Different groups of people must learn to live together. This is my Mission, to use Raava’s light spirit to guide the world toward peace.

A private commission for burlesque dancer Lily Faye and her beau. Tattoos are such a pain to draw, especially when I have to re-create actual pieces done by other artists, but so rewarding in the end!
Margaret Bowland (b.1953)
"Beauty makes sense to me, has weight for me, only when it falls from grace. It starts to matter when it carries damage. Sorrow allows it to cast a shadow. It becomes three-dimensional. It enters our world."
Margaret Bowland’s spellbinding and psychologically charged work brings viewers face to face with contentious culture while affirming the resilience and triumph of the human spirit. A masterful observer of life’s unpredictable nature, her work conveys universal themes through unusually specific insights. Bowland’s work explores the subtle and nuanced edges between strength and vulnerability, certainty and doubt, faith and disbelief. Bowland’s probing and deeply personal images call into question our societal expectations of gender, race, and beauty.

I have done many costume researches for those originals. Now my goal is to visit each country at least one time in my life! *o* Central Asia looks so beautiful!
Maybe I will do more about central Asia! Do you have any request that I should draw?
These tentacular Octopus and Giant Squid tables are the work of San Francisco-based bronze sculptor Kirk McGuire. The beautiful bronze cephalopods are so lifelike, we wouldn’t be surprised if you felt phantom tentacles tickling your ankles while sitting at either of these tables.
Visit Kirk McGuire’s website to check out his standalone bronze sculptures and more of his awesome undersea animal tables.
