Reblogging this not only for artists but also for people who write werewolf (and other animal transformation) fiction.  If a human turned into a wolf, their knee joints would not reverse— what some fic writers mistake for the knee is actually the ankle.  A wolf’s hind feet are relatively long, and they are always walking in way roughly analogous to human “tip-toeing.”

For anyone curious, the artist is Marshall Vandruff and he has a free webinar up on Imaginarium as well as dvds from Gnomon Workshop!

I moved home this summer to live with my parents due to financial difficulty, and they’ve given me the go ahead to rip up their backyard in the spring to start growing food for our friends and family. I’m turning the swing set my younger brother and sister have outgrown into a trellis of sorts, making a huge wire fence arch over the beams that supported the swings and monkey bars. I need lots of vines to fill this huge space! Very excited to learn and teach my family more about growing plants for our dinner table.

A gallery with no sculptures, only a cloud floating within the space. ‘Nimbus’ is a new installation of Amsterdam-based artist Berndnaut Smilde, who refuses to explain how he managed to create a real cloud.

I need help naming my cat.

I need help naming my cat.

Professionalism is a funny term, because it masquerades as neutral despite being loaded with immense oppression. As a concept, professionalism is racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, classist, imperialist and so much more — and yet people act like professionalism is non-political. Bosses across the country constantly tell their employees to ‘act professionally’ without a second thought. Wear a garment that represents your non-Western culture to work? Your boss may tell you it’s unprofessional. Wear your hair in braids or dreadlocks instead of straightened? That’s probably unprofessional too. Wear shoes that are slightly scuffed because you can’t yet afford new ones? People may not think you’re being professional either.

are your boobs so big and heavy that wearing a bra for a 7 hour shift gives you chronic back pain? too bad, not wearing a bra to work is unprofessional.
