starfish*butthole: sketches n' whatnot


Talia * 28 * geek * gamer* feminist * perverted porn peddling artist & connoisseur * writer *

I don't remember the origin of the term "starfish butthole", but my design professor in college used it to refer to really bad work we put on the walls for critique.

Thus, this is my really bad work. And some not-so-bad WIPs that might look pretty later on. And things that inspire me, like awesome illustrations, music, and graphic design work. And geeky things like World of Warcraft and various animes I'm in to. And porn. Lots of that probably. And ranting. And other randomcity I see fit to toss up BECAUSE I DO WHAT I WANT.

WARNING: I like sexy things of all kinds so beware of occasional NSFWish goodies!

Hexagon design elements are one of my favorite geometric visual themes, not only for evoking apiculture, but also, by extension, hive-construct futurism themes in science fiction. They have more angular interest than a square or a rectangle, but with interlocking stability and tessellating properties. And the dipper wand built into the cap is a stroke of genius.

Absolutely mouthwatering

A very good reference for Writers, too.  The color of a room, or someone’s clothing can convey emotion or a state of being, or even set the tone for a setting or a situation.

Colors often come with ingrained connotations - they certainly have strong meanings in Asian cultures, and in European cultures they have intrinsically understood meanings.

Red - passion, blood, anger, fire (for example)

This is going in my writer’s journal.

Voting has started! Help make this tshirt a reality!

That went up far faster then I expected! My heart skipped a beat when I got the notice. Please vote for me if you like this design and want to see it made into a shirt, or if you just plain like me and want to make me happy! If the design wins, the money I will receive will be added to my cat fund, in order for me to afford having kitties in the future!

All reblogs would be SUPER APPRECIATED!

but also…GIVEAWAY BONUS!
I know some extra incentive might sweeten the pot! So if this design wins, I am going to give one shirt away for free to someone who reblogs this, raffle style! I can’t check if everyone who reblogs also actually votes, but if you don’t vote it also won’t win! So seems fairly straightforward doesn’t it? Vote if you want a shirt!

Thank you all so very very much, this is the first time I’m trying something like this and I hope for the best!

Help my babbu out here! vote for her rockin’ shirt!!

This shirt is awesome and I want it so GO VOTE!

Quick ambigram design for Night Vale, because it seemed appropriate and that weird little town deserves it.

This is some gorgeous work. Ambigrams are super hard what witchcraft did you employ to do this D8

Evolution of the Batman Logo, 1940 - Present

According to this infographic, the logo of Batman has been redesigned 30 times since its inception in 1940. This graphic, created by the design firm Calm the Ham, traces the evolution of the Batman logo from its earliest iterations in the comics of the 1940s through its use in Adam West’s delightfully campy TV take in the ’60s, Frank Miller’s dark graphic novels in the ’80s, and George Clooney and his nipple suit in the ’90s, and ends with the multimillion-dollar Dark Knight films today. The genus is always quite clearly bat, but unique species abound.
