Summer Commissions!!! get excited!
Since my style has changed quite a bit, I thought it was time to revamp this whole deal, and here it is. The “detailed basic bust” was basically the only thing people commissioned of me previously, so that’s still an option here, and at the same price as before.
ALSO, something I forgot to mention in the rules, each version will have a little animation in it, something very small like a floating bit of text, etc.
If you have any questions you can always send me a message via my tumbler here (be warned though, tumblr sometimes eats messages), BUT, I’d like to ask you, if you would please also always send me a mail at
with all the details included. That mail will work as some kind of receipt, because we ARE dealing with money here, and it helps me keep a neat list of all the commissions I need to do.
The yellowface of “The Mikado” in your face
Remember when someone pranked a San Francisco TV station into reporting that the names of the Asiana plane crash pilots were “Captain Sum Ting Wong” and “Wi Tu Lo”?
After the station KTVU realized its mistake, it fired three producers.
But in Seattle, at least one theater plans to spend the summer guffawing about how Asian names sound like gibberish.
“The Mikado,” a comic opera, is playing at the Bagley Wright Theatre from July 11 to July 26, produced by the Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society.
Set in the fictional Japanese town of Titipu — get it? — the opera features characters named Nanki Poo, Yum-Yum and Pish-Tush. It’s a rom-com where true love is threatened by barbaric beheadings.
All 40 Japanese characters are being played by white actors, including two Latinos. KIRO radio host Dave Ross is in the cast.
It’s yellowface, in your face.
We are protesting this!
Seattle folks come together!
