Art: Juliet, Melissa, and the Roaring Twenties [Sep. 26th, 2008|08:44 pm]
Roseview: Reloaded

I've been on a period clothing kick of late, and if anyone was born for flapper clothes it was Juliet, with her theatrical taste and bony hips. I meant to do a complete set, but menswear just depresses me:



And the same pictures, oldified...Collapse )
P.S. In the 1920s, Juliet smoked like a chimney. Melissa read lots of Jane Addams and always felt a little uncomfortable when she showed too much calf. THE END.

I figure if we're going for "remorseful," Melissa is far and away our best bet. She has Puss-in-Boot eyes! (Hidden by bangs, but, you know. WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME.)

This is just a quick note from Taf to say that, um, as y'all (you very small y'all) might have guessed, this semester has kicked my and Merc's asses and Roseview has fallen by the wayside. We were possibly foolhardy trying to make solid plans when Merc could never have predicted how time consuming her college schedule would be and when I could have no way of knowing that this semester would truly be the semester from hell.

We haven't given up on Roseview, but we're talking about making it a vacation-only project.

I mean. We weren't just talking about it, but I'm in finals and wanted to procrastinate by doodling Melissa, so I decided to randomly announce it now.

I was going through old Roseview pictures, and came across this one, for our last episode "Tradition!":



Thought I, "Oh my GOD, I could do that so much better now."

Well. The art's better, but whether any of them other than Melissa looks a day over 19 is up to you:



...I haven't done any homework today.

Profiles: The GBSA, September 2001 [Sep. 23rd, 2007|04:48 pm]

Emma Bonner and Elijah Yoshida, Roseview's wackiest sophomores (there was an official poll), co-founded the GBSA during their freshman year. These fanatical straight allies enjoy eating Ben & Jerry's, watching musicals, painting each other's fingernails, and wishing they were fabulous enough to be gay. They're each other's heterosexual life partners only without, you know, being heterosexual together. That'd be weird.



Judy Cunningham is Roseview's newest recruit from the United Kingdom. She misses real chips, Manchester United, and people who speak proper English, but she's found a community in Roseview's GBSA. Judy is up for all hijinks, escapades, and shenanigans.



Though James has always boasted (not entirely unjustly) of having movie star good looks, he's getting tired of all the Spiderman jokes. He'd like to protest that he came first, but it's not really true. James joined the GBSA for Judy, but he stayed for the gays.



Mary joined the GBSA to advocate for gay rights, discuss queer issues in the context of Roseview Academy and New York state, and come to terms with her bisexuality. She, uh, stayed because she figured if she stuck it out long enough she could outlast Emma and Elijah? We mostly feel bad for Mary.

BONUS:



Grace, a shy, unassuming middle-schooler, has yet to join the Upper School-restricted GBSA or, for that matter, show interest in any club or extracurricular activity. All that will change this year.

(...We Grace.)

(And there's Eric, but he's in 8th grade and isn't in this season, so I'll leave him aside for now.)

I just...really, really enjoy drawing Benny chagrined. I know, I know -- that's what Mark is for. But it's just not the same.

So I've been drawing a lot lately. It happens.



If Roseview had a semiformal dance, this would be Melissa at said dance.

This marks the first time I have ever drawn Melissa with long hair, unbraided.

And possibly the first time I've drawn her in a dress. (I felt bad because I always gave Juliet the interesting pretty interesting outfits.)

First, Michelle Gellar, the Student Council secretary and Sophomore representative, who has a heart competitive streak as big as all outdoors. She's probably already kicked your ass.


Second, what can more or less be counted a preview for 1.04 ("Benny").  Nothing gives me greater joy than pining!Benny and oblivious!exhibitionist!Jack. The conversation between Merc and me went basically as follows:

Taf: And Jack is all unembarrassed and NAKED ALL THE TIME
Taf: Because he has, like, FIVE THOUSAND SIBLINGS
Taf: And Benny's all "I hate life"
Taf: And takes to changing in Mark's room, because this is SO NOT HAPPENING
Merc: ahahahaha yes

In the background: a poster for "Fight Club", which Jack made his older brother Tim take him to nine times in theatres; Batman and Robin, kicking it old school.

(Benny isn't really about to cry; he just hates God.)

What Jack did for his summer break.



I love Jack's family, but I hate their hair.

Merc's Note: Hey everybody! Uh. By which we mean ... anybody! Welcome to the first of five chapters that together comprise Roseview: Origins, wherein we choose to use really Marvelesque titles for what is essentially a brief reintroduction to each of our five main characters. As somebody who'll be leaving home for the first time EVER in just a few weeks, this is especially fun and pertinent for me to write. So enjoy!
