We're working hard to pay for Sarah's computer, & all sales go directly to support two disabled artists & our art! To go with this exclusive masto-first reveal, the first seven friends to order will receive an exclusive free gift–a second, never-ever-for-sale companion A3 poster print!
#introductions Hi, I'm James–UK #illustrator #mentalhealth struggler #zine fan+ #crab enthusiast. I like noodle soup, I have a broad+extremely trivial knowledge base. @Damage is my primary partner+carer!
Most of my life has been thrown off the standard course by being bedbound for years after I was diagnosed w/severe #CFSME @ 14. I'm better but in the midst of a long #relapse after getting a degree.
Please support my art+writing here! https://www.ko-fi.com/jallandale

Goodnight friends! After a succession of entirely cloudless days we had a break in the weather today, a familiar mottled grey ceiling that brought a brief drama of urgent clattering rain. After just a few hours the sky was nearly clear again, all the clouds crumbled & torn apart.
There's a hard-to-describe particular joy in rushing out of the house, shoes half on, to rescue washing fom the line.
May we align ourselves with justice & humility today, & work for change in ourselves & the world!
Reasons to love the #circus:
Visual proof that we're all connected. The World Circus Federation sent a set of #juggling clubs to youth circuses around the world to capture each group using them.
More than 98,000 km traveled, 20 different schools. All of them using the same set of props for a moment, and making something bigger than themselves in the process.
World Circus Day
This was a good ride, but I didn't pack enough food and my legs turned to jelly halfway round
9 days till the shutdown of witches.town
needless to say, if you haven't exported your data from there and moved to another instance already, please do so
Don't forget to boost interesting stuff.
The system relies solely on organic discovery.
We on small instances depend on boosts quite a lot!
Still working on doing more backgroundy stuff! I'm starting to think of these as 'scenes from the Wasteland', hah - an RP setting me and a friend are using based on an old story of mine that never got off the ground. Done in my new cotton rag paper sketchbook!
A few pieces from my sketch journal WiPs and misc pieces that have not saw the light of day
Goodnight friends! Another blazing day, more cloudless skies–though more moderate, seasonal temperatures. Just as the cherry boossoms lose their delicate candyfloss pink, apple trees are coming into white spring splendor.
My strength seems to be returning a little, but it's hard to spend much of it fulfilling my plans...I just want to walk as much as I can, & savour the sun.
May we recognise the efforts we've made & the struggles we've overcome today, & let them give us courage for the future!
I took exception to Starbucks' "third place" strategy & Apple stores rebranding as "town halls." Privatization is still part of the problem regarding corporations failing to make up for public places.
Regarding our recent outage. You can find an official statement below. The last documented time Cloudflare terminated services was when they terminated the account of a white supremacist website last year. We are waiting on answers.
