racism/supermarkets/cynic 

I don't even have any corporate qualms with the UK supermarkets putting aside their differences to air ads back-to-back to stand against racism.

But for it to even be news doesn't warm my heart -it's a damning insight into Britain's racism.

Just reminded of all the times ive seen backlash against representation in throwaway facebook ads, or when Stormzy got piled upon (and misquoted) for accurately calling out how racist the UK is

There's such nice sunlight today. It seemed like a shame to not have any plots to take pictures of so I whipped up two new version of one of my favs from .

Both versions of Maze are up in my shop

I love how every old sci-fi show had its own way of raiding the tv studio's historical costume closet to save on budget.

Doctor Who had it built into the premise that sometimes they go to the past, so they can use all the BBC's Victorian and WW2 costumes

Star Trek from Next Gen on had the Holodeck to accomplish this

But original StarTrek hadn't thought of the Holodeck so they were always making the flimsiest excuses to have 1930s Gangster planet, Ancient Rome planet, Wild West planet...

I think this image will now be my default response for when people ask "what's a piece of art you admire that you wish you had made?"

I found this image to send to @Cryoclaire a few days ago and I can't stop staring at it

brit talking about the weather vol.10000 

I felt like I didn't get much done today (and had a big list of to-dos) so i'm staying up late. But 30 minutes since everyone else went to bed, some insomnia-inducing hailstones are pummelling down loudly and now I feel empowered by my choice of night-owlery

Handmaid's Tale 

I don't usually consciously register lyrics, but was listening to Every Day Is Exactly The Same by NIN having just finished The Handmaid's Tale and was tuning in to the lyrics and it's eerily fitting :o

Silly comic 2, CW: blood, implied further violence 

The second prompt was "Break Stuff", so I made a sequel

Silly comic, CW: violence and a mean swear 

This throwaway cartoon I did for the Gosh/Broken Frontier online Drink and Draw seems to be appreciated, so I might as well share it elsewhere. The theme was "worst day at work"
