The Woolly Terrestrial Octopus (Octopus hirtus) is a land-dwelling carnivore that can grow up to four feet in length and weigh as much as seventy-five pounds. It is warm-blooded and lives in northern temperate forests, using its sharp beak to hunt for birds, squirrels, and other small rodents. It is a solitary creature that is most active at night.

The terrestrial octopus has a thick coat of fur and is able to climb trees and rocky outcrops using its strong arms, which are lined with mucus-secreting suction cups. Unlike its invertebrate marine counterpart, the terrestrial octopus has a skeleton, including a skull, rib cage, and vertebra-like columns of bones within each arm.

During mating season, the terrestrial octopus builds, in thickets of tall vegetation, distinctive conical grass-nests in which to lay its large, speckled eggs. It will lay three to five eggs, and the incubation period lasts for thirty-five to forty days.

HAPPY WORLD TURTLE DAY!

*edit: it has come to my attention that in British English (which I use) there is a distinction between “turtle” and “tortoise”, while in American English all these guys fall under the “turtle” category. Oh well. The more you know!

Hey guys! This is the title page of a 6 page mini-comic for the awesome Amanda Scurti’s new fantasy Earth-themed anthology TERRESTRIAL. It’s loosely based off the Filipino mythological figure, Mariang Sinukuan. I’ve been wanting to do something with her for awhile, so I was really excited about the anthology’s theme. You can pre-order it here, before it debuts at SPX in September. Check out all the other wonderful contributors!! It’s a mind-blowing list. Thank you again Amanda for inviting me. :)

Meganeura  - The Giant Dragonfly

When: Carboniferous (~305-299 million years ago)

Where: France

What: Meganeura is the largest dragonfly, with a wingspan of 2.5 feet (~75 cm) in some specimens. The largest living dragonfly is a comparatively weensy 7.5 inches (~19 cm) across at the wings. A scientific debate had centred upon why Meganeura was able to become so large. It has been suggested that it was only able to reach such a great size due to the relatively higher levels of oxygen in the Carboniferous air. This is based partly upon the way most modern insects respire, they do not truly breathe, but instead simply diffusion oxygen throughout their small bodies. However, more recent studies show that larger insects do breathe via compression and expansion of their trachea. Additionally insects much larger than those today have been found in later rocks which do not show evidence of elevated oxygen levels. More research needs to be done to determine the impact of oxygen levels upon the maximum size of insects.  

Only a few fossils have been found of Meganeura, but despite this, almost every scene ever of a Carboniferous forest has one of these animals perched upon a giant club moss tree. I do not blame them, I could not resist either.  Other animals in these dense forests with Meganeura were a gaggle of other gigantic insects and arthropods, a great variety of amphibians, and the first reptiles. This was the start of the true colonization of land by vertebrates; it has also been suggested it was the arrival of these predators which limited the size of insects such as Meganeura in later time periods. 

THE MAGICKAL & HEALING PROPERTIES OF MOLDAVITE

Moldavite is a favorite stone of mine because of it’s intense, “out of this world” energy! Moldavite is a tektite which means it was created from impact when a meteor struck Earth. The heat of the meteor impact melted surrounding rocks, dirt and sand creating a “strew field” of moldavite tektites that extends for miles. Moldavite is only found in parts of the Czech Republic, Germany and Moldavia making it a rare stone that will eventually become extinct. Tektites such as moldavite and libyan desert glass are NOT meteorites! You will frequently see them mislabeled as such in stores.

Upon holding moldavite, many people will report feeling an intense surge of energy! You can often feel tingling sensations or a subtle vibration in your hand when holding a moldavite. It’s common to feel fluttering in the chest, to have a hot flash, feel nausea, dizziness or to feel “spaced-out” when first holding/wearing a moldavite. These effects can last anywhere from minutes to days and it’s just your body adjusting to moldavite’s frequency. I suggest after you buy a piece of moldavite, you spend some time with it to see how it’s energy effects you. It will often take time for your body to become acclimated to the intense energy of a tektite. Most people become acclimated to moldavite (and no longer experience the weird effects) within 3-5 days.

Magickal Uses:

Moldavite is an excellent stone to use to assist in astral travel and in the communication with spirit guides. Moldavite also assists in past life regression and it can help you to see into the future. Intuitive abilities often become stronger when wearing/carrying moldavite so it’s an excellent stone to work with if you are looking to develop your psychic abilities.

Moldavite and other tektites are not psychically protective. Moldavite can actually amplify your energy/feelings and the energy/feelings of those around you. Again, it’s very important to see how moldavite effects you before you wear or carry it on a daily basis. It’s often best to carry or wear black tourmaline, jet or smoky quartz with moldavite to help stay grounded & psychically protected until you are acclimated to moldavite’s intense energy.

Use caution when incorporating moldavite in magickal workings because it will assist in manifesting your intent/thoughts very quickly. Make sure your mind is clear and your intent is focused during magickal workings to avoid any problems when you work with moldavite.

Healing Properties

The fluttering most people feel in their chest while holding moldavite happens because moldavite helps to stimulate and open the heart & thymus (spiritual heart) chakras. When kept close to the body, moldavite will also begin to remove energy blockages in all of the chakras. If you have had trouble opening your heart chakra and releasing bottled-up emotions, moldavite is the stone for you! Moldavite also helps you to develop unconditional love for yourself and others. Because moldavite can amplify thoughts and make emotions more intense, it’s best to use moldavite for healing purposes only when you are already healthy and fairly balanced. Moldavite is more a stone of activation and transformation than of healing.

Moldavite also resonates well with the crown chakra and it helps to accelerate spiritual growth. While wearing or holding moldavite, solutions to problems will become clear. It’s not uncommon to have an epiphany or two while working with moldavite! If you struggle with finding your purpose in this life, I recommend carrying or wearing a moldavite as it helps you to “remember” why you are here. Moldavite will often bring repressed emotions bubbling to the surface so that they can be either acknowledged, integrated or released. This helps to facilitate emotional healing and spiritual growth.

Chakras: Energizes and removes energy blockages from all of the chakras.

Zodiac: No specific associations.

Planetary Associations: No specific associations.

Color: Dark green, green, light green

Peace, Love & Magick

This is Cellar Door, a short one-shot comic I made for Amanda Scurti’s fantasy anthology, Terrestrial. The anthology is full of beautiful comics and illustrations, you can buy it here if you’re interested.

I always wanted to go into a fantasy world, Narnia-style, when I was a kid. Well, maybe I shouldn’t date that, because if my closet suddenly had no back you can bet I’d go through, at least to see what was up.

[note: at least to me, Tumblr is displaying the last 2 pages with weird black bars on em, but when you click through to full size they should display fine!]
