TAEMIN HAN Friendship Route (From Jumin Doge AU) :
((You play as College Classmate MC)) Help Taemin convince his dad [Jumin] to let him adopt a doggo

Pro Tip: Say you like ‘Doge’ in every option. Get 100 hearts from him

Decided to mess around with this doggo-loving memelord
[He is 20 years old but is stuck with his parents until he graduates!]
Trying to draw with the MM art style was so fun *v* b
((I found that it’s also similar to my regular, non-sketchy art style except for the rendering hahaha))

I want to believe there’s a doggo memer 2nd-gen RFA member. Let me live lolol
[Jumin Han render from here;;; I wanted to keep his talksprite same as in the game… but kinda older haha]

This Parks & Rec video clip popped up and The Dresden Files was still on the brain… so here we are. I thought it fit pretty well (almost made it Mouse instead of Thomas buttt he’s too dramatic to pass up)

Anyway Harry Dresden is a huge nerd and if he didn’t fry all electronics in his immediate vicinity you know he’d have Netflix on in the corner while brewing potions and whatnot.

  • Lena Luthor: Mother!
  • Lillian Luthor: Hey!
  • Lena: Hey! This is my girlfriend Kara, and this is Kara's boyfriend James.
  • James: Hi.
  • Lillian: Hey! Oh. Wait, sorry. What's the situation?
  • Lena: What do you mean?
  • Lilian: How does this work?
  • Lena: Kara is straight but she's gay for me and she's straight for James and James is really straight for Kara. And I hate James.
  • James: It's not that complicated.
  • Kara: No.
  • Lillian: Oh. Yeah. Sure.
  • [In confessional]
  • Lillian: The thing about youth culture is I don't understand it.

These incredible photographs by Omar Victor Diop, a Senegalese photographer, were brought to my attention by a twitter follower. This series, entitled Project Diaspora, was inspired by both Diop’s sense of isolation during an artist residency in Europe, and then subsequent wonder upon discovering the massive academic collection, Image of the Black In Western Art. From the New York Times:

“As a Francophone African,” he said, “I had never heard of these individuals.”

He has since made up for that oversight, producing “Project Diaspora,” a set of 12 images Mr. Diop adapted from artworks created in Europe from the 15th to the 19th centuries. They represent outstanding individuals who lived in Europe and illustrate the historical depth of the ties that have linked the Western world to the African continent.

In each image, Mr. Diop poses as the person in the original engraving, painting or sculpture. “I enjoy the idea that, contrary to the conventional self-portrait, I am just an accessory,” he said during a Skype interview. “My goal is to bear witness to the contribution of Africans to universal civilization.”

I’ve made the imposition here to include some of the original artworks beside a few of the photographs from the series, a testament to both the accuracy of the recreations, and well as to underscore the symbolism of Diop’s interpretations.

You can read about each artwork and individual that inspired these works at the New York Times article also linked above, at Diop’s online gallery for Project Diaspora, or learn more about individuals like Don Miguel De Castro, ambassador from Kongo to Dutch Brazil here at Medievalpoc.

French artist Pierre-Adrien Sollier recreates world-famous paintings with one playful difference: he swaps out all of the people and animals in each piece with versions that look just like plastic Playmobil figures. Their unblinking black eyes and frozen smiles are as whimsical as they are thoroughly creepy.

No matter what the style, from Seurat’s Pointillism to Dalí’s Surrealism to Hopper’s American realism, and even the fantastic craziness of The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch, each of Sollier’s stunning acrylic paintings is instantly recognizable as the masterpiece it represents.

Head over to Pierre-Adrien Sollier’s website to check out more of his delightful Playmobil paintings.
