My ArtSnacks box for September 2014! Five sheets of Clearprint Vellum paper - double-sided and translucent (lovely finish); Kimberly drawing pencil by General Pencil in 6B (very soft); KUM Correc-Stick eraser (not the best eraser but the shape is cute); ZIG Mangaka Cartoonist Flexible Marker black (this is an interesting nib - flexible but not a brush); Windsor Newton Water Color Brush marker in Cerulean Blue (I got some of these markers a few weeks ago at Michael’s and loved the colors but the “watercolor” part was disappointing). Smarties - yum!

12 Things White People Can Do For Ferguson

White people who are sick and tired of racism should work hard to…

This is the reality of how we live whether we choose to see it or not. We must choose to see and act.

Charm magazine started in the 1940s, but it came into its own in 1950, when it relaunched as “The Magazine for Women Who Work,” and hired Cipe Pineles as art director. Pineles is a legendary designer who earlier art directed…

This has been badly photoshopped - they removed the contours under his eyes and smoothed the skin. Heresy! Screen grab included to prove it.

April ArtSnacks!: Koh-I-Noor Tri-tone colored pencil in Forest; Windsor &amp; Newton Vine Charcoal Soft; Liquitex Soft Body Acrylic Paint in Ultramarine Blue; Snap Series Brush by Princeton Artist Bursh Co. (#1 Round). 
I&#8217;m very pleased  especially with the Liquitex paint and the paintbrush. I&#8217;ve been collecting this paint in the clearance bin at A. C. Moore for the last few weeks and didn&#8217;t have this color. The brush is very fine. 
I&#8217;m less excited about the tri-tone pencil and the vine charcoal but I may take that as a challenge.

It never has.

Will we ever learn this? We must if we hope to evolve to better people.

i really admire the design for these stairs and how they incorporate a wheelchair access ramp. in a world were barrier free design is essential to living a full and happy life, its amazing to see landscape architect Cornelia Oberlander has taken literal steps to design stairs AROUND a ramp, instead of the other way around.

This is beautiful.

Form AND function excuse me while I die

I saw steps like this down near Changwon.  it might even be these ones.

While this is a striking design, I don&#8217;t think it could be built in the US since ADA Ramp Guidelines requires handrails on ramps. It&#8217;s just not safe.
