I made an image for a future blog post explaining the Fediverse.

Can you trap a galaxy in a crystal ball? I tried! Back in 2018 I took this image of the Milky Way through a crystal ball from ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.

These are some stylized landscapes I made. They all feature a waterfall.

Hello, scholar social! Here's my #introduction

I'm here from the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology dept at the University of Toronto and the Palaeobiology dept at the Royal Ontario Museum.

I'm a PhD Candidate studying growth and life history in extant and extinct cats, using both observational data (collected by others) and data from the growth record preserved in bone (collected by me)! See below for what a fossil Smilodon bone looks like under the microscope 👀

Hello Mastodon art people! I’m Julia, an illustrator and naturalist from Germany. I’ve quit all social media a few years ago because addictive algorithms, ads, infinite scrolling and tracking surveillance were killing my creativity.
Mastodon is likely the last social media experiment I’ll try. Here are some birds for you, because although I’ve left Twitter, I love drawing birds.

Taking a break from the afternoon break to bring you some of the most exciting new #science results from the #Exo4 #Exoplanets conference! I'll tell you why I'm excited about these in a thread!

⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

(1) A detection of a proto-planet in the TW Hya Disk. It's currently somewhere around the size of Neptune, but still growing!

(2) 30 new Hot Jupiters from TESS! (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite)

(3) a sub-Earth planet around Proxima Centauri, our nearest neighbor! @asmasca

I don't use watercolour all that much, I mostly work with pastel, (either soft or oil). I do enjoy the change of pace it gives me from time to time, and it of course allows for lots more detail on a small scale than pastel can.
This is a #watercolour painting of an #echeveria plant. I used Gansai Tambi Japanese watercolours and bamboo paper for this piece.

I suppose I should write a self introduction. My name is Rachel Thorn. I'm a cultural anthropologist, and have studied manga & comics from the perspective of gender for more than 30 years. I helped create the Department of Comic Art at Kyoto Seika University in 2000, and taught in that program until last year, when I moved to the newly created Faculty of Global Culture. I have been translating manga into English for 32 years, and 5 of my translations have been nominated for Eisner Awards.

The Wikimedia Foundation has decided to stop accepting cryptocurrency donations. The decision was made based on a community request that the WMF no longer accept crypto donations, which came out of a three-month-long discussion that wrapped up earlier this month.

An older #collage #poem that I haven't posted over here yet.

The thing I really enjoy about collaging is the constraint it imposes... Writing poetry from scratch with no constraints just isn't fun for me, but I love the challenge of trying to create something interesting from snipped-up junk mail!
