An Oregon father, his sweater-clad older son, and his shouty younger son take on the wide, wide world together.
Characters will age with the blog; currently Kankri Moishe is 39, Kankri Elisha is 20, and Karkat is 16 (as of June 2014). Updates are sporadic but hopefully you'll never have to go more than a few weeks without a post.

HE’S KIND OF AWKWARD BUT NEPETA LIKES HIM SO I HAVE TO ASSUME HE’S AN OKAY DUDE.

((You should give Mr. Makara tattoos, I said. Just keep it simple, I said. Do one on his shoulder and the skull on his face and leave it, I said. And now here we are.

I swear on all that is holy, I’m not adding any more after this, and they’re going to stop moving around every time I draw them.

I’m also going to put him in long sleeves a lot more often. Gotta cover those huge yaoi arms somehow.))

WE’VE BEEN DOING A BIG VANTAS-CAPTOR BIRTHDAY THING FOR YEARS NOW, SINCE DAD’S AND KANKRI’S ARE LATER THIS MONTH AND THE CAPTORS ALL JUST HAD THEIRS. IT MAKES SENSE TO JUST MASH THAT SHIT TOGETHER INTO A BIG SUPERPARTY.

NOBODY EVER BELIEVES IT’S A BOY’S NAME. LITTLE MERMAID HAD BEEN OUT FOR AT LEAST HALF A FUCKING DECADE, MY DUMBSHIT OF A DAD KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS DOING.

((I couldn’t resist — and I love drawing the Captor nose. Onward to 3333 and the Leijons! The Makaras are the stretch goal, I honestly doubt we’ll ever make it to 6666.
The Captors are a lot pointier than the Vantases — they’re triangles rather than rectangles. Everything about them is angled. They all have cheekbones you could cut yourself on, though Sollux, like Karkat, hasn’t quite lost all his babyface so they’re not as apparent on him.
My favorite part is how even though Simon and Mituna are twins and both thirty years old, they look completely different. Simon has worry lines, is prematurely graying, and tends toward ‘older’ looking outfits, while Mituna looks basically like an overgrown scruffy teenaged dandelion.
No one is entirely sure what is under Mituna’s bangs, either. Logically everyone knows it’s his eyes, which are probably exactly like his brothers, but they’re a very rare sight and it’s cause for much debate.))

Inkwell’s Nepeta is so fucking adorable

((I’m going to just reblog this here with the same fierce pride as a parent using like twenty magnets to pin their child’s first A+ school project to the fridge.
Which Mr. Vantas does, by the way.))

((I cannot believe this blog now has over 2000 followers — in the time since I noticed we were almost at that mark and started drawing this picture, almost 100 more of you have joined in! Thank you to each and every one of you for being here and making this blog such a joy to run.
I thought I’d give you a more detailed, full-color look at the Vantases in thanks, to highlight some of the little differences between how I see them (since while I do draw them Very Symbolically and so very much alike, they’re actually not genetically identical as they would be in canon). Both Kankri and Karkat haven’t quite grown into their Vantas noses yet, and Karkat’s only just growing out of his babyface and into the Vantas jaw. Kankri’s lighter eyes mirror his white ghost eyes in canon, while the other two have dark brown eyes. Mr. Vantas and Karkat have the same pulled-to-one-side smile, while Kankri is not good at smiling for photos (he’s also the only one that bothers to actually try to keep the Vantas bird’s nest of hair under control).
Here’s to many more months of fun together, friends. It’s been a blast so far and I foresee only good things for the future.))

Oh, I’m sorry, anon. I assumed that since you couldn’t possibly be being serious, I shouldn’t be either.
