SPECIFICALLY SEEKING POC, TRANS, NON-BINARY, QUEER, AND OTHERWISE MARGINALIZED ARTISTS.
Oscar Moreau is a group made up of marginalized people working together to create media starring marginalized people. Our current project, Rep&Red, needs an artist that can work well with others, but also take initiative and go with their own inspiration, as well. Even if you personally do not plan on auditioning, please, signal boost for your followers that might be interested.
life hack: remember to compliment people on qualities other than their looks. remind them of their kindness, thoughtfulness, and intelligence. tell them about how powerful and capable they are.

Hey guys I know some of you are effin fantastic writers, and I know some of you effin fantastic writers are working on original projects, and I’d just like to point out that my publisher has multiple submission calls out right now (click the “open calls” tab) — looking for stories with queer characters in a wide variety of genres, and specifically looking to get representation for trans*, nonbinary, and ace characters. And a lot of these calls are open long enough that you’d have time to start from scratch and work up something cool by the deadline.
JUST PUTTING THAT OUT THERE
Signal boosting for people who might write in the genres they’re looking for!
I found a really old hand-inked piece from 2009 in my sketchbooks that I had wanted to ink all the hatching on but had always been too scared to do beyond the pencil hatching I’d tried first, and dammit I still love it.

This is the secret to getting good at art.
(I wanted to include my Graphire 3x5 tablet but can’t find it today, and was running out of floor space for my current intuos. And some poster-sized drawings that are buried in the basement. Also, my Art folder on my computer is 30GB)

It’s sooooooooo good.
Did you know that Sisko is from New Orleans? And his father still lives there, running his restaurant? *v*
If I am ignoring you, I apologize. I become distracted and will focus on one thing a while. Sometimes I’m just emotionally overwhelmed and I have to lay down for a while. I’m not ignoring you because it’s you it’s because life is distracting and hard and so sometimes I just need to stop talking to people and sometimes I do that suddenly.
