I mostly post art here, but in my professional life, I helped found a technology cooperative with some amazing and talented people.

We did a little post about the process of becoming a legally recognized worker-owned co-op in New York. If you've ever been curious about alternative ways of organizing your business, give it a read!

Daily reminder for you all to *always* carry around a marker pen with you so when you see stuff like anti-COVID/Nazi/right-wing BS in public, you can graffiti over it

It's hard to get praised for work I've done but have no opportunities to continue to do it in a sustainable way

I am so desperate to just work somewhere without a shitty abusive man, it feels impossible

I'm worried I might be entering my new villain era

COVID & conferences 

this is a subtoot about someone complaining about being sick while also talking about being at an in-person conference that starts in a few days

Tired of being burned out, switching back to CRTs to get burned in

These burnout waves are arriving more and more frequently

Obsessed with these ceramic cell phones I got from this artist via etsy, can't wait to hang them up etsy.com/listing/1168395021/ha
