My name is Cheryl, Im a 3rd year fashion and textile student. These images are my sources of inspiration and enjoyment. I also have another page of my own creations: http://spiderswebsandmagic.tumblr.com/
Just another update. This is the project I am forcing myself to start and finish. A friend of mine is getting married (not soon, but eventually) to her girlfriend of four years and I can’t make the wedding (being broke, jobless, and three states away) so I promised I would make her anything it was within my ability to make. She asked for a Nyan Cat scarf. Normally, I wouldn’t take on something I have no idea how to make, but, you know, friend of about eight years, not attending her wedding, and that puppy dog look that kills me every time. So here it is.
I’m actually making decent progress on this. I couldn’t find a way to make the rainbow go up and down the way it does in the video that I liked, so I’ve decided to make it extra hard on myself and make the entire rainbow in small panels and then stitch them together off-height. I’ve got three done and I like it. Anywho, I’ll keep working and try to space out my reblogs so I don’t flood anyone dashboard. Thanks all. ^-^
I was doing some reading about cognitive science, the brain, perception, art, and all that kind of cool stuff, when I stumbled across a really intriguing story: this Victorian-era artist named Louis Wain. He was initially known for his illustrations of cats doing human things—standing up wearing glasses, playing golf, generally doing proto-lolcat sorts of things—to entertain his terminally-ill wife. Later in life, however, he began to develop schizophrenia, and his paintings reflected the change in his visual perception. It just got me thinking how crazy-awesome and fascinating the brain is as well as the nature of perception. The idea that perception is tied to the way your brain impulses work and the way your body responds to the mixture of chemicals floating around it.
