Starfish Wasting Syndrome

Starfish wasting syndrome is a disease that attacks about 40 species of sea stars on the East and West coast of the US and Canada. It seems to be related to rises in water temperature. It causes lesions followed by fragmentation and death. It causes mass mortality and scientists have yet to figure out what exactly what causes it. I sometimes feel like I am wasting away when I can’t make new art. For about a three year stretch I had the luxury of making one or two new works a day. It honed the video card in my head to a razor sharp edge. It is the first time in my life I had so much time to put towards getting better. Now I make one a week if I am lucky. ;_; I can feel the pastel colored pixels dissolving into fizzy clouds and floating out of my ears into the void.
