Alexandra Khitrova:Fantasy Illustrations

(Alexandra Khitrova) on deviantART, on Behance,

Designer Alexandra Khitrova Discovers a New Career through Her Stunning Fantasy Concept Artby Christopher Jobson on May 17, 2014. The reaction online and off was swift, and Khitrova soon found herself working on increasingly complex drawings as she suddenly began to get commissions. Now, only a year later, she is already working with a team of writers and artists on a feature film.

2014 GRID CHALLENGE

LISTEN UP

ARE YOU AN ARTIST, AND/OR IN A FANDOM???

THEN HAVE I GOT A THING FOR YOU

                              Tumblr user ilvos01’s

                               2014 Grid Challenge

Wanna participate? Here’s how you do it.

1. Count your fandoms. That’s right, every one. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. (Or just the ones you feel like. I’m not your mom.)

2. Make your fandoms into a grid, like above, with a line connecting each one. As shown below, in my own-

3. During the month of September- (This is the fun part) write a fic or do a fanart for EVERY. SINGLE. CROSSOVER.

THAT’S RIGHT. YOU’RE GOING TO BE DOING CROSSOVERS.

THIS IS A CROSSOVER THING.

For me, that’s 21 crossovers. 21! And I even forgot to list a few of my fandoms! This is a shit-ton of crossovers and I’m going to take a while doing them. So don’t feel bad if you can’t get every single one done.

You can do fanart or mini-fics. (Or not so mini fics if you want, but fuck that I’m doing mini-fics) You can also do voice-acting or embroidery or whatever, but this is primarily for writing and drawing.

Tag it all #2014 Grid Challenge, along with whatever fandoms are in each piece. If you manage to complete your ENTIRE GRID, let me know! Shoot me an ask with a link to all of your work (in one spot, please) and I’ll post your name here, along with a cool little crown. Winners will be ordered based on how many fandoms were in their grid! (8-gridders will do 28 works, as opposed to 5-gridders, only doing ten. Makes sense, see?)

Please reblog this, and tell your friends! Or challenge your friends, insulting their honor as you take them on in a one-on-one creating death match. Just spread it around!

GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Illustrated poetry: ‘Oh rascal children of Gaza’

Rafah-born author and poet Khaled Juma wrote a heartbreaking tribute to the children of the Gaza Strip amidst the missiles striking his hometown. At least 506 Palestinian children have been killed since Israel commenced its latest invasion of Gaza on July 8, 2014

"So what did Amalfitano’s students learn? They learned to recite aloud. They memorized the two or three poems that they loved most in order to remember them and recite them at the proper times: funerals, weddings, moments of solitude. They learned that a book was a labyrinth and a desert. That there was nothing more important than ceaseless reading and traveling, perhaps one and the same thing. That when books were read, writers were released from the souls of stones, which is where they went to live after they died, and they moved into the souls of readers as if into a soft prison cell, a cell that later swelled to burst. That all writing systems are frauds. That true poetry resides between the abyss and misfortune and that the grand highway of selfless acts, of the elegance of eyes and the fate of Marcabru, passes near its abode. That the main lesson of literature was courage, a rare courage like a stone well in the middle of a lake district, like a whirlwind and a mirror. That reading wasn’t more comfortable than writing. That by reading one learned to question and remember. That memory was love."
