Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Zuko the dweebs, being all BFF and hanging out together, probably discussing stuff about Republic City and how awesome and cool it’s gonna be (well, before sh*t got real of course ;XD )

When your wolf children got really drunk last night and now you have to clean up their mess because they’re “too hungover”

send me an expression and a character using this and I’ll draw them

So paint tool sai glitched out and crashed while trying to save this at the very end, but thanks to google I was able to find a solution and save my art and my tears.

Here’s some Hiveswap art! With every passing day I grow more and more doubtful that it will ever release but hey, I still love it and await the day it will finally come (if that day exists at all)

Art thing me and olibathore did
Nice mario kart does happen sometimes, but henryk will never stop being a  sore loser. Maybe if he stopped trying to play while wearing gloves, he’d do a wee better and stop [muffled sulking]

John Grade

“TOLL”

Portland Art Museum, Portland, OR.

2015


“Toll was inspired by a poem called “The Want Bone”, written by Robert Pinsky in 1990. The context of the sea in the poem and connections between wear and absence relate to the specific material used to make the sculpture. The wood was salvaged from the lower hull of the historic schooner Wawona, a section of planks that was continuously under water for more than a century (see the Wawona project and Wawona Series for related projects). The wear and degradation of the wood is most evident in the small gaps and voids in the sculpture’s surfaces. Sliced cylindrical voids present in numerous areas of the sculpture were once filled with oak dowels called trunnels. The trunnels joined the Douglas fir planks to the ribs of the vessel. Color variation leached into the grain from copper cladding, wrought iron, fish oils and decay. Many areas of the wood with the deepest color have become brittle and prone to splintering so an alternating cross-grain lamination tapering in thickness throughout the sculpture was chosen for its structural quality as well as for its aesthetic.”
