Everything You Need to Know to Draw Miasma!

Draw Miasma!

Cause Creative Outlets Are Important in Times of Strife!

So, let’s see here, we tried to sidetrack you with the heartwarming Puppies and Unicorns, but that sorta only kinda worked… It’s a weird time, full of new things and people are reacting differently. So I’m jumping to the opposite extreme and saying, let’s put a face to the enemy! And we’ll see how that plays out!

So back in the dark ages when black plague was the disease of note, and science had, it seemed, moved slightly past just blaming witches… a new theory on how disease worked was established… it involved deadly clouds of invisible vapors that emerged from areas of rot and disease… IE the ground, swamps, dead things, and pretty much, least the the way i read this… poor people… They called it Miasma. One could breathe a lil and maybe just get a case of the vapors… but get full lungful of a fresh batch rising out of the slums at night and you were done for!

Now I dont quite know how to describe an invisible, evil, cloud of vapor, so I’m just going to leave that to you and wherever your head’s at these days! But search for “cartoons of polio” or “plague” etc if you want, cause there have been some pretty great versions over the centuries! Now’s your opportunity to maybe add some less great ones to the pile!

And since we’re learning together… I think it’s important to note that while the discovery of germs pretty much made the theory obsolete… the science behind stopping Miasma’s spread, did help to bring about inventions like medical masks and did keep folks away from areas that were often hotbeds of disease…. so thanks Miasma! Hahaha, ok I’m done!

You’ve got til midnight on Friday the 10th!
