Avatar: The Last Airbender — Last Agni Kai/The Phoenix King
the single most heartbreaking piece of music to ever be music ever ever ever ever ever ever
I remember when this came on and I was expecting some huge battle music, but then the strings came in and the drums did too, and I realised that ending battle was this sad, terrible thing that wasn’t supposed to be happening, and I just kinda sank into my couch at that point…

You can’t be rushed when you’re making wine. You have to give it patience and care, and be willing to accept it for whatever its chemicals and nature deem it will become. You can make adjustments here and there, to be sure, but nature will ultimately dictate the outcome. There are some things you simply cannot force. A great wine, made with love and care, is one of them.

New York-based wine critic Thomas Baldwin can make or break careers with his column for Taste Magazine. But when his publisher orders him to spend a year profiling rising stars of California’s wine country and organizing a competition between the big name wineries of Napa and the smaller artisan wineries of Sonoma, his world gets turned upside-down by an enigmatic young winemaker who puts art before business.
Sotto Voce is the story of love and wine, and how both require patience, passion, an acceptance of change—and an understanding that sometimes, you have to let nature take its course.

“Another time, Jack took a call. A voice on the other end said, ‘There are three of us down here in the lobby. We want to see the guy who does this disgusting comic book and show him what real Nazis would do to his Captain America’. To the horror of others in the office, Kirby rolled up his sleeves and headed downstairs. The callers, however, were gone by the time he arrived.”—

It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.
oooooooh man haru’s struggles have hit waaaaay too close to home this season lol oh no when did i start identifying with him so much GOSH this was supposed to be a dumb swimming anime it was supposed to be stupid I DIDN’T SIGN UP FOR THIS
Sorry if I have asked this before: but the upcoming RS graphic novel next month will be completely in black & white, with some greyscales and screentones applied, right? Since a GN obviously takes longer to draw, I assume you drew it slowly, piece by piece, alongside the stories for the main comic and other commissioned work?
lol idk I just drew the cover, but the amazing Tessa Stone drew the book! It probably will, that’s what the AT ones were. I’ve read the script though and had some input…my main input being WOW IT’S AWESOME.
Seriously, it’s like…what my dream RS script would be, I was laughing so damn hard! I’d read it over the issues. That’s. Probably not what I should be saying, but. I probably should be jealous but man I know Tessa killed it, I love her work to pieces!! Everyone should get the book, it has a ball python in it just like my sweet baby!! :’D xoxo~! <3
That final full page panel at the cliffhanger for RS 14 is really great! I like how you add other anthropomorphic characters into the crowd, something that the show only did at the beginning.
Ah, thank you so much!! :D I always have fun with the background characters and aggressively put Thomas in the comic anywhere I can. There are a lot of hidden things in the next one but I think I may have forgotten to put more anths in…if they’re not there it’s cause I just forget haha but yeah I try to do it when I can.
I actually have a step-by-step shots of this on where I was gonna try to explain how I do warped perspective…maybe I’ll do that next week after more people had a chance to see it, but here’s a preview! :)
Or, well, I guess this is most of it lol. idk if people want a detailed explanation of this stuff, it’s something I do mainly by instinct now anyway. well. thanks again!!! xoxox
