Ask me something!   Submit something!   I'm your average mid-20s geeky kid. Everything from Superheroes (DC and Marvel as well as others...), Doctor Who, comic books, and board games.

I love to knit and even have a knitting blog over at ThePrinceAndThePurl.

Also one time he was supposed to write a violin and piano duet, and he wrote the violin part, but he didn’t really feel like writing the piano part, or was too lazy etc. When the concert came up (he played the piano while a fiend played the violin) he set up a blank piece of paper (so people would think he was reading music) and improvised. After the concert he wrote it down so it could be published

okay i’ve reblogged this before but can we just give a shoutout to the orchestra that had to sightread the overture to an audience at the premiere of an opera


REBLOGGING FOR THAT LAST COMMENT

That was fairly standard in that time.  Sight reading was expected much more than it is today.  Being able to read music was just a given for a musician.

    i’ve seen more posts of people being excited for Home than this movie, which made me upset because this movie comes out before Home does (not that i am saying that you shouldn’t praise Home as well). and as for Big Hero 6 (a movie that also comes out after the Book of Life) and the people saying that there is a lack of representation of Asians in media, i feel you. why? because there is a bigger lack of hispanics, and i agree Disney messed up, you be upset. but be happy for Hispanics as well because we finally got an animated movie representing us and our culture. so please go see this movie when it comes out.

    that is all i ask.

    When I saw the trailer for this when I went to see the Lego movie it was so stunning I knew it was a movie I had to see

    Also it looks like it;s by the same person who did El tirge 

    which was a great and fun show 

    ALSO!!! So far the trailers have be CHOCK FULL of allusions and references to different parts of Mexican culture and history!!

    That beautiful lady up there is La Muerte and she’s straight up based off Catrinas which are popular figures and dolls used to represent Dia De Los Muertos.

    NOT ONLY THAT but the weird texture on her skin is sugar! Why sugar? Sugar skulls! They’re a common treat found being sold by vendors and made by other families on Dia De Los Muertos.

    BUT WOAH DON’T STOP THERE Along with having those two things play into her design she also has cempasúchil (marigold to put it simply) flowers in her hat. Why’s that important?  Those are called flor de los muertos, flower of the dead. They’re used to honor the dead and decorate the altars made by loved ones of the deceased.

    And this is just ONE design. All of that thought, care, and attention to detail went into ONE design and that’s only scratching the surface. This isn’t even touching on the adelita twins NOR the town itself.

    Like really, this is turning out to be a film crafted out of pure love and respect for the culture and the medium itself and, like OP, all I ask is that you PLEASE go check out this film when it’s released.

    Because while you may verbally support it, the studio and the industry itself NEEDS to see money tied in with your voice and the voices of everyone else who has been supporting this film.

    And hey! Danny Trejo and Ron Perlman are in it!

    So yeah, GO WATCH THE BOOK OF LIFE.

So I guess this thing I made is officially out in the world now! Or will be in a little while. Anyways - I had the great pleasure of getting to do a variant cover for Bravest Warriors #24 which according to this will be out in September :) Also the incomparable jellydraws did one of the other variants!!

I love this cover.
