Also, I have no idea what I was trying with the pose. XD

Trying focus on a more simple and toonish style for faces. Makes it easier to work with the eyes. xD

I DID IT.

The May portrait is complete! The birth flowers of May are lily-of-the-valley and hawthorn, symbolising sweetness, purity and hope. #MastoArt #art #portrait #artnouveau #flower

Just got finished watching season 1 of The Expanse after catching episodes from the final season with friends. Really enjoying it so far.

Politics 

Republicans: Banning guns won't work!
Also Republicans: We want to ban abortion!

Republicans will talk all day long about a mass shooting, but never do anything about it.

While I'd argue both are pretty bad, at least politicians are obligated to represent the people who voted for them - at least in theory. Billionaires are not held up to any such standard.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

#Fediverse

Forgive any duplicate Tweets or Toots when I fix an error. My posts are bidirectionally mirrored between Twitter and Mastodon.

I'm an adult and in this chaotic, depressing world we live in, cartoons will always makes me happy. Past, present and future.
