sometimes my art brain gets too stiff and needs flexing, so I draw stuff that’s harder to visualize that needs lots of work to make it look easy. Feet work great for this, also fingers. I spent some time staring at skeleton ankles to get myself in the mood. And bam, Fuuka feet in her current summery yoga queen slipper thingies.

i was gonna take the usual snapshot but while I was feeding my lil Deino buddy (Mop Top) I saw what a nice and gruesome shot I could take instead. and thus was this highly inappropriate update image born!
sure he used to be a terrible murdeing douche, but now he’s just loud, plus hugging him is like a bony screaming rodeo that can make your skull implode. how can anyone resist?
veeeeery gingerly poking my head back into tumbland. it’s been a long time, but I needed the break. hopefully everyone is doing well. jk i know we’re fucking cursed in here. but hi!
Coming home I was behind a van having major trouble going up the hill. Hazards were flashing and I could see the driver shouting and waving his hands. Van cleared the first set of train tracks (barely) but stalled midway across the second set.
I pulled over and got out. because fuck what if a train comes and only my landwhale self can knock him free? Went over but just then the driver popped back up from where he was bent over at the wheel, still looking exasperated and awkward. The van pulled off the tracks and cleared the potholes.
As the van pulled out, I called to the driver “That’s a super unfortunate spot to get stuck!” and he nods sheepishly through the open window and says “THERE WAS A KITTEN UNDER THE GAS PEDAL."
I look in the back as they pass: a little girl in a booster seat, hugging a tiny cat.
It was the best almost-tragedy ever.

spent the evening coloring this bit while watching Hannibal s2. the whole time I had the fountains of Wayne song ‘red dragon tattoo’ playing in my head and I suddenly realized all three of the tings have come together: the novel Red Dragon and that song are why Red has that tattoo. all in one sitting. life is great.
