I’ve changed my tumblr!

If you want to keep following me I’m at adoseofabby.tumblr.com :)

That perfect girl is gone. Here I stand in the light of day. Let the storm rage on! The cold never bothered me anyway.









I’d like to see you hand draw full feature length films without ever recycling frames.

It’s not as easy as it looks.

Also hella expensive, and this kind of thing STILL goes on today. Beauty and the Beast had recycled Sleeping Beauty animation, and Princess and the Frog had birds in the wedding scene that were originally from The Lion King.

live-action modern day “the lion king”
NEW YORK, 1960s. The civil rights movement reaches its crest. Mufasa, a prominent activist leader in the city, clashes against his younger brother Scar, himself a prominent leader of the mafia underground. Politics against politics, brother against brother; Mufasa dies, Scar reigns. A new law governs New York in the 70s: blood and bribery.

Henson as Timon, Mo’Nique as Pumbaa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Older Simba, Kerry Washington as Older Nala, John Boyega as Kovu, Zoe Kravitz as Kiara.

Toned paper sketches for sale

Money is pretty tight this month, so I’m selling the originals of all these drawings! Each one is 9x12 inches and signed by me. They’re up for grabs over at my Etsy Shop!

If these do well then I’ll be sure to draw some more. =)

"Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up, so that they can feel this way, too."
Lemony Snicket (via durianquotes)

Kumi Yamashita - Origami. Creased Japanese paper, single light source, shadow, 366x366x1cm (2011)


This is my favorite book in the world. It is a first edition print of Peter Pan, my favorite story. It’s still in great condition, even though it’s over a hundred years old. I used to read this all the time, but now I can’t because my mom finally found out how valuable it is. But sometimes i look inside, as if this old book will take me to Neverland.
