My grandma was telling me about something my step-grandpa used to say to her all the time, which was,
“I love you even more than I did yesterday, and still less than I will tomorrow.”

ANYWAY ALSO THERE ARE A LOT OF SUDDEN NEW FOLLOWERS ON THIS BLOG AND I JUST WANTED TO SAY HELLO AND THANK YOU SO MUCH…..

                  OPENING SHORT-TERM BUST COMMISSIONS

  HELLO FRIENDS I’m going on vacation, which is awesome! But that means I’m not working, which is… Well it’s awesome, but for my wallet, it’s horrifying. So! Help me make ends meet so I’m not freaking out my whole trip!!


  I’m leaving on Sunday, But will be doing commissions throughout tomorrow and Saturday. Slots are limited! If you’re interested, please contact me at EPASketch@gmail.com, so that I can confirm I have enough time to get to yours!

  Again, these are just bust-shots this time around, but I’ll draw just about any character— except mechs, unless they’re, like, super simple… So, yeah! Shoot me an e-mail, since Tumblr is just horrible at actually sending messages right…

Anonymous asked:

What pronouns does Matt prefer to use?

Sketchy Scratchums Answer:

Mostly “he”, “him”, “his”! He doesn’t mind people using “feminine” terms to describe him, he thinks it’s a compliment since even though his recollection is skewed, he comes from a very matriarchal society…. Being referred to as a woman would be the opposite of an insult, except he knows of course what it typically means in modern culture… ANYWAY I’M BLATHERING, but he goes by he, him pronouns. He identifies as a boy mostly in connection to his anatomy, but if you asked him which gender he emotionally identified with he’d probably make a point of asking you how exactly they differ and get into talking about gender politics and stereotypes…

Anonymous asked:

Is Matt some sort of Magical boy/girl?

Sketchy Scratchums Answer:

HE LIKES TO THINK HE IS but in honesty no like… literally, he’s not magical at all… though in RP my friends and I tend to exaggerate things… WELL I GUESS HE KIND OF IS A LITTLE SPOOKY I mean he and vice in rp have this shared link…. And Matt’s mental self is pretty strong, like enough that he… hrmm…. YOU KNOW HOW IN HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, THE DISNEY ONE, the gargoyles were supposed to be imaginary, but they still managed to do things that affected reality…. and you’re like wtf that’s just supposed to be in quasi’s head…. we’re kind of playing by those rules here….. Matt’s only pretty certain “magical spookies” is that he shares a headspace, over a “frequency”, with Vice… And that Matt can sort of influence his partner’s dreams a bit…. observe, interfere, distort… but he has to be vveeEEErryyy close to them, with some similarities he can pick up on…. basically anything Matt’s able to do that’s unusual is to a degree that someone might write it off as a strange thing that didn’t really happen… because even if you’re a semi-malevolent psychological fragment of a space lord in your head, if only two people including yourself know, nobody else sees you as such…

Thank you, mobile app, for eating my original post… anyway, was asked to draw a sign for work for a book signing we’re hosting this weekend… I’ve never really drawn food, and I’m not very fond of chalk, so to do a complicated cake in a time crunch with a very basic chalk set… hoo boy… but it turned out okay! Learned a lot and stretched my doodle legs, and most importantly, my manager and supervisors love it!

YOU KNOW WHAT I’M STILL PROUD

Wow guys I was a really cool kid? It’s weird, I took a huge doodle break… I kind of got going at 12, 13, then went “nah” and literally played with my Playmobil and videogames and slept a lot…. And wrote! That was it, I got into writing! I got really reallY into writing, too. And then I didn’t pick it back up again with any really interest probably until closer to 2007, SO, that’s… yeah. My OC’s are literally older than a lot of people on this site, mind you I’ve had them before I even started drawing.

They’ve gone through a LOT of incarnations— Believe it or not, I barely watched anime, but I did read the Pokemon manga…. And I didn’t really go online except for Neopets until like 2006, 2007…….

I’m not really sure what I would have done without making stories of some kind. You can look at this and go lmao that’s fucking horrible, IT IS! NO OFFENSE TAKEN but there was a lot of care that went into this and then my writing and everything….

Creativity and storytelling are often the best refuges you could find from things. Drawing, writing, those kinds of things by nature are a very lonely hobby. But sometimes you prefer being lonely than dealing with people around you, sometimes for very good reasons. Sometimes you can’t stand the world around you, so you make another one up, and you get to go on all these journeys you never would otherwise. It’s okay if they’re corny, self-indulgent, illogical messes, especially when they’re for your own entertainment. They get you elsewhere. 

I’m thinking about how much I’ve used my characters to give me a chance to get away from things, then explore myself, then as a sandbox for a lot of concepts. And they’ve given me a better understanding of the world around me. When you have to write a personality that’s not the same as yours, coming from different backgrounds, sometimes you realize your character will likely make decisions you wouldn’t, and you start to understand why people do the things they do, even the bad things.

How your character looks doesn’t make them any more real than another. I’ve seen some very realistically-drawn characters that don’t feel like real people to me, but literally stick figures that do.

I love drawing, but the thing that gets me the most excited is conveying a personality and a story. You’ll look at a drawing for a few minutes, you’ll think about a character later on. A good image helps, but there isn’t much that can be prettied up to make a personality stronger.

We see posts with people laughing at others drawing cartoon characters as random as Bugs Bunny and Pikachu and Kirby and Sonic all together, in comics that are very serious to the artist, and look utterly bizarre to us. Or how many people who can only draw MLP characters roughly make little scenarios with them, or how many fanfics that are completely out of character show up? They’re funny, it’s bizarre, but I have to remind myself that I used to draw Kirbies, because that’s all I could draw, along with stick people. And I made these comics that went on for pages and pages…. they’re tools, that people are familiar with. When you don’t know where to start, you reach for something you recognize, maybe you’re not ready to start from scratch. 

A lot of my guys started out as action figures. Matt’s initial design was light skinned because that was the toy I had to play him as, Madi has grey hair for the same reason.

Point is, I guess, is everyone starts somewhere. You can roll your eyes when you see a really lame character that’s a total knockoff of another, but obviously that person is doing what they can to start. And maybe in time, they’ll redesign things, rewrite origins…. Bad designs and personalities are funny, sure, but don’t be mean to someone. They’re doing the best they can, and maybe they’re doing it for themselves before anyone else. If what they’re doing is making their life better, let them do it. Everybody needs a place to hide in, and a place to stretch out in abstract ways without worrying about people around them.
