So I guess this thing I made is officially out in the world now! Or will be in a little while. Anyways - I had the great pleasure of getting to do a variant cover for Bravest Warriors #24 which according to this will be out in September :) Also the incomparable jellydraws did one of the other variants!!

I love this cover.

Hey, everybody! My book Honeybee is currently available for purchase through CreateSpace, Amazon, and directly from me! It’s 108 pages of aggressively personal poetry: a year of breaking up and making up and breaking up again, a year of misplaced blame and learning slow acceptance, a year of letting go.

I hope you enjoy it! As always, thanks for reading.

I suggest everyone buy this book. I have been following this wonderful girls tumblr for a while and reading her personal thoughts and poems for a very long time now and I am definitely adding this to my amazon wishlist.

^ The poetry book from the writer of that last ask, and someone I’ve known and liked on tumblr for years. Check it out, won’t you?

As someone who deals with unspecified aspects of anxiety/depression stuff, how the hell do you cope with sharing your work online? People are so cruel and even when they are not cruel, the possibility is just hanging there. And it's so easy to "not give a fuck" until you get hate mail and then it's too easy to cry and not get out of bed. I just put out my first little self published poetry book and no one has said anything negative AT ALL but I'm still a ball of awful nerves.

Firstly: CONGRATULATIONS!

Secondly: It’s hard.

I’ve had a lot of negative feedback. Some of it was justified, a lot of it was not. I used to get so up in my head about every single negative comment I got, until I got so many comments (both positive and negative) that I had to be able to move past it or I couldn’t live my life.

It’s really scary, being open to criticism. The thing you have to learn - and it only comes with time and experience - is realizing the difference between a legitimate concern and people being hateful idiots. I’ve done things before that I’ve seen people get SO angry about and thought “well that’s ridiculous,” and I’ve also done things and seen people get hurt by my words and though “oh fuck, why did I ever, ever write that?” I used to be bad for that. Not knowing the difference. I’m learning. Always learning.

You have to get past that fear of rejection. I’ve had a lot of nights curled up in a ball in my room ready to pull the plug on comics, had to have my friends talk me down, had to shut off the internet for a day and go outside to get a reality check, because some teenager in Iowa sent me a 5-page email about all the ways I should kill myself because she disagreed with the way I defined bisexuality.

(Which, let’s be real, those comics are pretty cringeworthy to look back on, but they don’t deserve death threats.)

AN Y WAY, I’m so tired and rambling, but the thing is you just have to steel yourself and be brave. You can’t avoid criticism. Someone will always hate what you do. You live for the people who get something from it. If you’re lucky, you find people who love it.

can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda

and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind

and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move

Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…

Dowling Duncan and redesigning the American Dollar:

Why the size?
We have kept the width the same as the existing dollars. However we have changed the size of the note so that the one dollar is shorter and the 100 dollar is the longest. When stacked on top of each other it is easy to see how much money you have. It also makes it easier for the visually impaired to distinguish between notes.

Why a vertical format?
When we researched how notes are used we realized people tend to handle and deal with money vertically rather than horizontally. You tend to hold a wallet or purse vertically when searching for notes. The majority of people hand over notes vertically when making purchases. All machines accept notes vertically. Therefore a vertical note makes more sense.

Why different colors?
It’s one of the strongest ways graphically to distinguish one note from another.

Why these designs?
We wanted a concept behind the imagery so that the image directly relates to the value of each note. We also wanted the notes to be educational, not only for those living in America but visitors as well. Each note uses a black and white image depicting a particular aspect of American history and culture. They are then overprinted with informational graphics or a pattern relating to that particular image.

$1 – The first African American president
$5 – The five biggest native American tribes
$10 – The bill of rights, the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution
$20 – 20th Century America
$50 – The 50 States of America
$100 – The first 100 days of President Franklin Roosevelt. During this time he led the congress to pass more important legislations than most presidents pass in their entire term. This helped fight the economic crises at the time of the great depression. Ever since, every new president has been judged on how well they have done during the first 100 days of their term.

I get so annoyed with Americans who make fun of Canadian currency because it’s “Monopoly Money.” What? Our currency is multicoloured, see-through, holographic and almost indestructible! I guess that’s not as cool as being impossible to tell apart, wrinkly, bland and super easy to rip?

These designs are slick as hell, though.
