Um. This is what I get for ordering a bagel during Passover, right? #einsteins #einsteinbros
I couldn’t sleep so I decided to finish this drawing of Ashlynn Ella (from the show I work on) before tackling colors to a comic book cover. Enjoy!
On another note, I’ve not forgotten about the “Draw Yourself Meme”, I just have a lot of freelance and day job work to do before I can get to those.
THIS INSTRUMENT IS CALLED THE KALIMBA. THIS IS FATE.
this is the best kalimba playing i’ve ever seen EVER
I HAD NO IDEA WHAT A KALIMBA LOOKED LIKE UNTIL JUST THIS SECOND IM BLOWN AWAY
I had one of these growing up and I was such shit at it I literally have never heard one used for anything other than plonky, labored renditions of ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ in my living room. This is gorgeous.
I feel that things like this are posted so often with no historical information and I think that’s pretty damaging even if it’s unintentional. It just contributes to the erasure of non-western societies and their cultures.
The Kalimba is an African instrument common throughout Sub-Saharan Africa and it’s also known as the “sansa” and “mbira”. It was typically played while walking by traveling “griots” who keep the history of the tribe or village and for entertainment purposese. And get this: the wood or bamboo-tiled instruments were first invented 3000 years ago! And the metal-tiled ones appeared in the Zambezi River Valley 1,300 years ago. There’s so much history behind this instrument and it’s an injustice to the those whose culture it originates from to post about it and never once mention them. Anyway this is just tiny bit of the history I felt like adding from the wiki page, and the entire thing it very interesting so I’d encourage you to read it all!

Hi, I’m a writer. My hobbies include not writing.
i forgot to mention i witnessed something disgusting on the plane today
it was one of the flight attendants’ birthday and they announced it and we all clapped for her and it was cute
later, she was walking by and the college-aged boy (i knew his age bc his crosscountry teammate was seated next to me- they were headed out for some big race) in the row ahead of me stopped her, like he needed help with something. she leaned down to talk to him, like you do, and he leapt up and tried to kiss her.
she jerked back with a yelp, and looking horrified, stammered an apology and went to hide behind the little flight attendant curtain. when she emerged, he stopped her *again*, this time to say he was sorry and make the excuse that he just wanted to give her a birthday kiss. she kept her distance this time, answered him coolly, and stayed at the front of the plane until everyone disembarked.
i asked if she was okay as i left, and she said she was, and i wished her a happy birthday. i just felt really uncomfortable for her, that she couldn’t slap him and tell him to fuck off like he deserved, that she had to be polite because of her job, and that this happened on her birthday after such a cute moment with the passengers applauding for her.
