I thought it'd be fun to recreate the cover all those years on...enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜…

Picked this awesome looking comic up from @JosephGlass today, its about lgbtq+ superheroes! Can't wait to give it a read ๐Ÿ™Œ

Enjoyed @MCMComicCon today - I cosplayed as a player from @OldSchoolRS and loved meeting other fans of the game!!

The cape was my first endeavour with sewing so I'm also surprised at how it turned out ๐Ÿคฃ

Excited to be going to @MCMComicCon on Saturday! Haven't been in years and I'm so ready to be surrounded by fellow nerds ๐Ÿ’™

If you spot me be sure to say hello!

This year's pumpkin goes out to the most influential father figure out there โค๏ธ

One of the most sensible takes on โ€˜cancel cultureโ€™ Iโ€™ve seen. Sensible, honest, smart. Iโ€™m posting the video directly as Times Radio tweeted it with a clickbait and somewhat misleading headline that unintentionally confirmed his point. More of this please.

Tis the season to be spooky ๐ŸŽถ

Bwa ha ha!

This awesome LEGO set of The Mighty Bowser is now in stock at the IGN Store! https://bit.ly/3xUJvvS

The DC character was the first trans superhero on TV, and now she'll be Fortnite's first trans character ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค

3 Year @blender progress. I decided to remake my first ever 3D model - a Rupee from The Legend of Zelda!

Trans Mission by @Alex_Bertie is a beautifully honest and genuine account of his experiences as a Trans Man. We'd absolutely recommend it for any grown up (or even young people) wanting to understand more about trans experiences ๐Ÿ’™

Every day I read evidence of us approaching the apocalypse...Happy Tuesday!

Going to @PhantomPeakUK next week and wanted to look the part ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿค 

Modelled and rigged my first humanoid in @Blender today! It's @Nate_Makes

Animation still has a way to go but a nice lil test!

Lately I've seen some fatigue from graphic designers who are seeing the same mockups over and over. I was just given access to the AI-image generator DALLE-2 and wanted to see how we can use this tool to generate *unique* mockups. The results are fascinating...๐Ÿงต

It's Stray release day! ๐Ÿˆ Wearing my @RIPNDIP abduction shirt to celebrate! ๐Ÿ˜…

Just one day left until we get our paws on Stray ๐Ÿฑ ๐Ÿพ

Why everyoneโ€™s suddenly obsessed with a two-year-old game about action figures: https://bit.ly/3nGVE1X

I've been screaming at my monitor for 20 minutes, and not for the normal reasons. I've been playing Tonsil Terror, a scavenger hunt controlled with WASD and screaming. https://trib.al/gg3qwE7
