Entry to the commune is a $1000 down payment, then is free as long is you contribute labor to sustain the commune. To be considered for this opportunity, you must meet our strict criteria for admission (which we keep to ourselves). So, in four sentences or less, tell us how you would contribute to this community. We are particularly interested in people with practical skills of gardening, carpentry, plumbing, and masonry, but we could also use all around creatives, DIY makers and users of various steampunk contraptions, and engineers, scientists, and theorists (people smarter than us) who could debunk all this stuff as foundation-less, or make the whole idea better.

new cartoon detail

This is a new cartoon in progress. It's is a fun little detour from my more meditative drawings. It is a little self-contained fantasy community, inspired equally by Richard Scarry and Sim Tower.

Division cont'd 2

These are new drawings that fill in gaps in my newest series. Eventually I'd like to make enough drawings to depict the transitions between the major doubling stages, having each drawing be one frame in a smooth animation of cell division.
