It’s #WeirdWednesday, and my friend Summer did some things!
Photo on the left is genderbent!me. Photo on the right is me, but with contour.
Had these commissioned for an experiment with Rule 63, which, for those of you unfamiliar with the internet, is “…an internet adage which states that for every fictional character, there exists an opposite-gender counterpart.” (KnowYourMeme.com, 2011) In layman’s terms, it’s why Adventure Time has Marceline and Marshall Lee, Finn and Fionna, Princess Bubblegum and Prince Gumball. Think of it as an extension of string theory.
Following string theory, there’s probably a me in an alternate universe who is this socially-awkward, unapologetically nerdy guy who blogs his bad poetry and is trying to be a musician. He’s probably also extremely single.
If that’s true, the socially-awkward, unapologetically nerdy girl who is blogging her bad poetry and trying to be a musician in this dimension sends her condolences. I know that feel. We will make it through the rain.
(Although, considering how Summer sketched my boy!self, I don’t think he’d be as single as I am? He kind of looks like, to borrow CardlinAudio’s words, “nerdy Asian boyfriend material.” Hashtag-blessed.)
Thanks so much to Summer Manzaon for this awesome art!
