I’ve started to devote the majority of my free time to art and the benefits have been so rewarding. Art gets my mind off things. It filters out those thoughts that cause an unsteady hand. It eases all the internal tension and smooths my arches of breathing. If it weren’t for the values and forms, I’d lose myself into the papers texture, becoming the rough lifts and torn edges. But here I am after a dose of color and my mind feels a little lighter. I can’t say it relieves all sour thoughts but it does dull out the majority of them. So when I say art keeps me sane, it really does do just that. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”

My soul cried out for Ash, for his courage and determination; for the way his eyes thawed when he looked at me, as if I were the only person in the world; for that beautiful, wounded spirit I saw beneath the cold exterior he showed the world.


life is easy, son. it’s just like riding a bike that’s on fire and you’re on fire and everything is on fire and you’re in hell

Somebody tried to stump this squid by putting it in front of a background that its camouflage mechanisms could never hope to imitate…
So it turned itself transparent.

stick it to the man, Squid.


As C.M. Kosemen explains throughout All Yesterdays, we really can’t ever know how much fat and other soft tissues contributed to the overall shape of dinosaurs since that’s the first thing to rot and shrivel tight against their bones and like even a sperm whale has a little skinny skeleton.

how would we know?

How I imagine it went down
  • C.S. Lewis:I made you a character in my book!

  • Lewis:You're the man who created the wardrobe that leads to Narnia!
  • Tolkien:...
  • Lewis:Who am I?
  • Tolkien:A tree
  • Lewis:............
  • Tolkien:But, like, a cool tree
