My cover entry for The Price of Dawn—heck yes digital-only and thus being able to get away with black on black without printing nightmares.
So, I learned to make GIFs with text today. Tumblr, I give thee this.
Ladies and gentlemen, art school.
A year into Tumblr and I finally decide to learn to make gifs with text on them.
a teacher at my school has these posted on the side of her desk
I gave these to my teacher and she stuck them up all over the school.
I was expecting it to say “that’s so raven” but then it got very serious very quickly
Reblogging my own work for probably the most hilarious comment I’ve seen on this yet.
me: does this look better one pixel to the left or one pixel to the right
me: I can't decide between these two incredibly similar colors
me: should this be on overlay or soft light
me: 75% OR 74% OPACITY
If you’ve been lurking for a while thinking about buying a poster or a t-shirt, here’s your chance!
Recently I have received echoes down this way of the Hanover County School Board’s activities, and what I’ve heard makes me wonder if any of its members can read.
Surely it is plain to the simplest intelligence that “To Kill a Mockingbird” spells out in words of seldom more than two syllables a code of honor and conduct, Christian in its ethic, that is the heritage of all Southerners. To hear that the novel is “immoral” has made me count the years between now and 1984, for I have yet to come across a better example of doublethink.
I feel, however, that the problem is one of illiteracy, not Marxism. Therefore I enclose a small contribution to the Beadle Bumble Fund that I hope will be used to enroll the Hanover County School Board in any first grade of its choice.
— Lesson of the day: Harper Lee was one badass writerly lady.
Petulant: Childishly sulky or bad-tempered. This adjective finds its origin in late 16th century Latin with petulant (impudent), which comes from the word petere (aim at, seek). It was then carried over to Middle French as pétulant. The definition of petulant as we use it today dates back to the 18th century English word, pettish.
