I met this twerking, albino Raven named Pearl today. It is only one of four known albino Ravens in the whole world.
Pearl lives in this woman’s house. The handler has a permit, and the bird is property of the government (like hawks and falcons). She is affiliated with the California Wildlife Center. Every time the handler stopped petting Pearl she started cawing. She really likes affection.

Exactly. Learning to render realistic anatomy is like learning how to play your scales…. Once you’ve got the basics down, then you can embellish and put some soul into it. 

Something I truly believe in when it comes to art.

This.

I’m opening some commissions! I don’t have a lot of time but these portraits are typically pretty quick, so we’ll see how it goes. Plus I need portrait practice anyway. 

$15 for a bust sketch of the character of your choice. Please provide adequate reference. Please refer to this post as for what I am willing/not willing to draw. 

Drop an ask if you’d like one (anon is open) and for paypal information.

I like how the two chief branches of Dean Winters’ career include heart-wrenchingly tragic bruisy New York cops and criminals in prime time drama series and mayhem in Allstate commercials.

Who’s Alex?

Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

Actually, I’ve studied design and advertising, and I can tell you that the reason people would look at this and immediately assume Alex is the boy is because, quite simply, the boy is the focal point of the ad.

English-speaking readers’ line of sight goes from left to right and up to down. This ad leads the viewer from the words MEET ALEX etc straight to the boy and then over and down to the girl. I didn’t even notice there was a set of parenthesis with words in them in the ad until I looked the fourth time. 

This is a fallacious confirmation bias, as anyone looking at it will assume Alex is the focal point (i.e. The Boy) and then if they’re perceptive they’ll notice the words at the bottom. Aha! Those damn gender stereotypes gotcha again! Except no, because the ad literally forces you to read it as “Alex is the boy” by the visual language and lines of sight. 

A better ad would have been structured from top to bottom instead of left to right, and wouldn’t have pushed the girl, the real subject of the ad (who, by the way, has been VISUALLY PUSHED OUT OF HER RIGHTFUL SPACE ON THE AD BY HER BROTHER) off to the corner as far away from her identifiers as possible. 

Here, I’ll make you a better ad.

Bam. Shitty stock photo but you get the point. If anyone sees this and assumes Alex is the boy, they don’t have the the ad layout to use as an excuse for their internalized gender shittery. Likewise, the ad isn’t actively trying to make you read it a certain way and THEN making you feel guilty for interpreting it the way they designed it to be. 

Thank got someone pointed this out… I didn’t have the energy to do it. 

Agreed with urulokid. And I certainly like urulokid’s version of the ad.

I was thinking the same thing when I originally saw this post, but then I ignored that instinct and kept scrolling. So I’m glad someone laid that counter argument out so beautifully.

Así se hacen las multiplicaciones al estilo maya.

I’d never heard of this before and it looked really cool to someone like me who’s super visual and always kind of had a mental block up when it came to math and just dealing with these sums I couldn’t visualize, and I wondered how this applied to numbers that added up to double digit numbers of intersections, so I sat down and whittled it out and realized it’s basically left hand side- hundreds, middle - tens, right hand side - ones (which in retrospect should have been obvious). So like in this example it’s three ones plus seven tens plus two hundreds, but in a bigger example like 48x27 that gives you 8 right, 44 middle, and 56 left it’s like eight hundreds plus 44 tens plus 56

This honestly probably isn’t any faster at all than doing it the old fashioned number stacks way they teach in school, but maybe it resonates with other visual people and helps some eight year old not feel like a stupid loser for being slow at double digit multiplication like I did when I was a kid.
