Softly sketched, edges gentle, colors cheery, framing nostalgic—Tatsuro Kiuchi’s works look like the way we view the past; infused with style and glamour, each image is bold, full of narrative, and leaves one feeling deeply: wistful, joyful, thoughtful.
Sweet picnic collab with Ashley Ronning from a couple of months back. Forgot to post the whole thing! What a cutie, we gotta do this again sometime!
do you ever get really motivated to do something and you get really excited about it and then when you get home you’re just like nah

Check out the contrast between these search results. Not a single “loser”, “easy”, “desperate”, “stupid”, “scum” or similar insult in the search results for fathers.
Why, society, are single fathers so often seen with sympathy and admiration, yet single mothers are painted as a washed-up, disgusting strain on the system?
This is fucked.
I know this is rhetorical, but we know the reason.
Motherhood is not valued in this country, it’s demanded. We have people fighting tooth and nail against abortion, birth control, and then any social program that helps poor mothers. If the world sees you as a woman, you are expected to desire, birth, and raise children, and if you don’t do that, or you do it while poor, or single, or not white, you’re not only failing as a woman but as a mother.
But men, they don’t get defined by their reproductive abilities! They get to be multi-dimensional! And if they spare an occasional thought for the children they brought into the world, it’s a cherry on top of their identity as a person.
Women don’t get the luxury of existing as people outside of parenting, even in 2013. And until we do, this is the shit we’ll be dealing with.

A slightly modified page of an unused comic I made for Borrowed Tails. The original drawing was inspired in this cat, Andy, but it didn’t really look like him, so that’s what I fixed. He is one of the best cats I’ve met in the world… He’s sick right now so his owners are making a funding for him and I contributed with this drawing theyre printing as a postcard.
