Oh also: do you want Super Ultra Night Mode on your iThings?

Open Settings. Go to the General pane; choose Accessibility. Hit Display Accomodations near the top; choose Color Filters, then tell it you want a red Color Tint at full intensity.

Then go back up to Accessibility, down at the bottom you want Accessibility Shortcut. Turn on Color Filters. Now triple-clicking the Home button turns off ALL THE BLUES AND GREENS, giving you an iThing you can use without ruining your night vision or making your brain think it’s perpetually midday!

Makes bedtime reading SO much nicer.

Today I learnt that a long press on IOS11 control panel items can reveal extra controls. Who knew?

I took this pendant off and put it down and the cord just kinda decided to take the shape of a cartoon heart...

I should start drawing more of the backgrounds in this spread. Once I draw enough it starts to be more about cutting, pasting, and skewing than actually drawing. But getting to that point requires focus in a way that just turning a character rough into a drawing doesn’t.

Still: progress is progress.

Wandering around the UW campus drawing. I found a pretty little space I didn’t even know existed. I think I’ll be coming back here.

This is not necessarily a *good* drawing of Olivia. But it is a *funny* drawing of her, and sometimes that’s what counts.

Drew a decent model sheet of Olivia so that I could pay a friend to draw her.

I spent like an hour staring at interlocking puzzles because I am designing a prop for Parallax that I want to have that vibe. It will come apart into weird floating pieces kinda like the Infinity Judge weapon in Okami and the thing in one old drawing of a lava-lamp lady.

Colors very not final, these are just to think about SHAPES. Now that I've decided my first instinct to shape it like an egg was a good one, I get to think about colors and details and whatnot...

Sometimes I get commissions of my characters. Sometimes they turn out amazing.

my regular reminder: what the fuck am i still doing in seattle

(working on it)

I am trying to submit my resume to's TV division and I get this. Guess I'll have to dig up a physical route.

PROTIP: Sometimes the reversed King of Swords in my deck is just telling you to DO A BARREL ROLL!!!!!.

I still have the cold @acetone_kitten gave me when they stopped by the other day, so I spent today putting together this little paper Taj Mahal kit I’ve had sitting around. It was really satisfyingly fiddly to assemble.

No Trina the Taj is not a crown. Yes I know it looks good on you.

Well I *was* thinking of looking into showing up at Defcon to sell my super nerdy comics but
