*GASP*
Ok, you know my last blog?
The one about how I was working so hard, and oh boy, I was finally going to see Les Miserables?
Well, both things continued true. I've been working at a prodigious rate, pictures every day, multiple comics every week! Just not here!
And I saw the movie! I loved the movie! I laughed, I cried, IT CHANGED MY LIFE.

...That's not hyperbole.

See, I have a Tumblr. I didn't use it much before this year, it was basically a message center for myself and a few friends. But after the movie I felt the need to draw some silly SILLY fanart to offset the horrible overwhelming waves of confused elated grief I was dealing with, because art is therapy, right? So I drew a couple silly little things.
And I tagged them, for my own archiving purposes.

Did you know! There is a Les Mis fandom? And was, before the movie?
Did you know! They were apparently desperate for fan artists?
I DID NOT KNOW THESE THINGS. Not until my notes went from ones to dozens to a hundred in a day, and my follower count likewise. I started getting MESSAGES. I drew a couple more things.
And the crowd, as the scrolls say, went wild. My follower count SPIKED, I looked at a few blogs, and I was sunk. Because let me tell you: there is a Les Mis fandom, and they are the funniest, smartest, sweetest fandom I could have hoped to be utterly usurped by.  Artists! Historians! *Intense nerdery * of all sorts, generally set to music! There's nothing in that I don't love. There's also an ENORMOUS amount of back-and-forth conversation over the fanwork which, let's face it, I do not and probably never will get on my own storystuff. Since I'd been feeling a bit stalled on my art for a while, I thought "OK, I'll just hang out here and play a couple weeks".

Hahahaha. *maniacal twitch* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *gasp*
So, uh, I'm still over there. LM fandom has a serious chunk of my heart and time. BUT it's given me back a lot of art feedback and practice --if nothing else, suddenly I'm comfortable drawing guys!--and I think I'm going to start trying some...things, over here. Because if no one here cares about guys in waistcoats (I have to remind myself: NO ONE CARES, C. THAT IS NOT THE OBSESSION OF THE WHOLE WORLD) no one over there cares about soft SF. *whispers * they mostly don't even know this place exists. So probably some character sketches for a week or two, and then..we'll see!

Because, euphoric fandom romance or no, I have MISSED you, dA. So quite! So calm! So...army green! So what else is new by you?
  • Mood: Joy
  • Listening to: show tunes
  • Reading: Les Miserables, actually
  • Playing: NO TIME FOR GAMES ALL ART
  • Eating: chicken enchiladas
  • Drinking: three kinds of tea

Well, the National Guard apparently.

And now I've made myself sad. BRB crying forever. Darn it, Les Mis!
