I think about the spider thing a lot, and now I’ve started imagining most spiders as ladies…! The most recent femfreq. video was interesting. I’ve never done the female signifier thing, but I’ve never really realized it either. o_o

same with spiders for me, but also i noticed one day that i refer to birds of prey as female by default. i guess i would extend that to most birds without sexual dimorphism, like crows?

fun fact— in my comic Cocoon, i intentionally do not put in any signifiers to the sex/gender of the robin. i wonder what people would infer…

actually now that i think about it, i guess i didn’t put any in for the worm either. haha. but i do plan to refer to it at some point, unlike the robin.

Woah! Beautiful! She should be friends with sunset lady

…actually…. this painting started out going to be sunset lady… but then i was too lazy to look up what she looked like so i just decided to paint someone new! haha… but they are friends!

happydorid replied to your post: comic fonts

I had this dilemma yesterday and just figured “what the heck, all upper case!” I might try looking for a good mixed case font for comics later. I picked up some generic looking comic fonts from blambot

Ah, i went looking at dafont for free ones and the one i like best so far is ‘suplexmentary comic’ which is mixed case. i’m SUPER not in the mood to go font-hunting again right now so i hope this works out fine enough DDDD:

but i guess the question i was trying to ask is… why does all-caps tend to look/read better in comics vs. mixed case?  it’s baffled me for a while
