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 I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.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

Reading Hacker Newsers insisting on the inevitability of AI art taking over everything is making the Butlerian Jihad sound equally inevitable.

I have covered up the obnoxiously shiny Apple logo on the back of my new computer but it really needs more stickers. Who amongst my artist friends has stickers I can trade a few bucks for.

Oh damn this is a really nice addition to the standard point-and-click adventure UI. Dialogue history scrollback!

Return to Monkey Island also has "hit tab to highlight interactive stuff" which is one of those innovations that took a disturbing amount of time to pop up. I don't miss playing hunt-the-pixel.

Memo to self: when I get home, I need to copy the Upload Process notes from my last notebook to the current one.

I was gonna plug the new drive into my desk setup but it's got a USBC cable and my desk hub only has USBA. I wonder if it delivers enough power over that to run this new drive.Let's see if the USBA-C cable that came with my tablet works, I'd replaced that with a USBC-C.

Bottom: 3 terabyte external drive, full of backups of the 2016 MacBook Pro.
Top: 5 terabyte external drive, to be filled with the 2022 Air.

Technology just vanishing up its own asshole here. Half the size, power and data over one cable, almost twice the capacity.

I have gotten about 7.5h of use out of one charge of this new computer. Without turning off the radios to conserve battery. I still have an estimated 30+ minutes left.

It is SO damn nice to be back to having more battery life than I can ever expect to use in a day. Having to constantly watch my power usage for the past few years with that Macbook Pro drove me nuts.

(All the gradients and edge effects and scattered sparkles are automatically generated, all I have to do is draw a vague shape.)

It is really nice to finally have enough CPU to work with the texture layer on *and* do lots of crazy stipple effect stuff. So much texture.

Fooling around with applying Astute's Stipplism to entire layers, now that my computer's a lot faster. It's still not realtime but it's a lot closer. Might be interesting to tackle a serious image like this, I'd have to think of something that's not porn first though.

it is four in the morning and I have Illustrator running properly and I should go to bed.

Also a quick test shows that my most-painterly files can still completely overload the GPU in this machine. I continue to be TOO INTENSE.

adobe why did you delete illustrator's prefs/custom keys/custom workspaces when you installed the m2 version for me, I can get it back out of Time Machine or the old computer but: fuck you

omfg the notch is so annoying, especially when the OS insists on constantly making the menu bar a bright color to contrast with the desktop image and highlight the stupid thing, all my menu extras are vanishing

I sure am glad this new computer reboots quickly because I had to do that like six times in a row to convince it to load in the various extensions I’m not willing to live without. Mostly Karabiner.

Oh geez there's not an Apple Silicon version of Quicksilver, I guess I am finally switching to Alfred. Wheee.

Two hours later it is actually transferring files. The estimate started around 36h and dropped fairly rapidly to around 8, I’m expecting to probably go to sleep before this is done.
