This is an illustration I did for the August 2014 issue of Popular Science Magazine. The assignment was to show a scifi take on human aging in the future. I wanted to do something relatively positive, so I drew a lady whose life has been been prolonged through cybernetic enhancements and augmentation, so she gets to spend time with her great-great-great-great grandchildren.

This week marks the release of the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons, a role-playing game that traditionally existed to create a safe space for neckbeards to pretend they’re fighting orcs. But as hi…
Well, it’s official. (Even though we kind of already thought it was.)
I can’t decide which is the better response to this:
1) What do you mean again?
2) I was into Dungeons & Dragons before it was cool.
Some brief thoughts about ethics.
One way to do moral philosophy is to start with your moral intuitions, figure out how they can be made internally consistent, make them internally consistent, and then proudly say you have an ethical system. Then you go around telling people that if they don’t…
y’all are too, too gotdamn foolish out here.
This can’t be real
So nice of them to list their names so prominently, isn’t it?
Master JinoraShe’s the first airbending master in over 100 years to be anointed surrounded by airbenders.
Book 3 finale is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! So many feelings!

Depression is humiliating.
If you’ve never been depressed, thank your lucky stars and back off the folks who take a pill so they can make eye contact with the grocery store cashier. No one on earth would choose the nightmare of depression over an averagely turbulent normal life.
It’s not an incapacity to cope with day to day living in the modern world. It’s an incapacity to function. At all. If you and your loved ones have been spared, every blessing to you. If depression has taken root in you or your loved ones, every blessing to you, too.
Depression is humiliating.
No one chooses it. No one deserves it. It runs in families, it ruins families. You cannot imagine what it takes to feign normalcy, to show up to work, to make a dentist appointment, to pay bills, to walk your dog, to return library books on time, to keep enough toilet paper on hand, when you are exerting most of your capacity on trying not to kill yourself. Depression is real. Just because you’ve never had it doesn’t make it imaginary. Compassion is also real. And a depressed person may cling desperately to it until they are out of the woods and they may remember your compassion for the rest of their lives as a force greater than their depression. Have a heart. Judge not lest ye be judged.

This is seriously the most accurate description of depression. Wow.
so here’s a bit of a treat. This is a piece I did that has never been shown in any capacity ever. This is Unused art I made a few years ago to along with the Captain American Premium Format statue from Sideshow Collectibles from the first film.. It was inevitable never approved in time to be produced along with the statue, but I’ve finally received word I can share it, so at least there is that.
