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 I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.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

*wakes up from a dream*

*feels too lazy to write it down*

An alarm starts going off at the bakery next door. I’m sure not gonna get back to sleep with that. Guess I’ll write down that dream about my aunt getting semi-consensually beaten by her husband Raymond while I’m clutching some Raymond Smullyan books.

*alarm stops the instant I finish the last paragraph of dream description*

There is a thing writers sometimes do where they essentially start writing the script for a stage/film/etc production instead of prose. It can be fun when it works, annoying when it doesn't.

I suddenly wonder: Is there an equivalent for comics? What would it look like?

Current rumors indicate that yes, the next Air will have a stupid-ass notch, ugh. 

Lizard Combos. 

Back in 1982, one of Atari's programmers was working on a VCS game based on the Residents album "Mark Of The Mole". It was never finished, and only two prototypes appear to exist - an early one that was given to the band, and a later one that has been lost.

AAAH LOOK AT THOSE SPRITES IT'S DEFINITELY THAT GRUMPY CUBIST ASSHOLE FROM THE COVER OF THE ALBUM

This book cover commission is going to a fascinatingly different place than usual.

ART TIP: When working on book/album covers, or anything else that will spend a lot of its life as a tiny icon, do window>new window and create a second, tiny view so you can keep a constant eye on how it works at that scale.

Move, every Zig. Move.

You know what you doing.

Move.

I wonder if the stupid notch Apple added to the new Mac Pros will be showing up in next year's Airs as well.

I wonder how badly Adobe Illustrator will deal with having one.

If there was a custom option for "no webcam and thus no notch" I'd go for it, I can count on one hand the times I've needed a webcam, ever.

digging into getting some stuff my grandmother left me that ended up in the world of Unclaimed Property and oh god I need to get something called a "judgement of possession" which probably involves $$$lawyers$$$

how the fuck do I find a lawyer, how do I not spend thousands of dollars for a single hour talking to them, aaaagh

I am doing some stuff that requires me to dig through the various documents related to my mother's death and holy shit it still hurts even though it's been like six years. Wheee.

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.
