i just wanted to take this time to thank everyone who has donated or commissioned so far and how much it means to us and how much you’ve helped us out so far!!
We’ve gotten such lovely messages from people who are encouraging us and it feels so nice to know we’re not alone in this by any means. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thanks to all of you I’m getting closer to meeting the love of my life and that means everything to me.
So far we’ve raised $217!!! AND THAT”S so great. that’s literally a whole two weeks pay check for me and you’ve made things so much easier.
However, we still need about $583 in order to meet the deadline. Every week it gets closer to the holiday season it gets more and more expensive, and we’re trying to avoid the christmas prices which are ridiculous. We’re doing everything we can to make it before then.
You can also donate at my paypal, email@example.com, or at Ziek’s paypal firstname.lastname@example.org if that suits your fancy instead!!
Again, thank you so much. Every dollar helps me and ziek get closer and is one less extra shift i have to take at my shitty minimum wage job.
hugs all y’all. thank you
Will those stellar free-speech advocates on the right stand up for Dr. Misee Harris, or will they remain silent?
Dr. Misee Harris, who also was the Black Bachelorette, just found herself in an impossible situation after posting support for Ferguson and Mike Brown’s family on her private Facebook page. Dr. Harris was given a choice to resign or shut up. Here’s the story:
Hi everyone! You might see this a couple times so bear with me!
I’m working on an illustration assignment about modern China and the fast food business which relies on advertisements and billboards. I need some pretty simple phrases translated to use in the image (things like “yummy chicken,” or ”eat our burgers”).
Please email me at email@example.com if you think you can help. Thanks!

Hello friends! I have some bittersweet news. I will be closing my Storenvy shop on the 15th of September. (You will still be able purchase my art prints on Society6.) I’m doing this so I can focus on commissions and on other, more serious endeavors. The shop will close to orders on Monday, September 15th, at midnight EST. Last orders will go out on Thursday, September 19th.
I’ve taken down the pin sets that were up for sale, and added the deal I offer at conventions: any 3 pins for $5. I’ve also added a few more stickers for sale! As a farewell gift, please use the code “please" at checkout for

Darren Hunt of Utah
The murder of young Black Men by police continues.
oh for fucks SAKE
Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…
He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.
and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…
Exactly! This is evil.
are you finished with that anime yet?
NO I HAVE NOT FINISHED THAT ANIME AND I NEVER WILL!

paul robertson, the popular pixel animator recently featured on popular kids show & tumblr favorite gravity falls, clearly has a huge woman problem and likes to draw cutesy racist pics of women being raped and murdered. If you have the stomach for a depiction of the murder…
My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.
And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie."
