Small fish, big pond, but it's always good to be shiny.

Hahaha oh look, my life.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone || 2001

tomhiddles:

The first thing Snape asks Harry is “Potter! What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?” According to Victorian Flower Language, asphodel is a type of lily meaning ‘My regrets follow you to the grave’ and wormwood means ‘absence’ and also typically symbolized bitter sorrow. If you combined that, it meant ‘I bitterly regret Lily’s death.’

Finals need to be over so I can be a less obnoxious human being again.

I’m very excited to finally be able to share one of the illustrations I’ve been working on. A few months ago I was contacted by Chris Baty (of NaNoWriMo fame) to illustrate a poster centered around encouraging people to write! I had a lot of fun with this painting; it’s always nice when your freelance work allows you to do something completely different from your day job, and this poster did just that for me. If you’re interested in buying this poster (or perhaps another poster in Chris’ shop), you can find a large version here and a small version here. 
Also, this week has been quite the adventure for me, as I’ve been offered a position as a visual development artist at Sony Pictures Animation on “Cloudy 2”! It’s only been one week, and already I’ve learned so much from being surrounded by the incredible talent there!
