Fix it! Do it! Accidentally unscrew it! It’s time to fix things with Soos!
I can’t get enough of the terrible after effects
It took me a good while to realize I was not watching youtube poop, and that’s just perfect.
God this really is made for a very specific generation isn’t it…. the fucking Daft Punk reference, the shitty 90s airbrush artwork with pyramids and mystical bullshit, the compression green screen artifacts… it was worth waiting for it to come out in english and not russian
Soos is so perfect
Give me all the bacon and eggs you have
afrofabulous asked: Do you think that 28 is too old to try to pursue a career in art on your own terms? I wanted to be a 3D animator for as long as I can remember, but when I got to college I realized that going to college for it wasn't for me. The school and the environment was horrible and I was completely uninspired to continue animation. I went to school for fashion illustration after that and I although my teachers thought my art was truly beautiful, I didn't get to finish because I started a family.
(cont.) I became inspired again recently and I have been drawing and sketching everyday (for the past two years) as well as learning animation on my own. I am heavily influenced by your webcomic, but I just wanted to know if it was too late to pursue my dream without school and by myself at 28?
I started TJ and Amal at 31, with a weak art education and zero experience in comics, so you can probably guess where I stand on the matter!
I wish our culture didn’t place such heavy emphasis on “making it” in your teens and twenties; that the (justifiable!) attention paid to prodigies wouldn’t set “prodigy” as the norm. This kind of BS does everyone a disservice.
If you have a dream and the ability to pursue it, there’s no reason to sit it out just because “everyone makes it by 25.” Because everyone DOESN’T make it by 25. Some do, some don’t, whatever.
Sometimes when I get discouraged about this, it helps to remember an anecdote I read a few years ago—
A retiree mentions to her friend that she’s considering going back to college and finishing her degree.
"What, at 65?" says her friend, "You’ll be at least 40 years older than everyone else in class!"
To which the lady replies, “oh, so you think I should wait till I’m 70?”
There’s no going backwards. Good luck!
Just a reminder that I have a crazy webcomic about alien mermaids and robots. Coming out of hiatus very soon. You can read the full comic here http://tapastic.com/episode/15316

sneakyflute asked: (1/2)my birthday and college grad are coming up, and my fam keeps asking me what to get me. if i don't tell them anything, they'll spend a lot of money on stuff that mostly just takes up space (like, one year my mom gave me a book about how to take care of hedgehogs but i dont have a hedgehog). i figure they're looking to spend ~$100. anyway, i like a lot of things on your blog and was wondering some your makeup essentials/perfumes/'must haves'/books/etc are? or what you'd do with an extra $100?
With $100, I would ask for the Make Up For Ever 12 Flash Color Case. Just that ‘cause that’s all you could get. To me it is essential to my makeupping more than anything else. This is not an everyday practical whatever but hey man it’s a present it doesn’t have to be wholly practical.
I am not feeling particularly attached to any clothing or accessory or anything else in that price range bc I am only buying and lemming for investment pieces ‘cause I have everything I could want, materialistically at this point. Have them buy you the new NYX lipstick range and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance on DVD! That would be a good lil’ girlmonster kit.

MOST IMPORTANT UGLY
April 25, 2014 July 25, 2014 American Two Shot
135 Grand street, NYC Opening Reception: April 25th, 6:00-9:00pm
Hello friends and friendly strangers –
If you know me at all, you know I live and breathe both makeup and memories – the stories that lipstick can tell you and the people who wear them help me wake up in the morning. Call it shallow or call it survival. I’d consider it more the latter and it’s the heart of Most Important Ugly.
What exactly should you expect? In essence,
it’s a series of 13 portraits that negotiate the
sitter’s stories of alienation and presentation,
memories and disremembering. In order to sit
for their photo to be taken, I asked each muse
a series of questions about shame, safety,
power, family and beauty. This series of
questions is called “Therapy Sessions in Sephora,” a reference to the place where I came up with the questions and the place where the ideas for this project began to unfold.
This project discusses anxiety and queer marginalization, revealing the monsters that are hidden inside of us when we are taught what we are is not enough, or is too much, or that it shouldn’t exist at all. It is a presentation of the resistance of marginalized people and how makeup can bring out the best in you: it’s just that the best is not always what is expected, or the most beautiful, or the most kind. Most Important Ugly tells the story of Monster Culture and the everyday heroes that it breeds. The heroes are my friends in the queer community, my readers, our friends. Nonbinary beauties, trans friends, queer and questioning people we know and love all came together to sit for this project and it is their stories that we have the honor to share in these photographs. Gertrude Stein once wrote: “Give me new face new faces new faces I have seen the old ones.” This is our response to this idea of a beauty culture where we do not belong.
There are 13 portraits in the installation. There will also be a Limited Edition zine (Edition of 100 copies) detailing our process and monster culture, and it will include the original questions asked of each sitter. That way, you can learn what your Most Important Ugly is, too.
