other people's amazing art

A little bird told me today is @laskulls birthday! So I took the chance to draw fabulous Hal *^* Happy birthday dear ♥ I truly hope you like it! 

skelior  asked:

Do you have any public playlists on Spotify (or, well, a Spotify account)? Your music taste is awesome, and I love snooping around other peoples playlists! <3 (also, your art is amazing and you're such a wonderful creature, ily)

Yeah, sure I do! 

My music taste is all over the place so I’ll share a couple playlists: 

Fury is orchestral pieces (classical, game music, scores, etc.) I like a lot of orchestral music but these are some of my favourites (and very heavy on strings: the best).

Driving is a ginormous playlist rammed with anything and everything I like. I do a lot of distance of driving so this is usually what I listen to then. Band focused rather than orchestral. 

Folkin’ & Folkin part 2 is all just soft and lovely (sometimes - but not limited to) folk type music. 

Oldies is like my guilty pleasure playlist. There’s some gems, there’s also some cheese. Anything from the 70′s, 80′s, 90′s and early 00′s is rammed in here.

i’ve never submitted a picture i hope this works?? oh dear .u.“

ok so i’ve probably sent in 5 questions all by my self except on anon and if u couldn’t guess, i’m the one who suggested a mad science tea party!! then suddenly i was like “omg, i wanna draw that”… i think simon (my character) and nathan could get along well, they both are interested in how things work, biology, and lookin a little off, among other things (definitely not dissections, what, noo…. psh…)

i’d like to think nathan’s explaining the plot of re-animator, bc simon hasn’t seen that but he’d like that too tbh

collab with @bente36!(they lined and i colored♡)I had so much fun working on this with you!!;;O;; screams thank you so much for collabing with me!

 …so i just drew them both. The (legitimately unintended) theme seems to be “Reynolds is a shit” and I’m comfortable with that. I saw this post while I was brainstorming and it spiraled away from me.

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD

Look friends, none of these sketchy ass drawings (or the sketchy ass WIPS I still have to finish) can adequately convey how fantastic Sweet and Savory by @sapphyrelily and @seijouho is. It’s an absolutely PHENOMENAL HanaMatsuIwaOi story that will make you laugh and cry and have way too many feelings at 2 in the morning when you have work the next day. ;^;

It’s a text based story, so the selfies/scenes/etc. aren’t explicitly described for the most part, so hopefully I didn’t stray too far from the writers’ visions! (although if I did they should totally tell me)(*wink*wink*)(*hint*hint*)(*NUDGE*NUDGE*)

So yeah. Go read it, tell the authors how amazing they are, and then come talk to me so I have someone to spew my feelings at. :P

14-year-old Muslim girl dreams to be the first hijabi ballet dancer

A young Muslim ballerina wants other girls like her to know they can make a change — no matter their beliefs or the clothes they choose to wear.

Stephanie Kurlow converted to Islam with her family in 2010. Sadly, her conversion led to her feeling the need to give up ballet. She wanted to wear her hijab to dance classes in the southwest suburbs of Sydney, Australia, where she lives with her family, but she couldn’t find a school who would accept her.

“All I want is to share the beauty of the amazing ballet art form and inspire other young people who maybe don’t feel so confident to follow their dreams due to the outfits they wear, religious beliefs or lack of opportunities,” Kurlow told Mashable Australia. “I want these young people to have opportunities, young people who think it’s not possible to make their dream a reality because of the pressure from the many phobias and racism in our society.”

Kurlow has been dancing since she was 2 years old, and desperately wanted to be a professional ballerina. She started a crowd-funding campaign to try to make her dream a reality — and to help other young people who feel like they can’t pursue their endeavors without discrimination.

“In this day and age there is a lack of facilitation for youth who are disengaged or of a different religion or race,” Kurlow wrote in the campaign description. “I plan on bringing the world together by becoming the very first Muslim ballerina so that I can inspire so many other people to believe in themselves and pursue their dreams.”

Kurlow is trying to raise $10,000, which she states is to cover her tuition, supplies and competition entry for one year. She believes if she receives the right training she can pass on her knowledge and skills to girls who have the same aspiration. Once she trains, she hopes to open a ballet school to cater to a diverse group of ballerinas.

“I want to become a professional ballet dancer and receive my qualifications so that I can open a performing arts school that caters to children and young people of different faiths, races and backgrounds,” she said. “I believe that one day all children and young people will have an opportunity to perform and create, without sacrificing their values, beliefs or looks and my campaign is one step closer to achieving this.”

They are big plans for a 14-year-old, but she says the project is also to raise awareness about issues many people in our society still face. Her initiative follows in the footsteps of her mum, Alsu, who opened a performing arts academy in the Sydney suburb of Bankstown that teaches ballet, martial arts and aboriginal art classes to the local community.

No matter if she achieves her goal, Kurlow is happy to add her voice to the discussion. “I don’t want people to be seen for the clothes they wear, I want them to be seen as the person they are and how they want to change the world,” she said.
