State of Idaho plans to poison up to 4,000 Common Ravens. 
Justification: Ravens prey on the eggs of the imperiled Greater Sage-Grouse. Yet of 19 reasons for the grouse’s declining numbers, predation by other wildlife comes in at #12. Providing protected areas and requiring sustainable land management are the most important ways to conserve the grouse, not killing avian predators.

Mesoplodon stejnegeri. At the Pratt Museum.

It’s a start!
With this, I’m ready to draw the skeletons of mammals. Especially that beaked whale in the foyer.

This is Jupiter, and at least one of the Galilean moons.

The moooon.

Mars, shot via binoculars and an iPhone.

Made in 2009 for a now-defunct art gallery, @alaskanime provided the colors, I did the design/pencils/inks.

If memory serves, the theme was something along the lines of “When you were 13…[come up with something that would have appealed to you in an image].” Some day, I’ll get back to this for real. (I am working on it as time permits; just background stuff.)

Some attempts to capture the moon with an iPhone 5s and a pair of binoculars on a tripod.

Mars didn’t come out at all, but was a pretty visible dot—almost a disk.

Word is that Dave Trampier has died. And thus so has a small part of my childhood. 

This is confirmed.  He died Monday, March 24.  Apparently he was planning to make his first local convention appearance in decades in just a few weeks.

Love his art.

Three days remain.
My brother and I will be at Emerald City Comic Con in the Washington State Convention Center at the end of this week. You’ll find us behind table EE-6 in the artist alley. I’ll have a variety of prints, buttons, charms, and a few small handmade goods. Stop by and say hello!

If you’re going, say hello for me.

Very mild progress. This is the only art I’ve touched in what feels like weeks.
