One of my favorites. I painted this late at night with horrible lighting and feeling really down in the dumps.

The Tree

Some art I did of an area I use to play in when I was younger.


Parrying Dagger


The perforations within the blade were meant to provide elasticity, preventing it from snapping during vigorous parries. The serrations were arranged not for producing an unpleasant wound, but to "catch" the adversary's blade.

I can never decide whether or not to put photos up for sale in my shop, and I feel like putting all 20 million I take would be just a tad absurd, so I'm declaring a new rule. If a photo gets 15 notes on waterfall and/or 30 likes on instagram, I'll put it up for sale. Because I am nothing if not a pro at tricking other people and machines into making my decisions for me xD

Moss covered paths between scarlet peonies, pale jade mountains fill your

rustic windows. I envy you, drunk with flowers, Butterflies swirling in your dreams.

The light is golden and the trees are lit from within. In autumn, you feel beloved by the earth, all its inhabitants, for entire afternoons, sometimes.

Ellen Welcker, from “Any Grieving Mammal”

(…) Where do you open?

Where do you carry your dead? There’s no locket

for that—hinged, hanging on a chain that greens

your throat. And the dead inside you, don’t you

hear them breathing? You must have a hole

they can press their gray lips to. If you open—

when you open—will we find them folded inside?

In what shape? I mean what cut shape is made

whole by opening? I mean besides the heart.

Maggie Smith, from “Heart“
