After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”
The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.
guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

Handy guide to have.
Sketch dump. Sorry. I’ve been keeping up with Inktober—mostly, I seem to have missed a day somewhere, but luckily, I did an extra one with a brush—but I didn’t have time to scan them until now so here they all are in one large batch. I’m realizing how little time I have after work, keeping up with Inktober.
So, mostly creatures because I haven’t had a lot of time to look up references either. Playing around with a blue Prismacolor marker, which bled too much, so finished it off with the trusty Zebra brushpen. Experiemented with inking with a Chinese brush, but started off with a crappy one, the werewolf is the extra one substituting for a day I apparently missed, not quite finished either. Then onto lots of texture after a long night with a dragon in the Zebra brushpen. Yet another creature (forgive the poor anatomy) with a Pentel fine-liner, a water-soluable pen. More brushwork on the 11th of Inktober with a Secretary Bird. I still have a long ways to go with brushwork, though I also may need a better inking brush. And finally today’s entry, a sketch from the JPL Open House of the Mariner 10 model in blue lead and Zebra brushpen.
So far, Inktober has been crazy exhausting, but also an opportunity to try out various inking techniques.
