Hey guys, I’m fortunate enough to be a part of the “MeatBall Head” Art show curated by the awesome nicocolaleo in L.A.
This one was fun, I rarely use line and have been having fun with it lately working on comics and planting Easter eggs in my pieces,would’ve liked to have planted more but eh, next time. Hope you like it.
Unfortunately I won’t be there but my piece will- along with some other awesome artists who I work with( wscottforbes, halfglovepunch , perinm & shaburdies ) and some who I follow on tumblr. Go check it out if you’re in the area at at Meltdown Comics/Nerdist Showroom on August 16th ! Should be a good time :).
ugh, like there is LITERALLY no canonical evidence for the ~han solo: space womanizer~ head canon. like, when he first meets the ONE female character in the entire series that he interacts with he is GROUCHY and SHOUTY at her, not sauve and dashing. she thinks he is a tool and tells him this multiple times. not really smooth and charming.
he then takes to following her around on Hoth and practically pulling her pigtails asking ” DO YOU LIKE ME? YES/NO? (PLS SAY YES)” with hearts in his eyes. (Chewie probably had to throw out like a HALF DOZEN old notebooks that were filled with awful power ballads/poetry/odes to her and “Mr. Han Organa” written in different fonts)
when it comes to the iconic ‘i know’ in response to Leia’s proclamtion of love, Ford has stated that it’s out of PURE CONCERN for HER FEELINGS (“the point is that I’m not worried about myself anymore, I’m worried about her” - DIRECT QUOTE), it was NOT a ‘boss’ move or ‘so swagtastic it hurts’ it was an apology that he couldn’t be there for her, it was an attempt to make her smile, to make it hurt less than if he had said the words too and then was forced to leave her. (not that he would have been much help; remember that han solo spends the majority of the 3rd film mostly blind and feeble, unable to take care of himself and generally getting in the way while Leia Gets Shit Done)
when he does say the words, it’s with the most adoring and awestruck expression. those words are fused with more than just love and respect. he’s almost HONOURED that he gets to love this badass babe and that she allows him to exist in her orbit.
AND THEN he loves Leia so much that he’s willing to step aside so she can be happy with the man he believes she wants. and valuing a woman’s choices and feelings over your own is not exactly womanizing behaviour - so where did this headcanon come from??
"mom.. dad.. i .. i like steven moffat"
the sky turns black. children scream. the earth is in ruins. my parents disown me. i push feminism back hundreds of years. doctor who is canceled. i am the sole cause of the red wedding. somewhere in that parallel universe, rose tyler bursts into tears.
oh god what have i done
Probably one of the best costumes from the con that I’ve seen.
i literally tried to make up a nice caption for this one but i failed. there’s no word in any language in this word, not even in Gallifreyan i think, to describe the happiness in the eyes and the laugh of this man…
only 3 sleeps left Peter, just 3 of them…
Maybe if I’d had this a week ago I would’ve passed the test

Found the Doctor Who magazine shit talking Moffat
That’s Moffat himself shit talking himself actually.
Have people not realised by now that Moffat seems to enjoy trashing himself? When he’s talking about the other writers or actors he’s all “Oh they are brilliant, we are so lucky to have them” and when it comes to himself he’s all “Who? Oh, that useless plonker, I don’t know why we keep hiring him.”
He’s always had a very self-depreciating kind of humour, that generally comes about from people who have been bullied - I do it quite often, I know several of my friends who do it as well. It’s something that ends up sticking with you after years of being told that you’re not good enough in some way or other, and it pops up a lot in Steven’s interviews.
“When I was a kid and being terribly bullied at school, it was you who made getting to Saturday worthwhile.” [x]
"I’m a geek. I’m a writer. I spent all of my time in my childhood obsessing about Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Who. I was alone, I was an outsider — what do you expect? I was that bullied kid at the back of the class weeping for loneliness." [x]
It’s why I really don’t get any of the comments people make about him being “arrogant” or having a “massive ego” because it’s the complete bloody opposite. Watch and listen to his interviews where he actually talks about his own stuff, he always commends the cast and production team for making his stuff good and talks about how his stuff just doesn’t work without them - like when he talks about The Beast Below being his least favourite episode that he’s written because he thinks it was a mess (it’s still one of my favourite episodes of Series 5). He constantly praises people like Mark Gatiss, Neve and Dan (Vastra and Strax), and RTD (who he calls “the best writer breathing”), and makes it clear just how brilliant he thinks their work is - like all the improvised humour that Dan brings as Strax, since most of it is more his own work than what Moff writes him.
Everything else I’ve researched about this whole sort of ‘topic’ has simply come up with numerous incidents of him, and anybody who has said anything positive about him, being bullied and receiving death threats - like Amanda Abbington, who made a lengthy post about it. It’s why the words ‘Moffat hate’ always make my stomach churn when I see them because hate is not criticism, certainly the kind of things that are posted under that tag are not pieces of criticism. Criticism comes from people who want to evaluate their measure of a work’s value, hate comes from people who want to do nothing else but tear it down, simplify/generalise it down to fit their view, and then send a wave of abuse at the person they ‘disagree’ with.
It’s hard enough to deal with that sort of thing in real life (scarring, in fact), but I can’t even imagine how horrible it must be online with that guise of anonymity - I’ve received only small pockets of hate in my time as a blogger, I riled up some 4chan members either last year or early this year when I made a pro-feminist post that got some of them saying “oh we should hack his account and make him look really misogynistic”. But as far as hate goes, that’s about it. I can’t imagine what it must be like to receive death threats and that sort of thing, it’s the lowest thing you can stoop to really and it’s why I really do hate television fandoms quite a lot.
Well this ended up going on for much longer than I thought it would, but there’s a lot to be said about the kinds of people who will define their posts as hate rather than criticism. One openly invites a dialogue with others where you can debate your opinions, the other will lash out at you with abusive comments for not agreeing, and I’m sure we can reconcile which goes with which here.
