Pinned toot

I finally have a better idea what to put on an .

I'm very avidly into , enjoy and generally being . I love and . Also big into of all of the above.

I generally enjoy the aesthetics of casinos/gambling and especially jesters.

I'm still exploring who I am, but I'm and and that is leading me into realizing that my options should be more open.

Nothing is more important to me than my friends.

Inktober wrap up:

Turns out single word prompts are very bad for graphic design. Several days I felt like I just had no idea what to do with a one word prompt. I might have been able to get away with one word prompts if I had chosen a subset of graphic design for each one, i.e. all of them are brandings, but even then there's generally more information like what the company does.

Also feel like I should have had more fun with it instead of feeling obligated to do it.

Communities tend to be a bit fragile, since it is very easy for one individual to undermine the established code of conduct. As such, each individual is responsible for maintaining that the community adheres to the tenants by which they want things to blossom. It also means remaining vigilant for those trying to usurp what has been established and cause things to drift.

Hey, I'm Ricky. I'm a lurker, and occasional artist and writer. My sona is a blue tegu, though.. a bit more purple, I'd say.

Oh, and I hate capitalism. And I heard that alt-right shit gets outright banned in most corners around here, which is awesome.

I recently joined the Fedi since Twitter is just.. urgh, and I crave actual interaction as well as less fear *of* interaction. Plus, the second paragraph there. It's bad on Twitter. :/

So uh.. hi?

I am here to announce a thought: Why do we not have slumber parties? WHY DO WE NOT HAVE SLUMBER PARTIES?!

I mean, we have drunk friends sleeping it off after parties and the chaos that is hashtag con life but I haven't ever even thought of organizing a slumber party.

Saw a post earlier that reminded me that staying silent about political issues is maintaining the status quo.

Reminds me why I'm so frustrated when sites I frequent seem to push for silencing it as a discussion topic.


Please stop treating dom/sub relationships as superiority/power grabs. Being a dom does not make you inherently better than being a sub.

Character musings, community turmoil 

Here is a sort of interesting phenomena. Most books on magic/the occult are geared at a very basic level of engagement. It's sort of like a perpetual middle/high school level of engagement, and most witchcraft stuff is not terribly concerned with asserting a true naturalization of the craft.

Would anyone be interested in a teaching/discussion group that engages these topics at a more college level context?

I was thinking of modeling a program on the three hermetic arts of astrology (through close reading of history as divination and a study of astronomy), alchemy (through psychoanalysis, Jung, Lacan and Hillman being major influences) and theurgy (through looking at qubbalah from the perspective of process philosophy, critical theory, and linguistics)

There would also be a significant amount of discussion for prerequisites, such as philosophy, theology, comparative religion, history, etc to help those with more autodidact backgrounds fill out the gaps in their knowledge.

This would also be in an explicitly LGBTQ+ affirming context, with a signifigent level of attention paid to methods of queering occult discourse.

If I did this in the context of say, a Discord Server or a Matrix Group, Would you be interested? Boosts appreciated :)

Day 26, "Dark"

This one came to me pretty clearly so I absolutely had to make sure I got it done before the end of the day. Didn't come out quite as I intended, but I don't think it looks that bad.

Day 21, "Treasure"

Simple iconography today, now just in the mindset of getting it done.

Day 20, "Tread"

Just wanted to do something quick to show that I haven't given up on this challenge even if I've been struggling!

Day 15, "Legend"

She will be victorious♪
She will get the better of us♪
Her ways are mysterious♫
But she will be victorious~♪

Lyrics from Wolfmother:

Couldn't think of anything better than to do some work for "legend"

Day 14, "Overgrown"

Nothing says overgrown to me like climbing ivy. I've always adored the look of it, so I decided to just make a quick little set of climbing ivy that could be put over something else.

I was just made aware of this video yesterday through @Frosty and it's already become almost mandatory for me. It's got a very simple chorus that is easy to turn into a mantra to chant when things get a bit overwhelming.

I also suggest reading about how the song came to be here:
