Oh my god oh my god oh my god
I just picked this up from the post office- a commission of my darling Firage III by the amazing Kina Aaaah he’s amazing and I have a frame with his name on it at home ❤️
#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.
That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.
This is why honey is not vegan.
The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.
YOU’RE NOT MILKING THE BEES FOR THE HONEY
YOU’RE NOT EVEN HURTING THEM
OR THEIR HOME
"asexuals can and often do enjoy sex, attraction and libido are different!" yea that’s nice, but let’s not ignore the fact that the majority of aces ARE sex-aversive. like can we pls not make the ace community as sex normative as literally every other single fucking community out there. can we please.
I’m finally writing Demonguard. Planning notes, timelines, story arcs, even planning a novel.
It’s funny because before this I had never really put anything down on paper and I got a lot of berating from my fellow creative friends about it- I had this entire world in my head and it’s only getting bigger with every word I write.
I’m a pretty horrible writer but if this is gonna be a webcomic then I have to write, right? (Hah!)
So yeah. Some of it will spill onto my art journal but I mainly want to keep it confined to a few friends/people willing to give me critique/point out plot holes. If you want to be one of those people let me know but it’s going to be a pretty daunting task, wading through the gallons of information which is pouring out of my head right now.
YOU ARE THE HERO GOTHAM DESERVES
I’M CRYING BECAUSE OF THAT CAPTION
My selection of our Xenoblade photoshooting at Connichi 2014.
It was a great day and we had lots of fun!

Had a really intense dream- an artist I really admired was spreading rumours about me and pretty much said that if a story wasn’t about an ‘us vs them’ theme with an underprivileged protagonist then it wasn’t worth creating. He showed me a YouTube clip of this show where all of the girls named Jane had like, superpowers and wings and all the jills had shit all and the protagonist was one of those Jills. It had a similar art style to Winx club and this orange colour scheme.
Then I sorta died inside after all the abuse/stress.
Fucking weird dream and man do I feel tired right now. Ugh I wanna sleep in >_
mmm, tea :) Thanks hon. The rest of tonight will be spent curled up in bed playing Fantasy Life. My next day off is Wednesday. I’ll hopefully be fully recharged then so I can work on a huge-ass commission I’ve got.
I think that, despite everything, I needed today- to just take myself out of the world I inhabit and plonk myself into another, still familliar one. I find that spending time with mum recharges me quicker. Not sure about the rest of the family but definitely mum.
Back to your regularly-scheduled art machine tomfoolery tomorrow night.
Most brilliant anti-feminist quote I have read to date.
And it’s from Christina Sommers, a feminist who has said again and again how she hates what feminism has become.
I actually tweeted her that this tweet is making its rounds on Tumblr, and she retweeted. She thoroughly knows we praise her.
The anti-feminist feminist.

And when asked the questions, you may answer the favourites in any order. Such as 5,4,3,2,1; 1,3,2; 4,2,1,3; with 1 being the best (in your opinion) and always being there.
After asking five more questions, tag five people and refer to their blogs in the post, too. And tell them you tagged them.

1. If you had to open a food-based business, what would you be selling?
I would totally open up a cafe/resturant that made paleo food but didn’t wank about it.
2. A new Planet has recently been discovered, and you’re given the opportunity to name it. What god (all cultural Pantheons accepted) do you name it after?
It’d depend on the planet. That said, a planet named Shiva would have to be the most hardass, uninhabitable piece of rock in the entire universe.
3. You take a road trip and your car breaks down in Silent Hill. Based on your personal demons, what do you think the town would create as your version of Pyramid Head/The Butcher/The Bogeyman?
Something spidery. Dun wanna think about it.
4. If you were a dog, what breed would you be? (No, you cannot opt out and select a cat)
hmmmm a border collie?
5. What is your favorite flower?
Hm… Probably poppies.
