October Jones | on Tumblr (UK) - Motivational notes

UK-born writer and illustrator October Jones (real name Joe Butcher), the creative genius behind Text From Dog and these funny train commute doodles, is at it again with these hilarious motivational post-it notes that he leaves on the train and in other random places.

The upbeat doodles, which star Jones’ adorable character Peppy the Inspirational Cat, convey positive and funny messages meant to motivate daily commuters. Whether you’re feeling the Monday blues or in need of some encouragement, Jones’ delightful post-it notes are sure to brighten your day and remind you just how awesome you are.

REVERSE THE NEGATIVITY!!

I designed my very own TMNT toy! This is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever had the pleasure of doing, I’m so thrilled. I’ve had to keep this a secret for months! 
If I had $5 when I was a kid, it was going to be spent on a ninja turtle figure. So much of my childhood was defined by TMNT, I watched every episode, I had the toys, the shirts, the games, the comics. I wish I could say “Lil Mikey” was a dream come true, but I never could have fathomed this happening. I am so extremely excited about this figure, and I can’t wait to show it off at SDCC. You can see this in person at my table (#2743) or Mondo’s booth (#835). Trust me, you’ll want to see it in person, it’s bigger than you think. 

Ace.

Currently working on a number of personal #got sigils for Swords & Sigils Fanzine. We (the editorial team) have decided to brave it and choose our own sigils to let the readers see what we’re like and to have a bit of fun, rather than just choosing an already existing House sigil (like we have done in the last two issues). 

Here is my own personal sigil, I’m still not sure which one i like more.

House Thurman
Words: Fear Our Thunder

Explanation:
My surname is Thurman - which comes from the Old Norse name Thorrmund, which means “Thor’s Protection”. And as Thor is the Norse God of Thunder, it seemed only right to have lightning bolts as the sigil. I have used white fists holding the bolts so it doesn’t look too much like House Dondarrion, and because it looks badass.

The motto isn’t meant to be threatening but instead is a bit of a joke. 
1. We’re not a very scary family.
2. Thunder could be associated with our flatulence.
3. We’re quite loud.

More to come from the rest of the team soon!

The arm folding intros for the World Cup always keep me entertained. Enjoy the best one, and some of the worst ones.

13 Incredibly Geeky Moments of Bathroom Graffiti

In the days before cell phones, there was only one thing to do in a public bathroom…well, okay, only one thing you could do that wasn’t really really unhygenic: writing graffiti all over the walls. Thankfully, this tradition still exists today - and these are some of the best.

Just yes.
