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,
Growth in Consumer SpendingGrowth in consumer spending was down to various reasons; one being the improved economy. Income tax reductions in the pound fell to 7s. 9d. (39p) by 1964 (from 9s. 6d. – 47.5p – in 1957). Purchase tax reductions on cosmetic, cars and electric fires fell to 25% by 1963 (from 100% in 1951). A broader range of goods in shops sparked more tempting, accessible consumer choice, resulting from having less tax to pay and from increases in real wages – from 109p in 1960 to 122p in 1965. The improved economy increased Britain’s confidence to spend. These reasons explain why there was a growth in consumer spending in Britain in the 1960s.
Resulting from the improved economy, working conditions then improved. The government provided help for agriculture by giving grants and subsidies to encourage farmers to use new fertilizers, machines, animal feeds and farming techniques – this led to more mechanized, efficient and highly productive farming – in 1960-1961, ove
Affluence: Chief Cause of Social Change, the 1960sI strongly agree that affluence was the chief cause of social change in Britain in the 1960s.
A reason why affluence was the chief cause of social change in Britain is the growth of affluence and consumerism that helped break down the traditional working class/middle class divisions of the post-war era. Evidence for this is the increase in house ownership – from 8,000,000 in 1964 to 11,500,000 by the end of the 1960s. Another piece of evidence that supports my point is the increase in home ownership – nearly 6 million home were built during the 1960s. This evidence explains my point because it shows that these consumer goods were common and that everyone is on the same level as each other. These reasons explain why affluence was the chief cause of social change in Britain in the 1960s.
Another reason why affluence was the chief cause of social change in Britain is that it provided young people (the better off) with more opportunities and more of a status in life, offering n
Singer and PlayerGuitar Playing
" Baby I'm going to leave you"
Maybe I don't understand subtle.
But I sang your tunes
Listened to your blues.
Sometimes, making music
was the only way I could talk to you
the ache in my heart was so loud
that I thought you had plucked it out,
and played with my veins
the most beautiful melody
but would never let me hear it
I wonder constantly
What am I supposed to do?
But I still sang
like a little caged bird
trapped in the hollow of your guitar.
uno.Wir waren an einem komischen Ort. Es war eine Art Berghütte, aber dann doch wieder nicht – eher ein Unterschlupf. Flache Bauweise mit Fenstern, die viel breiter als hoch waren. Das Ganze war aus Stein und wurde von einem grossflächigen Dach bedeckt. Trotzdem fiel der Bau in der Berglandschaft nicht auf, er war eher versteckt, weder im Bergkessel, noch auf der Kulme angesiedelt, sondern mitten im Hang. Es waren ein paar Leute hier, ich weiss nicht mehr genau, wer alles. Ein paar Freunde halt, die zusammen ein paar Tage in eine Berghütte gehen. Es war Sommer und Abend als es dunkel wurde. Julia kam, legte ihre Arme neben mich.
Ich weiss nicht, ob vorher oder nachher, aber weiter unten, wo sich der Hang zu einem Bergkessel formte, brach ein Vulkan aus. Ein Feuerstrahl schoss senkrecht in den dunklen Himmel. Wir standen alle am Fenster, sahen dem Schauspiel zu und begannen Witze zu erfinden. Ich hatte Angst. Der Bergkessel füllte sich langsam mit der flüssige
Sun and MoonSome days I can't sleep
Smell your cologne in my sleep
Remember my childish squealing
Remember that now I'm still healing
From the cigarette burns,
that you left on my heart,
From the pills that were left in me
Poison from the start.
Do you remember,
the first time we met?
Eyes across the hallway
and the beating of my heart
Just like your guitar
and the squealing of the
children around you.
Oh the irony
Maybe I'll tell you one day.
But did you count
every day that went by?
because I know that I counted
every sleepless night
When I wondered where you'd gone
and if you were alright.
And the what if's that drove me crazy
and your motives that were unknown.
I swear I'm coming to California,
as soon as I get home.
If we'll still be able to get along.
Even if the time difference
is so wrong.
Can we still get tattooed?
If I don't speak to you.
If I can't trust you.
And the future
is so bright
Like the way I
Togliere il disturboNon fu straordinaria, speciale;
fu una storia come tante altre,
eppure merita d'esser scritta,
e stavolta almeno non per gli occhi di tutti.
Si vide e pensò che era ora di avere di più; subito rifletté e concluse che quel "di più" così vago aveva poco senso ma il solo averlo pensato le fece assaggiare la disperazione di ciò che non aveva e dentro di lei creava continue assenze che, seppur invisibili a chi le stava intorno, non lasciavano mai del tutto il suo sguardo che spesso puntava al nulla che le sembrava sempre troppo lontano.
Nel giro di pochi mesi, le sue condizioni divennero però manifeste e non poté nasconderle; la sua capacità di dissimulare divenne così flebile, tanto quanto la sua forza di inghiottire l'aria; si sentiva soffocare; letteralmente.
Preoccupati, più per educazione che per affetto, chi le stava accanto si prodigò affinché fosse curata; chi la visitò disse che in lei
My Simple LifeMy life down here is pretty simple.
When I first moved down here, I had to find a job quickly. I only had a small amount of funds to help pay rent, bills, and get food with. I had to find a job before this ran out. I was pretty lucky, and found a job at a clothing store in the tourist area. It paid pretty well, and I got pretty good hours. I have since been promoted to assistant manager, and I am in a management training program. I will soon be over my own store somewhere down here !
One of the things that I promised I would do before I moved down here, was to continue my education. It was the one thing my parents were most worried about. At first I was just taking basic classes, as I did not really know what I wanted to do with myself. Since I have been moving up in my job I decided that a business degree would probably be the best thing for me to do, and that is what I am now focusing on.
Well I think that is about all from me for now. Figure

Popular Uprising or Coup D'etat?The 1917 Bolshevik revolution was a coup d’etat, a military uprising to take power. One reason for this is the failure of the Provisional Government, their policies made them unpopular to lead Russia. The Provisional Government alienated peasants by; not immediately giving the landowners’ land to them; establishing land committees to gather information before reform – the peasants were furious with waiting for months; issuing a new requisitioning scheme that offered higher payments than in tsarist times. The Provisional Government repressed the peasants, this contradicted Kerensky’s aim for soldiers to show their heroism in the war, because they could now be seen as a weak government harming their own people (who wanted the change they didn’t receive) to restore order. The Bolshevik revolution was to be no different as there was too much to be done for 80% of the population (164,000,000 people) and that they themselves were a small exclusive group who tend
