The Cicada Shell AdventureSo I went on a hike with my kids and ran across this cicada shell, which the cicada leaves behind after it molts. Looks just like the insect but it's empty.The kids wouldn't go near it.One more look at the faces of terror...And now the video of their reaction when I gave them an impromptu up-close look.Here's what a live one looks like:

Feeling stressed? You need a Therapy LlamaPhoto by Jen Osbourne.Every few months, Marisco and N.H Flight of the Eagle – showered, dressed up and accompanied by Niki Kuklenski – are welcome guests as they take a tour of the nursing home, stopping at each bed to kiss the patients or have a hug. Marisco and N.H are trained therapists, and they are llamas.“It’s a treat, watching the llamas walk down the hallway,” says Jack Houston, one of the residents. “It’s amazing that there’s another life out there.” For some, it’s the most cuddling they receive in their time at the center; for others, it’s a welcome novelty, relieving the boredom of life in an institution. The llamas leave a profound impression. “I had never met one before,” remembers Holly Barto. “It was heaven. Just emotionally – to be
Some amazing Great White Shark photosPhotographer Dana Allen took some insane photos of great white sharks off the coast of South Africa. Below is my favorite... Check out the flying tooth. Sharks routinely lose some teeth in a kill, which are quickly replaced. Some sharks use up over 30,000 teeth in their lifetime.
Art is in the eye of the beholder

Lucid DreamingDreams are your brain processing memories and storing or trashing them. It's interesting how a small mention during the day of something can bring it up in a dream.There are some "hacks" you can do with dreams.Because they are so vivid, if you semi-wake up during a dream, you can still remain dreaming while controlling your dream. it's called Lucid Dreaming. (wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucid_dreaming)I think the funniest part is, How do you tell if you're dreaming or awake? I've wondered that in dreams before.Apparently there are ways: looking in a mirror (dream mirrors end up blurry), looking at the ground below you (in dreams it's exaggerated) and flipping a light switch (in dreams, light levels dont change).It's pretty interesting if not wacky stuff, but I think we can all vouch for having a dream that was very vivid in which you were aware it was a dream. Or vivid dreams that you were not aware and woke up pretty happy it wasn't real.Once you're aware it's not re

Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
