Insomnia Nails - Demonic Gradient
While I had insomnia, I did sloppy nail art using Essi’s Licorice and some clear polish, two paintbrushes and about five minutes for each hand. You have to work fast and be slightly ambidextrous, but I like the effect. 

K beats me at the nail game.
Hands down.
Hands.

Down.

Jiji was playing with a dustbunny he dug out from under the heater. This was (the head of) something in it. D’: #NOPE

Right before I moved away from Alaska, I did a lot of Stupid Teenager Stuff that I only very mildly regret. Part of that was hanging out with people and doing copious amounts of various drugs (and no, I am 0% ashamed of this). 

During this time, my friends and I decided to go to an Ozzy Osbourne concert. Four of us — three girls and one dude, named Ben, who was driving — carpooled to the venue to meet up with mutual friends.

Ben and Jasmine were in the front seat of Ben’s car. Autumn (Jasmine’s sister) and I were in the back seat of Ben’s car. All four of us were very high — Jasmine and Ben on large amounts of cocaine, Autumn and I on a mix of weed and vicodin.

So generally, Autumn and I were very chill, sitting in the cushy, cozy backseat of Ben’s car, whereas Ben and Jasmine were a little more than amped and anticipating a rather public drug deal. 

We pulled up to the venue and smoked a joint, then got our jackets on and our tickets ready. Ben turned around to look into the backseat at Autumn and I. 

"Okay, the guy with the coke is gonna be here in a minute, he knows my car. You two have to get out," Ben said. 

"Cool," I said. "We’ll go into the concert and meet you there."

"Okay," said Ben.

"Okay," said Autumn.

"Okay," said Ben again.

There was a pause.

GET OUT!” Ben screamed in a coke-induced rage. 

"Ben, we—," I started.

"GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE CAR! WHAT THE FUCK ARE WAITING FOR! GET OUT!

Ben…" I tried to explain above his tantrum.

"NO! GET THE FUCK OUT NOW! I FUCKING MEAN IT!!! GET OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT!"Ben screamed at the top of his lungs. Autumn and I stared at him and back at each other in horror.

I reached out, putting my hand on Ben’s shoulder in front of me.

"Ben," I explained slowly, "Your car is a two-door. We can’t get out until you do.”

Kids, that’s why cocaine is never the answer. 

I love this story, but I won’t deny that I completely lost it at the “calm your mind” gif. I bow to the master.

New anon here! Just out of curiosity, just how many gifs do you have? And do you collect them just for the sake of having replies to asks? Of course I'm not complaining, since I love your gif-answers!
findchaos findchaos Said:

In all seriousness, very few. I stopped saving gifs (except for the very obscure) because I like choosing them on the fly, free-association-style. I’m afraid my replies are just how I think: abstractly and with far too many pop culture references to be healthy.

lol but really, who thinks being mean to dumb anons is funny???

FindChaos Cosplay!

Love Toony and Tokki of Struggle Cosplay cosplayed Arthur and C.E. (respectively) and it turned out amazing!!! Since they gave us permission to broadcast this brilliance, obviously we couldn’t help ourselves. I mean, damn!

Thanks a million, guys! Seeing our characters brought to life is a treat!

(And as an aside to anyone else who has cosplayed our characters: all of the love and “wow”s, too! We just didn’t want to share without explicit permission! <3)

We’re head down in production mode for Blood Root issues #2 and #3, but it seemed silly to wait any longer to show you these gorgeous covers.

The Issue 2 cover is by James Neish, who is also the artist on Marie and Jeanne. We’ve been friends for a loooong time, since we both lived in the Philippines, and I am delighted that I still get to show you his remarkable work. The issue features the work of CB Webb, Carey Pietsch, and A. Stiffler and K. Copeland.

The Issue 3 cover is by Aatmaja Pandya, whose gorgeous linework has been one of favourite art finds of the past year. I am so happy that she agreed to do this cover for us! This issue (which is going to be printed in black and white, but is going to be about 50 pages!) features the work of Noel Franklin, Haan Lee, and Ram V and Kishore Mohan.

As it goes, Issue #3 is likely to actually be printed first, but you should be able to have a copy of both issues by the end of the year!  

I’m in love with the covers for Issues 2 and 3 of Blood Root(issue 2 by James Neish, issue 3 by Aatmaja Pandya) and I’m so constantly gleeful that I get to work with amazing creators to make this sort of thing happen.
