a sad, fat dragon with no friends

I didn’t really mean to spend 85% of my drawing time this morning playing around with this warm-up doodle, yet here we are.

I feel like maybe I should make a Twitter account, but I don’t really get what Twitter is for.

For that matter, I don’t really get what Tumblr is for.

i want science fiction and fantasy to engage more critically with concepts of beauty, desirability, and attraction as it pertains to dehumanized (but human) bodies. people of color, (and black people specifically), disabled people,  trans women. which of our bodies are acceptable and which are not. which bodies survive into the future and which don’t. who among us are disappeared from the past, and from alternate timelines, and strange non-existent worlds?

i suppise i would just like to understand the mechanisms at play that make it so  skin tinged bright green from copper based blood is considered attractive when brown skin is not? 

why gigantic, pointed ears or tails or fur but not amputated limbs? 

hobbits but not little people? dwarves but not someone small because of muscular dystrophy or ALS?

alien languages cool but deaf accents awkward? 

why are hearing aids or cochlear implants or service animals less conceivable in scifi futures than bionic people, when it is we, the disabled, who have become masters of integrating biology and technology?

it’s been said before. but the oppressed — and i think this is especially true of black people and disabled people — live lives closest to scifi realities, even though we are consistently written out of sci fi futures. 

if we interrogate our attractions, romantic or aromantic, sensual or sexual or asexual, who we want to sit next to, who we will hold hands with, who we stare at and who we avert our gaze from, it becomes clear how much institutions use concepts of beauty and desirability  to uplift the humanity of some folks and to gut it out in others.

what i’m trying to say is that a lot of us have the ability to love and like and be into a lot of things, but our internalised -isms makes us accept or believe certain bodies as ugly or wrong at face value. 

we generally use ugly to mean less human, and i think there’s potential for scifi to really wrestle with that and unpack it.

gaming in color

Gaming in Color was released today. If you’ve got a couple dollars to spare to stream/download it, it’s definitely worth checking out.

(Full disclosure: I am featured in this documentary.)

I’ve been working on concept art for the webcomic I’m planning, and I ended up going pretty hardcore when I was playing around with shading and highlights on this concept portrait.  I’m mostly just making these portraits for my own future reference (nailing down facial features, hair styles, etc.), but I thought this one turned out pretty cute and I feel like it’s been a while since I posted any art, so.

My favorite Portlandia characters are the non-speaking ones who just kind of sit there and nod along ambiguously while another character goes off on like a full minute rant to them.
