System Failure
silvermender:

A suuuuper delayed crayoncrunch for jim-moroniarty of their amazing characters Chance and Gavin, the one handed cop and a not-so neurotypical cop best friends from Copstory.  The combined music tracks from these just gave me a vibe for them hanging out somewhere particularly busy and a fair just clicked for some reason. Blame this one the most 
ughi’m hideously sorry for being so late, with the combined busy from internship + moving to USA it’s been two bloody months. Scanned this from sketchbook a while ago but just managed to slap on a color scheme that didn’t make me wince til now—Don’t think i’ve ever tackled backgrounds before so this was a bit of a learning/trying experience
and bonus attempts at another of their characters, Philip Troutdale (EVERY SINGLE ONE IS DIFFERENT)

Aaaah sneaking in on tumblr was SO WORTH IT! I love it! :D
That picture is just amazing, it really feels like a busy fair (and it’s so interesting that that song inspired it - I listen to it a lot but imagine different stuff, the more you know!) and the details and expressions are spot-on, Chance totally is the grumpier one out of the two.
And awww bonus Philip! :D Pssst there will be a comic about him soon. Soon.
This really made my day! And I don’t mind the waiting - it was totally worth it, you didn’t forget or anything, life stuff happens! :]

Some people, they just fuckin’ love to hate. Some people fuckin’ walk around the fuckin’ Garden of Eden fuckin’ moaning about the lack of fuckin’ mobile reception!
Malcolm Tucker (via jim-moroniarty)
I’m happiest when I’m offensive. I have a desire to tear people in half. I want to move people out of the suburbs of their mind. I want them to suffer, to feel something real. I have a lot of anger. I want to hurt people. At least a little.
Re: Dawkins

coelasquid said: Honestly I’ve never been big into Dawkins, like I’m an atheist but I feel like he perpetuates the sexist, gross stereotypes about atheists that turn people off. I watched a documentary he made that was basically him being smug and harassing people.

queengwenevere said: I think I lost respect for Dawkins years ago. For every intelligent thing he says, he seems to spew something else that’s truly obnoxious.

I read a book of his when I was in my freshman year of uni maybe and I thought it was smart but man, someone who is able to write any book should really be better at filtering their bullshit on twitter. Think before you type and all hsadfgashdfgasdhgf I dunno why it makes me so angry, I never was a big fan but it’s just so punchable.

Son I am disappoint

If you want to have any respect for a celebrity (including scientific ones) it’s best not to pay attention to their twitter.

Rules: Just insert your answers to the questions below. Tag at least 5 followers

Name: Olga
Nickname: Oly (I wish I had a cooler one but I don’t so Oly will do)
Birthday: August 7
Gender: Female
Sexuality: I think bisexual but my mother says I’m clearly asexual \o/ DONNA I DON’T WANT TO MATE I JUST WANT A MATE
Height: short - I’m bad at numbers so I don’t remember it and don’t have anything to measure myself with right now
Time Zone: Adventure Time Moscow Time
What time and date is it there: Saturday, August 23, 10:38 AM
Average hours of sleep I get each night: I feel like a wreck unless I get at least 7, so on good days it’s between 7 and 9, on bad days I’ve been known to get by on 3-4 hours and then crash for 10 or 11 within the next few days
The last thing I Googled was: “skivvy” I was getting “skivvy” and “to skive” mixed up in my head and I wanted to see if they were related. Whee, narrow escape there, I could have been researching something medical for Cop Story!
My most used phrase(s): I’m not sure. I soft of abuse the Doctor’s catchphrases and add profanities.
First word that comes to mind: My brain is weird so for some reason it was “dumbwit”
What I last said to a family member: "Night" if we’re talking humans and "Here’s your morning coffee to bed" if we’re talking pets - we have a running joke that the rats can’t wake up properly unless I give them some snack in the morning.
One place that makes me happy:  Home, I guess. Other places make me irritated sooner or later because I can’t be alone there.
How many blankets I sleep under: One or none in the summer, two in winter.
Favourite beverage(s): Doctor Pepper, coffee, anything sufficiently caffeinated comes third.
The last movie I watched in the cinema: Tomorrow I will be able to say Deep Breath (I’m going to the noon re-run in cinemas since the episode ends around midnight in my time zone). But last movie was The Day Of The Doctor - it was such a good experience that I couldn’t make myself watch anything else in cinemas because it wouldn’t live up to that. ONLY CAPALDI CAN DO THAT
Three things I can’t live without: Cop Story (drawing, writing it and just having those characters in my head), BBC shows, the Internet
Something I plan on learning: British Sign Language
A piece of advice for all my followers: Learn to be your own help. There can be people in your life who care but sooner or later you’ll end up in a situation where you’ll have to pick yourself up without any help of a friend or a shrink or a teacher or a relative. Learn to patch up your own wounds - if you have anyone to help you it will be better, if you don’t at least you won’t bleed out.
You all have to listen to this song: Cripples at Christmas because I’m predictable as hell
My blog(s): copstory and two blogs for comics only copstorycomic and copstorycomics and this one, of course

This is just a teaser but I am working on the comic properly again so I felt I might as well upload it now. For a character that appeared on only a couple of pages and had only a handful of lines O’Kane never felt gone and forgotten. His death shaped the events, left a hole everyone else was forced to walk around. He isn’t a ghost in a way Ghost Copper is but he also isn’t completely gone. Sometimes I wonder how I would tell a story without his death and each time I see that it would be a very different story.Some say there are fixed points in time and nobody should have the power to change them. And some say that life is a flat circle and you are reborn in the same life that you’ve always been born into but don’t remember so you make the same mistakes over and over again. I just know that lives can get fucked up by stupidest things - like a cocky Irishman walking in a wrong door on a bad day. There is likely to be a proper cover and then pages and I hope to do it soon - I know I don’t want to be seeing that face for the rest of my life.

Teaser for the next part of the main plot.

Comics coming soon. As in sooner than before.

I literally grew a year older while working on this (I blame the heatwave). I hope the next update will happen sooner! In case you can’t read Christmas’s speech he said “Lourdes”. In case you don’t know what Lourdes is, here’s a link. But really Teague’s expression in that panel tells you all you need to know. When I start worrying that I’m a soppy sentimental writer who is too soft on the characters I remind myself that I have a character named Christmas who is a teenager living between two divorced parents, one of whom is an fanatical Catholic and the other is one of those parents who try to make their kids succeed at whatever career path they failed at (in this case acting). I mean come on, more than that and it’s Charles Dickens territory. I was listening to Bowling For Soup at some point of inking this and thought that Critically Disdained is a good description of Teague’s attitude, or at least the attitude he tries to keep up. We’re not here to change the world, we’re here to laugh at others… Jarvis is reading Loud Era over there - if you’re a cool kid like Jarvis you should read it too.

Look who finally updated.

Sad.

And another thing I was trying not to talk about but-

It really irks me when people say suicide is WRONG. I don’t mean that anyone should say “yeah, right on!” or anything like that but I think what needs to be said is that suicide is SAD.

It’s sad you had to be at that point of your life.

It’s sad you couldn’t see any other option.

It’s sad nobody who could help was close enough to help.

It’s sad it has to be that way.

But don’t you dare to say it’s WRONG. Don’t you dare to judge a person who just took their life.
