phishing, people suck
I just got an email from IT* that people are formatting phishing emails to look like coronavirus infection control information. They’re targeting healthcare systems.
Seriously, who looks at an emerging pandemic and thinks “opportunity!”. Fuck those mother fuckers sideways.
*this is also being reported elsewhere, e.g., Wired
The kickstarter for my Rooted in Trophy game, Climbing the Witch's Tower, is now live. Check it out for fairytale horror, some fun collaborations, and potentially me making a full tarot deck.

Make my birthday, sign up to my Patreon for one month for a single dollar. Then quit the subscription after helping out some disabled queer who's constantly at their wits end!
If I make $10 it'll be the happiest most profitable day of my life in this year of our cat 2020.
PSA: Using reference in art is okay! It is nothing to be ashamed of, *especially* if you took the reference photos yourself. It doesn't diminish the worth of the work.
It is also totally fine to be (heavily) inspired by other artist's work! It is a normal thing to learn from others.
Thank you for your attention.
I've got lots of little schemes to pay off our legal debt. They don't all involve sharp knives.
Hey, so these tarot block prints have been because of a #ttrpg project I have going live on Kickstarter this Friday.
If you like fairytale horror, I'd really appreciate your support. I have been working really hard on the writing and think this should serve as an enjoyable reading experience as well as an actual game. Plus, I have some really cool stretch goals with friends (and if I need another, I might go ahead and make my own tarot deck 🙀 )
To-day Iain Banks would've been celebrating his 66th birthday. Sadly, he was lost to us in 2013.
I only met Iain once, and it was a very short encounter. Bizarrely, it was in the tinned fruit & veg aisle of a supermarket in Fort William. As both of us were just making some quick purchases before rushing off elsewhere, I didn't have time to tell him why he was actually one of my friends. Not long afterwards he announced he had terminal cancer.
