You know that feeling you get when you are so afraid that either you can't look or you can't blink in fear of something changing before your eyes? That fear of moving past what you know you are now and what you could become later if you tried? Don't be afraid to blink. Somethings are meant to happen.
This blog a recording of the projects I am working on and my timeline of learning what it's like to be an actual graphic designer, comic book artist, and a 20-something out in the world.

Right so over here in England I watch the news every evening and I’ve heard literally NOTHING about the shit going on in Ferguson right now. All my knowledge of it has come from Tumblr. That is so, so wrong. It makes me wonder what else isn’t being reported on.
Stay safe, my darlings, in whatever part of the world you live in.
you see this shit?? this is tear gas being fired at the peaceful protestors in ferguson
THIS IS NOT HOW YOU PROPERLY FIRE TEAR GAS
in riots you are “supposed” to aim for the ground. doing other wise can cause serious injuries or death
ferguson police literally do not care for the lives of anyone there and its disgusting
The awkward/uncomfortable moment when your white followers don’t get it.
I’m sorry but can I PLEASE make a public announcement. If you think any of the following:
"BLACK PEOPLE ARE RACIST TOO!"
"BLACK MEN NEED TO STOP SAGGING SO THAT COPS WON’T THINK THAT THEY’RE THUGS AND SHOOT THEM!"
"MIKE BROWN MUST HAVE DONE SOMETHING!"
"BLACK PEOPLE COMPLAIN TOO MUCH"
"RACISM IS ONLY PERPETUATED BY BLACK PEOPLE. BLACK PEOPLE ARE MORE RACIST THAN WHITES!"
"WHITE PRIVILEGE DOESN’T EXIST"
"EVERYONE HAS AN EQUAL CHANCE IN AMERICA!"
Please do me a huge favor and just unfollow, unsubscribe and walk away.I am so tired of seeing people apologize for racism in my feed. I am so sick of white people reblogging my posts and then coming in with their “well, as a white person” whitesplaining. Look, i don’t need you to come onto my platform and try to educate me about racism or educate me about how things work and how privilege doesn’t exist and how things are all equal. They AREN’T. We wouldn’t be having this conversation if they were.And I wish some of ya’ll would GET that and stop trying to debate every thing i reblog like i’m talking about you. Miss thing, if I’m talking about you you’ll feel lit. You’ll know right away when you read this that i’m talking about you. And if you catch feelings don’t even let me know how you feel because I don’t care. Unsubscribe, unfollow, go away. I am so tired of sitting silently while you try to dog out people that look like me and suffer because of it.
I’m so happy that i’ve given you some sort of encouragement or sense of self through my youtube page and other things but I’m not about people who support racism on my shit that love me when i’m telling them to feel great about themselves but hate me when i’m trying to address a system that tells black people that they are inferior. I’m tired of “black lives matter” posts being turned into “WE’RE ALL HUMAN!” or “THIS ISN’T A COLOR ISSUE I’M COLORBLIND”. You can afford to be colorblind.A black man in this country CANNOT. If you don’t know why then look at the fucking news these past few weeks alone. How many unarmed black men need to be shot for you to see that color is VERY much part of the issue? Open your fucking eyes.
Anyways, this whole Ferguson thing has really been getting me. I’m really inside my feelings right now.and I am so tired of foolishness in my feed. If you don’t get it, listen. I don’t need your explanation or your dismissal. I can do things just fine without the approval of white establishment.
I used to wonder how the US could possibly believe that Israel’s attempt at genocide was justified because of a few rockets.
Then Ferguson turned into a police state where cops are shooting into peoples homes, gassing any non-KKK or WBC group of people they see, arresting reporters and elected…
Client: I threw out that black pen, it was out of ink.
Me: What black pen?
Client: The one that was lying on your tablet.
Me: You threw out my $150 Wacom pen?
Client: I tried writing with it and it didn’t work. It must’ve been out of ink.
…I would MURDER
You should have heard the inhuman sound that came from my throat when I read this O_O
A part of me raged so hard just now.
And now we wait. Next episode: the flipping! #baking #
