of my latest DD, i thought i'd create something using a variation of my minimalist sumi-e technique for gnarls. let me know if you think i should create a tutorial for this technique! :D

Thanks to C-91 for hosting "just about out of time" as a Daily Deviation!
Or, a great couple of months at any rate. :)

:bulletblack:  In late May, we got our first up close pictures of the dwarf planet Ceres, in the asteroid belt, which display some interesting bright spots. www.nasa.gov/jpl/dawn-holding-…

I wonder what they are...  I"m going to take a guess and say ice formations, but I could easily be wrong.  What do you think they are?

:bulletblack:  In case you weren't paying attention, we just got our first up close and personal picture of Pluto! The internet is all abuzz about this one. Pluto is way out in the Kuiper belt, so these images had to travel a long way to get to us. www.nytimes.com/2015/07/15/sci…

I think it's beautiful. It's actually only the second most massive dwarf planet in our solar system.  Eris, which is way out in the scattered disc, is the most massive. but Pluto is larger by volume.

:bulletblack:  Pentaquarks confirmed in the LHC! abcnews.go.com/Technology/larg… These had been predicted by the Standard model, i believe, but until this month had eluded detection. These particles are made up of four quarks and an anti-quark bound together.

I don't pretend to understand the breakdown of all the subatomic particles known to us, but I still find it fascinating.  What are the implications? Or applications?

Also, on a somewhat cheekier note, is it really "turtles, all the way down"? :iconteheplz:

thank you! :D

Kowalski was an IRC thing.  my friends called me that because i could be a bit of a "loose cannon" (it's kind of a joke from old cop movies - you'd have a detective who was always bucking authority. and there was always a detective named Kowalski, because for a time a lot of Polish immigrants would take jobs in police work).

so the name sort of stuck, and those friends still call me that (especially my friend from Poland). i like the name also because the root is Koval, which translates to the english "Smith", as in the surname, but also as in someone who makes something (blacksmiths, leathersmiths, etc.). i'm a fractal smith. ;)

someday i'd really like to visit Warsaw... what my friend has told me of it, it sounds fascinating. :)

Oh I see, I have already started to think you're Polish and there is some connection to the film 'Madagascar' with that penguin Kowalski, he knew how to make a piece of paper fly, if I remember it right, I didn' really enjoy the film anyway. But detectives sound much better than that! And what beautiful times, Polish immigrants now wash the dishes usually :/ Or that's just a modern stereotype.

You should definately visit Warsaw one day, it can be beautiful with all the old parks and buildings. Actually, that's where I currently live. Not in a park ha ha but in Warsaw c;
