My submission for Every/Body Zine!  Feeling self conscious about my body, especially while wearing dresses, is something I struggle with all the freaking time.  But sometimes you gotta stop thinking about how chubs your arms are, or how that dress hugs your belly, or your butt and just go outside!

Once it’s no longer three degrees outside, I’m gonna try and wear  dresses/skirts more often.

Ann Macarayan Pins Up Ramona Flowers And Sends Pokémon To Gravity Falls

By Lauren Davis

One of the things I particularly enjoy about looking at art school students’ work is that, while the students have their own unique visual flourishes, they’re also in a period of intense experimentation. Looking over Minneapolis College of Art and Design student Ann Macarayan's work, I can see details that could very well come to typify her style: little marks that add emotion to the faces, red and blue noses that make her characters a tad more cartoony, careful attention to the fit and wear of her clothing. But she's constantly testing out new styles and media as she learns and grows as an artist.



Second part of my illustrations for digital illustration.  Since I made that quartz queen, I wanted to keep on that theme of crystals and gems.  Along side a character portrait, we had also had to develop an environment or scene, which is something I NEVER draw (I hate drawing backgrounds you guys).  So this was a fun experiment, and I’m actually really happy with how it came out!

Hey all, I watched the first episode again last night and I’m wondering what everyone’s thoughts on the new pros are. Obvs we already love Artim but I’m not really feelin’ the other two. Granted Keo didn’t get much of a chance being the first one eliminated, and his partner seemed like a handful. I was surprised at how much I really didn’t like Allison Holker. I enjoy her on SYTYCD, she’s a wonderful contemporary dancer and talented choreographer but she’s not a ballroom dancer and it shows. Our pros have been dancing ballroom since they were old enough to walk; they’ve all won numerous awards for their ballroom dancing and know that world and those moves inside and out, backwards and forwards. Watching Allison dance with her celebrity partner I found myself thinking, “That doesn’t look right, she doesn’t have the right hand placement, she isn’t moving fast enough,” etc. When she danced with the other pros it was clear that they left her in the dust. Taking a moment to think about it it really doesn’t seem fair that she got the job since she’s not a ballroom dancer-I suspect that she was offered the job because of all the choreography she does for Macy’s Stars of Dance. The pro slot should have gone to Lindsay or Jenna or Oksana or any other actual ballroom dancer-like Kim Johnson who was in the audience the first night. Anyone else feel the same?

Dievo meilė – 2014-09-12

Dievas yra vienintelis ir nėra kito šalia jo; o mylėti jį visa širdimi, visu protu ir visomis jėgomis bei mylėti artimą kaip save patį svarbiau už visas deginamąsias atnašas ir kitokias aukas.
Evangelija pagal Morkų 12, 32 – 33

Mylėkime Dievą iš visos širdies, atnaujindami ją! Dabar mūsų širdis paskendusi šio pasaulio negandose, nepakantume, puikybėje, egoizme, keršto troškime, godume. Tad mes…
