I took a couple of hours out of my day to be on a panel for Young Author’s Day, an event put on by the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association. I was invited to join by John Lustig, who I feel very lucky to call my friend and mentor. We answered the usual questions about the writing process and how we broke into comics, but I was even more intrigued by the audience. Notice something about them?

Yeah. GIRLS. Very. Young. Girls.

So I asked THEM some questions. “How many of you read comics?”

All hands went up.

"How many of you want to make comics some day?"

Most of the hands went up.

Here’s where it really got interesting. “How many of you BUY comics?”

Only one hand raised. I asked her where she buys her comics. She said, “At the comic book store.”

"Do you have a comic book store you like going to?" I asked.

She hesitated. “It’s complicated.”

That’s 10 year-old speak for “I have to go there to get comics but the store makes me uncomfortable.” The rest of them read webcomics. None of them had heard of Comixology before, but they knew all about it by the time the panel was over. What comic would they like to see most? Minecraft. Only Steve needs to be a girl.

It was a fascinating experience, especially in the wake of this article detailing why girls in the 1980s (like me and one of the moms nodding eagerly in the audience) stopped buying comics for 20 years.

The future of comics is bright indeed.

This is absolutely wonderful.

oh. my. GOD

Young Authors Day is still going? That’s amazing!

I did that when I was in fourth grade, and I’m really super happy to see it’s still a thing and there are many girls attending.

(for the record, when I went I remember my peer group being mostly girls at the time, and that was 20 years ago now)

Lets do an experiment: reblog if you would feel safer hanging out with trans women (regardless of what genitals they currently posses) than Cis women who are transphobic and deny trans women’s obvious womanhood.

So, I was in the car today and saw someone with the license plate “X0DUS3 5”, so I thought it was like Exodus 3:5 and I looked it up, and do you know what it said?

Have you ever read anything about Han van Meegeren, the man who forged the Vermeers?  He’s fascinating, and there are a couple of decent books about him.

LET ME YELL A LITTLE TO THE INTERNET AT LARGE ABOUT MY LOVE FOR HAN VAN MEEGEREN

HE COMBINES ALL OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS

  • SAYING “FUCK YOU” TO ART SNOBBERY
  • CON MEN WITH HEARTS OF GOLD
  • TECHNICAL SKILLS USED IN THE COMMISSION OF HILARIOUS CRIMES
  • ART HISTORY
  • TERRIBLE THINGS HAPPENING TO NAZIS

THE BEAUTY OF VAN MEEGEREN IS THAT HE STARTED FORGING VERMEERS BECAUSE CRITICS HATED HIS ART (WHICH WAS ADMITTEDLY KIND OF TERRIBLE) BUT THEN WHEN HE STARTED PAINTING VERMEERS HE STUDIED THEM REALLY HARD AND LEARNED ABOUT AGING TECHNIQUES AND PAINTED THE SHIT OUT OF SOME FAKE VERMEERS 

AND OKAY MAYBE HE CHEATED SOME PEOPLE BUT I’M SORT OF INCLINED TO FORGIVE HIM BECAUSE IT’S NOT LIKE THEY WEREN’T RICH ENOUGH TO TAKE THE HIT AND THEN

GET THIS

HE SOLD A FAKE VERMEER TO A NAZI BANKER WHO SOLD IT TO HERMANN GOERING

WHO GOT HIS JOLLIES STEALING ART FROM AND THEN BRUTALLY MURDERING THE ENTIRE JEWISH POPULATION OF EVERYWHERE HE WENT

SO FUCK GOERING.

AND AFTER THE WAR VAN MEEGEREN WAS BROUGHT UP ON CHARGES OF COLLUDING WITH THE ENEMY BECAUSE HE SOLD VERMEERS TO COMMANDER SHITHEAD OVER THERE

AND VAN MEEGEREN WAS LIKE

"Naw bro that was a fake I just brought tons of legit art and money into the country by cheating Nazis with a bunch of forged paintings."

SO THEY LOCKED HIM IN A ROOM AND SAID IF YOU’RE SO CLEVER AND THOSE REALLY WERE FAKE, DO IT AGAIN

AND WITH DECADES OF HIS FREEDOM AT STAKE

HE PAINTED A VERMEER

image

"Jesus Among the Doctors" aka "Young Christ in the Temple" aka "SCHOOLED YOU LOL" please note still kind of a shitty artist, you make the baby Vermeer cry

SO HE WAS ALL *MIC DROP* BUT THEN HE HAD TO PICK THE MIC BACK UP BECAUSE HE WAS CHARGED WITH FORGERY AND SENTENCED TO A YEAR IN PRISON.

BEFORE THE SENTENCE COULD BE CARRIED OUT HE DIED, WHICH IS SAD

BUT HIS SECOND WIFE GOT TO KEEP ALL THE PROCEEDS OF HIS DASTARDLY DEALINGS BECAUSE OF LEGAL DOODAHERY AND THAT SET HER UP FOR LIFE

SO BASICALLY HAN VAN MEEGEREN: SHITTY PAINTER, GOOD HUSBAND, EXEMPLARY CON MAN, MADE HIS BONES CHEATING NAZIS. 

Art history is never boring, if you know where to dig.

Rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan (emerged before Samurai)

An onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?) was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. Many wives, widows, daughters, and rebels answered the call of duty by engaging in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honor in times of war. They also represented a divergence from the traditional “housewife” role of the Japanese woman. They are sometimes mistakenly referred to as female samurai, although this is an oversimplification. Onna bugeisha were very important people in ancient Japan. Significant icons such as Empress Jingu, Tomoe Gozen, Nakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako were all onna bugeisha who came to have a significant impact on Japan.

Reblogging cause I have way too many dumbasses telling me historically women were never warriors. Uneducated fuckwits
