notes: art for serenatechair's lovely beautiful amazing fic deja entendu. EVERYONE GO FORTH AND READ THE FIC (so many feels and giggles!!) AND LOVE ALY A LOT BECAUSE THE FIC IS GREAT AND ALY IS GREAT AND EVERYTHING IS GREAT BASICALLY. i'm so glad i got to make art for this fic, and i know aly might tell you that she was a horrible author to work with but don't believe her because she's actually lovely. ♥

i'm sorry i only made one piece of art. i wanted to make like a moodboard-esque poster kind of thing, which i did, but then i couldn't think of anything more to go with it? sigh. i'm sorry ;; alright, enough whining, NOW LET'S JOLLY ON WITH THE POST. here is the art:

'wardo, why did you stay?' mark asks, quieter now. he wants to know. if their places had been reversed, mark doesn't think he would have stayed.Collapse )

notes: a fanmix for irrelephance's absolutely gorgeous and beautiful and feels-inducing fic, a long way back to the light. everyone go and read it now! there are toasters with a temper, badass mutants, roof gardens, and other fabulous things! i'm so happy i got to make art for this fic, it's so amazing. also irrelephance is the sweetest human and didn't even yell at me for doing everything last minute. thank you so much babe. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

i've never made one for fandomy purposes before, but i really put a lot of thought/love into this, so i hope it does the amazing fic justice. ♥ i tried to use songs that express eduardo's feelings pre-kirkland, everyone's struggles in a society that isn't always so welcoming towards the genetically-divergent, the feelings between mark and eduardo, the things they learn from each other, and just generally the beautiful friendship between everyone in the fic. I COULD GO ON AND RAMBLE ABOUT THE MEANING OF EACH SONG BUT LET'S CRACK ON WITH THE SHOW SHALL WE. here's the fanmix:

the thing about co-op housing, wardo supposes, is that he wouldn't trade a million calm mornings for it.Collapse )

so it's exactly one month till christmas (whaaaat) and it is time for my annual christmas card post.

HERE'S HOW IT'S GONNA GO:

just like last year, i will make all the christmas cards myself because i'm an unemployed university drop-out and i enjoy paper crafts.

yes. so, give me your address (country included, please!) in a comment -- all comments will be screened unless lj screws me over, and you should be able to comment even if you don't have an lj account (hello lj-less tumblr/twitter friends) -- or a pm or an email (venlakatriina@hotmail.com), and you'll get a christmas card.

oh, and IF YOU DON'T CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS BUT STILL WANT A CARD, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I SHALL MAKE IT A HOLIDAY/WINTER CARD INSTEAD. yes.

♥ COMMENT/PM/EMAIL AWAY! ♥

w00t, art time is upon us again.

notes: tsn big bang art for hepaticas's gorgeousamazingbeautiful fic. everyone go and read her fic and give her hugs this second because she is a lovely thing and i'm incredibly glad i got to work with her. thank you, lanie! your emails were fabulous, you're flawless, etc, cuddles upon thee. also thank you ailurish and everyone else who listened to me whine about my art. xx

THIS TIME IT'S GRAPHICS, YO. i know i'm more of a traditional art, where-the-fuck-are-my-pencils kind of girl, but i wanted to try something different this time around. hence photoshoppy things. nothing is super fancy and nowhere near as good as the fic, but i think i at least get a "u tried" gold star. here we go.

maybe mark isn't a planet, or a sun, or a black holeCollapse )

it just started snowing so i figured now would be a good time for an...

EPIC HOLIDAY CARD POST OF DOOM!!!!

OH YES, IT IS CHRISTMAS FEELS TIME. WHICH ALSO MEANS CHRISTMAS CARDS. OR HOLIDAY CARDS IF YOU DON'T CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS. ANYWAY, IT IS TIME FOR CARDS.

just like last year, i will make all the christmas cards myself because i'm an unemployed university drop-out and i enjoy paper crafts.

yes. so, give me your address (country included, please!) in a comment -- all comments will be screened unless lj screws me over, and you should be able to comment even if you don't have an lj account (hello lj-less tumblr friends) -- or a pm or an email (venlakatriina@hotmail.com), and you'll get a christmas card.

it would be cool if you could also say whether you'd prefer a blue or a red one. i know, i know. choices, decisions, choices. so difficult. how will you ever decide. you can also just say "venla, I don't really give a flying reindeer about the colour of the card". that might make me cry but you'll get a card anyway.

and if there are things you'd like on your card (for example, ridiculous amounts of glitter, a quote from a book/song/poem, a possibly awful doodle of something you like, or even a miniature flip-flop), let me know and i'll do my best to make it happen.
oh, and if you don't celebrate christmas, you can still ask for a card and I just won't make it christmasy. it'll just be, i don't know, wintery. :)

um, yes. and you all know i'm depressed and all, but paper crafts are lovely and i love making cards and things, so this is definitely not a chore or anything. so you don't have to worry about my mental health. if anything, i'll be upset if nobody wants a card. which doesn't mean you have to want a card, obviously. not wanting a card is okay, too, duh. just, yeah, don't worry about me.

(and yes, i did copy-paste most of that from last year's post. oops.)

notes: tsn big bang art, for hold_onhope's beautiful fic for what binds us which you should read immediately because it's all kinds of wonderful. and so is its author! i'm so glad i got to work with hold_onhope; she's the best fic challenge partner of all times and also a fantastical friend and a talented writer. ♥

about the art: yay, pencil drawings. which i started drawing on the posting day because i'm smart. i'm also really sick right now (and heavily medicated), so hahahaha that was fun. plus, i must've done something awful to my scanner in a previous life because the fucking thing hates me. anyway, i hope i managed to photoshop most of the scanner abuse away.

thanks again to everyone who put up with my whining! and a huge thank you to hold_onhope for being her generally awesome self and freaking out about big bang with me. all the reindeer hugs to you, love.

i hope you like the art! ♥

the thing about emotion...Collapse )

edit: there are some pencil smudges left that i didn't notice before, but i'm really too sick to do anything about it right now. sorry.

artist's notes: tsn big bang art, for the beautifulgorgeousheartbreaking endless sunshine of the spotless mind au now you're just somebody that i used to know by the incredibly lovely emilys_list. go forth and read it immediately! i'm so glad i got the chance to make art for this gorgeous fic. my art is nowhere near the greatness of the story, but i hope you enjoy it anyway. ♥
heaps of thank yous to na_shao, itsanoffblue, and everyone else who listened to my constant whining and gave me internet hugs and had more faith in my skills than i'll ever have.

also, technology hates me, so i'm afraid you're stuck with scanner-abused ink/watercolour things. i'm sorry about the super boring background and the fact that all the squares are probably differently sized, but my photoshop skills are limited to "hey, i wonder what happens if i click this funny-looking symbol" so, you know, i believe i deserve one of those golden u tried stars and some recognition from this board.

my name is eduardo saverin and i'm here to erase mark zuckerberg.Collapse )
