"The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
 
Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile."

Emma Watson threatened with nude photo leak over UN speech on gender equality

Because of course she was.

I’m seriously disgusted by this. Also, not surprised…which makes it all the more disgusting.

A little process behind my “Zero Theorem” illustration for this weeks The New Yorker magazine.  Christoph Waltz is one of my favorite actors working today so I had a really great time drawing this.

A friend requested I make this, and so here it is, and I offer it to anyone who needs it, with all the authority vested in me by whoever vests these things. Print it out if you need to.
The best art advice ever given to me—ever, ever—was “Don’t be afraid to make bad art.”
You will make a whole lot of crap in your time. Some will be truly awful and some will be merely mediocre. And that is totally normal and totally fine and for the love of little green apples, just keep going, because that’s the only way I know to get to the good stuff eventually.
(I normally feel horribly egotistical mentioning my awards, but I think this counts as using that power for good.)

I’m so excited!!! I finally have my own home studio! No more painting in the breakfast nook! We can actually (gasp) EAT in the nook! Who knew? Still have to paint and decorate, but I feel mass creativity on the way. A big thank you to my husband and son for all their help! 😊😁💕💜💜💜

I’m working on several paintings simultaneously. Since I work in oils, I can allow one piece to dry in between layers while working on another. This is a crop of an under drawing of a piece I’m adding to the rotation this week. :)
