this is a mess of stuff I like looking at

which will probably be reference or inspiration for stuff I decide to make someday but never do because the year is 2019 and we are all blogging about the inconvenience of a full-swing apocalypse while we hide out from zombies and various animal flus under moss-covered cardboard boxes (the new trend in eco-hoboism) (latent in all of us is an artist and a hero but each identity is mutually exclusive so I will spend my whole life crooning over my potential and listening to typical new sad songs without chasing any particular ambition) (it is so hard to focus on being mediocre while the distracting world is busily ending) (but my advice is to do it alone)

Some modern dryads I did between commissions ! Tree ladies are so much fun to draw.

Here are Oak, Willow, Birch tree, Pine and Cherry tree.

"I’m no longer watching television in which middle-aged men figure out how to be men. I’d rather watch shows about teenaged girls figuring out what it means to be a monster"

Kelly Link, in an interview from last year that has really stuck with me because of this line.  (via andrewasalways)

So basically this is franwilde's fault, because I was on a tear about it the other night and she told me I needed to write a blog post. So here's a blog post. (Does anybody even read blogs anymore? Tap, tap, is this thing on? “140 characters is all anyone will ever need.”)

Milk kinship is a term used by anthropologists to denote kinship ties that are created when a child of one woman is breastfed by another woman. This relationship can also incorporate other related family members. For example, a child that was suckled may, in some communities, be considered siblings with the children of the woman that did the nursing…  to such an extent that they may not engage in sexual activities together as it is considered incestuous!

I am a woman. I am a practicing attorney. I am the only woman in my office over the age of 35 who doesn’t color her hair. I have some gray, but not a lot yet, and I never seriously considered coloring my hair until this job. I don’t want to: it’s expensive and a pain in the ass to keep up. About a year ago, I was in court, and a female attorney walked in with curly, bobbed, naturally gray hair, and her mere act of publicly displaying her natural hair color seemed not just unusual but defiant. Meanwhile many men in my office and in the courts have gray hair, and I doubt anyone thinks twice about it.
