Hello there!
My name is Donna and I like to draw things. Grab a cup of tea, take off your shoes and welcome to my humble Tumblr abode.
Feel free to drop me a line via my ask box, but just be aware that I don't often reply to anons on my blog, so please email me instead if it's important.



Gather around the bonfire and trace the constellations!

Once in a while we will be releasing supplementals: small things we put together quickly and simply and release to you. Stripped down, experimental, fun stuff. Think of them as our b-sides and demos. It’s not a sneak peak at the full game, or even part of it. Very little of it is indicative of Night In The Woods proper. It’s of questionable canon. It’s weird. But it’s here, and it’s now yours. Enjoy, and happy holidays!

-Scott & Alec

Would you like to go stargazing with the Night in the Woods gang? Scott and Alec just released this great new NitW mini-game, Longest Night. It’s lovely!

Cecil Gershwin Palmer, past and present.
I always have way too much fun with his 50’s clothes.

Is it too early to start drawing humanized versions of the Night in the Woods characters? Naaaw! But you should check out the Kickstarter for this game, because it’s going to be rad!


Hey! We’re Alec Holowka and Scott Benson, and we’re making a game! In fact, we are Kickstarting it THIS VERY MOMENT. Check it out!

Check out the preview video and Kickstarter for this amazing new in-development indie game - Night in the Woods!!
I think this one has Tumblr-love written all over it tbh, so go show it some if you can afford to! ( ^ 3^)b

How have you been enjoying Pokemon X&Y? Serena is probably one of my favourite pkmn protagonists in a long while (Aside from Touko of course!).

Give me a sec. I just need to recover from that new episode. 
*clutches chest and breathes into paper bag* Oh, Cecil Gershwin Palmer, what did that town do to you?!

I drew how I imagined Cecil’s parents, wearing soft meat crowns, and a very quick sketch of teen Cecil (Teencil?) (ʘ‿ʘ) Until I can draw him properly (I figure his hair isn’t very white yet, since he’s so young.)



We want to make more Bee and PuppyCat cartoons - even a whole series of them! Help us by contributing to a Bee and PuppyCat Kickstarter. 

This Kickstarter is the fastest way to get you a series of Bee and PuppyCat cartoons. It is also the best way to help Frederator give Natasha Allegri, the creator of Bee and PuppyCat, the most creative freedom. And you can get some awesome Bee and PuppyCat stuff that will not be available anywhere. Your help is crucial.
Thank you,
-The Cartoon Hangover Team

Lets do this!


THE BOOKS ARE HERE!!!!!!!!!!!! *screams with relief sklghlsdk*

Finally………;_________; And it was worth the wait because quality turned out PERFECT. Perfect colors, perfect tones, perfect everything.  I’m so happy omg…TAT♥ ♥ ♥

I’m throwing in some goodies for you all as an apology for the extended delay. ♥ I had bookmarks made which will be included with every book. I’m also sending out the remaining goodies from my store (pocket mirrors, postcards and badges) but I don’t have enough for everyone so they’ll be included according to the order of buyers (sorry ><;).


My incredibly talented friend, Lexi, finally has her stunning Bleach doujinshi in print and now on sale! I was honoured to be able to contribute some guest art to this amazing book, along with a bunch of other really cool artists.

I was also lucky enough to be able to read the whole thing a couple of months ago before it was printed and honestly, it’s just absolutely beautiful! *A*
Go check it out! 

Fixing up the homestead

So I just finished installing and customising my new Tumblr layout, but it seems most of my links, including ‘ask’ and ‘tags’ were broken for a couple of days. Thanks to everyone that emailed me to let me know! They’re fixed now.

Darling, you are perfect, in all of your imperfections.
(Maybe mild spoilers for the live show? Like, you might not get the joke if you haven’t seen it yet. ^^;)

Painting this one was fun! ^^

— Anonymous: Did you end up making those stationary items with your beautiful mori girl art on them? I love your art and I'm always looking for pretty stationary for school. Do you sell online or are you planing to ? I'm in Australia and would love to purchase some of your stationary for school

Hi there! Yes I did. :) All of the stationary and comics I made were on sale at Japan Expo / Comic Con in Paris and the left overs are now for sale in my store: ~~:: HERE :: ~~

Perfection is not real. Perfection is not human. Carlos is not perfect- no, even better- he is imperfect. Everything about him, and us, and all of this is imperfect. And those imperfections in our reality are the seams and cracks into which our outsized love can seep and pool. —

This is a really beautiful message and one I wish a lot more people took to heart.


Cecil Baldwin and his new flower crown

Flower crown made by crispypata!

Oh. Be still my heart. This beautiful, precious man. I can’t. *^*
Also Joseph Fink and Meg the proverb girl in the background! <3

Some NV paintings. Approaching something like my head-canon with Cecil now, thanks to my NV goddesses, airinn and littleulvar.

Cecil and Carlos have their freaky-romantic first date at Gino’s.
One off-canon, Cecil and Carlos changing a flat in the desert (or not…). Cecil drives a 1960’s Rambler in my head to contrast with Carlos’ sporty Hybrid Coupe. <3
Feral Dogs being libertarian street artists. Twist on a Banksy.

Nathan Stewart-Jarrett as Newt Scamander

I look back across the years to the seven-year-old wizard who spent hours in his bedroom dismembering Horklumps and I envy him the journeys to come. […] That grubby Horklumps-encrusted boy would track, as he grew up, the beasts described in the following pages.

Okay, I don’t usually reblog gifsets, but I’m so excited about the new Potter-verse movie (Hufflepuff protag!!) and this is beautiful. I would absolutely love for Nathan Stewart-Jarrett to play Newt Scamander. Oh, he would just be so perfect! Please make it so, powers that be!
