A Whale Of A Tale

Trying out mixing watercolor with normal ink drawings. Also, I just got Manga Studio not too long ago, so I thought that since I was in an experimental mood, I’d try out some of what I’m learning there, too. The voice bubble tool is too cool! I can’t wait to learn more with this program! :D

I already liked Old Economy Steve. So, it was only natural I’d like the Scumbag Baby Boomer meme as well.

I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry.

the truth, it burns

Meet the faces of the “I’m Sorry” campaign, a group of Christians who go to Chicago’s pride celebrations every year to apologize for their past hateful actions against LGBT people. The group started in 2010 and has since moved to other cities across the world. This is what love looks like. (via the Advocate

Ok, so I did this “selfie” because for the longest time I hated the way I look. I was very self conscious of my body because of my lack of a “tone” look. I sat movies, read comic books, and played video games, where the male protagonist never had a single layer of fatty on them. I was in wrestling, and I also did crossfit to change it but the “tone” look never came, even with dieting. I have fat on my chest that make it look liked boobs and I was even made fun of for having them. It sucked, but now for the longest time I’ve been learning to accept myself. I may not look like an avenger or even Ryan Gosling but goddammit am I proud of myself! I wouldn’t want to look like anyone but myself. I look in the mirror and tell myself “I love you” which was the hardest thing for more than 20 years. I know too there’s others who have it worse than me and I say to you gentlemen, accept yourself. I know it’s cliche but you don’t need the best body to have everything because even then people feel empty. You need to have the confidence in yourself to feel you have everything. I also hope more guys do this to promote body image, because everyone needs a little help in their life.

Thank you for being brave enough to do this. I wouldn’t have done it if you hadn’t, and it feels great. :) (btw, you’re one good-looking guy!)

(I’m just copying something that my friend, jimmy96, did first because I really need to do this for myself. Bless you, Jimmy, for being the first one to do something so brave. You are one handsome dude!)
I have always hated how I looked. I have been overweight for as long as I can remember. To make matters worse, my actual weight is even heavier than I look, and that has always felt like a dirty secret I’ve needed to keep from the world in hopes that I wouldn’t be made fun of even more… I too have gotten remarks and have been made fun of for having “boobs” since the sixth grade, and it’s something that haunts me to this day. I gained even more weight in the past few years due to stress because of a horrible job that I had to keep in order to help provide for my family. This devastated me as I had already thought very low of my image. I also have a birthmark on my stomach that I am embarrassed to show anyone, and I have more hair than I would like on my chest and stomach. All of this made it so I wouldn’t take off my shirt when swimming—I would blame it on being easily sunburned (which is still true, but it wasn’t the reason). My default face, or emotionless expression, tends to look angry or mean, and people judge me for not wanting friends or even wanting to have a conversation because of it. Some have even gotten angry at me as if I were challenging them. If that wasn’t bad enough, I also need to wear glasses (the climate here is too dry and windy to wear contacts), and I have red in my hair, features that are doomed to being teased for when you’re not a muscular, perfectly chiseled slab of manliness.
And that’s where I make my mistake: the fact is, I am manly, and my image has nothing to do with it. I am following my foolish dreams to make cartoons that I hope people will laugh with and learn to understand from in a world that is falling apart from the economy, social instability, and insanity. I work hard at something that may not come into fruition because of the simple fact that I love doing it. I don’t quit when I commit to something, and I am loyal to my friends. I love passionately and am not afraid to share my feelings. I support others who try. Regardless, “manliness” be damned—I like the way I am. I’m me for a reason, and no one else can do what I do, the way I do it, better than me. I’m tired of pulling my shirt away from my chest and stomach when I think no one is looking, hoping it’ll make me look even just a little thinner. So here I am, for everyone to see. So what if it looks I’ve been branded by Apple computers (lol)? 293 pounds—there, now you know my “dirty secret” and I have nothing left to hide. I am exercising now to drop some of the weight I’ve gained, but it should be for my health and not just my image. Inside and out, I feel like Po from Kung-Fu Panda. And that is awesome. I like that. I like the way I am. And I like me.
As Jimmy put it, I hope more men do this (and people in general) for themselves. It’s so hard to do, but even now, I feel liberated from my own low self-esteem and even feel a little pride. Believe in yourself before anyone else does. You guys are not alone, and I support you already. :) Cheers.

Who still hates hikingimage

And stairsimage

He uses his fatimage

To his advantageimage

And doesn’t let image

His tragic pastimage

Define himimage

This has been a Po appreciation post.

Out of all the animated characters out there, Po is the one I relate to and am inspired by the most.
