The New York Public Library just uploaded nearly 200,000 images you can use for free
The New York Public Library just released a treasure trove of digitized public domain images, everything from epic poetry from the 11th century to photographs of used car lots in Columbus, Ohio from the 1930s.
By Andrew J . Hawkins

Over 180,000 manuscripts, maps, photographs, sheet music, lithographs, postcards, and other images were released online Wednesday in incredibly high resolution, and are available to download using the library’s user-friendly visualization tool. It’s a nostalgist’s dream come true.

WE THE PEOPLE — ARE GREATER THAN FEAR
WE THE PEOPLE — PROTECT EACH OTHER
WE THE PEOPLE — DEFEND DIGNITY

Awesome.

Vent art

I’m sorry if the imagery is disturbing…. I rarely publish things like these,ms paint kind of gave me chance to try turn the negative into actual (VERY)quick clean artform, to rely some message or emotion. Vent art is a great tool, it is personal and might be criptic, so people can find what they want in it, maybe bringing them some delight from their own pain? I don’t like to publish gore for the sake of it, nor spread sads, so whenever I do publish these for you to see - it’s only because I like how the art turned out and I want to share it with you. So hopefully I didn’t make anyone sad or worry, it’s simply artwork, part of me (maybe not that nice part but I’m also only human >.< ). So hope you can enjoy it without disgust or feeling bad from it or for me - no need to! I like this kind of aesthetic too! *EDIT* venting is great on paper! It works much better to release pressure.

Abandoned asylums in America

Haunting photos of abandoned asylums across the U.S. have been published in a new book. Canadian photographer Matt Van Der Velde captured the eerie scenes of America’s disused hospitals, asylums and psychiatric facilities.

The collection features the private mental hospital where celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Zelda Fitzgerald and Truman Capote were treated. Another notable location includes the cells of an asylum that once held murderer Charles Manson.

The autopsy theater and morgue of Dr. Walter Freeman, known as the “Father of the Lobotomy,” is also shown. Van Der Velde, a veteran who has suffered PTSD, released the images as part of his book “Abandoned Asylums.” (Caters News)

See more asylum photos and our other slideshows on Yahoo News.

So the cat is out of the bag; SUN BAKERY IS COMING OUT THRU IMAGE COMICS IN 2017!!!! 

I am super hype for this. I’ve always wanted to do a series with Image, and I think Sun Bakery is gonna be perfect there. 

Sun Bakery issue #4 is still coming out next month, limited release, through Press Gang / Alternative Comics. If you already reserved yourself a copy– rad!! Get that shit!! You’ll be ahead of the curve :) 

I’d just like to thank Jason Leivian / Press Gang for helping get me started on the series in general. 

Some facts about the Image release:

- Starts Feb 2017 (issue #1) 

- We will be reprinting issues 1 - 4 for everyone who missed the series initially. 

- Aside from some mild design changes, the contents of issues 1 - 4 will remain the same, comics-wise. 

- Sun Bakery will continue after issue 4, brand new content in issue 5, including the return of SHARKNIFE!!

WHAT IS SUN BAKERY? It’s a comic book anthology magazine. meaning, it’s one ongoing magazine with a few different comic stories per issue. Some stories will be ongoing, some one-shots. Usually there will be around 3 stories per issue, with one or two being a “main” story that will carry the magazine through arcs. 

So far the main stories featured in Sun Bakery are AREM, DREAM SKILLS & BAT RIDER

This is going to be my most focused, concise, consistent foray into the realm of monthly comic book making. So I’m really hoping you all join me in 2017. If you’ve HEARD about Sun Bakery / my work but never seen it in print, please support the series now! It’s going to be rad rad rad. 

Thanks all. Something to look forward to in 2017
