So my roommate and I joke that her cat POSES every time we pull out a camera, but it’s not even a joke anymore. This fucking cat makes a conscious effort to look EXTRA ADORABLE whenever he sees us take out our phones.
Just. Just look at this cat.
I caught him sleeping on my glasses, so I tried to take a picture of the kawaii little shit.
Flash wakes up cat. Cat sees phone.
IM NOT A MODEL
Ernest bends Mal’s ear for relationship advice. Mal wonders why he’s being asked because Ernest technically has more experience than he does, and Zip offers genuine advice that’s more from common sense than experience.
This is a thing that happens. You would think that Ernest would know better, since Mal just makes Lemongrab noises whenever he brings up June in casual conversation, but Ernest is Ernest. Mal and June have a very…strained relationship.
Done! The lovely June Hovick— a bit older here, perhaps just shy of twenty? Lounging with a lovely fire tiger of her own creation. Tried to riff off of the art on her bio… hopefully I did her justice!

This site has chest binders for 16 dollars and free shipping. I know people have limited money and I felt like this was worth sharing.
It’s like, 4 in the morning and I’m prolly gonna wake up later today, look at this, and wonder what the fuck I was on.
Anyway, happy birthday Teal! I felt I should contribute to the well-wishing and draw you something. Enjoy the thing and enjoy your day!
Malek for Kitty!
I don’t get asked to do teens to often. Hope I got that awkward man-child proportion down. LOL
(Oh, yeah. I did two single-day commissions today. UHN!)
I AM SCERAMNIG
And then, in 2010, Marvel Comics presented a Spider-Man (the ‘Ultimate’ version) who was 13 years old and brown. To see Spider-Man pulling his mask over a tiny brown chin – to see a boy with short curly hair sticking to the ceiling of his bedroom— well, something happened. Dagim has been Spider-Man for two Halloweens in a row. He takes a bath with his Spider-Man and a toy killer whale. He has Spider-Man toothpaste and a Spider-Man toothbrush. If Spider-Man offered medical coverage, I think he would want that, too.
I thought for a while that my son would never be interested in my comics. I was afraid they would just represent another club he couldn’t join: all those big-jawed white guys with their hair parted to the side. But thanks to Spider-Man, my son imagines himself jumping on giant robots and saving the city. I hear him doing that behind the door of his room. —
NY Times: A Superhero Who Looks Like My Son (via fyeahlilbit2point0)
I got to meet Miles at a convention last summer. Not some kid in a costume. But Miles.
There’s this kid at our booth. I’d guess around 11 years old. He had been by the booth solo a couple times already. This time he had an adult.
“This one dad. This is the new Spider-Man.”
“Uh, huh.” his dad was singularly unimpressed with Spidey.
“No dad see,” and he points to one where Miles has the mask off, “He’s half black and half Mexican.” the kid is just beaming.
Dad starts to smile. This is about when a lady walks up, she puts her arm around dad and the kid says hi to mom.
Here’s the thing. This kid’s dad is Hispanic and mom is black. Miles was literally showing him he could be Spider-Man.
This isn’t me wanting to grow up and be Storm. This isn’t me wanting to be Captain America. Those are characters that are like me, kind of. But I have tons of characters that are “just like me”. That’s my white girl privilege.
Miles, beyond being a super awesome Spider-Man is a super awesome role model. This is a character that says, you exist AND you can be a hero.
Miles is the reason I am so passionate about representation in comics. Because I saw that little boy’s face and the pride in having himself matter enough, his family matters enough, to be shown in comics.
The kid and I had a lovely chat about Miles and how awesome he was. His dad asked for info on the comics so he could try & find the back issues for his son. It is pretty much my best memory of that convention.
I started reading Miles because I was interested in a different take on Spidey. I kept reading because Miles is AWESOME. I will continue reading so that kid keeps being able to see himself in the pages of a comic.
