Pinned toot

Hi there, Merveilles! My name is Eden (They / She) and I'm an artist exploring complex feelings with simple shapes.

If you'd like to see more of my work, you can do so at helveticablanc.com

I'm excited to be a part of this instance! 💞

I suppose one downside is someone could just...sell my work without making any changes. But I intentionally don't put any super-high-quality images up on the internet, so maybe that's a wash?

I've been mulling over making all my art a more permissive version of CC. Currently I'm thinking BY-NC-SA 4.0, but I'm considering dropping the NC if only because I feel that artists should be compensated for their work — even if it builds on the work of others.

I DO wanna' keep the SA in there to prevent exploitation from larger corps or unscrupulous folks, tho. That'll hopefully keep the "pass it forward" vibe I'm trying to capture.

Am I missing a big downside?

The Holy City of Wormwood. Located at the heart of the Empire, the eternal tree gives Mind to all who drink or eat from it. The Nōmes guard it, and go to great lengths to keep animals away.

Wormwood

My dream would be to have something like a netbook (that 10-inch format was so cool), but something where I understand what's going on inside so I can repair instead of replace.

Lately I've been feeling the urge to learn more about computer basics: building one, trying to make Linux work, etc. Maybe I should pick up a raspberry pi and just start noodling. 🤔

If you've ever wondered what I post on Patreon, I've made a typical post available to the public. I now post process videos along with exclusive sketches every Saturday afternoon!

Lying awake and idly imagining a computer that I'd actually enjoy using.

A tablet / laptop with an e-ink screen, solid software for drawing and music, and an OS whose interface is a little tamagotchi-thing who lives on the desktop. No docks or start buttons. Just a friend.

For every NFT you bid on, I'm personally going to make your lava pool in hell 10º hotter.

A little something different today — here's the cover art for a little music I made to go in the background of my art process videos for Patreon. Links to the track below!

Big news, folks: I've started making short videos demonstrating my process! You'll see little snippets and demonstrations from time to time, but full videos of my process will be available exclusively on Patreon!
