A quick sketch of Tom Riddle and the Basilisk for Wizarding Wednesday.
Pronounced "ska-lya." A little curated space for my interests. Currently 90% reblogs and 10% pointless text posts; fannish content includes Spider-Man (616), Doctor Who (new, bit of Big Finish/EDAs/classic), and various other things.
I also run @#$% Yeah, Spider-Wife!, a Mary Jane Watson tumblog. [on hiatus]
I tag for common triggers, but don't hesitate to ask if you need something added.

Portland, Oregon-based artist AJ Fosik (previously featured here) has created an awesome new series of dynamic and vibrant wooden sculptures. Each ferociously striking piece is made using locally sourced lumber from Oregon that is painstakingly carved, painted, and assembled.
"The interpretive works are featured as both eye-popping wall mounts and stand-alone sculptures. There is also a piece in the exhibit that is a 30-sided geometrical shape made of thirty different, diamond-shaped sculptural panels."
Visit the gallery website to view the rest of this stunning exhibition.

Inspired by the Big Finish audio drama “Scherzo” featuring the Eighth Doctor and Charley, the companion for whom he would sacrifice both life and sanity.
This kiss is not at all what you think…
“Scherzo” is a chilling exploration of sensory deprivation and emotional overload. Not one of my top favorite episodes, but certainly one of the most memorable, in which the Doctor is at his most cruel and most desperately honest and even vulnerable. It is also, while seriously disturbing, a beautiful and intensely haunting experience. It affected me so much it warranted its own painting.
Sometimes you need somebody to stop you
Illustration for a Classic Who zine! Barbara really was the first Donna, wasn’t she? Just as strong-willed as the Doctor, acting like a moral compass.
"He was tall. Said he was a researcher. That he was happy. Well, he didn’t say but he looked happy. Your aunt saw him too, and from what Gwen told me she wanted to punch him. She didn’t though, and apparently they had a talk. Gwen thinks she heard your aunt crying, but that’s probably just Gwen. MJ saw him too.
Your aunt is doing well. The Captain says hi, and I think Mr. Stark was trying to but Director Chang called him for a meeting. Gwen misses you. Flash called your aunt last week to say sorry. He said he knows it doesn’t mean much and she almost hung up on him. But you know, he’s sorry.
I never saw your face when you were alive, but this Peter Parker looked like you but with a broader face. I think that’s because of age.
Your aunt asks you to say hello to your uncle.”
This is attempts number two and three at a knitted geode. I would love to spend more time on these, making wonkier shapes, more colour options, just plain bigger versions. At the moment I’d be quite happy to spend the entire year knitting rocks, I’m not sure that the website would keep getting hits if I did though…
This is really cool!
