Welcome to my blog! you can call me Chichi unless you know me in real life! I am a Student at a local community college for now and will be doing alot of school work so you may not see my blog update alot because of that~
Currently i am obsessed with:
SNK (Attack on Titian)
some other things that i dont know what they are but i like the art! i just Re-blog things that catch my attention~
You also may see a bunch of Cosplays, some sewing tips and a few other DIY's along with Plenty of music to listen too!
Also the link below is a link to my bff's page! go follow her!!
My college did this thing today where they laid out the backpacks of students who have committed suicide. This is just a small portion of some of them. On top of the backpacks was a brief summary of who they were. Some backpacks even had things in them that bypassers could look at. Don’t ignore the signs of others.
I’m so honored to say that I drew today’s Google doodle of Maria Callas, the renowned opera singer!
I’m happy to share some of the process—the whole thing took place in these last couple weeks and was a lot like doing any other freelance illustration job, except it was totally unexpected and for a much bigger audience!!!
My art director was the super talented Sophia Foster-Dimino (also a Google doodler)—she also gathered feedback for me from the doodler crew & google employees. When you’re working with a big company, there’s a lot of people that have to vet the final product! Luckily it all went very smoothly.
When I was given this project I didn’t have A CLUE about opera, so I spent a whole day reading about Maria Callas, listening to her existing recordings, and watching the few live videos of her performances. She is amazing! Her voice extended beyond the regular range for female singers and she had an innate gift for interpretation—she could literally sing anything written for the female voice, and sing it better than anyone else. She also had a really interesting life—Underdog beginning! Personal struggles! High-profile scandal! Crazy weight-loss! Unusual voice!
I included more info about each step of my process in the image captions— read on if you like!
Thanks to all the google doodlers for letting me be an honorary doodler today, and thanks to everyone who’s said something encouraging or recognized my work, I’m incredibly humbled and grateful to you all!
Awesome protests erupted in my school today. Our student council planned a “fun” game for valentines day. They handed out paper hearts to every girl at the beginning of the day. Only the girls. If a girl speaks to a guy through the duration of the day, she has to give him her heart. Guys get five raffle tickets for every heart they collect. Girls cannot collect hearts, they only have one to give away, and guys do not have to give away anything. A gay male asked for a heart to give away to participate and was told no.
Some girls have taken this as an invitation to say things such as, quoted from twitter, “keeping the whores from talking today haha.” And boasting about “keeping their heart and not being a whore.” This has turned into an excuse to shame each other for talking to guys. And for what? A valentines game?
Rather than writing their names on the hearts and giving them away, many girls have written notes of protest on the paper hearts and are wearing them proudly as they associate with whoever they please and refuse to give the heart away.
Proud of some of the people in my school today.
males are rewarded for collecting female “hearts” and are encouraged to collect as many as they possibly can, but females are only allowed to have one heart to give away, and when they give it away they’re not allowed to play anymore
the correlation of “hearts” to how virginity/sex is treated in society is kind of eerie and definitely sexist
This is a really big deal! My elementary had us do this for Valentine’s Day one year. Girls were given a prize if they kept theirs, boys were given a prize if they got one. The boys would harass us - verbally, getting into our personal space, or pulling our hair - until we told them to stop and then they would get to take the heart. A lot of us were pretty mad about it at the time, and now that I see the implications of it, I’m even angrier.
ALL THIS COMMENTARY AND ALSO SOMEONE GIVE THESE KIDS A METAL
