There is a story behind these mugs
How many times
It’s a cute little thing though.
Sometimes it is hard to remember that owls are incredibly dangerous predators seen by cultures throughout the world as ill omens. Especially when they look like toasted marshmallows.
My boss once described them as flying pillows filled with seething hatred.
Further confirming that owls are the avian equivalent of cats.
"Let me tell you something my father told me. Look at the stars. The
great kings extinct Megafauna of the past look down on us from those stars.”
Well I spend a good chunk of time the past couple days creating a pattern of sparkly Megafauna in the sky. No regrets!!!
Apologies to anyone who actually studies or knows things about prehistoric animals. I just cherry-picked the ones I wanted to draw.
Featured: Irish Elk, Smilodon, Glyptodon, Wooly Mammoth, Paraceratherium
I could draw extinct mammals forever, they’re so strange and fascinating!!!

The Japanese embassy with Pope Gregory XIII
The Tensho embassy left Nagasaki in 1582, and went on to Goa (India) before arriving in Lisbon in 1584. Among the nobles they met in Europe were King Philip II of Spain, Francesco I de’ Medici, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Pope Gregory XIII and his successor Pope Sixtus V.
They arrived back in Japan in 1590, and were subsequently ordained as the first ever Japanese Jesuit fathers by Alessandro Valignano.
They were not, in fact, the first Japanese to visit Europe. The earliest one on record we have so far is Bernardo the Japanese, a disciple of St Francis Xavier who did a one-way trip to Europe in 1553. But there’s every chance they’ll discover someone else!
