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 I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.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 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.

Western culture makes it hard to change your name. But picking a name is an important part of defining who you are.

So, prospective parents, give your kids Powerful Names. Names with a lot of nicknames to choose from, names with a dozen middle parts for them to try on as they grow.

Shit, I put a pot on to boil and left it. Pretty sure it wasn’t a non-stick pot at least.

So it turns out that making everyone in the Emerald City wear green glasses was actually a pretty good idea on the part of the Wizard of Oz.

“Just put a Mardi Gras hat on Mr. Lurch, It’ll be fine.”

I really gotta do the same for Mr. Skellington outside our place.

Pushed commissions forwards, one’s reached Probably Final stage. Drafted a post for Patreon about how I seem to be taking a brief vacation from the comic with these, with discounted patron prices. Gotta post that once I’m by internet again.

Tonight’s discovery: doing an image search for “worst unicorn food” is scary. Don’t do it.

AssCreed Odyessy: a mission chain ends with a quest to just stand there while two characters Orate at each other for several minutes of stilted dialogue

Me: runs around the one who has a staff that is the Mcguffin, bumping into him, saying “stick! Stick! Gimme stick!”

And if not for that I probably would have chosen the peaceful option to persuade him to give up the staff instead of taking the combat option. Maybe you end up fighting him after all, who knows.

Memo to sober me: put some energy into trying to make a NOLA drink and draw happen.

Why does Wacom keep wanting to have incredibly confusing names. First they renamed the beginner line from “Graphire” to “Intuos” and renamed the pro line from “Intuos” to “Intuos Pro” and now they have a small screen tablet called the “Wacom One” that just joined a beginner non-screen tablet called “The One By Wacom”. There are gonna be so many returns on accidental purchases of The One By Wacom.

If I did the "Linkedin/Facebook/Instagram/Tinder" image meme that's going around today, three out of the four images would be screengrabs of the appropriate site saying "user not found". And the fourth would probably be just the tip of my tail wish some motion lines suggesting I was leaving.

Man today feels like it is gonna be a weird day.

I just described my commissions as being open "slightly more often than Brigadoon intersects with this world" and now I kinda want to redo my commission info image as a riff on one of the posters for that movie.

Somehow, I feel like my mother is to blame.

It is always a good feeling when email replies to commission WIPs have phrases like "*incoherent screaming*" or "holy shit YES".

Jeff Vandermeer’s “Dead Astronauts” is quite a piece of writing.

Some drawings you gotta start painting from the face. Some drawings you gotta start painting from the ass.

Today's commission is definitely one where I gotta start by loving the heck out of this ass.

A thought I keep on having as I move though New Orleans is that this place is not so much a city as it is a process. This is true to some degree of anywhere, but when the swampy ground is constantly sinking beneath your feet, creating majestic potholes, when plants are rapidly growing up any surface they can cling to, when pumps have to run every time it rains to keep the bowl of the city from filling, it’s a lot ...
