MOTU '85, page 7

I was visiting a friend when I started the art for this page, so I did it digitally. It came out pretty well, and it's just super convenient for me to work digitally, so I've stuck with digital production for the last few pages.

MOTU '85, page 6.

Not at all happy with how this page came out. Yikes. Oh well, it gets better!

So:

$ uname -rms ; uptime
Linux 4.4.227 x86_64

22:19:23 up 70 days, 13:49, 9 users, load average: 0.07, 0.08, 0.02

Slackware Linux is sane Linux.

Two virtual machines running on this Slackware server - NetBSD 9 also has 70 days of uptime and OpenBSD 6.7 is up to 22 days (due to the latest syspatch).

@craigmaloney I learned 68000 assembly *after* I learned 8086 assembly (which was my first assembly), and I my reaction at the time was, "Wow! So CPU instruction sets and memory models don't have to be confusing and painful to use."

A spaceship landed and an alien emerged.
"We are sorry," it said, its words broadcast across the world.
"The last few years we have used your planet as a refueling stop. We depleted your reserves faster than you could regenerate them."
"Reserves of what?" sometime called.
"Hope."

Some cover art I did back in 2013 for the Volt 9000 album Conopoly. I saw this in my archive today and was stunned to recall that this started as a relatively small (8" square, approx.) traditionally inked drawing.

The elves had vanished centuries ago; fading to myth for many.

But my family knew better; each stone with a hole in it, each perfect fairy-ring, and every quiet spot slightly out of step with the rest of the world was evidence we'd passed down. There were other things, but those were the most common. We were taught to avoid them, but I couldn't.

Elf-touched spaces just called to me, particularly the reference sections of libraries...
