May I emphasize the absurdity of living In which there are so many people Who don't get common sense Or mix up pride and confidence or Mix up judgement and understanding And think there are walls between science and God as if the cross is not a polygon. I cannot believe that people are inherently … Continue reading Meditation on silliness
Showcasing illustrations and art which tells a story I drew this a few weeks ago, expecting to make something like a poster for an over-the-top action anime because I was listening to a song from an over-the-top steampunk action anime. Clearly that didn't happen. The story idea that first came to me when drawing this … Continue reading ART | Steampunk sketch

She and my dad were talking to me about transferring back to my old brick-and-mortar school, which had a better curriculum than my current school but was filled with people who would not stop swearing and made inappropriate conversation.

Hopefully come June, work will become much more consistent as school is cleared from my schedule. In other news, expect another piece to come on the 13th. It's kind of weird but I like to think that I did … Continue reading News

Bird song on rainy days Where the little leaves sway in the rain Walking home on the quaint little bays It's like hearing the fairy bards play Quiet and peaceful, not quite harmonical The birdies twitter and play In the rain all the day Their throats an entire parade And in the rain It's like … Continue reading The Odd Little Orchestra
