Make tea and Foreshadow Shit
Just your average, normal fangirl. Like you, I'm wasting my summer on here instead of being productive. Odds are I have homework to do and that's basically my life. And I just realized how creepy this is without telling you anything about me. You can call me Violin-Maestro because I'm not telling you my name, ummmm, I'm 17 years old, terrified about my future, and you can talk to me if you want. Think that's about it I guess. And this is getting long, heh, sorry.

10 Things…Painting Like a Writer from Muddy Colors

image
Flow…one of my stream-of-consciousness pieces…but even when the elements barely relate, it still has to work compositionally 

Creative picture making is like creative writing. While studying books about writing, when an author describes how to construct compelling sentences, I hear it as if they are talking about building a picture. I often replace the word ‘writer’ with ‘artist’ and find new clues for simplifying an image to get to the point.

The creative process is universal. Studying other creative fields helps me learn better picture design.  This opens me up, and allows me to understand painting from a writer’s perspective.

Juuuust now realizing I can show my piece for the Iron Giant tribute show as well!  Judging from this and my Bioshock piece, I’m really into trompe l’oeil and obscure references right now.
The Iron Giant is still one of my favourite animated films, and Dean is still one of my favourite animated hotties. Mmmm boy.

These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’

Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.

Its hard for men to understand why women dont get loud & angry because they havent spent their entire lives being reprimanded whenever they take up too much space. (via pluralfloral)

A tiger mother lost her cubs from premature labour. Shortly after she became depressed and her health declined, and she was diagnosed with depression. So they wrapped up piglets in tiger cloth, and gave them to the tiger. The tiger now loves these pigs and treats them like her babies.
