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!

Check out Pixelovely! I usually start my drawing day by warming up with the figure drawing practice sessions.
I stumbled upon a website that allows you to blend any colors evenly no matter how opposite on the spectrum they are.

He had one of those smiles with a rare quality of eternal reassurance in it … It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself.

so pick any number

I’ve got the answer
open the envelope
Hurricane Drunk - Florence + The Machine
I hope that you see me
cause I’m staring at you
but when you look over
you look right through
then you lean and kiss her on the head
and I never felt so alive
and so dead

Sinking Friendships - Jónsi
we’re swimming in the blue
the night mist’s full of dew
will I bring light or gloom
my eyes are soaked all the way through
our sinking friendships
we drown them all

living by the sea
no one could set me free

I was in the pretty darkness
praying for an end
Rainbow - Oh Land
nothing’s fast or slow

where lands and oceans meet
peacefully I’m quiet
cause nothing here is mad, bad

this dimension and the next
the living and the dead
they say love exists
then what happened to it?
everybody’s wanting to see
wanting to see it come alive
pour the ashes into the cup
mix with wine
here’s to death, drink up
