Major Arcana #16- The Tower

I’ll be selling this as my debut booklet at SPX in mid-September (along with several of my other short comics)!
If you want to reserve a copy, or can’t make it to SPX but are still interested in the book, shoot me an email at Amusecaro@gmail.com, and I’ll give you the details!

So cool looking.

Oh hay look women of colour were an integral part of the ‘cool’ part of history too, how about that.  They were like. Doing stuff that supposedly only heroic white dudes had done. That makes women valid participants in collective history now, right? Right? This is in high school history books now, right? Right? Huh?

It reminds me of that one famous painting/sculpture of the soldiers raising the flag
I like this one a lot better.

Medievalpoc Presents: History of POC in Math and Science Week, 8-3-14 through 8-9-14!

Medievalpoc’s first Patreon Milestone Goal has been reached, and the History of POC in Math and Science Week is happening soon! This all-new themed week will focus on the contribution of people of color to the fields of mathematics, science, physics, medicine, natural philosophy, and much, much more!

There will be a focus on primary documents with interactive elements, visual and documentary evidence, innovators and their biographies, and notable personages of color from the Islamic Golden Age, Medieval Europe, African Empires and Universities, Asian images and texts, and discussion about early modern globalization regarding how this knowledge traveled.

If you have an article, image, document, or commentary you would like to submit, here’s your chance to weigh in on this topic! Please use the “Math and Science Week” and any other relevant tags for your submission, and I look forward to hearing about your favorite mathematicians and scientists of color!

Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me. Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?

So there we go! If we don’t challenge abuses of authority or flagrant disregard for laws by the people tasked with keeping them, everything will be fine. Problem solved.

Oh. Except for the… abuses of authority. I guess? Oh and the flagrant disregard for laws. HMMMMMM WHAT A FUCKING CONUNDRUM WE HAVE ON OUR HANDS HERE, HUH?

Inside the Secret Sketchbooks of @graemebase

For more from Graeme’s previously-unseen library of sketches, follow @graemebase on Instagram.

If these images of mechanical, organic and otherwordly creatures feel familiar, it could be because they come from the imagination of beloved children’s book illustrator Graeme Base (@graemebase).

"I’ve been writing and illustrating picture books for something like 30 years, but for every finished piece there are dozens of sketches that have never seen the light of day," he explains. The Australian artist—perhaps best known for the 1986 alphabet book Animalia (1986)—uses his Instagram account to share this trove of beautiful, unpublished pieces.

"The recurring themes in my art are nature and fantasy with whimsical overtones," he says. "I’m slightly shocked to find myself well into my fifties now, but inside the 11-year-old schoolboy is alive and kicking."
