For a friend! This is what the inside of my head sounds like before a convention or any event where I am trading… Stress city~
Queens of the Stone Age - I Appear Missing (by QOTSAmusic)
I should really be working on my comic, but this song makes me want to draw so many other things…
Pretty Sure that i NEED this headband!
hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!!
As we enter the mad season for conventions, and i face down the fact that i am over weight, but love cosplay, I find this relevant. Big thanks to the artist as well as the friend that re-blogged this. It feels good to see that there are other people out there that feel the same.

Please pass it on.
