who caught and sang the sun in flight

I write a webcomic called The Bright Side, and I like flowers.

Doodles from the first day of class.

Some girl in geo had a really cool hat so I drew it and then she sort of came out the bottom of it too.

I keep feeling the need to draw personifications of various concepts. Especially in physics and philosophy. In physics I draw stuff like gravity and flux. This one’s from philosophy, I think she’s meant to be law or order or maybe justice?

Also the word ‘harpy’ got mentioned in that same philosophy lecture so I drew Em as a harpy again. Much better legs this time.

Martha Wainwright - Proserpina

Martha Wainwright | Proserpina

Proserpina, Proserpina, come home to mama, come home to mama
Proserpina, Proserpina, come home to mama, come home to mama now

I shall punish the Earth
I shall turn down the heat

I shall take away every morsel to eat
I shall turn every field into stone
Where I walk, crying alone
Crying for

Proserpina, Proserpina, go home to your mother, go home to Hera
Proserpina, Proserpina, go home to your mother, go home to Hera now

She has ṗunished the Earth
She has turned down the heat

She has taken away every morsel to eat
She has turned every field into stone

Where she walks, crying alone
Crying for

Proserpina, Proserpina, come home to mama, come home to mama
Proserpina, Proserpina, come home to mama, come home to mama now

My moss terrarium that I made with my Grandmother’s old tea kettle that she gave to me. In the terrarium are mosses, grasses, rocks, and clovers. One clover decided to sprout through the spout :)

Found some more four leafed clovers on my way to uni.

Anonymous said: If you're going out to illustrate and enjoy the natural world, have the decency to leave it as you found it. Painting on rocks and removing pieces of the Grand Canyon makes me cringe. The National Park Service considers that vandalism and there are consequences if you are caught. It's Federal land. If you enjoy it, protect it!

Yes, I quite agree, and it was thoughtlessly done, all of it. I actually really regret that now, and not cleaning it off; it would have been easy to get off, and I was going to, but I didn’t get around to it and at the time thought ‘oh well it’s such a minor thing’ but I know those minor things always add up, and the Grand Canyon has so, so many visitors. I was actually really impressed with what a good job the guides did of maintaining everything and sorting out trash and all the things. Unfortunately I really can’t fix what I did now. And with the rocks. I really didn’t mean to take those, that was truly an accident. But I should have been more careful. I’ll just have to remember in the future.
