Well the end result will be a body of works for my senior show. So the end result will be at least 6 prints that will be either woodcuts or lithographs.
The research is mostly for myself to make sure that I actually understanding what I’m making art of.

I still want to see the things. I’m greedy that way.

The Bhaja Caves of Maharashtra, India.

Bhaja contains about 29 rock-cut caves, which date back to the 2nd century BCE, and is described by the Archaeological Survey of India to be “one of the important Buddhist centres of Hinayana faith in Maharashtra.” 

A prominent features of Bhaja is Cave 12, a chaitya-griha, pictured in the final photo, which is considered one of the earliest of its kind. The stupa at the back of the large apsidal hall was used for worship. Cave 20 contains a group of stupas, which were built in memory of deceased monks, and probably once contained their relics.

Cave 18 was a monastery, and its verandah contains two famous sculpted reliefs. One of these (pictured in the 2nd photo) is located to the left of the door. This artwork depicts a person riding an elephant (thought by some to be Indra) who carries an ankusa (elephant goad), with attendants aside the figure, carrying a banner. The second relief shows a royal personage aside two women. The royal figure (who some identify as Sun god Surya), rides a chariot driven by four horses, and appears to be trampling a demon-like figure.

Photos courtesy of & taken by Himanshu Sarpotdar. The write-up of the site done by the Archaeological Survey of India was of great reference to me when writing this post.

Okay, Tumblr, let’s make this go viral. You all know that representation in the media is desperately needed, and this game is delivering what many of the big-name games haven’t. Pumpkin Online is made by a development team headed by an African-American woman and they’re aiming to make this game as inclusive and friendly as possible. This is a farming/romance sim mixed up with an adventure MMORPG and made incredibly diverse.

You want to play a non-binary character? You got it! You want a range of races in your NPC neighbors? Done! Clothing choices and body features not restricted by gender? It’s in there! Relationships in no way affected by gender or lack of gender? Yes, that too!

Let’s get this thing going viral and help promote the Kickstarter (link in the article) so that everyone gets the chance to play the character they want to play. Reblog buttons, do your thing!

Thanks to US Uncut for this! BREAKING: Detroit’s unelected emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, has just relinquished control of the Detroit Water and Sewage Department, which is now back in the hands of the people. It’s expected the mayor and city council will approve a water affordability plan that caps a household’s water bill at no more than 3 percent of their income.

Of course! Make use of the tag search, as well. It’s exceptionally useful there.

I would actually be interested in reading the end result of what you’re doing, in fact, if you don’t mind? Or not, as it suits you.

Important, always-relevant comic done by the wonderful Ursa Eyer.

And that anon asshole actually had the nerve to ask me how I knew that someone was being hostile to me on the street, if I didn’t actually hear the words they used.  This is how I knew.  Years and years and years of street harassment (not always this kind of street harassment, but street harassment is street harassment whether it’s about being female, or ambiguously gendered, or ugly, or disabled).  I know the fucking tone by now.

So, for many people in California, water is literally going to run out for them before the end of the year, which is a completely ridiculous thing to ever have happen. Bottled water companies and various companies who use excessive water for extracurricular activities are not really taking into consideration the environment surrounding their area, and are pretty much bleeding California dry.
I don’t really have much in the way of helping, but not supporting those companies is always a great idea, which is why I personally recommend Bobbles.
They’re reusable plastic bottles that are fairly cheap and utilize a carbon filter that usually runs you less than $5 per filter and typically come two filters to a pack, and lasts you a good couple of months. You can buy them on Amazon, and I’ve seen them in places like Best Buy and Walgreens, so they’re bound to be in all sorts of places outside of that.
Tap water in most areas has been found to basically not be any more dangerous to your health than bottled water, but if you’re really unsure or paranoid like me, these filters do a great job without having to buy an attachment filter for your sink faucet.
There are TONS of short term solutions to help you guys out, but I figure having a reference or two drop on your dash might make the decision to jump to filters as opposed to traditional bottled water a little simpler to make.
Here’s a handy-dandy link to the Amazon search page if you’re interested.

bottled water is a SCAM and one that literally is endangering the environment and contributing to the horrific wildfires CA experiences every year. Get a filtered bottle like this, or something similar. Way cheaper and better for the environment! Remember, water, like any other resource, is valuable. Don’t waste it!

I have a Bobble bottle and it’s fucking great. I got it for school because our dorms have shitty-tasting water from the tap but I use it everywhere. It filters the water and makes it taste way better. Also it looks cool and is durable enough that I’ve knocked it off my desk many times at school and it’s not dented or broken or even barely scratched at all.

Our household has multiple Bobble bottles. The water on the UCF campus (where I take classes) is known to have high amounts of carcinogens in certain buildings, so we figured this would at least help.
Definitely worth the price.
