these sheep are excessively cute, i wish to meet them one day

Watched my wife play Delta Rune last night. It's charming in the extreme. I can't wait to see the complete game but it's going to be awhile I imagine lol

I don't recall if I've made a post here, but I'm currently in between jobs and am going at least a month without a paycheck. 😟 So I'm opening up quick sketch commissions. Uncolored is $15, and colored is $20. Below are some examples of my work that I can do for $20! If interested, please contact me at! Thanks so much for reading!

Every now and then I get comments from readers like "wow this is so good I can't believe it's not more popular, you deserve a bigger audience" and I super appreciate it because that's a kind thing to say, but it's really hard not to come back with THEN SHARE IT /PLEASE/

i know i say it a lot but this is really out of the creator's hands. if you think something you're into needs more eyes on it please for the love of god go link it in your discord or tweet it or get on the patreon or SOMETHING

I'm afraid that #solarpunk is too western, white and focused on fiction to make a change. People prefer fetishizing #burningman aesthetics to noticing the real changemakers around the world.

Have you heard about ? Its a network of hackers from Africa, Middle East, South America and Southeast Asia. They do things some solarpunk writers only imagine, but there is little interest in that in the West.

Why not start #SolarpunkReporting ?

Artists are all so different and the reasons for doing what you do can be so dramatic, it's really interesting to me.

It causes a lot of problems, it'd be nice to be confident about talking about those differences, but people can be really insecure about these things & tend not to react well.

Like the ardent crunchers lashing back at people who say artists should be taking it easy/not hurting themselves over deadlines.

I've had bad enough experiences in general that I'm the kind of person who doesn't show people I meet IRL my art. I'd rather nobody I have to interact with on the daily even know I draw. It's caused a lot of problems & anxiety for me in the past, so I just don't do it.

I'm curious how many other people are like that, I have one friend who is but obviously the career artists I know are happy to show everyone they meet their art & are glad for the attention.

Anyways this also feeds into my thoughts on current birdsite discourse recently about racist art school professors hating anime

At the age I was heading into college, I wanted NOTHING MORE than to be able to draw anime/manga, but all art teachers hated it. This and the fact that school ruined my interests for me pretty much every time, & I was super depressed, made me avoid art school entirely.

Don't really regret it, but it's sad how many barriers were very apparent to me from early on

for some reason I was thinking recently of my attempt to draw humans as a kid before being exposed to anime.

I love anime and I'm proud to have achieved my current style, but it's funny to think how different things would have been if I kept drawing people like this, the other kind of comics I tend to like because styles like this are funny/cute/approachable.

It was frustrating at the time I drew this way bc I could only really draw 1 person. I didn't stick with it very long

I should just do it with pen and paper for a while lol

I keep kinda wanting a tablet I can draw on while watching tv since I don't get to sit at my desk much nowadays.

But I have trouble concentrating when I'm around other people.

But I also miss the days I spent drawing in front of the tv as a kid.
