Friendly Kushite sphinx is glad to see you.
Carlos notices Cecil seems down after returning from the station, so he cheers him up.
Pencils for the top half of my entry into the Little Nemo tribute book, DREAM ANOTHER DREAM. Cats and Craftsman interiors, I have no trouble drawing. The typography needs a little help, but that’ll all straighten out in inking. It is bizarrely difficult not to put the interjection “oh” in every panel.
AKA Bloodroot. Awesome little plant. I wish I had some in my garden.
YOU OLD COOT
A 1914 photo of Ishi, the last native North American to live completely outside of modern Western society. In 1911, with no surviving family members, he emerged from “the wild” near Oroville, California. He was the last member of the Yahi, themselves the last surviving group of the Yana people. He died in 1916 of tuberculosis.
Ishi simply means “man” in the Yana language; when asked his name, Ishi responded: “I have none, because there were no people to name me.”
For an incredibly kawaii series entitled Invertebrate Sleep Habits, Japanese artist Hiné Mizushima (previously featured here) created this awesomely cute octet of needle felted sea creatures, each of which is tucked into an adorable little bed.

(Its neck isn’t even white)
