Jason Thielke’s work demonstrates aesthetic elements that encompass both contemporary and traditional techniques much like modern architecture. This style emerges in deeply personal, figurative works, which comfortably contrast hard lines with soft features and mixed emotions. In the past, the artist’s process of drawing, composing, and transferring images has mirrored the planning, deconstruction and reconstruction phases of urban gentrification. This new body of work utilizes that same process to negotiate the complexity of human nature.

Later works speak to Thielke’s fascination with behavioral juxtaposition within the individual. The conflict between one’s ability to implement self control and compulsion to manipulate and constantly self-gratify emerges as a reoccurring theme.

Tumblr Artist

Yoshinori Kobayashi | clipside (Japan) - 分かち合い

Yoshinori Kobayashi draws “people” mainly with a mechanical pencil. Transparent watercolor and acrylic are used for coloring, and he always keeps in mind how the pencil sketch won’t become obstructive. He wants to draw a picture that would make people want to see it again, in a comfortable line.

If you are interested at Kobayashi’s work, please visite his website, Flickr or clipside.tumblr that he updates regularly.

Egyptian Afterlife (part 2 of mummy series)

  • Egyptians believed that the afterlife was a perfect version of the Egypt they were currently in. 
  • However, to get to the afterlife, you had to pass through the Underworld, which was full of tests and trails. Eventually your heart would be weighed against a feather. If your heart weighed more, you would not be allowed into the afterlife
  • It was believed you could not enter the afterlife without your physical body. Therefore, burying someone improperly would result in eternal suffering for them
  • Famously, there was a Book of the Dead explaining all the spells needed to help a person get to the afterlife. There were over 200 spells in the book.
  • Egyptians believed that the soul was perishable, and time was of the essence in spells, burials, and other death rituals if the person was to go to the after life.
  • In order to ensure you would have what you needed in the afterlife, you were buried with your possessions. Things that could not fit into your tomb were drawn or created in miniature and then said spells over, so you could bring them.
  • The god of death, Anubis, lead you through the Underworld and weighed your heart against a feather on scales meant to represent Maat, the goddess justice.
