I was contacted late last year to illustrate a crest that features very prominently in the novel Ordinary Monsters and now that the book is out, I figure it's a fine time to show the work I did for it.
Grief, Mothers Day
My mother taught me when I was little that honeybees are good listeners who'll let you help them get out of the house, if you explain it to them, but that yellowjackets just aren't and just won't.
I haven't found this. Yellowjackets are excitable, but if you're calm and patient with them, they listen fine.
I saw my mom to say goodbye to her about 6 months before she died. She couldn't remember me, but she could tell that I loved her, and it put her at ease with me.
Votes for the poll are closed now. What a... hum hum... "lovely?" color. 😆
Thank you for all the participations! Now I'll try to paint a fantasy landscape with this one as my dominant color. I'll toot it here soon.
( If other artists around want to give this challenge a try , we can tag our toots with the hex address: #5b7376 to collect and discover them )
We start in about an hour (around 2:15 CST) and we’re making a new character in my old universe.
Our civilization is human, lost amongst the stars. We’re hundreds of years and a few generations removed from the exodus of the Sol galaxy. We’re still not sure exactly what happened to earth. We don’t know that we’re even in the same dimension…

a stop along the road is live!!! a wee little solo journaling game about a character who's chosen to settle down despite all the adventure in the world, offering their hospitality to adventurers coming through. i'm real grateful to this community for finally giving me the kick in the pants i've needed to finish this! please enjoy it—community copies are available if needed and refreshed in exchange for comments and ratings!!! 💖
If you know anyone who needs art for their ttrpg, tell me, I could help if it's something simple. I'll do it for free, but just one or two pieces, just want to help the indie creators. I can't offer realistic pieces, sorry.
I'll only take request if I like the project, but I don't have really high standards.

It’s spring in the northern hemisphere, which means new life. Describing new flora and fauna is one of the most fun parts of worldbuilding. Let’s start with flora.
What’s a plant that’s unique to your world? In what environment(s) does it thrive? What makes it interesting? Is it dangerous? Useful to people? Culturally significant?
