Still plodding along with my final University project. Took it upon myself to try and emphasise the work Thomas Young contributed to deciphering the Rosetta Stone; which may have been overlooked by Young’s Modulus, his vision and colour theories and the Young- Laplace equation. Hence the graphite study of an envisioned work space.
I shall get round to scanning this as soon as possible.
Sitting in college library browsing the latest Communication Arts magazine (focused on websites, tablets, mobile and social, environmental, illustrative, other interactive and basically all things design. Another reason why I need more cash: so I can subscribe to this mag!). Just look at these beautiful illustrations by Victo Ngai! I’m currently drooling and very inspired to draw or paint. I had my first day of math today. It was easy, should all go well. Waiting on my sister. My evening is going to be full of adult things: finish my taxes, finish my FAFSA, go to work, do more research on design internships this summer. Also I really need to work on building my portfolio! Not just design or digital wise but illustration/art wise too!

Week 28: I’m flipping through my sketchbooks realizing that I need to draw more. I know that sounds silly - but I mean that I need to re-embrace drawing for myself. There’s a lot going on and deadlines at every turn, and the only way I’m going to be proud of what I create is if I do it for me. Yes, feedback and constructive criticism are essential for my growth as a scientist and artist… but at the end of the day, I can’t please everyone and I’m going to have to get used to that.
Goldfish Paintings by Riusuke FukahoriThough he had been creating them for years, Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori busted out into the online art scene only last year with his three-dimensional goldfish paintings created by pouring resin.
Relevant to Ruin.
The current season of my life: waiting.
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. Romans 8:14-19
For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. Galatians 3:26 1
See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. John 3:1
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as offspring. Romans 9:8
Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. 1 John 3:2 (x)
This. Is. Brilliant
I want someone to write a book where Mermaids are the women thrown off ships when the sailors got afraid because having a woman on the boat is bad luck. And as they sink to the bottom legs tied together they change slowly until they can breath, until they can use their tied up legs to swim. And they drown sailors in revenge, luring them in by singing in their husky voices still stinging from the salt water they breathed.
