Bodies in Space: Convection


This is the first of a series called "Bodies in Space." This one illustrates that you don't freeze instantly in space, as if you've been launched out the airlock in Battlestar Galactica. On Earth you lose heat by convecting it into the air around you. In space, though, there is no medium into which you convect heat. Aside from evaporative cooling, the only way to lose heat is to radiate it, which is a far slower process. You'd be dead of something else long before you're cold. Neat!

I can't find spam protection that either A) doesn't let tons of spam through or B) doesn't delete legit comments. I've disable comments on account of what I just said; I apologize to anyone who took the time to leave one sad

Dead bugs in the mail


I found an ebay store what has dead bugs and will mail you dead bugs for money (an atlas rhino beetle, for instance). What you do with the bugs is your own business, and I won't ask, but me I choose to rehydrate them to splay their legs and draw them up. Maybe with carbon dust.

Prints available here.

Oh, Hi There


Someone recently messaged me on Etsy, saying how much they liked my description for this picture. For posterity, I'll post it here, too:

"I wanted something like a classic portrait to hang above my mantle, should I ever possess a fireplace. An image that would greet me warmly with a smile as I come home from a long day at the bug factory (we make all the bugs, sorry!) This is the image that I just now told you about.

'You're number one in my book!' is what you can imagine him saying to you."

Prints of this portrait of Riker (the manliest man), are available here.

I had an idea for a horse


I should probably take this down in case you steal my idea. My idea for this horse.

Early Bird


During a job hunt I had applied to an ad agency. To all their candidates they sent out the same small assignment, which was to create a mockup of a half-page ad for a fictitious small-business solutions firm. This was for the purpose of weeding out the bad applicants. I submitted a sketch of this very image, except that it said WORMS real big diagonally across it. I was weeded out.
