This is the main reason for my general annoyance with lack of size regulation in the fashion industry…
men’s pants are labeled by waist and inseam measurement. women’s pants are labeled by voodoo. even though i do not buy women’s pants, i can recognize this as objectively dumb.
THE NOTES ON THIS
because i can’t stress this enough. this is why i don’t let the numbers get to me. as jumpingjacktrash so eloquently said “women’s pants are labeled by voodoo.”
so when boys make fun of girls taking forever to shop and trying everything on
WE FUCKING HAVE TO OR NOTHING WILL FIT

raitsui asked: Regarding the Dreamworks program, do you have any tips for resume set up or how to set up portfolios? I recently graduated but it was in studio art, so I don't have any storyboards from my classes - I thought I'd whip some up though! Any tips for people with a pretty shallow resume?
Hello!! I’m going to answer this one publicly because I’ve received several questions about portfolio/resume recently.
This program is designed for recent graduates/folks with little to no industry experience, so don’t worry if you don’t have a lot on your resume. The thing that will get you the job is not your resume, it’s the PORTFOLIO. Focus on the boards themselves, because that is what they’re going to be looking at!! DWA is seeking folks whose portfolios show that they have the passion and skills necessary to storyboard at a professional level! Try to make sure you’re submitting feature-style boards (rather than TV…so no arrows, etc.). The portfolio should be 90-95% storyboards/sequential art, with no more than 1-2 pages of design/life drawings (and even those should have some sort of narrative to them! So no 3-hour, super rendered drawings of nekkid people, or watercolor still lifes. Choose short gesture drawings that show character and attitude! Costumed model drawings are great for this).
Hope this helps! And good luck!

Napoleon verses the Bunnies
After signing the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807 Napoleon decided to celebrate by hosting a rabbit hunt, entrusting the arrangements to his chief of staff Alexander Berthier. Berthier gathered several hundred rabbits for the hunt, and invited some of the most important men in the French Empire. In addition to the various VIP’s present at the hunt, there were also a number of gun bearers, beaters (a person who flushes game by beating the brush with a stick), and game keepers. The plan was that when the gamekeeper released the rabbits they would scatter in all directions, running for their lives as the hunters shot the rabbits at will. There was one hitch, Berthier had not gathered wild rabbits but purchased tame domesticated bunnies. When the bunnies were released, rather than running for their lives they all dashed at the hunting party, believing they were about to be fed by the man wearing the big hat. Napoleon formed a skirmish line but the horde of bunnies swarmed the party, tugging at their pants and climbing up their legs. Sensing defeat as a bunny climbed up his jacket Napoleon called retreat and made for the safety of his coach. Napoleon had to eject several bunnies from the coach while making his escape.
Hilarious, ludicrous and true.
The event was mentioned by Napoleonic historian David G. Chandler in one of his books: “with a finer understanding of Napoleonic strategy than most of his generals, the rabbit horde divided into two wings and poured around the flanks of the party…” Nobody’s said it yet, but was he dealing with Napoleon Bunnyparte?
