Please do not ask for shoots, or if I' m at X-convention I'm taking a long break from photography.

30 day coloring challenge →


This coloring challenge is meant to bring awareness of how many different ways you can color an image. My own challenge will include downloadable PSDs throughout, but your own need not do so.

If you do not understand how a specific adjustment layer works, I do have a tutorial covering them {here

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry →


This article is heartbreaking. And true.

There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit. 

There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.

NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.

Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article. 

Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.

We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)

Adding onto this. 
This is extremely important to talk about. And through my experiences just as a 3D tutor alone for game design classes. By off handed comments from other classmates to generalization of why girls feel like they need to play like the guys-blah blah blah even to “back in the kitchen jokes” left and right. I’m not exactly even in industry yet- but I know this is whats waiting for me once I hit that point. But will say its not causing me to back down, instead its making me walk forward. 

From that I became very vocal about talking about these things, or even referencing these articles when I see them.
