Afternoon Snack

Another week down, another week closer to the end of the Year of Our Discontent. We’ve prepared a light and fluffy snack for you to celebrate!

Here at POME, we 100% support and adore librarians. Especially the librarians in Melbourne, Australia who called every single one of their 8,000+ elderly patrons just to check in and say hi when the pandemic lockdown went into place.

In other surprisingly positive pandemic news, scientists are beginning to see encouraging signs of lasting immunity to COVID-19 for those who have been infected and recovered. Just… don’t tell your coronavirus-skeptical coworker.

We are proud to report that crones are trending upward yet again, thanks to POME fave Michi’s Baba Yaga-themed enamel pin Kickstarter! Consider throwing some money at it to wear rep your crone-unity (heh… hehe…) proudly.

Speaking of pride, can we just take a moment to appreciate and send loving vibes to post-Star Wars John Boyega, a fresh breeze personified?

If you haven’t seen it yet, Michael DeForge’s “12 (New) Steps On The Road to Design Hell” is an absolute must-read for anyone in the business of selling illustrations. (And wonderfully illustrated, of course.)

POME fave Shing Yin Khor has a beautiful comic up in Catapult, spreading the gospel of the shower peach. Click through for an invigorating read, and perhaps a small cry.

We’re gonna close out on a high note this week. Stay powerful, crones!
