sometimes your 13-year old self teach you things. good things.
This was me actually not too long ago.

I started to write a how-to comic about working out but it it turned into a comic about body acceptance.
this is perfect. and this goes for not just guys.
I feel like I have to put an emphasis on “Fake It.” That is exactly how I achieved self-confidence about my body. I faked it so well that I started to believe it, and it’s the best feeling in the world. And people respond well to it! Wear a t-shirt with your swimsuit while you’re swimming and people will think you’re ashamed of it and respond with silent pity. Go shirtless with a smile (even with a fake smile, shaky legs, and a beet-red face) and people will compliment you on it, even though you’re fat!
I think this is my new favourite post on tumblr. It seems to have been made by someone with exactly the same body issues as me and the advice is so simple and not flooded with jargon.
Faking it sounds easy, but it’s definitely the hardest thing that I’ve tried.
So much of everything on this is great
Reblogging for my own self-reminder from time to time…
I love how there are so many different kinds of comics coming out of the woodwork nowadays! Love the message too. =)

What’s supposed to happen
What’s happening when you don’t credit
What you’re making them do
Every artist grow by displaying their work and getting critique. But when their work is spread around without any credit to the artist, AND EVEN MAKES THE OWN ARTIST DELETE IT FROM HIS/HER SITE it lost the purpose and meaning.

Hayao Miyazaki’s advice on how to use transparent watercolors in the booklet of the Ghibli Museum Sketching Set.
Title: My recommendation. Transparent watercolor is good.
“transparent watercolor has a strong habit”, “do not paint stickily and paint after wiping the extra paint and water off”, “paint thinly the bright part”, “had better not use white”, “paint other color after under color has dried”, “let’s mix the color and use it.”
Light the wool which protrudes on a new painting brush.
Anything is fine for a water vessel.
A retractable knife is enough for the pencil sharpener.
One 2B pencil is enough for the pencil.
Divide the palette into seven zones: Bright, Dark, Black, Green 1, Green 2, Blue 2, Blue 1.
Do not use the eraser.
Do not draw a guideline for a picture.
“these painting materials are enough for a 2-week trip and preparations for a movie.”
Found this on Nausicaa.net along with the news that the new Takahata and Miyazaki Ghibli films for next summer are expected be announced this week!

Be sure to “full view” each page because (at least on my computer) the black in some of the pages is just GONE. Anyway, my design final. A comic attempting to address society’s failure of telling young boys (and girls too sometimes) that abuse/violence/bullying is NOT an appropriate way to show affection…
REBLOGGING AGAIN because I figured out what was up with the colors uhghhsdlkf
I remember reading a text post about this on tumblr before, sharing it now that it is in comics form!
