"The Person You Are Together"13.5 in. x 10.5 in.Watercolor and Gouache

The first of three pieces I painted for the Steven Universe | Adventure Time show at Gallery Nucleus.
"The Person You Are Together" depicts my favorite relationship in the series to explore, Amethyst and Pearl’s.  I love Opal as a character, she is gorgeous, powerful, and still cares greatly for Steven.  But I also love that she comes from an amalgam of Pearl and Amethyst, reflecting how something so beautiful can come from their bond.  But, this can only happen once they are able to stop fighting and see past each other’s differences, coming together in a harmonious, yet delicate, balance.

I made a rough translation for those curious, sorry for missing bits and paraphrasing.  Feel free to add in the bits I missed!  Hope I got most of it right.

Greg: Goodnight, Steven
(I can’t read the kanji in the next bubble)
Crystal Gems…
Pearl: Greg, where is Rose?
Greg: She disappeared.  She left this child.
Amethyst: Rose’s child!?
Pearl: (some exclamation I’m not sure of)
Amethyst: Rose’s Gem!  Garnet!  Pearl!  This kid is a Crystal Gem too!
Garnet: This child is coming with us.
Greg: What!?  But why…
Pearl: This child has Rose’s Gem, it’s natural that he lives with us
It’s probably best if you no longer get involved with Gems
Greg: Wait!  Please don’t take my son away, he’s the only family I have…
Garnet: Sorry/Too bad (not sure which translation)
Greg: Steven…

In Panel 1-2, Greg is saying “You’re so cute when you’re sleeping. Just like she was.”

In Panel 2-1, Pearl is saying “He’s an angel!”

(fyi まるで means “totally” or “completely”)

Here’s a clean image of the Steven Universe/Adventure Time tribute flier I got signed while we were at SDCC!
Front image was done by Rebecca Sugar herself, and the back images were done by Mimi Yoon, Wendi Chen, and Tait Howard.
It’s gonna’ be a phenomenal exhibition with more than two dozen artists from the show/comics, a couple of exclusive releases, and YES, Rebecca Sugar will be having a musical performance!!! So if you’re in the Los Angeles area, make it out to Gallery Nucleus August 9th!
Hope to see you there!

In fairness to Garnet a cake made of cake wouldn’t have been that much healthier

A better batter

no-more-ramen:

Ever watch tv shows and they’re doing the two bowl method? Dry with the dry, wet with the wet? Well, in a dorm situation or small space- that’s not an option. Or you just don’t have an extra bowl (or you’re like me and lazy). So! This tip is for you!

Cream your sugar and eggs. It’s what my mother taught me, and it works very well. When working with, lets say cookies. You want to melt your butter a little (soft or fully melted, but not boiling). Add your recipe’s sugar, and any other liquid based ingredients- such as vanilla extract, eggs, water, milk (salt in savory dishes). This is because it breaks down with the liquids easier, and makes for a smoother batter. Then you want to next add anything that’s under half a cup and mix it in till it’s smooth, then finish it off with, say your flour or anything over a half a cup. Each time you add something, just whip it up till it’s completely enfolded into the mixture (unless you are doing something that requires whipped or layered, then this tip isn’t as useful). 

This works great with, as stated- cookies, biscuits, pancakes, bread and the such. Anything that has a great deal of sugar or salt to be mixed into the batter before adding flour.

"I don’t like Steven Universe because it panders to tumblr"

What? What does that even mean?

It means “it has brown people and women with agency in it”

more of an airhorn than a dogwhistle
