People, it’s time I tell you about Siphonophores.
They are an order of colonial sea jellies in the class Hydrozoa. Colonial, meaning their bodies, though seemingly one orgamism, are constructed of many miniscule individual organisms. most of ya’ll know the Portuguese Man O’ War, with its iconic bell (the floaty bit, it looks like a helmet) and its reputation for being a scuba-diver-entangling, murderin’ douchebag, but fewer are acquainted with the impressive and creepy (read: cuddly + adorable) Praya dubia. It’s one of the largest invertebrates in the world, it’s bioluminescent, and its sting could paralyse and/or kill you.
I found a little diary with cream colored paper that I’d never actually used! So I’ve decided to start using it as a little sketchbook to draw in every morning! Here are some of the ones from the past couple days that I particularly liked. Every page is dated when I finish the stuff on it so I can keep track of progress. :>
I’ll try to upload stuff from this pretty regularly if there’s anything decent. Everything will be tagged #skeptic sketchbook.
whenever i see people talking about how progressive and not sexist kill la kill is, all i can think of is kate beaton’s “sexism is over” comics
