Why is there a pop culture seesaw of glorifying and disrespecting curvy and thin women? We can’t help our body types and we certainly don’t need other people we don’t know singing songs, making movies, and writing articles about what they think we should look like.
Stop the scrutiny, and if you want to make songs praising your own body type, please do it without insulting the other. All you are doing is making a mockery of your own sex and gender.
I met Lili Taylor today at the coffee shop I work at. I was so nervous and confused about her being in a tiny city and a tiny shop that I started to shake a little and forgot to put ice in her iced espresso.
She still tipped me and she winked at me on her way out.
My sly way of making sure she was Lili Taylor was solely in the statement posed as a question towards her which was, “You were in High Fidelity, right?”
I ruined any of the small amount of “cool” credit I earned for myself almost immediately after because I geeked out about this two minute encounter for the rest of the day.
That was my first celebrity experience, hopefully I’ll be better at pretending to be a normal person next time.
Well, I tried to show all of you what I’ve been working on, but tumblr won’t let me share.
Hopefully tomorrow I can upload them and the last couple of daily drawings I did.

I heard about you through that zine collective (I can't think of the name rn) but I saw pictures of your residency a while back and the work was beautiful. Great job. I was wondering what you were working on now besides these rad sketches. I like to draw comics and things and have been busy lately but your work is inspiring me to get back to it.
Hi Gerald! That isn’t weird at all, I’m very flattered. Thank you very much. Currently I’m working on a couple of projects. Right now I’m making a couple of gift card designs for my job (which I will be posting soon). I’m also putting together a graphic novel about a girl that will hopefully be released in issues online within the next couple of months or so. The first issue is almost half way done and it will be called “The Cave”. It will be sci-fi/fantasy horror comic and each issue will be an adventure that will reveal something new about her character and backstory.
It’s definitely hard to make art when you have a day job. I try to wake up early and set aside at least an hour or two to work on my projects before I go to my job every day. I’d love to hear some of your ideas, and see what you will be working on.
