i am duckie, sometimes called caolan. i am 19. i am a georgetown uni student, and will hopefully remain so for the next 4 years. i am a poshingtonian. i am genderfluid. i prefer the pronouns "they," "them," "their," etc. i am pansexual, though also gray-asexual. i am an aspiring music douche and, ultimately, music therapist. i am a sex educator (which sometimes makes this blog NSFW). i am not particularly healthy in the head. i am an asshole. i am sorry. i am a social justice blogger. i am not sorry. i am genderfunkadelic. most importantly, i am a sexy lumberjack.

i try to comprehensively use content warnings, but if i miss anything or you'd like me to tag a certain type of post, please tell me and i will. i'd be real grateful if you would PLEASE tag trypophobia, body horror, images of damaged skin, and anything that includes the term "emo" (or just don't use it).

this, right here - this is my design.

 

i’m real grateful that my school is paying another student (one without a learning disability) to let me use their class notes, but it’s tough to learn music theory when half of the writing is in what appears to be turkish

Julie Dillon is currently ramping up for a re-imagination of mermaids with her project Catalog of Merfolk. It is a really interesting inclusive artistic project. I at one point in my life, was on the fast track to being a marine biologist until I decided “NAH THINK I’LL DRAW FOR A LIVING” (I am currently taking some emergency commissions if anyone is interested in donating/hiring).
Coming up with appropriate physiologies for their correct environment was really important to me. I ended up picking a deep sea creature, and it is pitch black down there. I wonder if some artists who do this might fudge it and create some unrealistic ambient light? Underwater phosphorescence is not bright enough to actually show a creature, which is the point of it. To send messages, place lures, or distract, without revealing yourself.
This particular creature can be found as high as the mesopelagic (twilight) zone, which allows for at times the faintest amount of light to shine down. If anyone picks something in the bathypelagic (midnight) zone or abyssopelagic (abyss) zone they might be in for some real lighting trouble!
The creature I chose to make into a merfolk is the lobed Bloodybelly Comb Jelly (which are not really jellyfish). The cilla on their bodies are what gives them their “comb” namesake, and by rippling the cilla they are able to move and create rainbow lights. What’s fascinating is its very deep reddish shades which make it practically invisible in deep water, so being in the epipelagic (sunlight) zone they would have zero chance of survival because they would be so very bright and visible. They are hermaphrodites, and capable of regeneration.
Let’s see how about a name … I dub thee Litebrite.

Had another go at Julie Dillon’s art challenge. Not sure how I feel about this one. Still unsatisfied with the composition, but I’m not sure how to fix it.
Deep sea merfolk.
Edit: Thanks for the tip, Julie! That helped. Though I still have trouble with it. I didn’t want her to intersect with her own body, so I had to change a few things, but… I should probably stop touching it, before I make it worse. ^^;

what if people named their kids when they turn 18 so the kid has a name that fits its personality

and their gender

SO I didn’t have much time but I still decided to take Julie Dillon’s merfolk challenge, because MERMAIDS. Anyway, this is how it turned out.
