Holy frelling Valen on a pogo stick.
This tumblr is supposed to be for my personal art, but let's face it - there's way too much art in the world for me to think that I can't share space.
So here you will see all kinds of stuff I think is great, interjected as often as I can with my own stuff. Which is also pretty cool, as personal art goes.

|French Friend:||Um, no. 406 Euro. It sounds a little high but it covers the cost of my textbooks, extra classes and most of my housing. How much is it for you?|
Malay Red Harlequin - Paralaxita damajanti
The Malay Red Harlequin, species Paralaxita damajanti (Lepidoptera - Riodinidae), is a striking butterfly native to peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra and Borneo.
These colorful butterflies are very difficult to locate, and invariably encountered singly. In semi darkness into the dense forests where this species inhabits, the butterfly is almost invisible to mammalian, reptilian or avian eyes, but the distinctive pattern and contrasting colors may reflect a strong ultra-violet trademark that could be essential to enable potential mates to locate each other.

Frame Weekly Organizer
For this creative idea, you will need
- A picture frame set like the one pictured above, with plenty of small frames. You can find these many places. Make sure it has at least 7 frames
- Decorative cardstock paper (or: wallpaper, wrapping paper, patterns, pictures, colored paper)
- Letter stickers (optional)
- Dry Erase markers
Cut your card stock paper into 5x7” rectangles, or however big your frames are. The size should be on the frame. Most frames have a cardboard back that is removable and you can use to trace the shape. Write or place your letter stickers on the card stock to spell out days of the week. Be conscious of how you are going to place them in the frame; will it be vertical or horizontal? Place the cutouts into the frame. If your frame is metal, glue a magnet to the side of the dry erase marker and attach it to the frame. Otherwise you may just want to find a way to get it to stay on the frame.
Write some notes on top of the glass, that way you can erase with ease!
I have an iPhone. I don’t need this. But dammit, I want it
