Clarke's Collectibles

Just a place where I collect things that interest me. And maybe some stuff from me. MAYBE.

I’m not an artist, but I have more than a few friends who are, so I thought this might be a good thing to post. 

I used to do freelance illustration and gd, this is sound advice.
No free work and get paid on signing the contract. Otherwise they will take ur shit and never pay you.
Never send anything in to be ‘chosen’ unless it’s a comp. If u send any work in they must pay you for it even if they decide they’re ‘not going to use it after all’.

If you are going to do free work (I’d never stop anyone working for free, I still do things that look fun for friends when I can, and can point to things I did that no-one paid me for as things that got me real work further down the line) own it, lock stock and barrel.

Artists!! THIS!!

Will always reblog this. Always.

Sage advice, BUT, I think the one exception should be when the project entails all proceeds going to some charity or other. I’m not the slightest bit interested in making money for other people, but I am interested in working for a good cause.

Yup.

Character fanart from The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson. I’ve been burning through this series recently and I cannot wait for the next book!

The first time I read this I saw “we” instead of “he,” but the message is just as relevant. To all of you fuckers.

Genderfuck by Toyota, starring Stav Strashko ;)

Watch the commercial here

Finally androgyns are taken seriously.

WORK IT BABY.

son of a bITCH HES GORGEOUS

Uhhh, can I BE you, please?

I also like the look the model gives the camera like ‘and you were expecting another over-sexualised commercial with a half naked woman for your male viewing pleasure. Mind fuck bitches.’

Perverted bastard deserves it. This guy make dudes bend, ‘til the point of where the word “straight” isn’t a word in their dicti

Brilliantly well done. I look forward to the day this commercial isn’t necessary.

This is ingenious.

mcdonalds needs to do this

WHAT

okay but I’m actually really scared that the lid of the drink is going to come off or something

//the way this works is that it stops about 2 inches above the top (the hole only big enough to go that far without ripping) so you  wouldn’t have to worry about the lid coming off!
it’s really a brilliant idea. it cuts down on the amount of materials used,  and space it takes up. all around good engineering.

from the looks of it it might be recycled materials too? if not then it should be.

it frees up your other hand from having to carry your drink but also doesn’t shove the cold drink next to the warm food
brilliant!

This is the definition of innovation, no amount of sleeves on a blanket can beat this.

You can even stick it in your cup holder and then snag fries through the vent in the side while you’re driving! OH GOD I’M SO HUNGRY NOW!
Oh No! Critical flaw! Once I am consuming salty hot delicious fries…there is no way to DRINK A DRINK! NOOOO!! NOOOOOOOO!!!!!

The straw can be put at an angle Hank YOU’RE SAFE DON’T WORRY

Law and Order SVU makes a serious Doctor Who Reference/Crossover

So I’m working my way through every Law and Order SVU episode ever (I know, I have no life…) and all of the sudden this lawyer with a British accent turns up for this case about a transgendered kid. I was working, but I looked back to the screen in time to see this lawyer, Ms. Pond:

MS. MIRANDA POND

So somewhere in between her TARDIS adventures, Prof. River Song makes time to work the N.Y. legal system under a rather obvious pseudonym.

This is pretty fantastic.

Books you Need to Read: 9/?

Temeraire Series by Naomi Novik 

Aerial combat brings a thrilling new dimension to the Napoleonic Wars as valiant warriors ride mighty fighting dragons, bred for size or speed. When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes the precious cargo, an unhatched dragon egg, fate sweeps Captain Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future – and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. 
Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle. For as France’s own dragon-borne forces rally to breach British soil in Bonaparte’s boldest gambit, Laurence and Temeraire must soar into their own baptism of fire.

Personal Review 

Honestly, the reason I stopped reading after the 3rd book was because I found it quite boring at a certain few chapters. The books can be a bit dry, but they are defiantly worth a read. There are over 9 books written in the series, and I suggest sitting down and reading them all in order, without having other books on the side. They are complex and often hard to get through.
 I’m hoping that coming back to these books after years away from them will bring me a new perspective on them! I recommend this dries to avid readers whom enjoy fantasy!

List of the Books Here
- The Clockmakers Daughter

I’ve only read the first, but I fell in love with the world quickly - someday I’ll hunt down the rest, though I’ve heard less-impressive things about the books as they go on.

Actresses that I absolutely adore - I hate being looked at. Can’t stand it. I know, I know - I picked the wrong career. I should have been a doctor. If you play certain parts you have this nice face painted on you, and then you have feel as if you have a responsibility to this idea of being beautiful. I hate that about our business. It shouldn’t inform what you do. But there’s a perceived inverse relation between looks and talent.

Today I learned that Cersei/Lena Headey has unbelievably gorgeous tattoos. Hot damn.
