At St Cadoc's, Llangattock Vibon Avel, when it came to stained glass, no expense was spared.
Every window in this medieval church bursts with Victorian vibrancy, with examples from some of the very best makers of the era.

Hands up who's ready for a stained glass trip?

Charles Eamer Kempe created the window in the Rolls Chapel: a four light line-up of superstar saints. But the luminous St Michael in golden armour steals the show. His wings shimmer with peacock feathers, and a blood-red creature - half man half beast watches from his feet.

Earlier in his career, Kempe crafted an orchestra of angels to fill the double tiers of the west window. They play under starry skies with a fantasy citadel behind them.
One angel plays the triangle, an instrument first documented in the 10th century.

A #thread of some of the surreal nude photography of the great #AndreDeDienes Image
#AndreDeDienes was a Hungarian born photographer who is known for his dramatic juxtapositions and often darkly romantic themes, like this one from 1949 Image
Though his art photography was often of nude models, easily his most famous work were the photographs of a young #NormaJean, later and better known as #MarilynMonroe—who did not usually pose nude. The two would collaborate together many times over their careers. ImageImageImageImage

This gives me ideas for an eventual #art/etc. campaign I want to undertake in my town

you know, I have absolutely no idea, but if you think Ray Bradbury's The Illuminated Man, imagine how many more stories, by several orders of magnitude, you could fit on a whale if a whale got tats.
While 'video' in first tweet above is CGI, a similar effect could be achieved using drones like below, a 'body' with inner parafoils made from rip-stop nylon, & a glorified hairdryer to fill out the 'body' with warm air. Problem would be overhead lines

India's first Prime Minister famously said "Don't spare me Shankar" (a leading Indian cartoonist). But #Gandhi did not spare Shankar ;) I wrote about this in my book Caricaturing Culture.

#Gandhi tapped the power of #cartoons & #public communication early into his journalistic career in #SouthAfrica. Cartoons could be Satyagraha (truth force). His #newspaper the Indian Opinion published and interpreted British cartoons.

I just saw a comment on DriveThruRPG complaining about the price of an RPG because of its low wordcount...

Do people know how much human effort goes into even one line of rules?

[Small thread]
#gamedesign #TTRPG
Take the 800 word RPG that @OneShotRPG commissioned me to make in 1 month.

Conceptualizing alone took days.

I did 5 playtests. That’s 25-30 person-hours of work. Then feedback.

I did a bunch of pseudo-playtests, just running the ideas by folks or making math models.
I wrote 4 complete overhalls of the game. That’s like 800*4= 3200 words.

Of course, words is reductive, because you have to think about the feedback you receive, spend time making mental models, THEN figure out how to communicate that succinctly.

Lets talk about John Maynard #Keynes and his #Passion for #Art...
John Maynard #Keynes is perhaps most famous for his 1936 Magnum Opus, The General #Theory of #Employment, #Interest, and #Money in which he argued for a more active role of #FiscalPolicy in #Macroeconomic management...
It is hardly disputable that #Keynes' work, and his subsequent roles during the #BrettonWoods era marked a significant intellectual shift in the way we have come to understand #Economics as a discipline...

If you are looking for vibrant, symmetrical, larger than life artwork, head to Annada Menon's Instamojo online store.
The 27-year-old artist from Pune picked up the brush at a very young age, and there was no turning back since.

Annada creates alluring art and to make it useful for her customers, she creates them on objects of utility, like coasters and notebooks. She also customizes her #art for customers, while keeping her artistic individuality alive!

#Womenpreneurs #entrerpreneurs
She uses Instamojo to collect payments in bulk from her customers for large orders, and needless to say, we played a small role in helping Annada keep her #creativity alive whilst running a full-time #business.

It's almost New Year's, and I've pretty much finished all the art for 2019, and the decade. Below is a pretty nebula to act as a teaser of sorts.

I'll have 12 replies to this tweet featuring artworks, Going from Jan-Dec. #Artof2019 #Bestofthedecade #bestof2019

A fresh start to 2019, I kicked things off with a bang with "Inside The Eye" a recreation of a photo of Hurricane Michael's eye taken by Colt Forney.
It's by far my most popular artwork, currently not far below 1K likes last time I checked. I'll slap the link below.

Despite a lack of art due to Snowmageddon's arrival and the subsequent outdoor fun, I did make some nice stuff.

My best of this month was this amazingly detailed Galaxy.

With Christmas coming up I wanted to share this BRILLIANT #calcio book I found in Italy last month...

It’s a #comicbook style biography of Roberto #Baggio. A brilliant concept, superbly executed

A short thread of page shots with details of the illustrator & where to buy it
It covers all parts of #Baggio’s career with accompanying comic book narrative - easy enough to follow even for a non-Italian speaker!

Thread: The Mausoleum of Diocletian, constructed during the Emperor’s lifetime to house his remains after death; strategically placed at the heart of his palace-fortress in Split, Croatia, c.305 AD. #Roman #archaeology #architecture #Croatia
The first emperor to voluntarily abdicate the throne, Diocletian enjoyed a short but peaceful retirement at his purpose-built palace where he famously tended to his vegetable gardens. He died in 311 and was laid to rest in an elaborate porphyry sarcophagus in his great mausoleum.
The Emperor's remains were desecrated during invasions of the 7th century and his sarcophagus destroyed. Ironically, considering Diocletian's Christian persecutions, his mausoleum was consecrated as a Cathedral in 653; with an exquisite Romanesque style bell tower added in 1100.

1.A quick thread about General Patton’s death and the spread of Communism.
(If unfamiliar with General’s story, Ronald Regan narrates this 30 min official video about Patton’s life.)

But lets dig deeper…
2.As WWII was coming to a close General Patton wanted to continue the fight against Communism, believing he could crush the Soviets in 6 weeks. Patton believed we had not liberated Europe and had set the conditions for the Cold War.
3. General Patton was angry about the political failures of WWII. His intimate knowledge of WWII coupled with his fearlessness & popularity made him a threat to many powerful people who wanted him dead.…
