July & August


Pictured here is a "seer," a large, slug-like creature covered in a thick fur and a multitude of eyes. Each eye is attached to a flexible stalk that is extendable and retractable. Seers can look in any direction at once and are able to process a large amount of visual information effectively. Perhaps because of this ability, seers spend much of their lives gazing at the sky, at the sea, at the stars, studying minute details, and admiring vast vistas. They are renowned thinkers and poets.

Unfortunately, the seer seen here has become infected with "the blot," an affliction in which the spores of a parasitic fungus blow into the eyes of a seer. As the blot develops, it feeds on the tissue of a seer's eyes, absorbing it.

The spaceman in this picture is removing the infection from the seer as a gesture of goodwill towards the creatures of the planet for allowing him to explore its surface.

The meaninglessness of life and death and the succor of television.

Here is a (Cat) Heart

Oh hey. Below is a cat-comic/drawing. It's my interpretation of the wonderful song 'Here is a Heart' by the fantastic Jenny Owen Youngs. If you haven't yet, you should definitely give her a listen--she is a super amazing writer and musician. Look, I can't even help rhyming by mistake when trying to write about her. 

The drawing is sort of large and hard to display on a screen, so I've provided some close-ups below the over-all view. For you're convenience.

May


fungus forest

Inspired by Karen Russell's amazing short story "Reeling for the Empire," in which factory workers are mutated into human/silk worm hybrids. "'Are we monsters now?' I give Dai a helpless look. That's a question I won't answer." 

Memories of a Shadow

I finished this tiny story in the week leading up to the Pioneer Valley Zine Fest. It's part one of a (hopefully) continuing story.

April

The Woolly Terrestrial Octopus is a land-dwelling carnivore that can weigh up to 75 pounds. It is warm-blooded and lives in northern temperate forests, hunting mainly for squirrels, small rodents, and birds. It has a thick coat of fur and is able to climb trees and rocky outcrops using its strong arms, which are lined with suction cups that secrete a sticky mucus. Unlike its invertebrate marine counterpart, the terrestrial octopus has a skeleton, including a skull, rib cage, and vertebra-like columns of bones within each arm.
