The Etiquette of Sharing

The Etiquette of Sharing

I made a thing about Facebook and sharing people’s work.

Inspired by Melissa McEwan’s recent experience having her work reposted without credit. Don’t do that.

November 2015: Windstorm

Just over a week ago, heavy winds tore through Spokane, downing trees and power lines and bringing much of the city to a screeching halt. The following day, I went for a walk around our neighborhood to photograph some of the damage.

October 2015: Ink in Water

My Patreon campaign reached the $20/post milestone, which means that once a month, I’ll be taking and sharing six (or more) photos here on the blog. This month, I have some photos from an increasingly common ritual in my life.

Have some fucking empathy, you asshat

Empathy

Have some fucking empathy, you asshatI get tired of dealing with unempathetic jerks on the internet, so I make things like this.

Written in my sketchbook with my Parker Metropolitan fountain pen, then painted in Photoshop.

Want to own this image in a form you can touch with your hands and/or face? You can buy it as a print, a throw pillow, a skin for your laptop/phone/iPad, a tote bag, and more at my Society6 store. Plus, a portion of your purchase will actually support me!

Putting Lipstick on Pigs

Putting Lipstick on Pigs

Here’s what you need to know about me: I love putting lipstick on pigs.

It was about four years ago when I was first introduced to Tara Gilesbie’s My Immortal. If you’ve never heard of it, allow me to clue you in. My Immortal is widely considered the worst piece of fanfiction ever written. Ostensibly set in the Harry Potter universe, it follows Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way, an anti-establishment vampire witch, as she adventures at Hogwarts and uncovers dark forces at work.  At least, that’s what the summary would sound like if the fanfiction were actually any good. A more honest synopsis is “she wears such gothic clothes and looks so hot and goes to a million My Chemical Romance concerts and has to seduce Voldemort and everyone loves her”.

It’s so bad. I thought I was ready for its level of badness when I began reading it, but I was wrong. I don’t think anyone can be prepared for its level of badness. My Immortal is an affront to decency. It’s abhorrent.

Which is why, as soon as I’d finished reading it, I wanted nothing more than to put it on my Kindle.

Moab in HDR

Last month, R and I took a vacation to Moab. I had just started exploring HDR photography, so I was eager to try it out on some of Utah’s dramatic landscapes.

Here are a few of the shots I snagged:

Sketches – May 5-11, 2014

Last week, some sort of inspiration struck me, and I ended up doing a lot of drawing. Here are some of the things I sketched last week:

(Incidentally, now that I’m drawing more, I wish I had a scanner–except I have a hard time justifying devoting any extra space in my tiny apartment to one. Oh, dilemmas.)

Fall Foliage

Last week, watching the leaves turn around me, I went out for a walk with my camera to try to capture the gorgeous sights of Walla Walla in the fall. Then I saw an owl.

It was pretty awesome.

Here are my favorites of those photos.
