I'm a comic artist w/ a love for excellent stories in the form of movies, TV shows, musicals, manga, and animation.

This is my virtual scrapbook and reblog tumblr. Bits and pieces of the internet and the occasional ramble about stuff I love.

Read more than you write. In expressing the ambition to be a writer, you are committing yourself to the community of other writers. Your originality will mean nothing unless you can understand the originality of others. What we call originality is little more than the fine blending of influences.

Be ruthless in your use of what you’ve seen and what you’ve experienced. Add your imagination, so that where invention ends and reality begins is undetectable.

Be courageous. Nothing human should be far from you.


This reblog brought to you by my current deadline.

Can something in the horror genre be called life-affirming?

That’s the strange question I wrestle with as I watch Hannibal each week and come away with a new-found appreciation for the preciousness of fleeting human existence.

It’s not that I quarrel with the designation…


//Absurdly helpful for people writing royal characters and/or characters who interact with royalty and members of the nobility.

Creators need to stop talking about their work once it’s out. Damn. Let the audience build their own relationship to the work.

Also the notion that you as a creator have the final word on what is actually happening in your work is so naive

once the work is created, it becomes it’s own thing for each person that sees it

you don’t get to define that.

- Sarah Horrocks (X) (on True Detective) 

Interesting alternative to “showing your work”/sharing your process. You need to draw the line somewhere.











That’s actually a theory incorporated into M-theory (string theory)

Sorry, I just used the word theory three times. 

Basically, there is a possibility, if string theory is correct and atoms are actually made up of tiny strings vibrating in 10 dimensions, we could have infinite parallel universes inside each and every quark contained in our body. We’re huge to them, and tiny to the universe WE are contained in. 

How bout that? There could be billions upon trillions of creatures, things, worlds, inside each atom inside us. Infinite universes in one quark. 

Mia your geek is showing.

This is why I study physics.

…whoah. brb, contemplating this forever.

So does that mean that when we die all those billions of universes and creatures die within us?


I knew I am a god

I fucking knew it

holy crap that is like world-ception

Dude what if stories and characters are real living in one of the many universes in the mind of the author. The author just happens to be in touch with them in someway.


This is where our characters live.

these are my legit beliefs.

It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.
