pizza party for one

Ask me anything!   Illustration, visual development, animation, politics, silly things, and maybe a smattering of fandom here and there.

Maybe check out my art blog? sabinalindemann.tumblr.com

Yeah, actually, I’m making a new tumblr for all my personal stuff:

@medievalloserpostmodernghost

(…I did a “random aesthetic generator” once and that was my result. It’s kind of amazing and I’ve always wanted to use it for something, so…)

Feel free to follow me, but expect mostly text posts. <3

I think I’m going to quit tumblr for a little while.

I wish I didn’t have to because it’s a really important place for me to vent and talk my shit through, but I need to distance myself from illustration right now like MAD. And there’s no way I’m going to unfollow all these amazing art blogs because there’s no way I’d ever find them all again…

But I’m really struggling to find my voice right now and I feel like being constantly hooked into this pipeline of amazing work is making this struggle harder. Even though you’d think looking at all this stuff would be inspiring, I think it may be having the opposite effect, like I’m being averaged out to the lowest common denominator of style.

Maybe I’ll just make a whole new account, one where I don’t follow any blogs, so I can vent and talk to buds away from the feed. But that would mean I’d miss out on all my friend’s posts… hrm. Maybe I’ll just follow friend’s blogs or something. Sigh. I don’t know. I don’t know.

In the last week I’ve had three strangers randomly stop me just to tell me how great my hair is and how well it suits me.

It’s pretty rad that people can be so nice sometimes, and also it replenishes my self esteem meter.

Do you ever think about how Sandor Clegane (dark hair, grey eyes) had a little sister who died when she was a child, and how she probably also had dark hair and grey eyes, and thus probably looked rather like Arya Stark?

Something I made in July, some advice for illustrators I’ve heard from established pros.
A good reminder for new illustrators and recent grads, never give up! Work hard, keep creating, be kind to yourself, you’re in it for the long haul.

Sometimes I worry that I can’t tell the different between someone being nice and someone actually flirting with me. It really fucks me up and I worry if I’m wrong about it, it’ll get me into some kind of trouble somewhere along the line…

thaxted said: You are not the only one, that’s for sure. :(

killerteacell said: HOW CAN YOU EVEN TELL? Please share your wisdom with me if you ever unlock the secret. I have no clue whatsoever whether someone is flirty or just nice, and I also have no idea how to be clear when speaking. An “I’m flirting with you” card, maybe?

If you meet someone new and you end up talking for a while about stuff you like and body language seems to connect up all right, and then you exchange contact information, like, that seems pretty clear to me? (But I guess people just do that anyway to become friends?) Or at least clear enough for a follow-up since there is some sort of mutual interest? (This happened to me recently, and then after I followed up, this person said they weren’t interested in dating at the moment, which is totally cool and I’m not here to pressure anybody into anything, so I’m glad they said so - but I was so confused by it, since it seemed like they were interested earlier. But I guess people change their minds for whatever reasons too, and that’s okay.) I guess that’s where you find the risk, in the following up and reconnecting later.
