Animal communities I belong to or follow
Middle East Technical University, Animal Friends Community
This is a non-profit charity operated by students to help all the campus animals from dogs to hedgehogs. All the members work so hard all year round to feed the kids and make sure that they are happy and healthy. And I make designs for this student community!
August Lamm is an illustrator I discovered on Instagram. The details of crosshatching and the distortions never fail to impress me.
The Passion by Jeanette Winterson
Set during the Napoleonic Wars, Henri the French soldier meets Villanelle, the web-footed Venetian woman. Henri being a man with “feminine” interests and Villanelle with her webbed-feet, a quality solely of Venetian boatmen, both are deemed as misfits. Their stories intertwine while the reader spirals around fantasy and reality. Winterson makes us question the boundaries of real and fiction, gender performativity and the reliability of historical documentations.
“I’m telling you stories, trust me.” -Henri
