Our town.

Oct. 22nd, 2011 | 11:04 pm

Sometimes I like to bitch about my city to an unbelievable extent, like when it takes me 2 hours to get home on a Saturday night because of random bullshit traffic, but a lot of the time I much prefer to wax poetic about Toronto because, at the end of the day, I really do love it so damn much.

I found this fantastic video that is a must-see for any fellow Torontonians out there, along with anyone else who is curious about the city, thinking of visiting, or has visited in the past and is simply looking to reminisce.

Did some art today. Hope y'all like. The quote is taken from Rilke's Book of Hours.

eBook Covers!

Jun. 11th, 2011 | 11:16 am

This is kind of a random post, but for those of you fond of eBooks and in possession of an eReader, I thought I'd direct your attention to a great Etsy shop that sells the cutest little eReader covers you ever did see.

This is the one I got:

Adorable, n'est pas? The shop is called CW Creations - I have no affiliation with them whatsoever, so I'm not getting anything out of pimping their store, but if you're in the market for a sweet, high-quality cover, it's worth checking out. I was really impressed by the craftsmanship and the colour/pattern combinations, and am far more enamoured of the unique design than I would have been by one of the uninspired designs available through eReader retailers such as Best Buy or Chapters/Borders/Barnes & Noble, etc. They're a little on the pricey side, I admit, once you factor in shipping (within the US it's far more reasonable, about $5, but to Canada I had to fork over almost $12 in shipping), but I'm so happy with my purchase that I sort of don't mind. Most covers run at around $45, which is not much more than you'd pay for a generic folder cover in store. The best thing is, the covers fit most eReaders, and you can ask them to customize the size depending on what type of device you have at home.

Happy shopping!

In the spirit of helping those in need, I have made an offer for two buy-it-now fics in honour of the seriously lovely, talented and fabulous [info]plentyofowls, who is in need of some support. As someone who has been a privileged recipient of her amazing artwork, kindness and wicked sense of humour, I am all too happy to return the favour and help out in the best way I know how - in this case, offering some fic. If you're interested in contributing any creative works, please click the banner above and visit the comm.

My thread can be found here - my current offer is for two fics, either Dean/Castiel or Jensen/Misha, starting at $5 (USD)/1000 words. The fic can be as long or as short as you like (well, barring the minimum); each additional 1000 words is $5, so when you place your bid be sure to let me know your maximum amount. Unlike traditional auctions, the winning bids will belong two the first two people to post.

Check it out and support a good cause and a beloved fandom talent. Chop-chop!

Art Masterpost: When Play Turns Bitter

mood: ecstatic ecstatic

Artwork for my fic, When Play Turns Bitter, by the astoundingly brilliant, generous and supportive [livejournal.com profile] daggomus_prime. Although the story isn't altogether done yet, I thought it would be a good idea to gather all of Dag's amazing artwork into one place for easy access, especially as new pieces get added.

If you have nightmares about the future, you have to have a cigarette.

music: Quantic - Off the Beaten Track
mood: accomplished accomplished

So, as you can see, I'm trying out a new layout. I must admit I felt rather jealous of the layout I adapted for the [info]wipper_snappers comm, because it really is gorgeous (and you should immediately be checking out [info]ghost_factory if you like it), so my little project tonight was to try and come up with a way to make it Dean/Cas related without looking gaudy. Hopefully I've managed that much. The background image is actually a wallpaper I futzed together in a fit of texture-happy desperation using artwork from [info]aesc; I hope y'all like it. There might be some additional tweaking in the near future as I figure out exactly what I want, but I'll try not to do anything too crazy.

Girl's like a hat trick

God damn, [info]daggomus_prime has gone and done it AGAIN. She surprised me this morning with the second piece of artwork for When Play Turns Bitter, and even though I knew what was coming, I didn't know what was coming, yaknowwhatimean? Anyway, nothing I say here will do it or my appreciation justice, so just take a look-see for yerself.

Fanart: Dean Portrait (in pencil) for cautionzombies

Tomorrow is [livejournal.com profile] cautionzombies' birthday and I promised her a picture of Dean (in lieu of yet more fic - how exhausting! XD), but since I'm heading out of town tonight, I thought I'd post this early so as not to miss the big day before I leave. Click the preview image (or the LJ cut) to see the whole thing.

Anyone who knows me a little will know that few things in life actually reduce me to speechlessness and/or vowel sounds. I'm sure that seeing Jensen and/or Misha without their kit on would be one.

But here's another:
