Whenever I see strawman comics, where we’ve got the calm, supposedly-rational artist self-insert and the frothing, angry, stereotypical-in-every-way opposition, everything else gets filtered out and this is all I see:
You might not know his face- but if you’re a fan of Gravity Falls you know his work. Art Director Ian Worrel (http://enworrel.blogspot.com) just won an Emmy for individual achievement in art direction, and the team here at GF couldn’t be more proud. Ian himself is a pretty humble and reserved guy, so this is the perfect place to brag about him and totally embarrass the guy. Deal with it, Ian!
If Gravity Falls was a real town, Ian Worrel would be its true founder, landscaper and architect. Every gnarled tree, cluster of moss, sweeping vista, creepy cave and foggy forest, not to mention the Mystery Shack itself- were conceived, drawn, and painted under his expert guidance. The guy is a legit genius, a natural talent, and of the most hardworking, warm, and genuinely smart people in the industry.
When I was in my 3rd year in college, I had the absurd good fortune to be Ian’s room-mate. We were basically the Goofus and Gallant of CalArts. He would get up every morning at the crack of dawn to work diligently on his film, following his schedule and improving his craft with a level of seriousness and focus that became campus legend. I on the other hand would wake up at noon, forget to shower, chase ducks around and almost get arrested by campus security for riding a miniature motorcycle throughout he halls. Imagine my surprise that this guy would agree to work with me then- and continue to do so all these years. I’m lucky to call him a collaborator, but even luckier to call him a friend.
And now that Ian is suitably embarrassed, I will share with you a never before known piece of Gravity Falls trivia. You know that stamp in the theme song title card? Does it resemble anyone to you?
There is no Gravity Falls without Ian Worrel. Congrats buddy on this latest achievement! We’re all so proud to work with you, man!
Thanks in advance. #youhavetwentyfourhours
I think this video might interest you guys.
4 days ago, Olivia Olson confirmed that Marceline and Bonnibel have dated before. The reason it has been confirmed is because the new Adventure Time book coming out soon may have details on their relationship, and their relationship obviously can’t be aired on TV because some states of America (and countries in the world) are against same-sex marriage and relationships.
But yeah, they have indeed dated before.
Can we also talk about official Bubbline art drawn by Natasha Allgeri, former character designer and story board artist for Adventure Time, and now Showrunner of Bee and Puppy Cat!?
the only “otp” i will ever recognize ever

Wrist is still in rough shape so I’ve been trying to do regular non-dominant hand drawings. Since I’m already unsteady doing this stuff, I’m trying to force myself to draw things I don’t like drawing.

Be a good friend. When your friend leaves an abusive relationship, delete/unfollow/unfriend their abuser. Don’t give them anymore activity. When they leave, leave with them. Be their support system. You cannot be neutral when someone was abused.
She just beat her first Zelda ⊟
"Can I play again?" Too adorable. It looks like she played The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on her 2DS, which is a great game worth crying over. Maybe her parents will download Link’s Awakening for her next?
a lot of the pseudo romantic posts on this site stress me out bc
- everyone talks about eating ass but how many people actually practice good hygiene is a mystery to me
- strange emoji usage+creepy baby talk
- most of it gives off “we gonna bone in the dumpster” type vibes
ill pray for u all
With so many cultures and peoples from all parts of the world it’s not uncommon to see this blend of modesty in my hometown of Detroit, Michigan U.S.A. Here I captured in the heart of down town this perfect mix of east meets west with the turban and popular 90’s American style of oversized sweater with the work out leggings and big socks.
