With local funding support from 64.6 Downtown—and curation by JustKids who also curates the Las Vegas Life Is Beautiful festival—Ft. Smith, Arkansas, is now two years into an effort to revitalize its downtown through installation of public art by an impressive list of internationally renowned artists. For the Universal Chapel at the end of Garrison Ave. in Ft. Smith, Spanish artist Okuda painted his unique mix of multi-colored geometric patterns merged with organic forms—a style he categorizes as “Pop-Surrealism”—covering all four walls and even the roof. He says his work often explores contradictions in or around the concepts like existentialism, the universe and the meaning of life, but told Dumbwall that ultimately his work is simply influenced by “Everything that I live, that I feel, that I hear, and that I see.” @okudart@unexpectedfs@justkidsofficial@646downtown

Erwin's Resolution: Analysis and Chapter 58 Predictions
Let’s be blunt here. Erwin knows how to lie.
Erwin and Pixis did not discuss the state of the government, agreements, and plans for three whole chapters just for both of them to drop the plan last moment. These are the two leaders of the military factions who are the most dedicated to saving humanity, regardless of the costs. This has been said repeatedly, both by those around them and by the characters themselves.
“If there’s anyone who can bring change, it will be someone willing to sacrifice what they care for. It will be someone who can throw aside their humanity, in order to defeat monsters. Someone who can’t sacrifice anything can’t ever change anything.”
These three men, plus Armin, are the ones who are willing to follow those words exactly. One of the men brought up here, Ian, has already sacrificed his life for the sake of humanity, showing the strength of the resolve of these characters.
Pixis even said that he is willing to become a villain in humanity’s eyes, and that he will take any actions necessary.
“Those Soldiers didn’t die on their own. They died due to my orders. This battle will decide humanity’s survival. And to win, I am willing to be called a murderer.”
As Pixis said, there only are two options. Either he goes along with the plan or opposes it, he doesn’t just give up on it. These are not characters that just let plans ‘break down.’ They are the ones willing to do whatever it takes.
