#WhatLiesAground  

After 2½ years of redo attempts from myself, and several recent requests from other furry contacts on G+...

Proudly introducing Samson Dixwell, boy raccoon wonder, Procyon lotor minor — all over again. With a brand-new face, better ears, and redesigned mask...but the same old shirt from last time. Previewed during the tail end of +Katherine Cook's hangout last night; now out in public for the first time. From the forthcoming children's novel Unspooled, and the two prequels currently in development at this writing.

Created between February 28 and March 8 on SketchBook X, across several sessions. HSB values: 0/0/25 (mask), 0/0/64 (upper mask), 0/0/85 (outer ears/rest of face), 0/0/75 (neck), 206/80/70 (outer pupils), 339/83/91 (inner ears), 0/0/0 (inner pupils/eyelashes/nose), 27/74/57 (shirt), 27/74/52 (collar).

Don't worry, folks. While not up for adoption, feel free to use him in any way you wish. (Permission for image-board upload is granted, as well.) Tutorial coming up in a matter of days; future artists, illustrators, and animators, I'm giving you something to learn from!

Enjoy what I've made, everyone...and I'll see you soon on Tsū!

Day 1062

Good morning, folks. Still hitting the mall—after nine a.m.—and went through those stockpile hopefuls and Tsū highlights as promised. PC time's almost running out, so I'll do one pick from the Hot stream while I'm at it.

And that's it for this nychthemeron. No Empire trades, no Antenna highlights, no collection setup, and no mall trip till overnight and morning tomorrow. (The stockpile hopefuls and Tsū network roundup are on their way, though.)

Stay tuned during tomorrow's run, when I dish out another furry pic from a member of FurAffinity. Also, I'll try to reach out to +Elizabeth Johnson and +Mike Spinak for my Unspooled needs, if they're available.

For now, it's off to the gift map on +QGIS, where another bunch of elevation lines awaits to be drawn.

This is your fellow Captain speaking. Till we meet again, it's diè wåde, _ovwa and out...and до свидания!

And as we end this run...

By way of one +Karl Shook at 3tags (circling/subscribing to you on Friday after the draw), here's to yet another venue you'll be seeing Unspooled on. (Even though they skew more towards sci-fi/fantasy/horror and mystery/thriller—but they still have my target genres, children's lit and adventure.)

Three more posts to go tonight; this next pick actually mentions +Brewster Kahle's IA.

(Via +Ben Zimmer [or so the next one attests]—via +Laura Gibbs—via +Tiago Silveira, whom I found in the comments of one of the G+ destiny debates +Karl Louis linked to)

Time to take the prequel announcement relay to 3tags, too. (And so begin the Aground reruns there.)

Giving my Tsū network a heads-up about my absence there. After that, I'll relay yesterday's prequel announcement. Worth another cent or so, we can only hope.

Now I'm ready to draft the timeline for my Unspooled series—the five prequels, plus the core story—on GDrive. (Wonder if +Mike Spinak's available so that I can discuss prequel #1's storyline with him?)

And with that, time to log off. Resuming this feed with the Antenna highlights, after I return from the mall; remainder of carryovers to follow later. Take care, see you soon...and toodles!

"Spot 'em Hikers" Vatnajokull National Park, Iceland

Would you go for a hike on Iceland's largest glacier?

I took this photo last 2012 and until now, I'm still left in awe of Iceland's beauty and grandeur. Can you spot the hikers? wink emoticon Cheers!

Two more posts to go; pulling a leftover out of my OneTab backlog's hat.

Time's starting to run out, so we're reaching back to a waiting list candidate, first thing.
 
"The Old Barn Stormer"
Imagine if you will, a by-gone day when this fellow flew his "Jenny" bi-plane from town to town, landing in a farmer's field offering airplane rides to the locals...
I did this one with charcoal and graphite.

Introduction
"It is not about what is good or what might be popular, it is about what I feel like sharing. It's simple that way."

Author, publisher, digital rights advocate, Web "nomad", and pop-culture geek (for hire) residing in Waterbury, CT; originally from the Commonwealth of Dominica. "Winner" of 2012's National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) with a project originally titled Marigot Magic, which now bears the name of Unspooled.

Responsible (through his Constitution Books imprint) for an Amazon-exclusive re-issue of Gadsby: Champion of Youth, a 1939 lipogram by Ernest Vincent Wright. Wrote an accompanying behind-the-scenes essay, Skipping Fifth, especially for this edition. (A revised version was published in February 2013.)
 
Currently:
- setting up a QGIS map of Rogatia, the fictional Atlantic island country featured in the Sevton Saga (which itself is still in development);
- setting up the Dixwell Dossier, a Referata site dedicated to the Marigot Magic project.

Also on Bitcoin (albeit very infrequently), thanks to Fred Conez/(e)FREEZECONE on Empire Avenue. ID: 1CkSXjzcPQ559AtN9dE9GQwNgsuULeLihn.
