Hi! I'm F. Loki, I'm currently bogged down by academic work but have slowly been doing more and more art, and am looking forward to posting some when I can.
I mostly do traditional sketching and slowly experiment with materials. I've recently picked up digital painting after finding out my old bamboo still has legacy support + that krita is a joy of a program.
I also exist at @f_loki, and on twitter at @firstname.lastname@example.org, though I came here to be artsier and less academic.

student debt Show more
As someone who accumulated (and continues to accumulate) student debt after the libdems were the libdems I laugh in dispair whenever I count up how much there is and brace myself for a future where to tories realise they can just put legistlature together to send debt collectors to everyone instead of keeping the "don't have to pay after 30 years" thing.

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.
"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"
(Participation is, of course, optional)
Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @email@example.com and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
