Set in a 1920’s New York where Prohibition outlaws the brewing of spells, the story follows Vincent Byrde, a hard-boiled PI who struggles with a magic curse. After a long career hunting magic bootleggers, Vincent has become obsessed with the frustrating case of Jimmy Wonder: a young, up-and-coming spellrunner who keeps slipping out of the hands of the law. Their dance takes a complicated turn when Kitty Lovelace — well-known to be Jimmy’s main girl — walks out on Wonder and into Vincent’s life.
It’s been two years since STW was concepted and it’s so exciting to both Muun and I to be in the final stretch of it. This has been a particularly ambitious project for us, so please check it out and support us!
The Kickstarter is going on until March 25! Please check it out and support if you like!
AND THEN I COME HOME TO DISCOVER WE JUST MET OUR 25K STRETCH GOAL. That is AMAZING. Thank you all so much for supporting Small Town Witch!
That means we’ll now be releasing a developer’s artbook!. It will be printed alongside STW’s first book. This will be a Kickstarter bonus exclusive — for all you lovely people who have gotten us this far! It’ll contain development art, character notes, and prequel stories. There’s more, but go check out the full update here.
In addition, we’ve announced our final stretch goal! In the event that we should break 50K, we will produce a Small Town Witch radio drama in the style of our original promo video. This wouldn’t just be a rehash of the pilot story. This would be an original noir adventure featuring the same cast! So if detective podcasts are up your (dark and foreboding) alley please help us go that last distance!
Just reblogging to let everyone know we’ve got a week left on the Small Town Witch kickstarter!!!
Boosting again because these people are amazing and their stories and art are amazing. Boost the shit out of some of my favourite artistic people!!! Go help, support if you can!!!
365 day movie challenge | 39. The Wind Rises (2013) ★★★★★
“Le vent se lève! Il faut tenter de vivre! The wind is rising! We must try to live!”
Jiro dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni. Nearsighted from a young age and unable to be a pilot, Jiro joins a major Japanese engineering company in 1927 and becomes one of the world’s most innovative and accomplished airplane designers. The film chronicles much of his life, depicting key historical events, including the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, the Great Depression, the tuberculosis epidemic and Japan’s plunge into war. Jiro meets and falls in love with Nahoko, and grows and cherishes his friendship with his colleague Honjo.
My thoughts; This may have been the best movie I’ve seen so far since I’ve started this thing. The animation was beautiful, not that I expected anything less from Hayao Miyazaki, and the story line was intense yet lighthearted at the same time. The whole movie is a whopping two hours, though it passes by very quickly because you never want it to end. There’s a bitter sweetness about the whole thing that’ll make you cry (even in the theater like me!), especially when you start to think that this is Miyazaki’s last movie.
i made a ghibli jam but i didn’t make it in time! oh well! here’s kurokawa from The Wind Rises, the BEST CHARACTER IN THE MOVIE BY FAR.

I’ve learned how to cook since I moved out to California. It’s therapeutic. And delicious~ I garnish everything with a fried egg, and I never regret it.
Making of Hideaki Anno’s magnum Opus, Rebuild of Evangelion 3.33 YOU CAN (NOT) REDO. A compilation progression rough-to-final-process video showcasing the beginning stages and final compositing of one of the greatest displays of production planning/animation to date (2D/CGI animation usage).
Anno’s Studio Khara is part of why I will always want to do 2D animation.
