A couple months ago I shared some GIFs of invisible things, and I finally got around to putting them together in this video:
When light travels through areas of different air density, it bends. You’ve probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You’re seeing light that has been distorted as it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.
Schlieren Flow Visualization can be used to visually capture these changes in density: the rising heat from a candle, the turbulence around an airplane wing, the plume of a sneeze … even sound. Special thanks to Mike Hargather, a professor of mechanical engineering at New Mexico Tech, who kindly provided a lot of these videos.
I’m going to die, Aningaaq. I know, we’re all gonna die— we both know that— but I’m gonna die today. Funny that, you know, to know. But the thing is, is that I’m still scared. I’m really scared. Nobody will mourn for me. No one will pray for my soul. Will you mourn for me? Will you say a prayer for me? Or is it too late?
Yay, good news!
The Tarotcard I did for the Light Grey Art Lab is finally available as a print in their shop! Click here.
You can choose between the Tarot-look like the above or the normal illustration without type and the number.
This will be available for a limited time only: from Oct 19- Nov 30. I won’t sell it afterwards so this is the only chance to get a print of it
Please check out all the other prints as well, they are amazing!:)
The opening reception for the show is on Oct 26th in Minneapolis, due to living on another continent I unfortuantely can’t be there, but a lot of other artists will.
When I saw Anna’s Seahorse yesterday I thought “damn I’m thinking to realistic sometimes” because she posted an awesome cartoony seahorse and mine was kind of boring. That’s why I wanted to try and draw some cartoony or abstract animals. For last evening I chose the fox. I didn’t go far enough into abstraction, because I was too unsure again about it, but some of them I like.
I also used a different brush for this kind of sketching, which I never use for my illustrations because I feel like it’s too smudgy.
It turns out that Clooney, 52, obtained stationery in Damon’s name and sent a letter to Fey as his costar calling them out for the jokes they also made about Damon during the hosting gig. The women, who have long-running rapport with Damon, infamously dubbed him a “garbage” man among the A-listers in attendance. (Incidentally, Clooney did not attend this year’s award show.)
"I send her a letter going, ‘Dear Tina, Listen…" Clooney said, laughing. "It’s ‘from’ Matt and it says, ‘Look, it sounds hypocritical because I laughed about jokes about George and Leo, but that’s sort of what people think about them…. But when you call me a garbage man it just seems like low-hanging fruit. It seems like an easy joke. I don’t want an apology or anything else. I just want you to know that my kid now calls me ‘the garbage man.’"
Following the letter, Damon received an enormous delivery of two fruit baskets last week, with each one bearing a letter signed from Fey and Poehler.
Damon, 43, ever the innocent bystander, recalled the first letter — marked “1” — as a long apology letter, saying the women said, “I thought you of all people could take a joke and listen we’re both really sorry.”
However, the “30 Rock” and “Parks & Recreation” stars, who will be hosting the Golden Globes again next year, were already a step ahead of the guys.
According to Damon, the second letter said, “If by chance you didn’t send us that letter and it was from George Clooney, please let him know that you’ve got to get up a little earlier in the day to fool a couple of girls like this. We’re grown-ass comedians.”
With that, they told Clooney to step up his game, and he happily obliged.
