can we please stop doing this to artists? if you like what they did and think it’s beautiful, respect them. don’t do this. it’s so obnoxious and rude and i hate seeing it because i’ve had people do this to me before and it’s a horrible feeling let’s just not do this to artists okay

This is on the same plane as “Your art is so good it makes me want to kill myself/quit drawing.” It’s not a compliment.

Death’s-head Hawkmoth
The name refers to any one of the three species (A. atropos, A. styx and A. lachesis) of moth in the genus Acherontia. These moths are easily distinguishable by the vaguely human skull-shaped pattern of markings on the thorax. These moths have several unusual features. All three species have the ability to emit a loud squeak if irritated.
The two of the tree species named after the Moirai in Greek mythology (the Fates) Lachesis (allotter) and Atropos (unturnable). The word Styx (also meaning “hate” and “detestation”) is a river in Greek mythology that formed the boundary between Earth and the Underworld.

Even though i cannot stand most of the insects in this world (i only like butterflies and bees) i found this particular animal pretty amazing. Still, only in photos.

Preorders for Still Turns ended last Friday. Thank you to everyone who bought a copy! I have begun to ship orders out earlier than planned; the first batch went out today, and the next batch has been packaged. I hope to have all orders shipped out by the end of September.

I’ve also had a few people ask me about regular orders: they will become available either late this year or (more likely) early next year.

When your order is shipped you will receive the usual notification email from Storenvy. I hope all packages reach their destinations safely!

Yana KlinkColor works blushing warm and full of dense detail, monochrome works open, smooth with uncluttered grace—Yana Klink’s pieces possess a wicked sort of whimsy, taking pleasure in discovery and knowledge, but also feeling a little sweetly mischievous, as if any grasping for the forbidden is all in good fun.
