Commission for ourfaeriesarediffering of swapcat’s lovely dinguses!

My friends are absolute monsters. Please fullview this and see how disgustingly cute it is.
(Commander Akela, taking a break from Important Commanderly duties, and apparently in need of little more than a frilly pink apron. Featuring Sen, everyone’s favourite one-horned pane.)

Once more, Jeff dropkicks an open sportsgoal. A horse rears up. An eagle shrieks. A muscle car sheds a tear.  An art is emblazoned upon the cosmos, imploring all to gaze. Behold.
"I am thinking you will soon see why no others are being foolish enough to call my baking skills into question. You will be humbled, yes, but ah! I am merciful in making defeat the finest thing you are tasting for months."

A commission of Aria for Sophie!! 

Thank you for your patience!

Look at this cute nerd! I can never have enough art of Aria. I tried once, but when the results of the experiments came in, it revealed that in fact, what was required was more Aria. Thank you for the lovely picture! :)

Would we accept “if you don’t want to get shot, just do what the EPA regulator tells you”? Would we yield to “if you don’t want your kid tased, do what the Deputy Superintendent of Education tells you”? Would we accept “if you don’t want to get tear gassed, just do what your Congressman tells you?” No. Our culture of individualism and liberty would not permit it. Yet somehow, through generations of law-and-order rhetoric and near-deification of law enforcement, we have convinced ourselves that cops are different, and that it is perfectly acceptable for them to be able to order us about, at their discretion, on pain of violence.

It’s not acceptable. It is servile and grotesque.

Sunil Dutta Tells It Like It Is About American Policing | Popehat (via brutereason)

http://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2014/08/19/im-a-cop-if-you-dont-want-to-get-hurt-dont-challenge-me/

"Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me. Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?”

I think it’s important to note another of Sunil Dutta’s articles.

swapcats:

So! I finished writing my books. All three of ‘em. It’s been a huge undertaking and I’ve put as much time as I have love into them. I’m feeling all kinds of things right now, but that’s not what I want to talk about.

I want to take a moment to thank all the people who’ve supported me along the way. Who’ve listened to me blab about the characters endlessly, who’ve read the books and helped me figure out what does and doesn’t work. The people who’ve shared their headcanons with me and drawn me art, the people who’ve pointed out typos and just given me so much encouragement.

I honestly wouldn’t have got this far without all of you, and it certainly wouldn’t be a story this dear to my heart.

So in no particular order, all my thanks to: skepticarcher, ourfaeriesarediffering, dem-hips, qthorn, tchbee, tentacle, fluffymurellow, fmorgana, sturmschwinge, sassygaykorra, paschblue, sakuraaas, gryfeathr, zellk, lionsenpai, Grace, and I really, really feel like I’m forgetting people because I’m exhausted from writing and also starving, but I really appreciate you all! 

Go. Consume the foods. Feast in celebration of your achievement! Sound the great horn of buch-duniad and let all give a mighty cheer!

Why’s it called assassin’s creed rogue if he just looks like all the other ones anyway? Fooling nobody, Ubi.

Ladies for swapcats! =v=

Sir Ightham, out of her armour for once, along with Rowan, everyone’s favourite tiny necromancer and friendly neighbourhood narrator (who never seems to change her clothes).  

Look at these nerds. Have I mentioned recently that Sam writes totally cool books and 9/10ths as cool fic sometimes? They’d have parity, but that’d require someone else to write someone as cool as Sen or Akela or Rowan, and as of yet, it’s yet to occur. Anyway, take a gander at all the cool stuff on her blog and improve your day and/or 1am.

I do take NSFW commissions as well so if that interests you, please check out my NSFW art blog.  

I will gladly draw any and all characters (e.g. monster, anthro, mecha, etc.), but please provide ample reference by way of images or detailed description if necessary.  Backgrounds and scenery may be added for additional charge.

If you wish to commission me, my email as well as my paypal are queuethorn@gmail.com.  Payment must be received in full before I start the piece, but please do not send payment until I’ve sent you a confirmation email.

Thank you so much for your interest and as always, reblogs are greatly appreciated!

Reblogging because everyone should know about Jeff’s arts and give him money.

Commission for Serene! 

I wear what I like.
Because whilst most art I’ve got of Lavender has had her in her purple tunic, her actual taste in the book is considerably wider, and I liked the idea of her in something yellow for a change. :)
Thank you to Skeptic once again for making something incredibly pretty for me!
