#ALL THE FEELS THAT WE WILL BE RECEIVING
This Indian actress shut down a reporter for telling her to keep quiet about women’s rights.
I’m so honored to say that I drew today’s Google doodle of Maria Callas, the renowned opera singer!
I’m happy to share some of the process—the whole thing took place in these last couple weeks and was a lot like doing any other freelance illustration job, except it was totally unexpected and for a much bigger audience!!!
My art director was the super talented Sophia Foster-Dimino (also a Google doodler)—she also gathered feedback for me from the doodler crew & google employees. When you’re working with a big company, there’s a lot of people that have to vet the final product! Luckily it all went very smoothly.
When I was given this project I didn’t have A CLUE about opera, so I spent a whole day reading about Maria Callas, listening to her existing recordings, and watching the few live videos of her performances. She is amazing! Her voice extended beyond the regular range for female singers and she had an innate gift for interpretation—she could literally sing anything written for the female voice, and sing it better than anyone else. She also had a really interesting life—Underdog beginning! Personal struggles! High-profile scandal! Crazy weight-loss! Unusual voice!
I included more info about each step of my process in the image captions— read on if you like!
Thanks to all the google doodlers for letting me be an honorary doodler today, and thanks to everyone who’s said something encouraging or recognized my work, I’m incredibly humbled and grateful to you all!
Nice, but they’re still white, conventionally attractive, not visually trans* or disabled, neither of them have visable scarring, stretchmarks, etc, I mean, even on a basic body-positive note, neither of them have hair legs or armpits.
I’ve yet to see ONE graphic along these lines that actually include anything other than the chubby/skinny thing. Let’s see some fat, scarred and stretchmarked black trans women with prosthetic limbs or dwarfism or something, and hairy legs, maybe she’s got a shaped afro or something, natural black hair is looked down on by society.
Then I’ll get as excited as the rest of tumblr by these nicely drawn graphics.
YOU PEOPLE ARE NEVER HAPPY A RE YOU
IS THIS FUCKING BETTER??!?@»@?

Newsflash, Everyone: Tom Daley Isn’t Gay
He’s bisexual. And yes, it does make a big difference.
Tom explicitly says in the video that he still “fancies girls,” and he never uses the word “gay,” “homosexual,” or any other synonymous word to describe his sexuality.
The fact that media outlets immediately jump to the conclusion that he’s gay not only contributes to the issue of bisexual erasure, it also misrepresents what Tom Daley said, which was exactly what he wanted to avoid by making the YouTube video in the first place.
So get your facts straight everyone. Tom made an incredibly courageous decision in coming out and he deserves our support and respect.
