Making it up as I go along.

Mapping the counties where public-school children still remain segregated.

See, the problems with maps like this is you are missing the key statistical information with regards to what percentage of the population as a whole in each area is non-white. Which isn’t to say there isn’t a problem with segregation in the US still, but these maps on their own can’t possibly give you an accurate image of it. If the majority of an area is white then it’s going to look worse regardless of the actual situation. It means you can’t tell which areas have a low non-white population and therefore the majority of schools are made up of white kids and all non-white kids are going to be in the minority and areas where you have a large population of non-whit kids who are actually segregated.

Which is to say, when you see things like this actually consider what they’re showing you, because they might not be anything more than a picture with some pretty coloured areas.

I had the night off tonight and spent it drawing character sketches of the young Beast. I love the combination of muscle and gymnastics that you get in Beast. He’s a huge amount of fun to draw.

So, you know, if Marvel decide that they need to do a young Beast solo series they should just give me a call…

Young Beast character sketches. Reblogging again because it was stupid late when I posted these last night.

Time Sale is also color blind and he works predominately in black and white, is that why you also work mostly in black and white?

No, it’s because when I do colour the technique I use (watercolours and watercolour pencils) is time consuming that I tend to not do a huge amount. I have been trying my hand at computer colouring, but I’m not exactly finding it easy.

*But* I do also tend to use much brighter reds and greens when I do use colour because it’s the duller red/orange/greens that I have trouble with.

Also I have to say I adore Sale’s colours. The blocks of black against the vivid colours always makes me feel happy.

Concentrate on the part where the lines are or are going to be. The color sort of bleeds out in a band in an cellophane overlay type deal.

Nope, still just seeing black and white (and grey).

I am slightly colourblind, but not enough that i would have thought it’d actually make a difference here though.

Not everyone sees the same color when they stare at this spinning disk.
The gif is called, “Benham’s disk" "is named after the English toymaker Charles Benham, who in 1895 sold a top painted with the pattern shown. When the disk is spun, arcs of pale color, called Fechner colors or pattern-induced flicker colors (PIFCs), are visible at different places on the disk. Not everyone sees the same colors."
"The phenomenon originates from neural activity in the retina and spatial interactions in the primary visual cortex, which plays a role in encoding low-level image features, such as edges and spatiotemporal frequency components."
Fascinating how our brains work, I see a brown tan, what do you see? :D

Light blue?

light yellow!

Kind of a pale taupe.

umm… black and white. Seriously, am I supposed to be see a colour?

They have a T-Rex skull in Bolton museum that gets dressed up for special occasions. Clearly it’s a trait of all T-Rex skeletons.

One of my favourite Disney films, and hugely under-rated all round.
