Xylocopa violacea readily identified by its color. Carpenters bees are about 25 mm, glossy black all over, with sparse black hairs. Taken at Le Perreux sur Marne, Ile-de-France, France.
I’ve been planning on publishing a children’s book with a friend of mine who illustrates too and is also a pretty decent author.
We want it to be a story about two young witches and I dig this so hard I can’t wait to start sketching some character designs.
Now here’s the problem because I don’t really want to make both of them skinny and white and cliché, but I really don’t know how pretentious it’s gonna look if I make one, say, short, chubby and Asian and the other one idk lanky, ginger and tall with glasses. Those are my ideas so far and I actually like them both because I don’t want to come up with two generic looking witch babies.
NOW I don’t know if that’s okay and that’s tumblr’s fault because you guys have been making me so terribly insecure because of literally everything white people (me) do so if I a) make one of them POC/non-white you’re gonna give me shit and if I b) make both POC/non-white, someone’s gonna give me shit because I “exploit other people’s culture” and ~need to stay inside of my culture~ and if I c) make both of them white I’m gonna get shit for sure as well.
I really want to make a book that is NOT about a skinny white girl as the main protagonist because in Germany there are TONS of young girls that deserve and need representation in all kinds of media, but if I work with that in mind I’m gonna get shit for being a pseudo social justice warrior and speakin gin behalf of a culture that isn’t my own.
Plus, since we have so many Islamic girls here I’d also want to include one in our story BUT I literally have no idea if that’s an okay to do, I’m insecure as hell about that and don’t know if Islamic people here would find that okay so I have NO clue what to do now.
