Magazine Distribution:

Ah shoot, I broke Tumblr while attempting to answer an ask!  8(  But someone was wondering how out of state folks could go about getting a copy of the magazine once it’s printed and complete:

I’m not 100% sure of how distribution of this little project is going to work; as a free, government funded product, it can’t be sold outright. I’ll be talking with the call-center folks in my building to confirm whether or not people living outside of Ohio (or out of country) are eligible for free copies!

The pictures are currently packaged into the 2014 Kid’s edition of the Wild Ohio Magazine available by subscription, but the free stand-alone education edition will be printed a few months from now- I’ll definitely have more news by then.  c:

I love my snapper Bou so much, aughh! This is an attempt to figure out how snipsnap mouths work. It is also a demonstration of how I put mammal teeth on every single animal.

!!!! THE BEST BOOKS ahhhh! <3 i am struck by the sudden urge to reread the tiffany aching series. (and it’s great that you have some room to breathe now!)

DISCWORLD, yes! I desperately need to read more of the Tiffany books someday- read Hatfull of Sky a million years back, but I can’t remember it very well. 

I was trudging around a bookstore back when I was a very mopey sixteen year old, pulling random things off the shelves, probably to laugh at overly dramatic summaries. Happened to grab a book with a picture of a kangaroo wearing a wizard’s hat on the cover, and it well and truly made me smile. Bought it on a whim and Pratchett completely flipped my outlook on life, and I owe a lot to him! 

My all time favorites are tied at Small Gods and Going Postal (though Mort and Hogfather were up there for a brief stint), and I’m working on Wyrd Sisters and Thief of Time. c8

Aten’t dead!

Hello world I’m still alive! That magazine project took over my life for the last two weeks, and the sucker’s finally off to the printer. Come Monday I’ll snag the finished illustrations from my work HD to share with you all throughout the week- it’s the largest project I’ve worked on thus far, and completing it produced a very different feeling compared to my usual standalone images.

I’m still in a bit of a stress-haze, I admit. For now I’m getting back on my internet feet, responding to things what need responding to, easing back into sketching for the fun of it, reading my neglected Discworld books, getting some sleep maybe.

Well, that scanned strangely. Another dragon with fungi camouflage, for good measure. Here&#8217;s the other one

100% view of one of the magazine spreads! I&#8217;ve been focusing so much on the entirety of the picture that it appears I&#8217;ve forgotten this poor fox&#8217;s other eyeball
