Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.

Beautiful gif art. <3

I don’t know how to do this. I wish I did!

Just got my glossy new copies of Odyssey with my Peregrine Falcon doodle. Places I’ve seen Peregrine Falcons: 

a. Empire State Building

b. Throgs Neck Bridge

c. I-84 in Connecticut 

Where have you seen them? 

This explains so much. 

Thanks to the Nerdist for this!

YA Books About Transgender Characters

There haven’t been a lot of young adult books published about transgender characters. This list is not meant to be a “best of” list — it is simply a list of the titles that we are aware of, and we are sure there are more we aren’t aware of. This list is limited to titles published specifically for a young adult audience, which means titles published for adults that teens might still enjoy aren’t included.

Do you have a favorite YA book about a transgender character? Please tell us why you loved it!

I want to give special shout-outs to Luna and Parrotfish, two of my favorite YA novels.

I’d also add that Every Day by David Levithan is, in a way, a really good book about a non-binary character. Part of what makes A and Rhiannon’s love story so unique and compelling is that it exists outside of binary constructions of gender and sex identity.

Thanks to John for posting this!
