The Cold Light of Reason/A Thousand Years Old Song.
These twin pieces were created this morning, fueled by the fathomless joy of not having to work 11 straight hours. I’m very pleased with the result and this new technique is very, very satisfactory. Thanks to kyletwebster for his beautiful Nupastel brush, which made this possible!
Also Adventure Time is quite possibly the most ‘fanartable’ show ever. And for this I am ever so thankful.

PSA FOR RESIDENTS OF LONDON
My friend Xabi had his bag taken from outside Camden Eye (Camden Town) last night. He’s from Spain and recently moved back over here. Xabi went out to have a smoke outside The Camden Eye and in the seconds he had put his bag down, someone had walked off with it.
His 3 sketchbooks were in the bag. They are filled with story ideas and sketches from the past 2 years or more.
It’s a long shot, but if anyone sees this bag, or the notebooks, please let me know ASAP, or call Xabi ASAP. His details are on the poster.
Xabi is also a good friend of mine and has lost 3 sketchbooks filled with two years worth of drawing and writing, something I could not even begin to understand or accept losing. I lost ONE sketchbook once of random drawings, so three filled with concentrated, personal, beautiful work would just completely destroy me! If anybody living in London sees or hears anything, please contact Xabi- the information is in the pics.
I am keeping hopeful and wishing with all my heart that they are found and returned to him!

As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.
Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.
Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.
In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding.
Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis.
These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.
While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.
HOLY STEAMING SHITFUCKS
WHY IS EVERYONE NOT LOSING THEIR SHIT ABOUT THIS
