addicts (incl alcoholics) are not unworthy of care and support and love just because they’re dependent on something. make room for addicts in your disability activism, even the ones you don’t think are “good” addicts, even the ones you don’t think are trying hard enough, even the ones who you don’t think are trying at all. protect and value those people

GATES McFADDEN’S CAT VIDEOS ARE V. IMPORTANT

A SPECIAL HOLIDAY TREAT:

anonymous asked:

what are some of your favorite bands/singers?

Angel Olsen, Beach House, Ta-Ku, Baths, Blood Orange, Solange, FKA Twigs, Ella Fitzgerald, Tune-Yards, King Krule, Animal Collective, Toro Y Moi, many more that come and go.

seriously, though. I can’t express how pleased I was with blackwall’s romance. it was everything I wanted and even more than that. it was gentle and romantic, not bawdy or hyper-sexualized like I feared it might be. it was perfect. helaine and blackwall were perfect together. just leave me here.

how did you develope your art style? i'm in LOVE with it <3 <3 (and you hehe)

ahh thank you! <3 Quite frankly, I don’t feel like I’m at a place where I can share any sort of concrete knowledge concerning being even 50% confident about any sort of ‘style’ I may possess

That being said, I’m still developing my drawing skills, which is probably the most important part in developing a style. By going back to the basics, while at the same time telling myself that style comes naturally (like handwriting, made up of everything I’ve been exposed to in life), I’ve progressed to where I am now and there’s still soooo much to practice and learn! (figure drawing, value, line quality, etc)

In the past two years I’ve messed up 4+ big sketchbooks to experiment and tangibly see how my drawing changes. I also studied artists, not to copy or compare, but to try and see what elements of their work I could use to influence my own

TL;DR - I always tell myself to keep learning and never be satisfied, even when I feel like giving up ahAHAAA. Also a quote by Gary Panter! Don’t worry about a style. It will creep up on you and eventually you will have to undo it in order to go further. Be like a river and accept everything.”               ヽ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ *:・゚✧ progress bloggin
