Though Thailand’s signature floral paintings are rich, vibrant collections of flowers in elaborate patterns, Thai painter and illustrator Manoth Kitticheewan uses a more pastel approach, focusing on the unique shape and substance of individual flowers. His floral creations are complemented by figure illustrations that might find a home in a children’s book. For the Tian remix, Kitticheewan has rendered a storybook image with the liberated vines and flowers of the Tian print winding skyward on one page and two cherub-faced, haloed children adorning the page facing it as they reach for the flowers that grow beyond their reaches. They are playfully clad in diapers made of Gucci’s signature pattern, a tribute to the classic made new again. — Alana Massey
alright, so i see a lot people worrying that this alternate Calliope who won the cherub battle for dominance is evil, and i can understand the concern, seeing as this gif is pretty disturbing:
however, notice how her cheeks are still green!! there’s no way this Callie is evil, since that’s literally not biologically possible (cherub-wise). also, the red bow tie isn’t anything strange or sinister; it’s always been there:
and the fact that she’s (most likely) typing in her brother’s blood colour doesn’t necessarily mean anything evil either:
remember Caliborn’s reason for wanting to type in his sister’s blood colour?
Caliborn wanted to show off to people that he won. that was his whole purpose of typing in green, as a symbol of his victory. considering the fact that the two cherubs that inhabit a single body are opposites in personality, it’s likely that this alternate Calliope is typing in red as maybe a tribute to her dead brother, a way to honour his death, because that’s the type of person she is; thoughtful, kind, and never vengeful.
now, of course, there’s always the option that this isn’t actually Calliope and it’s some type of trick, but if this really is alt Callie, i think Hussie’s just trying to screw with us by making her appear more sinister than she actually is
Out of all the characters in Homestuck, as we know so far Calliope and Caliborn are the ONLY two characters who were not made via ectobiology, but instead hatched from an egg produced by two unnamed and unknown cherubs who duked it out.
As we know from exposition, cherub children are depicted wearing clothing, and unless they magically become nudists upon reaching adulthood (which considering how weird everything else is for them, is not out of the question), it’s safe to assume that the two figures that were their parents were depicted ambiguously.
As can be seen, the mother is a green-blooded lithe female, while the father is a red-blooded musclebound male. If Calliope and Caliborn do in fact follow the trend of paradoxical origins, then it could very well be that their parents are Alt!Calliope and Lord English, as gross as that may seem.
