“Pregnancy Cravings” by @tosquinha, inspired by this beautiful gifset by @sansaregina

“Tywin dreamed that his son would be a great knight, that his daughter would be a queen. He dreamed they would be so strong and brave and beautiful that no one would ever laugh at them.”

My idea behind this piece was to depict Joanna, pregnant with the twins, enjoying a quiet morning with Tywin at Casterly Rock, debating about whether the baby will be a boy or a girl, and sharing their hopes and ambitions for their first child. @tosquinha did such a beautiful job, thank you again! 💕

Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
  the whole earth is full of his glory.”

At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.

I can’t for a second believe this dabtastic tumblr shitpost in human form is 32 years old ie. OLDER THAN MUSTAFA/DAIVARI/JACK GALLAGHER no, nope. Not having it.
He’s the peppy, energetic, annoying baby brother backstage who deserves all the noogies he’s getting to that perfectly pomade hair. 

He’s gonna be sending everyone fanfics he finds amusing and having competitions on who has better fanart with Mustafa Ali and diverting their driving routes for Pokemon Go, and yelling at Youtube comment sections and writing five-page essays about Legend of Zelda conspiracy theories before he inevitably gets dragged off by Mustafa/Jack to adult. 
I’d cut him some slack though—-he’s had it rough growing up being homeless and shit, so if he wants to dab/do nerd things then please child be one with your inner nerd forever. 

Also one of the easier guys to draw because he has a face practically made for Shonen anime. 

resolutionblue  asked:

in the ks it says you were a part of a museum installation? tell us about that!

I’ll gladly elaborate! This is kind of an interesting bit of TJ lore haha. 

There’s a modern art museum in St. Louis called the Pulitzer, and I was involved in their exhibit called Kota: Digital Excavations in African Art. Kota are ancient African reliquary figures created to watch over and protect the sacred physical remains of ancestors. There are about ~2000 of them still in existence, and what is known about them is very limited. A mathematician named Frederick Cloth came up with an algorithm to collect and sort the data that is known about the Kota that have been preserved. 

Back in 2015, when I was still working with Rampant Interactive, I was the lead programmer on a project to create an interactive digital component to the exhibit involving Unity3D, a huge 50-inch touchscreen, and four projectors to shine images on all four walls of the exhibit room. The aim of the installation was to tie the physical objects together with the data that is known about the reliquary figures. Viewers of the exhibit can use the touch screen to visualize the data, compare and contrast the Kota, and draw their own conclusions about the correlations between the Kota’s distinct physical appearance and the data collected about them. 

I’m actually in this pic to the center left. This was when I was first starting to grow out my locks haha.

Look at baby me, it’s hard to believe this was 2 years ago! Anyways, you can read more about my involvement with the project here; and you can see my post with more pictures of the project here

I loved working on this project because things like this really help bridge the gap between contemporary art and videogames, and I think museums should work with game developers a lot more often. 

Thank you for asking about this, it was great to reminisce!
