I wrote up a response to this thing that was out recently, although it took me forever to get it drawn up. I’ve done A LOT of stuff on street harassment. (including a satirical psa) I’m probably never going to directly write about it again but here you go.

Reminder one of the anthologies I have a comic in is debuting at SPX! Find out more about the "Subcultures anthology" over at the Ninth Art press blog. I did a whole thing about my experience with goth fetish clubs. I’m looking forward to seeing it in print! (I don’t know if I’ll be making an appearance myself, I wasn’t able to get a table.) Whit and Dan will have copies for sale however, so keep an eye out!

Feeling weird about being a gamer right now…

BB! This is lovely! It is a controversial time to be a gamer, there is a divide between “us” and “them”, as opposed to what games should represent which is having fun “together”

I keep meaning to do a proper step by step for a makeup break down, next time using my dslr. but this is one of the ways I draw in my eyebrows starting up with a “smudge brush” and finishing with an angled brush to draw in the tail

This ask box took awhile I’m sorry about that! I wanted to really get into it though although as usual it kind of meandered from just “How to research diverse characters” but hopefully I helped? It kind of covers how to try and write characters and I guess is in the same vein of my “Strong female characters comic

Everyone has writing methods for character development but heres mine I guess.

diversity is good! but even better is diversity that is well written is I guess my point.

Anonymous asked: hi!! this is the hair related anon and thank you so much for your reply<333 it means a lot to me that you'd put so much work into your answer, and i super appreciate it! i ended up talking to my boyfriend like right after having read it and i told him that i didn't like having long hair very much and he was like "oh okay" about it like you said! he explained that he was just curious about how i'd look with long hair and i jokingly offered to buy a wig and he just laughed haha (thanks again!<333)

I’m so happy to hear that! I’m glad my advice turned out well, there was a point I was like “oh god what if I am saying the wrong things”

it also totally makes sense he probably never even considered he was asking anything of a serious nature. Thanks for the update! Continued good luck and you know rock on with what sounds like a bad ass hair cut! <3 <3

Anonymous asked: hi! so uhm, i've been dating this guy for like 7 months and there's only one sort of spot of confusion tho, he's been asking me to try growing my hair out (the sides and back are gone and the top flops to one side to my jaw) but i haven't had long hair for 5+ years. in reverse, he'd been growing a beard for over a year and i said a few times that i'd love to see him without it and he shaved it, no questions asked... so the question is; should i try growing out my hair?

Hopefully this is helpful although it does read as being a little aggressive, everyone’s situation is different but don’t let anyone make you feel like you aren’t attractive or worth it just because you don’t perfectly meet their ideal. Not everyone likes having long hair, its a lot of work just to grow out and maintain. If you want to try thats ok too! I own like 20 wigs because I like to change how I look, but I have never been willing to date anyone who wanted me to grow my hair out either. It was nice of him to shave for you but it doesn’t actually mean you have to change your hair. But if you talk to him about why he might be like “oh ok”

I’m having a hard time buckling down and doing some comic stuff, so lets do some ask boxs! Opinions, thoughts, advice, makeup and whatever! I’ll try to draw responses for some of them depending on what I get. :&gt; 

Lets do it again! I also do answer privately if its a personal matter. I&#8217;m always happy to provide feed back as well, my fanmail and ask box are always open. UuU /

So here’s a big comic about a recent hotel trip where my GF and I got asked if we wanted two beds and the complex frustration concerning that. In the end the hotel staff were very apologetic and very eager to throw stuff at us to distract us. But there were some core straight privilege issues I wanted to address in comic form.

One of the first times my first girlfriend and I went to another city on our own, she had specially booked a queen bed so we could actually snuggle comfortably, and when we got there we discovered that they’d put us in a twin room instead. I didn’t want to make a big deal about it, and I can’t remember if we did and there weren’t any queens left or we didn’t because we weren’t keen on going down to a potentially homophobic reception worker specifically to demand that they put us somewhere we could sleep together. I ended up having a really sore back after walking around the city all day so we couldn’t even push the beds together and snuggle that way. :( It was balls. Don’t do this, hotel staff.

I’m really sorry to hear that, it’s true though when I’m traveling with my gf the best part is when we get to share a queen instead of a twin like we do at home. I booked us airbnb before and I was only looking at places where they specifically listed themselves as Lgbt friendly because last thing I wanted was to accidentally stay at a homophobs place. Which is also a concern not everyone has to consider in traveling with a significant other. :/
