I just wanted to take the time out to say thank you to my friends at school and my lovely teachers for helping me out with my style today. You guys have know idea how much you’ve opened my eyes to what I should look out for in my work. I really think it’s going to be better thanks to you all. I’m glad you guys are enjoying the style that I want to pursue as well. It really gave me a confidence boost knowing I have you all behind me!
It’s wonderful that Lupita Nyong’o won an oscar. She’s a beautiful and talented woman and she deserves it.
But I’ll be more excited and impressed when African American women get recognized nominated for roles that aren’t slave/maid or dysfunctional crazy, but internally damaged bitch narratives.
Exactly what I was thinking as I’m looking at all this Oscar stuff. I’m not hating on her for winning but I just wish her role wasn’t the typical “slave” role. I think she is poised and beautiful but god it really kills me what she got noticed for was a damn slave role. I didn’t even see 12 Years slave. I’m sure it’s great but I have a thing against watching slave movies. I’ve seen enough of them to last me a lifetime and I am ready for blacks to be recognized in other roles. We are/were kings and queens yet everyone only wants to focus on the slave, civil rights, stereotypical views of us. I want to see heroes, spies, leaders, positive imagery of my people.
Ok I’m done ranting. I don’t want to make this a big thing…
lool and here I was a few days ago wondering when you’d draw some draguuuns again<3
Lool, I think about them from time to time. I just never announce what I do with them on the internet. They’re such a side thing that I never felt I should show it off. Lol however they do feed my need to draw creatures and stuff.
