Freelance illustrator - Production/Game artist - Author of Basement Dwellers

Hi everybody, feels like I’ve been away forever! I’m currently working on a mobile game and some backgrounds for a short film so I’m gonna be a little scarce for a little while (which also unfortunately means a mini-hiatus for Basement Dwellers)— but in the meantime, here’s some work I did for Allstate’s LGBT campaign while working at Blacklist. I did most of the design work and was brought on to help with cleanup animation! 

Can’t wait to show you guys all the new stuff I’ve been doing! Aaaaagh

For all the shit we talk about the culture of fandom, shipping, and all the recurring problems that may emerge from it, I just want to make it clear that I think it’s the coolest thing to come out of the internet for young (and not young!) people.

On shipping specifically, there’s no feeling quite like figuratively meeting someone else’s eyes across the room [internet] and realizing “I want those characters to fuck. YOU WANT THOSE CHARACTERS TO FUCK TOO? HIGH FIVE LET’S BOND OVER THIS.”

Fandom can be wonderfully inclusive and also allows people to forge relationships on similar interests alone, which is such a brand new thing and such a great way to make friends.

I’m so grateful for the relationships I have that, without the internet, would just never have fucking happened.

Shit, guys, Kumail Nanjiani is one of the funniest people in the world. I love this man. Everything he’s on, he’s hysterical in: his standup, Burning Love (WHY HAS NOBODY ELSE SEEN BURNING LOVE), Silicon Valley, Veep, Adventure Time, Nerdist podcasts, fuckin everything.
If you ever want to just hear him talk forever (and why wouldn’t you), he runs a few podcasts. The Indoor Kids, co-run with his lovely and also hilarious wife Emily V. Gordon, is about gaming and has a shitton of great guests. He just recently started another one called The X-Files Files, which I adore because it deconstructs X-Files episodes in a really thoughtful and loving way. It’s also a great viewer’s guide if you’ve never watched X-Files before. GO LISTEN GO GO GO GO

Lean all on the square That’s a fuckin’ rhombus
A few weeks after my sister started talking about Chance the Rapper, I searched his stuff on YouTube to find this heart-wrenchingly lovely video of him singing the Arthur theme. I went on to grab his album to see what she was hyping up and by god, she was so on point. 
Half of Acid Rap sounds like someone rapping over the Hey Arnold soundtrack which, musically, is the absolute best thing I can imagine. I’ve been listening to this song almost every day for the past two weeks, I just think it’s so beautiful. Jazz, gospel and rap make such a good combination.
Also Everything’s Good makes me tear up late at night.
