Laser Etchings by Jason Thielke Totally blown away by these etchings by Denver artist Jason Thielke. I bet this guy knew how to use a spirograph as a kid. Found on the exceptional Pattern Pulp. Anamorphic Sculptures London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz creates ‘Anamorphic Sculptures’ which only reveal themselves once facing a reflective cylinder. Hurwitz took an engineering degree in Johannesburg where he discovered the fine line between art and science. He has lived in England for many years, working in the online industry though he quietly levitated into the world of art inspired by a need to make ‘something real’.

.:: Sidera Visus ::. | El Rincón de Libros de Ciencia Ficción Cesar Del Valle’s Illustrations Interact with their Physical Surroundings Columbian illustrator Cesar Del Valle‘s drawings are so detailed they could practically be photographs and if the illustrations weren’t realistic enough he then has them interact with the physical world they find themselves in. A figure delicately balances on a pencil protruding from a wall or a girl balances on an actual string affixed to the canvas. I have a feeling his artwork would make an even greater impression seeing it firsthand, but regardless this is truly remarkable stuff. (via behance)

Frightening Monsters Drawn On Post-It Notes I love how these monster drawings channel the spirits of Edward Gorey and Maurice Sendak in perfect measure. Created in artist John Kenn’s spare time (between raising twins and directing childrens shows) each of these images is very tiny: it was drawn using only office supplies on Post-It notes. Check out Kenn’s large collection of top-notch work at johnkenn.blogspot.com. Known in some circles as the most amazing man in the universe, he once saved an entire family of muskrats from a sinking, fire engulfed steamboat while recovering from two broken arms relating to a botched no-chute wingsuit landing in North Korea.

«La investigación moderna sobre Pablo de Tarso. Nuevas perspectivas » de Antonio Piñero La adecuada comprensión de las cartas de Pablo de Tarso es absolutamente fundamental para el cristiano, pues prácticamente toda su religión se basa, desde el siglo IV sobre todo, en las líneas marcadas por el Apóstol al repensar y reconfigurar la figura del Jesús de la historia, amalgamándola con la del Cristo celestial. Puede defenderse sin temor a equivocarse que las aportaciones de los evangelistas, tan trascendentales para el cristianismo, se basan también en el desarrollo de la ruta marcada por el maestro Pablo. La exégesis tradicional del Apóstol durante centurias ha sido cuestionada a partir de mediados del siglo XVIII, pero de una manera más radical aún desde 1970. A pesar de tales dificultades, la interpretación paulina ha discurrido por senderos casi unívocos, sin grandes discrepancias. Tal «evangelio» había sido recibido por Pablo gracias a una revelación directa de Dios. Sus cartas, esta suerte de presunto vademécum del antijudaísmo cristiano, habían sido mal interpretadas

This is Why I'll Never be an Adult I have repeatedly discovered that it is important for me not to surpass my capacity for responsibility. Over the years, this capacity has grown, but the results of exceeding it have not changed. Normally, my capacity is exceeded gradually, through the accumulation of simple, daily tasks. But a few times a year, I spontaneously decide that I'm ready to be a real adult. The first day or two of my plans usually goes okay. For a little while, I actually feel grown-up and responsible. At some point, I start feeling self-congratulatory. This is a mistake. I begin to feel like I've accomplished my goals. What usually ends up happening is that I completely wear myself out. The longer I procrastinate on returning phone calls and emails, the more guilty I feel about it. Then the guilt from my ignored responsibilities grows so large that merely carrying it around with me feels like a huge responsibility. It always ends the same way. And then I rebel.

AULA COPTICA BARCINONENSIS. Lengua y cultura coptas. Textos coptos. Cristiandad oriental. Retro Future: Space Art Update "QUANTUM SHOT" #715Link - article by Avi Abrams "Gentlemen! - Forward, Into the Past!" It's been some time since we featured glorious space futuristic illustrations from the past (read our previous articles: Retro Future: To The Stars! Part 3, Part 2 and Part 1). So today we will once again travel into the world of obscure East-Block and hard-to-find Western pulp 1950s illustrations to see "What Future Used To Be"... in regards to space exploration (long live our memory of the Space Shuttle, alas) and the great starry yonder where no one has gone before. Flash Gordon's spaceship is still the most fascinating / colorful - (image via) Rarely seen illustrations from 1950s Germany: (art by Kurt Roschl, Germany) American Space Pulp Illustration We featured some pulp science fiction artwork before, but the poetry and glamour of Golden Age space illustrations will never fade with us - and so requires constant re-visiting: (Illustration by Ed Emshwiller to "Have Space-Suit, Will Travel" by Robert A.

The first two phases of the Greek Manuscripts Digitisation Project were generously funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the third phase was funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, the A.

The Royal Manuscripts and Botany in British India projects have been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council as a part of its Digital Transformations in Arts and Humanities Theme and contributes to a package of measures aimed at developing innovative approaches to archiving, accessing and using data for research in the arts and humanities supported as a part of the additional investment to enhance the national e.infrastructure for research announced by the Government in October 2011.
