Comment on Starsky black and blue and red

  1. Hey! Thank you so much.

    Yes I found out some days ago that I was nominated. And I still can’t believe it. Woooow!
    Well there is no need to add that I’ve no plans to win ;) but to see my name, and two of my works, along with those wonderful artists (like you) and gorgeous pieces is sooooo amazing. I’m still learning, I’m a newbie and I only have four SH works!

    Congratulations to you! Your art is very beautiful and you deserve to win. Good luck!

    1. Hey, I'm still a newbie, too, relatively speaking - in 2016, I got nominated in art and artist categories with ONE single work to show! :D It felt amazing! So I know how you feel. I hope being nominated inspires you to make more, more, more beautiful SH art (S/H in particular, wink wink). It sure made me work harder to create a "body of work" to be worthy of the nomination. (As for actually winning, I don't expect that to happen any time soon, as this is still a new award (I think this is the third time) and there are still so many great "old masters" waiting in line in the Best Artist category (you can knock me down with a feather if I win instead of Anachron or Enednoviel this year). And lol, in the Best Art category, I think it's a disadvantage to have several works nominated, as the slashers' votes will disperse and no gen fan will ever vote me, godforbid. And anyway, I think the best reward is simply getting to be part of this fandom.

      (Btw, are you by any chance a member of our virtual Cabrillo State ward aka the Starsky/Hutch Original Bromance group on FB (https://www.facebook.com/groups/SHbromance)? If not, you're so very welcome to join us there and share your art and thoughts on the boys. That is, if you use FB at all, I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. Thankfully, closed FB groups are private these days so that not even your friends can see which groups you are in, let alone what you post. Lol, that said, I have a separate FB account for fannish use. :D )

      1. I’ve never been nominated for anything in my life and, of course, I have never won any prize. At least anything art related. So seeing my name on the list makes me really happy. I never thought about winning -perhaps in 10 years from now or more... this fandom is full of very talented people and I’ve just arrived. Of course you are way ahead of me.

        Anyway winning prizes is great but sharing beautiful art is even better. I hope to make more and more SH and S/H art. I’ve done something for the sharecon zine (my first work for a zine ever. It will be printed!!! I’m over the moon; one of my drawings properly printed!) and between hot summer days and hard working days I’m lucky enough to have some time off to practice a little. Are you attending the sharecon? Sadly I’m not.

        I’m not on FB but my partner is and she is a member of the FB bromance group. I can’t say I watch it every day and because I’m a bit shy, a ‘kind of a newcomer’ and I’m not really on FB I never thought about posting anything there. I’m only active on my tumblr -theoriginofcarrots-, with lots of SH stuff and I also post my works here on AO 3 but I know most fans don’t know my art. Perhaps posting some of my stuff there’d be a good idea. Thanks for letting me know.

        1. Oo, now I'm looking forward to the SHareCon zine even more than I was before, knowing there'll be new art from you! It was pretty special for me, too, to get to be part of the zine last year. I didn't have *any* art ideas for this year's zine though, and I feel a bit guilty about not playing, but it just came too soon after the last year's con, and the advent calendar, and everything... So many fandom duties! :D I'm not going to the con, either - it's a bit far to travel from Finland just for a weekend - but I'm a supporting member so I'll get the zine and the goodies delivered to my door. And there's a Virtual SHareCon group on FB, too.

          You're very lucky to have a partner who shares your S/H interest! And lets you look at her FB, too! I'd like to stay away from FB, out of principle, but I can't leave now because that would make me a fandom orphan. I was just a lurker in most of my earlier fandoms, but the Bromance group is such a friendly place that I got past all that very quickly (I'm Reetta Karoliina there). It's probably the best place to post/link fanart, too (especially slash, of course). Self-reccing is always encouraged, no need to be shy about that. I always post or link my new stuff there.

          Ok, I have to ask - what's with the carrots? :) Every time I see your Tumblr alias, I hear Richard Griffiths doing his "there's a certain *je ne sais quoi* about a firm, young carrot..." speech in "Withnail and I".

          1. Oh it’s a pity you are collaborating with the zine this year. But of course you’ve been busy with other SH projects so it’s ok. Please take all the time you need! I understand that your beautiful art requires hours and hours of hard work.
            Regarding my work for the zine I’m happy and nervous at the same time. I’m very critical, very hard when it comes to my art and I know that in a couple of months I will probably hate my drawing, or at least I won’t think it deserves to be published in a zine. But anyway I can’t wait to hear what do you think about the work. Please let me know when you get it.

            I’ll try to post something -or to be more active- on FB. My partner and I share our love for SH so I can’t complain. Watching the dvds together, commenting, bitching, slashing everything is great. She is not really into fandom but she always lets me have fun ;D

            Hehehe! Carrots! Someone asked me “why carrots?” recently. Well my url makes reference to an old blog I had and also to my love for carrots (I had one tattooed on my upper arm), orange things and vegetables in general -I became a vegetarian at 15 and I’m a vegan now. And I also love Withnail and I!!!

            Btw because we can’t keep on writing long and longer replies here forever (can we?) I sent you a private ask on tumblr. I know you are not very active there but perhaps we can find an easier way to talk. I’m also on lj (onnakarot).
            I think I’ll post a WIP today -or one of these days- on my tumblr. It’s a Hutch I had in mind...
