The Aquabats! Super Show!
"Not all men are like that!" I say profoundly.
A glass of water drops and shatters. A hushed silence falls over the room. They stand in awe before the wisdom I’ve provided the world.
"My god…" a woman says "this… this changes everything.”
I had a great idea that this would make…
Can this be a thing? I want to be a part of this.
(cont.) I became inspired again recently and I have been drawing and sketching everyday (for the past two years) as well as learning animation on my own. I am heavily influenced by your webcomic, but I just wanted to know if it was too late to pursue my dream without school and by myself at 28?
I started TJ and Amal at 31, with a weak art education and zero experience in comics, so you can probably guess where I stand on the matter!
I wish our culture didn’t place such heavy emphasis on “making it” in your teens and twenties; that the (justifiable!) attention paid to prodigies wouldn’t set “prodigy” as the norm. This kind of BS does everyone a disservice.
If you have a dream and the resources/ability to pursue it, there’s no reason to sit it out just because “everyone makes it by 25.” Because everyone DOESN’T make it by 25. Some do, some don’t, whatever.
What’s more, age can bring experience that will inform your work — work you couldn’t have made at 20 or 25 without that experience.
Sometimes when I get discouraged about this stuff, it helps to remember an anecdote I read a few years ago—
A retiree mentions to her friend that she’s considering going back to college and finishing her degree.
"What, at 65?" says her friend, "You’ll be at least 40 years older than everyone else in class!"
To which the lady replies, “oh, so you think I should wait till I’m 70?”
There’s no going backwards.

Bronies already made NSFW pictures of Stellar Eclipse, even though Sylvain Portelance, the OC’s creator and VA who has spinal muscular atrophy, and his mother asked people not to do so.
Also, apparently putting that OC on the show, even though it was a simple request from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, is “political bullshit” and has no place in MLP.
I know I usually don’t post such negative stuff on this blog, but holy shit.
Bronies being absolute shit the never ending story
In case anyone is still unclear an extremely ill child’s wish was for their original My Little Pony character added to the show and a bunch of adult men who get off to badly drawn horse ass got incredibly angry that a children’s cartoon would do something so “social justice flavored” and also angry that the child respectfully asked they hold back on the pornography so they made an extra effort to draw pornography I guess to teach that audacious, selfish child a lesson of some sort
there’s just no words
Gawd fucking dammit
I’d just like to reblog this again to point out how sad it is that the brony reputation is so shit that they had to specifically ask them to not make porn of it. And then they did it anyway.
