Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.

A Date in Amsterdam

I always wanted to illustrate Hazel and Gus’s dinner date, plus my degree in architecture is over and I now have too much free time on my hands, so not only did I do a triptych, but I also decided to animate them, cinemagraph-style. To see the still versions, go to my deviantart here.

P.S. This is my first time making gifs! 

P.P.S. I’m thinking of taking the plunge and putting my prints up on Society6 or something, so I wonder if anyone’s interested? Of course, I’ll probably have to build up a sizeable amount of art first.

"By far, one of the best scenes in the book is where Kaling writes about the photo shoot she and Office co-star Ellie Kemper did for People’s Most Beautiful issue. When the stylist brought a trailer full of size zero gowns, Kaling found herself crying in the children’s bathroom of the public school where the photo shoot was happening. In the bathroom stall, she discovered a smear of what looked like excrement and a child’s graffiti: “This school is bulls–t!” which made her a) laugh and b) demand that the stylist alter one of the gowns to fit her. In the end photo, she’s smiling in a gorgeous fuchsia dress that the stylist had to rip down the back and alter with canvas. Looking at beautiful Kaling, though, you’d never know. It’s a sweet moment of chubby girl victory.” (via afterellen)

Broadway is about to get its most important LGBT show yet 

Broadway’s upcoming season features a show that will entirely change the way we talk about lesbians on stage.
Fun Home is a musical adaptation of Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel of the same name. It arrives on Broadway in 2015 after a sold-out, critically acclaimed run at the Public Theater. The show, which was nominated for this year’s Pulitzer in Drama, is the most daring, relentless analysis of homosexual identity on the New York stage right now. 
The set-up seems simple enough, but the results are anything but.
