Time for an updated pin. Hey all! I make things that I think should exist.
I have an Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PixelOccult
I made a cyberpunk tarot deck: http://www.neonmoontarot.com
And a post apocalyptic western gothic tarot deck: http://www.sinkingwastelandtarot.com
And a webcomic: https://medium.com/@pixeloccult

From a long time IRC and forum lurker, the moderation here feels at least as effective as those.
Moderation on the larger social media is broken by design. Watching tech regress into solved problems is irritating and being subjected to the environments those problems create is terrible.
Anyway, I might be more active here as a result but if I'm not, know it's just because I'm tending to my mental health and working on drawing hopefully rad stuff. Much love. <3

Twitter has finally joined Facebook on the list of apps not allowed on my phone. Since I make my living off the internet I can't separate myself entirely from popular social media sources but I can visit them on my terms and not absorb their virulence ambiently at all hours anymore, and if I can in a small way keep the wrong social media from being rewarded for being horrid then all the better.
Mastodon remains because y'all are good and its moderation is mostly effective.
Today's creature is Bækhest from the upcoming Adorabyssal Oracle
About: The Bækhest or brook horse is a Scandinavian creature similar to a Kelpie. It is described as an unaturally glamorous white horse that appears near rivers in foggy weather. It was said that anyone who climbed on the horse would then be stuck on its back as it jumped back into the river, taking them with it.

I made a Major Arcana themed playlist on Spotify and I guess you can listen to it if you like that kind of thing: https://open.spotify.com/user/jamesgrimlee/playlist/1mY4WoTtxrODNJWdEeTFFH?si=4XE4PiBLQrmpTzKrN_UQog
Switching things up a bit as I approach the release of the Adorabyssal Oracle Deck.
Today's creature is Namazu from the Adorabyssal Oracle!
About: Namazu is a giant catfish from Japanese mythology. It is said to live in the mud under Japan and is restrained by the god Kashima with a stone. When Kashima gets distracted and is unable to control Namazu, Namazu proceeds to thrash about and cause violent earthquakes.
Today's tarot draw is The Inverted Emperor from www.neonmoontarot.com
Themes for this card include: Domination, rigidity.
"An inverted emperor can signify troubles with authority. There may be an abusive and controlling authority in your life that requires you to stand up to authority or to try to wrest control of the situation. It is also possible you'll need to avoid this over-bearing authority entirely and focus yourself elsewhere."
Today's tarot draw is Agent of Vials from www.neonmoontarot.com
Themes for this card include: Motivation, imagination, inspiration.
"You should move forward with your dreams, but be sure to keep the constraints of realizing them firmly in mind. Be ready to embark on the passion or journey you've always wanted to, but be sure to balance out your ideas and thoughts with actual, realistic actions."
Giant Days is so good y'all
Today's tarot draw is Fortune from www.neonmoontarot.com
Themes for this card include: Destiny, luck, gratitude.
"This is a card of cycles and change. Good and bad times both come and go, and everything changes. Don't be discouraged if you are blocked, as everyone experiences problems. The important thing is to eventually move past them. You may be experiencing dramatic change but do not be alarmed. Concentrate on yourself as the anchored center point around which events in your life churn."
Today's tarot draw is The Priestess from www.neonmoontarot.com
Themes for this card include: Intuition, the subconscious, mystery.
"The High Priestess represents a link to the subconscious. She is wise, understanding, and calm. This card encourages you to pay attention to your inner voice and intuition."
