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 I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.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

Sometimes I wish there was a "search" function for Illustrator's toolbar. Which stack is this particular tool I rarely use and don't have a hotkey for hiding in?

(This would be in addition to OSX's "search" function for the menus. Which I use occasionally.)

I really gotta get my commissions queue cleared out. It's been so damn slow.

Played more Outer Wilds DLC tonight. Got to a new area after seeing a filmstrip that said "don't do this" and immediately going to do just that.

It really feels like that should have given me a huge boost towards the endgame and yet I still really don't have the faintest idea of what I am ultimately supposed to be doing.

that moment when the drugs kick in and you realize that there is absolutely nothing in the universe except you and your infinite reflections

So one of the things I do to put off getting work done is to go to the Illustrator subreddit and answer people's "how do I do this" questions. Yesterday there was someone asking how to do this:

 to which I replied

I spent about 4h hyper focused on doing that picture and getting it posted everywhere. I think it is a good time for a walk and a food.

A couple of days ago, my friend Dana posted a picture of her ponysona.

"This is cute and I should draw this," I thought to myself. So the next day, I did. She liked it and made a closeup of it her Twitter icon, so I'm happy.

and a slight variant to create a spiral; I think I now see how to make Illustrator quickly do my own riffs on Escher's "Circle Limit" pieces if I find myself in that mood.

fucking around with eye-twisting patterns in Illustrator

Sitting in a cafe doodling my various fursonas talking to each other about this vague malaise I’ve been feeling and trying to work out a plan to deal with stuff that may be contributing to it. Sometimes a sketchbook is self-therapy.

Joplin is also a piece of web trash pretending to be a native app but at least it's leveraging its webtrashiness to allow things like "a plugin to deal with the sync conflicts that plagued Evernote for its entire lifespan". And you, like, can't accidentally select half the fucking UI as text like you can with Webshit EN.

apparently it is that time of the month when I swear at note-taking "solutions", I am trying to get Joplin properly syncing shit so we can use it as a replacement for Evernote and it is being balky; doing this involved briefly loading up the modern Evernote and *fuck* that is a horrible piece of web trash pretending to be a native app.
