I just want you to know that browsing your blog got me out of my artist's block. Thank you for being inspiring. (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ

AHHHH, thank you! ;A; I am slowly crawling my way out of a small art block myself (I saw Jonathan Larson’s tick, tick…BOOM! at New York City Center a month ago and it messed me up, man. MESSED ME UP BAD.) so I’m glad to hear that I could help you out with yours!

(For anyone else who’s art blocking right now, there’s this fantastic song from [ title of show ] that might help you out!)

Daily Dude Drawing #1. Trying to get to the point where drawing men comes more naturally to me, and so I’m gonna draw a guy at least once a day ahaha. It’s one thing to be able to draw body parts in the right place, but it’s another thing completely to capture masculine energy and body language.

Hey there! Just a friendly citizen making sure that you aren't dead from all those emails :)

Hi! Gimme a couple more days and I should be able to finish responding. I’ve pretty much read everything but making individual responses is time consuming, and I’ve been doing that between Otakon commitments and other projects I need to take care of.

Yo, guys, remember last April I went to go see The Lightning Thief Musical concert and it was a super cute show and everyone who’s a fan of the books should go see it?
Well, if you can come to New York City this Thursday at 6:30pm I have an exclusive invite from Theatreworks for the opening night show*, and I can bring a few more fans with me for free. I only have a few tickets so it’s on a first come, first serve basis. Just message me by 12PM EST Wednesday, with your name to secure a spot.
Otherwise, if you can’t come this Thursday you can check out the show’s schedule here. They’ll be playing all summer in NYC for free. Theatreworks is such a rad organization that allows kids, regardless of their monetary situation, to be exposed early to theater and as a huge fan of the theater, I’m glad to support them. :)
*note that tickets are only for the show, and not the afterparty.

Will you be announcing who you'e collaborating with here on tumblr or will you just email out saying whether or not the person was excepted?

@Anonymous

Just a general update on what’s up with all of this, since I’ve gotten a couple questions. Almost 20 people sent me emails (which is AWESOME by the way) so there’s a lot to go over and read. Since they all gave me the courtesy of emailing me their work, I will do them the courtesy of reading and responding to everybody (even if it is a short response.) That might be a little impractical, but it’s not impossible, and as much as I want to collaborate with EVERYBODY I need to take things one step at a time. 

I’m still not finished reading everything, and it’s going to be hard choosing only one person for now, but I’m hoping to keep the others in mind for future collaborations if they’re still willing.

Hey so when do you think you'll be announcing who you'll be collaborating with?

@Anonymous

Hi! I’ve got a few more emails than anticipated (and I’m still accepting emails until tomorrow-ish) and so it’s a fair bit of writing to read through. Like I said, I want to be careful and considerate about this because even if this is only a fun short story comic, it’s still a commitment of time on both the writer and artist’s ends. “Short” comics can wind up having long production times, so I don’t want to jump the gun and rush into something I’m not 100% sure I want to dedicate my time to.

(On a related note: I’ve read some great things so far. There are some really talented writers out there!)

man you know what I’d love to do? collaborate on a short story comic with a writer. I love writing and story structure, but it seriously stresses me out so much that sometimes I just want someone else to take care of it for me so I can focus on visual narrative.

Alright, guys. I’ve been getting some messages from some of ya’ll about possible collaborations and that’s amazing and exciting! *u* So, if you’re seriously interested feel free to shoot me an email at arielle[dot]jovellanos@gmail. You can send me links to your writing, excerpts, or even just some pitches of a short story you’d like to make. I’ll read over everything I receive and let you know if we’d be a good fit. (I’ve already received a couple things that I’ll look over in the morning. It’s really late here!)

Obligatory disclaimer: Obviously, I don’t want to waste anyone’s time and we’re all busy people, so a collaboration (even if it is just for fun) isn’t worth doing if we’re not both passionate about the material we’re working on—meaning I’m going to be very careful and considerate about finding a potential writing partner.

That being said, if you’re still interested please feel free to contact me!

Afternoon reblog. Thanks for all the inquiries so far guys! Will look at them all later in the day. (Have to take care of a few other responsibilities first but I can’t wait to read everything!!)

The way I got to intern at Frederator is an extremely harrowing tale full of dangerous mystique, government secrets, and disgruntled (puppy)cats.
But the short version of the story is this: Last year at NYCC, I dressed up as Fishbowl Space Bee, and ran into Frederator’s Director of Marketing, Publicity, & Licensing on the train into the city. We had a nice conversation as we made our way to the convention center. He gave me a card, offered me an internship position, and I followed up via email a week later. I got called in for an interview and was taken on as an intern for Spring semester. It was a coincidence. A very fortunate coincidence.
That being said, if you wanna go through the process sans the costume, emailing someone directly will probably net similar results. (You can find contacts through their site.) All the other interns I’ve talked to have said that’s how they did it, but I’ve also known one who just walked into the NYC office and asked in person. I know they’ve already hired all their interns for the summer, but I’m sure they’re going to be looking for people for the fall. Best of luck! It’s a very fun environment to be in and the best internship I’ve ever had. If you have anymore questions, let me know!
