Read "Shades of A"

 "Shades of A" is a comic by Tab Kimpton.  The main character is asexual and a Muslim.  The characters are drawn with different body types.  They have awkward interactions just like real people do, but they still manage to have friends and families.  There is some adult content, asexuality notwithstanding, but it works.

So. Much. Love.  I chugged the whole thing in an evening.

Poem: "Escape from the Makery"

This poem came out of the September 2013 [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam. It was inspired by a sculpture by Choi Xoo Ang; see front view and back view. There is male and female nudity, so this is NSFW. The view of the whole gallery show has larger images. This poem also fills the "theft" square in my 8-12-13 card for the [community profile] hc_bingo fest. It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the series Diminished Expectations.

WARNING: This poem contains explicit references to body-horror, slavery, and running away from slavery. Readers sensitive to these topics should think carefully before reading ahead.
