This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

Attention Cosplayers! Have I (Elemental Photography) taken your photo? Well, I need your help!

I promise, I’m not asking for a kidney. XD What I’m trying to do is put together a book for myself, for cons and speaking engagements as well as for my own memories. I’ve taken a LOT of photos over the years! And while I have plenty of personal favourites on my walls and in albums, what I’m interested in, this time, is your favourite photos. Because there can be a really huge difference between what I love as a photographer, and what you love as a cosplayer/model.

So, if you have a moment, and I’ve shot you over the years, please link me your fave pic. Either reblog here, submit to my tumblr, or I have a google form set up for it right here!

Please signal boost if you can!
