woc in cartoons

Now, I don’t see these has typical ‘hate’ comments but I find them ignorant AF!!

Funnily enough, that first comment actually came from a Muslim user who came across my posts without realising that I, myself, am actually a hijab wearing Muslim which is why my characters have hijabs. 

But to be honest, it shouldn’t matter who I am because *throws hands in air* MUSLIM WOMEN EXIST AND SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THINGS AND BECAUSE WHY NOT !!!!!!! 

This has been a PSA, thank you.

So here’s some things!

These drawings have been piling up.  Some are from months ago, some are from last week.  Haha.  Figured I’d post them in a set and introduce you to a character you may or may not already be familiar with!

Providence is the “she” Mephistopheles refers to while he’s mumbling about Hell’s employment benefits.  If Meph is the Devil in the Welcome to Hell universe, Prov is God.  I guess they used to have whatever the deity equivalent of a romantic relationship is. 

Providence is usually pretty cheery and energetic– Mephistopheles sometimes has a hard time keeping up with her.  She’s very creative and likes to plan really intricate experiments and projects (humanity, for instance), which she often gets absorbed with.  She’s also a little bit on the spontaneous/impulsive side, so she frequently does things on a whim.  This isn’t to say she doesn’t think about the consequences of her actions, but her general outlook is to just roll with things, even if (or inevitably when) they don’t go as planned.  She enjoys the chaos that ensues.

I was messing around with her outfits and hair a little bit, because it seems like she could have a slightly different style every time we see her.  Not sure yet!  Her standard hair is short and spiky, and I tend to default to drawing her with a button-down shirt and loosened tie.

Anyway, as with Lil and Jojo, these are just kinda rough concept sketches!  Things are still subject to change.   : )

(She also showed up in some Valentines Day cards I made!)

continuing off the post from last night. its also very important to me that human beings who are not skinny white cis girls are allowed to be delicate and flowery and ethereal and full of lace and introspective one-liners

like especially poc & woc, especially ppl with dark skin, or who aren’t skinny, bc it actually does go against the grain of what society expects of people who aren’t thin and white and cis fem.

& thin white (& sometimes pale-skinned asian) cis girls (while i do love!!! and while being one myself!!) have kind of scored the monopoly on being ethereal fantasy creatures of luminous beauty and goodness and quirkiness

I JUST THINK EVERYONE DESERVES TO HAVE FLOWER CROWNS AND CLOUDS OF LACE AND FLOAT UPSIDE DOWN IN TRANSPARENT PINK LAKES AND WEAR CONSTELLATIONS AS JEWELLERY AND BE DEPICTED FROM THE ANKLES WITH A THOUGHTFUL SONG LYRIC RECREATED IN LOOPING SCRIPT ABOVE THEM, not just thin cis pale-skinned girls, that’s all
