I present, a microbiologist magical girl! Or a microbe magical girl, whichever you prefer i guess, with guest stars from Moyashimon Microbes!

This was a commission from a really cool MCB grad student, and i was more than happy to work on it because it combines so many many many of my favorite things :D I was basically given more or less free reign with some input on the science side of things, so cookies to people who see all the little references in the picture to microbiology and lab work :3 I may do a rework of this with generic microbes and not moyashimon ones to bring to otakon and awa as a print, but we’ll see in a week or two. 

I wanted to post this earlier but a giant headache basically pooped on the last 8 hours of my life v_v

Her staff is an inoculation loop. Too cute!

The Teacher’s Prayer

heymissat:

A student wrote this for me…

Our teacher which art in school. Hallowed is thy desk. They schooldom come, they work be done at home as it is at school. Give us this day our daily homework, and forgive us our lost assignments as we forgive your glitched iPad. Lead us not into cheating, but deliver us from Pre-Algebra. For thine is the classroom, and the grading, and the breaks, forever and ever. Amen.

-D__________, your favorite student
