Thoughts on the Banning of Parler and Trump

The idea that the shutting down of Parler and the removal of Trump from Twitter is an attack on free speech is bullshit, and I’ll outline why. In the U.S., violent speech is not protected speech. Incitement to violence or …

The Mandalorian Season 2 Review

In the latest Geeks Guide to the Galaxy podcast, I join Rajan Khanna, Erin Lindsey, and host David Barr Kirtley to review and discuss The Mandalorian Season 2 and the ever epanding Star Wars universe. Check it out here!

Morning Routine

Morning Routine

New art! “Morning Routine.” Before work, the lunar astronaut does her morning yoga routine in the peaceful greenhouse with a grand view of Earth. 

You can see all my past work on my Artstation page.…

Chapter Twenty-Four

Chapter Twenty-Four of Queen of Static is now live on my Patreon page.

Follow Daniel as he roams the Earth, hunting for a way to Sheol, while the curse of the Mikulalim seethes in his bones.

Follow Mashit as …

New Art: Afternoon Arrival

This one took me about a week to make. I’m experimenting with paintovers in Photoshop. That’s where you first render in 3D, and then use Photoshop to add layered effects. The idea is to make the image look painted rather …

New Art: Starship Printer

New art! In the future, starships aren’t built, they’re *printed*. Here, the company Coen Construction Megaprinters prints a CCM 2304 Photon Megahauler while several observer ships look on. CCM ships feature extensively in my “Space Trucker Jess” story. To read

Encounter on Venus

New art!  Inspired by the recent detection of phosphine on Venus, a possible sign of life, I created this new render. A NASA probe, bobbing in the atmosphere of Venus, comes upon an unexpected visitor in the clouds.…
