Space Dandy: 9th episode: Plants Are Living Things Too, Baby
a cosplay photo so old it was taken on actual film (which explains the streaks from my scanner) and the con we were at doesn’t even exist anymore. it was around 13 years ago actually now that I think about it.
Concept Art: The unseen worlds of Megaman Legends. Definitely can see inspiration coming from Miyazaki’s “Castle in the Sky”.
I still bitterly hate Capcom to this day for the cancellation of the final entry in this series.

At the entry of the main shrine complex at the Fushimi-Inari Shrine in Kyoto, a giant temple gate is flanked by kitsune, the messengers of the Goddess (Kami) Inari. This one is holding a jewel in it’s mouth.

Kehinde Wiley’s paintings often blur the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation. Rendered in a realistic mode–while making references to specific Old Master paintings–Wiley creates a fusion of period styles, ranging from French Rococo, Islamic architecture and West African textile design to urban hip hop and the “Sea Foam Green” of a Martha Stewart Interiors color swatch. Wiley’s slightly larger than life size figures are depicted in a heroic manner, as their poses connote power and spiritual awakening. Wiley’s portrayal of masculinity is filtered through these poses of power and spirituality.
One of my favorite artists working today. His work is fucking amazing and beautiful.
