Hello hello. I neglected to do a reading update last month, because I was once again being busy with friendship and gay art around the end of the month. I’ll roll it into one for October, since my reading has slowed down a bit now we’ve hit autumn and my entire being longs for hibernation, anyway.
For now, though, an update on the ART I’ve been making recently! I have two collaborations with my astounding friend eli dobromylskyj that are going to be released into the world SOON, and I’m gradually vaporising with excitement for everyone to look at them.
I spent two weeks in Sweden earlier this month, and eli and I spent the entire time pushing each other further into an intense art fugue, burrying the entire kitchen table in chaos, making an extremely queer zine of… things that are not maps. I think you’ll probably understand it best by looking at the quotes we chose for the cover.
mainly by making them contain much more sex jokes than before.
The other project is YOUR LOVER IS DEAD, a two player one-shot ttrpg we’ve been working on for a while, about perceptions and (dis)connection between people in a relationship, and also, most importantly, kissing ghosts. It’s so close to done now — I did a final(?) proofreading pass yesterday — keep an eye open on Halloween!
It’s been a while since I posted some art! I bought this small watercolour sketchbook earlier this year, and I’ve been ocasionally painting in it, mostly when I was feeling stuck or bad about art, without too much sketching or forethought. When it’s all done I might scan all of it properly and put it up to download somewhere.
Hallo Freunde! Ich steckte eine Weile unter einem Bürokratiefelsen fest, der mir nicht viel Energie für schreiben oder sonst noch was gelassen hat. Das ist jetzt hoffentlich bewältigt, und ich kann langsam wieder was mit mir anfangen. Letztes Wochenende hab‘ ich es sogar geschafft, eine Idee abzusetzen, die schon lange in meinem Kopf rumliegt: Freitag Abend überkam mich ein Dwarf-Fortress-artiger, verzweifelter Drang nach Kunst, und ich habe auf dem Teppich in meinem Schlafzimmer kniend diese freundliche Meerjungfrau entworfen. Sie ist fast fertig, ich muss nur noch ein bisschen Glitter besorgen…
Hello pals! For a while there I was stuck under a bureaucracy boulder that didn’t leave me much energy for writing or anything else. That should hopefully be dealt with now, and I can start doing things again. Last weekend I managed to excrete and idea that had been lying around in my head for ages: friday evening I was overcome with a desperate Dwarf-Fortress-like urge to do an art, and crouched on the rug in my bedroom to create this friendly mermaid. It’s almost done, I just need to acquire some glitter…
