Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.
so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell

THANK YOU, WANG BAOGUO CHINESE PHOTOGRAPHY MAGAZINE FOR THE FEATURE.
Remarkable. I just think about how much time is spent by people and propaganda making people with vaginas feel shame about them, then I look at how their appearance occurs in nature and it’s nothing but beauty.
I don’t usually do this, but I just want to signal boost this kickstarter in the hopes that it might make it. This is going to be a solely oil-painted-by hand-on-stretched-canvas animation and the little previews already look pretty awesome. Film is to be made by Break Thru Films studio. This integration of fine-art and animation just looks amazing. (I personally would love to work on something like that hahaha :P)
The Full Body Project by Leonard Nimoy
In 1808, Napoleon, running out of scenic holiday destinations to invade, somehow totally forgot about his neighbor to the south, Spain. So that year he dispatched his troops, kicking off the Peninsular War.
Only 20 years old and working as a barmaid in the town of Valdepenas, Juana Galan was not expecting a surge of French soldiers to come storming through her village. But on June 6, that’s exactly what happened. At that time, most of the men were fighting Napoleon’s forces elsewhere in the nation. Juana, unfazed by things like rifles and Frenchmen and French riflemen, began organizing the women in her village to form a trap for the approaching army.
When the army arrived, Juana and her friends were ready. They dumped boiling water and oil on the French troops, which by all accounts will instantly take the fight out of pretty much anyone. Then Juana, armed with only a batan, beat back the heavily armed French cavalry with her squad of village women, almost none of whom were armed with guns.
The French retreated, giving up on capturing not just Juana’s town but the entire province of La Mancha, leading to ultimate Spanish victory. Today, she is seen in Spain as a national hero, a symbol of resistance, strength, patriotism, feminism and hitting shit with a stick.
That’s one hell of a portrait.

Trying my hand at combining felt and embroidery, using one of my “default doodles” - a snail whose slime trail is the starry sky (I think of him in my head as The Cosmic Snail).
It turned into a pillow! There it is on one of our armchairs.
"Both embroidery and crocheting are techniques that require time. I use these techniques in order to make a connection between manual work and the processes of nature; creating thread structures similar to the structures that make a plant for example…. Crocheting brings us closer to nature, forcing us to look at it differently, to explore its structures and processes. The idea is to take part in the weave to continue what nature started, transforming it according to its natural flow and structure, emphasizing the manual work within this creative process." - Ana Teresa Barboza
