Sak Yant or Yantra Tattooing are  believed to give the wearer magic powers associated with healing, luck, strength, and protection against evil.

You can get these here in thailand by a monk, they look beautiful but I’d never recommend it. Essentially, you’re making a pact with a spirit to protect you in exchange for sacrificing an activity or habit you may have previously enjoyed (the monk decides what this is, not you). These tattoos are contracts. 
 Breaking your side of the bargain may encourage the spirit to ‘punish’ you, and these contracts are not easily voided.

Since I’ve been playing Wildstar so much here lately, I thought I’d celebrate with a little concept art dump!!  Some of the many random things I drew during my time at Carbine.  Also I’m sure Andy Cotnam, Mindy Lee, or Johnson Truong probably had a hand in the concepting of more than a few of these.  What a super talented team I had!

Just a word here, for the moment. I studied stage design at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, receiving an MFA in Costume Design. I make critters, both ‘fine’ and commercial. More anon!

Bejeweled and begrimed. Seductive yet repulsive. Marilyn Minter’s Strut, a dirty heel wearing a Dior stiletto, is enamel painted on metal.
Allison Harding, assistant curator of contemporary art at the Asian Art Museum, writes:

Despite the excesses of Minter’s work, I cannot stop staring at one small speck of grime on the larger-than-life heel. It is just under the fleshy, swollen fold of the skin right about where the ankle meets the heel. It looks wet, three-dimensional, and for reasons I cannot quite express, outright disgusting. I feel this filthy speck and it sends shivers down my spine, undoing the façade of glamorous. It is just too close to real life. Of course, this is exactly the point. Minter’s subject reminds us that, in the end even the most glamorous figure will be covered in dirt.

How do you respond to Strut? It is beautiful? Revolting? Glamorous? Gorgeous? Or something else?

Gorgeous brings together the collections of the Asian Art Museum and SFMOMA. The exhibition, on view at the Asian Art Museum, explores the extremes and ambiguities of beauty, inviting viewers to draw their own conclusions.

My characters are lost in another universe again. I’m as lost as them because I have no idea what I’m doing here, how anything works out and yes, most of the designs don’t make sense. No, I’m not sorry.
