Astigmatism sucks because—unlike normal bad vision—if you don’t have a pair of corrective lenses on hand, the difference in ability between your right and left eye leads to hefty eye strain. For me, I can’t go five minutes without corrective lenses. I’ll get terrible headaches and nausea if I try. Even if the prescription is slightly off, the headaches attack within an hour.

Makes having glasses/lenses really valuable. So of course I stuck that trait on poor John from Umbagog, just so he can have brutal headaches if/when his glasses go missing or are in need of repair.

This especially sucks seeing as his way of cooling down after a hard day is studying up on theology. That teeny tiny text is NOT friendly to hard-working eyes. Especially not by candlelight.

100 Follower Special Slash Fic Celebration: The AllyMcBeal/House fanfic that nobody asked for or wanted (nsfw)

clintpereira:

            Ally McBeal was shaking her butt, dancing around in her office when a long-faced, stubbly man limped in.

            “So, a doctor walked into a lawyer’s office…”

            She turned around, screamed, and fell over her chair. “Ow. Who are you and who let you into my office?”

Never noticed it before now, but the Witch from Brave has some whisker action going on

This is the first time I’ve seen a woman with facial hair in any film (much less an animated one) without her explicitly being either a bearded lady or a thinly veiled trans-misogynist joke.

Granted she’s a witch, but she’s a delightful and non-evil character with a lot of fun animation and personality in the short time she appears in the film. I wanted more of her.

Props, Pixar.

ART OF FABLE BOOK! Respond and Poll

For a while now, my 2013-2014 Sketchbook has been poked and prodded at in preparation for digital and physical release. Come OCTOBER, 2014, you can own a high quality digital sketchbook of my work. And a physical sketchbook would be soon to come.

Here’s a few small previews of what you might expect to get inside this book
    

Some images have been seen on the internet before, but never at this level of quality. 
Some images, previously scanned and shown online, have been enhanced with more artwork added to the margins, or color added.
Everything inside the book is 100% traditional. It includes concept work for upcoming projects, life drawing, and general silliness. There’s animals, landscape paintings, fantasy creatures, and horrible monsters.
Some imagery is uncouth, gorey, or contains nudity or mild sexual content. So don’t give to your 5 year old babby nephew for funzies.

If you’re interested in purchasing a physical copy, please let me know if you’re interested in a softcover or hardcover version. What size would be ideal for you. And what kind of price range would be realistic for you.
HERE IS THE POLL

NOTE: Subscribers to my PATREON at PATREON.com/FABLE will receive the digital copy automatically at the $10 tier. 
Physical copies of book will be rewarded at the $20 tier as supplies last.

Looking up ergonomic chairs to replace my worn out office chair.

Wow like, all the things that would solve my persistent back problems are way out of my budget ($1k>). And the things in my budget ($200<) are too similar to my current 3~ year old chair to be worth buying. But I need to fix this chair problem because it’s making it impossible for me to make a living wage right now. The living wage that puts the solution-chairs out of my budget.

Not that I mind Hannibal’s interpretation, but I seriously can’t find anything about wendigo that involves elk. I remember getting introduced to the concept at a pretty early age since it’s like, a local legend (I’m from NH, Algonquin culture crops up a lot in class and in general). But I remember no deer aspect mentioned until that Hannibal show.

Did I just miss something when I was younger and digging through mythology texts? It’s not like Wikipedia is the end-all-be-all of resources. They don’t mention the connection between Lamia and goats I recall from books. But where can I find this connection that’s not just references to Hannibal and DnD?
