Could you recommend any artists (aside from Shing/sawdustbear) who do similar things to you? I.e, sculptures of fantastic imaginary creatures?
Oh, sure! Okay, so you mentioned Shing, but in case anyone else is new to this blog and hasn’t seen me link to my frequent art partner, here she is. I really enjoy Lyla Warren's work… And I've been a fan of Miss Monster for years. Let’s see… Worms & Bones make neat stuff, so does Magweno… It’s a very different kind of creature sculpting, but there’s also Eva Funderburgh. Crap, who am I forgetting? Like a million people, probably.
“The hardest period in life is one’s twenties. It’s a shame because you’re your most gorgeous, and you’re physically in peak condition. But it’s actually when you’re most insecure and full of self-doubt. When you don’t know what’s going to happen, it’s frightening.”—Helen Mirren, quoted in Esquire’s “What I’ve Learned” (via wordsthat-speak)
“If you find yourself thinking “Wait. Can’t say that. He’ll think I’m weird and fucked up.” Ditch them and find someone who responds with something twice as weird and three times as fucked up.”—Jeremiah Van Guilder (via lullabysounds)
“Every girl I’ve ever known with curly hair wants straight hair. Every girl I’ve ever know with straight hair spends time curling it. Here’s an idea: How about you spend the time you would have used to curl it or straighten your hair fucking someone who likes you the way you are.”—Pete Holmes, The Pete Holmes Show (via kinkycoilycool)
“Being a woman is kind of like being a cyclist in a city where all the cars represent men. You’re supposed to be able to share the road equally with cars, but that’s not how it works. The roads are built for cars and you spend a great deal of physical and mental energy being defensive and trying not to get hurt. Some of the cars WANT you to get hurt. They think you don’t have any place on the road at all. And if you do get hurt by a car, everyone makes excuses that it’s your fault.”—A friend of a friend (via onesmallflowerofeternity)
There are these little tiny fuzzy bugs that are flying around my pear tree and I kind of want to call them cute but I feel like the second I do someone’s gonna tell me they’re like the spawns of satan and they sting people and kill my trees
Nevermind they’re called “Woolly Aphids” and they’re literal fairies
I feel bad for calling them evil now they’re so frickin cute
