can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal

Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode? 

It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.

Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.

Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.

Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.

Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.

The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.

The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.

copsandducks asked: Hey! I saw this floating around in a pic set and wanted to check that you allowed them to use your art!! sheinside(.)com /Black-Contrast-Long-Sleeve-Cat-Print-T-Shirt-p-149378-cat-1738(.)html

Hi folks, I’d like y’all to know that I did NOT give Sheinside.com permission to use my artwork*. I’ll concede that it does look pretty good on that baseball shirt but, still… please don’t buy it.

In fact, I’d recommend that you don’t buy anything from sheinside, as their clothing ‘designs’ are all stolen from other brands and artists. They are cheaply made, bad quality items from China. We also don’t know how ethically sound they are as a company (ie. how do they treat their workers?)

Again, please do not buy from Sheinside.com. 
If you’d like one of my designs on a shirt, go to Society 6,
or Urban Outfitters (for Pugs Not Drugs).

Thanks.
PS. for those who are asking… Yes, it’s copyrighted but it is extremely difficult to assert copyright laws on products from China.

Hey look! This comic is both positive AND legible. Wowzers!!!

I’m sorry I used the word “wowzers.” :(

One of my characters was a hopeless romantic and moved in with a girl because he thought he had a chance with her. I guess this comic was supposed to be where she finally sets him straight and he sort of gets over his “nice-guy-isms.”

I’m not quite sure if I accomplished that but I love these pages either way. They’re obviously super rough but I love how there were designed in the end.

Also my notes to my self are hilarious to me.

More old-ass, dumb-ass sketches.

Most of these are comics. Illegible comics!

Another old-ass school project. 

This one is based on a story called professor Panini (the link goes straight to an audio file of someone reading the story).

Fun fact: the professor was based on Destructoid’s Jonathan Holmes. Not quite his likeness so much but I tried ^^;

I did post this before because I was self conscious in that I thought it was too much of a cry for help. Cry for help or not I can’t help but notice how true this seems to remain :/ 
Especially if you replace school with work that is.

I made this for a school project a long time ago. 

It’s based on an Edgar Allan Poe story. I changed the ending a bit though…

In continuity these are Images 7-12 of the series.
