When you’re making one pattern and then realize there is a another better pattern if you hide the right layers.

Pieces of something I’m working on for a client in my time I’m not at my job or working on REM (more once it’s done!)
I actually really like doing this kind of drawing, I’ve discovered. Not that I’m good at it, but it’s very meditative for me. Pieces of something I’m working on for a client in my time I’m not at my job or working on REM (more once it’s done!)

So our distro site is here for the physical pickup action. = )
Our HQ Metropolarity.net needs a lot of love, but since AMC planning took over my life, and I work on computers for $$$, I’m taking a summer vacay from spending any time massaging relevant blog content (although there’s so much planned!). It IS good for keeping up on our events though. 
However… the insidious FBook is still the easiest place to keep up on our events, and a lot of our network’s events in Philly and the surrounding area. So peep us there if you really wanna keep up on what we’re doing, where we’re going. (Like actually just check the page from time to time, cause you know how FB likes to manipulate what information shows up for who and when.)
Oh AND WE HAVE AN OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS TILL JULY 31st DON’T BE SHY NOW PRETTY PLEASE PRETTY PRETTY
OH AND WE’LL BE AT ripexpo IN PROVIDENCE THIS AUGUST 2-3rd w/ heyanniemok & superdefstar 

Whoa whoa wish I’d seen this earlier because this looks like a supz rad thing to submit to. Followerz take note! cyborgmemoirs:

“Just know this: we all mess up from time to time. But do not be afraid to tackle female/PoC/LGBT characters. Is there a chance you might go horribly wrong? Sure. Is there a chance that people will crucify you for it? Yes, and probably rightly so. Diversity and feminism are topics that your writing should treat with utmost care. But! This should not intimidate you to the point of not trying. Female/PoC/LGBT people are just that: people. We’re humans. Write us with the same confidence you apply to your straight, white, male cast.”

Author Marie Lu, "Writing Diverse Fiction: A Practical Guide" (Publishing Crawl)

Pause the art content for some thoughts:

I think about this a lot in my personal comics and the stuff I make at work. If I don’t focus on it, I do notice that I will draw in more white cis men than should get their fair share. Which sucks. I don’t want to read about these white men, I already see them everywhere in the media. So why do I keep drawing them? It’s important to strive as an artist/creator to be conscious of who you’re representing in your work, and who you’re leaving out. It doesn’t just apply to gender/sexuality/race, but also body type, class, disability. Looking at my stuff right now, it’s far from a shining example of diversity in these domains, but I’m working on writing and drawing a wider variety of people. It’s important and I urge all my other fellow artists to look over their own work and do the same.

I don’t think this one is on his site, but here’s another tiny cartoon Troy asked me to make. This one would accompany writing about moral judgement, of course. It’s more diagrammatic than anything else. I don’t think this one is on his site, but here’s another tiny cartoon Troy asked me to make.

My colleague Troy Campbell asked me to make some short comics to help illustrate the concepts he’s doing research in. This one is about “subjective consumer mastery” and stars Troy himself. The gist of it is that we get more enjoyment out of something and like it more when we feel a mastery over it (whether real or imagined). You can read a bit more about Troy and his research here. 
p.s. I’ll post the rest later. My colleague Troy Campbell asked me to make some short comics to help illustrate the concepts he’s doing research in.
