Today I went to an open hour at the pole studio and just spent all that time trying a few basic things and thinking about why I can do them on one side but not the other. Mostly the answer is “my right arm is stronger” I think. Gotta keep building that habit of doing spur-of-the-moment pull-ups on the sill of the transom window above my studio door, I guess.
Shadow likes to sit on the sill of the front door’s transom. It would be kind of hilarious to go out there when she’s doing that and pull myself up and say “hi” and pet her. Which would also mean I could casually do a one-handed pull-up and was in pretty good shape for a fifty-something nerd…
Damn, Matt Howarth has a lot of Kief Llama he's been quietly doing for free over the pandemic.
another twenty minutes or so doodling some text and refining the lighting with Astute's Gradient Forge plugin, it would be interesting to do a short comic in this mode with "sober" parts drawn in simple B&W
cw: still contains very loosely drawn human butt
ten minute doodle of naga witch lady, inspired by misreading a thumbnail of a witch lady behind a cauldron full of alligator while I was doing an image search for something else entirely
cw: i guess there's a naked human butt in there but I haven't actually put any work into delineating it, also the whole thing definitely has horny energy to it
Damn that sure was a stress dream. Oh no! I forgot I had a flight home to visit Mom TODAY! I need to pack, where’s all my stuff in this weird little apartment I share with several people? Why can’t I get my calendar up on my phone no matter how many times I try? Why do I keep on ignoring that my phone is very clearly displaying a dream-phone UI?
Such a relief to wake up. Bonus relief: i paused while writing this to check my calendar and verify that there was absolutely nothing scheduled for today.

Today we went out to the cafe with a printout of one half of Parallax and talked about how to fix it. We have not completely figured this out but we have made the problem domain much smaller. So that's good.
Also I put some beads on my new bike and enchanted it to get me where I need to be rapidly and safely, as one does.
M. John Harrison’s “Light” was an interesting and strange space opera. It also has the most mention of masturbating I have seen in any book I can remember. I have read sex magic manuals that talked less about masturbation.
Also one of the plot threads is about a serial killer and it is absolutely astounding how prosaically he handles this. No wallowing in torture scenes. No lingering in guilt. Just bland single sentences declaring that he killed someone.
Pit together these two features give it a bit of an MFA Dude aura that I was really not expecting from the same hand as “Viriconium”.
Got a 78 RPM turntable and a spare weekend? Wanna build a Dreammachine? https://docs.google.com/file/d/1fj6MDdFL4YfavADUhMixXIrjjJzJrA59kGKrB-Km6XMrtT7_NP4Db-UuEcLR/edit
I went to Office Depot for some folders to put the printouts of Parallax in and impulses on some sparkly purple washi tape for the sole purpose of giving Frater Printy a stylish name tag.
I think between this and the bike acquisition I have done a days worth of work. Time to get dressed for pole dance and head out to a cafe with a book.
Yay! I finally got my new printer hooked up and it is working well. After one test print I immediately launched into printing out the entirety of Parallax so @zebratron2084 and I can stare at it and figure out how to FIX it.
Frater Printy is spitting them out fast, I suspect I might be done already if this was going over a wire instead of through the air. Perhaps the best place for Frater Printy to live is next to the router in the living room, where he can have an Ethernet cable to that?
That Yiffy Vixen may have been one of the first instances of a running joke I had for a while: if you'd say "Peggy, draw me a yiffy vixen", I would do so, and attempt to make it the most comedically regrettable yiffy vixen you had ever seen.
