I did a little cartoon of myself in the style of Gorillaz.
These are really simple bound sketchbooks! I’m not a trained bookbinder/maker, I’ve just sort of figured these out by trial and error and looking up stuff online. There’s plenty of room for improvisation but this is the best method I’ve found so far in terms of time/cost/effort/appearance.
You’ll need paper, cardboard, cutting implements, needle and thread, a scrap of cloth (optional), a little bit of glue (also optional) and paint, markers or ink to decorate with.
(tutorial under the cut because it’s long)
I will do this! Someday…
WOW! They’re back! Well, they’ve been back! If you picked up Volume 5, you got to see this already! Or even the pdf of the Anime Club color ebook (now back on sale on gumroad along with the original B/w version) you saw it. Well now everyone can see it! The last 4 pages will show up on Friday. A Clean 10 page story, just like the good ol’ days.
This is hilarious.
Hanaq pachap kusikuynin, a hymn to the Virgin Mary in a Quechua language. Composed anonymously in Peru in the early 1600s, possibly by a Quechua convert to Christianity, or by the Spanish friar who published it.
I hope you don’t have friends who recommend Ayn Rand to you. The fiction of Ayn Rand is as low as you can get re fiction. I hope you picked it up off the floor of the subway and threw it in the nearest garbage pail. She makes Mickey Spillane look like Dostoevsky.
Flannery O’Connor's unambiguous opinion of Ayn Rand in a 1960 letter to a friend.
Flannery O’Connor is the writer who died early whom I most wish had not died early. Even more than Douglas Adams.
The terrible symphony of the 20th century.

Some RGB images of galaxies that I took in 2012 using the school telescopes.
I did all of the image stacking and subtracting of bias, darks, and flats by hand in MATLAB, but they still turned out better than expected, considering the terrible observing conditions in central Philadelphia. The coolest part was that I got to see supernova SN2012aw! I had to find a reference photo to prove it, though. No, that’s not just another star, that’s an exploding star.
