ga prints

3D printed and customized Death gun mask. I have no interest in the anime this is from, but this mask was too cool not to make. The print took 3 days ( I gave it too many supports and high infill, simple mistakes). The eye covers and strap are from a broken gas mask and the lights were taken from a R2 D2 toy. Printed with a Da Vinci 1.0 ai0.

Art Show Tips for Newbies

So a friend asked for some tips–he has another friend who’s a good artist, but doesn’t know where to begin in selling his work.  I wrote up a long list of tips and advice for him–and figured hey, there might be a few people online who might find this helpful too!  

So here’s what I’ve learned from selling my work over the last 4 years!

So~ Here is that Dabi thing I told you about?? Idk if it’s going to be a series yet, but I really wanted to play around with this idea and just get this out of my system! So, I really hope you guys like this??? This is implied Dabi x Reader, and will turn into that if I do happen to turn this into a series.

You stared at your shopping list, eyes tired and heavy, sighing as you tried to figure out why you were running these errands for your boss. Black hair dye. Why? Why did you need to buy this for her? You mulled over these questions as you reached for a box, squeezing your eyes shut to hold back a yawn. Your hand crashed into someone else’s and you snapped your eyes open.

The first thing you noticed was the white gas mask printed on his black cotton face mask. The second, his bright blue eyes underneath shaggy black hair. You could barely see his bright red roots.

You pulled your hand back and shoved your list into the basket on your arm. “Sorry about that,” you mumbled. He picked the box up and held it out to you, the box resting in the palm of his gloved hand. His bare fingers tapped against the cardboard. You took it from him, glancing up at his face. He was watching you through a pair of thick rimmed black glasses with clear lenses that seemed to highlight the deep, dark bruises under his eyes. You looked away to avoid staring. “Thank you,” you mumbled as you dropped the box in your basket. He lifted his hand to his temple and flicked his fingers back towards you, as if saying ‘you’re welcome’. You smiled. “Don’t talk?” you asked.

He shook his head. You shrugged and looked back down at your list sitting at the bottom of your basket. “I’ll leave you to it, then,” you said. You stepped around him. “Thank you, again.”

Before you could get too far, he reached out to touch your elbow. The motion startled you. You looked back at him. He had grabbed a box for himself, tucking it under one arm, and motioned out into the aisle with the other. “Do you wanna walk with me?” you asked. He nodded and stepped ahead of you. You followed. He shoved his hands into the pockets of his belted black jeans, the sleeves of his black furry jacket slouching over his hands. You could barely see the white of his shirt underneath. Taking a large step forward, you tilted your head to see the design and giggled. “I like your shirt. I have a sweatshirt like that, with the punk bunny on it, but mine is pink and black,” you said.

He arched an eyebrow at you and his shoulders shook. You gaped. “Are you laughing at me? That’s rude, don’t be rude,” you grumbled. He shrugged his shoulders this time. You fell in step next to him. “Why would you wanna walk through a store with a stranger?” you asked him. He shrugged again, this time pulling his hands from his pockets. He reached out and pointed to your basket, opening his hand with the palm up. You place the handles of the basket in it hesitantly. He took it, and your list, and picked up his pace. You made a sound of protest. “Hey, c’mon, I can do my own shopping!” you called after him.

His shoulders shook again as he walked. You followed him, watching as he grabbed the things off your list, shooting questions at him that he would wordlessly answer. When all your items were gathered, he wandered over to the front with you. As you paid, you glanced up at him shyly and introduced yourself. He tilted his head and looked at the ceiling, as if thinking, and slowly raised a hand. He picked up a pen from the cashier’s counter and scribbled a character on the back of your hand: Dabi.

“Well, it was nice to meet you, Dabi,” you said, gathering up your bags. He nodded and stepped out of line with you, heading towards the door on the opposite end of the store. “Have a good day!” you called after. He lifted a hand and waved to you, hiding the note he had taken from your basket. Dabi pulled his other hand out of his pocket, being careful to shift the box of hair dye out of sight as he left the store. He had swiped a business card from your wallet when he grabbed your attention. It had the location of your work place printed along the top, with your boss’s name embossed on the bottom.

“Wonder if Shigaraki would mind if I ran a little late today,” he muttered to himself.

Residency Interview Survival Guide (part 1): 10 program questions that demand answers

Interview season is in full swing for the fourth year med students, and it was only but a few months ago that I was in your shoes.

Now that I’ve been on both sides, I want to share some topics I wished I had taken more seriously, and why I think you should, too when you’re creating your rank list. **EDIT: @agreekdoctor made an excellent point: ask these questions of several people, residents and program leadership, to check for any differences.

1. How many sites do residents train at? Very few programs these days have their residents stay at one hospital for the entirety of their training. Find out how far apart these sites are and what that means for your possible future commute, vehicle of choice, and gas budget.

2. How do meals work? As an intern, you’ll spend most of your year in the hospital. You are going to go home exhausted and make less than minimum wage for the hours your keep (this isn’t a joke, this is financial truth). So find out: is the hospital food edible? Do you get a cafeteria discount? How do interns and residents eat at work and off? Is it a meal plan or is a point system like back in college?

3. How do residents get prepped for the boards? Some programs make it a big priority to hold lectures or “boards prep crash courses” to insure that all their residents pass. Others throw the MKSAP books at you and tell you Godspeed.

4. Do the residents here hang out after work aka what do residents do for fun? This innocuous question (I’ve provided two phrasings) can tell you a LOT. This gives you a hint to some unspoken criteria that residencies might be considering: supportive, cohesive teammates versus isolated gunners, married residents versus single people, etc. This also tells you if people LIKE each other. AND tells you what the hell is there to do on your days off. 

5. What’s the policy on moonlighting? Moonlighting is the term for when a licensed resident works a few shifts for monetary compensation to bolster our meager salaries. Some programs forbid it, others are totally cool. If you know that you need to support a family, have massive student loans, or want to live in a city with a high cost of living, this will invariably become a consideration. You want to be able to have this choice.

6. Is there an education stipend? My program does not have a stipend. We were told “it was in the works.” This is VERY IMPORTANT. Without an education stipend, you will not get reimbursed for some very expensive shit like:

-Step 3 ($830 dollars)

-UWorld Qbank for Step 3 (from $100-300 depending on months)

-Licensure (+$1000)

-DEA license to write for controlled substances (+$1000)

-Expenses to go to required educational conferences (travel expenses, lodging, food, gas, cost to print the poster if you’re presenting)

-medical apps, new equipment, textbooks, study aids ($$$)

7. What electronic resources are made available to residents? This is the most polite way of asking “Do I have to pay out-of-pocket for Uptodate and Epocrates?” the top two websites and apps we use. Subscriptions to both cost money.

8. What things are provided free of charge by the program? Ask because that which is provided free at one program does not necessarily hold true at another. Extra tip: see if there’s money given to you for moving, because moving can be costly.

9. Have there been or will there be changes to program leadership? I used to think this was the stupidest question. And I now retract that opinion. This does matter to the continuity and management of the program. A bumpy, drama-filled transition in leadership leads to bad feelings that trickles down to the way attendings and other leaders of the program treat residents. The peds program at my hospital had really big changes in leadership and it’s resulted in really disorganized preparation for interview season, which has been incredibly painful for the applicants and the residents.

10. Do the senior residents who will be graduating feel ready to go into the world as practicing physicians? If all of them are terrified or apprehensive, YOU will certainly not be ready for the real world by the time you are in their shoes.

Print design

Dit zijn de verschillende prints die ik heb gemaakt. Ze zijn ontworpen aan de hand van verschillende aspecten. Ik wou er graag iets Japans in terug laten komen, en heb daarom gekeken naar verschillende traditionele Japanse prints. Uiteindelijk ga ik de bovenste print gebruiken voor een van mijn kledingstukken. Deze print is eenvoudig, strak en simpel, en dit straalt naar mijn idee een klein beetje het Japanse uit maar geeft de elementen ook ritme.
