Random from DARK DISNEY



I work with "traditional" media. That means when I create art there is a physical canvas, sculpture or piece of paper with me all over it.

In answer to a number of recent inquiries here is my business pitch.

My idea of a "request" is a commission to create art for money (in US Dollars). Please do not ask me to draw something unless you are willing to pay for it up front.

My standard comic convention rates are as follows:

$10.00 monochrome sketch card
$15.00 color sketch card
$20.00 for 8.5 X 11 sketch
$35.00 for a "simple" 8.5 X 11 1 character color work

(all plus postage)

More ellaborate commissions are negotiated on a per case basis.

double @ price if you want "mature" content i.e. nudity
I do not do hard core or kinky stuff.


Which category of my works would you like to see more of?

Sealion Skull by LEXLOTHOR
Sealion Skull

More examples of my osteological photography can be seen in my DA "Paleo & Sci Illo" gallery:…

This is a sealion skull in on display at the Burke Museum in Seattle.

Otariids are very interesting carnivores. They evolved directly from bear-like arctoids during the Miocene. The phocids (seals) evolved from an earlier carnivore radiation. Sealions retain such features as external ears and nails on their toes. The nasal conchae of this taxon are as densely packed as those of sea otters. For an animal that pinches off its nostrils while submerged, it does a lot of olfaction while its head is out of the water

It is interesting to note that sealions have greatly enlarged the lateral upper incisors to a point where they effectively form a second set of canines. This individual displays growth cessation lines in the enamel of its teeth. This indicates a period of hardship during its puphood that suggests that this was a wild individual.

Superearth in the Cold by LEXLOTHOR
Superearth in the Cold
More of my astronomical and space travel art can be seen in my DA "Space Art" gallery:…

So-called "super earths" are a quandary. The discovery of  rocky extrasolar planets many times more massive than our Earth has sent planetologists back to the blackboard.

One:  They should have seen them coming. Just because there are no planets of this class in our own Solar System, doesn't mean that they shouldn't have been theoretically predicted half a century ago. Their existence should have been obvious.

Two: Now that they have found them astronomers are not thinking them through to logical extremes.

Massive rocky planets have been observed in many star systems. They may be capable of developing and sustaining CHON based life as we know it. However, they are looking in the wrong place for life sustaining superearths. Here is the dirty low down. Most superearths will be too hot to support life. Most of them should instead be considered Super Venuses. A planet five times the mass of the Earth is going to have a gravity well that will hang on to lots of primordial atmosphere. Depending upon the availability of certain elements in the protoplanetary disc that produce them, its atmosphere could be packed with rarer constituents such neon and argon. It will also be less likely to lose hydrogen due to disassociation from larger molecules caused by solar radiation. This is how Venus lost its oceans. A superearth is going to have crushing barometric pressure at its surface. When you compress a gas it gets hotter. Oceans wouldn't boil away because the triple point of water is raised to hundreds of degrees beyond 100 Celsius. Only extremophile microbes can survive under such conditions. Within the habitable zone of a star, a superearth would be heated to Venus-like levels where lead would melt at the surface. If you want to look for a superearth where creatures such as ourselves could survive at the surface you have to look OUTSIDE the Goldilocks Zone! If you wanted to have a habitable superearth in our own Solar System you would have to park it beyond the orbit of Mars!

Recent computer simulations have indicated that Mars should have accreted enough mass to become a superearth. The reason it did not is because Jupiter hijacked its potential mass supply out of the accretion disc during an earlier phase when it had an unstable orbit closer to the sun. This happened over four and a half billion years ago.

To get a habitable superearth, it has to be orbiting its star in a rather narrow band at which an equilibrium between incident solar radiation and intrinsic atmospheric heating occurs at the triple point of water at sea level.

There is another complication. Such a superearth is unlikely to have any exposed land at sea level. It would probably have global ocean hundreds of kilometers deep. In this case the ocean would be stratified into exotic forms of H2O unknown on the Earth or rare compounds such as ammonium anhydrate. The bottom of the water column would "freeze out" into forms of solid water that are hot ices such as ice-VII, X and XI. There may be hot superearths with oceans where water is maintained at moderate temperatures tens of kilometers below sea level. To have a superearth where the tolerable layer of water is near the surface.

I this illustration I depict a rare habitable superearth with a global ocean that is liquid at the surface. The top levels of this ocean abound with hydrocarbon life forms that replenish the atmosphere with oxygen and resupply the greenhouse gas methane. It is seen from the surface of its earth-sized moon that is a frozen ice ball.

As an interesting aside, a habitable superearth in orbit about a red dwarf might orbit far enough out that its rotation is not tidally locked with the star.

Pachycephalasurus wyomingensis Skull by LEXLOTHOR
Pachycephalasurus wyomingensis Skull
More of my dinosaur photography can be seen in my DA "Paleo & Sci Illo" gallery:…

Pachycephalasurus is a Late Cretaceous ornithopod dinosaur. It is only distantly related to the better known contemporary hadrosaurs. This taxon is distinguishable by the solid bone dome that develops during life on the top of its skull.

This cast is on display at the Dinosaur Museum of the Dakotas in Dickinson, ND.

Journal History

The Jet City Comic Show in Tacoma, WA was a washout. One: It poured down rain on Saturday, Two: People weren't buying.

I will never do another show on a Halloween again. JCCS was held October 31-November 1. Not enough people showed up with cash in hand, and those that did represented the wrong demographic. I have done this show before. Prior to this year it was a one-day affair. This year the promoters expanded it to two days. Doubling the hours did not double the gate receipts. Previous one-day Jet City shows had been well attended. This year, those who came just trickled in across two days instead of one. The show cannot be blamed for extremely bad weather on Saturday. That alone probably suppressed turn out. The killer was booking the Tacoma Convention Center on Halloween. With 20/20 hindsight I realize that this was like scheduling a convention on Christmas Day. Who would come?

In the past this show would get foot traffic from the nearby college campi such as Pacific Lutheran and the UW Tacoma. The college age crowd had better ways to party on a Halloween than dress up as superheroes and mix with the mundanes. Mostly non-fans showed up on Saturday. Moms and Dads brought small children to the show because each booth was handing out trick-or-treat candy. They must have viewed it as an alternative to taking the little tikes in costume to the mall or local community centers to do indoor trick-or-treating on a rainy day. They grabbed the merchants by their gumballs but they didn't spend anything! I hadn't seen so many muggles at a con since last year's Fantasy Con in Salt Lake City. It is also further proof that the so-called "economic recovery" is just a load of Administration bullsh*t!

My daughter and I invested a lot of time and money in sprucing up our display stand for JCCS. Depending on how you cut it, we spent something like $750 on this show and grossed a paltry $90! Only two actual fans made purchases from us who understood what was meant by "original art". Quite a number of attendees thought that we were selling refrigerator magnets even though we had signage to the contrary all over the display. Mundanes all seem to be illiterate dumb-f*cks! The corker to this lost weekend was the Bible-beating A-hole who harangued the departing merchants with a megaphone from the street behind the loading dock. To him we were selling the Devil's own forked tongue in comic book form. The less-than-happy merchants made their displeasure clear to him. Elmer Gantry was last seen high-tailing it down the street.

This was my last show for 2015. So far I have booked Rustycon, Radcon and Norwescon for next year.
