@compostablespork thanks for the bird friends!!
Hello, #ArtTips ! Here’s my first in a series of inside looks at my art process: shapes and bodies.
I use basically three shapes to construct figures: triangle, trapezoid, and pentagon, to shape the upper and lower torso and hips, respectively. You can keep it simple or stretch, squish, and contort those shapes for more exaggerated bodies!

drew this in #krita, by the way, which i'm starting to get a good groove with, finally.
also, today i learned a dangerous fact: i can in fact fit my laptop and large intuos on my desk without putting away my sewing machine, which i have been resistant to putting away every night because i'm in the middle of a project and i hate putting away tools. this is dangerous because i might never put it away again.
Caster Semenya, athletics, misogynoir Show more
How do you ban Caster Semenya for her unusually high T levels & not ban Michael Phelps for his unusually long arms? Her genetics, like his, just give her a natural competitive advantage. Another plain example of white women's tears used as a weapon to strip personhood from people who are uncomfortably unlike them. We see the clear parallels of racism & transphobia*–the boundaries of whiteness & gender are political violence & rest wherever power wants them

*maybe this isn't exactly what I mean, Caster Semenya is a cis gay Black woman I think, but it seems like she's being treated in some way as if she's trans–disqualified from comparison w/normative womanhood because of an unusual hormonal profile. It just doesn't make sense to me except as an exercise to police fictional exclusionary boundaries of what women should be.

A 3rd for my slowly-growing New Home Town series, which I suppose is to do with envisioning suburban #heterotopia & various kinds of detachment, otherness & alienation, both pleasantly exciting & disturbing.
would love to get this one risoprinted (~£35) so tips super appreciated & https://ko-fi.com/jallandale
