Hey, White Americans. We Need to Talk. →

postcardsfromspace:

According to a Pew Research survey, only 37% of white Americans think the events in #Ferguson raise important issues about race.

Okay, fellow white people. We need to talk.

Let me tell you a story: I was an angry punk teenager. Not violent, but I did a shitton of trespassing, and I got into a…

DO NOT STAY SILENT

I KNOW THIS IS A FASHION BLOG AND NOT A NEWS BLOG,… BUT I REFUSE TO SIT HERE AND BE IGNORANT WHEN I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP

This is really intense stuff. All my love to the people in Ferguson and to everyone who is supporting them.

Boosting because it’s too important not to.

Tayarisha Poe: You've got to be dumb and stubborn to get good →

creativesomething:

“A whole world of thinkers and creators would have died before they began if they had listened to the people telling them what not to do.”

There’s a certain level of naivety that must be in-place for creativity to occur.

When we get too comfortable with the way things are – or when we…

This is excellent, and Tayarisha Poe is awesome!

And here’s the Sea Dragon I sculpted at last summer’s Festival of Arts, and painted at this year’s Festival. These photos don’t really capture the iridescent metallic sheen of the skin, but you can kind of make it out on her head. I’m extremely pleased with how this piece turned out, especially since my plan to put an LED in the tip of her tendril failed abysmally. Phosphorescent acrylic paint came to the rescue, though, and now all of the white dots on her crest, neck, face, and tendril tip glow in the dark.

Super sculpey, original and firm, over a wire/wire-mesh armature, painted with cel-vinyl, acrylic, and interference powders.
