For those of you who follow me on my other Instagram, this is not any surprise, but since the middle of December, I've been taking part in Anna Radchenko's Creative Breakthrough Marathon 2018. (Basically, it's an exercise of testing the boundaries of one's artistic com...

As some of you might know, my alter ego (aka the overtly sentimental one) has been writing for Thought Catalog recently. Sometimes things get accepted, sometimes they get rejected. This is one of the rejected ones.

FYI - I am not gonna make it a habit of posting the slo...

I did not come up with this post idea.

The first one of these I read was Jocelyn Valencia's* countdown of the things she failed at in 2017 (shared by the ever-excellent Isaac Kirkman**) and then, when I couldn't find that to link directly in this post, it was this post...

Inktober came and went and I wish I did more challenges. 

To be fair... I tried two.

For those of you who don't know, Inktober is a challenge started by artist Jake Parker. The goal is pretty straightforward - make a drawing in ink for every day of October, and post it o...

Bring the Velcro.

Feed the Rageasaurus and it won't bite

For the love of all that's holy, if you're wearing lipstick, make sure it won't smear!

You will almost certainly miscalculate your stock/pricing

Witchcraft - shop here

It's almost that time of the year again.

The time when you ask your resident artist what they want for their winter holiday of choice, and they shuffle their feet awkwardly before saying:
