art and america


Illustrations from Nueva Corónica y Buen Gobierno, c. 1615, by Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala (1535-1616)

Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala, a Quechua nobleman, sent this hand-written chronicle to King Philip III of Spain (1578-1621). Inside the manuscript, Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala included a narrative of Inca and pre-Inca ruling times (if sometimes inaccurate) as well as description on the Spanish colonial rule following their conquest from the 1530′s. Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala was known for his outspoken views on the horrible treatment that natives from the Andean Mountains were subjected to by the Spanish.

Please draw America and Austria one beside the other :3c

They do look awfully similar with the glasses and hair and whatnot, but I say Austria’s hair is more brushed back at the front before coming back down, as America’s hair starts to drop down right beside the part. America, in my opinion, also has a more masculine structure than Austria does. also the hair curl thingy is more choppy in America’s than Austria’s, which is kind of whispy and more curly (like a bass clef, woah) 

Hi all! I wanted to start posting a little more and let you get to know me. Although you can tell from my dash that I’m OBSESSED with SPN, I also love Cap and Chris Evans.

I’ve been trying my hand at writing, but I typically spend free time drawing. (Not as much lately. Grad school life, yo). I drew this a couple years ago, but it’s one I’m especially proud of. I simply titled it “Captain America.”

Do you draw? Do you write? Are you passionate about something else? I love hearing about what sets people’s hearts on fire. Feel free to share some of the things you’re proud of with me! I’d love to hear about it. :)

That totally American feel when you take your kid to the ER for something because the pediatrician said to and then a month later you get a bill where 75% of the visit wasn’t covered by insurance because apparently the ER doc works for a group that is not covered by your insurance plan
