Here are some articles on the subject of same sex marriage becoming legalized in the U.S.



Free Cece! (Topic #4)

Cece McDonald is a young trans woman that was attacked while out for a night out with her friends. The group was approached by a group of young men and catcalling eventually lead to violence in which Cece accidentally stabbed a man while trying to defend herself.

I think Cece was wrongfully convicted and should be released immediately!!

No-Wave or Permanent Wave Feminism (Topic #3)

No wave feminism is the idealogy that all women, and people that identify as women, and beyond, should be considered equal. This is a radical idea apart from the idea that only attractive, white, able-bodied women should be represented in the feminist movement. This idea is important because it focuses on  building the concept of equality for all people regardless of percieved race, gender, or other aspects of their person that are considered "other."

Obama vs. Romney (Topic #2)

Our current president, Barack Obama will be running against republican primary Mitt Romney in this upcoming November presidential Election. I personally, run a little left so I would have to say that I want Obama to win again.

Pussy Riot (Topic #1)

I bpero
From left, Yekaterina Samutsevich, Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot at their sentencing on Aug. 17.
Pussy Riot is a feminist punk rock band based in Moscow. They were recently sentenced to two years in prison under the charges of "hooliganism" for performing in a church in Moscow and using "profane" lyrics to complain about the current Russian president, Putin.
i personally feel that the convicted of Pussy Riot is ridiculously absurd and something that I feel very strongly about.

It's kind of funny to be doing this again. I think sometimes I forget just how fun drawing can be. Let's see... I thought painting was my course of action but I think I still want to explore doing more "commercial" work. The circles are going to be a challenge for me, cuz I hate to color inside the lines (or circles, as the case may be.) hahah. But I believe I can persevere - Being a good artist takes dedication, it takes the ability to be able to resist distractions. I feel like I'm pretty much just  psyching myself up in this little note here, but I'd just like to share this with you.
