Retagged all the “knights of tumblr” posts I could find as “original knights of tumblr” so they’d be in their proper place now aw yeh
Here’s the thing.
Transphobes will still hate trans people regardless of how nice we are.
Queerphobes will hate queer people regardless of how nice we are.
Sexists will still hate women regardless of how nice we are.
Racists will still hate people of color regardless of how nice we are.
It doesn’t matter what we say or how we say it, they will still hate. And if your “support” is totally dependent on oppressed people’s tone and attitude, then you weren’t a supporter to begin with.
~COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN~
***PAYPAL ONLY, All prices are in USD***
I will draw ALMOST anything, including fandom things, mild smut, mild violence/gore, and certain mild kinks. I do, however, have the right to refuse a commission if I don’t like the subject. References and/or detailed descriptions are very much appreciated!
NOT ALL PRICES ARE FINAL, adding characters, backgrounds, etc, may change the final price but everything is negotiable within reason.
~Additional characters are half the price of the commission type for EACH extra character added to the total~
Please contact me via email or tumblr inbox if you are interested.
Sidenote: Anything not mentioned here [character sheets/turnarounds, creature designs, etc] can be discussed, just drop me a line and we’ll talk.
You can also visit my Commissions Page for more examples.
I don’t think i’ve ever reactionarily drawn anything before
anyway, here’s aveline
…recommending jpegs for print?
I fucking despair at what they teach people on design courses.
I once had to deal with a file submitted to the printers I worked for by a design college…a promotional thingy they’d produced. It has no bleed and used about a dozen different spot colours. These are the people teaching people how to design professionally and they had no technical understanding whatsoever!
So…here’s a tip. You’re working in print, save your files as 300dpi LZW compressed CMYK tiffs. If your document has multiple pages then use InDesign to combine them into a multi-page document and export them from there as a PDF. In your PDF export settings choose the PDF/X-1a:2001 setting. This will ensure that your resultant PDF is print quality (your printer may specify a different output setting, if so, follow their intructions). Assuming you’ve had the sense to set up the bleed correctly in your InDesign document (3mm bleed is standard, but some people use 5mm bleed) then you need to go into the Marks and Bleeds tab in your PDF output settings and select “Use Document Bleed Settings.” Do NOT export your PDF with crop marks, bleed marks, registration marks, colour bars or page information unless your printer has specifically requested that you do. In general the printer’s RIP will add those features exactly as they need them to be set up.
On spot colours: Each spot colour you use will require its own printing plate and this will, of course, add to the cost of your print. If you wish to use any spot colours in your print project you need to discuss that, and the additional costs incurred, with your printer first. Spot colours are really only ever necessary if you are working on a corporate project where they insist on a specific colour for their corporate design/logo, or if you are using metallic inks, spot UV or other special effects. Basically, stay away from using spot colours unless you know what you are doing.
My inbox is always open to anyone who has any technical design and prepress questions. You want to check my credentials? Before I worked in comics I worked as a professional graphic designer for ten years, specifically working as the in house designer for a print firm, meaning that I dealt on a day to day basis with the people who produced the print plates and ran the presses…if something was wrong, I heard about it, and had to fix it. Since then, I’ve worked in the comic book industry doing prepress, and you can see my wealth of experience in that field in my list of published credits here. I also handle all of the design and prepress needs of the UK’s largest comic convention, from passes and the programme to flyers and massive banners.
Tart Dress Progress. So excited for this!!! Sorry for the terrible lighting and photos. More better (finished) photos to come~
Imagine your icon roleplaying as you
Christopher: A woman?
Kirk: A crewman.
OH LOOK AT THAT THE 1960S
AND SHE’S IN COMMAND GOLD FUCKERS.
She’s not in Medical blue, a caretaking, feminine role.
Those in Gold were either OFFICERS, NAVIGATORS, PILOTS, TACTICAL OFFICERS, or WEAPONS SPECIALISTS.
I was just a 17-year old kid from the Bronx with dreams of becoming a scientist, and somehow the world’s most famous astronomer found time to invite me to Ithaca in upstate NY and spend a Saturday with him.
I remember that snowy day like it was yesterday. He met me at the bus stop. He showed me his laboratory at Cornell University. Carl reached behind his desk, and inscribed this book (Cosmic Connection) for me:
For Neil Tyson,
With all good wisdom to a future astronomer.
- Carl Sagan
At the end of the day, he drove me back to the bus station. The snow was falling harder. He wrote his phone number, his home phone number, on a scrap of paper. And he said, “If the bus can’t get through, call me. Spend the night at my home, with my family.”
I already knew I wanted to become a scientist, but that afternoon I learned from Carl the kind of person I wanted to become. He reached out to me and to countless others. Inspiring so many of us to study, teach, and do science. Science is a co-operative enterprise, spanning the generations. It’s the passing of a torch from teacher to student to teacher. A community of minds reaching back from antiquity and forward to the stars."
Neil DeGrasse Tyson, in the most inspiring moment of ‘Cosmos’

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
people who disseminate false information about food stamps are pieces of shit.
It was just recently that Mecklenburg County allowed Food Stamps to buy diapers and clothing. You got ppl out here who gotta sell their food stamps to buy bus passes and toilet paper
like stop it 5
You cannot buy food that’s been prepared either. So buying cooked chicken legs at Disney World is a crock. You cannot even buy cooked food in those grocery store delis. EBT websites lists the things you can buy or not, so a REPORTER saying this obviously has not done ANY research.
