Leonardo daVinci ” … was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of “unquenchable curiosity” and “feverishly inventive imagination”. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.”¬†*

But what does that have to do with thedavincian.net?

Well, nothing.

The DaVincian was a character I created about 25 years ago for a scifi comic book. Although never pursued much, the character — named Dante — still haunts me from time to time, waiting for his story to be told. He’s a bipedal, vaguely human-like avian creature. He is the last of his kind, destroyed by humans millenia ago. His species, who were called the DaVincians by the humans who first encountered them, were an amazingly advanced race that had spread throughout the galaxy. They’re immensely old, somewhere on the order of thirty¬†million years.

An awful rendition of Dante, the DaVincian

So what does THAT have to do with thedavincian.net?

Well, again, nothing really.

I just thought the name was cool.

This ~blog is just intended to be a storing house for my eclectic thoughts and musings, nothing more. Occasionally there might be something interesting here. More often it won’t, so don’t come thinking something really profound might actually be posted. It ain’t like that.
