Please, please, please keep writing, keep going and make more art and publish something I can buy and put on my teen fiction shelves because the kids I serve need to see writing like this. If I'd seen writing like this when I was their age maybe I wouldn't be 32 and only just getting to being a librarian. And even if I did, maybe I wouldn't feel half as shitty about that fact. All those maybes are so incredibly important. Make more. More maybes. All the maybes. Thanks and stuff.


I’m gonna talk about this a little bit, because it’s something I’ve been struggling with a lot lately. 

I don’t know if you guys know this, but writing comics doesn’t pay too well. In my specific case, at this specific moment, it pays approximately $0.00. 

Which unbearably sucks. Because I just got married. So I can’t really be like “I’ll just couch surf and work for free until someone throws money at me” anymore. I’m cool with financially ruining my life. But I’m not super down for ruining two lives.

Plus, trying to find comic writing work, it’s so slow. And so discouraging. And so impenetrable. And soooooooo sloooooooow. 

But it’s also important. Not just to me, but to the insanely humbling amount of people my work so far has affected. It’s important to the kids that are waiting for something that will make things a little better to show up on the teen fiction shelf. 

I’ve been struggling with this a lot lately. You hit those forks in your life-path where you either do the “adult/responsible” thing, or you do the thing that is truly important to you. I’m infinitely grateful for having married someone who’s sincerely excited to go down that second, bumpy-as-all-fuck path with me. 

But it’s still a hard decision to make. Every time another pitch is shot down or an artist has to leave a project. I don’t know. It’s rough. But I think it’ll be worth it. I hope.

Only one way to find out, I guess :)

(And thanks so much for your message. I wish you all the goddarn luck in the entire goshdamn world!)

And here is my full illustration I made for the  #togetherbreakfastzine2015 run by Jenny Son. Again I’m incredibly grateful and honored to have partake in this collab.

I’ve always been fascinated by the Goddess Temple in the series and wondered how everything connected. I went with a bit of a diarama sort of theme and I’m pleased with the result.

Also little easter egg. Probably not viewable at first but I drew it in there for the heck of it :3


I read @edgewatch76′s post about Gabriel’s role in the Omnic Crisis, as shown in Bastion’s short, and it finally clicked… I can’t believe I didn’t realize it sooner…  Gabriel Reyes is Overwatch’s Benedict Arnold.

(I ramble about US history below the cut; I just had to get it out of my system)

OK! i was debating this for actually a really really long time before i decided to just GO FOR IT! i was super reluctant to do this mostly because i wasn’t sure how many responses i’d get, but i do kinda need money so i’d like to earn some! as a lot of people already know, i’m going into college in a week and, as pretty much everyone knows, it is EXPENSIVE. my mom and sisters have been so incredibly supportive of me and i’m SO grateful, but i’d like to not rely on them as much as i have been. please keep in mind that these are not emergency commissions and i do not urgently need money. however, school costs are staggering, even with financial aid, and though i am applying, i do not yet have a secure job. any dollar counts, since that is just one more meal for me!

i’ll start by opening up 3 slots, just do see where it goes from there.

will do (pluses mean for an extra charge, highly depends on the situation):
fanart,  ships,  ocs (with photo references),  animals/pokemon,  simple mech,  mild gore,  +backgrounds,  +basic animation (blinking, walking, talking, etc),  +slight nudity,  talksprites,  fursonas,  etc. PLEASE don’t be afraid to ask if you’re not sure if i’ll be willing to do something for you.

will not do:
explicit nsfw/nudity,  anthro,  excessive gore,  complex mech,  complicated designs in static pixels (this is for your own good!),  complex animation,  any image portraying incest/pedophilia/racist imagery/otherwise sensitive material

thank you for reading and possibly considering commissioning me!! if you want to inquire, feel totally free to contact me via tumblr, facebook, or skype (gayaradia)! commissions will be via paypal only. i’d also really appreciate a signal boost, but don’t feel pressured! :0

“I would agree that when certain narratives are told outside of the communities where they originated from, they then can be misconstrued and turned into trauma porn to fill that unquenching thirst that people have to see others suffer. It guarantees the producers or publishers and audience, which further adds to the dehumanization of marginalized people when the stories are not told in a humane way and as entertainment or for profit. I don’t think the masses see beyond the trauma.” –Nahshon Anderson
