Hi! I'm a self-employed illustrator
I enjoy discussing/learning about/posting:
Star Trek - I love all the series so far (DS9 is my fave)
Non-Eurocentricity and genuine representation of it in the arts.
Also, Language - which I suck at. But its so interesting!
Current obsessive art / worldbuilding / poetry project: https://www.instagram.com/oh_hai_ku/
And If you want to support me:
132% funded now, with 5 hours to go! I noticed my last post didn't seem to link correctly, so in lieu of a more imaginative promotional iamge, here's an old school Raichu and Pikachu sitting atop my worldbuilding project.

'nother little resource for learning about indigenous peoples of north america.
most maps that show where indigenous groups lived pre-contact are painfully incomplete, if not inaccurate, but this one is pretty damn good! i've seen few maps which show even one of my tribes, much less both!
Kickstarter is 100% funded! So (unless I make enough to hit my first stretch goal) any extra backing will go towards helping me get a new laptop, which I've needed for like, a year.
Here's today's illustrated haiku! It's one that I've wanted to draw for ages now, since early on when I started the project.

If your heart can stand it:
when a white person says that they're "color blind" in response to discussion about racism, they think that they're saying "i am a tolerant person."
however, what they're actually saying is "i can't see racism, so i won't acknowledge it", which is a really messed up way to look at the world
closing our eyes and putting our heads in the sand doesn't make something go away. racism is here to stay until it is acknowledged, explicitly called out by name, and strongly addressed in every community.
Star Trek Discovery Show more
Either way, I think they're doing an incredible job of telling a story arc with episodes that stand out on their own, allowing a little more breathing room for characters etc, and even appeasing to people who are obsessed with continuity.
I like a degree of continuity, but I mean, with Star Trek you can't get too caught up in it. There's an episode in the original series where the Enterprise time travels, just because they could?!
Star Trek Discovery Show more
I'm coming away from these episodes with very little to say other than "that was great, how does anyone not like this"
The flack it got in the first season reminded me that creators are under a lot of pressure to explain stuff so instantly nowadays. I mean, maybe that's always been the case. But I think since there's a lot more independent creators able to critique stuff, as well as some transparency about how much some TV writers wing it, there's a lot more scrutiny.
Discovery S02E05 (“Saints of Imperfection”) and Section 31 Show more
Got some helpful clarification about why Section 31 seems far more officially sanctioned than I recall. According to this TrekCore post, it started out that way in Enterprise—only later, by the time we get to DS9, is it rogue and off the books. Gonna have to re-watch some of those ENT episodes to refresh my memory. http://trekcore.com/blog/2019/02/star-trek-discovery-review-saints-of-imperfection/
