After Antarctica and some backpacking, my Antarctica money ran out. Luckily I had a job lined up at Çatalhöyük @catalhoyuk_arch - a posterchild site for post-processual #archaeology!

My first full time #sciart gig as a archaeological illustrator!
catalhoyuk.com
I'd like to spotlight the ongoing #archaeological #illustration of Çatalhöyük illustrator @kjkillackey who was a great help in showing me the ropes, and her incredible work!

Also part of our little Çatalhöyük #sciviz office there was @jasonq, archaeological #photographer whose work you can see here: jasonquinlan.com (screenshot here)

Jason did a lot of climbing in scaffolding to get useful overhead shots of the dig! Image

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.

Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.

Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.
