Apple picking and Limulus polyphemus and 24 hour comics!


Apple picking in New England!






Above: the author of this blog, trying to sneakily snitch an apple from the pile. Unbeknownst to her, the person behind her has just put an apple on her head.

~ Update! My aunt Kate has posted a blog entry about the apples too! (Click to read). ~


And now, for something completely different.


So I previously mentioned making graphics of horseshoe crabs and amoebocytes. And now I can officially say that it's for the Journal of Visualized Experiments. JoVE is sort of a scientific YouTube (with an editorial board and peer review) -- videos for scientists trying to do lab experiments. Or for anyone who wants to know how to window a chicken egg, or in this case, how to properly bleed a horseshoe crab.

Click here to see the JoVE video where my graphics are used: "Blood collection from the American Horseshoe Crab, Limulus polyphemus"



And finally --


Next Saturday (Oct 18) is 24 hour comic day! Draw 24 pages of comics in 24 hours! Local art museums and comic stores across the world have registered as hosts; one can also try the event solo.

Anyway, I will be at Hub Comics at Union Square around 11 am or noon or whenever it starts. Come by and draw comics or share the madness.


And I leave you with this photo, from the farm we visited:
