Redoing my lol

I'm LJ! I also go by Null. I'm a art-maker-fellow lurking around lower Appalachia. I mostly draw creaturefolk and the worlds they live in. I also like zines, tattoos, warm greens, and snails.

You can look-a-roo at my work on my site tombofnull.art or by checking the media tap on my profile. :D

happiness is stored in the song played on repeat for the umpteenth time.

I very big much love that I can link to my wonky website in a post and not worry about an algorithm sending it to the shadowrealm lol

Since clothes hunting is on the horizon for me again: I think I'd find techwear a bit more appealing if there where more natural fibers [sort of goes against the ethos of that style a bit, I know] and if I could find some examples of pieces when they are aged and a little weathered. Personally I try to opt for styles that "grime up good" so I can max out the life of a piece and it still visually "work". Sorta concerned that the sleak look of many techwear pieces won't hold up in that regard.

If your gold paints or inks look sort of lifeless color-wise, add a little red or put down a red base layer. Imo it adds a warmth that looks so much nicer than the sort of weird cold yellow-ish look some gold metallic inks/paints have.

seems fair

Holy moly. This is gonna be a time sink of massive dimensions. Much of the Boston Public Library's vinyl collection digitized on archive.org

Lots of stuff you know and lots more you don't.

Something that I do for each of my digital dwellings is set a max number of folks following me on each platform, which sounds weird to some folks when I bring it up. [Everyone wants to be "famous" online right?]
I do this mostly to avoid ending up in that weird situation where folks over-elevate you as someone ""important"" when really you're just a person. Plus having that many eyes distracts me from making stuff I care about.
For this place, I'll probably halt new followers at around 1k?

Oooooooh so THATS why my phone kept going off LOL
Hello everyone! :D

Thinking aloud about TikTok 

--TikTok feels like its on turbo?

I also really dislike how I had to make the process of making my stuff into a marketable spectacle in of itself, bit that's a whole other thing.

This is also an incomplete thought, but its been on the mind little as other trends online have me figuring out how to adapt without loosing my mind in the process lol

Thinking aloud about TikTok 

I've been trying to articulate what it is about that app that really puts me off [aside from how much of a attention sink it is], and I think it can be boiled down to "this is an advertising space disguised as a social space", and to some degree I think that shows through in the way, at least from what I've seen, some of the even "regular" people assemble their videos and portray themselves there. Granted, Instagram's got the same characteristic imo, but--
