Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.

how the hell do you bend and braid a tree

Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together. You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.Frankentrees.

As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.

On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.

But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:

Arg, I’m still not there with getting how I see them in my head down! But airinn and littleulvar tempt me with their awesome and fitting split hair designs. 

Anyway, I didn’t want to rush ahead of canon with Cecil and Carlos, I really didn’t. Let them have more than one date, see how they act when… oh, but, nope. I couldn’t help myself. Canon will catch up eventually though, yes? :D

Some NV paintings. Approaching something like my head-canon with Cecil now, thanks to my NV goddesses, airinn and littleulvar.

Cecil and Carlos have their freaky-romantic first date at Gino’s.
One off-canon, Cecil and Carlos changing a flat in the desert (or not…). Cecil drives a 1960’s Rambler in my head to contrast with Carlos’ sporty Hybrid Coupe. <3
Feral Dogs being libertarian street artists. Twist on a Banksy.

Perfection is not real. Perfection is not human. Carlos is not perfect- no, even better- he is imperfect. Everything about him, and us, and all of this is imperfect. And those imperfections in our reality are the seams and cracks into which our outsized love can seep and pool.

This is a really beautiful message and one I wish a lot more people took to heart.

Darling, you are perfect, in all of your imperfections.
(Maybe mild spoilers for the live show? Like, you might not get the joke if you haven’t seen it yet. ^^;)

Painting this one was fun! ^^

Cecil Gershwin Palmer, past and present.
I always have way too much fun with his 50’s clothes.

Episode 30 is an Intern Dana episode! Which makes me all kinds of happy, because Intern Dana is clearly the best Intern and if you disagree, you are wrong. One day, if she ever gets out of the Dog Park, she will be NVCR management, or mayor.
(It’s totally my head canon that she’s Cecil’s favourite too. I mean, they’re Facebook friends and they’re always texting each other, they share a love of cute cat videos and they’re both good at not dying.)
Please please please get out of the Dog Park soon, Dana! ilu. ( ^3^)
