TIL baby puffins are called Pufflings and are cute as fuck.
juvenile (teenage) puffins are even worse. they are like little post punk seabirds. they are all grey all the time and wear lots of heavy eye makeup
Thoughtful underwear with hidden powers. For every pair purchased you fund 7 pads to a girl in need.
OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY
AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:
For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.
AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:
After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.
THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM
I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS
LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME
Here’s the penciling/inking process of the cover!
First, I can never draw the same thing well twice, and I plan better small, so I take that little thumbnail you saw earlier and I blow it up to the size I want to draw it at, and tape it to the board, and lightbox the image.
I do this in chunks instead penciling it all and inking it all…I find I can go way more complex that way, and it’s cleaner, and it gives me less of a headache because I can concentrate on one thing at a time.
This was a tough image to draw, mostly because I was drawing a bunch of famous buildings and it’s always hard to figure out how to get to that level of it being recognizable, without going overboard.
And in this particular drawing, I wanted the buildings to seem like depictions and to feel very flat. These days that’s really hard for me to do, because I’ve gone so many years trying to train myself not to do that.
But here, it’s supposed to be an illustration within an illustration…the buildings are like the sun’s rays, but more a depiction of the sun’s rays, much like either art deco or a really religious painting.
I’m learning that it’s a good way to go, to draw lots of little windows by just drawing stripes one way, and then going over it with a white gel pen the other way. This time I was crunched for time, so I did the white stripes digitally.
My favourite moment in the series.
#it’s just so awesome to see a young woman surrounded by men who are earnestly interested in her opinion #esp. on *ships* #do you know how often i see women get shut down when they try to join in discussions on cars #but they’re all like #”nah this girl knows her shit” #”let’s talk to her about it” #i mean they SHUT DOWN A GUY ASKING HER TO DANCE BECAUSE SHE’S *TALKING* (via dropkicks)

Dang it, Jim. I’m an astronomer, not a doctor! I mean, I am a doctor, but I’m not that kind of doctor. I have a doctorate, it’s not the same thing. You can’t help people with a doctorate. You just sit there and you’re useless!
