I realized while doing this that this is the only way I've ever really seen space and probably the only way I ever will.  That's ok though, because it's still crazy beautiful.

For Illustration Friday, topic: "space".
And while we're on the topic, do yourself a favor and download Stellarium if you haven't already.


I started sending postcards via postcrossing earlier this year.  This one went to Russia, so I made it extra Florida-y.  Gouache on ink on bristol.  It took a lot of ink to get that bristol black but it was worth it - better surface finish.

!!!THRASHER!!! >:[ !!!

 I noticed a new bird in my yard today which I hadn't seen before.  Did a super quick sketch of the guy before trying to figure out what he was.  Turns out he's a Brown Thrasher -but was first misidentified as a Wood Thrush.

*edit: I just realized how many miscelaneous things I do relate to birds (and there are no signs of that letting up) so now there's a tag for that!  It's at rank #11 in size, right behind "stupid".

It rained today!  And then it rained some more!
