Made for :iconkaremelancholia: yellow love story [link]

Chapter 12 in ‘Through the looking glass’ by Lewis Carroll
The final two lines are

Lingering in the golden gleam --
Life, what is it but a dream?

In Karemeloncholia’s Yellow love story I think I see many allusions to both ‘Through the looking glass’ and’ Alice in wonderland’

I chose to interpret the story with that in mind.

We all think that we would be better off somewhere else from time to time, the unfortunate amongst us make that an extremely final reality.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs

I would just like to say thank you Steve. Thank you for every iPod i’ve ever had, thank you for Granny Smith, the macbook pro I’m currently typing on, thank you for Louis my iPhone and thank you for your son who I text on it who has brought so much joy to my life. If he is anything like you, and I know he is, the world has lost an incredible person and father tonight. I am so sorry we never had the chance to meet, but I hope you’re at peace wherever you are :heart:

I was going to draw something with Reed in it…but it didn’t feel right. Plus if he ever saw this I highly doubt he would appreciate being drawn as a my little pony, of which I decided to draw for the first time since there are so many other MLP tributes. Sorry, I just threw together what I would look like as an mlp and yes I look like apple jack but hey we’re both blonde, we like orange and we’re southern.

Thank you for looking.

Rest in Peace Mr. Jobs.

A old Illustration done in January of 2008

may 5 or "cinco de mayo" is conmemorative date in Mexico. General Ignacio Zaragoza and the mexican army defeat in combat to the french army in Puebla. So, my salute to mexican people in this day :)... BTW, Pancho Villa is not related to this battle, but... well, u catch the point XD

Feliz 5 de mayo a los amigos mexicanos :) como lo prometido es deuda, aqui esta Pancho Villa.


José Doroteo Arango Arámbula, better known as Francisco "Pancho" Villa, came from the northern state of Durango. He was one of the leaders of the Mexican Revolution. Villa with his army of Villistas joined the ranks of the Madero movement. He led the Villistas in many battles, such as the attack of Ciudad Juárez in 1911 (which overthrew Porfirio Díaz and gave Madero power), the Battle of Celaya.

In 1911, Victoriano Huerta appointed Villa his chief military commander. During this period Huerta and Villa became rivals. In 1912 when Villa's men seized a horse and Villa decided to keep it for himself, Huerta ordered Villa’s execution for insubordination. Raúl Madero, brother of President Madero, intervened to save Villa's life. Jailed in Mexico City, Villa escaped to the United States. Soon after the assassination of President Madero, Villa returned with a group of companions to fight Huerta. By 1913 the group had become Villa's División del Norte (Northern Division). This army led by Villa had numerous American members. Villa and his army, along with Carranza and Obregón, joined in resistance to the Huerta dictatorship.

Villa and Carranza had different goals. Because Villa wanted to continue the revolution, he became an enemy of Carranza. After Carranza took control in 1914, Villa and other revolutionaries who opposed him met at what was called the Convention of Aguascalientes. The convention deposed Carranza in favor of Eulalio Gutiérrez. In the winter of 1914, Villa and Zapata's troops entered and occupied Mexico City. Villa's treatment of Gutiérrez and the citizenry outraged more moderate elements of the population, who forced Villa from the city in early 1915.

In 1915, Villa took part in two of the most important battles during the revolution, the two engagements in the Battle of Celaya, on April 6–7 and from April 13–15. Obregon defeated Villa in the Battle of Celaya, one of the bloodiest of the revolution. Carranza emerged as the winner of the war and seized power. A short time after, the United States recognized Carranza as president of Mexico. On March 9, 1916, Villa crossed the United States–Mexico border and raided Columbus, New Mexico, in a vengeance attempt against the arms dealer who sold the ammunition used on the Battle of Celaya which was useless for Villa's forces. During this attack, 18 Americans were killed as well as 90 of Villa's men.

Pressured by Public Opinion (mainly driven by Hearst Newspapers) to confront Mexican attacks, US President Wilson sent General John J. Pershing and 10,000 U.S. troops on an unsuccessful pursuit to capture Villa. It was known as the Punitive Expedition. After nearly a year of pursuing Villa, Pershing was called off and given command of the American Expeditionary Force in World War I. The American intervention had been limited to the western sierras of Chihuahua.It was the first time the American Army used airplanes on military operations.

Regardless of the intervention, the loss of the Battle of Celaya meant the rise to power of Carranza and the Sonora generals.

In 1920, Obregón (one of the sonorenses) finally reached an agreement with Villa, who retired from the armed fighting. In 1923 Villa was assassinated by gunfire while traveling in his car in Parral. It is pressumed such assassination was ordered by the sonorenses who feared a suppposed bid for the presidency by Villa, breaching the 1920 agreement.

Edit: It was such a surprise for me when I found out that this simple piece I made as a silly gift for my boyfriend was featured as a DD... Although it's not my best piece, I feel happy for it being the one to get it, cause I think it has such a nice message behind it... It's something worthy of standing for! It's really good to know that more people are receiving this message today! And all these nice comments I've been receiving from people who looked at it and smiled... just can't describe it. Totally made my day!
