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 I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.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 am reading a Cthulhu Mythos book (Lumley’s “The Burrowers Beneath”) and I am suddenly struck by the knowledge that HPL would have been a total MAGA if he was alive today.

Cleaned up the desk some - there was a huge pile of mail I "should" deal with hanging around the tablet. Put some books back on the shelves, too.

I doubt this will last very long at all but it's nice to do now and then.

This rearrangement was definitely worth it. Oh yeah.

cw: cartoon titties 

I drew a super cute picture of this minor character and then had to cover it up with an important plot element and now I am debating rearranging the next page for the sole purpose of getting in a drawing of her looking flirtatiously at the protagonist. Comics!

Yay, I have managed to do daily exercise for four out of the past six days since deciding it’s time to rebuild that habit. As long as I’m doing it more often than not I’ll be happy with my performance.

I am reading Pratchett’s “Wintersmith” and am constantly amused by the way my brain keeps ignoring the wiry little blue man painted on the cover, and imagining the Feegles as Smurfs. Little googly eyes, floppy caps, high reedy voices, tiny tails and all. And also tiny little fearless Scottish clansmen, preternaturally strong and always ready to fight.

Honestly it feels like about even odds that this is exactly what Pterry intended.

Tonight I finally beat Malenia in Elden Ring!

Oh. No, no I didn’t. I just triggered her second form and her second health bar. And got immediately killed. And turned off the PS4.

And the January 6 commission got that giant pile of emails Alex Jones’ lawyers accidentally sent to the prosecution in his case, too. Hahahaah.

The FBI raided Trump’s mansion. The subhead on CNN’s front page right now says that “three sources tell CNN this was related to handling of classified documents that may have been brought to Mar-A-Lago” but this isn’t in the article for some reason. At least right now, it is a “breaking story that will be updated” so that may change.

WOOOO.

But when it works it's great; I drew this with no sketch in all of about 2-3 minutes.

giant cartoon titties, Illustrator process 

This only works for solid colored titties, sadly; if I turn the titty shape into a clipping mask to draw a color transition across it, then everything but the bottommost fill and stroke stops being rendered, and any effects on them are ignored as well. I really wish Adobe would fix that.

Today I got up and spent about an hour making a few Graphic Styles for quickly drawing giant titties that shade themselves after I draw a quick blobby shape. There's even a version that casts a shadow in the space below.

I won't be able to use these for every drawing in this comic, squish is gonna require more attention, but this is really gonna save a lot of time over what is looking like about 30 pages of inexorable breast expansion comedy.

This article acted as a nice, gentle reminder for me to take a look at how the Internet is currently sucking away my attention, and ask myself how I wanted to moderate this.

Turns out that iOS can put limits on both app use and website use. Sharply limiting Web Twitter should help keep me from getting lost in its endlessly-engagement-optimized scroll when I follow a link to a Good Tweet.

“Nope” is a pretty good movie. The first half is really oblique and hints at a lot of things that the second half does not necessarily use once it finally puts all its cards on the table and reveals exactly what sort of horror film it is. There are some GORGEOUS shots in that second half, too.

(All the trailers pointedly refrain from revealing what the film is about, so I am not going to go into that.)

I am now asking myself two questions about this horny comic I'm working on: 

1. How many pages can I get out of Twyla's struggle to get her slowly-expanding, ginormous titties through her door?
2. How many pages SHOULD I get out of this before it stops being funny?

I am currently about one and a half pages into this and she has one bahoolazooma through. I love drawing comics about horny people having horny problems.

Hello, Monterey. Everything that auto-runs when I reboot looks mostly the same. Nothing seems to have broken. That would be a success.

I should probably get the latest Wacom driver so I'm ready for an M2 machine soon. Or just order that medium Xencelabs tablet to replace the Wacom on my desk and only need one tablet driver again.

I wonder when we will, as an overall society, get to the point where the average young adult can be expected to have a device in their pocket that expands into a paperback-sized screen. I’m tired of all culture having to fit through an index-card-sized hole.

Oops. Installation got stalled because everything needed to close. But I have donuts!

Backed up, yay. Time to hit the "I agree that I scrolled to the bottom of the license agreement without reading it" button and start installing Monterey.

Also time to go out and get some donuts.

I did this because I was gonna apply a maintenance update to my computer and it said "you don't have enough disk space to do this". Now I've hit the wrong button in Software Update and it's downloading the latest Monterey (12.5) instead of Big Sur 11.6.8 and, well, okay, fine, I'm planning on getting a new computer soon and it's gonna come with Monterey anyway, may as well start shaking out the problems now.

Backup first, of course.
