Rupert Blanchard is sitting on what was once a pile of junk. The plywood top of this cabinet used to be a hoarding on a building-site, one of the drawers comes from a Victorian shop-counter, another is from a 1970s G Plan sideboard, and under his leg is part of a fire-safety sign of the kind he saw in the park as a child. In his hands all of them have found a renewed purpose. The furniture he makes is greater than the sum of its parts.
Blanchard is 34 and originally from Wiltshire. In 1999, a graphic-design course at Central St Martin’s brought him to London, where the streets were paved “not with gold, but with rubbish”. He started collecting the city’s leftovers, reimagining and refashioning them into furniture so distinctive that his style was quickly imitated; his designs remain highly sought after. Now his days are spent scouring demolition sites, house clearances, scrapyards and the like to find objects he can put to new use.
He has rules. “A material cannot be usable in its present state, it must be undervalued and no longer fit for its original purpose.” And, ultimately, it must be destined for landfill. Breaking up an object for its parts is not acceptable.

…Things have been pretty touchy and perpetually on the edge of a complete mental and physical collapse since June… But it is starting to look like things might actually work out right now… I’ve been through alot since then,most of which I’m not comfortable going into, but its intense by many standards. Maybe I’ll put my story on tumblr when things feel more secure. But for now I feel like;

If you’re going to read just one wonderful Adventure Time write-up today (and you should), make it this one by Maria Bustillos. In it, she talks with the key creative gang of Pen, Adam, Pat, Kent, Rebecca, Nick, and Jack, making for a fairly definitive overview of the series. Read it here. Thanks, Maria!

The resolution of each eleven-minute episode is anything but tidily triumphant; each one is as likely to end on a question or a joke as on an answer. Yet one comes away satisfied, a little bit the way one might at a David Lynch movie. The narrative is endlessly malleable, and includes all the possibilities granted by the existence of wizards and magical creatures, time travel, and a huge, ever-evolving cast. It’s a canvas and a story big enough for dozens of artists to make their own way. Even the drawing style is inconsistent, handmade-feeling; longtime fans may learn to detect the hand or voice of a favorite storyboard artist or writer. The goal of the show seems to be exploration, not uniformity.

SO IT HAS COME TO THIS (again)

As it says in the description, I haven’t been able to land a job for the summer, which basically means that I’m stuck studying the entire summer just to get the minimal financial support, which just barely covers my rent.

My aim here is to collect some money to make my summer less miserable and to make sure I will always have enough money for food and rent.

So here’s the deal:

I will draw pretty much anything, but I do have my limits. e.g I will not draw anything that is directly meant to be offensive towards a person or a group. If you’re not sure if your prompt is crossing my limits, you can always hit me up with a message and ask me! (you can always go anon on tumblr winkwink)

Also, remember that I am currently studying, so I won’t be able to work on anything that is extremely time sensitive. I will finish your commission as fast as I can, obviously, but going on lectures and studying comes first. Everything else has to be flexible, which is why I can’t work on any tight schedules.

About payment:

I’m working with a set price, which means that the price won’t change once I start drawing (unless you want me to work on the picture excessively even after I’ve sent you the final image - but even in those cases I’m going to negotiate possible extra payments before I start doing anything, so we’ll always be on the same page when it comes to money.)

I won’t ask you to send me any money before I have finished the drawing. This is because I want to be a good person and not take your money “for nothing”. (Not that there’s anything wrong with taking payments in advance, but I just feel better knowing I’m getting paid after working on something.)

I’m only accepting payments via PayPal. (OR If you’re a Finn you can send the money with bank-to-bank payment)
