#introduction Hi y’all I’m Miss PJ Superior. Like many, I recently joined Mastodon in light of the coming updates to FB/IG that target furthered censorship explicitly towards femmes and queers especially artists, educators, and particularly sex workers, as if these groups ain’t already been gettin it especially those not thin and white. You can check out my work at pjsuperior.com 🌹 I call this photo “Self Portrait of a Survivor” #survivor #art
I’m stoked to receive feedback on my Coloring Guide to Tarot that confirms exactly my mission in offering these handmade coloring books! 🥰✨ This concise guide about the planetary numerology in the Tarot helps your readings flow with greater simplicity and understanding- and it’s fun to color! 🌈🪐 available at pjsuperior.Etsy.com 🔮 #tarot
I was struck with inspiration for a new queer resistance Zine for the new year last night!! 🌩 I wrote it down. Not enough for me, I then drew the rough sketches. And then I couldn’t resist some color tests! Hopefully I’ll have it out by Valentine’s Day. Til then, previews of the ideas and processes are available only to my Patreon supporters.
Art and money: the great taboo.
From the article: “Art is work. The fact that people do it out of love, or self-expression, or political commitment, doesn’t make it any less so. ... Wanting to get paid does not mean that you’re a capitalist. It doesn’t even mean that you assent to capitalism. It only means that you live in a capitalist society. ... You don’t have to be doing something for the money to want to get money for doing it. You just have to be alive.” 🎨 🎸 📸 🖊
The organic farmer whose harvest we were blessed to frolic around naked had one of my Maria tapestries hung in his bedroom window! He also had this amazing hanging heart vase I adore and my girl snapped these photos of me holding it in front of Maria. I am into the light distortion that happened.
Each #Astroportrait I create is unique. 🌌 For example, both of these people are Libras born into the year of the Snake. Zodiacs inspired from Celtic and Mayan traditions are also incorporated in the divination process from which emerges each custom vision initiated with only a birth date. 💫 #astrology
Even now the greatest of solid mountain slopes are yet shifting with the winds. 🏔
Even as I lay still, my blood flows and my breathe rises and falls. Peace is unattainable when strived for in stillness if this nature of stillness ain’t accepted. Just as courage is not defined by an absence of fear, peace is not an absence of action but a balance of being in action. ☮️ ☯️
Full Moon at home in Cancer ♋️ trusting intuition, listening to the heart with fluid dream interpretations, noting synchronicities for reassurance with a focus on rest and recovery. #astrology
In 2010 TN courts sentenced me for substance possession without evidence documented because the way they arrested me was through an emergency service call. They said I didn’t have a “real emergency“ and abused public emergency services thereby making me a “domestic terrorist” which invoked the Patriot Act upon me in order for officer testimony to take place of physical evidence. The man who blew out statewide emergency service grids with explosives is not a democratic terrorist but I am.
Too fat for you on Instagram
When pictures showing any of my tum folds at all where being auto removed last year and I was getting emails about my account on probation for deletion, and while my skinny friends got away with publicly posting full body nudes, I decided to draw myself concentrating on a most “offensive” part of my body, deemed too fat for your eyes. Funny how my beauty supposedly reached its acceptable peak when almost starving to death from chronic illness- fuck that!
shitposting is fun and all but have you tried
No seriously it's okay to like be human and have emotions and like talk about how you're feeling or whatever? like you can control your privacy level per post, you can, in some instances, post instance only posts. Lots of ways to control the level of access to your post so you can, in a controlled fashion let some walls down.
