when i was younger i had a really bad fear of vampires when i was going to sleep so my older brother gave me a watch that he set to like 8 hours ahead so that it was always daytime on the watch when i was asleep and he told me it would confuse the vampires and they would think it was daytime and get scared of the sun and leave me alon
Your brother is the best
My sisters pretty scared of moths and it bothered me that I’d had to take care of any moths in the vicinity because she’d spaz out. So I got a random jar and told her it was a specially-made moth capturing jar. We used it for a year and it was good- we’d just get the jar, trap the moth and release it outside.
Sometimes, when she annoyed me, I’d take the jar, capture a moth and release it into her room.
And hide the jar.
After a year, we lost the jar. Now she’s just learned to either ignore moths or use some other container.
my art teacher said this to me today. he said i can’t use some of my favourite fantasy mangas as just references because the exam board doesn’t even see manga as real art and will down grade me if i use them.
please reblog if you disagree as i do because i just need to call this out as bullshit
I’ve had experiences like this before…
To get over that hurdle, you just gotta prove them wrong.
For one of my assignments, I drew a 7 page A3 comic about a man who transforms into Sailormoon stuck in another dimension. I ticked all the boxes; technique, theme, colour, composition etc etc
And I passed.
I kept lots of sketchbooks filled with random doodles and freehand work and got into art school with several A5 sketchbooks that I had on me at the time. It was a rushed thing, I felt like going to check it out and next thing I knew, I had an interview… Anyways, I got in just with some informal sketches rather than a classic portfolio.
