I saw this and I couldn’t help but to reblog it. I’m a strong advocate for valuing artists work. To me It’s a no-brainer, but for some reason it refuses to sink into the collective mind.
If you’ve commissioned me or asked for my rates you know that I charge a hefty sum for my time and expertise. That makes me loose a a large fraction of potential clients, some even get angry with me, quoting other artists rates at me, tries to trick me into believing they’re doing me a favor, that it’s a great opportunity, good exposure or otherwise try to convince me to work for almost nothing at all.
They try pretty much everything to get me to draw stuff for them. Anything except of course, to pay me what my time is worth.
Please don’t be that guy.

Welcome to Night Vale.
My headcanons for Cecil and
beautiful, perfectCarlos! If you didn’t expect me to interpret all the “perfect hair” comments to also refer to perfect facial hair, then I’m disappointed in you. Obligatory re-reading of my autobiography, "Beards and Me". I personally quite enjoy the idea that Cecil looks like a totally ordinary guy (except for his ghastly fashion sense) in the midst of all the weirdness.
Click the pictures to full view by the way, they look better that way!
Agreed. Having Cecil be a three-eyed eldritch tentacle demon just kind of cheapens the whole thing for me.
Love your take on these characters. :D
My obsession with Night Vale continues. I haven’t slept for days and have been subsisting on a soylent compound of used coffee grounds, clumps of my own hair, kidney beans and vanilla extract.
I’m pretty sure the ingestion of this concoction has granted me the ability to see extra-dimensional smells and tie my shoe-laces with my brain.
Anyway. My Cecil has a crooked grin and teeth to match. He is not malevolent, just a bit odd. He means well enough, I think, but can be a little manic.
I don’t subscribe to the less human head-cannons. No third eyes or horns for this one. Nuh-uh!
These sketches are me figuring out facial expressions for a little Night Vale comic I wanna do.
Carlos and Cecil!
Night Vale sketchdump!
I’m not 100% happy with my Carlos, yet, so I didn’t highlight him. :/
Currently up to episode 19A. As if things weren’t crazy enough… :O
