I started a project I have long been thinking of doing, but never had the confidence to carry out - illustrations of flowers with their scent molecules!
Scent is really complicated and involves lots of different molecules, but I picked out some favorites to illustrate :)
Rose - (-) cis-Rose Oxide
Lavender - licareol
Lilac - Lilac Alcohol
I'm also selling these as stickers! More designs to come: https://www.redbubble.com/people/willowescapee/works/30582829-aromachemistry-rose-lavender-and-lilac?asc=u&p=sticker&rel=carousel

I just got back on the red-eye from #Wakanda. I am both exhilarated and spent. I highly recommend a visit.
I leave it to our #black brothers and sisters in #geekdom to provide any in-depth analysis, judgment, or critique they feel this #film merits. My opinion doesn’t really matter. I just enjoyed the ride and enjoyed seeing all the surrounding #blerd joy.
One last thing though:
GIANT ARMORED RHINO MOUNTS FTW!
While I have encountered nothing but wise use of the “CW” option for spoilers in the Fediverse, I’ve yet to figure out how to mute specific keywords and phrases in my Mastodon client, e.g.: “Black Panther”. So ... I’m just not going to chance it. Catch everyone *after* I see the Black Panther movie this coming Wakanday.
FYI Humble Book Bundle has an Angry Robot bundle right now and the books are really good!
