an open letter to the male population of the universe

If you were equally kind, chivalrous, and generally at your best to girls who are more comfortable with keeping the entirety of their chests under some layer of fabric, the world would be so much pleasant.

(letter variation also applicable to legs, inner thighs, butt cracks, and bellies)

The more the merrier!

Here is a blog of compiled art efforts of local artists who are currently holding art sales and fund drives to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda. There are individual artists offering their artworks or services, org efforts, call for artworks to be sold online, upcoming events.

Do let me know if you are interested in having your art efforts posted. The easiest way is to do so is to post it first on your personal page (Facebook or blog or website), then send me a link of the existing post. You can send me a private message via Ask, or email me (hello@francesalvarez.com). I am doing the least complicated way of posting, which is basically copying the original posts (image and text) of the artists and putting them on the blog.

Disclaimer: I just compile existing posts and calls for art. I tag posts with their respective media, but I don’t curate the posts. However, if the links contain materials which are extremely indiscreet, I reserve the right to not post them on the site. Art is art is art, and I’m no curator, but as the creator of the site it’s still my responsibility to keep things as dignified as possible, especially with the cause we are all contributing to. 

Thank you so much to those who have sent in their posts! Group hug!

MOST IMPORTANTLY: Spread the word! Do encourage your friends and family to view the site and do some early Christmas shopping there!

Migratory bird sighting in our subdivision today! How interesting and exciting and fascinating. I wonder what they like about our corner of the city / world? 

Here is an attempt to draw one of the birds I saw. Although…I’m sure it doesn’t exactly look like this because I only got to see it for a few seconds haha. It had a long, sharp beak and spotty red feathers on its chest. At first I thought it was a quail, but it was taller and had longer legs. I think it might be a bittern!

EDIT, 10:24 PM.
Ok so I got some help from my ever-nature loving friend Iori and she said the bird I saw might be a tikling ​or a buff-banded rail, which aren’t migratory! They really do live ‘round these parts, but I’ve never seen any before even though I pass by vacant lots a lot. Apparently, they’re shy birds. : ) I’ve seen other strange-looking birds but never long enough to remember anything distinct about them, until this afternoon, because the bird was standing so near the sidewalk haha. 

Incidentally, there is a place called Tikling near here, which explains, well, the tikling sighting haha. The term tikling is Visayan for heron or crane, though, so they might be more populous there. Still, I feel kind of ignorant for not having seen a tikling before, when I’ve lived here for more than 10 years haha! And we’ve been introduced to the dance (as in Tinikling) as early as what, grade 1?! Haha. I am enlightened! 

​As far as my drawing is concerned, I missed the white stripe near its eye, and the spots on its chest are really white bands in real life. :D I learned something today!
