i find my cosmic insignificance reassuring

the stars don’t fucking care who i am or what i do

i owe the universe nothing

i exist on my own terms

#the galaxy dont care that u messed up the thing that one time

#when existentialism becomes comforting rather than horrifying

A peryton is a mythological creature with the body of a stag and the wings and hindquarters of a bird. It is said to cast the shadow of a man until it kills one during its lifetime, from then on it casts its true shadow.

Shit, I drew that last one. Ten years ago. The internet must be hurting for fresh new peryton art: can we get on this please?

I must draw a Peryton.

Gaboon viper
Bitis gabonica (Viperidae), the Gaboon Viper is a formidable and beautiful African snake, with wide, massive and heavy body, triangular head and short tail. The adults usually measure about 140 cm in length.
Although the toxicity of its venom (cytotoxic and neurotoxic) is rather low compared to other poisonous serpents, this is compensated by the large amount that can be inoculated in each bite.
