New Comic!

*** if I need to add more tags to stuff like this just message me and I will, it’s no trouble at all***

This is the longest comic I’ve ever done and it’s a monster and it took me forever and I never want to draw again. 

Ok, that’s not true. 

I used to take a certain route fairly frequently, a couple of times a week. And there were these two guys who were almost always hanging around on the sidewalk, and they’d always talk at me:

"Hey, red!"

"Good seeing you again"

"Looking good, red!"

(I had red hair back then)

And I thought I didn’t care so much, but then I found myself altering my route, or feeling stressed, knowing I’d likely encounter them again. 

I took the same route with a guy once, and they were there, and they said nothing. But next time I was alone, it started again, and that said it all. 

Fuck those guys. It’s my sidewalk too. 

CITATIONS:

1: Amy Poehler “I don’t fucking care if you like it”

2: Quotes from sexual offenders from… (I read through this shit and it’s terrible awful terrible stuff)

Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

So. Fucking. Cool.
