Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four
Part Five
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008.  It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there.  It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them.  A larger work gets talked about from time to time.  It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories.  Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans.  Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Kate Beaton is one of those really exceptional storytellers who can communicate a lot of different things in a lot of different ways. This is one of the more complex and fascinating stories she’s told, and I love it.

My comic; “Introversion” is finished! Please go to the main page of my blog to read it in full size (the text is kinda small)

I really hope you’ll like it!

A beautiful comic! I’m not really an introvert by nature, though sometimes I am by habit. But I have a few friends (and family) who are, and when they make such a significant effort to come along to things to make me happy, I remember how lucky I am to have such awesome people around me. 

Wild Geese

fuckyeahladywriters:

You do not have to be good. 
You do not have to walk on your knees 
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. 
You only have to let the soft animal of your body 
love what it loves. 
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. 
Meanwhile the world goes on. 
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain 
are moving across the landscapes, 
over the prairies and the deep trees, 
the mountains and the rivers. 
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, 
are heading home again. 
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, 
the world offers itself to your imagination, 
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting—
over and over announcing your place 
in the family of things.

Ele, Ele, Ele, will you never cease to amaze? I love Spirited Away (which we first watched together in Japanese and it was one of the best series of classes ever), I love No-face, and I LOVE this.

Here is a master post of all of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries teas, available here on Adagio Teas. Enjoy!

Lizzie: [irish breakfasthazelnutblackberry] Firm and stubborn, but always with the best intentions. This tea may be off-putting at first, but has an underlying sweetness that will ultimately win you over with its heart.

Jane: [vanilla oolongraspberry patchcream, cinnamon] Freshly baked snickerdoodle—sorry, cinnamon sugar cookies, with a bit of raspberry zing. Gentle but firm, and always willing to see the good in people—because everyone deserves tea.

Lydia: [masala chaiblood orangeginger, chocolate chips] Outgoing, energetic, and never, ever, boring! You’ll go totes cray for this tea. Spicy, fruity, and sweet when you least expect it. 

Darcy: [assam melodycreamalmond] This blend may have a strong first impression, but it sweetens with time. A little nutty, slightly creamy, it brews up to be a handsome cuppa. The more you drink, the more you’ll come to love it.

Gigi: [white peonyosmanthusdewy cherry] Light, fun and upbeat, this will keep you on your toes no matter how unforgiving the hills may be. 

Fitz: [mocha nut matevanillacinnamon] Cozy and warm, with a bit of cinnamon spice. Like wearing a cozy sweater on a cool day, it’s a blend that is both familiar and exciting. An excellent tea for a good friend.

Bing: [honeybush vanillatoasted sesame] A warm and bright blend that will always do its best to make you smile. Sweet and unassuming, with the power to sweep you off your feet.

Charlotte: [earl grey moonlightchestnutcaramel] A calm and comforting blend inspired by the logical and level headed Charlotte. Soothing earl grey with chestnut and hints of caramel will keep you wondering how you ever got along without it.

Wickham: [tiger eyepeachginger, cinnamon] An eye-catching blend that’s sweet at first, but finishes with a bit of a bite. This one’s for you, Peach. 

So…yeah. TEA. Enjoy it, and let me know what you think!

LBD SPECIFIC TEAS WHAT?!

This. Is. Beautiful. 

And now I want tea. These all sound amazing, and kind of make me want to maybe blend my own tea… future career prospect?
