Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

OMFG. THIS. SHOW.

GPOY FOREVER.

What is this?? XD

Aoi Honoh. Watch it. It is so great. :)

Where can I watch this? I need motivation.

So while I wait for commissions (giveaway is still ongoing!), I’m trying to get some progress done on some storyboarding/comicing. 
I’m particularly bad about waffling and being indecisive on my personal projects- especially when it comes to the initial format/size/resolution- . I try to keep in mind any plans to print/distribute it in the future and plan ahead- which means this first step can be the most important and unalterable.  If I don’t even have the basics in place, there’s very little I can do to actually create content- so round and round the merry-go-round of hesitation I ride.
So here we are. I’m finally settling on going for a digital/e-book friendly size format- particularly tablet reading/scrolling since more and more the majority of readers are online/mobile. Trying to read portrait sized manga/comics on my desktop/tablet with all the scrolling, pinching/re-zooming crap is absolutely infuriating and destroys any investment the creator makes in page composition. I care immensely about how to design it so readers can interact and perceive whatever I work on easily and clearly… so here we go: wide format animatic comic.
Even though my absolute dream is a 5x7 printed b/w toned comic. ;_; Maybe someday. If I start building more content and a reader base now I can afford to do it when this project is done.

Hello there!

I’m opening up commissions for a short time- full color chibi or portraits (any shading type) to help fund a trip to AWA (Sept. 26th to 28th) this year! I roughly need $325 to make this happen (badge =~$50-65; hotel room=~ $260). 

GIVEAWAY:

To help thank those who both follow me and also reblog this post, those individuals will be entered into drawing for a free chibi/portrait! ***Entry cut off date: Sept 17th- you’ve got time!***

Entries for the giveaway will be gathered, numbered, and picked at random by a number generator. If I get over 5 commissions, I’ll do another free art for a second lucky winner. Over 10, I’ll pick a third winner! The winner(s) will be selected around Sept 18th. Make sure you have your asks box open so I can contact ya, yeh? :d  

I sincerely appreciate anyone who helps me in any way to reach my goal!

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!

Rebecca is amazing!

Hey, I just found your Dodger Chibi fanart on DeviantArt and thought it was the cutest thing I ever saw!! I was just wondering if you did commissions?
tenninhouse tenninhouse Said:

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!

Right now I’m not taking commissions but when/if I do open some, I’ll try to post here on tumblr and on my DA account with that information.

when you want to draw but youre too stressed to do well on commissions and too guilt laden about the commissions thing to draw personal art so you just become an ouroboros of procrastination and anxiety

yep

Welp, I guess this is a real thing and not just my awful self loathing.

One day, my mother struck up a light conversation with an individual at Lowes- my mother was buying some moulding that was slightly longer than her SUV and it was sticking out the back window a bit and she joked on the irony that she had a truck at home but it was old and had a flat tire, etc. etc. The individual mentioned they were trying to start a used car business with their sibling and asked if my mom was interested in selling it.  My mom agreed to let them come by our house, look at the vehicles (the truck and my late father’s car), and possibly sell them. The individual followed her home to view the vehicles, negotiated a bit and the cars were eventually sold to them the following day (the sibling and their spouse were called over to view the cars as well). The exchange was a little odd (they felt the need to hold group prayer with my mom over the exchange) but it went smoothly. The titles were drawn up, cash was exchanged, and the cars were handed over.

Some time later, this individual shows up on my mother’s door step, rings the doorbell, and inquires about doing odd jobs around the house (for pay). My mom had been thinking about pressure washing our concrete patios (dat Alabama humidity born mold) and took them around back to point out what she wanted.  It had begun raining a bit and the individual began saying very cheesy stuff like “Oh, you shouldn’t be outside in the rain, you’re so sweet you’ll melt.” etc.etc. Really, really badly delivered flattery. My mom is unimpressed and a bit skeeved out.  She tells them she’s changed her mind about it and that she doesn’t have anything available. 

Today in the pouring rain, about 2 weeks after the last exchange, the doorbell rings. Guess who.  The individual greets my mom and mentions they had seen a power saw in our garage when they bought the cars and wanted to know if we were thinking of selling it. Mom tells them no- that we’ve already gotten rid of anything we were going to get rid of and that we have nothing to part with. 

My mom and I are feeling absolutely skeeved out about this person continually showing up unannounced.
