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.

US Endovascular (USE) is engaged in the procurement, licensing & distribution of medical device products used in peripheral endovascular and coronary procedures. The fundamental premise is to obtain next-generation, clinically-relevant products from manufacturers and market through its streamlined sale channel in order to reduce costs and maximize value.

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. READ MORE

Real churches save souls. It’s just that simple. If there is no love in that church, if the pastor has no time for the people, if the people are corrupting the purpose of the church, if the pastor is corrupting the purpose of the church, or if the main goal is to obtain a profit then it is not a church. It is a business or it is a condemned building and they don’t even know it. (Pun definitely intended) We are at war people! No time to play with money and gossip! We need to save the wounded!

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!

CONNIE MAHESWARAN - If you could enter a book world, which would it be?

as of right now probably the “The Unwanteds” universe, as long as i would end up on Artime.

PERIDOT - How are you with technology?

i’d consider myself pretty good. i spend a lot of time on the internet so when things go a-wire i’ve gotta know at least a little bit of how to get things back to normal.
