The best of both worlds.
This was probably the smartest thing I will ever have thought and I was 8. What I would have given to grow up and be a unicorn-mermaid. But alas, one can be happy with just the memories of running around their neighbor's pool as the rare princess unicorn mermaid, right?
The lovely Thom May of http://bridgewindsoup.blogspot.com/ recently bequeathed me some acrylic paints before he departed for sunsets over the pacific ocean. Here is a painting for his parting. Maybe abit of thanks for the paints too. I was unaware that he has been painting cats and text lately. We are of similar minds even with a continent separating us. *tears*.
Rock and Art painting for the 2008 summer concert season. http://www.rockandart.org/ Acrylic on 30x30 inch gessoed board. My band for this program was Crosby, Stills and Nash. My amateur photo skills manifested themselves in losing a bit of the color. The richer green blues and lavenders don't seem to be present in the photo. Haha. I like the painting though. It expresses time, a deep appreciating for the beauty around us and strength of will to pursue into the unknown. Here we have a band that's been an influential voice of activism for generations. While known best for antiwar and counterculture themes they also commonly invoke sailing and nautical references. So one can see why I felt compelled to take a voyage approach. :)
Back in May one inauspicious Saturday morning my cousin and myself excitedly set out to Boston to attend our first ever anime convention. It warranted to become an entire day of unrestrained unbridled exorbitant anime goodness. Anime Boston. Little did we know one needed to pass the gatekeepers known as registration. One did this by waiting in line. This 'line' meandered through multiple lecture rooms at the Hynes convention center and is the unrivaled winner of long ass lines. For 5 hours we stayed queued, surrounded by one interesting phenomena. Serious cosplayers. Two things occurred to me. 1) We are out of place in our casual attire of sweatshirt and jeans. 2) This is the largest collection of Narutos one could ever expect to see.
Have been working on this a little bit here and there in my free time for over a month now. Flash and a bit of photoshop magic.
trails of thought follow my days.
logical fallacies. genetic mutation. skeptical debates. nihongo tango. fundamental zealotry. mythology. warping views of science. theories for gaps. empowerment and prehistory. rules and bigotry. beliefs. events. causality. collapse. nutritional values. significance.
a curiously interwoven stream, fleeting and floating away at the only constant i know; that of my internal voice.
