Artist and author Minna Sundberg created a beautiful illustration called the Tree of Language. A tree is often used as a metaphor for language and the origins of language but usually aren't too interesting.
Mina's version is amazing and detailed just like her two comics that she wrote and illustrated. You can purchase a poster of this tree of language here. Here is more info on the language itself.
Here first comic titled "A Redtail's Dream" can be found here, and you can read it online.
And her most recent work is titled "Stand Still, Stay Silent" can be found here and you can read it online.
They are both beautifully written and illustrated.
Smalland is a survival game on a much larger scale. You've been mysteriously shrunk to the size of a pebble and thrust into the great wilderness. Before you can begin to try and figure out why, you'll need to find food, water, and shelter - surviving is a whole new game down here.
I have to say that after creating Grasspeople I'm ready to play Smalland! I really want to check out the game play perspective from this view. The game is made by Embu Games and you can check it out on Steam here. Watch the game trailer below for more info.
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
I am finally getting around to scanning my own artwork and uploading it here. Below you will see my entries this year. I will update this as I scan more work.
This is the Terrace Falls, near Quadnoc, many miles away from the Grasslands.
The indigenous creatures known as the Cheks or Chicken Warriors were searching the black river banks for a small flower known for its healing power. There is safety in numbers because this is home to the Grizzivolous which are vicious hunters.
Grizzivolous is hungry and hunting on the banks of the Black river.
Exhausted. Monks ongoing search for traces of his family led him nowhere. Thoroughly exhausted, he decided to nap in the grass fields not far from the Black river.
As Monk fell into a deep sleep, he began dreaming under the stars about the simpler times of his youth.
More coming soon...
