If there’s one thing we know for certain, it’s that the world needs more melancholy space-cats holding muffins. Moon Muffin is one of the latest paintings by Indiana based artist Mab Graves and is part of her Spectrum solo exhibition at the Auguste Clown Gallery in Fitzroy, Victoria, Australia through May 3, 2015.

With a style reminiscent of Margaret Keane (the subject of Tim Burton’s 2014 film Big Eyes), the Spectrum paintings feature a world of big-eyed Blythes as space explorers and goddesses along with a host of animal sidekicks and surreal scientific specimens.

Head over to the Auguste Clown Gallery website to view the entire Spectrum exhibit and visit Mab Graves’ website to check out even more of her artowrk.

Yaniel, by Kate Burmak

Kate Burmak is another amazing artist who has become one of my heroines in the fantasy art world. I particularly love her work for Paizo’s Pathfinder series. As well as great heroines, Kate offers a stellar selection of demons, monsters, battles, deities, and landscapes for the fantasy nerd in all of us. I’ve used Kate’s awesome work in the past and keep an eye on her galleries for future writeups.

The paladin Yaniel is a seriously badass figure from Pathfinder lore and I absolutely love Kate’s depiction of her here. According to the lore, Yani was a demon-hunting crusader who, after conflicts with her order’s hierarchy, ventured into the demon-infested Worldwound to rage a one-woman war against the hellish hordes. After two years she returned from the ‘Wound after rescuing another party of crusaders. Though Yaniel perished on her subsequent crusade against the demons, her sword, Radiance, remains an artifact in the game with special powers for paladin characters who wield it.

Now I love wearing black as much as the next person, even in Spring summer I still manage to wear black, but when it comes to makeup.. that’s where I love to introduce a bit of colour, especially when the sun starts coming out. I think a lip is always the obvious choice when it comes to adding some colour so I thought i’d show you some pics from a shoot I did recently to give you some ideas of how you can add colour into your eye makeup as another alternative, the only question is How Bold will you go?

onlythegeste asked:

I started following you because of Endeavour. And then recently there's been Daredevil, and that's always a plus because who doesn't like Matt Murdock?

Wilson Fisk, probably, but nobody asked him.  

Aw yis! Endeavour and Daredevil! You’ve definitely come to the right place. \o/
