You’re terrified of being alone. Anything you do now will be motivated by that fear. You have to stop worrying about finding love again. It will come when it comes. Get comfortable with being alone. It will empower you.

IMPORTANT P S A FOR ROGUE ONE FANS

chirrut imwe is a blind chinese main character in one of the biggest movie franchises in history!! he is disabled but is never seen as a burden, or at a disadvantage, or even given special treatment!!!!!!!! hes a kickass blind man who more than pulls his weight (HE SAVES EVERYONE LIKE WE LITERALLY WOULDNT HAVE ANY STAR WARS MOVIE WITHOUT HIM) and is an essential part to the rogue one crew, rebellion, temple, star wars galaxy, movie, world, galaxy, universe, etc. he deserves all ur love and appreciation!!!!!!

HELLO!! It finally happened–after 9 long months, I decided to continue that mermaid AU!! I started this about a month ago but life happened–I got sick and lost motivation in art but I’m trying to pick it up again!

This time, I added some subtle angst buried underneath all this fluff. 

Every day after school, Yuu comes by their spot to be with Mika. They have their silly moments– and now Mika and Yuu are at this comfortable stage where they really care for each other, despite their physical/physiological differences. However, Mika will realize that Yuu is still, in fact, a human–that Yuu will someday want to live his life in the surface world and leave Mika behind.

I’m going to do a series of illustrations to empower fat women and to fight fat phobia, body shaming, and the objectification of the female body.

More to come.

Having confidence really does threaten some people and it’s like no need to feel threatened pal!!! You can have confidence, self worth and self love too, you’re allowed to love yourself, know your self worth and be confident despite what society teaches you. You’re beautiful and you deserve kindness, love and respect from others and yourself ✨

PEOPLE THAT CAN HURT YOU
THE ONES THAT CAN REALLY HURT YOU
ARE THE ONES THAT ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO DO IT

After an extended hiatus, my zine wife Amber and I are happy to report that our Etsy store is back open! Also, after much labor, printing snafus, and other unforeseen mishaps, our 4th issue in the Native American Feminist Musings series is now available: Empower Yoself Before You Wreck Yoself #2! This issue includes: my first ever comic featuring Rez Cat taking on #NoDapl, an interview with Cecely Todacheenie about being a skating badass, plus lots of poetry, artwork, photography, short stories and more. Also, thank you to all of the wonderful ladies who submitted and were willing to share their vulnerabilities and strengths with us. Tatum Bowie, Kogee Clark, Jessica Gonzales, Bree Manson, Erica S. Qualy and Eryn Wise, sending you all much love and light. Amber and I are also happy to announce that our zines are now available in eBook format which are easily downloadable. But if you’re old-school and still prefer a paper copy, we have those available in black and white with a free button to boot. And lastly, this zine is dedicated to those at Standing Rock, the Attawapiskat youth and the missing and murdered Indigenous women of Canada. Happy Galentine’s Day! Ahehee’!
