year of the rooster


So this drawing is on the bottom left front of the tshirt, and it's big, about as big as a belly. Labour intennnsive! I should learn how to freaking screenprint.

animal tshirts

I've started working on a new, improved year of the rooster tshirt for my dad. This time it will be colourfast... heh.

Shoes I found on the street!


Heheh. The furtive queer street men's shoes collector. Hm, long slogan.

Christian Marquee!


This was the marquee outside of a church. I know it was sanctimonious but I quite enjoyed it.

Moderate Muslims



This slowly building argument disgusts me. From USA Today:
To help stop terrorists, moderate Muslims could help make our security forces in the USA more efficient. They could lobby to change our laws to allow profiling of terrorists. Muslim groups could insist their imams refuse to file lawsuits when they behave suspiciously...Moderates could insist that all young male Arab and Muslims agree to additional screenings at airports and not complain...

Facebook censorship

This is a tribute to Ali, who got banned from facebook for a photograph of himself ejaculating. Highly unnatural! Totally obscene!

This was a higly experimental draft of Butch #38 that I didn't use in the end. Sunny's play, OtherWise, is awesome.

Dandy

Today on the subway I saw the most handsome man. I yanked out my pen and paper with excitement, but just as I finished his shoes two ladies blocked my view with in two large strollers. So I had to finish the rest of the picture in a glaringly obvious way. I was practically standing in my chair, embarassingly..

gender dysphoria



But I keep coming back to these beloved combinations. It's interesting to me how instinctive it is. Nobody told me to dress this way, if anything it's discouraged. It makes me think that it must be an authentically natural urge, in generations before and after me. Nobody taught us to be this way; it's not new, it's not urban, it's not modern, it's not white, it's not Western. It's as natural as the birds and bees, and thanks to Lyon de Clarasvals for reminding me, this whole shirt and tie show is probably healing.

p.s. today someone made a request to have more Qlay strips! That's nice, I thought they bored people. Anybody second that request?

gender dysphoria


But then I get on the subway and I wonder why I do this - my ties, my loafers, my butch everything. Maybe it looks like I'm doing this for attention. People look displeased with what appears to be weird attention-seeking. It feels this way all the way to the office, in the office, and on the way home again. It's ridiculous masochism.

gender dysphoria


I'm very attached to my binder and my shirts. I put them on with pleasure. I think that male macho me is the most handsome mirror image in the world. It's not a feeling of shame, it's pride.

reading on the subway


This line made me chuckle. I don't need to get married, I just need to get RICH!

good new omens!


People you can relate to are good omens. Alicia and I both found that we could relate to subway newspaper diggers.

good new omens!


I was reading this awful article about poverty and when I looked up I realized that the guy across from me was watching my stricken face with fascination and sympathy.
