Torsten Gellrich's theme for the 1989 game Final Countdown has, I think, been repurposed a number of times. I first heard it as the music in the intro of The Pirate's Friend, a crack/serial disk which I must have found on a BBS in the late '90s. It remains my favorite of all time. modarchive.org/index.php?reque mastodon.sdf.org/media/Gn3kYyF

Also, look at this drawing: what!?

Great composition!

NOT the easy way to draw that scenario.


Beth and Joe Krush were such superb illustrators. I just walked by this edition of Emily's Runaway Imagination and recognized their work on the cover. They use this high horizon line a fair amount and these illustrations are composed so well. Exemplary work. mastodon.sdf.org/media/bN3oDMd mastodon.sdf.org/media/W1Z7vSR mastodon.sdf.org/media/1qGRFwv

I'll sell you a signed/numbered giclée (that's artiste jargon for a nice ink-jet print) for $35 USD. Limited to an edition of 25. It's about 30cm square.


Help me out, kids. What should I put on the screen of Oscar's Macintosh? mastodon.sdf.org/media/uDXsyFQ

I've been ruminating on a story setting that takes place on a planet of anthropoid for years. Here's a from 2012. mastodon.sdf.org/media/tWBfT4F

Lookin' through some old line-art and found some illustrations that I completely forgot I did. Here's one from a few years ago, for cereal:geek magazine, with Venkman and Futura from The Real . I love that I made Futura look about fifteen years older than she's supposed to. I don't recall if this one ever actually went to print. mastodon.sdf.org/media/QdT5pR7

Check out the really intuitive interface of this ( 8-bit PSG) sequencer I've been putting together: mastodon.sdf.org/media/0BD6qIg

Happy Software Freedom Day! On , I'm working ... but I'm working on an for a Big Magazine, using a free operating system () and free graphics package () as I always do. mastodon.sdf.org/media/7hs9-6C

Reading an article which begins by stating that there has been "astounding" recent progress in AI/ML, and cites a 2015 Google chatbot which "could not only convincingly interact with humans as a tech support helpdesk, but also discuss morality..." (see attached). Is there anyone over the age of, like, 20, who can look at this conversation and not immediately see ELIZA with a bigger data set? mastodon.sdf.org/media/_GI_6hv

The only time I took a serious crack at . I should really do it again some time. mastodon.sdf.org/media/msZNRcz

Graphite can be quite interesting as a tonal medium atop ink. But doing big gradients with pencils and graphite sticks is boring. Time to buy some powdered graphite, I think!

Ted Nelson turned 80 yesterday! A few years ago I drew this rad picture of him. He didn't like it.
