“No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your Knowledge …if he is indeed Wise he does not bid you to enter the house of his Wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own Mind.” – Kahlil Gibran

Phan Thu Trang

October 1, 2013 Leave a comment

“Talented artist Phan Thu Trang was born in Hanoi in 1981 and has been winning awards as a child artist from the age of five. A graduate from the Theatre and Cinema University, Hanoi, Trang’s stylized and elegant depictions of landscapes and sceneries have appealed to art collectors around the world.

The use of unusual pastel colours and flat broad controlled strokes and her constant experimentation with compositions and different unique moods created on the canvas, lends a special freshness and pride to her paintings.

Her work brings out the inner joy and beauty in us and invariably puts a smile on the viewer’s face. ”

#Zombie #Newbreeds and the #FVZA

September 30, 2013 Leave a comment

(SNIP) 25-Sep-13  #MailOnline:  The first cases of a terrifying new drug called ‘Krokodil’ that eats flesh from the inside out, is flammable and leaves addicts with reptilian-like skin have been reported this week in Arizona – and the state fears the beginning of an epidemic. Popular in Russia, Krokodil is homemade, is three-times cheaper than heroin and created by mixing codeine with gasoline or oil, filtering it and then injecting the rancid concoction into the users body. Banner’s Poison Control Center most likely encountered the drug when two addicts arrived in emergency rooms with their flesh hanging off their body, exposing bone or with skin resembling that of a crocodile, hence its name.

Dr. Pecos, Your thoughts?
“The Federal Vampire & Zombie Agency (FVZA)

…also known as “the Vanguard,” was responsible for controlling the nation’s vampire and zombie populations while overseeing scientific research into the undead.

#FVZA is a tribute to the men and women who served in the FVZA, especially the over 4000 Agents who lost their lives fighting to keep our country safe. In addition to paying tribute to the #FVZA hopes to call attention to dangerous research being done at the Santa Rosa Institute: research that runs the risk of bringing back a scourge of vampires worse than any before.”  -Dr. Hugo Pecos

Ask Dr. Pecos, Episode 2, “Do zombies ever seek revenge on the living?”

Writing in Maya Glyphs

Learn how to write in a new… err, ancient language.


Writing in Maya Glyphs – .pdf link here:
http://www.famsi.org/research/pitts/MayaGlyphsBook1Sect1.pdf

For something more in-depth, I recommend “Reading Maya Art: A Hieroglyphic Guide to Ancient Maya Painting and Sculpture”

Lavishly illustrated, fully cross-referenced and indexed: an invaluable book for anyone wishing to see and understand Maya art through the eyes of ancient scribes and artists.

The art of the ancient Maya may be considered their most singular cultural achievement. Yet despite a surge of popular interest in these remarkable people, few are fully aware of the richness of their artistic legacy, unique in all of pre-Columbian America.

Presented here for the first time is a compendium of one hundred hieroglyphs that are also the building blocks of ancient Maya painting and sculpture. Organized thematically, the symbols touch on many facets of the Maya world, from the natural environment—animals, plants, the heavens—to the mental landscape of gods, myths, and rituals. Using hundreds of line drawings and photographs, Andrea Stone and Marc Zender show how to identify these signs, understand their meaning, and appreciate the novel ways they appear in art. In addition to providing a basic introduction, the authors also offer many new and exciting interpretations. 535 black-and-white illustrations.”

Blz Reading MayaArt 2

Maya art is a rare combination of linear elegance and naturalism blended with dazzling symbolic complexity. Decorated objects, ranging from painted vases and carved jade and shell ornaments to towering stone monuments and building facades, bear the traces of a symbol system that, while fascinating, can make an understanding of these images elusive to the uninitiated.
