My name is My and I make comix. This is where I track my progress.
I'm a 25 y/o, white, queer cis woman, I'm a huge Discworld fan, in the second year of Serieskolan in Malmo and, although I care very much about politics, I try to keep them off my blog as much as possible. If you'd like me to tag anything, just give me a shout!

stardust-rain:

white people’s reactions to that post criticising Lucy makes me so fucking angry. More than that, it makes me trust them a little bit less.

fuck that whole “yes it’s problematic but I’m still excited!” because it is so much bullshit. Yeah, who cares about POC getting slaughtered and the violent linguistic imperialism BECAUSE ~STRONG WHITE FEMALE CHARACTER~. Apparently, POC’s deaths are less rage-inducing and less meaningful to white allies if a white woman is killing them instead of a white man.

To us, it’s still same white violence we see impeached everyday.

A white woman literally shoots a man in the head for not speaking English. Never mind the danger and oppression non-native English speakers face in the West, this took place in his home country. White expats are given so much fucking priority in Taiwan and China, with the way they’re catered to and coddled.

The kind of neo-imperialistic violence that this film is couching as ~female empowerment~ is really, really fucking harmful. White people have privilege in non-Western countries as well (the shit I’ve seen expats and exchange students get away with in China is astounding), to the extent that we aren’t even safe from harm in our own countries; this film not only ignores it, it glorifies it.

don’t you ever fucking forget that, because we can’t.

Part of having privilege means being able to watch and enjoy media that is harmful to marginalised minorities and still be critical of it, but when this dehumanisation is shoved in our faces, white people need to remember that this is so, so personal.

Okay so my hand strain or whatever it is is very much happening. I can’t use my right hand for anything good - no art for possibly quite some time! I’m very sorry!

This is a thing I’ve been working on and a test for a style. But I am so shy! Too shy to work on the things I love and care about. Will I ever learn to trust the things I’m actually into to have value? Nothing right now feels easy.

That&#8217;s very encouraging!!! It is definitely YA since most of the characters will probably be in their teens, but I&#8217;m not sure about publication rights since this is for a specific anthology. I&#8217;ll keep it in mind!

I’m making a 12-page short fantasy comic starring queer ladies and trans characters, no magic, no prophecies, probably no other species unless there is a demand for it, plot already sort of decided. Any of my wonderful followers, or other people, got anything specific they want to see from such a story?

Cocoa break WIP

I be logged this before, but was too busy announcing what I thought of Elba as Vimes to mention the more obvious point: this is awesome. even as a line drawing the atmosphere is so clear. I love Vimes’ expression of tired contentment. It’s lovely to catch the Watch in a rare moment of peace.

Oh gosh *U_U* I need to color and fix this ASAP to make it worthy of this amazing compliment

1. Zodiac Sign: Predictably, a Leo.

2. What’s better: a movie adapted into a TV series or a TV series turned movie?
 Definitely the former. I’m on a TV buzz the last while and I like the medium for its ability to tackle difficult subjects with nuance while still divided into easily digestible chunks. Plus, film is not doing great at the moment.

3. How much do you love yourself?
 A lot. I’m self critical and my anxiety issues are generally focused inward as much as not, which can make it difficult, but I look after and love myself regardless because I’ve come too far and lived through too much not to.

4. What fictional character best fits your personality?
 Adora Belle Dearheart from Discworld (cynical, trust issues, slightly man-hating, well dressed, kinky, dominating, wears heels and is clever), Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice (starts out proud, rude, spoilt, clueless, shy and self absorbed, works hard with the aid of his true love to learn social skills, humility and openness and succeeds at least partially) and Jane Eyre from Jane Eyre (incredibly romantic but moral, hard working and ambitious, combines an awareness of her own insignificance bordering on self hate with a resolve as tough as steel, painfully perceptive of the flaws of her loved ones)

5. If you have watched Sailor Moon who’s your favorite character? Probably Usagi to be honest, because she has the most character development and she’s very relatable. I like her relationship with Mamoru, especially in the manga. They’re a sweet couple.

6. Is it “couldn’t care less” or “could care less”? It’s “couldn’t”. If you “could”, you do care at least a little bit.

7. What was one thing you regret doing? I don’t have one big thing I regret, I don’t think. I only regret being careless and ignorant towards other people.

8. On a scale of 1-10, how cool do you think you are?
 I have an embarrassingly high and badly hidden opinion of myself in that regard and being aware of it has done nothing to stop it. U_U

9. Coke or Pepsi?
 Can’t stand sodas! Other than Red Bull which deserves some sort of shrine.

10. Paper or plastic?
 Paper? You can draw on it and it’s better for the environment.

11. Random Fact? The other day, I forgot what a name is. I was wondering why there was no way to get the attention of one specific individual short of describing them out loud.

Diary comixStarted making these for guest blogging at nesten som en tegneserie, where I also appear as a character quite often. Now I make them quite often, mostly because my memory is bad. I can&#8217;t tell if they&#8217;re any good to anyone who doesn&#8217;t know (and like) me, but they&#8217;re comforting to make.
