Best coin ever spent - gets me EVERY TIME.

Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.  

Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.  

Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.

I feel like everyone should see this.

NSFW - THIS IS PERFECT

The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.

The artwork is too great not to reblog. 

Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.

That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.

One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Hans Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.

Finished my painting! Inspired by Tom Lehrer’s music- especially the song, "We Will All Go Together When We Go" and lyrics:

For if the bomb that drops on you Gets your friends and neighbors too, There’ll be nobody left behind to grieve.
…
Oh we will all burn together when we burn. There’ll be no need to stand and wait your turn. When it’s time for the fallout And saint peter calls us all out, We’ll just drop our agendas and adjourn.

“Any ideas for the new park sculpture?”
“How about a giant, metallic octopus attacking a rook?”
“Perfect.”
