I have a feeling I’m going to get ill very soon… pretty much everyone I know and spend time around is ill.

The Harry Potter studio tour was so much more amazing than I expected. We also went when there were death eaters roaming about! I also tried butterbeer, if they sold it I’d drink so much of that stuff.

What does this say
An English childhood.
Juliette Losq first came about in 2005 when she won the Jerwood drawing prize. Since then she has gone on to release several exhibitions such as “Life of wood” in Seoul, back in 2009 and “Lucaria” At Theodore Art in New York in 2012. She’s even became a member of the Newhall Womens Art Collection and The Saatchi Collection.
Losq’s photo realism is wonderful and so detailed, but my favourite piece of art is the bottom image, which exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery. I think what makes it my favourite is that when you open the doors, inside the cabinet is a similar ink landscape to the one outside and I think that the whole look of it just flows, fits together nicely.
There’s a certain juxtaposition about Juliette Losq’s work, the classy almost gothic furniture and the serene yet chaotic landscape backgrounds. It’s like it’s telling a story.
The top image is featuring a gothic fireplace/mantlepiece it apart of the “Nemora” exhibition which open the 12th of September, in London at The Fine Art Society.
hifructose.com said “It is all part of an illusion meant to preserve an almost forgotten past.”
Fas London said “Losq conjures her own unique landscapes where we feel at our most safe yet most vulnerable: stray too close to the edge and the forest may snatch you into its depths”
What’s the story with all that red and gold? Biochemistry has the answer.
I’ve got another job interview! This one is on Monday at a local concert hall, I just got the call from the manager!

Learning about basic plant taxonomy so I can make my imagined hybridised plants more scientifically accurate!
It’s been pointed out to me that while my previous drawings are nice, it’s rather fantastical to put fungus and flowers into one plant.
I <3 William Shatner on Twitter
I love how they respond to him, as if he is actually a captain, even more.
Nasa confirmed for huge fucking nerds
This is awesome and priceless and people that work on space stuff are the best people of all time.
Honestly this just about brings me to tears.
Roddenberry, Shatner, Nimoy, Nichols and all the rest of the original Star Trek cast and crew had no small role in making the moon landing as important as it was. A few years before they set that lunar module down, this little TV show came along and fanned the dream into wildfire with an image of what humanity in space could actually look like—not only peaceful on our own world, endlessly curious, and prosperous enough to pursue it, but an active force for good in the greater universe. Carrying not what’s most toxic about us, but what’s best about us out to the stars.
Everybody who has worked at NASA or any other space agency for the past 50 years is waiting for the day when that unmanned probe doing a flyby on a comet can be controlled from the bridge of a space-faring vessel. When we’re not just looking at that comet through a color-coded sonar map, but we can look out a porthole and see it tumbling by with our own eyes. When as a species we can finally outgrow hate and fear and violence, and turn our faces with joy toward all the beauties and wonders that lie waiting to be discovered.
And every time he does this, Shatner is reminding them of what that hope feels like.
