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 I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.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

Oh right I looked through my FA favorites and I think I remember what I wanted to draw.

Damnit there was some idea I had the other day and thought "that would be hot to draw when I am in the mood to lounge around and draw something horny" and now it is kind of that time and I have absolutely no clue what that idea was.

I think I have finished That Spread.

It is up on Patreon, twice, because it is a double-page spread.

patreon.com/posts/26955802 - normal size with dialogue and commentary

patreon.com/posts/26955841 - extra-large for your desktop, no dialogue

I think I'm pretty close to done with this insane spread. Showed it to Nick and he agreed, though he did have a suggestion I'll work on tomorrow.

And then I get to start working on the five Mixolyne pages I've had completely roughed out for most of the time I've been working on this spread. There's not much new background work to do on them so they may go delightfully fast.

This evening’s office. I was gonna sit inside but almost all of the tables are full; my laptop still has charge and it’s real nice out.

My right shoulder aches from holding my arm over my tablet. I have definitely gone too long without drawing. Getting back in the swing of it though, I almost finished that crazy Escher spread and might call it done tonight!

This morning I picked up Amon Tobin's new album. I then realized that I probably want to play it with some actual BASS. Which lead to me opening up every single box marked as being for the living room, so I could get the speakers back together.

ONE of the five surround satellites is still lurking in a non-living-room box. But I emptied out a bunch of boxes in my quest, and found one of the most important things: the box full of the hoard of the toy dragon that lives on my desk.

Most disappointing game I paid full price for: Nier Automata.

Sounded interesting, played terrible, and I saw the “shocking” plot twists coming halfway to the first fake ending.

If a dragon allows you to tuck in under their wings, they care very deeply about you.

Every video improves with captions. Caption everything.

workin' on parallax, postin' progress of That Crazy Escher Spread to Patreon - it's starting to actually feel like a thing I can finish instead of a thing I'll be working on forever. patreon.com/posts/26914086

Yesterday I learnt that what appears to be a cheap motel three blocks away from my place is also a cocktail bar and a nude swim club. Guess that explains the high fences!

This town is just a fractal of weird little surprises.

There are zero wolves inside me as far as I can tell. There are however at least two snakes; one of them is pretty much always asleep and I only noticed him in the past year.

Also there is a dragon.

So I think I wanna propose a New Orleans furry con for next year.

It will be called Fur-De-Lis and it will be held in January at World's End. I will provide a six-pack of Dixie as the con's entertainment.
