Thought I’d bring this upcoming comic series to your attention! It features POC heroines (and hero) and an all-woman creative team.
The interview at the link has some great stuff about representation in art as well. I liked this bit from Sloane Leong:
"Representation isn’t as simple as “I want to see a brown character in this story”, it’s “let us be deserving of baseline humanity too” and “don’t forget we exist” and “show me a story where I’m not a criminal/a caricature/something to be discarded”. Allowing marginalized people to go unrepresented isn’t just disappointing to us, it’s harmful to our sense of self."
sockdreams.com is such a dangerous website omg you can drop so much money within the blink of an eye
I NEED ALL OF THEM
let me tell you about sockdreams okay. everything they have is cute and their “longer” socks which are for taller or curvier people are amazing. i am almost 6 feet tall and not a skinny lady and i bought some thigh highs thinking they’d end up being calf socks on me and just kind of resigning myself to this fate but when they arrived (in like two days, holy shit they mail out fast) not only did they pull all the way up without trouble, they managed to stay up and look cute. as. fuck. OP’s right yo, that website’s a threat to your wallet.
sockdreams is such a legitimate company and I love them a lot.
I’ve been buying from them for years and love all their socks so much! <333333333333333
Momo - oh gosh the gaiters. The buttoned cuff.
But nobody knew any of that until five years ago. See more stunning photos this mysterious cave here.

The Corpse Flower, though in the process of closing, is still GORGEOUS and people are flocking in to see it. SO COOL.
[9/3 update: The Corpse Flower closed over a week ago.]
I’m staying at my parents’ (now mostly abandoned) house for the weekend, so I can do some hot, burly woodworking (Hchom sale soon - ready thy loins). I’ve been browsing through some old hard drives, and I found these D&D designs which I’d totally forgotten about.
I can tell by the horse’s stiff little feets, that I was looking at a plastic model while I drew it.
A friend requested I make this, and so here it is, and I offer it to anyone who needs it, with all the authority vested in me by whoever vests these things. Print it out if you need to.
The best art advice ever given to me—ever, ever—was “Don’t be afraid to make bad art.”
You will make a whole lot of crap in your time. Some will be truly awful and some will be merely mediocre. And that is totally normal and totally fine and for the love of little green apples, just keep going, because that’s the only way I know to get to the good stuff eventually.
(I normally feel horribly egotistical mentioning my awards, but I think this counts as using that power for good.)
:’D i feel better now
WE HAD THIS FAILING EXERCISE AT SCHOOL - after you don’t succeed very well with arting, make your most successful pose and with your most successful voice say “I FAILED” \ o /
Oh, wow! That sounds fantastic, actually. Wish my drawing class had that. (In ceramics, we could just ritually smash the piece, which was cathartic like whoa.)
Art of the day: jetsam.
