Pinned toot

I have decided it's time to reveal my secret identity. It's...

...actually just another mastodon account. If you like role playing games and / or want to hear the other half of things I ramble about, feel free to give @ossifog a follow.

Pinned toot

Hi, everyone. I'm primarily a writer, but I keep telling myself if I just finish just one more page of comics, I'll finally be a real comic-ist.

I don't have a website yet, but hopefully I will one day. In the meanwhile, here's a screenshots from all of the three pages I've finished so far.

Looking forward to talking fiction and / or art with all of you.

Saw a eagle? hawk? on our afternoon walk today. Seemed to have caught a pigeon. Unconcerned by the pedestrians on the street not ten feet from it.

Real time updates from googdocs as friend reads my book is terrifying. I'm deliberately not reading them 'til later.

After ten minutes fucking around with my camera's wifi image transfer nonsense, I just gave up and plugged the sim card into a usb-c adapter and that into my phone.

I love you, hardware.

Couple things I made: A autotile set, and then some kelp plants to grow in them:

Constructive criticism very much appreciated

I really /really/ like PyxelEdit. I find myself wishing for a couple more features (esp. with animated tilesets) but its base set of features are superb.

Linux compatible with wine too.

Food mention 

Just had some leftover Thanksgiving pie. It was so delicious, if I die if food poisoning it'll still have been worth it.

I've got a kick-ass essay rolling around in my head with the inflammatory title "Art is worth zero dollars"

Once you get past the clickbait title it's about how art cannot flourish in a capitalist society--or even stronger, how capitalism deliberately devalues art in order to perpetuate itself.

Call for authors 

My (print and web) magazine, @snipette, is looking for new #authors ✏️ 👀

We publish 1200-1800 word non-fiction covering things like #science, #culture, and #history, but using #storytelling techniques like plot and metaphor to get our point across 📓 🌠

Do reply to know more, and spread the word to anyone interested! 🗨️ 💬

Okay, a slightly more serious update. This one looks unimpressive (especially if you're just looking at the preview) but I bought a camera 'cause I wanted to do astrophotography, so this is my first successful photo of the stars.

Caught a cold. Not at all debilitating, but does ask the much more worrying of how the heck I got it in the first place.

Mastofriends, you are always part of the latter category. Up to you if you're in the former.

Trying to work up the courage to send a coworker/friend draft 3 of my book.

The venn diagram overlap of people who want to read my book and the people that I'm okay with knowing the very depths of my soul basically non-existent.

Me: Let's do a cool anatomy drawing showcasing a lot of musculature

Also me: what size head goes with what size body?

Been enjoying having my book read to me in the dulcet tones of a british male robot.

Also found some typos too.

Have you ever hand-written the start of a short story, and then misplaced it, realizing that it's lost forever only after you tried to resume writing it?
