Frequently Asked Questions - 2018

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 10, 2015, 12:03 PM



:tea:  What should I call you? Give me a name, woman!  
I respond to “Mara”, “Acacia”, “Acaciathorn”, and “you there!” I also salivate whenever someone rings a bell.

:tea:  How did you learn to draw?
Osmosis. I printed out my favorite pictures from the internet, then repeatedly banged my head against them until the relevant knowledge seeped into my brain. In other words, self-taught.

:tea:  Help! I’m trapped in a dungeon, and I can’t escape unless you tell me which tools you use to create your art. Only the truth shall set me free!
Opencanvas 4.5 for lineart; Adobe Photoshop CC for coloring. My tablet is an ancient slab of stone from the early 2000s. Good luck with your escape, my friend.

:tea:  How long does it take you to finish a drawing?
Depends. Sometimes, I manage to complete a piece within a couple of hours. Other times, whole empires rise and fall in the time it takes me to get my ass in gear. And I do mean that literally. I have an actual gear on my ass which controls my speed settings.

:tea:  Do you take requests? Will you fuel my delusions of grandeur by giving me free shit?
No. I do, however, occasionally hold free art raffles for my watchers. This is because I love you and value our friendship.  

:tea:  How about commissions, then?
I’m chronically ill, so my commission work is sporadic. To check availability, vigorously shake the nearest 8-ball, then send me a note.

:tea:  Let us partake in the joys of artistic camaraderie by doing an art trade or collab!
Tell me what you have in mind. I will forward the request to my muse, and together we can await her decision.

:tea:  I want you to draw my characters…DOING THE DO :hump:
Sorry friend, but porno is a no-no. Too many fluids and weird angles involved. I love drawing romantic crap though, so couples art is always welcome.   

:tea:  I would like to stalk you more extensively. What are some of your internet haunts?

:tea:  Oh dear. I have all this money, and nothing to spend it on. Whatever shall I do?
Today is your lucky day! I just so happen to have a Patreon 
Patreon (2017, round) Icon ultramini by linux-rulesaccount, and I would be happy to take some of that pesky cash off your hands.

:tea:  Life is a bleak and purposeless endeavor - all the comedy and tragedy of the ages is just a farce played out upon the stage of an unseeing cosmos.

I agree. Would you like some tea?

I read this before going to work and I had an amazing image come to mind, picture this. An absolutely adorable French maid with a tray of wine glasses and she trips and falls into a stud muffin of a British butler who happens to be carrying his master's tea.

How do I become your friend? (Not for an art trade, I just really admire you!)
You've been one of my fave artists for a while now.

As cheesy at it sounds, we got your back. 

Sometimes, both empathy and sympathy need to work together.

During the Night Vale mayoral election, did you vote for Hiram McDaniels or the Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home?

My friend Tim and I actually went to the second anniversary live show. We decided to vote so that we'd cancel each other out - he voted for the faceless old woman, I voted for Hiram.
