SU is never going to be a show that adheres to static, lifeless stock expressions. it’s a CARTOON and we do not apologize.

gemsona-week:

The Gemsona Week blog IS UP!! and ready for gemsona submissions! PLEASE BOOST THIS POST & GET INVOLVED! This is going to be a lot of fun.

Gemsona Week is April 11th-18th, a whole week of celebrating the amazing animated television series Steven Universe!

There will be prompt challenges for writers and artists, as well as the Gemsona Fusion Project- artists submit their gemsona to the blog and are randomly paired together to create a totally new fusion character with their partner’s character! Please read the project overview and guidelines before submitting.

Gemsona submissions for the project are due April 4th!

I’ll be posting more information and updates in the #gemsona week and #gemfusion project tags, so track those if you like! And of course when April 11th rolls around, please use the #gemsona week tag in your posts, challenges or not, so I can reblog them & share.

Artwork of our gemsonas Dorey & Peri and their fusion Agate was lined by me and colored by Madi.

Officially the best fandom in the universe

In case you missed my newsletter, I thought I’d post this here! Enjoy!

Ben Levin on Writing for Animation:

College/University: New York University, Tisch School of the Arts.  I like using the full title to confuse people.

Shows/series/personal projects you’ve written for: I’ve written for the Cartoon Network series Level Up and I currently write on Steven Universe.  Before that I wrote a handful of animated shorts, including a web series called Ronin Dojo Community College DX: The Digital Pirates of Dark Water Saga.  Again, I’m a fan of long titles.
