Sidekick School by Hawaiian-Brit
Sidekick School
A few months ago I was hired by my university's school newspaper to draw comics and simple illustrations. The first job they gave me was to draw the cover for the "Finals and Graduation" issue. However, at the last second, they decided that the overall setting did not suit their theme well enough so they moved my illustration to the inside of the issue (which was completely fine with me). The point of this illustration was to have sidekicks attending class and getting ready to graduate into their respective heroes (or villians).

Boy, do I have a story to tell. I'm breaking this up into three sections (pre-Back story, backstory, and the actual story) to organize things better~ 

Pre-Back Story: so, last semester, I decided I needed a break from my drawing courses because I was kinda burnt out from the intense workload from them. I still needed credits from studio art classes as a requirement for my major (Which is Studio Art) so I decided to branch off and try ceramics. Tried beginning ceramics which was okay but I didn't really care for it. However, I was trying to avoid taking Advanced Drawing as much as possible because I heard horror stories so I decided, maybe a ceramics sculpture class would be a lot more fun. I was so so so SO wrong.

Back Story: There were three projects total for my sculpture class. I had problems with all of them but that was a given cause I'm just pretty awful with 3D art in general. For our final, we had to present all three pieces (finished) for a critique. My first and second project were fine but my third project....oh god.

Story: I made a vintage/old fashioned/rotary telephone for my final project (because my professor suggested it) and I fired the receiver and the telephone part separately. I had the receiver part of the phone finished and put in my locker while I waited for the telephone to be fired (cause the loading crew had a lot of big projects to fire up before finals). My telephone was finally fired and I noticed it had a bit of cracking on it cause I didn't attach the pieces well enough. It was too big to fit in my locker so I decided to leave it in the kiln room and I went to buy epoxy to fix the cracks. I came back and my project was gone. I thought, maybe they moved it to the rack outside like the other finished pieces or maybe someone just moved it to another place in the kiln room. Walked back and forth looking frantically and couldn't find it at all. Figured it probably broke completely due to the cracks and someone threw it out. A few days pass and I go into the classroom yesterday for my final critique, super nervous about having to admit that I don't have my third piece because I can't find it. Just then, I glance around the room and I see this girl with her pile of ceramics and what is sitting in the middle? My telephone. My heart dropped and started hammering at the speed of light. I watched her fiddle with it a little and I was just thinking, like "what do I even do in this situation??? Is she really gonna present it and take credit for it as her own piece in front of the whole class???"

I decided to bring out the receiver part and I set it on the table close to where she was sitting and I watched her as the critique went on. She happened to look at the receiver piece I had and I saw her eyes widen a bit but she stayed quiet. It was her turn to present and I was bracing for impact but she completely left out anything about my telephone. She just admitted that her final project blew up in the kiln and then she sat back down so I basically claimed the telephone back. I told everyone that I didn't have time to fix it up because it went missing for awhile but now, it was conveniently here. I didn't rat her out at all. After I finished my presentation, I sat down and I saw her staring at me from the corner of my eye and then she looked away.

so glad I'm done with this stupid class.

TL;DR: A girl stole my final project for my ceramics class and almost presented it as her own work before I caught her

A Conversation
Just a little Steven Universe drawing that I did yesterday afternoon while I was at school~
This took a lot longer than it should have because I was trying to work out a different coloring style than I was used to + I couldn't think of a proper background for the life of me LOL

This episode was awesome.

Thank You For 2014! by Hawaiian-Brit
Thank You For 2014!
This is just a fast drawing to accompany my 2014 review since I felt bad for not being around much this year ;w;
Hi guys! It's been a long time. Thanks so much for sticking with me all these years and especially for this past year even though I barely posted anything meaningful ^v^)/
Your support means a lot to me <3

Now, getting down to it, 2014 was definitely a year of ups and downs. On a global scale, it was a pretty awful year and my regards go out to all the people who suffered losses and hardships throughout the year. I really hope 2015 can be better and we can improve as human beings. On a personal level, I was fortunate enough to have a good year. I met a lot of new amazing people, strengthened bonds with old friends and shared a lot of laughs/memories with them, and I even got to finally start dating the boy of my dreams so I am very thankful ;v; :heart: I wasn't able to draw much this past year so I didn't see a major improvement in my art but I have become more confident/social/outgoing in general which has been a really nice trade off. I hope I can continue to become more social/confident/outgoing while improving on art in 2015!

I also read a ton of books, played a ton of video games and watched a ton of shows haha it was pretty awesome

Anyway, thats all I really have to say! Here's looking to a great new year!

The Essentials

Name: Brittany
Nickname: Britt/Brit or eds, usually (I have a lot of random nicknames too. My sister calls me "Britain" sometimes, for example)
Location: Hawaii!
Age: 20
Height: 4'11" / 149.86 cm (apparently ?)
Zodiac sign: Aries
Any pets: I have two dogs: one is a husky/lab and the other is a sharpay/golden retriever~
Favourite thing about yourself: Um...hmm...I  guess my favorite part about myself is that i'm really easy to please? Like, if i'm in a bad mood or something, it takes very little to cheer me right back up. 
Worst habit: Probably my procrastination or my nail biting (although i'm getting better at not biting)
Fun fact: I played volleyball for 7 years~
My team was undefeated and took championships two years in a row during my last two years playing.

Identity, Sexuality & Personality

Gender identity: Female~
Sexual preference: Men, I guess? I think?
Romantic preference: I date for personality but I think i'm a lot more...inclined to lean towards men?
"Kinsey Scale" score: ???
Relationship status: Dating my boyfriend Jace for about 4 and a half months ;w; :heart:
Myers/Briggs type: I believe i'm INFJ
Hogwarts house: Ravenclaw

Routine

"Early Bird" or "Night Owl": It actually varies sometimes but I have to ability to be both~

Bath or shower: Shower

First thought in the morning: "I wish it was night time so I could go back to sleep again"
Last thought before falling asleep at night: I usually think about my boyfriend because he's almost always the last person I talk to //// (unless i'm skype calling with friends all night)

School/Work

Do you work or are you a student: I do both, actually~ I'm a full time student but I also work part time doing data entry for a medical billing company
What do you do good: I think i'm good at getting into A LOT of series LOL. I read a lot of books, play way too many games, and I watch a lot of shows too and I try to learn everything about each of them so I can talk about them with more people and such LOL (I don't think this answer relates to this topic at all, oops.)

I guess, in regards to school and work and stuff, i'm really good at memorization and test taking? Plus I take a lot of notes and stuff at work and at school.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years: I hope i'll have graduated with some sorta degree by then LOL I also hope that i'll be out of my parent's house and that my art will be good enough for me to make a pretty good living on commissions or freelance work. Part of me also wants to fly out to an art school on the mainland to study illustration or something.

Habits (Do you…?)

Drink: No, not at all. I was exposed to alcohol when I was really young and, because it tasted so bad to me that first time, I never touched it since.
Smoke: Nope
Do Drugs: Nope
Exercise: Ahaha....no;;;; but I do tend to walk a lot during the school year (around campus and stuff) and sometimes my sister and I play dancing games on our Xbox
Have a go-to comfort food: Fast food fffffff;;;;;;;;;;
Have a nervous habit: I bite my nails, giggle too much, and my legs start to shake uncontrollably. I also have a tendency to hyperventilate but I don't think that's a habit

What is your favourite…?

Physical quality (in yourself): Eyes 
In Others: Uhhh, smile~
Mental/emotional quality (in yourself): I'm really laid back and not easily offended. I usually laugh everything off and it takes a lot for me to actually get angry or even stay angry. I usually get over things really fast.
Food: Crab or chicken
Drink: Soda omgggg. But mostly Dr. Pepper, Vanilla coke and regular Pepsi
Animal: Rabbits, foxes or just baby animals in general
Artist/Band/Group: Way too many to list. I usually just say Maroon 5 though because I do really love them and it's kind of an inside joke
Author/Poet: Khaled Hosseini (for novels in general), Leigh Bardugo (for YA novels in general). Not 100% sure about fave poets 
TV Show: American Horror Story, Supernatural, and Orange is the New Black so far (in terms of actual series). I also ADORE any show that has Gordon Ramsay in it + cooking shows in general and also shows/documentaries about real life murder investigations and stuff.
Actor/Actress: Jennifer Love-Hewitt, Ariana Grande, Ashley Johnson, Ellen Page....uh....I can't really think of female actresses right now LOL For actors i'd say Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Chris Evans probably
