Saluton! My name is Flip, I slap a keyboard until interesting things happen
I am learning Esperanto (for only about a year now), I play and DM tabletop roleplaying games, I'm the good kind of anarchist, I fiddle with old hardware, and I dream of retiring as a cactus farmer
PSA about going to the ER right now
If you’re taking someone to the ER during... all this... make sure to, at some point, get a phone charger and clothes and whatever for the patient
If they’re admitted, they won’t be allowed any visitors (nope, not even their spouse). So get stuff together for them and have it sent to their room please
My white count has improved significantly, they think they can get me out of here today so long as I can handle solid food
Which is a huge relief... it’s no fun being in a hospital where you can’t even see your partner and I especially did not like the sound of the colostomy

That’s my normal
Here’s where I left off around midnight
Need to finish this pass, create a new brush, smooth things out more, see where we’re at
Still pushing this forward... it's a lot of work!
For now, I can explain a bit more
This is a generative piece that I hit a dead end on for a while, then I decided to take what I had and paint with it
I use Procreate on the smaller iPad Pro with Apple Pencil. I make my own brushes from scratch
The goal for this piece is to be a backdrop... maybe printed on a large canvas, maybe as wallpaper on devices, maybe both
Can you jam with the console cowboys in cyberspace?
