Hi! I’m here waving at you this week because we’re hoping to boost our Supporter count. When we removed most of the ads from NG in January, our goal was to hit 4,000 active Supporters in 2020. We’re making steady progress but are coming up about 300 people short! If you have $3 per month or $25 per year to spare, please consider becoming a Supporter today!

Ghost Map

Share

Drawing for an old track I touched up and re-released on Soundcloud: "Ghost Map".


Inspired by my reading about cells and plagues and stuff back in the day (2008/9). Particularly the Cholera outbreak in London; 1854.


Oldie on NG:


Physical to digital touch-up. I have a cheap wacom but I just can't get used to it. Leel ghost bacteria. I used the symbols from the real outbreak map in the drawing. The orb represents the tainted public water pumps the city had and the bars on the "map" represent the deaths by household. The aura around the character is for the established thinking at the time; sickness was caused by "miasma".

The The John Snow Map (Insert GOT joke)

(we've come a long way, eh? Look at all the world stats and numbers, graphs, we have now via the internet. Same principle. Funny how dumb we still act when it comes to this stuff. Masks vs. no masks, etc. Still, people acting like we're living in 1854, like we've learned nothing. . .pathetic really. The miasmata still exists.)


Stay safe out there.
