Animals with people feet continues. Elephant! I imagine they would need stumpy, strong hands, that would get pretty broken and gnarly looking after a while.

Because I spend many, MANY of my work hours chained to my desk I often have something running in the background to listen to while I work. Under the Influence is one of my favorites; its probably one of the few things I keep current with - I rarely miss an episode!

Under the Influence is a radio…

Something new for Anime North. I’m loosening up on my own rules and allowing myself to make items for fandoms that wouldn’t have them otherwise. I have yet to see adorable tiny kaiju. That glow in the dark.

Might still do some painting on this little fellow, but for now he’s looking cute.

Gipsy is currently in the works, and so far, standing upright on her own!

A slow day at the BPRD! I wrote on my hand that I wouldn’t do any fanart until school was over. Haha, funny! 

I like wide eyed Abe.

Your colour work on that first panel is so pretty.

And of course Abe didn’t do it, he’s an honest kinda guy.

IM SENDING THIS TO MY ART HISTORY TEACHER

I CAN’T EVEN TELL YOU HOW HELPFUL THIS IS

This would have been so good to remember on so many tests. And hilarious.

The new Z-series suit is designed for walking on Mars, not simply floating around in space as astronauts have in the past. The space agency now wants your help to pick the final look.

Annie J. Easley: Why she kicks ass
When people have their biases and prejudices, yes, I am aware. My head is not in the sand. But my thing is, if I can’t work with you, I will work around you. I was not about to be so discouraged that I’d walk away. That may be a solution for some people, but it’s not mine.
She was an computer scientist, mathematician and rocket scientist, who worked for the Lewis Research Center of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and its predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). She was a leading member of the team which developed software for the Centaur rocket stage and one of the first African-Americans in her field.
 As part of the Jim Crow laws that established and maintained racial inequality, African Americans were required to pass an onerous literacy test and pay a poll tax in order to vote. She remembers the test giver looking at her application and saying only, “You went to Xavier University. Two dollars.” Subsequently, she helped other African Americans prepare for the test.
She began her career in as a Mathematician and Computer Engineer at the NACA Lewis Flight Propulsion Laboratory (which became NASA Lewis Research Center, 1958–1999, and subsequently the John H. Glenn Research Center) in Cleveland, Ohio. She continued her education while working for the agency and in 1977, she obtained a Bachelor of Sciencein Mathematics from Cleveland State University. As part of a continuing education, Easley worked through specialization courses offered by NASA.
Her 34-year career included developing and implementing computer code that analyzed alternative power technologies, supported Centaur, determined solar, wind and energy projects, identified energy conversion systems and alternative systems to solve energy problems. Her energy assignments included studies to determine the life use of storage batteries, such as those used in electric utility vehicles. Her computer applications have been used to identify energy conversion systems that offer the improvement over commercially available technologies. She retired in 1989 (some sources say 1991).
Easley’s work with the Centaur project helped as technological foundations for the space shuttle launches and launches of communication, military and weather satellites. Her work contributed to the 1997 flight to Saturn of the Cassini probe, which was launched by the Centaur.
Annie Easley was interviewed in Cleveland, on August 21, 2001 by Sandra Johnson.The interview is stored in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Johnson Space Center Oral History Program. The 55 page interview transcript includes material on the history of the Civil Rights Movement, Glenn Research Center, Johnson Space Center, space flight, and the contribution of women to space flight.

Saw the wierdest thing today! I was walking home from some errands, and took a longer route as it was really, really nice out. (I’ll have to make a comic about the other thing that happend that day later). I was rounding around behind the local home depot, and I see an animal scoot his way up a phone pole, and I had to stop and just stare at this little chub chub, because it was completely unfamiliar to me. My first thought was a possum, but the head was far too small. My brain suggested Australia, but that wasn’t right for many, many reasons. When I got close enough to look up at him, I noticed the mask, and it dawned on me-

this was a raccoon. A raccoon with short fur. Roommate and one of my friends suggested maybe it was mange, but upon googling it, I don’t think so. His pattern was there and obvious, right down to the tail, which doesn’t seem to be the case when the fur is gone. It was young for sure, about half size, and had a healthy wariness and a nice belly without being fat, so he seemed healthy otherwise.
Nature! Full of surprises!

This wins cosplay forever.

That’s gorgeous and they should be super effin tastic proud.

Lost track of myself for a bit, but hoping to post on the regular now. Back to the animals with people feet series- the manatee. Tried painting solely with hard brushes today. I do that usually, but never attempt to blend. Think I will give that more of a go. 

Manatees are the best of nature, like little floating buddhas who wish you only peace and friendliness. Bless the manatee.
