are in the air, & I'm nothing if not extremely pliable! I'm James, @paralithode but in a smaller community w/a nicer feel! I'm an illustrator, fantasist & broad-spectrum nerd.

I've lived w/ since I was 14–a chronic illness that affects cognition & means I'm always exhausted+in pain. Usually not v. active (except for boosting a lot of visual art & some nice social justice threads), tho every day I say goodnight before I got to bed.

My primary partner+carer is @Damage 💕​

I'm closing large scale commissions except to the people who I'm already in talks with, but I still have commissions open for half-body, icons, portraits, things like that!

HMU prices are on my Trello

I'm basically late on half my bills and can't pay for food much longer.

@denikombucha all those photomaniped images of skinniness did exactly what they're crying wolf about too, destroying people's mental & physical health with often literally impossible standards, pushing them to buy into the diet industrial complex–these people are just telling on themselves, they can't imagine wanting to represent an image *without* a desire to degrade & manipulate.

Htf they think One ☝🏽 fat model on a magazine cover is gonna make everyone get fat when 98.9% of every Fashion/Commercial model, actor, musician, music artist, entertainment celebrity, cartoon character, being underweight since the 20’s didn’t make 98.9% of the world skinny🤨??

A whole bunch of my recent photography is now up on - I don't really have a particular focus or direction at the moment, duck appreciation aside, but that's likely to change with fall coming in and the forest changing colour. There's a bit of a back catalogue on there too 😊

Good morning friends! Yesterday's thick low-lying clouds became a flat, foggy rain-laden sky by this morning. There's a prickling mist of rain softening light, muffling sound.

The picnic was another lowkey success, catching up w/folks we hadn't seen in a long time–but generally everyone forms into their established cliques. Especially exhausted already from getting there it's hard to crack those shells & meet new people. Today fatigue+rain make for slow going.

May we find rest & healing today!

Do you support me getting more involved in my community and the IWW, even if you aren't sure about how you're going to get involved yourself?

I'd appreciate any few dollars folk felt able to throw toward - in the past I've said "all money this month goes toward X friend in need."

For September: All money will go toward my bus fare to IWW events, printing up literature, and at the end of the month, anything extra I'll donate to the IWW's GDC - pays lawyers for folk fired
