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 I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.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

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.

A thought kicking around my head lately:

Internet search (Google and its competitors) should be a publicly-funded service. Kinda like libraries are now. Run by the government. Free access to information for all, without the constant pressure to Make A Profit on the people building the search engine.

Perhaps social media should also be a publicly-funded good. I think we need some laws about interoperability, at the very least.

Perceived action point cost of sorting laundry so I can take it to the laundromat soon: about 6,000

Actual AP cost once I said "fuck it I'm gonna do it": maybe about 1?

LIFE PRO TIP: If you set Facebook's language to "Pirate", two things happen.

1. Facebook becomes generally harder to use.

2. Whenever Facebook manages to sneak its tendrils onto the rest of the web, you will notice.

Here is a nice copy of the Fleischer Studio's "Popeye The Sailor Vs Sinbad The Sailor" featurette.

It contains several examples of one of their craziest processes: miniature sets built on a turntable, with a frame to hold cels between foreground and background elements, which let them do camera movements with a subtle dimensionality unmatched by any fully-2D process.

I seem to have my list of Twitter follows back and I am honestly not sure how I feel about that.

standardization was nice until it interfered with profits

Twitter decided a ton of people were bots today, including me. Turns out that when Twitter decides you're a bot, it completely flushes your following list. I'm now following absolutely nobody. There's still people following me and they seem to be seeing my tweets, so I guess that is vaguely good.

And I g...

Awrite I have been sitting in this cafe for three hours and only one of those hours was spent drawing. It is time to Get Up And Go Somewhere Else.

I Am Not Milton Glaser

But I think if I wanted to, I could ape this definitively-seventies style of his pretty well; this is about twenty minutes of idle doodling and playing with Live Paint. It's a very different workflow from my normal one....

Sometimes, the proper way to get an idea across is via your teeth. Normalize biting - a swift nip conveys your thoughts more efficiently than a long sentence does. Sometimes the best thing to do in a situation is bite someone.

Last morning i dreamt that the final episode of the 80s Jetsons was titled "Fix The Telemax", which was a literal command to H-B regarding a useful previewing tool that had been broken for half the season. This was a bridge-burning John K stunt at the end of production.

I had to check when I got up. This was not a real story, but it sure was plausible.

There are so many enemies in Persona 5 who are unexpectedly horny. Look at this pretty bird. I just wanna take him out on a date.

it did at least perform a proper emergency hibernation though, so there's that. I'm still really annoyed that this is the SECOND time this thing's battery has gone to shit.

Ugh my Mac’s battery life is down to like a half an hour sitting around the cafe.
