Social media/'influencer' chat:
There's been some discussion on the old b*rdsite about artists essentially being social media 'influencers'. Of course, in most cases, art can be commercial and political like this, but at the same time, there's far too much about this statement that makes me uncomfortable. There's this feeling that that's all an artist is on social media and that's all they ever do.
Hello friends, I have decided to abandon this account - you can now find me here: @mooncube
The reason is that I no longer feel comfortable with this alias and its ableistic nuances, as discussed here: https://mastodon.social/@acrazymind/101526984459686687
It was a tough call because I lose all my followers and posts, but its worth it. Follow my new acc if you want to see more of my work, and please boost for visibility if you can. Thank you, love you all. ❤️
My sketchbook is full of fluffy things at the moment!
I had some musings about firbolgs based on hedgehogs over on the birdsite this week, and had to get some ideas down in the sketchbook. There's a little Caddy from Critical Role there too, just for a test of the concept.
Also a happy Journey adding flowers to his antlers: the ultimate in decorative fast food.

Here's some art slump sketches I promised to post on the birdsite recently, including the first appearance of my Erinyes-tiefling Zephyr.
For those who were curious, Zephyr's design is very much inspired by Amy Deanna and Letitia Wright as Shuri.
Sometimes it's better down where it's wetter... #artwip
Mental health rant:
Sorry I haven't been posting over here that often. My brain has been doling some awful things so I've been taking time out for self-care. I have a nasty habit of comparing myself to the various professional artists who work 8 hrs a day on their work to myself who often has less than 2-3 hrs a day. Not only has the T*mblr debacle got me riled up, but this too.
