Here’s a doodle especially for the HearthStone fans and/or linguists out there.
I had this conversation with Mecha-Jaraxxus today:
It cracks me up that he is ALWAYS YELLING! EVEN WHEN SAYING SOMETHING POLITE!
Every time there’s something fun with language happening my linguist brain is like: “That’s not normal in conversation, I wonder what’s happening, let’s write a 20 page paper on it!”
I couldn’t figure out if this particular “THANK YOU” was the person being sassy or friendly, but it made me think that Jaraxxus was repeating what I was saying like a silly parrot robot demon. Either way, I LOVE IT!
I’ve recently discovered BuzzFeed’s Ladylike channel on YouTube and now watch a lot of episodes in my breaks between job hunting.
I really like that all kinds of subjects are discussed on the channel – from periods and pesto to fashion and friendships. (Alliteration, yum).
Yesterday I watched the ladies make fan art of fans who had made them fan art. So I decided to make some fan art based on that episode:
I also really like all of the makeup/ beauty routine videos even though I rarely wear makeup myself and don’t really have a routine for what I do when I get up in the morning (is peeing and porridge a routine? Ok, I’ll stop with the alliteration). But the videos are all very fun and well-made so I gobble it all up. Also, I think part of the appeal for me is to see people (who happen to be women my age) have fun at their jobs – while still working hard, obviously.
Btw, Kristin wasn’t in the fan art episode, so I added her based on her look from the pesto competition with Jen. That’s why she looks a bit more serious, maybe 😀
These were drawn by hand and then edited in Illustrator. Now back to watching videos- I mean looking for jobs like a real adult lady!
I drew Snape and Umbridge while listening to the 5th Harry Potter book:
But Umbridge is THE WORST so I’ll make her small.
And I didn’t do any digital editing on her, ’cause boo Umbridge.
I’m already on book 6, but am almost to concentrated and excited/scared to doodle while listening, because I know what’s coming and I’m not in a hurry for the horror 😨
We also watched the first two Harry Potter movies this week so that’s confusing and fun. And after listening to the books, I catch myself saying “that’s not like the book, noooo!” literally every 5 minutes. But still enjoying the movie very much!
I still haven’t watched the “new” Star Wars movies (VII and onwards) – but I’ve been re-watching the old ones recently and they’re fantastic and very doodle-inspiring. I need to get to the new ones soon.
I’ve started binge listening to the Harry Potter (audio) books – wow!
I read The Philosopher’s Stone in Danish when I was about 11 (many years ago), and was about the same age as Harry as I read the next number of books, too. It’s simply amazing hearing the stories and spending time with the characters again.
