This month I made patterns from Youtube videos of flying animals! I marked specific points on the wing throughout one wingbeat, and drew in curves that fit all 15 points in the wingbeat loop. 

You can check out the full sized GIF here or pick up a poster for your room here.

it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men. 

and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.

A short note on the Geek Girl Illuminati shirt/patch - several people have asked if, despite not being or identifying as a Geek Girl, they could wear this shirt. My answer is a resounding YES. I made this shirt as what I hoped was a positive and encouraging response to the way women are sometimes viewed and treated in geek culture. I think of it as the opposite of this shirt. I’m not meaning it to be antagonistic, but I don’t mind if it is a little intimidating.
I chose the phrase “we’ve got your back” because it works on a few levels - for those Geek Girls wearing it, it’s a symbol of encouragement; a celebration of women in comics, gaming, writing, art, cosplay, etc. For those who simply love and appreciate the Geek Girls in their lives and media, “we’ve got your back” means solidarity and is, I hope, an expression of support.
There’s a lot of negativity towards women in geekdom, and there’s understandably the want to scream and yell about how awful it can be. I feel that on a weekly basis at least - for myself or someone I like - but I want to focus on the power that comes from supporting each other and working to make the industry better, bit by bit. I like to think that someone wearing this shirt would come to your table if you looked like you were in trouble, or would intervene at a bar if someone was being a creep, or would speak out online against misogyny, or would just make an effort to seek out and celebrate women’s contributions to the nerd world.
I know that’s a lot to ask from a t-shirt, but that was my thinking when I made it, and I made it inspired by the communities I’ve found both online and off for women in comics. They make me feel powerful!
Plus, MRAs will hate it and it looks pretty badass.

Fun fact: if you know your feline body language, you’ll notice that the lynx is deferring to the housecat. As far as these two are concerned, the housecat is the higher-ranking cat.

OH MY GOD

I think we all know what these cats are standing on.
