When you are an expatriate and suddenly, without looking for it you find something from your home country, that you didn’t even know you missed.

Eupatorus gracilicornis and why I’m not drawing much lately

New painting and why I’m not drawing now

It’s been awhile since my last blog post.

The last time I posted a WIP picture of a small cat drawing and well, I haven’t finished it yet. I worked a little bit more on it but I wasn’t enjoying it so much. Sometimes, when  drawing, you just can’t shake the feeling that something is not right or as you wanted it. This was one of the reasons I didn’t finished it yet.

So, to take my mind off the…

The Music Written on This Dude's Butt
Hieronymus Bosch / Garden of Earthly Delights

chaoscontrolled123:

Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.

so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell

EDIT: I still can’t believe this took off like it did this is crazy??? Just wanted to let people know that there are indeed errors in the transcription and this is indeed not a very good recording (I threw this together in like 30 minutes at 1 in the morning,) but I’m working with the music department at my college to get the transcription more accurate!

in the meantime enjoy this fantastic choral arrangement by wellmanicuredman i’m in love

A herbary is a book on plants. I always thought that such books contained drawings or paintings of plants. Until I came across this object on the website of the Bodleian Library in Oxford. Constructed around 1595, it is likely the oldest of its kind from England. The book is filled with about 300 real plants, which were gathered in Italy by a monk called Gregorio Reggio. Short descriptions accompany the specimens, which look like they were picked yesterday. Every page forever in bloom.

I had to do 3 herbary pages when I was in the University. I love these books.
