👩🎨This afternoon it's watercolor time! 💦 I have to add some more details and textures on this picture and it will be finished at least!😌 I have never been in a hot-air balloon, and knowing how anxious I am I don't think I will be very at ease to travel in one of them... But I have always find so pretty all these vintage pictures of them, and fortunately there are some adventurous mice far more daring than I am! 😅 And you, are you more the cautious or the audacious type? 🤔
I have always dreamed of owning an authentic gramophone... They look so beautiful with their horn looking like the corolla of a huge flower! They have this charm specific to old objects, as they were haunted by the years passing slowly while they stay still... I love so much things about them, so it was only a matter of time for me until I decide to paint one for a watercolor. I wanted it to have this romantic aspect that they evoke me, so I hope that you will feel that too seing this picture! 🖤
If you're looking for a cute present for someone who love stationery and witchy things, I just finished to work on a sweet goth letter set! 😊 And by the same occasion, it's also a nice way to support an artist and her very small business!

Poverty as an artist
It's so exhausting trying to make money as an artist! 😖 Most of the time I don't give a damn about the fact that I don't make a living with my art because I used to grow in a very poor family...

I have worked on a sort of goth, sort of cute stationery set lately! ☺️ Since I love writing beautiful letters to my sibling, but also have a thing for mischievous evil cherub and crescent moons, it was time for me to design something of my own! 🖤🦇 Here are the postcards and letter seal stickers I have made for the occasion! Hope you will like it!
😊 I will make an update on my shop in the next few days, as soon as my writing paper will be printed 😉

Hot Allostatic Load – The New Inquiry
> This is about disposability from a trans feminine perspective, through the lens of an artistic career. It’s about being human trash.
> This is in defense of the hyper-marginalized among the marginalized, the Omelas kids, the marked for death, those who came looking for safety and found something worse than anything they’d experienced before.
> For years, queer/trans/feminist scenes have been processing an influx of trans fems, often impoverished, disabled, and/or from traumatic backgrounds. These scenes have been abusing them, using them as free labor, and sexually exploiting them. The leaders of these scenes exert undue influence over tastemaking, jobs, finance, access to conferences, access to spaces. If someone resists, they are disappeared, in the mundane, boring, horrible way that many trans people are susceptible to, through a trapdoor that can be activated at a…
