as I was walking...

Actually, I was settled in one place, come to think.

Anyway, so Cambridge (the College) has moved, and unexpectedly postponed the start of classes for a week due to what seem to have been electrical and networking issues, so classes only just started. (I did various Useful Things at home during the week, but, confronted with an extension of my vacation, I also shrugged and vacated some more. I went to Nut Island one day, and then World's End over the weekend, after which I had the entertaining experience of watching the fog roll in on Nantasket Beach. Rarely does it happen so clearly. Also got to watch the sunset at the endpoint of Hull. Mmm. Waves.)

Getting back to the point, here, it's already become clear from three days' worth of evidence that if I leave campus at a certain point, I will miss my useful bus home. It's not like I'm doing it on purpose, it's just, the way class and the subway and the busses work out, I barely miss the last bus before they transition from every-20-minutes-or-so, and hit the valley of the one bus that's a 40 minute wait. (After that they're every half hour.)

Since my various travels of August and September disrupted my gym routine (and then I was sick for a few days), and I haven't gotten back into it, what I have been doing lately is walking more. Running into this bus valley enables me to mutter and, rather than waiting in irritation, I stop by the grocery store/food co-op, and then am able to walk 3/4 of a mile or so until the next bus comes. (The way to do this is to walk until I see the inbound bus coming, at which point I stop at the next bus stop and wait for the outbound return, because to be caught between bus stops would be *annoying*, yo.)

In this particular instance, I had just stopped at the bus stop and was (I admit) looking at my phone when a guy coming out of a cross street whammed into the woman driving on the main street, right in front of me. (Durnell Ave at Washington St. No one cares but me.)

More detail than one needs on an accident. )

So! Good deed completed, I left and went down to the bus stop with a bench, and hung out reading until the bus came.

Waffling over classes. )

I have been wanting to do a Jon snow drawing for a while. I was gonna give him a hairy ass but after the 7th episode of season 7 I was shown that he in fact as a smooth ass haha. Tried to do Kit Harington’s likeness as best as I could.

let's go.

Some more anime style Supergirl mock-up covers. Issues 3 has her Linda Lee identity with a japanese sailor school uniform and brunette wig. Issue 7 she meets Linda Danvers Supergirl from an alternate universe. The cover is based off of Supergirl 78 (2003).

An anime style Supergirl idea I’ve been playing around with for a little while in my head and finally put it into a manga cover idea. I was using the VIZ Ranma ½ volume cover ideas for inspiration.

After watching Sword In The Stone I really wanted to do some naughty images of Arthur.

Been on a bit of a Power Rangers kick lately especially with the new Ninja Steel series and the new movie coming out. I am in love with Brody the new Red Ranger I had to draw him along with Calvin.

Although I really don’t like drawing myself I wanted to jump on the #meettheartist bandwagon. My best attempt to make myself in an illustration.

Got in the mood to do a nude boys piece and 4½ hours later this was completed. Drawing people who actually exist is pretty hard and it was rather difficult with this one. I think I did Blake Mitchell pretty good out of all of them.

Marvel characters with watercolor backgrounds. I drew the Spider-Woman one in 2008 and decided to touch it up, color it and add a venom blast water color background. I’m pretty sure the famous pose where her ass is in the air was much after I did this drawing.

Since the release of the Volume 4 Supergirl Book 1 collecting the first 9 issues of the series I wanted to honor the New Earth Supergirls. I tried to do a little more detail with the fabric with this one and kind of do less detail in the hair then I would usually do.


Two bio pages. First for Linda Danvers the 2nd New Earth Supergirl and then Cir-El the 3rd New Earth Supergirl.

'Cause I can, mostly. And 'cause it is a vehicle for angst.
