It’s amazing to realize just how many subtle ways one can be exhausted or wakeful. Sometimes simultaneously.

I like Tumblr as an excellent stream-of-conscious portfolio. I would love something like that for my site along with a more organized portfolio section. Ultimately, I want to be able to tag stuff and have it displayed individually and beautifully with a β€œproject” listed under more broad portfolio sections alongside the stream where β€œlatest” work flowed.

Rust is cool, and I want to learn more about it, but don’t really have any good ideas to that would make good use of that knowledge. Not to say there’s anything wrong with learning something for learning’s sake, but I can appreciate a more concrete motivation.

Jumping Spider 

Cute jumping spider I saw today. Haven’t seen one in a while, and this one was skiddish as they ever are. Launched a web off my hand to jump rope to the ground.

Tried a character design in the same program to decent results. A mix of more organic design with inorganic. I’m having trouble taming the shape blending, but it’s still great fun.

Modeled a mysterious device using an early version of MagicaCGS, a new SDF modeler and renderer from the individual responsible for MagicaVoxel. Working with SDF is very fast and a lot of fun. Can’t wait to see where the program goes.

We are hosting a kind of cooking event this week! We encourage each one of you to share one recipe between now and May 23nd.

I sometimes cross-post stuff both here and Twitter. I try to make the content different. I just can’t help but share my plants in both places because they cheer me up and are entrancing.

Still going, what a show off! They’re kind of pretty now. I haven’t looked up this particular plant yet.

Balancing in my head whether to just deal with jackyll and GitHub Pages for a simple portfolio or go all the way, rent a cloud server again, and stumble over myself setting up the personal wiki I’ve wanted to put together in some form since I first saw Devine’s mastersite.

Thought this would be the perfect place to ask: Does anyone know a simple and quick recipe for ego death? Hit me up, thanks!

If I met God I would thank them for mushrooms which are amazing and delicious.

Rediscovering #infrared #photography. It's been a few years, but a friend of a friend offered a converted camera for next to nothing, so I couldn't say no.

A rare bit of self-promotion: I've got a new zine: Eidolia! It's a series of illustrations and machine-generated poetry, and I'm hoping to refine the process over the next couple months. It's currently only available for patrons, but I'll put it up on itch.io next month!
