Lire la suite Demande d'information Hyperbole and a Half The Official Webpage of Mike Wieringo! I’ve given quite a bit of thought to the broad strokes of my idea of a displaced Earthman finding himself on the golden ringed planet far from his home. Unfortunately for me, the broad strokes of a story idea is all I usually end up with. It’s the smaller moments– the character moments and construction– that I find myself frozen up about. I’m sure if I actually sat down and started to write some of this stuff out, it would begin to flow from me pretty easily. I recall…. what must be about 5 years ago now…. that Todd and I were discussing possible ideas for another TELLOS story arc. I remember Todd talking about the possibility of introducing a new character– a rebellious young girl who could end up a playing a pivotal role in a new story. All that is to say that one day, when I have the time, I’ll sit down and begin to flesh out the story for the man from Earth who finds himself on far away Saturn, embroiled in a struggle for the throne of the greatest kingdom on that distant world.
RYAN LANG PORTFOLIO Grigory Lozinsky 20-Year-Old Hunter S. Thompson’s Superb Advice on How to Find Your Purpose and Live a Meaningful Life As a hopeless lover of both letters and famous advice, I was delighted to discover a letter 20-year-old Hunter S. Thompson — gonzo journalism godfather, pundit of media politics, dark philosopher — penned to his friend Hume Logan in 1958. Found in Letters of Note: Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience (public library | IndieBound) — the aptly titled, superb collection based on Shaun Usher’s indispensable website of the same name — the letter is an exquisite addition to luminaries’ reflections on the meaning of life, speaking to what it really means to find your purpose. Cautious that “all advice can only be a product of the man who gives it” — a caveat other literary legends have stressed with varying degrees of irreverence — Thompson begins with a necessary disclaimer about the very notion of advice-giving: To give advice to a man who asks what to do with his life implies something very close to egomania. Every man is the sum total of his reactions to experience.
Lackadaisy Expressions Boy, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I started this. I've had requests for some sort of expressions tutorial dating back a while now, so I figured, "Sure! I can explain expression drawing...and it'll be way better than all those tutorials out there that are nothing but charts of generic expressions. Um. Anyway, I found all I could really do was try to explain ways to teach yourself...and then add some pictures. КАК НАУЧИТЬСЯ РИСОВАТЬ.

Oscar Wilde on Art by Maria Popova “The temperament to which Art appeals … is the temperament of receptivity.” Oscar Wilde may have been the twentieth century’s first and most tragic pop celebrity, and a masterful writer of love letters, but he was also a poignant observer of culture and custodian of the creative spirit. His 1891 essay The Soul of Man Under Socialism (public library; free download), written mere months after The Picture of Dorian Gray was published, explores the social structures of art with equal parts libertarianism, anarchism, and genuine concern — but more than a political treatise, at the heart of it is a profound meditation on what it means to create, to live, and to be human. He begins with a beautiful addition to history’s finest definitions of art: The temperament to which Art appeals … is the temperament of receptivity. He goes on to explore how the appreciation of art differs across creative disciplines: With the novel it is the same thing. There are three kinds of despots.
