Hi mastodon.art!

I've moved here from mastodon.social, am entirely new to the world of all things art, and am merely aspiring at the moment. Got myself an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and have been doodling around in Procreate. I'm hoping to get inspired and learn from all your amazing pieces of artwork.

"It is ever more relevant now to remind people that anti-racism is a practice and a daily dedication in how we live our lives. It's not just showing praise when someone is taken from us by the state, it's showing up everyday to face yourselves and this system."

Hell yeah, we had a remote team event today where everyone made laksa for lunch (laksa is one of the staples when we'd go out for lunch when we were in the office), I followed recipetineats.com/laksa-soup/ and it came out EXCELLENTLY. Not as good as our regular laksa place in the city, but I've definitely bought it from places that weren't nearly as nice.

You will never be done decolonizing your mind. You will never be done learning to not be racist.

You will do well for days, weeks, months, or even years, and then you will say or do something racist.

Accept that reality now. Set your mind on accepting that reality and apologizing for it now. Because if you don't, we'll see what's happened on the fediverse this past week play out again. White people being fragile and guarding their egos under a guise of "hurt feelings."

Can anyone recommend a good Australian short-run photo printing service? I just want to send somebody a dozen phone-quality pictures and get back one or two copies each in 6x4 or preferably even smaller like 3x2.

I'll just use snapfish otherwise, but would love to give some money to a local company first.

Someone suggested we support individuals today, and I think that we should all start with Artist Marcia X, @ArtistMarciaX ,
who's not only taught just me a lot, but a lot of other people too.

The Go Fund Me for their PhD will be at the bottom. They are more than half way there already, and we could finish that off today, easy.

If you're curious about what kind of work they do outside of here? Check out their website

...though a lot of the prettiness is lost in translation to a non-HDR JPEG, haha.

Kristina made rosemary chocolate-chunk cookies and OMG. Crack a smidge of salt over them, droool.

Chase does not approve of the rain and wind today. But he does approve of his blankie and the heater being on.

Beanie has made himself VERY comfortable on Kristina's legs.
