M.E Awareness Week and my storyOk, I know I don't really write about my CFS/M.E because it gets a bit depressing to read about sometimes but May is M.E awareness week and the reason there is no cure is basically because so many people either don't believe in it or they don't know what it is so there is very little research. So here's a link about exactly how it feels and another to find ways to help even if it's just spreading the word on social networks. My Story. I was diagnosed with m.e when I was eight years old and before that I'd been a crazy, wild happy enthusiastic child who had huge dreams what she was going to do, travel the world in a campervan, become an actor and wildlife presenter and traveling the world, learning languages and everything I could. Then I woke up at three in the morning with agonizing leg pains and my world was flipped upside down. I couldn't go to school, I had to be homeschooled but that made me really ill because of the

They have their own category "phylogenetic family"But even despite that face, red pand

The world has changed over the last few decades in a very big way, but some are apparently unaware of it or undisturbed by the stunning ramifications.Advanced sur

10 Tips to Improve your Digital ArtA while ago I posted some tips on how to improve your art. While that article was rather general, this one is an addition to it, focusing on digital drawing and painting – so make sure to read both.It's made for beginners, so it's just really basic stuff. I hope it's helpful!:iconCutebow1plz::iconCutebow2plz::iconCutebow1plz:1. Get a tabletOf course there are artists who create beautiful pictures with a mouse, but trust me, drawing with a graphics tablet is more natural and a lot easier once you're used to it.Tablets have one big advantage over mouses: Pen pressure. Depending on how hard you press the line gets thicker and darker or thinner and lighter, similar to a real pen on real paper. I'd recommend getting a small, cheap Wacom tablet to start out. Also make sure your tablet always has the newest drivers installed! You can download them on the Wacom website.More information about tablets
Collection: GlassesShare|ArchiveGlassesIt would seem counter-intuitive that a person wearing glasses—i.e., a person in need of a device to properly identify and understand incoming visual perceptual information—would be assumed to be more rather than less intellectually gifted. And yet that’s the transformative power of donning a pair of glasses, the thicker-lensed and clunkier the better.Tim Burton - One Man Showby RodneyPike
Abstract ArtShare|ArchiveAbstract ArtBy techgnoticEmotions Abstract by zampedroniThe earliest known artworks of humans, found on cave walls dating back about 40,000 years, tell stories.Usually the stories are of amazing hunts for enormous wooly mammoths and other food sources. Others suppose they were plans for hunts, no different from a coach’s football plays.Today we are learning of abstract artworks on the cave walls, seemingly deliberately hidden, and much farther back, painted by medicine men huffing hallucinogenic herbs. The purpose for these totemic abstracts is unclear. While native art worldwide retained its
Collection: Blue HarvestShare|ArchiveBlue HarvestThe Harvest time of year represents the last heroic exertion of labor to gather in for storage the bounty of crops to sustain life through the approaching Autumn and Winter. The health and relative comfort of an entire village or settlement, or a single remote homestead, through the cold and barren months, depends on a successful harvest. A blighted harvest means fear and prayers that the winter will be mild and of short duration, that the limited food might provide enough sustenance. In modern society, the Harvest has come to represent receiving just and due reward for any endeavor one has worked long and hard to make a success. But this gallery of
