Making it up as I go along.

"The Lauren Bacall obits I’ve seen take only a fleeting glance at her politics. She had the guts and stamina of a classic New York-born Jewish left-liberal… During the 1950s blacklist purges, aimed more at Jews and liberals than at “reds,” when so many in Hollywood ran for cover, Betty Joan Perske Weinstein-Bacal pushed her new husband Humphrey Bogart into establishing the Committee for the First Amendment to damn the blacklist and protect its victims. CFA was a cross-section of the plucky, upstanding Hollywood left: Danny Kaye, John Huston, Bette Davis, Frank Sinatra, Katharine Hepburn, etc.

"Bacall, a mere ingénue just starting out, risked her virgin career to stick her neck out, as did Bogart who wanted to vote Republican until his new Jewish wife corralled him otherwise…"

Bacall and Bogart’s stand against McCarthyism should never be forgotten. Bogie could have ridden out the backlash if it had all gone really badly, he was a big enough star, but Bacall almost certainly wouldn’t have had, and yet they still stood up for what they believed in. We tend to think of the stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood as strangely a-political beasts, but you only have to look at Bacall or Bette Davis or Marilyn Monroe (who was incredibly anti-racist in an era where that was still not the done thing for the elite) to see that under the glamour and the sparkle there were people with an incredible amount of integrity and bravery to stand up for their beliefs and to speak for others that might not be heard otherwise.

A cursory glance at the Tumblr of the guy who posted that Deadsht/Catman drawing of mine cropped to remove my signature shows that pretty much every single one of his posts is the same thing. Uncredited drawings with the artists signature clumsily cropped off for no reason other than to deny credit where credit is due. What a charmer.

I’m feeling fairly well in advance on my work/commissions today so might give myself the night off and draw some more Marvel Heroes in Heels (yes, I’ll have a night off from drawing by drawing. What of it?). 

So any requests for characters? Any and all suggestions welcomed, but no promise I won’t ignore you all completely. :D Hawkeye or Loki (maybe a bit too easy for both of those two)? Marvel Boy? Beast? Tony Stark in a French Maid Outfit?

Really should credit the artist - Bevis Musson

Seriously, what possesses you badly crop the bottom of the drawing so that you can remove my signature? I’m quite happy to have my art shared, but not happy if people take my name off for no reason other than because they don’t want to give credit where credit is due.
