Thoughts. Just thoughts.

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.
Please? It’s on YouTube, not hosted on Tumblr.
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.
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.
From the stream that was cut short. :> Lots of Borzois! I think these are the neatest dogs…. man. Someday.
Just practicing. Yay for invisible steps! Oh, and that’s Az. She recently had her side-burn dangles trimmed. Font is “Chocolate Box”.

“1) Amateur Artists wait for Inspiration
While a professional artist will make a point sit down and work on their art every day, an amateur only works on their art when the “mood” is right.”
In our Art Career Orientation class we talk about what we want from the school and from a future career. What I expect to learn from the school is how to counteract my biggest flaw: A lack of discipline. I am relearning to just do it. Not wait. Don’t flip-flop. Keep schedules and STICK TO THEM. It’s a neat class and I’m already taking bits from it for my use. I have a non-distracting big pad of a calender that is keeping me on track.
[Time-Stamp: 11:50pm MT] Weird stuff is going on.
Ah dear, this is what happens when I have a few things on the mind. Out comes the weird. I’m not going to explain it but there is a little Wanting Deer in the corner for Wolfyttwisted.
