Can Comforting Illusions Go Too Far?

Reading Time: 2 minutes Blinky & Sal: cartoons for when no one is looking. This was actually the first official appearance of Todd Almighty (back in 2014). And Blinky wasn’t nearly as cute back then.

Totally Reinvent Yourself

Reading Time: < 1 minute Blinky & Sal: cartoons of existential dread… Who were you 10 years ago? Who are you now? Who will you be in 10 years time?
