This is a time capsule.

Someday, these hands will grow weak and these eyes will fail. Until that day comes, let it be known that I have at least once made good use of them.

Sketch for translation trades

Hello Tumblr folks!

I’m afraid I’m in a bit of a situation. I am trying to put something together for a really small personal project, and while technically I have all the materials I need to make it work, I could really use some help with text translations from English to well, other languages basically (with Russian and German being the most relevant). I can’t really discuss details here at the moment, but I can and will explain everything in detail over private messages, or better yet, shoot me an email at fiordiligie@gmail.com. For now all I can say that the text for translation is fairly simple, straightforward, and shouldn’t require any literary flourish or anything to that effect, and for your help I’m more than happy to offer a sketch or even a simple backgroundless illustration in exchange.

Here’s the catch though: I might not be able to give a lot of time as I will be needing to print everything before the weekend, also, unfortunately the text in question is currently still being generated, so chances are I can pass them along either later this day or tomorrow at the very latest. 

Another catch! Since I’m pushing to get this done before the weekend, I won’t be able to work on my half of the trade until after the weekend. 

Soooo… any of you guys speak fluent Russian, German, French, Polish, Swedish, Dutch, and/or Japanese etc.? Email me (fiordiligie@gmail.com)! Or send me an ask! :D

Many many thanks!

Instead of finishing my manuscript, I do this. Whenever scientific writing deadlines are involved, I find myself myself wanting, no, needing to make something art related instead. It’s like this constant battle between my left and right brain.
Blargh. My phone case needed a better grip anyway so it’s justified.

Cleaning up and re-sorting files again…

Some old art that I still don’t hate like up to now. Was for CA.org’s CHOW a while back. Really wish I had more time to do these things again.

Anonymous said: Thank you for giving the time to answer that ask! :D (the background history one I swear it was so cool it was like watching a studio ghibli firework scene go off in my head) How did you end up in Germany though???? hope i'm still not intruding huhu i saw your DA the other day and i was so amazed and good luck with your thesis!

Haha wow thanks!! <3   

Hm… actually Germany wasn’t a conscious choice exactly. I just finished my masters then, and I kind of wanted to move into a slightly different field (was previously in food/ industrial microbiology, then went to plant pathology, but what I really reeeeaaally wanted was to get into medical research, but so far I just didn’t get the chance). Germany was kind of my opening, although I applied to a bunch of other places as well. It’s nice though, and it’s a good place for science too so, win win. :)  

And hey thanks again anon! By the way I just submitted my thesis this morning so yaaayy! :D

So I was surprised to get this ask a couple of days ago. I thought about answering it right away but then… I thought a bit more and this happened haha. Yeah after pulling several all nighters in a row my brain kind of needed a break from all the thesis writing @_@

(For those who don’t speak Tagalog, quick version, anon was asking about how I started in art and how I ended up in Science.)

(And for that anon who asked, thank you, that was a pleasant surprise. Hope I answered your question :) )

Anonymous said: Indeed one of the secrets is mine :) and I totally understand about the busyness (I'm in a similar situation as well with my final exams right now haha). And a full fledged scientist??? Dang that sounds really cool!! :D Sending a lot of good luck your way! I just thought about your secrets project because part of my secret recently came true

Oho, the plot thickens. :) And aww thanks! And heeyy, you too anon, all the best for your finals! :D

Anonymous said: Curious, are you still working on the secrets?

Hi anon, I haven’t dropped the project and I honestly don’t intend to, but let’s just say for now it’s on temporary hiatus. I still have about 15 secrets on the list and even though I originally intended this project to be some sort of creativity exercise, as soon as I actually started receiving these confessions they all immediately became very precious to me as well, so yeah… I really want to do them justice. I take it that one of those secrets is yours? :)

I will get back to them, I promise, but not quite yet.

(Here’s a secret: at the moment I’m pretty busy getting things in order so that I may soon become a full-fledged scientist ;) )
