note to self : and note to anyone who cares:

I’ll be posting individual shots of the little opossum and eventually the huge opossum I did a couple years ago (first opossum I ever did)

And hopefully..eventually..I’ll get to work on more stuff soon.

I am just dying to see some actual respectful, wonderful, thoughtful trans related artwork out there..whether it be films, paintings, drawings, sculpture…whatever..the lack of quality shit is disturbing.

Because honestly most stuff I see put out by people  is embarrassing. 

I may sound like an asshole because of this..but really? Let’s see something that doesn’t just fetishize the trans body or is done by some white person. Or HELL by someone who is actually trans.

Remember Martha, the last of her kind, who died on this day a century ago. September 1st marks the extinction of the passenger pigeon, a species of North American bird with incomparable population numbers before they were completely eradicated by humans at the beginning of the 20th century. 
3.7 billion to 0 in forty years.
And if you are wishing this wouldn’t happen again, hoping that history doesn’t repeat itself - remember that we are currently enduring the sixth major mass extinction event. While the other five in our earth’s history were naturally caused by everything from major meteoritic impacts, to extreme cooling or warming of the environment, and frequently changing atmosphere - the latest event, Number Six, is being completely attributed to humans. This is the Holocene Extinction. 
In 2012 the IUCN reported that 30% of amphibians are at risk of extinction; as well as 21% of mammals, reptiles, and fish, 12% of birds, 68% of plants. We are looking to lose 30-50% of all species of life on our planet by the middle of the century. 
This may feel like a hopeless inevitability, but the future is not set in stone. What we need for this cause is awareness. What we need is an investment of personal interest. We need voices, and students, and teachers. We need scientists, and law makers, and committees and new legislation for the environment. We need communicators. We need enthusiasts and what we really need is to ruin apathy. This is a shared planet, not just between ourselves but with every miraculous piece of life that has erupted on its unlikely surface in the last billion years. We owe it to that great improbability not to mess this up.

Posting these guys on my etsy today… I’ll miss them. I haven’t been posting any work or trying to seriously sell anything in forever because if school life. Anyway - these are both the first Guinea pigs I ever did and both of them were together in a piece I posted awhile back titled “Elements” from the art show I had last year at the Blood Orange Infoshop in Riverside. If interested in any small animals, birds, insects etc taxidermy wise please let me know! I’m pretty much always open for commissions. #taxidermy #gunieapigs

Different angles.

Some different angles… I didn’t want to really put her in a completely fixed position (yet?) most likely she will just hang around laying on her back probably. #taxidermy #opossum

Ever hear the term “SJW”? It means “social justice warrior,” and it refers specifically to people who point out racism or sexism in movies, video games, and other pop culture. Those people are considered worse than other types of critics because instead of just pointing out that a movie has flaws, they’re accusing people who like it of being awful.

Except they’re not, of course. If someone points out that the alternator belt in your car is slipping, they’re not accusing you of being some kind of mustache-twirling, white cat-stroking supervillain for having car problems. They’re not accusing you of anything. They’re talking about your fucking car.

I don’t know what’s been happening over at Cracked lately, but damn.
