Yes, I’ve successfully converted my 相棒 into a Black Jack appreciator. Now we can fangirl together about the deep themes in this beautiful and tragic manga/anime.
Yes, I said fangirl.
Amazon Prime Air is a delivery system Amazon Inc. plans to implement into their service by the year 2015. Small packages purchased through Amazon.com will be shipped to the buyer via air drone in as little as 30 minutes.
I would order 50 books, one every minute, so then I can watch an Army of mini planes coming to my house, eventually crashing against each other.
This is strangely soothing to watch.

Thanks a lot, SCAD professors who forced me to buy Cadium Red, Lemon Yellow, and Ultramarine Blue for class.
(There is already a rebuttal post going around for this and if I can find it again then I’ll reblog it and add a link to this post, but here’s the gist of it- in my own words using my own artistic knowledge:)
I went to OP’s blog and read her defence of this infographic which almost everyone on Tumblr who has ever taken an art class in their lives is calling out as being terrible and misinformative. After seeing both sides I’m going to have to agree with the nay-sayers. My argument is this:
I don’t believe that you can apply the same rules of colour theory using CMY that you can using RYB. Red, yellow and blue are primary pigments because they cannot be created by mixing other colours, yet can be mixed together to form other hues. Cyan and magenta are not primary pigments, they can easily be recreated using red, yellow, blue and white (also a bit of green) therefore you can’t possibly refer to them as primaries or “pure” hues when they are not.
If we could have simply been using CMY all along don’t you think that somebody would have mentioned in in art school? Or, you know, ever? We’re using the exact same colours and pigments as the Great Masters and they managed to get rich, pure hues that OP seems to consider impossible to achieve with the primaries. And finally, if you’re getting muddy colours when you’re mixing pure pigments like Cadmium Red or Ultramarine Blue then you are doing something wrong.
You can see here that OP took photos comparing colour wheels between her CMY and the traditional RBY. Her CMY colour wheel is very pretty and has lots of bright hues while the traditional one seems dark (she says “muddy”) by comparison. The reason for this? Pure pigments create pure colours which tend to be dark; if you want to lighten them you add white (or other light shades). In her CMY example you can actually see that she was unable to achieve a pure red or a pure blue because those colours cannot be created. The red she got was a little bit orange and slightly tinted pink because she made it using magenta which already has blue in it. The blue she created is closer to indigo because, again, she achieved it with magenta which already has red in it. Her CMY colour wheel is, again, very pretty and it’s not exactly incorrect, but you cannot base colour theory off of it accurately. In other words, no one is ever going to teach you this in art class.
And the whole thing about CMYK and comparing printing to using actual pigments is just a load, so don’t even get me started on it.
Wait, what the fuck, pigment paints and printing ink don’t work the same. Just like how RGB and CMYK aren’t the same thing and they definitely do not work the same way.
If you’re using screenprinting inks or printing or something, yes, use CMYK. For acrylics or oils, use RYB.

Is this not the coolest thing you’ve ever seen?!
My friend Jake races with a certain dude named Eric on the CRCA CycleLife/GF Capital bike team based out of NYC. Eric (master architect and owner of some incredible bikes) went through 15 design revisions to get all the angles just so in his apartment. Note that it has bike shoe and bike kit storage spaces as well. Jake tells me I’m obliged to add that it’s a work in progress, with wood staining and bench completion to come.
I want one. Don’t you?
