Day 17 of Inktober. “You know nothing Jon Snow.” I missed yesterday. I was just too tired and I figured I rather skip a day than submit a crappy drawing. #inktober #jonsnow #agameofthrones #asoiaf #housestark #thenightswatch #winteriscoming
A graduate student has created the first man-made biological leaf. It absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant. He did this by suspending chloroplasts in a mixture made out of silk protein. He believed it can be used for many things but the most striking one is the thought that it could be used for long distance space travel. Plants do not grow in space, but this synthetic material can be used to produce oxygen in a hostile environment. (Video)
Day 12 of Inktober. This time I wanted to do something that had a little more ‘fine art’ feel. It felt good, I may do a few more along this line. #inktober #brownbear #grizzly #kodiak #PentelBrushPen #bear
X-Men #113, page 17 by John Byrne & Terry Austin & Glynis Wein. 1978.
I remember my dad buying me this issue and a copy of of Mirconauts #7, by Mantlo and Golden, at a convenience store when I was a kid. I couldn’t stop looking at those books. Now I had read comics before but it was with these two books that my life long love affair with comics began.
