New Goodreads illustration! I enjoyed working with the limited palette, and always love painting books. Thanks Jade Change for the direction!
There is supposedly a downloadable poster version they’ll be releasing as well, so keep and eye on their site, if you’re a teacher or librarian or someone who likes books.
Also, Happy National Library Week!
Oh I love libraries.
In 1989 archaeologist Thomas Miller discovered a remote jungle cave known as Actun Tunichil Muknal (or ATM), in the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve in Belize. Excavations at ATM over the next decade revealed an extraordinary Mayan archaeological site that includes human skeletons and ceramics. Archaeologists say that the Mayans believed that ATM as an entrance to the underworld and came to the cave to perform sacrificial rituals.
The site became known as the Cave of the Crystal Sepulcher because calcite drip water coated the bones and artifacts with crystals and gave them a glittery appearance and cemented them to the cave floor. But the crystal coating, while pretty to look at, has made dating the bones difficult, so archaeologists relied on the pottery and believe it dates between 700 and 900 AD.

I’ve been here! This is a must-see site while visiting Belize. The hike through the caves to the maiden is beautiful and full of smashed ritualistic pottery and blood letting materials.
friendly reminder that there’s a cut scene in Thor that while the Destroyer is blowing shit up, Darcy runs into the pet store to save all the animals and give them to people leaving the town
as things are being set on fire around her, she talks to the dog, telling him I won’t let the big scary monster step on you, and names it Baker
Why was this cut? I need that scene in the film!
