"La conquista della terra / The Conquest of the Earth" Duilio Cambellotti 1934
So it turns out my Russian professor for Figure Drawing was a paratrooper in the Red Army during the Cold War… And was deployed to the same patch of square miles in Afghanistan I was.
I love art school.
Man on second thought I shouldn’t even bother responding to complete strangers going on the morality crusade against Club Fallout after the “Doomsday Scandal”. None of the attackers are giving the whole story (or are outright lying. I’m talking about you Matt Elgin you gossipy cunt) and this whole thing has gone far beyond merely disagreeing with their choice in industrial shock-art, to an 80s fundamentalist church mom type of agenda where they’ll ignore anyone who was actually there saying “No, this is actually how it was”.
Doomsday 2014 was groovy as hell. Apparently I danced for like 4 hours straight. Also noticed raw meat caked between the treads of my boots the morning after.
Daily reminder that prohibitionism is for squares. If you think it’s good to have police kidnap and put someone in a state-funded steel cage where they’ll be brutalized and sexually assaulted for years simply because they owned a certain quantity of plants, mushrooms or chemicals with far less harm potential than your average Walgreens-bought tobacco/alcohol substances, you’re messed up.
I way underpriced myself for this recent run of commissioned illustrations, but didn’t realize it til I saw how fast I burn through grocery money now that I’m trying to get swole. Shit’s changed since I last did freelance art fulltime in 2008.
Guh, can’t wait to finish this batch and price myself properly so I can afford protein powder and Bandcamp downloads once or twice a month.
In good news I took a break from everything last night, reclined on the couch and listened to psytrance and Wagner preludes while watching incense burn.
White privilege is posting a manifesto on Youtube and carrying out a mass shooting that causes more deaths than the Boston Marathon bombing and the media doesn’t label you a terrorist.
Do you crybabies even read the news before you decide to rage about privilege? Elliot Rodger was half-White/half-Asian, and complained in his videos about white women not sleeping with his stupid creepy ass, and boasted about planning to kill them.
