HM THEMES

yo but mermaid monster hybrids though

  • vampire mermaids who prey on their own kind — when they get bitten, their scales fall off, their tails turn a slick and fleshy grey, a dorsal fin begins to sprout from their spine, and suddenly there’s six rows of teeth where once there was only one
  • mermaid medusas who’ve got eels for hair and it’s not their gaze that can turn you to stone but their song
  • fairy mermaids who’re born of spite and mischief — they’re small, the size of seahorses, and they speed through the currents causing mayhem and sometimes destruction
  • were-mermaids who turn into huge, hulking great whites when the full moon filters through the deep waters, who cannot be restrained because what shackles can you find in the deep?, who leave blood and guts in their wake

Let’s go deeper

  • Mermaid dryads tied to a whole kept forest, fins and hair perfectly camouflaged with their natural habitat. They drift serenely through their gardens until it is threatened, when the whole kelp forest turns on the attacker and drags it down to its death.
  • Elementally aligned mermaids - air-aligned mermaids leap joyously from the water and glide on tough fins, punching through the surface of the water like tiny spears of silver-blue. Fire-aligned mermaids drawn to deep volcanic vents, blind and sickly-white with teeth that fit together like a sieve.
  • Kraken mermaids.

Bad Weather’s all done! The longest Supercakes comic to date at 21 pages! All of which can be read on the site.

I often want to do a comic with Kat Leyh but I’m really content to just read ‘em ‘cause they’re perfect.

Little comic about how to make zucchini bread in these trying times. Dedicated to CB Cebulski, Mike Hardin, Ming Doyle, and anyone else who sunk my zucchini bread deep within their bodies.

Your OC cooking for you makes for great cooking comics.

Inheritance Of Plumage Colors In Andalusian Fowls

hugonebula:

Master glassblower and stained glass artist Loren Stump in California has wowed the internet with an extraordinary display of virtuosity. He created a “loaf” of glass, called murrine, out of carefully layered glass rods that, when sliced, reveal a painstakingly detailed work of art in cross-section.

"The most impressive thing about his work is that the resulting image can only be seen in its entirety after the murrini is cut…"

At the end of April, my partner and I were invited to Gwaii Haanas to help our friend, a biologist, to monitor sooty grouse, goshawks and other sea and song birds. Gwaii Haanas also asked me to do some drawings while I was there. I drew many of these on the boat and in the floatcamp during a gale warning.

Suuuuch gorgeous work by Kara Sievewright!

THE WEBCOMIC ABOUT GAY WESTERN CENTAURS IS BACK with a vengeance and a timeskip! I’m happy to report that I was able to make excellent use of the break and all of the preorders for the first volume are out the door, I quit my part-time foodservice job, and it was replaced instantly with several other exciting things! 

In other news, I’ll be at Anime Boston, Emerald City Comic Con, and MoCCA Fest with copies of Vol.1 (as well as a few prints), and I hope to see some of you there!!!

THANKS FOR READING!!
