Little self promotion here.

If you want to know when I get published with my YA sci-fi about superheroes or my adult fantasy about Wheel of Time trope subversion, here is my newsletter.

I won't be updating this until I'm published, so no worries about spam!

In other news, I had a request to revive a pattern from 2003, so THE WACKY CHICKENS WILL RETURN

I boogered up the first draft tonight but I'm doing a smaller version for the tutorial images. These ones were 20-21" tall; I'm doing a 1/3-scale one. (Those are full sheets of mat board as backdrop because their feet matched the wood floor too well; clearly those weren't big enough.)

fediblock, nazi enabler version 

I wish everyone the best. Things are crappy right now and (nearly) everything sucks, but know that we will get through this together.

So... Another octopus. I will turn to fluffier animals soon. This postcard too will go to a friend. If anyone feels like a postcard would cheer them up, contact me.

Stay safe!

alright, guess what time it is. it's SCIENCE TIME

I've recently come across this wonderful worldbuilding tool called Tectonics.js. It simulates tectonic movement over millions of years... and allows you to look at climate and terrain height, and it all is animated at various geological speeds up to a million years per second. Smash together a couple of continents and then break them apart again and you're basically guaranteed to end up with something more interesting than whatever Earthclone you were going to be using in your next novel or campaign. Granted, it'll need a bit of touching up with regards to the coasts, but the climate, mountains, and wind patterns are already dealt with!

This is a really fun way of watching how plates interact on a sphere, and is to my knowledge, the only tectonic simulation out there for general recreational use besides GPlates.

Hey Folks, probably the last post I'll make for this.

Just want to let you all know that the enby mask is finally available!

If you still need masks, please consider these!

I will be looking into getting stock on hand once the pandemic passes for sale at cons and such <3

"I love roses," the mermaid sighed, "I wish I had some."

"Why not just sing for roses to be brought to you?" asked her sea serpent companion.

"To what end? They would wither within days."
The mermaid sighed again and dove below, no longer wanting to think on the matter.

The serpent pondered, then sought a harpy to carry a message to a dragon.

The dragon considered the message and laid out terms, which the harpy passed back.

Anyone ever had to trim a vinyl record before? I got a record yesterday that has a lip around one half of it that gets stuck on stuff on the turntable, and as much as I'd like to just get it replaced, I could also just... cut the lip off myself?

Why you shouldn't nut in space 

Fun sword fact: all the swords you see in "serious" (tone-wise) fantasy like Game of Thrones are much more of a modern aesthetic than a medieval one. Medieval aesthetic would be considered downright gaudy by today's standards.

Dyes were expensive and therefore a sign of wealth, so no nobleman would be caught dead with an undecorated black scabbard or an unengraved, un-inlayed blade as long as he could afford to dye his scabbard bright colors and inlay gold or silver into his sword. The image is an example of what might be more typical for a reasonably wealthy nobleman around the time of the Battle of Agincourt.

COVID-19, what to pin your hopes on and the fallbacks 

for more on the subject, I (once again) recommend The Alt-Right Playbook -- specifically, the video The Card Says Moops, about internet nihilists (and how they aren't really nihilists) and bad-faith arguments: youtube.com/watch?v=xMabpBvtXr

Eventually I'll get down to the pink ruffled elastics though.

(My sister likes pink so that's my typical go-to color but I sent her a nice tasteful leaf print, the one from the forest dragon wings, because she might need to go into her office and Look Professional.)
