The Most Gorgeous Book Ever Has No Words Or Pictures, Just Color
This is the RGB Colorspace Atlas by Tauba Auerbach. The 8”x8” hardcover tome is pretty much an encyclopedia of every color in the RGB index. It’s huge, it’s gorgeous, and I want one.
I KNOW WHAT THIS NEEDS
It’s like they were made for each other.
Sensors alight, the pen trailed itself sensually down the gradient shift from yellow to blue along ample curve of paper, dipping closer and closer to the book’s spine.
“Can you imagine it?” the pen whispered, whirring and selecting #00563F with practiced intimacy. “Just picture it. With your collection and my potential…we can color the world.”
A pen and a book
A notepad and a clock

How the fuck did it end up like this
Once again proving I am five years late on any bandwagon, I decided to try flexing my character design muscles and tried drawing a couple of pokemon gijinka (that’s anthropomorphised versions of pokemon, for the uninitiated). This ludicrous collective is my Pokemon Y team, and it’s safe to say that without Affie I’d still be tootling around victory road, getting curbstomped by ambulatory rocks.
Trying to use varied body and face shapes that reflected the physical attributes of the individual monsters was a hell of a lot of fun, and getting to draw grumpy fat gardeners always makes my day <3
yesss these are so goood
Collette J Ellis
“Third re-dux of one of the four Chinese river dragons, she is the dragon of the Changjiang (long) river, the longest river in China, known for its rich array of wildlife.
Although the smallest of the four dragons, she makes up for this in length, her body fully stretched is as long as five ships. She feeds on deer, fish and plant life. Although she does not harm the Koi carp, as they feed on the algae and parasites that grow between her bumpy scales. The grass like appendages that grow from the top of her head and face are sensors, allowing her to lie in wait for any unsuspecting creature that might stray onto her head thinking that it is a floating log or outcrop of earth. She can also stun her pray using electrical pulses that come from the root-like appendages that grow under her chin. ”
I’ve loved this piece to death for ages. Check out the other 3 rivers too! They’re all very different. You can also check out an older rendition of the story these dragons are from, from the same artist here. plug plug
How do you get more amazing than this with a Pokemon cosplay?
aaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHh THIS IS AMAZING?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
mmmmm yesz my favourite
holy shit this amazing thing again
Hmmm there was that one time I switched all the non-humanoid Cousins into human shape, and switched Mr. Shrike into a lizardthing Cousin shape. Still rather fond of this.
In case the letters are confusing this is Ballius, The General, Araclumis, Quarren, and Mr. Jestopher Shrike. Most of these guys are pretty subterranean characters of mine and Araclumis is in fact canonically dead, so..

ohmygoshohmygosh I REALLY LIKE THESE
It’s that neurotic ghast gijinka again, being afraid of absofuckinglutely nothing.
Minecraft Nether mob gijinkas??
I got the idea for the ghast in a poncho thing and had to draw it. Ghasts have always seemed kind of neurotic to me, with their constant crying and strangely short attention span/rage spasms. I also thought it would be cool if magma cubes (and slimes too maybe) start out as huge mafia dons but the more you split them up the more they turn into lots of tiny little mobsters that get less and less badass with size.
I’m not so pleased with the big guy but I love the little mobster cube. His orange shirt peeks out when he jumps around.
Favorite Adventure Timers + Favorite Lines
I don’t even watch this show and find these moving.
Adventure Time keeps surprising me by randomly throwing in really great writing. In amongst all the entertaining randomness and adventure and dubious moral principles, sometimes there’s a line or two that just throws a spotlight on how well characterised each of the major figures is and it’s just like.. oh.. suddenly I understand who you are as a person, cartoon character, how’d that happen 8U

In which Andrej Pejic cosplayed as bismuth and other elements.
No I mean really, look:
That sets it for the first two.The copper-colored one I don’t know… Copper doesn’t have hard edges like that….Then there is, uh, Quartz maybe?
Oh my godddd that top one in particular. WOW I really love it.
These are silly I’m sorry.
I heard you wanted to know what I actually looked like, Quazar…
(I love that the Triceratops looks like she’s doing yoga over her fern or something, and Allo’s stegotail and EYEBROWS, and both of them for many reasons, but silliness begets silliness)
Now clearly you need to draw yourself with those brows every time.
Painting magic and glow effects in tegakiE is fucking hard and if I had more patience that picture would probably look not so messy.
Oh my gawd this is cool
I respect your patience with the glowy stuff because I know from experience how farking hard that is.
I really like Jupiter’s design.
omg jupiter is a kawaii papa
Uranus is extremely surly from all the butt jokes everyone is making about him
saturn is my beautiful waifu
Though my planet is technically Uranus. Poor guy. HUGS FOR YOU.
Wow I really like some of these. Look at Io so angry and covered in spots. Mars and Venus are a bit strange to me, and I don’t get why Saturn is blue but apart from that I love all of these. Earth is adorable.
