Today feels like a good day to work on this idea I had earlier this week.


She is sitting next to me on the sofa & very cute & I want to get up & draw but I don’t want to disturb her plz help


Also, observe how high up this is. See those two little windows under the peak of the roof? She’s sticking her head out of the missing pane. Fun.

So Artie poked her nose out again and we assembled the Cat Lift Deluxe out of some junk lying outside next door. We were able to get this milk crate up next to the window; with Crystal’s help (she’s in the other side of this shotgun double and also Doesn’t Own Artie) we coaxed her into the box on the second try but abandoned ship when it started swaying as we tried to take it down.

She is still safe and now we know she can get through the window. We were worried she was unable to get through. Now we know she can.

I have plans to improve this and make it more stable by using two uprights instead of one. But first I need to chill a bit.

Artemis has been up in the neighbor's attic since yesterday evening and we're starting to think she's stuck. Wheee. She's been up there before and come down but she is just Not Budging; she keeps on mewling sadly. And won't come all the way out of that window, which would theoretically be the way back down (by going around the roof to some sheds behind the house).

I am thinking it is time for some commissions.

Prices will vary, expect at least $100. Painterly? Starkly graphic? Whatever. 4 figures maximum.

Send email to and we'll talk. Reply here and let me know you sent something, too.

Also if you have something lingering from me that we set up when I wasn't officially Open For Commissions, poke that email thread. It's been A Year.

Damn. I always envisioned the asteroid belt as something more... discrete. Look at this map of every known asteroid. What a messy cloud. Just a giant whorl of matter swirling in space.

I have been in two of Dat Dog’s three locations and they all have some kind of portrait of St. Francis. Bless this house of hot dogs.

Today while walking out to the cafe, @zebratron2084 and I came up with a followup to Stella's Guide to the Golden Dawn, if I ever get back to that. It would be presented as more of a manual to recognize a sort of person who should be shot on sight, rather than a guide for an aspiring politician to follow.

The derpy little cartoon Prince would probably be murdered in many, many goofy cartoon ways by an angry cartoon tiger lady over the course of this book. He is a turnip with a comb-over, a tie, and a crown.

The effigy of Joan of Arc, patron saint of New Orleans, has been paraded past the Mayor and the French Consul. Angels bless this city for another year. Let’s hope it takes.

It is a very good feeling to look in the sky at oncoming clouds, decide to go home and wait it out, and get home RIGHT as it starts getting serious about rain.

get stoned, start reading a new translation of the Tao Te Ching, pause six chapters in to start to draw a divine Weaver

pretty normal night, I guess, maybe I'll try and finish this tonight/tomorrow?

Yay, one more card for the Fake Gameboard spread in Parallax. Which is one of the major blocks to getting the whole chapter done.

6 cards left, plus whatever I do to make the gameboard pretty, and some tokens to draw...

sweet monkey fuck

this piece of nonsense is the most popular thing I have ever said on Twitter and I hate everything now
