As you may have heard, Meghan Markle is engaged to Prince Harry. You may have also heard that Meghan Markle has retired from acting in lieu of the aforementioned fact. I’m only happy with one half of this equation, but let’s not dwell on the negative here.
I’m so freaking happy for the both if them! They’re a super cute couple, and you better believe I’m gonna wake up hella early on the day of their wedding in May 2018 t watch it broadcast on TV!
In congratulations, I’ve decided to feature Meghan Markle for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. This sketch by yaoskaxx I found on Deviant Art features Meghan Markle with a super fierce smolder.
I cannot wait for May 2018!

So Drake is basically our hero of the week.
At the rapper’s concert this week in Sydney, Australia, he threatened an audience member for touching women inappropriately in the crowd.
What a creep!
He legit stopped the entire show to publicly embarrass this man, and I am so grateful for it. With all the crap that’s been going on with sexual assault, we need people like Drake to call out these creepers.
Like, did your parents never tell you not to touch random people in crowds, moreover in that way?!
As a thank you, I’ve decided to feature this cool Drake fan art by illustrator Ryan Simpson (@rtsimp) that I found over on Instagram. I love how he got the little curve design in Drake’s haircut just right!

ABC’s The Good Doctor was on hiatus this week, which was so saddening because I was legit lying in bed waiting for Dr. Shaun Murphy (played by Freddie Higmore) to appear n my screen on Monday night to no avail.
The show is only a few weeks old and I am hooked! Its partially because I’ve loved Freddie Highmore’s acting ever since seeing him as a kid in August Rush back in 2007. The Good Doctor is generally a well written medical drama, in my opinion. Freddie Highmore just adds to the show’s appeal.
To get me through until Monday, November 13th’s episode of The Good Doctor, I’ve decided to feature Freddie Highmore for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. This piece of digital fan art by Oshin Padhye (OshinP) on DeviantArt features the actor smiling that sly grin he always does. Classic.

A couple of weeks ago, my mom and I had one of those “where are they now” moments while discussing one of my favorite 90s children’s television characters, Loonette the Clown, from The Big Comfy Couch.
As anyone does, we did a quick Google search and found that Loonette was played by Alyson Court, who has a son and is now in her 40s. More on where she is now can be found over on MTV.com.
I used spend countless hours as a kid circa 1999 trying to perfect Loonette’s clock rug stretch on my bedroom floor after every episode (which was always a complete fail because I wasn’t that flexible then and I’m still not flexible now).
I woke up this morning remembering all this and decided I should probably make use of it for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. So, here’s some amazing fan art of Loonette and her doll Molly by nellii_bug on Instagram. It was created using ink brush pens, which give the fan art a watercolor feel. I also love the fact that she gave Loonette anime eyes!
BTW, would make a perfect Halloween costume idea for mother and daughter. You can even go as Loonette and take a Molly doll along with you if you can’t find a human to pair up with.

Boo 2! A Madea Halloween is out in theaters today, for those of you who’d rather leave the cinema laughing instead of fearing nightmares this Halloween.
I really did not expect Tyler Perry to create a second Halloween-themed Madea film. Not that I didn’t like the first one, but this doesn’t seem to be a direct continuation of the 2016 film. I’ll still probably watch it when it arrives n DVD though.
I was quite young when Madea became a household name. My Godmother gave my mom one of Tyler Perry’s stage plays ages ago. It’s insane how far Madea’s craziness has gotten on the big screen.
For this week’s Fan Art Fridays, we celebrate everything that is Madea with this cartoon by M. Rasheed. It featured Madea and her many faces.
I’m not sure what possessed Tyler Perry to allow Madea to legally own a gun. I would not be caught dead near her while that thing was loaded.
View the original fan art on Pinterest, and watch the trailer for Boo 2! A Madea Halloween below!
So I’m going to finish out National Hispanic Heritage Month with one of my favorite Hispanic TV characters, Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, played by Sofia Vergara, from Modern Family.
Both the actress and the character are Colombian, which is pretty convenient.
Gloria has such a colorful personality that it’s hard not to like her. From being an overprotective mother to her crazy temper, she’s one of those television characters you can’t easily forget.
Gloria is also known for being really loud, as portrayed in this fan art by katseartist on Deviant Art. She’s screaming for her husband, Jay, as she does regularly on the show. I can hear her voice just from looking at this cartoon version of Gloria.
See the original fan art here.
Continuing on with Hispanic Heritage Month, for this week’s Fan Art Fridays we have the one and only Lin-Manuel Miranda!
The actor put out an amazing song today for Puerto Rico’s hurricane relief efforts called “Almost Like Praying,” which features a long list of fellow Latin American artists including Alex Lacamoire, John Leguizamo, Jennifer Lopez, Rita Moreno, Ednita Nazario, Joell Ortiz, Anthony Ramos, and Gina Rodriguez.
In light of this, I went on the hunt for some fan art of Lin-Manuel, and of course the majority of what I could find is Hamilton-related. I’m not complaining, though.
This black and white sketch is by Eleanor Orchard. She does a lot of sketches of K-Pop artists as well. I love how serious Lin-Manuel looks here.
See the original fan art on Tumblr and don’t forget to check out “Almost Like Praying”.
