oh haha, that goblin draw also has a bonus imprint of some kind of horrible girl I drew a while ago when I was frustrated because I couldn’t get anything I drew to look right. That’s cool, I’m going to leave that there.
When I was in my senior year one of my drawing classes had us do this horrible animation project where each frame was drawn on a big sheet of paper in charcoal, then photographed and erased. it was kind of a train wreck for various reasons but I remember everybody trying to erase the weird temporal trails left behind every moving element and the professor walking around saying “You can’t get rid of it. Just leave it there. You have to embrace the ghosts.” So whenever I find something like that I think about Embracing the Ghost. It’s a good set of words I think.
I dreamed that Twilight was a story about a fat middle-aged vampire who repeatedly kidnapped a teenage girl and a morally disgusted alien who kept taking her back home in his spaceship
I was pretty into it actually, I’d watch that.
Whenever it gets close to mother’s day I always think of the professor of my photography class, who had a strong Italian accent that resulted in her consistently dropping esses from certain plural or possessive English words. The final assignment for the class involved having a book printed of photographs we had taken, and the company we used to print them was affiliated with some greeting card company, which meant that they tended to get overwhelmed when Sentiment Holidays approached. Placing your order too close to mother’s day was pretty much a guarantee that you would fail to get it in time for the deadline, and likewise fail the class. Mother’s day was spoken of the way you’d talk about Ragnarok, and with the same tone and inflection, with just a hint of English-language failure.
"Get your orders in soon," the professor would remind us, daily, as the end of the semester approached. "Don’t forget. Mother Day is coming.”
