So I am 22 year old Sculptor trying to figure out how this "real world works". I'm rather short, only 4'9". By the ones who love me I am called a dwarf because not only am I short but I have red hair and work well with metal and wood :P so I just accept it. I'm also crazy about a few things such as comics/tv shows/BOOKS/and DRAGONS ! ! ! so if you want me to go all crazy on you just mention one of those. I also love to cosplay and to use my artistic talents to help with that.

(Note. This blog of mind is kind of all over the place at times. From my art, others' art, pretty pictures of nature or cute ones of animals, to cosplays and other fandom stuff. Anyways One day I may get more organized and make one just for art, or just for fandoms, but for now, this is what it is. Hope you enjoy it !)

One of the things I noticed reading the Wheel of Time this time ‘round is the similarities between Mat and Nynaeve.

The two hate each other quite a bit, though would never actively hurt one another, but they are surprisingly alike. They both, for most of the series, like to pretend that they are the same person that they were when they left Emonds Field, but in reality have changed quite a lot. They also both think the other person is incapable of handling themselves properly, and in need of their own help. This is equal parts amusing and frustrating, but still, I find it interesting that they both think this. They both change great amounts throughout the series, and are, by any and all accounts, heroes. But Nynaeve thinks herself cowardly at best, and Mat insists he’s no bloody hero. They both simply do what needs doing in their minds, and are hailed as heroes and generals and saviors because of this.

Though their interactions with each other are frustrating for all parties involved (myself especially), they are incredibly similar, a fact which I’m really glad RJ developed and included. He could have made Nynaeve whiny and annoying, and completely glorified Mat, but instead their thoughts and behaviours run on similar tracts, and neither are treated with more or less importance than the other. They also develop in similar, though in many aspects different, ways.

I never really knew why I liked both characters so much but hated reading of them together, but now I know that it’s because when you put two like minded people together, or at least similar in the ways that Mat and Nynaeve are. sparks will definitely fly.

American contemporary pop artist Ron English (previously featured here) has an ongoing fascination with Guernica (top image), Pablo Picasso's famous 1937 painting depicting the intense suffering and tragedies of war, created in response to the bombing of the village of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.

Ron English has painted his own interpretations of Guernica over 50 times to date. For him the iconic painting serves as a modern template, “just as the Madonna and Child is an ancient template,” he says.

The Huffington Post recently shared an essay by English in which he explained his reasons for continually reimagining Picasso’s masterpiece:

“[Guernica] is a visual shorthand for the overwhelming and gratuitous horror of modern war. But I argue that the cultural takeaway of Guernica is actually the opposite. It transforms incomprehensible tragedy into a cartoon narrative, something we can more easily absorb. This is part of the human process, to distance ourselves from the immediacy of undiluted, overwhelming emotions by overlaying a narrative that simplifies, and in effect, takes us down from three to two dimensions. And this is the underlying concept that I grapple with in all my many versions of Guernica.”

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay.

Sailor Moon: Modern Guardians

With the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon happening, I decided to redesign the five main Sailor Scouts and give their outfits/uniforms and tailor them to fit each character a little more/be less dated. I replaced their tiaras for high-tech visors that vary slightly for each scout.  

Originally, I was going to wait to post these rough pieces once I finished the actual piece for an upcoming Sailor Moon art show I was doing but my twin brother wscottforbes wanted to post his version of it (I’ll link his once it goes up), so here are mine! A rather weird style for me to draw in… I drew most of these a few months ago. Expect a better piece to be posted later in the month/August.

FINALLY!! i’ve been anticipating this for so long now ;_; love ben’s redesigns!

Spotted Pip curled up on someone’s front lawn the other day. 

The people who live there are clearly massive fox fans and have been feeding the foxes in the area for a long time, including Donna and Big Dog. I actually took a video of Big Dog curled up in the same spot back in 2012!

A Russian tank manufacturer has unveiled a new tram design that it plans to start mass-producing in 2015. These beautiful pieces of engineering will hold 190 to 270 passengers and will be able to traverse on even the older, worn out Russian tram tracks.

I have never wanted to fuck a tram before, but here we are.

When Charlotte Brontë was thirteen and her brother, Branwell, was twelve, they designed and wrote a series of tiny books: “Measuring less than one inch by two inches, the books were made from scraps of paper and constructed by hand. Despite their diminutive size, the books contained big adventures, written in ink in careful script.”

I know that I mentioned in passing a piece of mine was featured in print, but I’m bringing it up again because I’ve finally been able to totally steal show the photo they took of it.
