redditor: christinabyme
from the /r/redditgetsdrawn subreddit, I keep meaning to 'finish' this but as its unlikely to happen anytime in the next decade and I kind of dug how the linework ended up (a mix of Pilot g2, Muji and copic markers) I figured I'd do a little cleanup and pub it.
kvikkalkul by zeruch
"/kveek`kahl-kool'/ A deliberately cryptic programming language said to have been devised by the Swedish Navy in the 1950s as part of their abortive attempt at a nuclear weapons program....It is an open question whether the posts were a troll, a subtle parody or truth stranger than fiction could ever be."

mixed media on masonite and cold press board, digital
segfault by zeruch
Original working title was "vertigo" and this was done using some mixed media (acrylics, screenprinting ink and drop markers) on sheet panels for textures, and manipulating a wallpaper pattern I found in a hotel in LA last year into something far removed from both.

So, I will be roaming about the next few weeks. Anyone care to meet up?  I'll be in Munich, Copenhagen and...who knows.

I do recommend that everyone get
familiar with the FAQ/Helpdesk

There is also the DA Status Forum (always informative), and the Etiquette Policy is something you should all refer to, because I do tend to lurk about in several of the public forums.


I have been described as an open source geek, a policy wonk, and even a bit of a creative illustrator (the latter being what folks here are most likely familiar with). All are at least partially true I suppose. I've been called all manner of adjectives, most of them contrarian. I was described once as a cross between Tucker Carlson and Lenny Kravitz. I have neither bow ties nor dreadlocks, but the description sounded incredibly cool, so I figured it was worth mentioning here.

I initially studied an individual major in Foreign Affairs and Technology Policy at UC Davis (with a language component at UC Berkeley), and am now starting to take coursework in Civil Litigation. I currently work in a few venues: a networking startup in Silicon Valley and do consulting to a corporate attorney in private practice, as well as occasional projects that meet my requirements for being interesting (which is a pretty broad category of potential). As one can derive from all of this, I do not do idle well, and I am not prone to boredom.

Here at DA I worked the HD for a year before moving to one of the Gallery Director slots for Traditional, until I sent myself out into the sunset in May of 2008. My own focus is on mixed media and looking for people who have yet to establish themselves. I periodically write content features, and regularly contribute to several of the forums.

Great great work.

If ya ever want to do a small format print trade or something let me know.
I can generally print up to SuperB before I have to send the work out to an industrial place.
Something like a small set of 8.5" x11" or smaller ( 4x6, 5x7 whatever) would be easy.
