hello sorry if this is a shallow and awkward (n borderline creepy heh) type of ask but where do you generally find your clothes? from the few photographs you've posted your style looks totally rad and i need help because i can't dress myself at all and ebay is not helping (im also terrified of spending large amounts money). Also your artwork is really really fucking cool and unique and deep (not an obligatory compliment i promise). ok ok i'm just vomiting all over this ask box so ima stop now.
omg no I love this I actually really love style and fashion
I’m terrified of spending large amounts of money too and tbh I get most of my clothes/shoes etc from local thrift stores (mainly Goodwill and stuff) and Asian fashion boutiques around my area which probably doesn’t help too much because they’re pretty area-specific, you just gotta sift
If I’m too busy to sift through those I usually hit up your general H&M or Burlington or something because I’m a tool
There’re sites like http://www.lovelywholesale.com/ (shipping though cries) that can provide cheap, cool pieces if ya into it
I also get some pretty sweet socks and tights from Daiso
I’m opening up my commission list to help pay for forseen vet bills. My cat, Freddie is sick and wasting away fast and I don’t want to lose him like I lost his brother. I’m planning on taking a week off from Oddité to work exclusively on commissions. I’m generally slow and I have a bunch of stuff I need to mail out, but this is something I’ll speed up for.
If you’d like to help by commission or discuss a commission, you can email me at DavidZissou at gmail.com.
-these past few months have been kind of solidifying the fact that illustration/art/comics is what I want to do for the rest of my life- a kind of settled “this is it and I have to work hard for it and kick my own ass” kind of mentality
-I was in my first exhibition at my university’s art museum woo yeah
-also scored a scholarship which is crazy and my chest feels weird every time I think about it (I have a lot to thank for my illustration professor this year)
-tabled at my first arts fest with one of my best friends
-moved out of my first apartment- cathartic
-I’m working on a bummer minicomic with Chris who wrote WITB so get pumped for that B) B) B)
-it’s summer now, finally, and I’ve started going to the park in the evenings with my little sister practicing cartwheels. It’s fun. Try a cartwheel some time if you can.
-I’m trying to be less afraid, less toxicly serious about the grand scheme of what I say or do. Don’t ever be too serious about yourself. Being serious about yourself sux cow ass
thank you- and thanks to anyone whose ever sent a kind message or anything that I never got to- I’m bad at answering messages like I’m bad at answering texts and I’m TRyiNG to BE BETTER. It means a bunch.

"Ya, this song’s a banger" - Brando Kento of Tough Stuff
I wrote a short catchy song about why I don’t really write short catchy songs and it takes unfair shots at no one in particular, but mostly asserts my own ego.
My self esteem waffles between, “wow I’m the best everyone should love me and everyone that doesn’t should go fuck themselves” and “oh jesus all of my friends only like me or anything I do because they pity me. I am a huge joke.”
