As someone who will probably have fictional people who he wants to put faces to at some point, may I ask what generator you use?

And that liquid crystal photo is mesmerizing. I immediately thought of a chameleon when I saw it.

Indeed. Named after my grandfather, in fact! Though the difference is that he was "Larry", and my legal first name is "Lawrence", which was deliberately chosen so that I'd have something more "formal" to appear on my degree certificates... but there was never a thought that I'd end up in French-speaking countries for extended periods.

I use one called "MetaHuman Creator", which is designed for the game industry and not too hard to use. (It's also free for noncommercial purposes and under certain other things with their license.)

Though I made an easy fix to the banknotes: struck the dates, so no pinpointing eras.

Same here, especially the top half. As bonus points, it's from a somewhat failed experiment.
And I'll dance with you in Vienna,
I'll be wearing a river's disguise;
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thigh...

Looking for subjects to appear on banknotes. Inquire within.

Ah non ! Quel dommage ! [xD]

Thank you for sharing the generator! I’ll look into it [:)]

i redrew the borders of the 50 states to my own liking, corresponding to the National Weather Services' forecast regional boundaries.

Image (edit: if the image doesnt show up, the link will still work)

This is a project that stands by itself, not part of any conworld, though I could whip up an electoral map just for fun to see how things would play out with the new borders. CA, FL, and TX are all broken up, but New York remains and may in fact be the most populous state now.

I favored Native American names except in the West, including some names I'd never heard of before.

I love it. I'm a sucker for an electoral map, so if you ever get around to it, please post it.

Meanwhile, I made a blog where I review newly published books by first-time authors. It's mostly an exercise in masochism.
I did it. I made the world's worst book blog.

So my intention was to only post the one musical thing because I didn't want to feel like I was just plastering my music wherever I could, but I felt the need to make an exception for this one because I think it actually has some relevance to this place because the lyrics are in a conlang!

Not one of my own unfortunately (maybe one day; that would be cool). The lyrics for this are in ✨Toki Pona✨

Same deal as before: loud electronic noises, only I've learned plenty more about production since the last one so this one's considerably louder than the previous one. Also forgive the vocal mixing; I'm really not that experienced with it (this is probably like the 3rd time I've mixed vocals), I can't sing, and I needed it to not sound like me for cringe-mitigation reasons [:)]

Enjoy! <3

Sounds cool! The vocals don't sound at all bad to my ears, they fit the track just fine how they are. Maybe a little bit "dry" and low in the mix at times, but of course vocals don't always have to be front and centre anyway. The drums are very punchy, which is nice, and the synth sounds are just as good as those used by big electronic artists. It's also catchy, like, I bet it'll pop up in my head occasionally as an earworm and I'll drive myself crazy wondering what song it is haha.

Looks a little bit like a Varo commercial!

But more artistic.
