Beast of the Delta
It seems that whenever I'm dreaming or intentionally meditating, I always seem to begin at a river delta. It's one of my favourite landscapes: not too open, not too enclosed, and plenty of water rushing past my feet. I wanted to illustrate it, but I have some work to do it seems...anyway, I'm happy with the pose. And yes, Aurasyr does have an extra point on her horns since my last drawing of her =P
Sorry this is kind of a bad picture, but I don't have time to actually scan it before I flee into the wilderness again (at least until the 31st).

A Tale of Outer Suburbia I
I've lost faith, the forest's changed,
My stomach's empty, I'm feeling faint

I've lost heart, the forest's scarred,
I hear no birds, just TVs and cars...

I've lost faith, the forest's changed,
My stomach's empty, I'm feeling faint

I've lost sight, the forest's died,
The brambles are bare, and I'm hollow inside
Each breath rattles like dice in my chest, each breath gambled, unwinding till death...</i>

~ Hands Like Houses, A Tale of Outer Suburbia

____________________________________
This is something I conceived of a while ago and sketched out to chip away at while I was waiting for various things. Finally finished it today at my grandma's house.

The "I" is in the title because this is only the first of many pieces I feel I will do for this song, because it speaks to me in many ways that can't be expressed by only one picture. 

This one is (hopefully) obviously a reflection of the violence human habits do to the creatures we share the Earth with. It may not be clear because my trash-drawing abilities are derp, but on the antler is a plastic bag, and there's a plastic pop can holder stuck around his leg (PLEASE take the 2 seconds it takes to cut any closed loops on those things before throwing them out, I have personally witnessed seabirds strangling because of them). On his back is a spilled patch of oil, as he tries to outrun the spread of it on the ground.

A classic granola message, but I'll keep shouting it til the day I die.

Thank you for viewing!

Status update? What is this, Facebook? No statuses, we Journal like men 
And holy crap it was the most amazing thing I've ever done. If you didn't catch it before, I'm working with a master's student, researching one of the most long-lived tree species in my province.

We stayed at a wildfire base for the week, but couldn't go up in the helicopter due to a spring snowstorm. So we hit a few of our sampling areas, which was really cool. It basically involves parking the truck just off the highway, then climbing up on the ridges of mountains where our species of interest is. 

So we waited out the weather, until it was clear enough to go up in the helicopter for a survey. I can honestly say it was the highlight of my working life, if not my life in general! We took a route that led us over some pretty secluded and spectacular spots in the Rockies, and along with that, we got to land in remote wilderness locations on a run with the wildfire fighters and control team. 

I'm always completely at home in the air. I get carsick, but never have I experienced motion sickness in the air. What scares other people silly makes me grin like a Cheshire cat; like when there's air pockets and sudden elevation loss. 

Anyway, that aside, it looks like I'm gonna have the best summer of my life. I can't wait to go back for more!!

No problem! :D I never quite got around to re-watching everyone from my SerpentScorch account, so I'm sorry for not doing it sooner!
