You asked to see some Ghibli-ish photos, so here we go :blobartist:

They were taken around my hometown, near the city that inspired Howl's Moving Castle. I edited them with #Lightroom.

I can share some tips to achieve this "anime vibes". Just let me know if you're interested!

🇨🇵 Des fans de #Ghibli par ici ? J'ai édité ces photos pour ressembler à des frames d'anime. J'espère que ça fait à peu près illusion (au moins de loin :blobcatpeek:) !

I guess I should actually post something here...
I'm new on Mastodon, looking for places outside twitter.

My name is Luis and I'm an illustrator/ex concept artist/teacher from Portugal.

Starting with the stuff that has made me most popular online, fan art. Of NES Zelda in this case.

Here’s an idea: let’s call people “people” on the fediverse instead of “users” whenever we can.

Compare:

“There are 42 users on this instance.”

vs

“There are 42 people on this instance.”

Which acknowledges our humanity more?

Language matters. We don’t need to perpetuate mainstream technology’s othering/colonial framing of “us” – designers/developers/other “clever folks” – and “them” – the users (usually one step removed from “dumb user” and usually the ones who get used).

Hey folks working on #Fediverse projects like #Mastodon, #PixelFed, #WriteAs: I'm a writer who's spent 20 years writing blog posts, documentation, product copy, social media, and a little UX writing for a variety of orgs large and small.

Recent work involves the Bear notes app, previously: 1Password.

I can't contribute as a dev, but I can definitely help write, edit, or just polish your user-facing comms.

Can anyone help get this in front of relevant folks? Or point out how I can reach them?

I made an image for a future blog post explaining the Fediverse.

Can you trap a galaxy in a crystal ball? I tried! Back in 2018 I took this image of the Milky Way through a crystal ball from ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.

These are some stylized landscapes I made. They all feature a waterfall.

Hello, scholar social! Here's my #introduction

I'm here from the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology dept at the University of Toronto and the Palaeobiology dept at the Royal Ontario Museum.

I'm a PhD Candidate studying growth and life history in extant and extinct cats, using both observational data (collected by others) and data from the growth record preserved in bone (collected by me)! See below for what a fossil Smilodon bone looks like under the microscope 👀

Hello Mastodon art people! I’m Julia, an illustrator and naturalist from Germany. I’ve quit all social media a few years ago because addictive algorithms, ads, infinite scrolling and tracking surveillance were killing my creativity.
Mastodon is likely the last social media experiment I’ll try. Here are some birds for you, because although I’ve left Twitter, I love drawing birds.
