happy april fools daaay everyone!! i wanted to draw something silly so have this weird swapping i made haha. it’s a bit messy so sorry for that.
i drew the quail boyfriends for me, anghel/ nageki for @hindre ( just because she is my favourite artist and i love her art!! so much!! ) and tohri/ shuu for @kaijinkyn ( she’s been v supportive and lovely to me lately and aaa a ).
I’m not gonna say what i swapped exactly that’s something for you to figure out. :’^)
OK BUT REALLY TRULY VERILY AND HONESTLY the contemporary prejudices against skin color and race that we hold in mexico (and i suspect the rest of latin america as well) are reflective of the old colonial caste system where the white spaniard was at the top and the indigenous and african people were at the bottom and the way to move up the social ladder was through mestizaje with someone of a lighter skin color. the entire concept of “mejorar la raza” and our linking of darker skin = lower socioeconomic background are basically echoes of “de español e india nace mestizo”….. it’s easy to think that because the colonial system was abolished hundreds of years ago it has no influence in our lives anymore but colonialism has deep roots in our society
Ahhh, you asked for a picnic date that was rained on! Gosh, I am so enamored by the thought of these two goofs being so in love with the idea of a picnic date, and then they just go and pack everything up without regard to the weather~
Regardless, I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful new year!!
We’d like to take this time to once again thank everyone who contributed to the zine whether by submitting art, buying it, and/or spreading the word. It’s because of you that it was possible for us to do this and we can never overstate how grateful we are for your support.
The original concept is of a guard in front of a toy store that starts with an ‘S’ or like a faimly crest. Through the telephone call his outfit evolved through beautiful art with talented artists. Thank you all for joining in on the call!

champagne (least favorite fandom)- well I mean I don’t want to like. start any shit and remember I’m not talking about specific individuals when I say this and just bc you’re in this fandom doesn’t mean I automatically think you’re a terrible person but,,, I think it’s the hetalia fandom honestly,,, like even just thinking about it makes me tired I’m sorry,,, not good memories
