girl-germs: ceramickitten: My dearest friends, Last year so many of you came together and helped donate money to purchase toys for the children on Pine Ridge reservation. Thank You! It was wonderful but unfortunately (my people) the Oglala Lakota Sioux need more than toys this…
A question for you
Just wondering, would any of you out there be interested in lessons of anatomy, composition, or art in general? I am thinking about different ways to help people do things they enjoy, to spread my name a bit, and hopefully — if people are willing to toss me some donations — to make a little money. I’d very much like to know the honest answer to this. I’m a good teacher and...

Track the progress of SOPA! →
emmittnervend: onlysaneman: lakrymosa: mayra-quijotesca: anticapitalist: accll: Follow this link to track the progress of SOPA. As you can see, this still has a way to go before it is officially made into a law. It has also NOT been rejected. Do not listen to idiots on Tumblr. Please spread this link around, I beg of you all. Do not listen to idiots on Tumblr. - this is great...

me-ya-ri: I have my second commission from Hushicho! This one is of Jun and Takeo, who just got introduced in The Secrets of the Artificer Mages. It’s naughty but not so naughty that I’m going to put it behind a cut as there’s nothing but hints of the strategic regions. XD First: Black and White version! And the colored version: I really love how fierce Takeo is in this (he’s the one...

STOP SOPA, SAVE THE INTERNET →
wilwheaton: Google knows it. Viacom knows it. The Chamber of Commerce knows it. Internet democracy groups know it. BoingBoing knows it. But, the Internet hasn’t been told yet — we’re going to get blown away by the end of the year. The worst bill in Internet history is about to become law. Law is very real here in the United States and legal language is often different than stated intentions —...

The Internet Could Be Killed. →
Please join us in a day of protest for the proposed SOPA bill. It is yet another incarnation of the draconian bill pushed by Hollywood and the recording industry for years now. Basically it gives American politicians and corporations the power to act completely outside the legal system and censor any and all parts of the internet with very little real need for actual proof or legality. I’m...
Breast Cancer Awareness
I don’t usually make public service announcements, but I thought that I might share this with you all. Just so you know, breast cancer is not a women-only health issue. Men should be aware of it too. In fact, everyone should. I am kind of disappointed by how many people see a pink ribbon and all these advertisements and so forth advertising it as a ‘women’s health’ issue....

Whoot for Juraj and Besim! :D
me-ya-ri: \o/ \o/ \o/ I’m late posting this due to life being busy but I just got a commission by Hushicho and I have to share because it’s GORGEOUS! *squees and flails and bounces around like a loon* See, I decided that I wanted pictures of my main characters for my story The Secrets of the Artificer Mages. Juraj and Besim came first since they’re the main characters of the story. Hushicho...
Commissions Open! Emergency
I am opening commissions wide open — I’m already doing some and I’m ready to take on more. A friend of mine is unable to have any more children due to the serious physical risk to her. She has a lovely daughter, but the pregnancy almost killed her. She has taken every precaution, but somehow she conceived. The doctors are giving her a kind of run-around but she has got to have...
Sexism is sexism. Racism is racism. Discrimination is discrimination. I agree with doing projects that have a particular subject. I’ve organised and realised projects with a unified theme, like uplifting pro-gay stories. I think it’s great when people get together with a good purpose like that. But when participation in the project itself is restricted by race, gender, sexual...

Here’s the address if you’re in the area and need directions: 5335 Central Ave. Pike Knoxville, TN 37912 The show will be from 10 AM to 4 PM, so come by and see me! I’ll also have my exciting ‘impurity...
Seriously? Sluggish performance (on my actually quite good PC), an intro video that seems plucked directly out of the worst of today’s comic output, and a laughable character creator that is one of the most confusing I have ever seen. Everybody looks like a generic monstrosity from the dark age that was the 90s. When looking in the forums to see if I had just missed options (which is easy...
