  • Florida broke the 10K new cases barrier yesterday. DeSantis is still saying won't go back on reopening. Disney World is still scheduled to reopen next week. So... yeah...
  • Damn, that was good! I went through it faster than I would have liked because I was anxious to see how it turned out, but I think I'll first let it sink in a while, then rewatch season 3, then maybe just watch the whole thing all over again. I've tr…
  • Wow. It's just astonishing to me that people still refuse to do such a simple thing like wearing a mask.https://youtu.be/j7MeoP80XS4
  • On Wednesday, Florida had an all-time high in new cases at 5,511. Just 2 days later, we have 8,942 new cases. Orange County saw the biggest jump yet at 1,062 cases.
  • This also blew up in art circles over the weekend. He's a Magic the Gathering artist, runs an online art school, and has a decent measure of internet fame.https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/statement-regarding-noah-bradley-2020-06-22…
  • Damn, that just sucks. I did fan art portraits of several Expanse characters a couple years ago, and he sent me a nice message. I was hoping he was a nice guy, but that’s not looking likely.
  • It's the last Wednesday of the month, so it's Bird Whisperer Project day! June was the Greater Roadrunner. Mine is black and white acrylic ink on toned paper with a touch of colored pencil.MEEP MEEP! I have a bunch of new stuff I'll be sharing soon.…
  • Florida is driving me nuts too. The governor won't issue a mask requirement and has repeatedly said that under no circumstances will he consider closing again. My county has a "mandatory mask" order with no penalty or enforcement, so it's as good as…
  • It definitely is. I was quite thrilled to find that Illuxcon announced really early that they wouldn't be doing it in person, but instead they are opening it up for online talks and an online art show. It's a really small con, and pretty specific to…
  • JaimieT said: The DragonCon 2020 drama is interesting to follow. I had written it off as not happening, but it looks like it might? Something about how the Con will go out of business if they cancel. And anyone following this thread since its…
  • Wow @cdrive! I thought Florida was in bad shape (well, we are, but TX and CA are worse off obviously). That is scary. Stay as safe as you can. Yesterday they issued a mandatory mask order in my county (Orange). The governor won't do anything, but at…
  • Do not fly to Florida, friends! They tested 500 airport employees at a single airport and 260 were positive, but they won't say which airport it is. It's a pretty safe bet that it's Orlando's main airport (MCO) since it's referred to as "Central Flo…
  • You would think so @Dee wouldn’t you? They are also starting up Trump rallies this weekend, which will be hotbeds for coronavirus spread, because it will be a point of pride for them not to wear masks or social distance. It will be the same at the R…
  • Actual quote from yesterday:"If we stop testing right now, we'd have very few cases, if any," the president said Monday during an event for seniors at the White House. So yeah... this is just going to get worse and worse.
  • Dee said: 112,000 dead, 600-1200 new dead every single day, and the US government seems to have just forgotten about it.  Yep. Dealing with a crisis like this is difficult, expensive, requires massive coordination between governmental age…
  • Yikes. Florida recorded 2,581 new COVID cases yesterday. Every day lately we seem to breaking the previous day's record. Over the last seven days there have been 10,794 new cases. According to the Miami Herald:"...new cases in the state had consiste…
  • This was really Gizmo... I mean, Guillermo Buillermo's season!
  • This guy makes some incredible stuff, and even if you don't need the info, it's just fun to listen to him explain his process: The Crafsman
  • This is great. Part one was also pretty great, but it was at least a few weeks ago, which is what, like 100 years ago in 2020 time?Explaining the Pandemic to My Past Self Part 2
  • Florida is having a rise in cases (1317 reported yesterday, highest since mid-April), as DeSantis continues to push reopening. Bars and movie theaters can reopen tomorrow, and some of the theme parks are reopening tomorrow. The rest plan to open in …
  • That's some cool work! Two of my favorite painters do some similar loose cityscape work and I can just stare at these forever:Jeremy MannLindsey Kustusch
  • Congratulations on finding a solution @JaimieT! That sounds like a cool idea for a book too! I don't know if there's a named subgenre for supernatural/mythic beings in the regular world, but I love it. "American Gods" by Neil Gaiman, "Good Omens" by…
  • Antibody tests are not turning out to be reliable at all (wrong about half the time, according to the CDC):https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/05/26/health/antibody-tests-cdc-coronavirus-wrong/index.html?fbclid=IwAR0Op5B170HL--ZJGBb_M7H1D0qNmuKUXYgqyTmM0ey…
  • BrooklynMD said: I've been on pretty solid footing for the last 2 and half months but tonight I feel like it's finally caught up to me and I'm losing my mind. As crazy as it sounds, the light at the end of the tunnel of the pandemic is someho…
  • Thank you @Michelle. I didn’t realize how much better the rework was until I was looking at work-in-progress pictures and put the previous “finished” one beside it. I went to a great workshop last November and got helpful feedback from some really a…
  • Since I'm unemployed, I've been really focusing on my painting skills and getting ready to get a Patreon going, along with a print shop. I'm working on a bunch of new paintings, but I decided to sit down and really work on my painting skills, take m…
