I have wanted to make an animated illustration since, about, a million years ago.
Hey, wow, this is my 7,777th post.
Done in Manga Studio 5 & Photoshop CS3
Took so many hours.
Mika Aoki ’ Singing Glass ‘
Japanese artist Mika Aoki embraces the dichotomous nature of glass’s solidity yet fragility. She says of the translucent material: “Unless light shines on it, we can’t confirm the existence of it because it is transparent. But once the light shines on it, glass truly emanates a special presence.” In her series of works titled Singing Glass, the artist presents glass morphed into amoebic and otherworldly forms that leaves the viewer mesmerized. In any other medium, the pieces would lose their intrigue.
Looking through the sculptor’s portfolio, there is a surreal mix of science gone awry and fairy tale-like icy enchantment. In a number of her works, there are glass creatures and abstract figures encased within glass containers, like lab experiments. Because of the dual layers of clear elements, some of the structures within actually look like more like water bubbles. The other pieces that are not trapped within clear encasements, they echo the luminosity and sharp crystallization of ice.

white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
i think you just described yourself…..the irony
Actually she did not . Dressing in Japanese fashion is different than treating Japanese people as props . Go learn irony
enjoying japanese fashion = / = appropriating and sexualizing kimonos, saying I’d like to flay japanese people and wear their skin as a fashion accesory, treating japanese girls like submissive cloned props who I also shut up and do not allow to speak while I’m in the front, reducing the culture of those very girls to cupcakes and hello kitty as if they couldn’t possibly represent their own culture good enough themselves.
also I think you confuse me with somebody else because I’ve never even been to America so how in the name of sweet baby jesus can I be a white woman of hollywood? ? ?
tldr: wearing a pink wig and enjoying japanese pop fashion culture is not the same as parading around in costumized, sexualized kimonos with a bunch of asian girls following me because they’d make cute accessories
