This drawing is just a little too much, isn’t it? Well, you know what else is too much? Just absolutely everything right now. So how fitting that today’s section is on fear!
Just practicing my people. Or cyborgs. I dunno. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference.
This section is mostly about how people eat different things. Some people think that the things that some other people like to eat are gross. Also foods (like frogs and snails) that make one person melacholic and filled with gall might not have that effect on someone else who is more accustomed to eating […]
The Iceberg Theory, Literary Studies:
“If a writer of prose knows enough about what he is writing about, he may omit things that he knows and the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them. The dignity of movement of an iceberg is due to only one-eighth of it being above water.”
— Ernest Hemingway, Death in the Afternoon
Poor Boxghost. He makes no sense. I’m not on Facebook much anymore, because who is? But you can follow my stuff on Instagram – @devon_isadevon
How far their power doth extend it is hard to determine; what the ancients held of their effects, force and operations, I will briefly show you: Plato in Critias, and after him his followers, gave out that these spirits or devils, were men’s governors and keepers, our lords and masters, as we are of our cattle. They […]

Oh what’s that, a unisex nursery wallpaper pattern?
Let’s look a little closer…
I dunno… I’m very sleepy again, and when I am very sleepy, I draw zombies. Why does a zombie have a box of seahorses? Why is he wearing socks? Shhhhhhhhh quiet now! Sleeping. Follow me on Instagram! devon_isadevon! Facebook too!
What’s your favorite month? Well, mine definitely is not February.
Make me to hear joy and gladness, that the bones which thou hast broken, may rejoice.
I really like a show called It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Happy birthday! Follow me on Instagram! devon_isadevon! Facebook too!
Happy New Year! Once again life has to take priority over art, so sadly I won’t be posting for a while. Hopefully I can get back To It in a couple of weeks 🙂 Here is a little mash-up of my most popular pictures from 2017, and see you again soon I hope!
If you have been following my site, it probably will not surprise you to hear that On Being Blue is a book that I like. The author, William H. Gass, died last week. So I drew a little tribute. Furthermore, the sense of passion or of power, of depth and vibrancy, feeling and vision, we […]
I would totally run into this guy’s mouth if he had Copic markers on sale. Please follow me on Instagram, devon_isadevon! Facebook?
Nothing too deep here, but I guess it is neat that humans can move around. Better than being a fungus or something. This moving faculty is the other power of the sensitive soul, which causeth all those inward and outward animal motions in the body. It is divided into two faculties, the power of appetite, […]
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?
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?
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!
Have you ever been the cactus in this situation? It is super annoying. But either side is pretty sucky. Petrarch was a fourteenth century Italian poet who established this thing called the Petrarchan lover. The Petrarchan lover chastely pines away for an unobtainable, perfect woman and writes a lot of poetry about her in the […]
Thanks so much to those of you who reached out with kind comments yesterday. I will continue to post this stuff and nonsense to social media, since that seems to be where it is at, whatever it is. I myself will just try to be on there much much much less I think. The […]
This is a drawing of how the Internet has been making me feel lately. Yes, I am the teacup monster. I am not everyone’s cup of tea. So there used to be a longer post here, but I took it down. To be honest, I wrote it thinking that only my mom, husband, and a […]
That’s right, more bat-shit crazy antiquated anatomy! Inward organical parts, which cannot be seen, are divers in number, and have several names, functions, and divisions; but that of Laurentius is most notable, into noble or ignoble parts. Of the noble there be three principal parts, to which all the rest belong, and whom they […]
Dissimilar parts are those which we call organical, or instrumental, and they be inward or outward. The chiefest outward parts are situate forward or backward:–forward, the crown and foretop of the head, skull, face, forehead, temples, chin, eyes, ears, nose, etc., neck, breast, chest, upper and lower part of the belly, hypocondries, navel, groin, flank, etc.; backward, the hinder […]
Yup, I drew another snail. Maybe tomorrow I will read past page 148. My daughter really likes snails, ghosts, and pink and purple, so maybe I will hang this on her wall. Is this a weird thing to hang in a child’s bedroom? I think this is a weird thing to hang in a child’s […]
The Entscheidungsproblem, Computer Science: This one was a doozy. But the main reason I started this website was to champion intelligence in a fun way, in the angry face of the stupidity that seems to be swallowing America. Well, trying to understand the Entscheidungsproblem sure as heck was fun. I emerged a little smarter even if […]
For 75% of the year I really love NYC. The other 25% is mainly about survival. While I have your attention, please follow me on Instagram. I am using the only five minutes of daily free time that I have to hone my skills as an illustrator. In this day and age, however, one cannot […]
I live in a gentrifying urban neighborhood. A new restaurant named The Gentry just opened here. I wish people would think about their words more. I probably will not eat there. Do you like seeing my pictures but clicking around on the Internet to see them is HARD? Follow me on Instagram, devon_isadevon! Or Facebook, […]
As always, an “actually real” transcription of a conversation with my kid. “Actually real” is another thing she says a lot that I love. She might have gotten that one from me, actually. We have absolutely no idea where she heard the name Dennis unless she has been sneakily listening to us watch It’s Always […]
