*TRIGGER WARNING: MENTION OF RAPE/SEXUAL ASSAULT*

MY PRINTS HAVE COME

I absolutely LOVE this book set! I just got it back today, and it’s just as beautiful as when I turned it in. :3

This is a set of 10 8-page books printed with black ink on linoleum called Kore, an entirely visual story based on an essay I wrote when I was in my Women and Gender in Antiquity class last semester. It’s called Persephone and the Pomegranate: The Use of Rape as a Forceful Transition from Maidenhood to Wifehood. It’s basically the myth of Persephone but with an historically accurate Grecian lens (focused specifically on the pov of Persephone rather than her mother). The paper is 18’x12’ and a mix of newsprint and bristol vellum. The box is actually a tampon box (lol) and papered with red paper I had left over from my first illustration class at the UA. The pomegranate from the front cover is stamped on the front of the box.

Message me if you’re curious about the story! :D

Sorry for not posting anything; I didn’t do anything over spring break. :/ BUT I’ll be getting my prints in a couple hours, so I’ll be uploading pix as son as I get them!

gonna make little books to leave around campus. :D

Figures my fan art gets the most notes. xD

So I haven’t finished this sketch yet, but I figured I’d post it anyway. :) It’s fan art of Namesake by secondlina and savvyliterate! Enjoy!

So I already finished that bottom one, but here are the official sketches scanned! I’m excited to finish this, since it’s due next week. :O

These are the collages I made for M on Valentine’s Day! :D Finally got them scanned last night at the SDS meeting! xD

My first sketch and second sketch for my book stamp are finished! Currently working on the final sketch for transferring. :D

Do NOT charge UA students a 2.5% "convenience fee" for paying their tuition on time with a credit card.

me-men-to—mo-ri:

Many in-state and out-of-state U of A students cannot afford the price of tuition up front. This will add an additional $259.75 fee (for in-state undergrad) and an additional $676.80 fee (for out-of-state undergrad) students per year for simply paying their bill via debit or credit card. Contracting with Nelnet instead of using the current Bursar payment method will discriminate against many U of A students who already cannot afford the cost of their education. Tuition at the U of A has already increased over 40% the past 5 years, our students don’t need another fee. As a student body, we ask you to either decrease tuition or get rid of the 2.5% “convenience” fee. We ask you to commit to making quality education affordable for everyone.

Signal boost the hell out of this! We need more signatures and more recognition!! As a UA student, the price of tuition already exceeds what I can possibly pay- this is like the icing on the cake, and it’s NOT right.

Veto SB 1062: Arizona's bill legalizing discrimination

me-men-to—mo-ri:

Governor Brewer said she want to make Arizona the best state, a place where businesses thrive, families can build a life together, and every individual enjoys the freedom that makes our country great. On her desk sits a bill that would threaten Arizona’s economy, hurt our families, and erode our fundamental rights. We call on Gov. Brewers leadership to show the rest of the country and world Arizona is open for business to all people and remains a place where, no matter your politics, beliefs, gender, race, or sexual orientation, it is a place you can call home. We ask Gov. Brewer to pick up your pen and veto SB 1062, a bill that would legalize discrimination and take us back, not forward to the prosperous future we all want for our great state. 

I never imagined this would be a petition I would have to start, especially in the year 2014 when so much progress has been made. Arizona has a woman governor, allowed to follow her dreams of public service. Nobody was able to determine her path because they have a religious belief on the role of women. Her story and countless others are in jeopardy. I knew we had to act and started this petition as a way to bring the voices against this bill together.

If Governor Brewer vetoes the bill we can quickly put this behind us. Families and friends can continue to go into businesses without worrying of being turned away. Tourists can countinue to visit our great state without fear of discrimination.  We can bring more companies like Google to Arizona to provide jobs. 

And if the bill is signed, Arizona’s future will be bleak. Imagine having to think if you or a family member will offend the religious beliefs of the server or owner of a restaurant you love, having to research every business to be sure you will welcomed. Think of state where you may come into work one day and be fired because you’re a single parent or divorced. How many businesses will be forced to leave or never come in the first place because Arizona has become the focus of a nationwide boycott. This will be Arizona if SB 1062 becomes law.

Arizona should be place where we embrace our differences and show respect to all people, even those with whom may not agree. We cannot become a state that allows people to use their beliefs as an excuse to take away the rights of others, making a story like our own Governor’s not possible. Please join us in asking Governor Brewer to veto SB 1062. Sign the petition and share as widely as possible. Thank you for your support.

PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST! THERE ARE MORE LGBTQ-FRIENDLY BUSINESSES THAN DISCRIMINATORY HERE IN AZ, SO INSTEAD OF BOYCOTTING PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND SUPPORT LGBTQ-FRIENDLY AZ BUSINESSES!!
