Seriously, I am never going to finish this project if The Anatomy of Melancholy keeps making me have so many ideas. Given that I have exactly eight and a half hours of free time per week to work on this, I would say we are looking at approximately ten years until completion if I keep […]
Suggestions? It’s been keeping me up nights. Not my best work, but this week has been a little bit of an asshat. Instagram, anyone? Facebook?
No time for words or thoughts this week – and only about 20 minutes to draw – so here is a picture of Rosie, the feral cat who lives in our backyard. For some reason she is on the moon. It’s been a rough few weeks. Do me a solid and follow me on […]

I don’t really have time to watch TV anymore. Follow me on Instagram! I’m @devon_isadevon on there, until someone suggests a better name?

The Parallel Universe Theory (AKA the Many Worlds Theory/the Multiverse), Quantum Mechanics: Wow, there is so much fun and difficult stuff to read on this one, sadly I did not have time to read much of it this week. I will return to this post and spruce it up at some point. But here is […]
Hey look, I’m back! Welcome back, me. In this section, Burton describes the body’s five senses: vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. It really is not very interesting. Burton mentions “Scaliger’s sixth sense of titillation,” which would be interesting, but unfortunately he seems icked out by it and doesn’t have any fun quotes for us. […]
I wrote and illustrated this story for a little Instagram contest. And now, I really am taking a brief hiatus. See you soon! ps: As always, please for the love of everything good, follow me on Instagram!
