Randomness to the Extreme

So! My name's Liz, a university student at a Canadian art school who takes the personification of a Forest Unicorn, also known as Forrycorn.
I'm a Canadian who has this obsession with tea, books, movies (Dreamworks and Disney, most animated movies, and a few live actions), cats, snakes, bats, colour, BBC shows, fall, and the quiet.
I am also a Catholic Christian who believes the saying, "Love one another as I love you."
I should mention that I tend to fangirl without warning XD

Read a post recently on the difference between poster art and DVD cover art. In that light, I thought I’d share some of my favorite movie posters from Disney Animated Canon. When the piece you use to represent an artistic achievement is a work of art in its’ own right, you have something truly special on your hands.

[LOUD, WISTFUL SIGH]

I’ll be honest; this post about made me cry.

It’s my goal to cover my studio in theatrical posters.

I forgot how AMAZING some of these posters are. Wow.

I love this duck

I never thought of that this is genius.

huh.

When I was considering homelessness, I already knew I’d be doing this. It makes so much sense. Planet Fitness is only $10 a month so it’s not like you wouldn’t be able to afford it.

a friendly reminder

real life P.S.A..

I’ve had friends that have done this when they needed to escape their unsupportive families.

MIC DROP

(via gojira007)

On New Year’s Day, we are heading out to brunch, and Kavya’s sitting on the stairs, her head in her hands. Crying. I ask her what happened. In most cases, we verbally abuse the pain-inflicting object, followed immediately by a good stomping, and that sorts things out. But this time is different. In-between muted, heaving sobs, she says something that I hadn’t expected for at least a few more years: “I want yellow hair. Like Rapunzel.” She points to the large, manga-eyed, blonde princess with tiny toothpick-wrists, smiling on her t-shirt.

It’s one of those parenting moments where time stands still. I fight the urge to say, “Rapunzel’s hair is stupid. She can go to hell.”

My wife, Sona, sits on the stairs with Kavya and tries to comfort her. Sona’s parents don’t really understand the heaviness of what Kavya is saying, and view it as just a random tantrum.

Instead of berating Rapunzel for her physical appearance, I ask Kavya if she knows who my favourite princess is. She looks up at me. “Who?”

“Princess Kavya.” I say, touching her nose. She starts crying even louder. After a bit, she says, “Why do you like Princess Kavya?”

Challenging “Normal”: Why Non-Token Diversity in Kids’ Storytelling Is Important

Navdeep Singh Dhillon argues that, all too often in books, movies, and TV shows for children, non-white characters are only defined by their “otherness.”

Fucking hell.

I remember the first time I saw a map of Africa to scale. My jaw dropped.

Yes hello friends, we’ve all been lied to our entire lives. Africa is actually freaking ginormous. And this is what the world supposedly truly looks like. 

Also my teacher told us in class that the southern hemisphere actually has more land than the northern hemisphere, but the internet says otherwise. I have no idea what to believe now. Regardless, Africa is huge.

"This is what the world supposedly truly looks like.”

Well, no. If you want to know what the world truly looks like, find a globe. This is why it is important to have globes in your home, library, or classroom. The scale of Africa is immediately apparent.

All maps have the challenge of squashing a 3D surface to a 2D one that you can carry around in your pocket. The much-lambasted Mercator Projection was developed specifically as a navigational map. It remains the standard map projection for nautical and aeronautical purposes because of its ability to represent lines of constant course, known as rhumb lines, as straight segments. This makes it easier to plot long-distance lines of travel, much in the way log-log plots allow you to convert curved lines of data into straight lines for easy comparison of various data sets.   

The likely reason the Mercator became so popular in non-navigational settings is because it’s nice and rectangular, which makes it easy to frame and display. 

The map that deanandhisbrotherandhisangel is championing is the Gall-Peters Projection

The claim that the southern hemisphere has more land area than the northern hemisphere can be immediately disproven by tilting a globe on-end.

In fact, global warming in the Northern Hemisphere is outpacing the warming in the Southern Hemisphere because of its additional land area (and subsequent additional room for people, cars, and factories).

A friend requested I make this, and so here it is, and I offer it to anyone who needs it, with all the authority vested in me by whoever vests these things. Print it out if you need to.

The best art advice ever given to me—ever, ever—was “Don’t be afraid to make bad art.”

You will make a whole lot of crap in your time. Some will be truly awful and some will be merely mediocre. And that is totally normal and totally fine and for the love of little green apples, just keep going, because that’s the only way I know to get to the good stuff eventually.

(I normally feel horribly egotistical mentioning my awards, but I think this counts as using that power for good.)

:’D i feel better now

WE HAD THIS FAILING EXERCISE AT SCHOOL - after you don’t succeed very well with arting, make your most successful pose and with your most successful voice say “I FAILED” \ o /

My brother sent me a picture of a few young girls protesting outside of Party City in Harlem, today. They want Princess Tiana back.

Amazing! “Kids don’t see racial differences.” “Tiana is available online only” You go girls!!!

"Representation doesn’t matter."

"Kids don’t see race."

These girls just proved you all wrong.

precious angels!

It’s sad that it came to this
