Weavercat is a 22 yr-old female thing who doesn't know what she wants to do in life. A current art-student who has rediscovered her love of prehistoric critters. I'd like to be a scientific/medical illustrator someday.

Dropped off a new batch of bookmarks, lightly colored with watercolors and sepia acrylic ink, at the gift shop. Also, dropped off the 3 4”x12” canvases with Magpies on fenceposts. It’s not exactly what I want to be selling, but, the people like em. I have a 18”x 24” canvas that I’d like to put a bear on, and be a little more…’me’. 

I’m happy. I’m making money and doing art through a very good outlet. <3 Maybe I’ll do a livestream of this but… I’m not sure. Live-feeds of my doing things helps me stay on task but it is distracting too. Hmm.

Thoughts. Just thoughts.

*Disclaimer - This isn’t supposed to encompass all disciplines of art, so apologies if this doesn’t apply to you in your situation.

This post. Right here. Especially the first part of it. Guess what I want to do with my BFA? I want to be a scientific illustrator. That’s why I’m going for a Biology-minor as I need a better than average knowledge of biology than a non-science major. I want to make science accessible to people through art. I want to work in a text-book company. I want to learn about science as I work creatively. My dream-job? Doing an illustration or model for a museum or going out into the field to work. 

Love how this graphic presents my and many of my friends situations. I’m not an art student because I’m: lazy or useless. I’m an art student because I freaking love the science behind art. Printmaking! Painting! Photography! Sculpture! Design! We’re engineers, chemists, carpenters… we’re kind of like, handy-people. Even if we have an emphasis in one area doesn’t mean we can’t also be proficient in mixing chemicals for photography or carving out prototypes for a medical-supply company.

Also, the Exam. I… I never thought about it at the time but, this is exactly it. We practice to become more proficient and to test what we know already. 

TL;DR: A lot of art and science feelings right here.

STOP SCROLLING

Please? It’s on YouTube, not hosted on Tumblr.

Okay.

Watch this please. It’s only a little over 5 minutes.

It’s about NASA, but…please. Watch it. If you can’t watch it, bookmark it or something and watch it later. Please.

This is about how NASA influenced the entirety of the US culture into innovation and forward thinking. I guarantee your view of the US space program will change drastically, for the better.

Thank you!

Oh, and when you’re done viewing, please reblog to spread the word.

signal boost the fuck out of this guys. this is serious.

Sharing this on facebook for the hell of it.

would you dare see tomorrow?

Well dang, I didn’t think I would end up crying during this video. I just, have I a lot of love for science. It’s amazing what discoveries come from fear and how quickly we quit that fear. We make discoveries because we are afraid of the future and curious about what we can do to make it not frightening. We don’t make discoveries when we are peaceful. This is how I felt about wanting to be a scientist, paleontologist, marine biologist, zoologist, or astronomer. I don’t want to sound sappy but this is what makes me want to be an artist. I think that the merging of science and art, in all media, are best suited to one another simply because, they are… physical. (Or as physical as some theoretical ideas can be) Easily accessible to the public.

There are rules to playing in science and in art. Yet, we can break these rules and are encouraged to break them.

TL;DR Rambling science feels.

This looks like&#8230; a Soyuzmultfilm. I cannot tell which one though. Maybe &#8216;The Golden Antelope&#8217;, &#8216;The Tale of Tsar Saltan&#8217;,&#8217;The Scarlet Flower&#8217;, or&#8230; &#8216;The Hump-Backed Horse&#8217; aka &#8216;The Magic Pony&#8217;.
[Edit: I was wrong! This is from the Chinese short-film &#8216;A Deer of Nine Colors&#8217;.  It is produced by the Shanghai Animation Film Studio in 1981. Although, you could probably see why I thought it was a Soyuzmultfilm though. XD ]
