The Dragonpeople - Canto I
-For RandomVanGloboii
I. Long ago, in a faraway land, there lived a wearle of dragons and tribe of Hom.
While the dragons made their home high up in the mountains, the Hom made their home in the forest and valley below.
While the dragons were gigantic beings of strength, flight, and the gift of fire, the Hom were little, fragile creatures who relied on their wit, agility, and the gift of stories and songs to survive.
But despite their differences, the two species coexisted in peace and harmony. The Hom looked up to the dragons as gods- majestic, powerful beings who brought protection and good luck. The dragons saw the Hom as companions and resourceful allies.
The dragons and the Hom lived together in paradise for centuries... until the kingdom men came.
Greedy, powerful, merciless men who wore gleaming suits of armor, brandished weapons that cut and burned, and carried no compassion in their hearts.
Men whose sole drive was to conquer the world- occupy and rule over fertile land, pilla

Cultural Appropriation 101
This news article touches upon subjects that are sensitive to many people. Ordinarily, I try my best to avoid drama and online conflict, but I feel that this growing fashion trend needs to be addressed before it becomes the popular thing to do. It is my hope that through calm, rational discussion and input from users, we can start a dialogue that puts an end to ignorance and puts artists on the path towards creating beautiful works of art that do not unintentionally offend various groups of people.
The issue I am speaking of is Cultural Appropriation.
I started noticing the beginning of this trend around last summer. Art and fashion seem to have taken a turn towards incorporating stereotypes of First Nations people, creating photoshoots, clothing and artwork featuring warbonnets, feathered headbands, eagles, dream catchers, moccasins and more. This fashion trend appropriates the culture of First Nations people, usually without consent, or thought for what is considered sacred. Often, p

Someone at work told me I should be a comedian. See, I suck at trying to be funny. It's only when I do it unintentionally that peeps find me hilarious.
Are you, are you coming to the tree...
Another random drawing to pass the time. This one was inspired by the graphic novel "I Kill Giants." I also thought of the Hanging Tree song playing in the background.

Zariba and art done by me.
