if I offered you $20, would you take it?
How about if I crumpled it up?
Stepped on it?
you would probably take it even though it was crumpled and stepped on it. Do you know why?
Because it is still $20, and its worth has not changed.
The same goes for you; if you have a bad day, or if something bad happens to you, you are not worthless.
if someone crumples you up or steps on you, your worth does not change. You are still just as valuable as you were before.

Here’s some interesting texures you can make using watercolour paints. from top to bottom:
Alcohol - Drip some alcohol on the painted area and the paint will separate from the area. the dryer the paint is, I’ve found, the darker and crisper the edges of the seperated area of…
Freak had a theory that the use of “Over The Rainbow” implies that the Zones are a strange version of Oz (or an Oz-like world) and that means the guardians are an intentional parallel to Dorothy and her companions.
And I really, really, really liked the idea.
I’ll probably make these available as prints and I’ll add a link here when they’re in my shop.

Hey tumblr, have you ever thought to yourself, “dang it’d sure be cool to set a project in something other than the current times,” but when you go to look up references on google, all you get is a horrible historical pastiche of days gone by?
Well boy howdy, do I have a reference for you!
The Wishbook Web has scans of entire consumer catalogs from past decades, ranging from the early 30s to the late 80s. Each catalog has pages upon pages of reference of clothing, accessories, and shoes for all ages, as well as toys, gadgets, and all sorts of junk that you might buy for yourself or your loved ones. While the website exclusively has Christmas catalogs, the photos and illustrations show products that you could use year-round.
SO MANY REFS OMG…
I’d like to add on top of this that all of the issues of Life Magazine (1936-1972) are available via Google Books and they are just a wealth of photography, advertisement, culture, and history. There are just some really neat glimpses into history here, especially powerful when you browse through and you can see the issues leading up to wars, and then finally the first issue after a war begins—and you know what all is going to happen (I recommend the Dec. 22, 1941 issue, it’s such a strange mix of shocking reaction to news, propaganda, hope and advertisements that act like nothing’s going on).
It’s not like looking at a history book and just reading a timeline, it’s the reactions of real people at that time, in print. It’s so neat!
