rkherman:

A different take on the typical plant cell diagram. I decided to emphasize the vast quatities of organelles inside just one cell, as opposed to most diagrams that show and label 1-2 of each organelle.

Manta ray, Manta birostris; Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Mantas have a pair of fin-like appendages on their heads which serve to funnel plankton into their mouths. Manta birostris is one of the largest fish in the sea; it can measure more than 22 feet (7m) from wingtip to wingtip by David Hall

fayren:

It’s Friday so time for a little bit of silly. I try to keep this blog for my art but occasionally we have to shake things up. Besides, what’s more artistic than Mikkelsen’s face? XD

This was a project I coordinated as a birthday gift to my sister, who happens to love sloths and coincidentally Mads Mikkelsen. I did the only logical thing and combined them with the help of many wonderful friends who pitched in. The result is hilarious and the most fun I’ve had making a gift in a long time. Some people even went on to draw SUPER CUTE illustrations of Mads with sloths, but I don’t feel comfortable posting their art so I’ll let them do that! However I had a hunch the internet would enjoy our photoshop delinquency. 

Tumblr doesn’t let me upload more than 10 images at a time but I implore you to also check out January, February, and March as well. They’re all so good. 

Thank you to bluealaris, lohkay, zimmay, finnichang, starthistle, lyndztanica, zetallis, lovemilkbun, pyawakit, akemi-k, darthbennett, and gneeworks for humoring me with this silly project.

thedragonflywarrior:

The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.
