With all the hand-washing I've been doing over the last several weeks, I had excellent reference for re-drawing a panel from the Ling Master story "The Blue Catfish" for the upcoming "Ling Cycle" collecting Ling Master stories old and new. The new version is much more graphic and gross.

Ah, the joys and perils of frisket (masking fluid). The clients are a family who want their faces in a famous painting that has a black background. I masked the boundaries of the figures before laying down the background wash, which required two washes. Peeling up the frisket afterward not only lifted the pencils, but in some spots messed with the paper texture. Hope it won't ruin the piece.

There's still time to sign up! My talk for the Economy Club is tonight at Ristorante Gran Gusto in Cambridge. Social hour at 6, dinner at 7, talk at 8. meetup.com/Economy-Dinner-And-

If you're in the Boston area next Monday night, you're welcome to listen to me talk about Cagliostro and the Medem family meetup.com/Economy-Dinner-And-

I got a last-minute panel space in this weekend's Arisia (Science Fiction Convention)'s Art Show!

Real social structures have some cost to discoverability, with increasing layers of cost/friction for each additional attempt to uncover more information. This friction is beneficial—it dramatically cuts down on casual busybodies, griefers, and nosepokery.

But online spaces are built by techno-utopians who think there's no such thing as too much of a good thing and continually push their platforms to uncanny levels of compulsory discoverability. All the negative consequences be damned.

@ChrisTalleras I can understand him not trademarking it right off the bat, as it's not cheap and he likely had no idea it would get this big. Had he done this after 1-2 years, it would've still caused drama and potentially killed the event.

There's no good decision in this situation. Either he loses his ability to stop corporations from taking advantage of Inktober, or artists lose their ability to sell Inktober books/merch. He can't have both, but he's trying to make it out like he can.

My apologies to my friends, patrons, and colleagues whose holiday cards arrive late. Some of them — including all the ones to my business associates in Latvia — I didn’t even post until yesterday, so it’s questionable whether they’ll reach their destinations before the end of the calendar year.

Harvard's former Holyoke Center is now Smith Campus Center, fully remodeled from the old layout. A bunch of other Cambridge artists and I will be vending there at the Pop-Up Holiday Market, starting tomorrow -- I'll only be there through Saturday. cambridgema.gov/arts/Calendar/

What does it mean when a user has 5 "follows", but when you click it it says they aren't following anyone yet?

Thursday through Sunday is the School of the Museum of Fine Arts annual benefit Art Sale. I'm offering a piece in the sale, the art for my 2019 holiday card. smfa.tufts.edu/events-exhibiti

Folks, am I right to be suspicious of follow requests from folks who don't have any toots of their own? Or am I just being paranoid?

I've never done Inktober, but I thought I'd close out the month with a gouache-on-black-paper drawing inspired by the music-hall song about Ann Boleyn. youtube.com/watch?v=-eX-K_CHd0
