You're blind until you want to see. You have wings because you believe you do.

And I wonder how some people are afraid of height.

"All they want to talk about is how much drugs Kurt and I did. That is not all we did. We had a life. We ate breakfast. We ate lunch. We ate dinner. We rented movies, and ate ice cream. We would read out loud to each other almost every night, and we prayed every night. We had some fucking dignity." - Courtney Love

Greenland 2012: Chasing the Light by Zaria Forman

Artist Zaria Forman creates large-scale, realistic landscapes using only chalk pastels. 

"In August 2012, I led an Arctic expedition up the NW coast of Greenland. Called "Chasing the Light," it was the second expedition the mission of which was to create art inspired by this dramatic geography. The first, in 1869, was led by the American painter William Bradford. My mother, Rena Bass Forman, had conceived the idea for the voyage, but did not live to see it through. During the months of her illness her dedication to the expedition never wavered and I promised to carry out her final journey.

These drawings were inspired by this trip. Documenting climate change, the work addresses the concept of saying goodbye on scales both global and personal. In Greenland, I scattered my mother’s ashes amidst the melting ice.”  

Forman donates a percent of all sales to 350.org, a global climate movement.

SIR KEN ROBINSON: Full body education

I always enjoy these comics, but I particularly like this one. Every so often I have to say “Screw you, Quiznos,” because when I was working there to save up money for college and I told my Manager and Coworkers I was going to art school they literally laughed in my face, and said they’d see me back there as a ‘starving artist’. I remember when I was dealing with a kid who really wanted to be able to draw well but was frustrated that he couldn’t, I asked him ‘Are you pretty good at Math?’ and he said ‘Yeah,’ and I said ‘How many hours of math have you been taught, year after year in school, how many hours have you studied it at home, practiced it, compared to how many often you’ve taught and practiced how to draw?’ 

People so quickly forget that back in the day when we had DaVinci and Michelangelo, that was all that they did, and they were paid handsomely for it! Back then if you had a kid that was even remotely interested in the arts, you would try to hook them up with an apprenticeship, just like a squire to a knight, and that kid would live and breathe art, often painting for the Master after a time. And this is like when kids were young, like 9 years old, not after they’d already had the love of learning beaten out of them by an education system that values nothing but math and science and obedience and they’re 18. I can’t even imagine how much better an artist I would be if I’d been taught art with the same vigor I was taught math.
