Today I was out walking
when I had a brief flash
and saw the people I was passing
as collections of cells gathered together into muscles
pulling against the bones that they grew for some cells to live inside
slithering against each other like a bucket of live eels

And it was kind of beautiful.

Is it time again? Sorta seems to be. I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.

Hi, I'm Peggy, and I run dragon.style. If "maintaining a Patreon to pay the hosting, putting off updating it for a year, and occasionally opening the place up for new users" qualifies as "running" it.

I am a trans lady who spends most of her time drawing complicated sci-fi comics and sort of earning a living doing that via Patreon.

Adobe Illustrator has been my main medium since 2000, it's a pretty unusual choice but it works for me.

I used to do burlesque, then pole dance, as a hobby and a way to stay fit. I miss it and should find something similar again.

You may know me from elsewhere as Egypt Urnash.

I played Persona 5 for a while tonight and I think it may be time to put it down for another several months again. I started the Burger Man's Space Colony Palace and I am just feeling tired of these systems. Spending a couple hours clicking X to advance through the barely-interactive Hawaii trip probably didn't help my mood towards the game either.

so this diagram explaining different kinds of public nudity got posted to a chat I am in and now this has lead to me sitting here thinking "what if Horny Variant Peganthyrus was being an art model" and I am remembering the ways models would act in the many figure drawing sessions I've attended over my life and just casually knocking out some little doodles with absolutely no reference that would make the me who was taking all those figure drawing sessions green with envy.

And I guess really the right sentiment is to say thank you to Past Me for investing all those hours in staring at naked people with utter dispassion, and thinking hard about how to draw them despite repeatedly messing it up. Thanks, Past Me.

Holy crap the responses this repair shop has to their bad reviews sure are amazing. They are also definitely me keep looking. yelp.to/qTKq/3oBggWdS99

3pm and I finally got my ass out of the house to do laundry. It was a lot easier when I could sit at the laundromat without worrying about a pandemic and a laptop battery that held more than a half hour’s charge.

I woke up this morning to news that the fucking Hard Rock Disaster is *on fire* and I just wanna go back to sleep for a fucking year.

It is a small fire and it seems to be under control so I'm not worrying about worst-case scenarios but, ugh.

Today I grabbed some small post-its and it is really nice to once more have small bits of brightly-colored paper on which to dump small bits of thoughts that I want to deal with later.

I am pretty sure I have a bunch of these that I shipped down from Seattle along with everything else but they are in a box. Somewhere. These new ones are in a cubby of my desk and I know where they are.

Memo to self: CW op art.

Memo to self: consider ending Twitter arguments by simply posting hurty op art exercises. It's the Internet equivalent of playing a loud tone into the phone, then hanging up.

Shower thought:

There may come a time in every magical adept's life where they decide to feed someone to some entity.

Before studying a course, do some research on its author, and ask yourself these questions: who do you think they'd feed, and who would they feed them with?

Drat, the post in the Illustrator subreddit with someone asking for help applying a roughened texture to the blue stripe in a Blue Lives Matter flag seems to have vanished. I can't go in and say "I think the best choice here is for you to start fiddling with the gradient mesh tool".

(Guess which tool I think is *the* most fiddly, time-wasting tool in the entire program?)

This feels like the kind of morning where getting out of bed should be accompanied by the sample from Altered Beast of someone shouting WISE FWOM YOUW GWABE.

Okay I had no energy for the YCH today but I just spent 2.5h roughing out a quick animatic that explains the rules of Dr. Pinkerton's evil music show and that's pretty good for the day.
