“I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution…

…We became too self aware, nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law…We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, a secretion of sensory, experience, and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody… I think the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming, stop reproducing, walk hand and hand into extinction.”

Things I love Thursday.

I decided for this post to browse through my past YouTube favorite videos (you can find all of them here). My taste expands from music videos, to videos that have just my name or remind me of myself and my likes, and some really interesting stuff. I will make another post for the music videos. For this post, I divided the videos in two categories, the first one has 5 really worth-to-watch videos, and the second one has videos that only me probably like for personal reasons. :p

a) Worth-to-watch videos

1. El empleo  (short animation film)

2. Harvie Krumpet (short film from the creator of Mary and Max a must-see movie)

3. Jojo in the Stars (short film, probably I will suggest this video till the day I die)

4. Chunky Move’s Mortal Engine (dancing, art, visual, amazing!)

5. The Art of Logo Design (a nice brief preview around the logo design)

b) “me” videos

1. Pegasus  (this is exactly how I snore :p)

2. Squirrel intrigued by a camera monitoring its home

3. Windows 98 Blue screen of death

4. Coyote catches Road Runner

5. Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates, Baby bunny eats a tiny flower, washes its face ( <3 )


Things I love Thursday.

I’ve been meaning to make a post about all the great illustrators, graphic designers and artists in general that inspire me for so long now, and finally the day has come. (Maybe I should prepare myself for a similar post about music I like and songs.. xm). Of course here I mention a few artist not all of them, just let’s say when I need ideas to steal (sorry, I mean inspiration), their work is the first thing I look at. :}

1. Teagan White (of course)

I think I love her not only because she is extremely talented (obviously) but also every-time I asked her for help and instructions she was more than explanatory  and eager to help. Plus she was the reason I learned how to color my line-work with this great tutorial.

2. Sara Blake

I love how she combines traditional and new media. And she is a Libra too. :}

3. Audrey Kawasaki

I think she is really popular on the internet  cos every now and then I stumble upon a painting of hers in tumlbr and pinterest, which is fine because her work is totally eye-candy ans sexy and erotic and sensual. Btw she made a great Margaery for a game of thrones exhibition.

4. Katie Scott

After Teagan’s work I think her illustrations are my no2 on my list of illustrations I try to copy. :p

5. Rebecca Green

Because her illustrations make me feel so warm inside and cozy and fluffy.
