The charity bundle sold 1,092 copies and raised $3,665.12 after transaction fees from Paypal, Amazon etc., which were fairly high because of the small size of transactions. The average donation paid was $3.79, the highest I think was $30.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed.

Youngest has just watched a movie. I'm not sure which one, although it sounded more like Beauty and the Beast than, say, Coco, both of which are on their list for the weekend (they pulled four off the shelf). Their comments at the end:

"Can I just complain about the number of scenes that involve snow covered woods, or a white wall. And a scared horse"

Thanks again to [personal profile] eller for the markers, which have given me the gift of paying more attention to values! XD

Today's Starfinder session was very productive for drawing! I have been playing with the idea of doing a small hexarchate art zine so I figured why not take a stab at some art.

Calendrical rot.

I have to thank (a) The Non-Designer's Design Book (especially the material on alignment) and (b) Jay Edidin for helping me think about ways to incorporate text into art. Jay pointed out to me (when I admired his hand lettering, which is amazing) that since I draw, hand lettering is basically drawing letterforms. Which sounds really obvious put that way but I hadn't thought of it!

This second one I penciled during the game session and finished inking at home:

Captain Kel Cheris: The war never ends.

For lagniappe, here are some sketches of [personal profile] telophase's cat Nefer. Drawing her was an interesting challenge because the only cat I draw regularly is Cloud, who is quite differently proportioned. Cloud has a large-ish wedge-shaped head and a short tail with a kink in the end (probably from an injury, the vet tells us), while Nefer has a small head, a long body, and a longer tail proportionally.

Plus assorted other sketches (man) behind cut: Read more... )

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

[53/365] Lego movies

I started to furiously write this morning about the inadequate response I got when I emailed my disability advisor about the lack of a sighted guide at the beginning of the semester. But then I ranted a lot at my DSA "study mentor" about it when I had this week's meeting with her a couple hours later, so I've got that out of my system. And like I say, I'm so bored with this being a Holly Complains about Society Disabling Her blog.

So what else? Andrew and I went to the cinema for the first time since...Deadpool 2? Ocean's Eight? Something like that. End of last summer, anyway.

He wanted to see the new Lego movie, which I wasn't that enthused about, after the "girl does all the work, guy gets all the credit" story of the first one, but I was still happy to go and it even addressed that very thing. It was really fun. Andrew's been either working flat out or totally spoonless since he started this podcast so it was nice to get to do something fun together.

I loved that Maya Rudolph had a bit part being basically the same character she plays in The Good Place, and I thought I recognized the voice of the queen but I didn't guess it was Stephanie Beatriz. Andrew was hoping for lots of Lego Batman content and I thought he got it but he still said there could've been more. I said he'd probably think the same about The Lego Batman Movie.

I haven't been feeling that well the last couple of days, which it took me a little while to realise was some extra virus and not just a bad day, but it happily seems to be improving already, and I tidied up this fic, inspired by my 100 Elements prompts and me making graphics for these particular new OC Elements last week. (I blame Tin's casting on [personal profile] swordznsorcery! ;-p)

After thinking about it - in a vague, back of the head, sort of way - last night I finally decided that I'm not going to go to the 2nd and 3rd conferences in July, which are back-to-back in different cities in the Netherlands. I really would love to go, not only because I would like to go to the Netherlands but because I usually enjoy the first of the two conferences and I had a really good time at the last meeting of the second of the two.

I have no choice but to go to the 1st conference in July, which is in Paris (ugh. I know, not the popular opinion of Paris), as I'm presenting a paper at a thing which has turned into a huge fucking deal and keeps spawning related projects. I'd really rather not go but what can you do. Unless there's some sort of last minute emergency, I'm going.

But I'm not presenting at the other two and it's a second trip to Europe in the same month, with airfare, 2 weeks lodging, 2 sets of conference registration fees, and 2 weeks of cat sitting (which is not cheap). Not to mention 10 days of precious vacation time. I was feeling stressed about the whole thing. Paris is stressful enough, given the huge fucking deal it's turned into.

I've got enough stress with all the writing projects that are on-going. And now maybe I can take a week this summer and go on a research trip to New York state instead of putting it off until next year. And maybe I can buy a slighter nicer sleeper sofa or futon for the bedroom that I want to turn into an office.
