It's one of those rare journal entry things! I tend not to really post here much because I'm usually found on FB and Tumblr.

Anyway, I managed to do something to my back yesterday, so I saw a GP today who spotted straight off that I'm hypermobile and diagnosed a subluxed rib - basically the rib dislocated itself then popped back into alignment. Not the first time I've done this, I suspect, and undoubtedly won't be the last either. based on the acid reflux and other clinical signs he says he thinks I actually have the hypermobile form of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. I have a couple of friends with EDS who had suggested this to me before, so frankly the diagnosis didn't come as a surprise at all.

There's not much that can be done really, but I have pharmacy-strength diclofenac gel to rub into the affected area that's far stronger than the stuff I could get OTC so it was a worthwhile visit. And at least it's in my notes now.

Hi Arkady,

How are you?

My name is Lindy Fu. Our company ZQGame is looking for good artwork from talented artists. We have seen this work from your artwork site: [link]. We wonder if we can use it for our game promotional marketing. If so, is the IP yours or somebody else? What the price range would be? Please let us know. We can work on the details later. You can reach me at

Thank you very much,

Lindy Fu

Unfortunately the IP of that particular subject belongs to Bioware; it is a piece of fanart depicting the character Anders from Dragon Age 2. However I would be willing to accept a commission for a similar piece featuring an original character of either your or my own specifications.

A sample list of my commissions prices is available here, together with contact details.
Thank you for the fav ^^
