Hey I never got a chance to upload this before, but I tried out for Boom! Studio’s Steven Universe comic forever ago! This was my one-page entry. In retrospect the art is very VERY cluttered, which probably worked against me, but I COLORED IT MYSELF!!! AND WAS VERY PROUD OF THE COLORING!! 

Please give your support to the rad dudes whose awesome art and writing landed them this job!! I went to school with both of them! :D

(JUST WANNA REITERATE THAT THIS IS JUST A TEST PAGE AND NOT OFFICIAL COMIC ART)

So I couldn’t help notice that the Yogscast TV Tropes page has a fanfic recommendation page for a little while now, and only one fic has been recommended.  And I think that’s a bit of a shame.  There are definitely more yogfics out there that are exceptional, and even one fan has received a shout out from Rythian himself.

My point is, the page needs suggestions.  Any tropers out there with ideas are welcome I’m sure.

Brain Changes Suggest Autism Starts In The Womb

The symptoms of autism may not be obvious until a child is a toddler, but the disorder itself appears to begin well before birth.

Brain tissue taken from children who died and also happened to have autism revealed patches of disorganization in the cortex, a thin sheet of cells that’s critical for learning and memory, researchers report in the New England Journal of Medicine. Tissue samples from children without autism didn’t have those characteristic patches.

Organization of the cortex begins in the second trimester of pregnancy. “So something must have gone wrong at or before that time,” says Eric Courchesne, an author of the paper and director of the Autism Center of Excellence at the University of California, San Diego.

The finding should bolster efforts to understand how genes control brain development and lead to autism. It also suggests that treatment should start early in childhood, when the brain is capable of rewiring to work around damaged areas.
