This is a piece of rage art, titled: gtfo corona.
Born out of frustration of not having been able to visit my family and home-country in over 15 months. Originally the figure was supposed to be kneeling hopelessly expressing my own feeling of helplessness, but the more I painted the angrier I got which resulted into something entirely different. I hope this piece will help spread some catharsis.

Glorfindel and the Balrog.
I'd be hard-pressed to find a visual that haunted me for the most of my creative life like this one did - when I first read The Silmarillion at 15 I always wanted to draw it, only lacked the skill to do it. Now, years upon years later, I can finally make it happen. Based on the description of the fall of Gondolin in The Book of Lost Tales - I wonder how many ppl read it? Have you, by chance? Or am I the only nerd around here?
#caturday pic of my cat Tony. He claimed the sports bag I haven't used for months since the lockdown started, now he smells like boxing gloves and old sweat. Have a cozy weekend everyone 🐈
Woke up thinking about this collage zine I made a couple years ago and handed out at SPX. You can download it for free here:
It's the last day before thaw, so i got all fired up about it thinking I'm gonna do icebath again!! Bc there's snow it'll be awesome! Right so i stripped to my swimsuit thinking yea let's do this! aaand I couldn't get in. I stepped on it - shit didn't budge. Then i managed to chip something off with the baton and it was solid 10cm layer. I feel like I got...cockblocked by ice or something xD i was so looking forward to it! I've been training cold resistance the whole season...for this letdown xD
Will you remember
The space I filled
The shape I took
The tongue I spoke
The red I flushed
The bridge I built
To burn it next
The kiss I tore
Off your living flesh
The touch I gave
The lies I told
The truths that made
Me often choke
The time we spent
In each other's embrace
Will you find the way
To those little memories
When they are being buried
Under the snows of yester-years?
A poet friend is asking for advice from published authors about the publishing process - does anyone in the #writing community have anything to offer?
Trying out the Mastodon client #TheDesk on KDE. Its GUI design reminds me of software of the late '90s in that it's riotous, colourful and chaotic. I feel like I've just passed the point of no return on a waterslide.
There's so much to look at! And wonder what this button does, wonder why that group of elements are hanging out over there. Find the placement of this element partly amusing and partly endearing.
It is so unbelieveably fast. Gawd I miss software like this. https://thedesk.top/
covid aftermath I'm going through now
It's been month+ since I've been diagnosed and I still have the most annoying cough. Im terribly out of shape (not surprising) but since I do a lot of sports it's just hard to cope with.... especially since it was exercise that helped me calm my mind and blow off some steam. Now I just do a couple of the least strenuous yoga stretches and am drained, plus angry at what I've been reduced to. It's just perfectly disheartening. 👌
