Painter painting in our time in shadows of yesterday

Painter, if you paint with love, paint me some black angels now
For all good blacks in heaven, painter show us that you care

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 (via Bored Panda).

New Thoughts on Fandom

Well, thoughts on fandom and people in general I suppose.

But one thing that has become very clear after the most recent episode of Doctor Who is that a seemingly significant amount of people have a lot of difficulty when characters have emotional reactions and get upset about things “when they should know better”. (Clara’s reaction to the Doctor is the case in point, though I’ve seen it with other fandoms too; Nina in ”Code Geass” re: FLEIJA also got this, and I am pretty certain some of the shit that got flung at Korra during late Book 1 and Book 2 was along these lines.)

And it bothers me because gosh, actually experiencing something is not the same as knowing facts about it. Knowing that the Doctor has been other people in the past, and even having met them, doesn’t make the fact that seeing a beloved friend change right in front of Clara is a kind of stress and shocking thing to witness - and change into someone whose harsher sides are right on the surface instead of tucked away behind fluffy Matt Smith who was mostly very affectionate. Twelve is clearly also very fond of Clara, but he’s much more tsundere about it. (People criticising Clara for being shallow clearly have no viewing comprehension whatsoever, given the whole speech Clara had about it.)

It’s just… emotions do not run on strict logic. Anyone who’s ever had that moment of “Why am I sobbing mess over a fictional character?” will get this. (And throws into rather harsh contrast the way that, say, Clara, is given far less emotional latitude than basically every person who was watch since Troughton took over as the Doctor. The entire fandom knows that companions leave and the Doctor changes. And yet, going by all the feels posts…)

tl;dr Way too much of this criticism seems to come off as “Why are they having silly emotions when they should rely on superior logic?”

Some rough concept pieces I created for a Nike pitch last year which sadly never came to fruition! In this line of work you often create things which end up never being used or seen by anybody! This was one of those cases.

"I tell you, Zoe – we get a mechanic, get her up and running again, hire a good pilot, maybe a cook; live like real people. A small crew; they must feel the need to be free, take jobs as they come. They never have to be under the heel of nobody ever again. No matter how long the arm of the Alliance might get, we’ll just get ourselves a little further."
