Pinned toot

CW: weird painting, suicide suggestion, BPD 

Thinking about walking myself to the sun never to return. As you might suspect by this painting I just finished titled "WALKING to the SUN (and NEVER coming back)"

Pinned toot

CW: patterns (crosshatching), cats in clothing 

Drawing up some country cats
Trying to draw things other than nude femmes so here we are

Pinned toot

CW: nudity (mostly just boob), death, bones 

Mixed media post!!!

Most of my mixed media stuff is from found items, upcycled and reclaimed materials, and literal trash

I'd love to hear what y'all think of these 💚✨😊

CW: swearing, Nazi mention, fantasy violence 

Made these two summers ago!
I gave one to a beautiful friend, have one hanging in my kitchen, and have this last unclaimed one. (If you'd like to purchase it and are BIPOC you can have it for just the price of shipping ~$15, if you're white it's $30+shipping)

With all the things going on I thought it would be a relevant time to post this heavy ass upcycled baby.

Also, stay safe and try to be mindful💚

Plant space 

Love this corner of my home
Feeling extra grateful for the green in my life lately

❝Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.❞ — Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

OH WAIT LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE

• Cecilia Payne won a scholarship to Cambridge.

• Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said to heck with that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.

• Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”

• Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne — after telling her not to publish).

• Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.

• Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard and the first woman to head a science department at Harvard. She also inspired entire generations of women to take up science.

• Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.

Just wanted to say that I admire and love people who openly ask for mutual aid. You are taking care of yourself and your loved ones by admitting you need help and asking for it in a culture that heavily shames and discourages it, and you honor people with your trust in their goodwill.

PSA about abuse for people who have experienced it or are going through it. 

Just because they provide you with the means to live doesn't mean they have the right to do whatever they like to you. Your consent or lack thereof, desire, will, thoughts and feelings still matter.

€65 per month is nothing to support a community of thousands of artists, but it is a lot for one person to afford. And that's where we have to ask all of you for help!

We have two places where you can donate to •ART:

CW: nudity, penises growing out of the ground 

So this drawing is originally from 2014, but I scanned and printed some off so I can add different things to it and I'm just so happy I've basically made my own coloring page

The Gender Census is now at 23,600 responses, ish.

Only 12% of respondents are 31 or older. The best ways to share the survey link to catch the attention of the 31+ crowd are Facebook and one-on-one sharing. Can anyone post the link on Facebook? :)

I've started my Master, my research question so far surrounds the idea of what electronic platforms add to the portrayal of queer bodies as others, often intermingling with beastly and monstrosity metaphors (often very positively)

I want to find queer creators of electronic art with a focus on body or emotional experiences. Twine hypertext, games, bots, poetry online, even twitter feeds or instagram.

If you wanna talk then DM or email ceciliewriteswords@gmail.com
