I’m over at the League of Reluctant Adults this morning, chatting about words and how reading books can be a bit of a springboard into inspiration. (At least for me. Also, a bit of ranting about being trolled on that chat thing the other day. Tenacious thing, grudges. Alas.)
However, the most awesome part of my day has nothing to do with blogging at all (or books, really.) A few weeks ago, an artist that I watch on tumblr/DA blew up her hard drive and started taking commissions to help get a new one.
So I chucked some money at her, because her livestreams are about the funniest things I’ve ever seen. (I have to turn them off or I’ll never get anything done at work, in fact.) I’m peeling back the shame of my Dragon Age fangirling here for you, but I asked her to draw me something silly with Fenris (the emo elf). To understand the epic nature of this picture, there is a line in the game where Fenris is asked what he does in this run-down mansion that he squats it. And he replies that he goes from room to room, choreographing dance routines.
And so he does, a la Risky Business:
Go visit Jak’s DA or Tumblr when you get a chance (although it’s sometimes NSFW, just warning.) I haven’t been able to stop laughing since I got the hi-res version in my email last night. It’s now the wallpaper on my corporate iPad (which I get to borrow for a few weeks, hooray.)
