The evolution of woodpecker drums

Here’s a big update: my second first-author article was featured as the cover article in PRSB in February! It’s open access, so anyone can read about how sexual selection and body size interact to shape how this magnificent gestural display evolved.

Also two more that will not be scanned and uploaded because… eugh.


This is… harder… and taking longer than anticipated. Kinda feels like maybe I should have tried to paint simpler things first? Anyway. Finally moving on to the next lesson’s homework. But I really think that in order to improve I’m mostly just going to have to paint more regularly.

Lenore dress is nearly ready for Hallowe’en! It’s totally on the cheap, so cheap lace (¥98 for 2m!) and no lace covering the skirt unfortunately… but I thought I’d get a little creative with the fabric dye instead! Next I’m going to glue me on some diamantés and then wait till my husband leaves the house so I can singe the bottom, because people who are lady ghosts should look like they’ve just escaped from hell, right? I’ll post a final picture when I have the wig and make up too!

“Have you seen my pipe? Oh wait–there–it’s right in my mouth.” -Constable Jim

We are ACTUALLY peeing ourselves with excitement to announce that Jim O’Heir–yes, Jim O’Heir–will be joining Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party as none other than Constable Jim, an original character.

You may know Jim as Jerry/Gary/Larry/Terry Gergich from Parks & Recreation. And if you don’t, what are you doing with your life?? Get thee to a Netflix!

Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party NOW ON KICKSTARTER!

Like…can you even? I can’t even. I thought I could even but I just can’t. Parks and recreation has been so very comforting to me over the years and I am absolutely honored that Jim agreed to take on this role.

@seanpersaud and I wrote this part specifically for him and it is crazy to see this poster now….

Thanks for all your support guys.

The New Dog by Linda Pastan

Into the gravity of my life,
the serious ceremonies
of polish and paper
and pen, has come

this manic animal
whose innocent disruptions
make nonsense
of my old simplicities

as if I needed him
to prove that after
all that careful planning
anything can happen.

I illustrated this poem for my first page of nagranowrimo! This is also literally what happened when I sat down to draw and was hindered by my aunt’s dog. I freehanded the panel lines instead of using a ruler like I usually do and for one I like this style better and it also takes a lot less time.

mugenmine:

The first manuscript page from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s second Sherlock Holmes story is returning to London after an absence of more than a century.

The handwritten manuscript from The Sign of Four in 1889 is said to be one of the rarest items known to enthusiasts of the fictional detective.

Sir Arthur’s leaf of paper is the earliest manuscript page of the famous author’s Holmes collection to be sent to publishers and printed verbatim. (x)

Such marvelous handwriting…

Heh.
