It doesn’t much matter what line of argument you take as a woman. If you venture into traditional male territory, the abuse comes anyway. It’s not what you say that prompts it—it’s the fact that you are saying it.

— Mary Beard, speaking at the British Museum in February. Rebecca Mead profiles the Cambridge academic and “troll slayer” in this week’s issue.

Project complete. I can +almost+ fold a paper boat without having to watch the how-to video.

Thank you to caoine for giving me an opportunity to create another one of these. 

This now lives on the same shelf as my book safe and SNM box and it brings me delight every time I see it.

Here are a couple more pictures:

A private commission for burlesque dancer Lily Faye and her beau. Tattoos are such a pain to draw, especially when I have to re-create actual pieces done by other artists, but so rewarding in the end!

A heads up to everyone reblogging this illustration! It’s become quite popular, and there is now a limited number of prints being sold by Lily Faye, the lady depicted here. There are only 15 prints left, and they are $25 plus $5.60 priority shipping. You can Paypal Lily directly at LadyZiggyStardust@hotmail.com. Proceeds benefit both the subject and the artist!

Emily Terndrup & Derrick Belcham Present ‘Debut’

scorchedthesnake:

Emily Terndrup, who among many other brilliant moments in her various roles at the McKittrick is the one who blew your mind at the Carnavale with that amazing solo, is crowd funding what appears to be a really awesome project called “Debut.” 

We have a fantastic tradition in the SNM fan community of supporting precisely this kind of project. Click here to find out more and donate.

Just a reminder that although MC Frontalot’s Question Bedtime officially comes out on Tuesday, if you pre-order it at his site you can receive a digital copy of the album, right now. Which means that you could be hearing a number of high-quality jams including but not limited to Shudders, featuring Kid Koala and The Protomen, right now. So go do that thing, maybe.

Question Bedtime is officially out as of today! Go buy it!
