This woman is 61 years old, hasn’t gotten her workman’s compensation for a fall she had while working one of her two jobs. She is having trouble paying for groceries, gas/electric bills and for her medication. The fund…

update:

"Well my friends. Here’s an update on my situation. I went to work today and made $8.00 in tips. I drive round trip 36 miles to work from moonville near Piedmont south Carolina. It’s going on 5 months since my accident and still have not received not one workman’s Comp check. I really don’t know what I’m gonna do. I know there are people in the world much worse off than me but it has come to the point not only every dollar you donate helps but every penny. I can’t quit work because then workmans Comp won’t pay the doctor bills. Rotater cuff is still torn and there’s parrchale frozen shoulder because it took 3 months for approval for Therapy. Therapy hurts but helps. I’ve made a 30% improvement but probably never be the same. Sorry to bore y’all with all this but I want to thank the few people who have helped me on go fund me and I know God will bless each and everyone of you. So for now. Thank you and I will keep you updated. Xoxo"

I think that Shorinji Kempo is one of the martial arts that are very underrepresented in games (along with the women!). There is always the karate guy, the taekwondo guy, kickboxer guy etc. It would be really cool to see a Shorinji Kempo kenshi in fighting games!SO I JUST DOODLED THESE BUT I’M NOT VERY GOOD BECAUSE I LIKE TO PUT SHOULDER PLATES ON EVERYTHING AND IT DOESN’T EVEN MAKE SENSE WITH THE ATTIRE IT JUST LOOKS SILLY SORRY.

I’m tired. So tired of the oversexualization of women in art and the game industry. Hobbyists as well as experienced concept artists/illustrators seem to prefer to sexually objectify women in their art.

Is there really nothing else to a woman than her body?

I am truly disappointed that people never prefer to depict women as the strong, intellectual human beings they actually are.
I haven’t seen one good concept artist, or artist in general when it comes to women. Holy shit.

And I myself strive to become better and hopefully put women in a different light in the game industry.

I also fucking hate DeviantArt because it’s seething with oversexualization. I fucking hate it so much.

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

Let me tell to you a thing.

This is Lenore. I first saw her in a little cage at the Petco I frequent (I used to take my parents’ dog in for puppy play time), and she looked like the grouchiest, old, crotchety cat in the world, and I fell instantly in love. She was cranky, she was anti-social, hanging out at the back of her cage. Her fur was matted because she wouldn’t let the groomers near her.

She was perfect.

But I didn’t have a place for her. I wasn’t living in my own space yet, and where I was, I wasn’t allowed cats. So I pressed my face to the bars of her cage and I promised that if no one had adopted her by the time I’d bought a house, I would come back for her.

I visited her every week for over six months while I looked for a house. At one point, they had to just shave her entire rear-end because the mats or fur were so bad. They told me she clawed the heck outta the groomer that did it, screamed the entire time, and spent the next two days growling at anyone that came near the cage.

A couple of weeks later, I closed on my house. I went back and I got an employee, and I said: “That one. I need that cat.”

They got the paperwork and the lady who ran the rescue that was bringing the cats in told me that Lenore (at the time, Lila) was 8 years old, had been owned by an elderly lady who had died, and brought in to a different rescue, who’d had her for six months on top of the time I’d been seeing her at Petco.

This kitty had been living in a 3x3’ cube for over a YEAR because she was older and “less adoptable.”

I signed the paperwork, put her in a cat carrier, and drove her to my new home. I had pretty much nothing; a bed, an old couch, a couple of bookcases, and a tank of mice I called “Cat TV”. I let her out of the carrier and onto my bed, and I told her “I told you I would come back for you when I had a place. It’s not much, but it’s yours too now.”

Lenore spent the next three days straight purring non-stop. She followed me around the house purring. Sat next to me purring. Slept next to me purring. Leaning into every touch, purring, purring, always purring. She still purrs if you so much as think about petting her. She’s amazing, and I love her.

So, you know, if you’re thinking about adopting, and you see a beast that others consider “less adoptable,” think about Lenore.

FUCKING IMPORTANT

The STORY THOUGH.
