I'm now using this new avatar for a while because I'm really happy with the emojo I commissioned from @dzuk, maker of Mutant Standard, a set of emoji you see in many cool places ^^'. I was positively surprised by how much this emoji resembles my face!
Many thanks to zir for putting up with me.

Also, a reminder for you to consider giving artists money if you can afford to! They make really cool and important stuff.

And if you have a sona, consider having emojos of them made by Dzuk!

Accessibility issues are related to some kind of fundamental incompatibility to access something a certain way. ie. voice control, screen readers, switch control, colourblind modes, etc.

It is incredibly different to 'I don't like this'.

politics, centrism bullshit

if you think the fediverse doesn't have nazis in it, you are mistaken.

you have to remember that many of our servers are gated communities. Just because we try to keep out bad actors doesnt mean they arent there.

Telling someone there's no Nazis on the fediverse is disingenuous at best.

To the ones who are talked over, not listened to or made to be quiet:

Your words have value. Your thoughts, hopes and dreams are important. Your questions, beliefs and experiences matter. Spoken or not, your inner voice is precious and wonderful.

I keep forgetting to share this - I couldn't share it while I was working on it because it was a commission for someone as a gift for someone else, so I had to wait until they received it!

This took me out of my comfort zone something fierce and I kept doubting that I could pull it off, but I love how it came out. They wanted a mandala that looked like those blue ink porcelain floral patterns. It's coloured with Faber-Castell Pitt pens, which blend very nicely.

Spanish justice & democracy, eh?

For organising a referendum the following Catalan political leaders have received these jail sentences:

* Oriol Junqueras: 13 years
* Raül Romeva: 12 years
* Jordi Turull: 12 years
* Dolors Bassa: 12 years
* Carme Forcadell: 11.5 years
* Joaquim Forn: 10.5 years
* Josep Rull: 10.5 years
* Jordi Cuixart: 9 years
* Jordi Sànchez: 9 years

It is a disgrace. Even worse is the almost complete silence from the EU.
