Special Feature: The Basics of Feminism
In coordination with last week's community events and specifically my group feature on feminism, Some Community Events 7 I've decided to expand on the topic with some basic information about feminism and why we need it AND feature some awesome art in the process to get across my point!
Introduction
When I first submitted my paper: Fighting Rape Culture I was already pretty powerfully into being a feminist and I support all those things that go with it. I know how easy it is to be misinformed or dismissive of Feminism so I would like to shed some light on what it's all about!
So what is feminism?


Yep. That's it. If you think it means anything else, then you probably aren't looking in the right places. And you probably are one if you agree with this statement, you just don't realize it because feminism has such a bad rap and we'll

Activity


So here's the thing. I click "Add Media" and then it tells me I gotta upgrade to a Core Membership in order to include pictures. So I click the button and then get the "Oops! That page doesn't exist!"

They set me up for a loss, you guys. I'm telling ya!

Anyway you can click onto my gallery for my commission rates. They can be open for negotiation depending on your project.

You can also check out my portfolio at: hubbellarts.tumblr.com/


I specialize in character design so if you've got an OC or a D&D character or maybe want some fanart then let me know. But I'm a Jack of All Trades so anything you got is something I wanna do.

Thanks for reading!
Absolutely nobody is going to message me after this media-less trash post but HEY I had to try, right?


Howdy folks!

Friendly reminder that it's important for artists (especially working artists) to take breaks frequently and add stretching and rest into your routine. Earlier this year I had pain in my hand and wrist and didn't really think much of it since that was a normal occurrence after - say - a bout of gaming or a big art project.

Fast forward to September and I'm having to see an orthopedic specialist and am on orders to immobilize my hand for three solid weeks.

* * *

I'm just wrapping up week two - it's going OK. I pay the rent with my art so I've definitely taken a hit.

If you feel like helping me out at all you can send me a buck on Ko-Fi:

ko-fi.com/justinhubbell

or support me on Patreon:

patreon.com/justinhubbell

or if you wanted to check out my portfolio and maybe contact me for a commission I'm obviously open to that too!

hubbellarts.tumblr.com/

* * *

When I started encountering severe hand and wrist pain one of the things I did was buy a bunch of doodads like compression gloves and various braces. Those didn't really do much, and I spent a pretty penny on them.

What made a bigger difference was changing the layout of my workspace to be more ergonomic, working on my posture and the way I draw. There's a bunch of youtube videos already out there about drawing from the shoulder and elbow - WATCH THEM.

Rest above all I think is key. It's a super hard thing to do because art is fun. Drawing is fun. Using the computer is fun. But honestly I wish I could go back in time and give myself this advice.

Thanks for reading! ^_^

Open for Commissions!
I can't really think of an artist that ISN'T open for commissions but I've never tried to take advantage of this space so here are my rates!
Depending on what you have in mind I may be open to negotiation so don't be shy! What's your budget?

My gallery here is a touch out of date so here is my portfolio if you'd like to peruse:

Pulp Fiction was my favorite movie. Okay maybe not my number one, after all Monty Python and the Holy Grail? That's unfair.
But Pulp Fiction was hands down one of my favorite movies of all time.

I saw it when I was maybe 13 and it rocked my socks, everything about it was cool, funny, brutal, sexy... It was a perfect movie and I would relish the opportunity to introduce it to my friends. I must have watched it 30 times between 13 and 18.

In college a professor even broke it down in my History of Film course - citing Pulp Fiction as a prime example of post modernism (which it is.)

Fast forward (or rewind, really) to life after college. I had received my BFA sure but it was my minor in Black Studies that had transformed my consciousness from being "neutral" to "political."

I hadn't seen Pulp Fiction in some time so I watched it all by myself. And it was as great as I remembered, totally flawless, until...
...until Quentin decided that the best person to play "Jimmie Dimmick" would be himself.

When Vincent and Jules get a thorough tongue lashing from Jimmie for showing up with a dead body it's a glorious moment in the film where everything comes to a screeching halt only to go right back into 5th gear again. It's awesome, and Jimmie has one of the best monologues in the movie. Except...

...except it's fucking Quentin Tarantino! His performance is awkward and clumsy at best, and at worst?
At worst I think he just wanted to say the N word as many times as possible and get away with it.
Frankly it felt like the part was written for a black man and Quentin just stepped in and said "No, I want this part."

NOTHING about his performance is convincing - because he's NOT an actor.
If the part was for a complete nerd (which is what Quentin is) but it wasn't.

Pulp Fiction had always been one of my favorite movies, but to be completely honest? Quentin ruined it. Completely ruined the ending for me.
And in my despair I began watching his other movies scouring them for reasons to defend his work but instead the more I watched less I liked him!

- - I will admit that I can't throw out Kill Bill 1 and 2 or Death Proof I just can't even though they are problematic - -

And then Django Unchained comes out and one of my favorite directors Spike Lee (who also shouldn't cast himself in his own fucking movies) calls it an insult and refuses to watch it.

I was curious what Quentin's thoughts were, but I never got them. I got angry rants and tantrums like this one:



And they weren't the words of a calm collected person trying to make a statement about our values or the way we tell history, or even just the fun of reversing the roles of the victimized Black man... It was his screaming "I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT SO THERE."

There are too many angry nerds.  I know it seemed cool in the 2000s?  But nerds losing their shit is tired, tasteless, and often offensive.

I don't know how else to say it. I admit that I too have behaved like Quentin Tarantino when confronted with questions that rub me the wrong way.
I too am an egotistical prick sometimes. I'm not saying he's a bad person? or that his films are bad?

I just can't anymore. I can't do it. YOU BROKE MY HEART, QUENTIN.

I write/draw autobiographical comics. The goal is to self publish several volumes of books, ultimately working up to my graphic novel.

I also like making little cartoons about politics and nerd (my) culture.

I've read several of your feminism comic and I wanted to say that you've made me feel better inside. Though I'm sure many men are in favor of gender equality, very few of them are brave enough to outright say they're feminists. The very word attracts hate and stupidity like to other on the internet.
You, being a man, and still taking a disinterested stand for real gender equality gives me hope for the future. Respect my friend.

Hey, thank you for this comment!  It really does me a world of good.

I have, in fact, heard from other men who really appreciated the comic and shared it among their male friends - so there's hope still!
I hope it becomes a resource for introducing people to Feminism, so feel free to share the link: www.justinhubbell.com/orcs-vs-…

I'm glad I didn't let you down! ^__^

Yeah, change comes through awareness and education. I will try and spread the word like you do!
I'm glad there's people like you and the other men who appreciate the comics exist and I hope there's more and more of them!

Thank you!  Working on the revisions now - soon you'll be able to read it in book form ^_^
...but by "soon" I mean "holy crap this is going to take a while."

If you donated (any amount) on my Patreon you'll be thanked in the book!
