My lovely followers, please follow this blog immediately!
i actually like being up early i just don’t like getting up early
YOU PUT THIS IN WORDS
Science is art. Art is science. They work hand in hand, they basically are one thing if you think about it.
It always really bothers me when I hear and see people say that I gave up on art, or anyone who chose science or major that is wanted by society, over art. That may be true to some degree, but again, not the whole degree. There are people out there who just passionately love art and science equally, I for one do.
When people spat at me for saying I gave up on art or I chose the easy road, they do not understand how long I struggled to think about what I wanted to do with my life. My whole senior and junior year in highschool, I stayed up late at night, crying my eyes out because I did not know what I wanted to pursue or which one I should pursue: art or science. I love them so much, they are both my oxygen, my life support, my foundation in life. I know I could easily double major, but my parents do not allow it. If that was an option, then I wouldn’t be writing this confession to begin with. In the end, I chose science because I realized that I do not need a degree to call myself an artist. That could be said the same the other way around, you don’t need a degree to call yourself a scientist too. (The degree is basically the only way for society to recognize/accept you has a true scientist/artist anyway…)
Another point I would like to touch upon is that some people say that scientist can and never will be able to appreciate the beauty of art/nature the same was as an artist. Again, this may be true, but in my opinion, I think this is utter bullcrap. I am pretty sure the scientists that we all study in our textbooks did not do life threatening research half-heartedly (Marie Curie and Rosalind Franklin being examples of this.) I may not know them personally, but again, science is art and they saw the beauty in science, wanting to discover its mysteries, the art of life itself. Maybe artists and scientists view beauty differently, but that does not mean scientists will never understand beauty. This mostly bothers me because someone who I thought understood my struggle deciding what I wanted to do in life, outright said that I would never understand art because I chose the science route. This was a double hit to me, insulting my love for both science and art. Again, I think society is the one that puts these pressures and harsh opinions on these two subjects, creating misunderstandings.
How I mostly cope with this is that I incorporate science theories, thoughts, concepts, discoveries into my artwork. In life, science and art work together in harmony and I hope to show that through my artwork. I mean, why is the golden ratio appealing to the eye? Why is the sunflower mathematically perfect?
Again, this is just an opinion and I don’t expect people to agree with me all the time, I just hope it brings a little insight or understanding to whomever reads this. Take my opinion (or not) anyway you want. I love art and science wholeheartedly.

Hey all you artists, lemme tell you about this magical place I love so much. It’s called Smack Jeeves and it’s an amazing comic hosting site.
I’m a fucking promo-ing idiot but I’m trying to be helpful to you awesome comic artists.
Look at the top image. Nice and clean layout, right? Everything’s pretty easy to find and the staff are very helpful and quick. It’s all self-explanatory. Now let’s look at the place where I hang out the most: my favorites!
As soon as a comic updates, it shoots right up to the first slot of my favorites, letting me know that it was updated the most recently out of all the rest my favorites. (DrunkDuck and MangaMagazine don’t have that feature!) Now let’s click on a comic. I’ll choose one that isn’t that well-known (because honestly, if I’m going to choose one, why indirectly promo a comic that already has hundreds of fans?)
Once again, everything is clear and clean! You can see the comic’s description, statistics, latest comics, authors, news, comic classification, latest comments, and even comics similar to this comic. You can choose to read from the very beginning or from the latest. Pretty nifty, huh? If we hover over the latest comics, we can even tell what date they updated. (This function really helps whenever I’m away from the computer for a few days so I can tell how far I need to go back to catch up.)
If you click on the author’s avatar under the Authors slot, then you’ll be directed to their profile page. There, you can see if they have other comics you’d be interested in.
On to the comic!
I clicked the banner on the comic’s profile page so I was sent straight to the comic’s home. There are a lot of themes to choose from (like Tumblr) and you can edit your own comic’s themes as long as you have a basic understanding of HTML. It’s all user-friendly.
Now look at the side bar. LOOK AT IT. Unlike DrunkDuck and MangaMagazine, you can add PAGES! The News/First/Latest/Archive pages are there by default, but the author added the About page on her own. I’ve seen other authors add character cast pages, links to their other comics/DeviantART/Tumblr, etc. You can add as many as you want (I think)!
Now here are the forums. I don’t go around the forums much. (I’ve repeatedly been told that the people here tend to ignore you unless you have 3+ years of “forum experience.”) I do stick around this helpful little section. People are consistently looking for co-authors and this place is a goldmine if you’re looking for writers (not as much for illustrators but what can ya do). There are also sections to get your comic reviewed, spotlighted, or promoted.
Maybe you found this helpful. Maybe you didn’t.
Maybe you just want me to go the fuck away already.Either way, I hope you at least consider bringing your comic here before going anywhere else. I love comics and it would be awesome if Smack Jeeves got more cool comics.

Remember that episode of Bananas in Pyjamas where they had to walk around naked because someone stole their pyjamas off the clothesline?
So then they decided to make clothes out of their curtains
And that bitch Lulu laughed at them?
lulu was the rudest bitch i swear
fuck all this “be a role model” bullshit placed on celebrities. it’s not their job to raise your nasty ass kids.
My AP euro teacher wouldn’t let our class watch Les Mis so we barricaded the door and screamed “VIVE LA REVOLUCIÓN” when he tried to get in.
that is the face of a man who is 24601% done
- Avengers (that includes any of the individual characters movies)
- Star Trek
- Star Wars
- And pretty much anything that’s action or targeted to guys
A guy friend of mine today said it was weird that my friend had all the X-Men movies because she was a girl. Needless to say we almost threw him out of the car. So I would like to prove to him that just because we have vagina’s that doesn’t impair us from enjoying an action film.
Women of tumblr please back me up.
For those who requested it, the single series prints of each show are now available in my Society6 shop!
Each print is sized to be the same height and width so you can have as many or as few stacked or lined up as you wish.
In art class my friend rolled himself in bubble wrap and stayed like that the whole day. When he sat down in our math class the teacher told him to take it off and he didn’t want to so he said “long live the king” and rolled out the door and down the hallway. And all you could hear was the faint popping of the bubblewrap as he rolled away. My teacher never went after him.
your bra strap is showing please hide it because it is suggestive. also your boobs are producing lumps in your shirt please hide them. your butt is in the same situation please get rid of it. also your legs. your arms. your face.
I can see your feet and it’s very distracting and slightly arousing.
