Anonymous asked: Why does Chris Evans always grab his left boob when he laughs?

Hello, anon, and thank you for the question.

This topic has been studied by by researchers for years. There are three prevailing theories that I will relay to you now.

1. It keeps him on the ground.

You may notice in the gif above that Chris’ leg starts to rise as he laughs, possibly a precursor to his entire body undergoing a sort of lift off due to his joy. Chris then employs his upper body strength to force himself to obey the laws of gravity.

2. To check on his physique.

As you may be aware, anon, it takes a lot of hard work to maintain a superhero body. Chris is concerned that in the time he has spent sitting down, sans working out or eating, he has lost muscle mass. Understandably, he feels the need to make sure that he is still a specimen.

3. Object permanence.

Object permanence is a term applied to the understanding that an object still exists even when you cannot see it. Chris closes his eyes when he laughs, making him unable to see that he has not disappeared. By grabbing his left boob, Chris knows that he has not somehow ceased to exist.

I hope this helps.

This makes me so happy. XD

4. Patriotism. He is Captain America, after all.

YES.

Also!

5. Breast Cancer Awareness. Self-exam! Men can get breast cancer, too!

#6: his boobs know when it’s raining.

Man, Sakuracon is in town and I wound up chilling in the Starbucks by the convention center. Y’alls have some faaaaantastic cosplays.

(There is a Tendo and Newt kicking it next to me. Eeeeeee.)

Hey y’all! Most of what I post up here is art, and that isn’t changing anytime soon. That said I do spend a fair amount of time writing when I’m not making draws. Rather than pester you fine folks with that junk, I’ve just cobbled together a separate blog.

So if any of you want to check out what terrors I inflict on the literary sphere, feel free to follow those whimsical adventures over at clausehoarder. Thanks!

terriblenerd asked: Dude, have you read The Strange Talent of Luther Strode? Same artist as new Ghost Rider, and the combination of lovingly-rendered gore and self-deprecating humor seem like it might be your thing. Publisher is Image.

I own both volumes and I’ve been trying to convince Brett to dress up like the titular character for SDCC.

On behalf of the internet, Brett, please do this.

terriblenerd and I decided to skip any post-con parties and opt for oven-bake pizza, Ninkasi, and Magnum GOLD?! ice cream bars. Pentecost apparently isn’t an ice cream fan.

I think Pentecost is just wondering why the makers of Magnum GOLD?! bars actually used an interrobang.

hobopoppins asked: My Newt and I came back to your table on Sunday to ask for some bone powder but you were MIA! I was so sad D;

OH NO! Well, you might have had some trouble getting the bone powder through customs. ;)

I plan on doing a convention Easter egg for every convention now since this one was so much fun. If you drop by the table next year I’ll do my best to remember to bring one copy of this year’s for you!

hannibal-chow-chow:

A plethora of pictures from the ECCC Pacific Rim meet ups!  (Let me know if you don’t want your pic up here for any reason and I’ll take it down.)

(Son of edit: also apologies if I took your pic but it isn’t up here, my camera is apparently blurry as shit and a lot of the pics are weaaakkkkk)

ALSO I MET MOST OF THESE PEOPLE AND THEY WERE FANTASTIC

(and looking to find some kaiju bone powder!)

Emerald City!

Oh man. What a weekend. 

This was my first time running my own table at a BIG convention. I’d helped out at Monkey Minion's table last year, and five years ago I had a run at Kumoricon, but never anything like this. I was totally unprepared. I ran on a grand total of thirteen hours of sleep between Thursday night and Sunday. One of you jerks gave me a nasty cold. 

AND I WOULD TOTALLY DO IT AGAIN IN A HEART BEAT. 

Everyone who came by our table was absolutely incredible and I am so honored that you’d take the time to look at my goofy art, and blown away that y’all spent money on it. Thank you so much for supporting me as an artist and nerding out with me over robots and monsters, and in many cases, tolerating my ghastly screeching over your stunning cosplays.

Thank you so much to my boothmates too, cultplanet and smiling-grouch and Nastasya, who put up with my scatterbrained ass all weekend with the grace and patience of saints, all the while dazzling the world with their own incredible work which everyone should look at immediately.

And thank you to David Willis and Gail Simone for not calling security on me when I came over and mumbled awkwardly and all but threw things at them and fled. They are both lovely, lovely people in real life, and unlike me and my  muppet-armed fidget-ry, both totally cool as cucumbers. They radiate coolness, like a tastefully-applied cologne made of social skills. It’s incredibly helpful when you lose the ability to do words. 

All in all, it was an incredible experience. Needless to say I’ve already signed on for next year. I’m also going to Rose City Comic Con, so if you’re a Northwest local, hopefully I’ll meet some of you again there!

In the meantime, thank you everyone for making this such a fantastic convention. May the next one be even better. <3
