My Diorama Instruction
The templates are coming during the week-end on the mega site for downloading. You can download this instruction also on the site, but it only works with a PC or Laptop (no smartphone)
My therapist just told me a joke.
So this girl walks up to another girl and says “Hey, have you heard of the Bechdel Test?”
And the other girl says, “Yeah, my boyfriend was telling me about it the other day!”
Hahaha!! I love it!!
Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.
While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.
The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.) While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself. Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self. And THAT is a huge problem. Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening. She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.
And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it. It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.
And here’s the Sea Dragon I sculpted at last summer’s Festival of Arts, and painted at this year’s Festival. These photos don’t really capture the iridescent metallic sheen of the skin, but you can kind of make it out on her head. I’m extremely pleased with how this piece turned out, especially since my plan to put an LED in the tip of his tendril failed abysmally.
Super sculpey, original and firm, over a wire/wire-mesh armature, painted with cel-vinyl, acrylic, and interference powders.
