nickelmountain: (weird at last)

So, uh, instead of doing any of the things I needed/wanted to do today, I listened to the last ten episodes of Welcome to Night Vale and made a demotivational poster for it. Which is actually the first non-podfic related fanart I've ever made. So, there's that.

Now I need to download all the WtNV podfic that exists and consume it all in one gluttonous burst of fannishness. Then I will retreat into the darkest corner of my home and wait with terror, resolve, and tender longing in my heart for the next episode to come out.

I also need to finish my amplirecathon post and catch up on my correspondence. I am behind. As usual. (Sorry.)

Hey, uh - I made a Night Vale user icon, too. It's not great, but it'll do for my purposes. I really wish I could draw. (I mean, yes, I used to make comics, but the drawings in them were seriously terrible. Straight lines are not my friend.) What I'm getting at is, I'm willing to share. If you want it, go for it. If you don't, I completely understand. Maybe I'll make more, better icons in the future. Or maybe they'll all continue to come out looking something like this.

Or maybe I'll just focus on making Welcome to Night Vale podfic. Stick with what I know, you know?

Either way, here it is:



I'm just going to post this now before my insecurity consumes me and I start making more embarrassing apologies for my work as if it's not okay to be new at doing something and everyone will immediately unfriend me and someone will eventually spot me roaming the Sand Wastes attempting to carve icons into a cactus with a small piece of sharpened stone muttering "anchor layer...colorize...increase contrast...apply gaussian blur...".

Yeah. Posting now.

Cool! Go you for putting something new out there. I like it!

Now I'm all curious to check out this Night Vale thing.

Ooh, you should! I think you'd really like it. It's a narrative podcast structured as a community radio show for the small desert town of Night Vale. Each episode is 20-30 minutes, and they're gloriously weird. And also really sweet. I don't normally invest too much in ships, but I love Cecil/Carlos.

Apparently people who like Hannibal tend to like Welcome to Night Vale. At least, that's what the internet tells me. I can believe it.

(Thanks for the comment, btw. Putting something new out there is scary!)

that's a tight present
