Been busy, so not a lot of fun drawings happening, but I did take this week to try something new. My old watercolor palette was wonderful but not ideal, so I thought it would be fun to try to make one out of some .5mm brass sheet that could fit a few new colors and be a little more comfortable in use on my desk. I learned a lot, and while it definitely shows some roughness from my not having proper tools or making something out of metal before, it’s sturdy and will do its job well!

English trivia (sorry, jordy): "a" is to "an" as "thy" is to "thine". That is, "thy" comes before a consonant, and "thine" comes before a vowel. "Thy seeds", "thine acorns".

@Andy_P I don’t know if I ever explained why we have so many kittens. My wife was trained in wildlife rescue, she since scaled back to taking in orphan feral kittens. Sometimes only hours old. Once they’re big enough they’ll get fixed and later put up for adoption. It’s a good program of volunteers, and not just anyone can adopt the fur babies. Landlords are called to confirm pet rules.

Yo, man we've literally had a billion stories about cishet folks.

More shows/movies about gay relationships, trans relationships, bi relationships, relationships that we don't even have a name for yet.

More shit that gets deep into the plethora of humans experiences we haven't even scratched the surface of yet.

Rather than launch into a rant about education, I will say simply this:

When you praise someone - anyone - for a successful project, PLEASE praise the WORK they put into the project, including the training they went through to be able to do the work - and NOT their "talent" or "smartness" or "giftnedness".

As I lift the toilet lid a disembodied voice says, "We've updated our privacy policy."

Build. Test. Tweak. Repeat.

Brown Noser always has a dirty snout. She likes to eat spread-eagle across the wet cat food making snow-angels in the gravy. I blame the parents.

We tried to give the kitten good wholesome names, but nothing stuck. Now they're Brown Noser, White Nose, Dark Nose, Rollie, and The Other One.

Sorting order seems to have no effect in 2D mode, but works when the camera is switched to 3D??! And it was working fine yesterday. Ugh.

UNITY!!!!! *shakes fist at sky*
