I’ve always loved space and the planets. I’ve seen a few “human planets” sets done by other artists (I saw one in particular that inspired me to start this one but I lost the link) and most of them are pretty literal in the human department. I wanted to try making something more androgynous and godlike.
The colors are all based off the planets’ true colors, and the designs are a mix of the names’ mythos and Holst’s “The Planets” suite. They get progressively less human the further they are from the Sun, which I thought was fun. :) Enjoy!! Pluto included.
My favortie version of anthromorphic planets as of yet. Really captures the exotic, alien nature of them while still have some sense of familarity.
New Warning: Morning-After Pill Doesn’t Work for Women Over 176 Pounds
The European manufacturer of a pill identical to Plan B says its product won’t work for women who weigh more than 176 pounds. Will American pharma companies warn women of weight limits?
The European manufacturer of an emergency contraceptive pill identical to Plan B, also known as the morning-after pill, will warn women that the drug is completely ineffective for women who weigh more than 176 pounds, and begins to lose effectiveness in women who weigh more than 165 pounds. HRA Pharma, the French manufacturer of the European drug, Norlevo, is changing its packaging information to reflect the weight limits. European pharmaceutical regulators approved the change on November 10, but it has not been previously reported.
It’s also important to mention that some other forms of contraception, like the birth control patch, also do not work for women above certain weights (I think Planned Parenthood told me 180 pounds recently).
semi-related fun-fact, plan B was originally marketed as a pregnancy-improving drug that was supposed to reduce complications and stuff like that. some “spontaneous miscarriages” later, someone realized the irony of the situation.
