Three years ago, the artist Pejac lived in a house with many windows located in Valencia, Spain. He used the crystal-clear view of apartment buildings and a security camera to experiment with paper and acrylic works on glass, creating simple silhouetted pieces that play with scale and the surrounding urban landscape.

The Photographic and Sculptural Blend of Osang Gwon
The artwork of Korean artist Gwon Osang is a unique blend of photography and sculpture. He begins by extensively photographing his subjects, then attaching the photographs to plaster sculptures and molds. The result is a strange mix of two and thee dimensions. Also, while the sculptures may point to classical bronze and marble statues, the photos and poses are much more reminiscent of fashion photography. Thus, the sculptures seem simultaneously heavy and light in physical weight as well as seriousness. They’re especially fitting for a time marked by the abundance of images and hyper-documentation.

Since the TFIOS movie became available On Demand and for digital download and people can now pause and zoom in and stuff, many people have asked who wrote the pages of An Imperial Affliction that appear in the movie.
I did. Executive producer Isaac Klausner asked me to write four pages (the two you see here and the final two pages of the book) for the movie edition of An Imperial Affliction, so I did. In this passage, Anna is recalling intense pain breaking through her high doses of narcotic pain medication.
The book that Hazel reads in the movie is just the four pages I wrote printed over and over again hundreds of times. I have a copy of it in my house; it’s my only souvenir from the movie set.

six word story about remus lupin:
he went to the funeral alone

One of my favourite things about Harry Potter is that Harry is such an unreliable narrator, not because he’s lying, but because he was so oblivious, just about anything could be going on under his nose and he wouldn’t even notice. It’s great because it supports basically every headcanon. Like, no, Harry would not have noticed if Sirius and Remus were dating, I know he’s The Chosen One but he’s about as perspective as a pile of bricks.
Kei Meguro’s illustrations are just as beautiful as the women portrayed. The minimalist approach is also appealing. See more of the pretty work below:

sometimes I get really stressed out because my body doesn’t match society’s expectations of beauty and sex appeal
and one night I was complaining about it to my sister and she said
"It’s not very punk rock to meet society’s expectations"
I think she changed my life
Anonymous said: hi its the anon. sorry if your offended i was just saying that you shouldn't speak french if you're not french. owo
not offended, just extremely bewildered.
1) languages are made for communication… it is defeating the purpose of language if you make it something that only certain people can speak.
2) even by your reasoning, I’m Canadian?? I have to learn some extent of French by law??? It’s kind of a big deal in Canadian history????
