Wooooops

So I wasn’t sure if I’d have tatters of my existence on my person at SPX until, of course, tonight. Only My printer ran out of black ink before the flip side of my SFW sketchzinething~

So I will have thirteen [ *thunder&lighting* ] copies of this perverse erosketch zineminicomthing stowed in my bag as some kind of token of trade and calling card.

So if onea yous sees me there and flags me down, we can sheepishly trade zines like queers do.

This was such a lovely thing to find after last year’s show. 

When you put your blood, sweat and tears into something like SPX, you HOPE that an experience like this is what people - especially newcomers - get take away from it - along with fat wallets.

That jaredlovestodraw took the time to so beautifully illustrate his time at the show (complete with cameos - I SEE YOU dharbin ) blew every single one of us away. So thank you, Jared - Thanks again!  

There’s nothing better.

This is my journal comic about SPX this year. I had a great time and can’t wait for next year.  smallpressexpo
I’m going to start doing these journal shorts about comics art and life in anthro-animals.

With SPX fast approaching I thought I’d re-share my journal comic about last years show. I love everything about
spx

that’s it that’s the feel

Today, September 8th, is the 60th birthday of Ruby Nell Bridges - a woman who, being the first black child to attend an all-white school in New Orleans in 1960, underwent a traumatizing ordeal that came to signify the deeply troubled state of race relations in America.

On her first day of school at William Frantz Elementary School, during a 1997 NewsHour interview Bridges recalled that she was perplexed by the site that befell, thinking that it was some sort of Mardi Gras celebration:

"Driving up I could see the crowd, but living in New Orleans, I actually thought it was Mardi Gras. There was a large crowd of people outside of the school. They were throwing things and shouting, and that sort of goes on in New Orleans at Mardi Gras.”

Only six-years-old at the time, little Ruby had to deal with a slew of disgusting and violent harassment, beginning with threats of violence that prompted then President Eisenhower to dispatch U.S Marshals as her official escorts, to teachers refusing to teach her and a woman who put a black baby doll in a coffin and demonstrated outside the school in protest of Ruby’s presence there. This particular ordeal had a profound effect on young Ruby who said that it “scared me more than the nasty things people screamed at us.”

Only one teacher, Barbara Henry, would teach Ruby and did so for over a year with Ruby being the only pupil in her class.

The Bridges family suffered greatly for their brave decision. Her father lost his job, they were barred from shopping at their local grocery store, her grandparents, who were sharecroppers, were forcibly removed from their land, not to mention the psychological effect this entire ordeal had on her family. There were, however, members of their community - both black and white - who gathered behind the Bridges family in a show of support, including providing her father with a new job and taking turns to babysit Ruby.

Part of her experience was immortalized in a 1964 Norman Rockwell painting, pictured above, titled The Problem We All Live With. Her entire story was made into a TV movie released in 1998.

Despite the end of the segregation of schools in the United States, studies and reports show that the situation is worse now than it was in the 1960s.

Today, still living in New Orleans, Briges works as an activist, who has spoken at TEDx, and is now chair of the Ruby Bridges Foundation.

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

As I understand this ruling, it means that businesses now have to pay extra to ISPs to have access to their websites through that ISP provided at a reasonable speed. If you don’t pay, users’ access to your website will be slowed to a crawl - so independent people and small businesses can forget about getting onto that high speed access tier. 
This means that the American internet is going to be firmly under the control of those who have the most money. You’ll only get to see the content of those who can pay the ISPs to provide access at a reasonable speed. This means that you can expect to see skewed representation of just about everything, with those bigger businesses who can afford to pay ISPs a premium for access deciding what you can and cannot read, view and consume on the internet.
This is not something that we have in the UK. Our ISPs compete with each other to provide higher speeds, better services and lower prices, but because there’s a monopoly in the US of a few ISPs who provide services, they can afford to do this to you. You can’t go anywhere else, after all.
Everyone in the US needs to sign that petition, call their representatives, write angry letters and do whatever you can to tell your government that this ruling is Not Okay.

Maybe you guys are sick of this post but It’s really important to freelance artists and pretty much everyone who uses the internet, so here it is again.  \o0o/

Not that mainstream American media isn’t generally pretty terrible, but like half the time I see a Tumblr post along the lines of

"HOW COMES THE NEWS ISN’T COVERING THIS? THIS NEEDS MORE NOTES!"

and I’m like

"Yeah I heard about this on NPR like a year ago. Why didn’t you?"

Here’s what I follow for my news. Please feel free to reblog and add:

Adding:

Not Specifically News but Often About Current Events:

I’ve fallen out of my News Habit due to Reasons and fallen into dread newsish magazine hell, but I really need to get back in the saddle :/ Some of my links are programs that get rebroadcast on NPR stations (Like DemoNow, but they play the live broadcast at 8AM which one might miss.)

& I hate the mentality that OP is talking about….like, I’m not a journalist and have no contractual obligation to inform internet randos about things! It’s easier than ever to hear independent and international media, stop relying on tumblr to teach you things, you know what I’m saying?
