Inktober is upon us! Less than a week away, and people ALL over the world are committing to the challenge! Go to www.mrjakeparker.com/inktober for more info. #inktober
Here’s the Inktober rules:
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it on your blog (or tumblr, instagram, twitter, facebook, flickr, Pinterest or just pin it on your wall.)
3) Hashtag it with #inktober
Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.
Woohoo! It’s that time of the year again folks :) Can’t wait to do this again :D Inktober actually got me used to drawing in sharpie and helped me increase my confidence in drawing in ink. :)

Every year on Canadian Thanksgiving, we perform a ritual to purge ourselves of our rudeness, Bieber absorbs it all. He was never meant to escape, we are sorry.
He was never meant to escape.

So this week’s Junior Scientist Power Hour is part I of a series about a course I took in University where we got to go dig up dinosaurs in Saskatchewan! It is highly educational, go read it.
And these are all the students who took the course with me! Nine women, two gay fellows, and one gender non-specific person. Dinosaurs and the sciences as a whole are NOT GENDER SPECIFIC. And yet so often we see the sciences marketed towards boys and men!! It’s so dumb!
And of the chicks on this course, I also think it’s important to note how different we all look. There are a LOT of ways that bodies are shaped, and any group of nine women is going to have a broad range of these shapes, and all of them are hot in their own way. But in media, and especially in character design, we so often see the range of female body shapes being limited to boob size and “the one that wears glasses.”
Be a little more creative, creators. Look at the women in the world around you, instead of the very narrow perception of women the media presents you with, or the one body type you have been taught is “sexually appealing.” Women can be passionate scientists and be chubby and still be hot.
sorry, nope! i can’t quite tell how big the feet and beak are because of the perspective but that’s either a black chicken chick
or a baby virginia rail,
which are very frequently passed off as a baby crow or baby raven in baby photosets because baby corvids are hilariously fucked up looking
