Monte Cofano - Sicilia - Italia

I named this photo after a song by a-ha (the song I'm listening to now), but, this rocks actually remind me a lot the "Division Bell" album cover, by Pink Floyd... Don't they?

This photo is part of the project Frazione dopo Frazione

A photographic register of every single location at the Province of Trapani (Sicilia), no matter how small or big it is.
It means around 300 different locations.

When all the locations get photographed a photo-book will be made.

I made this after watching the "Searching For Sugar Man" documentary. Brilliant film, and such an amazing story of a truly brilliant artist who never knew his fame.

Watercolour, pencil and ink on paper with post-production digital manipulation

Inspired by (and character belongs to) Breaking Bad and works by Russ Mills, Change is a piece created for my International Baccalaureate Visual Arts course discussing the constarints of the mind, and whether circumstance and emotion can truly change us as people.

Ruins of Poggioreale - Sicilia - Italia

In the night between the 14th and 15th of Jannuary 1968 the Valley of Belice was hit by an earthquake of 6,4' Richter scale. 15 towns were badly damaged and the towns of Poggioreale, Gibellina, Salaparuta and Montevago were completely destroyed. 370 people died and over 70.000 were left homeless.

A new Poggioreale was built on a safer place and eventually its citizens moved there. But, the original city is still standing and became a real ghost-town. An intriguing complex of decaying buildings and streets, slowly being consumed by the time.

Unfortunately, as many places on Sicilia, Poggioreale isn't really open to tourist visitation. As a matter of fact, an eventual visitor will encounter some forbidden entrance signs and some closed gates. But, if you're persistent and curious like me, you'll discover that the west entrance isn't blocked. But, be extra careful! The place has no safety regulations and you may encounter army personal playing tactical war games there.

Prints and full resolution premium downloads will be submitted upon request.

A print of this painting can be bought here [link]


In dreams anything is possible, what appears to be so real and natural in a dream seems so surreal and unnatural in the real world. A lone dreamer stares up at a huge winged giant carrying a giant artefact on his shoulders which is attached to him with huge golden chains, a beam of light guides the giant and his burden to their destination, but what destination? And what purpose does this giant structure serve in this dreamscape? As the giant walks it creates ripples of the environments surface, like standing on water, the ripples glow a fantastic cyan and emit strange glowing particles. The dreamer looks down to see the same effect where they are standing. This all feels so right, no fear, no shock just comfort, a sense that all is well. This land is perfect. This land is home.
_______________________________________________

My entry to the CGSociety challenge themed Dreamscape, the past few challenges I haven't really been interested in, the last one I entered was Secret Agent which I had great fun participating in.
This time I threw myself even further out of my comfort zone and painted something very different from my usual stuff but I have really enjoyed it. Inspired by Greek, Aztec, and Roman statues and myths I combined an odd giant similar to Atlas, only winged and carrying a huge golden structure coated with Aztec decorations. An odd sight yet this is a Dream. The POV is also an odd one, its looking up as though through water, you can see the "surface" as the giant steps onto it, as well as the dreamer. I got this idea of a solid water surface after watching Final Fantasy Spirits Within a while ago.

Lots of great images being done for the contest so far, I'd be happy if it just gets into the runner up section hehe.

Enjoy

Her name is Shari and she's a kitsune! :D
She's on her normal form ( just one tail ). Her other form is with the 9 tails , soon you will meet her :D
I got the idea from playing Majora's Mask and meeting that cool kitsune who makes questions about the game.

Enjoy it :D

The Absolut vodka has 45% alcohol. Together with its reflection it makes 90 degrees. The right angle, as at 100 deg. Celsius it boils.

Martian colonist will need a liquid fuel for their engines. Not just for rockets, but also for internal combustion engines. Hydrogen, as a fuel, has problems.
According to NASA, “Hydrogen is a very bulky substance, requiring large tanks. The dead weight of these tanks partly offsets the high specific impulse of the hydrogen propellant.”
Also, an open container of hydrogen will boil away on Mars as surely as it does on Earth.

So, how about ethyl alcohol? It is also called ethanol, “torpedo juice”, “white lightning” or Absolut depending on its manufacturer.

It makes a good rocket fuel with a “specific impulse” of 250-270 when used with liquid oxygen. The Explorer satellite, America’s first, was put into orbit using LOX/Alcohol.

The first Martian colonist will face their own “open container law”. No, not the kind you face if pulled over by a traffic cop for drinking while driving, but a much more basic law. What they will need on Mars is a liquid fuel which can be easily stored.
Even at the low Martian atmospheric pressure of 7.8 mm of mercury (or Torr), ethanol won’t boil away if stored below –5.6 degrees C. So most of the places and most of the time on Mars, an open container of Absolut will be right where you left it. Just to be safe, don’t store it in the direct sunlight. And don’t tell your buddies where you left your stash of hooch.

Which brings us to the obvious alternative uses of ethanol: it is a good disinfectant. Still used in hospitals all over Earth. Nothing like a good alcohol-rub, either. Kills the smell of those nasty bodies and those spacesuits.
Taken externally, it cleanses the body.
Taken internally, it cleanses the mind.
Ethanol has a density of about 0.79 grams per cubic centimeter. The tankers arriving from Earth should bring tons of it. Maybe, if NASA is long-sighted, the rocket engines on those tankers will run on it. Colonists can also easily make it by fermenting waste vegetable matter.

So, Absolut has a place on Mars. Absolutely.
