WE DID IT!  Valor is FUNDED!  


…but why stop there?  Help us hit our stretch goals:  donating Valor to libraries, creating a digital artbook, and offering a hardcover edition are just some of the things we want to accomplish with this incredible project.

As Ash said yesterday, this is a chance to be a part of something special.  This is a chance to see the stories you heard growing up reimagined, rebuilt, reworked:  this is a chance to see fairytales the way you’ve always wanted them, with heroines standing front and center.  Valor will show you just how much princesses don’t belong in towers.  Valor will show you that princes aren’t always the ones who slay the dragons, fight the monsters, win the battles. Valor will show you that women — fierce women, bright women, cunning women, stunning women — can move mountains, make magic, and earn more than than your average happily-ever-after.

Do it for yourself.  Do it for children.  Change once upon a time once and for all.

Meanwhile, here’s a sneak preview at the concepts for my submission to the Valor anthology!  And don’t forget the new reward tiers:  if you purchase THE ASH, you could get a custom fairytale written by Ash and illustrated by me.  =)

I’m so incredibly excited for this! Check it out! And hey, even if all you have is five dollars you can still get a full digital copy of this wonderful anthology. All the artists are incredibly talented. I’m looking forward to enjoying these stories for years to come and sharing them with my niece and nephews when they are ready for them!

Valor: A fairy tale anthology about courageous heroines starts today!

Valor is a comic anthology of re-imaged fairy tales showcasing the talent of some of the top creators in the field of digital comics. The purpose of this book is to pay homage to the strength, resourcefulness, and cunning of female heroines in fairy tales. Some of these are recreations of time-honored tales. Others are brand new stories, designed to be passed to future generations.

The anthology will be young adult friendly and in color, each story being 4 to 15 pages long.

Image: A little boy (who looks between 3 to 5 years old) is surrounded by Rottweiler puppies. He picks one up awkwardly but very gently. He says, “Don’t worry, everyone gets a turn. Hi, buddy.” The boy holds the puppy close, rests his head on it and closes his eyes.

Why do people sexualize boobs when we could be doing this with them

i cant stop laughing

always reblog

I can’t even handle how funny this is, oh god, my face hurts!

Image: There are two breasts. The breasts have faces drawn on them. They are wearing hats on their nipples. One breast has a fedora and the other has a party hat. The Party Breast jiggles at the Fedora Breast with a happy face. The Party Breast’s face becomes shocked as the Breasts notice an opened birthday present on the model’s abdomen. The Fedora Breast looks at the present, also with a shocked face, and then looks back at the Party Breast. The Party Breast now has an angry face. It jiggles rapidly at the Fedora Breast as though it is yelling. Now both Breasts have angry faces and they are being jiggled quickly, one after the other and some times both at once to make it look like they are yelling at each other and I wish I could truly convey how hilarious it looks.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

You know that type of laughter that starts off as a small chuckle but kinda builds up inside your throat, eventually mounting into a full blown, bent over yourself, holding your stomach as you guffaw uproariously?Yeeeep.

this should be a sculpture about the human condition entitled ‘Unbridled Optimism Meets An Uncaring Universe’

There are photos that tell a story, then there are photos that tell a story.


Photograph: There is a bicycle with both wheels sunk partly into the cement. Behind the bicycle are two tire tracks, one mostly straight and the other curved back and forth indicating wild swerving. Next to the bicycle are footsteps that lead away from it off the cement.
