Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.

Eu tentava encontrar padrões nos números de série para passar o tempo.

We watched DAYTIME TV. Do you realize how soul-crushing it was? I'd rather eat an iPad than go back to watching daytime TV.

Zelda Fitzgerald’s Little-Known Art

by Maria Popova

From Alice in Wonderland to Times Square, a delicate dance of the imagination.

When Zelda Sayre married legendary Jazz Age novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald to become Zelda Fitzgerald, she was anointed “the first American flapper” and embarked on one of the most turbulent relationships in literary history. Though best-remembered as a writer and dancer, Zelda, unbeknownst to many, not only considered herself an artist but was also an exceptionally gifted one. Her paintings place her among history’s famous writers with little-known talents in the visual arts, including Tolkien’s drawings, Sylvia Plath’s sketches, William Faulkner’s Jazz Age illustrations, and Flannery O’Connor’s cartoons.

Zelda: An Illustrated Life: The Private World of Zelda Fitzgerald (public library) collects 140 illustrations and 80 of her paintings from the late 1930s and 1940s, lovingly compiled by her granddaughter, the Vermont-based writer, filmmaker and artist Eleanor Anne Lanahan. From her cityscapes of New York City and Paris to her psychedelic Biblical allegories to her delicate paper dolls she made for her daughter Scottie, the art paints an intricate picture of her psychoemotional world and reflects her passion for fairy tales, her irreverent dance with the absurd, and her enormous sensitivity to beauty — a visual reflection of the blend of intense intelligence and unapologetic mischievousness that made Zelda so alluring.

But as a lover of Alice in Wonderland art, I was especially thrilled to see Zelda’s paintings for the Carroll classic:

Who Stole the Tarts

A Mad Tea Party

Zelda: An Illustrated Life is an absolute delight from cover to cover. Complement it with the art of Norah Borges.

Entenda o ataque antissemita de um terrorista americano de 73 anos na véspera do Pessach

by Gustavo Chacra

Existe uma tendência equivocada de achar que todo o antissemitismo esteja associado a sentimentos anti-Israel e a extremistas islâmicos fanáticos, embora estes realmente existam. Mas o episódio de ontem em Kansas City, assim como centenas de outros ao redor do mundo todos os anos, inclusive no Brasil, se deveu pura e simplesmente ao ódio aos judeus.

O atirador, depois de preso, teria gritado “Heil Hitler”. E não, ele não era muçulmano, como muitos islamofóbicos gostariam que fosse apenas para terem mais uma oportunidade de atacar os muçulmanos. O terrorista (sim, usarei esta expressão) era um americano branco, supremacista, racista, cristão, membro de Ku Klux Klan e de 73 anos chamado Frazier Glenn Cross.

Existem pessoas que se tornam antissemitas por serem anti-Israel. Estas são mais comuns no mundo árabe. Existem pessoas que são anti-Israel por serem antissemitas. Estas são mais comuns na Europa. E existem pessoas que são antissemitas independentemente da posição que possuam em relação a Israel, pois também tendem a odiar os palestinos. Estes são os neonazistas europeus, americanos e mesmo no Brasil. Isto é, são antissemitas e islamofóbicos (e anti-árabes, pois em alguns casos não toleram cristãos do Oriente Médio) ao mesmo tempo.

Eu mesmo já ouvi de pessoas conhecidas que “judeus” e “libaneses” são os responsáveis por uma série de problemas do Brasil, como corrupção. Claro, estas pessoas, se ficarem doentes e tiverem condições, certamente tentarão se internar no Einstein ou no Sírio-Libanês. E não verão o menor problema em serem atendidos por um médico com sobrenome árabe ou judaico.

Enfim, triste escrever um post de antissemitismo no Pessach. Mas Boa Páscoa à comunidade judaica em São Paulo, Rio, Nova York, Israel, Irã e outras partes do mundo.

Absentee Ballots

by Greg Ross

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Declaration_independence.jpg

Can one generation bind another, and all others, in succession forever? I think not. The Creator has made the earth for the living, not the dead. Rights and powers can only belong to persons, not to things, not to mere matter, unendowed with will. The dead are not even things. The particles of matter which composed their bodies, make part now of the bodies of other animals, vegetables, or minerals, of a thousand forms. To what then are attached the rights and powers they held while in the form of men? A generation may bind itself as long as its majority continues in life; when that has disappeared, another majority is in place, holds all the rights and powers their predecessors once held, and may change their laws and institutions to suit themselves. Nothing then is unchangeable but the inherent and unalienable rights of man.

– Thomas Jefferson, letter to Maj. John Cartwright, June 5, 1824

Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes — our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking around.

– G.K. Chesterton

8bitrevolver:

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.
