A botanical image of the poisonous tree English Yew.
Every part of the tree is toxic due to it’s taxine alkaloids, although the fruit and seeds are the most poisonous part. Consumption of this tree can lead to symptoms, including dizziness, dry mouth, dilation of the pupils, weakness, an irregular heart rhythm and possibly death.

Sometimes I work in traditional media! Avemimus skull in pen and ink. I’m making this into an intaglio print at some point next week.

This is the moment when you realize that your six year-old MacBook is on it’s last leg. It’s probably a bad sign when your laptop is working so hard to crop an image that it actually whines internally (and repeatedly freezes Preview, iPhoto, and Photoshop). This is also the moment when you realize you haven’t backed your computer up.
Also, I wanted to thank you all for your support. I have gotten a flood of reblogs and followers this past week, and am inspired by your responses!
