Not dead, just busy!
More Sherlock. With lots of textures (from http://www.mayang.com/textures/). I’m not super happy with how it turned out, but I thought I’d put it up anyways. (Fanart 13/100)
Just watched the first episode of season 3! Sherlock, John, and Mary. I’m rooting for a complicated and wonderful triad relationship. (Fanart 12/100)
Sarah, the Wiseman (plus Hat), Jareth, and Toby from Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. Whew! That took a while. (Fanart 7/100 to 10/100)
Doodled these ladies this morning. (Prismacolor on printer paper. Fancy!)
I’ve felt like shaving was a stupid beauty standard for a long time, but this past October I had an epiphany that really crystallized this opinion. No one cares about arm hair. Well, people rarely care about arm hair. I don’t realize notice other people’s arm hair. (Edit: After talking to an Indian friend, I have realized that my experience with arm hair is very different as a not-that-noticeably-hairy-armed white person. So lots of people worry about their arm hair. I have been lucky not to have felt the brunt of arm hair shame.) I don’t think arm hair is gross or ugly. So why in the world did I feel like the rest of my body hair was unsightly?
This led to a lot of googling for stories about women who chose to stop shaving, which led to this article and this article (and a bunch more I don’t remember), which reminded me of even more reasons that shaving was silly. So I stopped. And now I’m fighting twenty-four years of conditioning in order to accept that body hair is awesome.
This morning I was wondering if there was a body hair body positive adult coloring book. I couldn’t find one, so I thought about making one. And that’s the story of these hairy women. I’d like to draw more of them, with more varied body types, ethnicities, styles of undergarments, and whatnot.
