Day 529 “Singing Like The Sun (GIF)” by Matt Chinworth (follow his tumblr TypeSWAMP where he creates a new design every single day)
My brother is writing some stuff over at Draw Distance. I’m helping him with the illustrations.

Singing like the sun. Singing like the moon and a thousand lights and stars and fire stars. Tried to keep them silent but I couldn’t keep the shouts and praise in. They just kept coming like the distant night - there’s no stopping it and you enjoy it and it’s forever your friend, the singing. It rolls over you like a big roller and flattens your mind and skull inside your head like a watermelon that reforms after the roller passes. The little singing stars put the pieces back together - the watermelon pieces, which are your head. No surprises here. Your head becomes a medium star like a large-scale onion. No suprises here. It starts singing too. It might grow up to be fierce like the old stars but it will mostly stay mild and glow like a dim light in an old mine shaft, an incandescent. It would kinda be a thin bright line like that. But little stars are best at stringing together little light string bits after they’ve fallen apart from the rolling sing-wave. They were made for it, by the the big stars. They birthed them out straight to the stitching field to patch up your stringy light-head. No suprises here. Let them come over you. It kinda hurts but it’s mostly for the better, the reforming.

Singing

I’m reblogging this because yesterday Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed the anti-gay bill I talked about in this comic into law.

This bill includes LIFE IMPRISONMENT for gay sex. It includes LIFE IMPRISONMENT for being in a gay marriage. The directors of any NGOs (including Sexual Minorities Uganda) found guilty of “promotion of homosexuality” face SEVEN YEARS IN JAIL.

This is the real stuff, people. Many of the folks I drew in this comic were just named directly by a tabloid newspaper and are fearing an imminent witch hunt.

A lot of the blame for this falls squarely on the shoulders of one man, Scott Lively, and his global campaign of homophobia. Please go read the full comic I did last month for the Center for Constitutional Rights that explains their legal case against him.

This is very important. Get informed by reading this great piece by Andy Warner.
