Vivek Shraya and Elisha Lim are about to embark on a book tour across the US. Check them out, don’t miss it, best time ever, etc!!!!!
Vivek Shraya will read and sing from his new novel She of The Mountains, which weaves a passionate, contemporary love story between a man and his body, with a re-imagining of Hindu mythology. Both narratives explore the complexities of embodiment and the damaging effects that policing gender and sexuality can have on the human heart.

Elisha Lim will read from their new graphic novel 100 crushes—an infatuated journey through four continents of queer communities. Lim’s arresting portraits are accompanied by heartfelt anecdotes about butches, sissies, catholic convent girls, jealously, suits and ties, and love. Lim will also screen a selection of short animations, including the award-winning queers who pray.

It’s Mental Health Week and it’s World Mental Health day on the 10th October so I’m re-posting Relative from my recent series Coconut Legacy. This work is about resisting mental health pathology - the space suit shows a dissociation chart and other psychiatric imagery, with the helmet glass being cracked by ancestor-chico meteorites. #worldmentalhealthday #mentalhealth #chicos #astronaut #selfportrait #textaqueen #workonpaper #markers #psychiatry #space #spacesuit #spacey #galaxy #infinity #ancestors #zerogravity #gravity #milkyway #meteor #meteorite

A photo of my aesthetically presentable marker library in Australia, I have a smaller array in the US. Arranged as close to rainbow gradient as possible and separated in snaplocks. My dad would be proud. Mostly #tombow #fabercastellpittpens and #zigscrollandbrush A few #marvyleplume and rarely used #Pantone plus some #elmerspainters that I used for outlines until recent switch to #copicmultiliner  (at Laughing Waters)
