steenbot asked: (8 hi jenna
1. First impression: This girl is the only other person in this awful fucking class who speaks up and oh man look at her art her, I will be her friend
2. Truth is: You are my Founding Babby. You are mine. I claimed you: I have a flag. You cannot leave. There is no way out. Drums, drums in the deep…
3. How old do you look:
4. Have you ever made me laugh: Oh yes.
5. Have you ever made me mad: YES. I JUST —
Steen: [referring to a really lovely thing she is working on] everything is essentially wrong but i don’t care because its a silkscreen
Jenna: I WILL SLAP YOU UNTIL YOU PUKE UNICORN BLOOD
6. Best feature: You push through your gnawing self-doubt to produce art that leaves me speechless. You are relentless in your journey to grasp that illusive thing at the center of your art, the flame that occasionally shines through as if through a prism (Othello). You refuse to let yourself defeat yourself.
7. Have I ever had a crush on you: Artcrush friendcrush BABBYCRUSH
8. You’re my: Precious founding babby. The one who’ll laugh at my cripplingly dorky jokes, and be there when I have a stupid girlbrain or a bad day, and yell at me when I hate my art. Soon to be roommate!!
9. Name in my phone: Steen
10. Should you post this too? Suuuuure (8
- Me: understand that if you ever stop making art
- Me: you will wake up
- Me: with that face six inches from yours
- Me: teeth and eyes gleaming
- Steen: .....like a shark before a fresh kill
- Me: and i will whisper
- Me: 'hey steen'
- Me: and then slowly back away, smiling the whole time
- Me: and disappear out the door
- Me: the next morning you will question whether or not you dreamed it; i will not seem to have changed toward you
- Me: but every now and then you will glance over
- Me: and i will smile that smile very, very briefly
- Me: so briefly you can almost imagine you're making it up
- Me: except that it will stop when you begin making art again
- Steen: /soft weeping
