Andrew Putter: Native Work (Capetown, South Africa)
This new installation comprises 21 black-and-white photographs of contemporary black Capetonians….
I find every one of these subjects compellingly beautiful.

Went crazy in a stationary store last night. I guess even after high school, I can’t be trusted to step inside one unsupervised! #loot #stationary #taiwan #cute #crafts

Once I had a dream that I was dying, so Tom Hiddleston took me to his derelict apartment and turned me into a vampire so that I would “live”, except I didn’t want to be a vampire, so I ran away, but Tom followed me and killed anyone that I told about my death, so in the end I had to give up and live with him for all of eternity.
Full disclosure, I’d been watching the Only Lovers Left Alive trailer a few days before
So how do you think you've changed since high school?
Well I became aware of oppressive power structures and how we are complicit in them and now seek to dismantle them.
I also think I got hotter.

Here is “Knot”, a short comic I drew to sell at Mocca and TCAF this year. The printed version is going to be SO PRETTY. I’m in love with the cover (which I will post later).
I just wanted to do something fairy-tale-like that talked about doubts and frustrations and how to deal with them. I’m really happy with how colorful and adorable the story turned out to be.
If you enjoyed “Knot”, please consider reblogging it and/or checking out my ongoing webcomic Namesake! HUGS TO ALL OF YOU!

I’m considering developing my own trend diet, after inadvertently losing about 1kg weight while vacationing in South Africa, it’ll probably go something like this:
Breakfast: Greek yogurt with blueberries and/or muesli, buttered rye toast (within reason)
Lunch: eat a healthy portion of delicious salad, then fill the rest of your stomach with whatever you want.
Dinner: same as lunch
In between, drink plenty of sparkling water, because it sparkles. Who doesn’t like sparkles? Liars, that’s who.
"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.
