Coalcats are living constructs built specifically for dangerous work in mines or in spaceports. They feed off of anything that burns by opening the hatch in their stomach and tossing it in, though coal seems to generally be the favorite food of choice. Due to their impervious nature and love of work their popularity caused their numbers to soar into the millions. Upset by the sudden lack of jobs the living meat beings put a ban on production of Coalcats roughly eighty years ago, hoping their numbers would dwindle through natural causes and various accidents.
Suffice it to say they did not, and in an effort to keep their jobs and their lives the Coalcats have formed their very own workers union and are now considered their own race, thanks to their efforts.

Love this!

photos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts

This is better to see than white people with African animals.

Me and over 200 Animators participated in the Moon Animate Make Up Project which is a collaborated remake of an episode of Sailor Moon. Seeing everyone’s styles here is awesome! It was great fun being a part of a project like this and I hope you enjoy it!

This was great!

Hey everyone,

For the last year of my life I’ve been working my butt off on this game - Trekking the National Parks. I designed it, created all the art, and now I’m self publishing it. So the time has finally come to launch on Kickstarter!

Besides being an independent artist, I’m also an avid gamer. My goal was to make something fun and easy to learn that families and friends could enjoy together.

So if you are a fan of games, National Parks, or even just my art, please help me out by pledging to this project! You can also help by simply reblogging this post. Thanks.

As a soon-to-be Montanan with Glacier and Yellowstone and other parks nearby, I approve of this game. Support!
