Haven’t drawn a monster lady in a while. Been wanting to draw a Naga/mermaid character for a long time.
I once told a joke about a straight person.
They came after me in droves.
Each one singing the same:
Don’t fight fire with fire.
What they mean is: Don’t fight fire with anything.
Do not fight fire with water.
Do not fight fire with foam.
Do not evacuate the people.
Do not sound the alarms.
Do not crawl coughing and choking and spluttering to safety.
Do not barricade the door with damp towels.
Do not wave a white flag out of the window.
Do not take the plunge from several storeys up.
Do not shed a tear for your lover trapped behind a wall of flame.
Do not curse the combination of fuel, heat, and oxygen.
Do not ask why the fire fighters are not coming.
When they say: Don’t fight fire with fire.
What they mean is: Stand and burn.”
when men dress up as women or white people wear hijabs or darken their skin in order to “see how hard it is,” they’re simply admitting that they believe those members of those groups are untrustworthy to the point that they can’t honestly relay the reality of their own experiences.
If you’re Amani Terrell, you put on your bikini and walk up and down the streets of Hollywood, hoping that baring your skin will help make a statement that every body type is beautiful.
daniel stoupin, a doctoral candidate in marine biology at the university of queensland, has photographed a variety of coral species using full spectrum light to reveal fluorescent pigments that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. each piece (click pic for name) is from the great barrier reef. given the complexity of the techniques used, which involve time-lapse and stereoscopic and focus stacked photography, the images take up to ten hours to produce in the lab.
Artist Turns Ball Pit Into An Insane Mechanical Playground
Over the past few years, we’ve written a lot about Niklas Roy. The work of the German artist, and so-called “inventor of useless things” has become something of a fixture on our site, so it’s with great pleasure that we bring you the newest in innocuous ingenuity.
Suck the Balls! The aptly-titled pneumatic playground Roy has designed for the Goethe Institute, Krakow, makes us yearn back to our childhoods. Featuring a massive ball pit surrounded by 80 meters of pneumatic tubing, it’s exactly the right kind of useless that produces the sort of documentation video you’ll remember for the rest of your day:
From Roy’s website:
The installation consists of a ball pit and an 80 meters long pneumatic tube transport, which fills up the entire historic staircase of the Potocki Palace in Kraków. When entering the ball pit, the cabin’s lights switch on and the ball suction action starts! The visitor can operate the peculiar machinery with a suction spout. When sucking the balls which are surrounding his feet, the balls race through the transparent pipe system, creating a visually stunning scene. The journey of the little balls ends in a container above the ball pit, waiting for the climax of the operation: When the visitor pulls the release handle of the container, a fountain of balls splashes down onto his head in a joyful shower.
A helmet is provided to keep the hairstyle in excellent condition throughout the whole experience.
