Pinned toot

:fediverse:

I'm a freelance artist and illustrator from Guatemala. I love animals and anthropomorphic art and that's what I work the most on. Studying nature is one of the joys of my life and hope to one day learn enough about nature so that I may translate that knowledge into fantastical worlds of my own.

You can find me on Instagram:
instagram.com/guephren/

On Facebook, Tumblr, SoFurry, and Deviantart also as Guephren.

Special new article by @JubalBarca for World Pangolin Day, as his "An Unexpected Bestiary" series does an extra-length special just on pangolins, their folklore, and how to use them in creative settings:

So I made a thing.

The green on this graph shows where chlorophyll b absorbs (the type mostly used by plants). You can see it catches light in two places. Near 450nm (the blue end of the spectrum) and around 650nm (in the red).

The two lines show the wavelengths emitted by LED lights. Blue is cool white and red is warm white. Both have a spike in emission around chlorophyll's blue absorption and broad emission over the red absorption.

In other words, this is why houseplants like LED lighting!

Also, if you put chlorophyll under UV light, it fluoresces this red colour. Which also happens to be my favourite colour.

(It's pretty much the same colour as solar flares too!)

An extremely rare set of 16th century knives, engraved with musical scores which allowed guests to sing at the end of the meal. Currently held @FitzMuseum_UK in Cambridge (photo by Johan Osterman).

WOOHOO! I DIDN'T COMPLETELY MESS IT UP!!

I had to quit for a few days because holy mother of OW, RSI and neck pain from sitting badly while carving.

But today I was able to get back to it, spent a few hrs hunched + wincing, and got the dang thang done at last.

Thing about lino printing, you're never sure how it'll turn out til it turns out; I spent most of the time fretting that i'd done a buggerup.

...I think it turned out ok 😁

One of my favorite paintings in this series. I can imagine sitting down on the grass and watch the clouds roll by throughout the day.

Nothing will stop me and my acrylic markers! Nothing!

Photos show 4 paintings with lots of scribbles on them, apparently made by markers. The paintings look as if there were graffity tags on them.

WIP, curating some doodles from my sketchbook & making into graphics to maybe use for stickers, merch etc

I'm not used to painting with these colors so it's been very stressful
