“Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women for the money. And it made her miserable.
As a young writer, Alcott concentrated on lurid pulp stories of revenge, murder, and adultery–“blood and thunder” literature, as she called i–and enjoyed writing very much. She was in her mid 30s when an editor suggested she try writing a book for girls. Alcott wasn’t very interested, but her father was a complete moron with money and had left the family in terrible financial trouble. Alcott wrote Little Women in hopes of some decent sales and a little breathing room and got way more than she asked for. The money in sequels was too good to turn down (and her father didn’t get any smarter with a dime), but Alcott hated writing what she called “moral pap for the young” and longed to return to the smut and violence of her early endeavors.”
There’s a play about this called “Little Women: The Tragedy”, by the feminist theater group Split Britches. Having read some of her pulpy gothic horror stuff, I can verify that she had a real gift for it!
I want to see different writers take a crack at Vastra and Jenny.
Thank you, Bill Murray.
Journey to the West -
In the Tang dynesty, Buddhist monk Xuanzang travels to India to bring sacred texts back to his native land. After his attendants and his horse are killed by fiends along the journey, Heaven provides him with new assistants…
Not that a womanizing pig monster, a cannibalistic river demon, a dragon turned into a horse and a chaotic monkey king make the best Buddhist monks… but they do make for a brilliant story ;D
A digital painting, completed SAI and ArtRage. My designs for the characters are mostly based on their descriptions in the novel, although I always loved Sandy/Sha Wujing in this rather fabulous tv series that has him look more like a Japanese kappa, so I went down that route.
I’ve learned a lot doing this, and its actually got me feeling really positive about my ability to learn and grow as an artist. Hooray!
OMFG. THIS. SHOW.
This dude’s face is amazing. He’s like a Japanese Jim Carrey.
Friendly reminder that the main actor here, Yuya Yagira grew up from being that kid that starred in the sad Japanese independent live action film: “Nobody Knows”
Hold up- where can I watch this show??
