’t, and professor philip brainard didn’t, and alan parrish didn’t. batty koda didn’t. john keating didn’t. you didn’t. 


i wasn’t going to reblog anymore on this but i read this and i feel like there are probably some folks on here who might need to read it, too.


just never look at old things ever



do you ever have second-hand obsessions

like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend







if anyone has been wondering where i’ve mostly disappeared to… i’ve started using twitter (_spookyfox) kind of recently and just don’t check tumblr as thoroughly anymore.

also, for some reason, asks/fanmail get eaten a lot and it fills me with absolute vitriol. eugh. anyway! if you wanted to keep up with more frequent posts (i’m using the term ‘frequent’ loosely here) from me, i suggest following me there. as for contact.. tweeting me works well! or i can probably give you my skype if we’ve spoken a lot as mutual follows. i can also be found on myfigurecollection.net (heavyh3art) super often.

i mean, i’m not leaving tumbles or anything — just thought i’d make a post letting people know since i’ve been getting asks about it semi-often.
