Art things today:

Finished the pencils for page 54 of “Tock the Gnome,” worked on a piece for Fosterson Week, and figured out what illustration I need to do for our wedding invitations/table centerpieces.

All on top of so many wedding errands! And many unexpected scores in the decoration department.

Letting myself feel accomplished, thank you.

I wanna go to a faerie gathering

gagasm:

It is like a dream of mine but idek where they happen or how to start

Well, in the case that you mean other Faerie-minded people, and seeing that we exist in this physical/material realm, I’ve personally found that Faerie Festivals are a good place to start. Depending on where you live, there could be one very closeby, and even if you have to travel a bit, it’s really worth it, in my experience :)

My part of an art trade with Akili Amethyst over at deviantART. She did an amazing stained-glass inspired piece featuring the main characters from &#8221;Tock the Gnome&#8221; for me - and from me, she asked for a piece featuring two of her personas with some symbolism that&#8217;s important to her.
This was particularly fun to do - a dragon princess and a colorful fox lady? Yes.

"Human beings don't have a right to water."

Across the globe, Nestlé is pushing to privatize and control public water resources.

Nestlé’s Chairman of the Board, Peter Brabeck, has explained his philosophy with “The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution.”

Since that quote has gotten widespread attention, Brabeck has backtracked, but his company has not. Around the world, Nestlé is bullying communities into giving up control of their water. It’s time we took a stand for public water sources.

Tell Nestlé that we have a right to water. Stop locking up our resources!

At the World Water Forum in 2000, Nestlé successfully lobbied to stop water from being declared a universal right — declaring open hunting season on our local water resources by the multinational corporations looking to control them. For Nestlé, this means billions of dollars in profits. For us, it means paying up to 2,000 percent more for drinking water because it comes from a plastic bottle.

Now, in countries around the world, Nestlé is promoting bottled water as a status symbol. As it pumps out fresh water at high volume, water tables lower and local wells become degraded. Safe water becomes a privilege only affordable for the wealthy.

In our story, clean water is a resource that should be available to all. It should be something we look after for the public good, to keep safe for generations, not something we pump out by billions of gallons to fuel short-term private profits. Nestlé thinks our opinion is “extreme”, but we have to make a stand for public resources. Please join us today in telling Nestlé that it’s not “extreme” to treat water like a public right.

Tell Nestlé to start treating water like a public right, not a source for private profits!

holy fuck

this is a huge deal in latin america especially and i need some more people to be aware of this and care

Is nestle a movie supervillain or something

Water is literally one of the basic necessities for life oh my god how is it not a right.

Water will be the next great commodity, like oil and gold, it is not inexhaustible, cities in California are already running out. When millions of gallons of water are used in fracking,  that water is polluted and remains buried in the ground where it is no longer part of the water cycle.

This is terrible. I can’t even imagine what this would do to the environment, too. Our bodies, and our planet, are made up mostly of water. How can Nestle even think this is *remotely* okay?

They hire extra firepower from unfamiliar lands, and together they seek the island and the princess. But what they seek may not be quite what they expected…
WARNINGS: Will contain lesbian romance, size-positivity, conundrums and tomfoolery.
