Prompt: smell

Amortentia, the most powerful love potion in the world.

“I must say, I find that girl utterly delightful. Flat as a board, enormous birthmark the shape of Mexico over half her face, sweating for hours on end in that sweltering kitchen, while Mendl, genius though he is, looms over her like a hulking gorilla. Yet without question, without fail, always and invariably, she’s exceedingly lovely.”

I’ve seen people blog ‘yeah the pictures suck but that’s celebrity life in the 21st century’.

No. The Sun took pictures of a woman’s breasts and ass. Zoomed in on it. Made a headline out of it. WITHOUT HER CONSENT.

Don’t tell yourself that this is normal. It’s not NORMAL that a newspaper invades a woman’s privacy like that, and then SHAMES her for her own body. This has absolutely nothing to do with fame, only with misogyny. And no woman should have to deal with that kind of shit.

Guess what? Feminism isn’t always fun and it certainly isn’t easy. Feminism means calling out systems and people. Even systems that we think are so ingrained in our society that they have become normal. Don’t tell yourself this is normal. Don’t normalise misogyny like that.

Was stuck at home today because I scraped and bruised my knee pretty terribly and I got bored so I decided to watercolor a Wes Anderson still. 

This one’s from Moonrise Kingdom. I wanted to paint the still of Suzy Bishop looking into her binoculars from the lighthouse but someone’s already done that so I picked this still instead…because of Suzy’s cat.
