ILLUSTRATION MASTER POST!

Hello hello hotpots. 

I haven’t been on as much recently due to a few silly things. Been working a lot and have a busier social life of late. I’m still drawing and making things, though not at the rate I’d like to. I hope to change this soon. 

So here’s a collection of some of the things I’ve done over the past wee while. This isn’t even half of it, it’s inspiring to see how much stuff I’ve done, though not all of it is that great. 

Something is better than nothing, right?

Anyways, there we are, enjoy you Vegetable Pakora Pieces.

just so you know what is going on in my country right now:

  • votes came in for independence 45% yes 55% no
  • media very “”no”” centred and bias
  • unionists are now attacking yes voters
  • a seventeen year old girl has been stabbed
  • they are burning our saltire giving nazi salutes
  • our first minister resigns

please signal boost this 

Okay, so, I’m a Scot (and I voted Yes and was utterly gutted that the vote went the way it did) but - whilst, yes, there was a bit of a stramash that went on for a few hours, involving a pretty small number of people in Glasgow city centre (and another, smaller, one in Dundee) last night, the have actually been NO reports of any stabbings, there is no civil unrest and we do not need any signal boosting of this nature. The few that fell to violence appear to have been thugs looking for a fight, not anyone actually protesting or making any kind of reasonable political statement.

What we DO need is time to let ourselves draw back together, to capitalise on the EXTRAORDINARY level of political engagement we have - 84.6% of eligible voters voted, including 16 & 17 year olds who were allowed to vote for the first time - and continue the conversations we’ve all been having for years now - including many, many people who have never really felt politics were something that affected them - and for ALL of US to move FORWARD to build up our nation (within the UK) into something we are ALL JUSTIFIABLY proud of (and hopefully make sure that the UK government now delivers on the promises it made - what you CAN SIGNAL BOOST PLEASE is this petition: https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/page/s/promise-for-Scotland#petition that requests that they do that)

Important commentary. Though I would add that while it is a hateful minority of Unionists who caused Friday’s unrest this is a side of the No campaign that those who voted no need to confront. Ultimately all of us need to confront it, but those who they ally with need to confront it most. 

A lot of people have been saying ‘this is a Rangers/Orange Order thing, one side is as bad as the other’ (The other side being Celtic or the Yes Campaign, which are not mutually exclusive). From all experience of mine this is simply untrue. This scale of intimidation and harassment ONLY comes from the Unionists.

Anyways, it’s time to remobilise and define ourselves once more as a people.
