Completed November 3rd, 2015
Recently as I've started utilizing a delicate layering process where I start with very light cross-hatching strokes using light 2H or 4H leads - loaded into my 0.3mm mechanical pencil (in the photo above you can see how smudged it is... it's the yellow one - It's really my favorite illustration tool); I have discovered I need a bright light source I can adjust the placement of. You'll note the LED light - on an adjustable neck - clipped to my clipboard. It is a Mighty Bright light - made right here in Santa Barbara, CA by Gold Crest, LLC. I always try to buy local if I can! :D It is a great tool that's a real game-changer as I focus on deeper layers of detail.
I used the "negative space" illustration style that is more typical of my pen & ink illustrations - I learned from one of my many illustration instructors in my youth - the amazing Linda Thorne - that what ISN'T on the canvas is often as important and can define the composition as the strokes that ARE present. This has had a profound affect on my illustration style through the years.

Meet Kirby Jenner, Kendall Jenner's 'Secret' Twin Brother!
Just when you thought you've met everyone in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, it turns out that 20-year-old Kendall Jenner has had a 'secret twin brother' this entire time! (Or well, sort of. If there's such a thing as being related by spoof accounts and some epic Photoshop. But anyway. This is hilarious.) Meet Kirby Jenner, Kendall's wild and crazy mustached partner-in-crime!!! And just like the rest of his family, he's become something of an overnight social media star! His Instagram account (@kirbyjenner) has over 300,000 followers and features some of the twins' most memorable (and yet strangely forgotten) photoshoots. Like, did you know Kirby was in Kendall's most famous Instagram photo this entire time? He even brought his own hair extensions! And he and his twin sister seriously love goofing off with their little sis, Kylie. Behave, children, behave! The two share everything together - including their ad campaigns. No one gets between the twins and their Calvins. (Except maybe Subway sandwiches. Kirby was hungry!) Aren't their matching outfits downright adorable? They've even got the same cornrows! And when Kendall's rocking Fashion Week, you can bet he's front row center with the rest of the family. What a supportive brother. Have you heard of Kirby before? Is he your new favorite Kardashian-Jenner family member? Let me know in the comments below, and for more laughs, follow my Memes for Millennials collection.
Why Do Stereotypes Hurt So Much?
It's not just rude... it's bad for our communities. If you're not familiar with the "fake geek girl" accusation, that's probably a good thing. It doesn't happen all the time, but there are some people in the geek community (an over-generalization of gamers, comic book lovers, and sci-fi readers) that feel the need to act as gatekeepers. And while there's nothing wrong with defending the things you love from people who only wish harm on your community, the practices currently in place end up deterring new fans, which keeps the fandom from growing. Not only that, but it makes it a very hostile place to be, even for those who have been fans for a long time. Instead of coming together to get excited about what we all love, fan events have become gated communities more concerned with outing the 'fakes' than with the media that brought us together in the first place. And the 'fakes' being targeted are predominantly- though not exclusively- women. What gives? The above is, of course, satire. The truth is that geek culture has become extremely accessible in recent years. There are lots of new comics fans thanks to the hugely popular Marvel and DC franchises. Thanks to Cartoon Network's lineup, there are anime fans left and right. Steam is making it easier (and cheaper) for new fans to become dedicated gamers. Geek is no longer an insult, it's an identity that people are proud of. And why should we be ashamed of our passions? They're a big part of our lives. They're how we have fun. They're how we relate to the world. So why is there a culture built around punishing new fans? I've seen lots of reasons tossed around. But I'm not really sure what the answer is. I've been told that 'fake geek girls' are only interested in sex, that they're only calling themselves geeks because it's trendy, that they're invading male-only spaces to cause trouble and not because they actually care about the medium. Via Tara Tiger Brown, Reddit, Joe Peacock. Sure, there are probably lots of 'booth babes' at conventions who care more about doing their job than showing off how much they know about geek culture, if anything. Maybe there have been some trouble-makers at conventions. None that I've ever been to, but I wouldn't say it's not a possibility. But isn't that what convention codes of conduct are for? Protecting fans- all fans- from misbehavior? It seems unreasonable to assume that someone has bad intentions based on their gender presentation or their appearance. When it comes to bullying or toxic behavior, it sounds like being exclusionary based on the way someone looks is generally agreed upon as unfair and cruel. So why is this an accepted practice when a new fan is present? Or when a person is expressing their fannishness in a way that's different? The truth is, we all miss out as a result. We were all new once. I wasn't born with an encyclopedic knowledge of knowledge of Marvel comics or fandom history. That's all stuff that I learned. Because it was interesting, because it was fun, and because I wanted to hang out with the fans who invited me into their spaces and made me feel welcome. What is so threatening about new fans that makes us so possessive? Why wouldn't we take advantage of their new-found excitement, instead of shunning their enthusiasm? @RobertMarsh @CarmenMRey @AimeeH @DanRodriguez @ButterflyBlu @melifluosmelodi @DonovanMoore @InPlainSight @baileykayleen @LizArnone @VinMcCarthy @WayneWinquist @MattK95 @ChosenKnight @RaquelArredondo @BeannachtOraibh @chris98vamg @BryanVincent @BiblioLady @purplem00n23 @dustinparson I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this subject! I know it can be difficult to have these discussions and I'm honestly humbled by the responses I've gotten here.
What Was Your First Fandom?
There's nothing like your first. Vingle is awesome because it feels like no matter how obscure my fandom is, there's always someone else here who's into it! So let's take a trip down nostalgia lane and find out how it all began... The Superwholock fandom Did you dive headfirst into the wonderful wild world of Supernatural, Doctor Who, or Sherlock? I was away from fandom for a while, but some amazing Sherlock fic brought me back in. And you all know how that went! Now it's all fanfiction all the time here! Anime fandom I know there are a lot of you out there! The first fic I ever read was anime (and trust me, you don't want to know about the fic that I *wrote*. It was a monstrosity). Lord of the Rings fandom If you speak Elvish, you have my respect. The Marvel/DC fandom Superhero movies seem like they're here to stay. Whether it was Marvel or DC, Daredevil or the Dark Knight, you're gonna have a lot of fun in the coming years! And of course I'll be right there with you. Star Wars fandom I'm so happy for you all. I know Sherlockians have been called the fandom that waited... but you all really waited, didn't you? The Fandom that Lives Harry Potter is definitely a global fandom, and we haven't seen the likes of it before or since. The first fandom Star Trek inspired fandom as we know it today. The fic, the cons, the culture... to use an inappropriate quote "I was alone and I owe you so much". WAS THERE A FANDOM I MISSED??? If so please don't think I love you any less! In fact I probably want to know all about it. Share your first fandom experience!!! Were you a livejournaler in the days of Cassie Clare? Did you get sucked into Tumblr during Mishagate? Or were you one of the old school fans subscribing to zines in the mail? Or hey, is Vingle the first place you've let yourself fan the freak out? That would be awesome too. Let's get excited about our first fandoms!!!
