We learnin'

I'm a nonprofit worker, zinester, and community arts advocate. I make illustrations, comics/cartoons, and other interdisciplinary art and I hope this place is the online beacon of hope to save us from the nightmare of IG

is the hashtag y’all can navigate to read my posts. Currently, the drawings I posted on IG are the unedited version. My plan with this project is to finish drawing everything, go back and edit it, and work on getting it published. This is my first long-format comic project based on characters I started working with about four years ago. I hope y’all will join me on this storytelling journey :)

internet anxiety 

does anyone else feel normal or weird after the artalley schism? I really enjoyed the beginning of being on here but after trying out .art for a while it doesn’t feel the same :(

Art Alley's code of conduct has just been rewritten, borrowing a lot from Pillowfort's terms of use. There are no effective changes, but it is more detailed.

It can be viewed here: artalley.social/about/more

Line by line difference to the previous version can be viewed here for 7 days: diffchecker.com/XNI80jB4

There should be nothing objectionable in this rewrite but feedback is welcome.

ADMIN POST

I'm sorry to say we are no longer federating with artalley.social due to their stance on porn of underage characters. They also denied that a user posted Nazi symbolism that one of our users reported but has since been deleted.

I'm sorry if you had peers or friends there, but in my mind this is for the safety of the whole userbase.

Happy New Year!

It was a tough year for everybody so I wish that the next year will be better for everyone.

Chat, leftist griping. 

True ending: capitalism is bad for art. I need capitalism to end.

just my usual reminder: don’t forget to leave reviews on etsy. you don’t even have to write out a review, at least give a star rating ESPECIALLY if you are happy with your purchase!!

body image/mental health/nudity/personal identity 

This year, I started a secret IG to be my personal safe space, but since coming here - this! this space feels safe. Here are a few procreate doodles from the secret IG that express personal thoughts I regularly live with on body image, anxiety, and identity. Ever since I started a comic project that isn’t about me, I haven’t felt like I had a place to share my more personal work until now :’)

cat eye contact 

good morning greeting from a warm cat :) our little babe, Mina, is all about this blanket
