Thank you @liaizon@social.wake.st I'm really loving the potential here. I also signed up on Mastodon (@tilvids@mstdn.social)

Just found this official looking picture of me taken at a Art Basil Miami Tumblr party a few years ago..

BFA.com wants $75 for the high res version. Somehow I don't think I should have to pay that...

@_ if thats the case I need to up my cuteposting or something

@toast I was thinking more like matching people based on how much of the state they are down to burn down while still being down to cuddle...

Has anyone made a serious attempt at any fediverse based dating thing yet? Even like a bot that matches people based on interest or something? Even if it was joke-y dating I think it would be an interesting thing to attempt.

@worldofpeace @greenrobot gets credit for posting it here. I had to reshare it from my own account cause it was so good.

I'm doing an online course on prop illustration, and the current exercise is to draw a lamp from a freely chosen setting, starting with at least 20 quick silhouettes.

It's fun to think that behind every prop there could be a whole backstory.

Also from today: Some progress on the "Two Friends on the Dike" drawing. I inked the blacks over yesterday's pencil sketch. Tomorrow I'll start shading. It's a very grainy photo, so I'm not sure what technique to use. [eying shyly in @smerp 's direction] 😅

"In the context of settler colonialism voting is the “civic duty” of maintaining our own oppression. It is intrinsically bound to a strategy of extinguishing our cultural identities and autonomy."

"If they can’t kill or imprison the organizers, then fold them into the bureaucracy or turn their struggles into businesses. At the end of the day, not everyone can be white supremacists, but everyone can be capitalists."

@ben if I call you a onion and I hate onions then my usage of the word onion is a slur but onion isn't a type of slur in general.
