Destruction in Human Form and his Venomous Arachnid
I’m so happy that Johto Pokémon are making a return to Sun and Moon! I hope we’ll see more instead of just Kanto pokes. I decided to draw this a couple of days ago, but I didn’t realize it’d look so similar to @technoclove‘s drawing! Sorry about that! ;~;
A mutant Digimon which has digivolved in a very harsh environment and
become very small as an Ultimate Digimon. However, it still has
incredible destructive power.
What I like about this thing and its whole fucked up mutant family is that they’re just literal interpretations of the very small sprites on a 90s virtual pet. Like, most forms you can get on one of those tiny things is just a circle with limbs. And while some of the early Digimon were given more detail when translated into fully drawn art, this one just stayed a circle with limbs. And that set a precedent for a whole fucking genus of circles with limbs. Amazing.
“When my daughter died on the day she was born, a traditional definition of hope was sucked out of my body. I’m not saying I’m proud of this, but it just happened. For me, what became important was learning to breathe again in a way that used regular air. The word aspiration has a breathing sense to it. It dawned on me that we have to breathe and to find reasons to stay alive on our own terms. Sometimes that doesn’t come from what we’ve been told our whole lives.
I believe in art the way other people believe in God. I’m not trying to make a tricky sentence. It’s just true. I have found reasons to breathe again by living in communities of people who choose self-expression over self-destruction. It’s another way to form hope, without hierarchizing it so that you’re looking up toward a God, or someone smarter or more famous than you are. It’s a lateral definition of hope where you just need each other, and you need to stand up and not leave each other hanging.” -Lidia Yuknavitch, in a conversation
