Random post : Currently watching everything Dame Judi Dench has ever done and being hopelessly in love with her.

Black and white - and gorgeous all over…

Following the sudden death of one of his longest standing lovers, Madame D (Tilda Swinton), Gustave H and the hotel’s lobby boy, Zero, head to her home town to pay their last respects, where Gustave is forced into a confrontation with Madame D’s son, Dimitri (Adrien Brody), who first accuses him of being “a faggot”, then claims he’s bisexual when Gustave admits to sleeping with all his friends.

Madame D has left Gustave a painting - Boy With Apple - which Zero encourages him to liberate, rather than waiting for the will to be settled…

Gustave H likes his women older, rich, blonde, insecure, and needy. And, apparently, prepared to get on their knees to give him pleasure…

I’m so jealous of that actress….

I’m blonde and have $50 in my wallet so I’m halfway there, right? So close

*laughs* Technically, you’re 2/5 of the way there - if you’re also older, needy, or insecure, you’d be half way there…

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."

Much too important NOT to reblog…

When I think of David Warner being cast as the Doctor, I think of a pensive, quiet personality who actually doesn’t talk a whole let. This is probably because I started thinking of David Warner as the Doctor in days when it would have been Sylvester McCoy or Paul McGann he would have to have…

Have you heard the Big Finish Unbound stories in which Warner plays the alternate version of the Third Doctor? If not, I highly recommend them. (Not least because they also feature Nick Courtney as the Alternate Brig - and their joint performances are bloody brilliant!

2013 was a year I will never forget. So much happened that only now it’s all beginning to sink in. I married my wonderful wife, moved into a new apartment, and my first studio. Strangely all of that happened in the month of July no less (just how things happen around here I suppose). My art work provided me opportunities I never imagined possible. I was the 250,000th bigcartel store.  They flew me and my then fiancé to the beautiful Salt Lake City for a fantastic celebration.  I was fortunate to work with Warner Bros. on their Big Bang Theory project, numerous gallery shows, and finally Wes Anderson commissioned me to create a painting for his upcoming movie The Grand Budapest Hotel.

This post visually details a portion of the work created for the piece and give a look into my process for working out compositions, making adjustments, and experimenting with media.  One thing that was clear about this piece was that it had to have a clear and direct message of what it was: “Two Lesbians Masturbating”. Another was that it was to look like an Egon Schiele.  Now Schiele is one of my favorite artists, and ironically I had recently given a Schiele inspired assignment to one of my painting classes. As my Gramma says: “This is right up my alley”. 

 I poured over my Schiele books and examined how he achieved texture and line. As a fan of Schiele this was a great deal of fun. After much experimentation and a filled sketchbook I created seven final drawings and paintings. Four of which are shown here with the others to be shared soon.

Thanks!

As I’ve just watched The Grand Budapest Hotel, I was really interested to know more about the two paintings that feature in the movie - this is fascinating.

Ralph Fiennes as the impeccably mannered M Gustave H (impeccable, that is, if you overlook the occasional swearing!) in The Grand Budapest Hotel

First name on a regular basis, even when I spell it out to people and even by members of my OWN family!

Last name also gives difficulties, despite being only three bloody letters long!!

This is why I am so hot on having other people’s names spelled correctly - be they real or fictional.
