Things to look at, good things.
I love this picture
. I keep looking at it. You know what it reminds me of, a little? The Red Balloon
, which was a French short film I had on video when I was wee about a boy with a balloon that was murdered by bullies and how all the other balloons comforted him and took him up to heaven. Or something like that. *nostalgia*
And I love this picture
, too. She looks like she's lost in a memory. Like, just seconds before, she was partying and grooving to some happy music and then she caught a wiff of some scent that sent her down a melancholic memory lane. And in just a moment she will smile wistfully over the memory and then think of all the good things she has right now and go back to dancing.
And I love Warren Ellis, because he lets me let my cynical nature out to play and points out how very horrifying our world could be. I think I may pick up his new series
. We'll see.
Also, this site
has insanely cute fanart of DC comics and animated characters. SO CUTE!!!
I like Steven Cook's
photos and photomanips. They have this interesting quality to them -- almost... hyper-real? I don't know. "Summer's End" is my favorite because the story he tells with just those juxtaposed images is awesome and cool and creepy.
One of my favorite artists of all time is Fujiwara YowKow. Unfortunately, his website went away a long while ago and I can't find another one. I actually loved his work so much that I wrote him several e-mails of praise. And, amazingly enough, he wrote back! There was, of course, a vast language gap, but still. Anyway, since his website is defunct (unless anyone knows of a working link...?), I shall share some of my favorites by him ( behind this here LJ-cutCollapse )inkwraith
's art. Of those up here
, Sanzumir and the Sea Maiden are my favorites, but she has so many other wonderful things tucked into her sketchbooks. She should post more of it, yes.
Now you will rec me more pretty art to look at!
