Transrealism THE NEW SCIENCE FICTION?
Transrealism was coined by writer, critic and mathematician Rudy Packer in his 1983 essay, “A Transrealist Manifesto,” as a description of a specific sort of science fiction that was emerging at that time.

NDAA has a partner in crimeMost of you have heard about the NDAA. Obama signed it into law on December 31, 2011. What I realized after some research is that the NDAA itself is not the problem. The NDAA has in fact been around for years. It's basically a bill that grants the US military the power to act if needed and get funding for the next year.NDAA has a partner in crime4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The problem is actually some unusual added provisions that came with NDAA for 2012. Specifically, section 1021, AKA the indefinite detention provision. Some have gone so far as to claim that the extra provisions turn the US military into a private/militant police force. The provisions permit the military to indefinitely detain US citizens under suspicion of terrorism. No trial required. And to some, protesting is a minor act of terrorism.
This is in violation of the Constitution in MULTIPLE parts. Article I, Section 9, clause 2 of the Constitution says "The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Inva

BioillustrationIntroductionBioillustration1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Bioillustrations has been around for years, but lately it's become more of a hot topic. Some universities have added degree programs in Bioillustration including University of Florida. Other universities have established programs such as Iowa State University, University of Toronto, John Hopkins University(whose medical and biological illustration program just celebrated it's 100th anniversary).
What is Bioillustration? It is the illustration of biological concepts and principles. Bioillustration is all around you. Open a biology or medical textbook, all the diagrams and figures are bioillustration.
For as long as there has been science, people have been devising ways to share their discoveries. The history of Bioillustration is hard to track down since it is not as widely studied. Instead of giving a history, I'm going to share about different historic artists and biologi

What Jesus Really Said About the PoorWhat Jesus Really Said About the Poor2 years ago in Personal More Like This
On this Christmas Day, it might be nice to remember what Jesus really said about the poor.
Luke 6:20-21 Then he looked up at his disciples and said: 'Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. 'Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. 'Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.'
Luke 4:16-19 When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:
'The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour.'

I do doodle. Most of the time I do basic black and white doodle, but now I am trying to challenge myself to make a colorful doodle. I am not really good in color, so I guess I have a lot of things to learn. So yeah, basically I do black and white doodle
2. Have you studied art or are you self taught.

It's designed to help breakthrough the tough crowd called "popularity." We all want to be popular right? But is that really what's important? no. Sure it's nice to attract attention, to get your work out there and be known to create fabulous artworks.

Digital painting tutorialHi, guys!Digital painting tutorial1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the steps of my new painting "The Chase"
The first step is a black and white sketch, very rough, just to establish the composition. I often try to place main objects in a scene following the rule of 3ds, this gives balance and harmony to the picture.
Next step is refining the shape and form. I made the ship on the left more white, to show that he is away from the ship in front. It is the rule of the air perspective. I also refined the sky.
I dodged the ship behind a bit more, like he's in the thin haze. Then i started to detail the sea. I wanted the light to come through the waves to give the water that wonderfull inner glowing. I studied reference photos of the wawes to understand the physics of the sea water. Notice how i painted reflections of the ship on the left side.
When i finished the main forms i bega

Here is the interview below - thanks to the Artist for the time in conducting and answering questions for our members.
What inspired me to take up art.
I couldn't say I can not remember a time when I wasn't drawing. As a child my sisters wanted Barbies I wanted art supplies. So I suppose I was born an artist. What kept me drawing were my interests. I drew what I loved horses and animals. And whatever had my interest at the time Swords and Fantasy Artherian legend. I have always drawn what I wanted.
What materials do you use and recommend
I am a pencil artist and draw on paper. I have done ink work and will be doing more of that soon. I also use coloured pencil and chalk pencil. What I recommend is difficult to say. Paper I buy by feel. I don't really care about a brand or manufacturer. I want acid free and something that feels right, I

Inventor of Implantable Pacemaker
Dies at 92
By BARNABY FEDER
Published: September 28, 2011 on The New York Times
Wilson Greatbatch, a professed “humble tinkerer” who, working in his barn in 1958,
designed the first practical implantable pacemaker, a device that has preserved millions of lives,
died on Tuesday at his home in Williamsville, N.Y. He was 92.
His death was confirmed by his daughter, Anne Maciariello.
Mr. Greatbatch patented more than 325 inventions,
notably a long-life lithium battery used in a wide range of medical implants.
He created tools used in AIDS research and a solar-powered canoe,
which he took on a 160-mile voyage on the Finger Lakes in New York to celebrate his 72nd birthday.
In later years, he invested time
