[I]t’s a little shocking to learn that Osamu Tezuka, the creator of Astro Boy, kept a stash of sexy mouse drawings locked in his desk.
not even the god of manga can escape the real reason artists fear death
with my fursona
i started laughing and then i cried but i was still laughing
everyone’s talking about the mouse like there isnt a naked woman transforming into a sexy snake right next to it
thats a sexy snake? i didnt look hard enough and thought it was a snake that swallowed sexy mouse like some straight vore shit or somethin
Nope it looks like a sexy mouse transforming into a snake with tits.
But it’s not really all that shocking, if you’re familiar with his later work.
I’m a big fan, but it’s hardly stretching the truth to say that his published manga can go from “whoa”, to “outrageous!”, to “WHAT THE FLYING FUCK DID I JUST READ” (not even in a good way).
When you have that background information in mind, a naked woman turning into a snake with boobs (and a butt) seems… well, lightweight.

"It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.
You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything."
I’ve posted this before but I’m posting it again because it’s just so important and really gets at the heart of why so much advice about procrastination, much of it targeted at people who have ADHD but are just considered “lazy,” fails. Before you can tell someone to “just do it already,” you need to think about the reasons they’re NOT doing it, like all the meanings they’ve attached to vague terms like “success” and “failure.”
That resonates too much. As I sit on tumblr at 1 in the morning, avoid studying for a test I have at noon today.
All those nights in college I waited until 10am the night before it was due to start a paper…
Or all the stories I have yet to write and refresh tumblr instead
… Oh shit.
Pretty much this. This seems accurate.

I am thinking of doing an anthology project (not with a kickstarter or printing it in mind) where it’d be about artists from different countries drawing a self portrait of them self and how they perceive their country/culture. It’d focus more on artists from around the world instead of someone who’s lived in the US their whole life and moved to X country and isn’t it so wacky how they have currywurst here ha ha-.
I have no idea who else would be interested, but I already got my buddy Pietro (from Brazil) and Seage (Jamaican, British, Canadian) on board so I’d love to hear if anyone else would be interested in joining in.
Reblogging, because this sounds like a fantastic idea, and I’m hoping that some of the artists who follow this tumblr will speak up if they’re interested!
