These, for me, are the two most depressing paintings in western history. They were painted by post-impressionist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, a man who, due to inbreeding, was born with a genetic disorder that prevented his legs from growing after they were broken. After being so thoroughly mocked for is appearance, he became an alcoholic, which is what eventually caused his institutionalization and death. His only known romantic relations were with prostitutes.
And then he paints something like this which is so beautiful and tender and sentimental. It seems like the couple in bed really loves each other—cares about each other. Wakes up happy to look at each other. And I see that love and passion and I wonder how lonely he must have been. I wonder how he could paint something like this without it breaking his heart.
Maybe they say artists should create what they know, not because its unbelievable when they extend themselves beyond their experiences, but because when they pull it off with such elegance, it’s so damn unbearable to look at. I hate thinking of Lautrec, wondering about the lovers he created and knowing it was beyond his experience. Creating something that he knows is beautiful and knows he’ll never really understand.
Multi-disclipinary stylishness! Beautiful b&w photography of an athletic dance performance punctuated by brilliant mograph elements.

This is a simple motion-diagram thing I made when talking about animation to non-animators.
This is an awesome visual explanation of the technical principles of timing, ease, and settle in animation! We get asked about this a lot, and this here is an excellent tool to showcase how these apply to making realistic and believable movement. Wonder why flash tweeny animation often looks off and weird? it’s because it’s spaced out like the top one. Vary up your frames, yo!
tweed runs ♥
oh my god, is this really a thing? Like a convention for cute tweed wearing people? That’s the whole shtick? Oh my god
i cant tell if they were just lucky enough to get that many attractive people this year or if everyone just automatically looks attractive in tweed suits
the latter, hon. The latter.
I wish to live in this world

The Living Cube by
I moved into a apartment studio without storage room. So i made a minimalistic cube design with a shelf for my vinyl collection, my TV, Clothes and Shoes. On the cube is a guest bed and inside the cube is a lot of storage space. Remo from www.holzlaborbern.ch transferred my sketches very beautifully. My friend and Photographer Rob Lewis made this great photos. Info via Behance
