The Curse of Mittavinda

A new piece from this month's Tricycle Magazine.  This is my adaptation of one of the Jataka Tales, ancient Buddhist parables, many of which involve many more demons than people have been led to expect from Buddhism.  Here's the original story too.

According to some people, two of the things in this picture have never hurt anyone, and are lovely traditions that ought to be continued.

Awesome Con Aftermath

A few weeks ago, I went to Awesome Con, DC.  I'm just now recovering enough to post a couple of the commissions I did that weekend.

Doping in Sports

The idea here is that doping in sports is tearing up the basis of the games in the first place.  Poker is exciting because there are only 4 aces.  If everyone can print one, what's the point of playing.  The game is no longer about skill, it's about which team is packed with the most steroids, and the game is no longer between teams, it's between players and the officials.  Not for the audience's benefit, either.  For their own pockets and egos.

Snakebite Progress

Immediately after being bitten by a snake, take a close look at the bite area.  It's not necessary to draw in too much detail.  After discerning what sort of bite you've gotten, try a number of cures.  You never know which one will work, so ask for a second opinion.

Swelling may occur, as well as black lines.  This is normal.

The lines may appear to spread.  Ignore that.  Noticing this is the first sign of snakebite madness.

You may start to see colors.  This is the second sign of snakebite madness.  Continue as planned.  Ask for a third opinion.

At this point, you are either dead or cured.  Assume you are not dead, and drink a lot of tequila to celebrate.
