Artist. Animator. Fangirl.

This blog sometimes attempts to be an artblog, but it also has whatever I happen to fancy at the moment.

Enjoy. :)

Hey everyone! If you get a chance, definitely check out this AMAZING project that I got to be a part of! Thanks Kate for this great opportunity and hopefully I can contribute to a future project again!

Well, that was easy.

You just learned 8 Chinese words in the cutest way possible.

When TED speaker ShaoLan Hsueh tried to teach her children Chinese, she realized just how hard it is for new learners to grasp. So she created a series of illustrations to make the beautiful, often complex characters easier to remember. It makes learning Chinese … wait for it … Chineasy.

Try Chineasy for yourself and watch her full talk here »

Sailor Senshi + Tuxedo Mask in haute couture! It was really fun to pick out clothes that I thought best suited each of them. I also drew a lot of these at work so it kept me quite busy XD

If you squint hard enough, it does kinda look like Chris Evans…

"People fuck up. That’s life. Family is supposed to be forever. They’re supposed to take care of you regardless what you do. That’s the whole point, otherwise why bother?"

yo can I drop some advice all you kids trying to get entry level jobs need to learn? I learned it the hard way and now I shall impart that to you.

when you see this shit, that goes “you need like 10 years experience and all this other qualifications nobody with all that would ever apply for a job like this with”, that means one thing: they are weeding out people who don’t believe they can achieve that level. They go “sigh, I can’t even compete, fuck it.” and don’t apply, saving the company the trouble.

What you, as a fresh new student, need to do- is apply anyway with a Luffy-like optimism that you will get that fucking job!! You don’t have a million years experience BUT YOU’LL TRY AND NEVER GIVE UP ETC. You write an opener letter with that in it, submit your shit, and get that goddamn job because they just found somebody who’s willing to give it a try anyway, who has the confidence and the ability to play with the big boys and they will train you to become a master because fresh meat is vital to the industry. 

tldr: APPLY ANYWAY, YOUNG GRASSHOPPER

i really wish i’d read this three months ago

to those who are still looking for their first job: it wouldn’t hurt to try. the worst thing that can happen is that you get a “no”

So, really interesting statistic that just came up in hiring diversity training at work: women will typically only apply to a position if they feel they meet 100% of the requirements.  Men will typically apply if they feel they meet just 60%.

And guess what?  They still get hired, because a lot of job descriptions are total garbage.  These aren’t crafted masterpieces handed down from the divine goddess of Human Resources.  These are things that were thrown together at the last minute 3 years ago by some manager with too many more important things to do, and they’ve been used untouched ever since.

Think about this, and think about those numbers, ladies.  Think long and hard about this statistic next time you are looking at a job description and telling yourself that you can’t cut it.  You probably can, and applying is free.

(P.S.: I’m happy to give resume advice to people - especially new college grads in the tech industry.  That’s the field I know and do interviews in; I’m not sure if my advice would be as applicable elsewhere.)
