In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I don't really talk my fanworks up that often, and I constantly compare them to other people's works, so I figured this would be good for me.



I'm really proud of the way this podfic came out. I think I really got a handle on the character voices and did a pretty solid editing job. But I think my favourite part of the whole podfic is the five second intro where I inserted the sound of electric clippers. Give it a listen if you like!

The Count Dracula Fan Club

This is one of my fan arts that I really like to look at. It's really fun and it makes me smile, and I think I did a good job with the use of colours, branching out into bright colours that I'm usually allergic to. I also think I managed to emulate the atmosphere of a 1940's movie poster, which was the goal. \o/

Frank/Mikey Van Days

One of my favourite fanworks. I think the emotion in it is pretty cool and I still love the colours. Also I drew a background.

I've dl'd but not listened to Buzzed yet, but I can't wait. Also, I absolutely love all of your art and am totally envious of your multiple talents. \o/

I just listened to Buzzed the other day; it's so much fun.

I am stunned by your art every time. Your faces, especially, are just amazing.

I recently dove into all the podfic you have up on ao3, and was totally charmed*. Will listen to Buzzed next chance I get.

And dude, your art is impressive. Frank/Mikey <3 And the fonts and the bats and the cloud and all those details in the movie poster *hands*

I have a lot of feelings on the subject of comparisons. One thing to keep in mind is that you will always see your own work in a way that every other person cannot, because you're the only one who knows whatever your mind's eye saw that you tried to recreate. So you're aware of all the small ways in which the work you created deviates from that ideal. The rest of the world, unaware of that ideal, can only see the resulting artwork. And is probably impressed as hell.

I have learned that it is better for my overall mental health to draw comparisons to my own former self rather than to other people. Because a) the latter is comparing apples with oranges, seeing how we're all unique snowflakes and b) that way I can see my own progress much more clearly.

And that thing about progress is important. There's always room for improvement. But you've no doubt come a long way already, through practice and experience, and that is no small feat and deserving of recognition.

So my hat's off to you, fellow snowflake!

*and also grinning like a mad thing because you podded It's A Delicate Art. So much glee, I love it so much, and your reading was even more fun (the fingersnap was perfection). <3
