Art has always been a passion for me since my earliest years. When ever there was paper and pencil at hand, I was drawing, which resulted in me being sent our of the classroom several times. After learning the very basics that were offered in school, I went on to teach myself what I needed.
At present my favourite medium of choice is oils. "Oils! The Rolls Royce of painting"
In the beginning my paint technique was rather limiting. So when it cam

Joseph LarkinJoseph Larkin
Joseph Larkin hails from the dank pits of Syracuse, NY. He graduated from Onondoga Community College in 1993 and has worked as a fine artist ever since, Focusing largely on the human form and those of other animals. The images he creates are driven by fear, love and an deep appreciation for the darker corners of the organic psyche. He apints and draws in pretty much all two dimensional media which he drives into the third dimension with sculpture and fiber arts. Larkin lives, works and wanders the blurred edge of madness in Seattle, WA.
Paula RosaPAULA ROSA was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1970.
She graduated from Jean Piaget Institute, in 1998, and from Lusofona University, in 2007, both in Art and Design.
From her initial fascination for visual arts, and after exploring the wide variety of traditional media, Paula Rosa became aware of the potentialities of the digital tools in 2003. Since then, and being conscious of the importance of digital technologies and how they have been revolutionizing the arts, she began to experiment several techniques in the digital canvas.
Her work tells stories in which the action develops in three times: the past, the present and the future. From the past is recognizable the ancestral terror of death and for the unknown; the present reflects upon a decadent society divided between the material pleasure and the fear for the consequences of a self-induced apocalypse; the future, as any story meant to be continued, it's an almost certain and prominent question mark.
Ben TolmanBen Tolman
Ben Tolman lives and grew up in Washington, DC. He graduated from the Corcoran College of Art in 2005 (although largely considers himself self-taught). He works largely in minutely detailed ink drawings and more recently oil painting. He is primary interested in the strangeness of existence and the way in which people attempt to understand it. Among the avenues he uses to explore the nature (and consequences) of reality and conciseness are hallucinogenic drug which are a catalyst to the boundary regions of the mind. Among his current projects is the Antipodes Project which he started in 2006, It is a collaborative art project involving dozens of artists around the world. He has exhibited work both locally and internationally.
REINHARD SCHMID was born in Weiden, Germany, in 1960, and has always been fascinated by artists like Hieronymus Bosch and Max Ernst. Schmid also has an interest in machines and engineering, and for several years he even worked as a navigator on a submarine before he started painting on glass. His father Rudolf Schmid, also an artist, taught him the classical glass painting techniques as well as the new ones he had invented himself. Over the last 20 years Reinhard Schmid refined the use of pencil and watercolour on the reverse side of glass, and by combining it with the techniques of the old masters he developed his own distinct style.
In the early 1990s Schmid worked with Jaro Art Galleries on Madison Avenue, New York, which also exhibited his work at the New York Art Expo. Since 1993 he is curator of the so-called Gewölbe der Geheimnisse (Vaults of Secrets) in his home town Viechtach, Germany, where he works on a large scale version of tarot cards

Wade Furlong - Bio:
Through out years I have developed the insight to portray work that illuminates the beauty in the grotesque with a sense of comical demeanor. At times I inhibit bold and iconic compositions with my distorted figures, whether be complex or even more simplistic. My goal is always to focus on the figure at hand, the sense of extreme character that they have within themselves. To bring forth the attention of anatomy or fluidity in form with these characters, I take great care into the craft of sculpting dynamics with a three dimensional feel with two dimensional media. There is a intrigue of solitude within my creations I have been told. With the feedback and study from the human condition that I have delved into for years in travels, I continue to be fascinated by what mankind brings forth not only to one another, but to the abstract reality that they create for themselves.

The Manifesto of PeriscopicalMANIFESTO OF PERISCOPICAL ART
Written by Gromyko Padilla Semper, this collection of thought and research concerns the Union of Artists working together though different modes and methods, and how they present situation in art, the spiritual in art and post post-modern art:
The first thing that came to my mind, when it come to fleshing this out, is realizing that a revolution is essentially the individuals who are part of it. That is, the whole shall always be composed of individuals who play a major part in defining the essence of the whole. Each individual revolutionises aspects of reality in their own way, but they all are tied by a common goal. Though they may stand on their own independent fields of specialization, one cannot deny the common thread that binds them all: Art.
Art is the common thread, and the link between each individual thread, diverse in ways and virtues, always standing in unison. They are comparable to the atomic structure,
Everyone was a bully somehowWe've probably all bullied someone at some point, no matter how much we deny it. Whether directly through angry, thoughtless comments, or indirectly by standing aside and saying nothing, we've all been a part of this horrible practice. We didn't mean for it to hurt, but it did.
Sure, everyone hates that annoying kid who constantly yells "I'm single!" whenever someone's talking about relationship problems, but that doesn't mean you have to pick on him.
Sure, everyone judges that girl for her lengthy dating history and skimpy clothing, but that doesn't mean you should call her a slut.
Sure, that somehow-popular guy bullies everyone, but that doesn't mean you have to be mean to him in return.
Sure, that girl isn't as athletic as the rest of the team, but that doesn't mean you should refuse to acknowledge her very existence for years on end.
So what do you do?
Be that one person who apologizes for bullying the poor kid. Tell people that enough is enough. Listen to him (although maybe you'r

Camp McCall Memories: Battle of the Bear
I was asked once again to share a story of Camp McCall and my adventures there as a staffer with you guys. Oh trust me…I have a lot to share! But the tricky part is just thinking of which ones to talk about that would be entertaining and that I could easily explain. But the more I think about it…there is one story in particular that always jumps out at me. As I look back on it now, it was very funny…but at the time, there was nothing funny about this. In fact, I was quite scared. I can sum up what happened in just one sentence…one solitary grouping of words:
“Did you know I fought a bear?”
Now before you all start calling me a liar and saying it’s a lot of bull that I fought a bear, I want to make two things clear. First is that black bears are very common in the mountains of South Carolina, and we actually have rules at camp that keep kids from taking snacks into their cabins because it attracts them. Second of all, black bears are not
18. The True Journal of a Fake 'Communist'11/21/71
Got up this morning just as the tops of those mountains across the valley caught some pink light, and I ran up to the outhouse and watched the light grow through the frost on the windows there. It's a Sunday and coming up pretty!
I have some cramps and a sort of desire to smoke a joint even before breakfast, otherwise I feel okay. I remember having another bad night of sleep last night. I thought I was dreaming of laughing but Vicki says I was groaning. Oh well.
Suzy said yesterday that she felt a physical attraction to me for a pretty long time, which blew my mind. She says Tom knows about it, even, and that he would dig the whole event and would like see her get closer to me or whatever. I didn't know what to say except "far out." We both let it go for now.
Laura just made one of those paper fortune-teller things where you pick a color and numbers and she fools with it and comes up with a reply. She just had Leelanee do
17. The True Journal of a Fake 'Communist'11/11/71
Had a pleasant day again, another plexiglass day with many good jokes and Larry working on it too and three new windows are in.
Each night I doubt my continuing togetherness behind being not lonely and going towards being really satisfied as a single person here. Maybe I'll call a singles meeting tomorrow.
Daniel used to say it has to do with sex. I just gain more weight and don't even want to take a bath in daylight anymore!
Today was a hectic day on plexiglass, with a lot of visitors coming and slowing down the whole process.
We finished the arc of windows, which was very nice! There were a multitude of jokes as the end drew nearer, particularly from Mike, and as corny as can be.
At first when the project started I didn't want to work with Mike because his temper looked so damned unpredictable and explosive, but I gradually found myself working with him cutting
The History Of SloveniaThe history of Slovenia
Slovenia was originally settled by Illyrian and Celtic peoples. It became part of the Roman Empire in the first century B.C.
The Slovenes were a south Slavic group that settled in the region in the 6th century A.D. During the 7th century, the Slavs established the state of Samu, which owed its allegiance to the Avars, who dominated the Hungarian plain until Charlemagne defeated them in the late 8th century.
When the Hungarians were defeated by the Turks in 1526, Hungary accepted Austrian Hapsburg rule in order to escape Turkish domination; the Hapsburg monarchy was the first to include all of the Slovene regions. Thus, Slovenia and Croatia became part of the Austro-Hungarian kingdom when the dual monarchy was established in 1867. Like Croatia and unlike the other Balkan states, it is primarily Roman Catholic.
From as early as the 9th century, Slovenia had fallen under foreign rulers, including partial control by Bavarian dukes and the Republic of V
Crossed Wires. Epilogue 2.Feeling rather important now that she is dating a nightclub owner, Bess has begun spending less and less time hanging around with her former friends. Her main excuse for it is that she is far more mature and needs to spend time with people who are have the same interests and don’t behave like children. However, her friends know that it was predominantly because they weren’t as impressed with her choice and behaviour when they did go out together and had told her so. On top of all that, when she took them to the club a few days after she had begun dating him, she had told them that because she was dating the owner it meant that they could not only get in for free, but could also get free drinks all night. It turned out not to be true and after watching Bess throw a very childish and selfish tantrum at her boyfriend for embarrassing her like that. They ended up leaving the club and making their way to another one, just down the road, only to have the angry young woman follow
Share House, IntroductionThe sleeves of my flannel shirt are caked in mud, but I but it on anyway. It hides my arms really well. Lara has been up for about an hour already, putting her collection of pastel coloured soaps in order for the millionth time. She’s a clean freak and is probably OCD but I don’t want to say that in case she thinks I’m rude. We've only been here a few weeks and I don't want her to hate me already.
Monica’s still in bed. Her eyes are open and she’s staring at the assignment we were meant to have completed last week. The wooden panels of her bed are covered in itchy rainbow yarn which annoys the shit out of Lara because it’s not symmetrical.
The David Bowie poster on the wall aloofly surveys our daily routine, overlooking every move we make over his sunglasses. There’s a Ramones poster next to him but it's been splattered with so much nail polish on it you can hardly tell it’s them.
I looked at my face in the mirror. Every day, I beg
On Gender Dysphoria“Why do you always dress like a boy?”
Confused, I looked up from where I was pulling my shoes on. “I’m sorry?” I asked, frowning at my mum where she was washing dishes at the sink.
“You,” she said, turning to me and leaning back against the bench. “Why do you always insist on dressing like a boy?”
“I… don’t,” I replied hesitantly, still confused.
“Yes, you do. You’re always dressing like a boy, or wanting to. Why?”
Thinking for a moment, I remember Shaylah’s sixteenth birthday party, 60’s themed, which I’d wanted to attend as a classic gangster. Then, I remembered last weekend, when I’d gone to the Sugar City Comicon, dressed as Femlock, then looked down at myself now, wearing a black dress shirt and slacks for Film Friday of the school’s Spirit Week, probably the best, most entertaining week of the year. “Not really.”

We came to this planet because ours was gone.
The quest for power consumed our home. The need for domination destroyed us. Still we live, and yet there is a piece in each of us that has been decimated forever. We will never recover what we have lost.
I look down upon this planet, and I wonder why we try.
It is evident by now that we have lost the capacity for peace. War follows in our wake. We came to retrieve the AllSpark, which has long since been lost, and we are still here. All that came of attempting to revive our planet was the relocation of the war from our planet of death to this planet of life. There is so much life on this planet. All of it we have sworn to protect. This is the promise we have made to them. But the promise would not need to have been made if we had never co
