Nefarious has told me that for her birthday she would like me to paint a new portrait of her, with a unicorn. I was thinking I might do one based on the many medieval pictures of young women capturing unicorns, drawing inspiration from paintings like the ones below — “Wild women with unicorn” (1500), “The Maiden and the Unicorn” (1602, Zampieri), “A Maiden with a Unicorn” (1478, Da Vinci), “The young woman and the unicorn” (1470, Platearius), “Maiden with Unicorn” (15th century tapestry), and “The Woman with the Unicorn” (1505, Raphael).
Other than that, I’m happy to see that America is going back to the moon — although I do feel that we need to also start spending some real time and money exploring the ocean, which we probably know less about than we do the moon — and I got idle amusement from a couple of recent Oddee lists — “7 Most Bizarre Skin Conditions” and “10 Worst Plastic Surgery Disasters“.*
