What's black, six-legged, and adorned with quills along its back? That's what I asked myself the first time I saw it. It's big, too, almost as tall as my two-story log cabin. It's been visiting ever since I first built on the property and moved in. I live by myself in the countryside, the nearest town a half-hour drive at least.
I might sound oddly casual about it, but I've just gotten used to the thing coming around. The first time I saw it was when I was napping in my rocking chair on the back porch. I stirred and looked out across the yard, and there it was, gazing back at me. At first, I didn't realize what I was looking at. It was standing such that it appeared as a tall stump, the only deceiving quality being its bright green eyes glowing even in broad daylight. When the creature noticed it had been spotted, it turned and lumbered away into the depths of the forest behind my property. Goosebumps erupted all over my body.

Hey everyone!

It's been a while since I've checked my list of watchers, and I just discovered I have exactly 250 watchers now. I know that's a small number to some, but to me it is humbling that 250 other human beings (minus the couple of deactivated accounts) appreciate my work and hopefully derive some inspiration from it. I know many of you may be watching me from the days when I posted more paleoart, whereas now I mainly post speculative biology, and I thank you for growing with my swaying focus.

I hope my work continues to entertain and inspire those of you who enjoy it, and I am always open to comments, suggestions, or just saying hi!
