So this is what I’ve been working on. I completely redesigned the whole thing. Check out my new website domain too. :)
The Inkling digital sketch pen captures a digital likeness of your work while you sketch with its ballpoint tip on any sketchbook or standard piece of paper. Designed for rough concepting and creative brainstorming, Inkling is ideal for the front end of the creative process. Later, refine your work on your computer using an Intuos4 tablet or Cintiq interactive pen display. In addition to...
A Definitive Guide to Leonardo da Vinci's... →
By Maria Popova From anatomy to aviation, or what Leonardo’s drawings reveal about cross-disciplinary creativity. Leonardo da Vinci possessed a rare kind of cross-disciplinary genius. It’s safe to say the Italian painter, engineer, architect, sculptor, scientist and futurist was one of the greatest minds that ever lived, a kind of intellectual and creative powerhouse that influenced centuries of...
Astronomers Find Planet Made of Diamond →
By Mark Brown, Wired UK An international team of astronomers, led by Australia’s Swinburne University of Technology professor Matthew Bailes, has discovered a planet made of diamond crystals, in our own Milky Way galaxy. The planet is relatively small at around 60,000 km in diameter (still, it’s five times the size of Earth). But despite its diminutive stature, this crystal space rock has...
Astronomers report seeing supermassive black hole... →
By Amina Khan, August 24, 2011, Los Angeles Times For the first time, astronomers say they’ve borne witness to a supermassive black hole consuming a star. Two papers released Wednesday by the journal Nature describe powerful blasts of radiation whose brightness and behavior can be explained only by a sun-sized star being torn apart by the gravitational forces of a black hole at the center...
Romantic Windows "Rooms with a View" →
Peter Schjeldahl writes this week about the show “Rooms with a View: The Open Window in the 19th Century,” at the Metropolitan Museum, which highlights Caspar David Friedrich and other Romantic artists “who became smitten, in the period during and after the Napoleonic Wars, with views of interior spaces that center on windows.”
NASA Satellite Finds Coldest, Darkest Stars Yet →
By Danielle Venton, August 23, 2011, Wired Science Stars as cool as the human body found by NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer offer astronomers the chance to study star formation and the atmospheres of planets like Jupiter, away from the light of more dazzling stars. The WISE satellite, decommissioned this year, returned data revealing 100 new brown dwarfs, sometimes termed “failed”...
Dolphins Blast Into School of Fish →
Dolphins and gannets blast through a shimmering, pulsing vortex of fish in these up-close glimpses of an underwater buffet. The video was taken by biologist Robin Vaughn during her graduate studies at Texas A&M University. She was interested in how dolphins — in this case, dusky dolphins in New Zealand’s Admiralty Bay — approached formations of schooling fish called prey balls. In a...

The Surprising Science of Smiles →
youmightfindyourself: Wired.com: Are we able to intuitively tell when someone is faking a smile? Marianne LaFrance: Yes, often, but not always. When experimental studies are done in which fake and apparently spontaneous smiles are shown in pictures or brief videos, to both adults and kids, and the only thing they have to do is mark a smile as genuine or not, people are pretty good at telling...
Why Some Seconds Seem to Last Forever →
By Danielle Venton, August 22, 2011, Wired Science Though our perception of time can be stunningly precise — given a beat to keep, professional drummers are accurate within milliseconds — it can also be curiously plastic. Some moments seem to last longer than others, and scientists don’t know why. Unlike our other senses, our perception of time has no defined location in our brain, making it...
bloodmemory asked: I was on your website. I seriously love your artwork. It is fantastic! You are an amazing painter!
beware-of-artists asked: I would like to know if there is a XML version of this theme, because I was thinking to use it as my blog theme. Thank you!
As some of you might have noticed, the font used in my Typewriter theme doesn’t support italics. I’ve been looking around to find a replacement font for the theme. Just thought you should know.

Six Months, Three Days →
By Charlie Jane Anders, June 8, 2011 The man who can see the future has a date with the woman who can see many possible futures. Judy is nervous but excited, keeps looking at things she’s spotted out of the corner of her eye. She’s wearing a floral Laura Ashley style dress with an Ankh necklace and her legs are rambunctious, her calves moving under the table. It’s distracting because Doug knows...
