b/g - in the library

i now have a problem

and that problem is that i really want to make graphics, but i don't have time because i have to do homework.  and write a research statement. and form my committee. and possibly go out for drinks tonight.  and definitely walk the dog.

now, about school, i am being good and doing art history reading.  see:
To an artist, a picture is both a sum of ideas and a blurry memory of "pushing paint," breathing fumes, dripping oils and wiping brushes, smearing and diluting and mixing. Bleary preverbal thoughts are intermixed with the namable concepts, figures and forms that are being represented. The material memories are not usually part of what is said about a picture, and that is a fault in interpretation because every painting captures a certain resistance of paint, a prodding gesture of the brush, a speed and insistence in the face of mindless matter: and it does so at the same moment, and in the same thought, as it captures the expression of a face.
[ What Painting Is, James Elkins, 3 ]

isn't that kind of beautiful?

And finally, I just threw this up on Tumblr, but here are my current 10 favorite ships....
  1. Mike/Harvey - Suits
  2. Erik/Charles - XMen First Class
  3. Adam/Kris - AI S8 RPS
  4. Giles/Xander - Btvs
  5. Xander/Spike - Btvs
  6. Arthur/Merlin - Merlin
  7. John/Sherlock - Sherlock (BBC)
  8. Harry/Draco - Harry Potter
  9. Clark/Lex - Smallville
  10. Spike/Faith - Btvs

(ok, by 'favorite' i mean stuff that i'm super excited to read right now, and if i saw a fic posted about these ships i would totally attempt to ignore homework to read them).  WEIRD. Collapse )

this borderline incoherent post brought to you by the fact that i should be reading more art history and i'm going back to it, right now, really, i am, i am!
