Literature
Saints of San Axolotl
Echo birds are as common as muck, and about the same color. They’re found only in San Axolotl, where they scurry along the paving stones and under the tables of the street cafes, through trash-clogged back alleys and down the walks of rooftop gardens, looking for scraps and seeds. Once you leave the city, though, the echo bird population tapers off within five miles, and the only specimens anywhere else in the world have glass eyes and are wired to their perches.
Echo birds are not mimics. There are all kinds of mimics in the bird kingdom, from the pygmy mynah to the rare and savage Cassowary Macaw, whose repertoire generally consists of the screams and curses of its last unfortunate victim. Mimicry is no longer a particularly impressive trick. Any old parrot, with time and patience, can learn to whistle the national anthem and make obscene comments, or both at the same time.
The echo bird, however, does something quite beyond mimicry. If you encounter an echo bird, all you will s

See, the trouble (I find) with updating the journal is that it's usually a post that has some time or context attached to it.  Something like "I'm not dead" or "I' almost finished X" or what-have-you.

And a couple of weeks go by, and it looks tacky and unfinished--especially since any comments I have about art I post usually go with the art, not on the journal, and more often than not whatever I'm saying I'll "post any time now" has been up for a while already.

Therefore, I am going to write a post that I think reflects certain essential truths, and not worry about updating it until they change or I find I start having more to say.

  • I like horror.
  • I paint and draw and do a little digital work, and my coloured stuff never looks as good as my black-and-white or greyscale.
  • I take longer than I would like to do art (especially comics, which I don't put on DA since it annoys me to not have them show up in a smooth order), and take longer on the last 10% of a piece than on the first 50%.
  • I hardly ever write off anything I've started as a bad idea.  I do let it sit around unfinished and then worry about not finishing it.
  • I would give my eyeteeth (but not anyone else's) to have Richard Upton Pickman's command of anatomy.  Given that he's fictional, this is a little difficult.

That's everything I can think of right now.
