#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

YOU’RE NOT MILKING THE BEES FOR THE HONEY
YOU’RE NOT EVEN HURTING THEM
OR THEIR HOME
FUCK, PEOPLE…

HUMAN BEINGS EATING HONEY IS LITERALLY ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS PREVENTING BEE EXTINCTION YOU STUPID FUCKING FUCKTRUMPET!

Mostly vegan here; I say “mostly” because I will continue to eat as much honey as possible, as the honey industry is basically the only thing ensuring that there are enough bees to pollinate the produce I need for my hippy rabbit vegetarian lifestyle.

Please note, this piece was created for another person and is not for sale. While I do take commissions (see below), I do not remake pieces that I have already made. I am also not open for trades.  Thank you for your understanding.
About : Part of my trade with the lovely vonborowsky. This is one of her favorite Digimon. We decided to take it in a more naturalistic direction versus the cartoony look of the anime. I really enjoyed creating this; from beefing up the original design, to creating the dynamic pose, to airbrushing the soft colors.
Materials : Apoxie Sculpt, Sculpey Firm, Super Sculpey, Wire Armature, Cel Vinyl Paints, Wood Base
Dimensions : 9” Tall on a 4.75x7” Base
Time Taken : 21 hours
Want to learn how to sculpt like I do?  My book Fantasy Creatures In Clay will teach you everything you need to know! Check out all the information here!
My online class at Udemy is now enrolling. Head over there now to sign up.

Did you know that I like to play video games? Well, of course you did; who doesn’t like video games? They’re awesome. And you know which game is particularly awesome? The one I’ve got the most time in on Steam, that’s what:

image

Yep. Building stuff, fighting bosses, fishing, murdering innocent bunnies; Terraria is truly a game of endless fun and wonderment. But you know what else is great? Books. I’ve been reading novels since I was, like, seven. And would you like to know what that first novel was?

image

Can you see where this is going? If not, let me give you a hint:

image

Would you like to see how deep this rabbit hole - err, mouse hole, err… Whatever. The point is, are you curious to see how much of the wonderful world of Redwall I was able to fit into a 2D plane? If so, then read on. (Fair warning; there are lots of screenshots ahead)

Whoa, that’s just too awesome!

I spilled some milk, and I was turning back to wipe it up when this guy came crawling across the counter for a sip. I didn’t know spiders drink! lol

Since he has no pinkies, he’s holding a leg up to be a civilized little spider.

…Aaaand half an hour-ish later, Mr. Spider was found asleep in his milk. He was all relaxed-looking but sprang up and ran off when dad poked him awake. XD

That’s adorable

okay seriously in the extended pictures, WHAT THE FUCK IS THE FAMILY COMPLAINING ABOUT WITH THE PIZZA ON THE TABLE? LIKE SERIOUSLY WHAT

I like the last one “Oh my god, I’m on fire? Better jump out a fucking window then.

I’ve said it 100 times, I FUCKING LOVE INFOMERCIAL PEOPLE SO MUCH!!

I’ve always had to wonder how it is that humanity in the infomercial-verse hasn’t gone extinct. They can’t seem to perform even the simplest tasks without causing a disaster; they’d probably blow up the world trying to dig a hole or collectively forget how to breath or something.
