FOXBENDING

Because I felt almost silly with happiness as I walked home from the station in the last of today’s wondrous sunshine, here is a silly picture I drew while relaxing in my brother’s flat in Russia:

THE LAST FOXBENDER.

No, I don’t know why she has alarmingly long arms, but I do know why she’s a stick figure: I can’t draw bodies for shit. She also has lines for eyes because I can’t draw those either.

I will not be giving up the dayjob writing any time soon. =D

Speaking of, back to The Bone Queen! Which is going excellently. This may also have contributed to today’s happiness.

THE LAST FOXBENDER.

*snerk*

Also, in case you haven't seen this: "Nomads and Networks: The Ancient Art and Culture of Kazakhstan." There are ways in which the exhibition's argument is sort of a yes, duh—"These excavations dispel notions that nomadic societies were less developed than many sedentary ones"—but it still sounds incredibly cool.

By these enigmatic symbols, a prewriting culture communicated its worldview from a vast and ungenerous land that it could never fully tame—any more than these people of the horse were ever ready to settle down.
*makes grabby hands across the ocean*

That said, if I do wind up passing through NYC on the way to Wiscon, the exhibition will still be open.

Thanks for linking me to it! However, it has just now gone log-in-access only, and Google didn't cache it while it was available. ;_;

She's awesome!
Thanks! =D
