Melodie Miu is a fangirl, writer, and artist who sometimes updates this blog. She is mostly interested in social justice, intersectionality, films, comic books, YA novels, K-pop, ASOIAF, Shondaland, and being complimented.
This blog has become a smorgasbord of artistic experiments I’m trying out, which includes a ton of strange drawings of myself.
FYI: Please don’t use any of my illustrations or photos without my permission, except for the K-TOWN and ROLL MODELS memes. I don’t often add watermarks because they make images look terrible. So I’m counting on you, random Internet lurker, to not be an enormous jerk.

A: Is…is this really necessary? We as a society have already decided to hate arts and humanities, much less beach caricaturists. Can’t I just pursue something that gives my life meaning? And might give others meaning? Do you have any idea how much you shouldn’t trust me as a doctor or engineer? I would endanger everyone just to make a point that I’m terrible at it. Lemme have this one. Lemme make pretty art and write stories about people making out and fighting crime. It could save your life.
Q2: What do your parents think of all this?
A: I think they’re fine with it? I mean, they have a little trouble explaining to people what exactly I’d studied but I think they’ve known since I was really young that I wasn’t cut out for the life of a lawyer. Huh. Isn’t it funny that women of color get this kind of question all the—
Q1: Okay, I’m back.
A: OMFG I told you to leave.
Q1: But someone needs to constantly make you feel bad about your life choices! How are you going to make money? Are you planning to work as a secretary? Do you like being poor?
