Art OC thread? I couldn't find any other ones.

Post any art of any form that you've made!

I'll start by posting a few photos I've taken. I posted most of these on Lainchan as well.

Happens sometimes when you corrupt images. Just open it in in paint.net or gimp and save it again. That fixes anything broken.

Post favorite paintings

My personal favorite is "Christ in the Desert" by Ivan Kramskoi, even though I'm not religious. It's strangely soothing.

There is something I find interesting about abandoned/forgotten buildings, monuments, and piles of rumble in urban settings and in the middle of nowhere. Post Structures left to decay, taken back by nature at the mercy of graffiti artist, and home to the less fortunate.

Here are some images from Bronx in the 80s after race riots.

I was obsessed with this a few years ago for some reason.

Here are two case studies I remember:

Also worth looking into: commieblocks.

It's interesting because practically every Euro country that suffered under socialism has a name for them: Panelák (Czechoslovakia), Plattenbau (East Germany), etc.

What are some cool films/short films you'd like to recommend?
I just finished watching Heart String Marionette by MdotStrange and it was amazing, I highly recommend it if you want a beautiful animation or utter mindfuck.

Millennium Actress is my favorite anime film. A lot of people say Paprika is Satoshi Kon's greatest work, and while I love that film too, in my opinion Millennium Actress' plotline is more personal and moving. On top of that the way it uses animation really shows how the medium can be used to tell stories in a way that would be hard or impossible to tell in a live action film.


I never really liked the Coen brothers, but I've only seen a few of their works.

I really love all of edgar wright's stuff, like hot fuzz and whatnot.
I just saw Dredd and jesus was it amazing. I highly reccomend it if you like action movies.


I'm a pretty avid fan of Mdot myself. Actually surprised to find him mentioned in the wild because he is still as obscure as he was 10 years ago.

Ernest et Celestine, it's a french animation movie about a bear and a little mouse that live in different and antagonistic societies but end up being friends.
The art is very pretty and the story heart-warming. I love it.

I watched John Wick recently and it was way better than I expected. The fight scenes are choreographed extremely well. If you want to basically watch an hour of Keanu Reeves being badass, it's great.

A friend of mine have been writing back and forth to one another for almost 3 years now, and for the past 6 months or so I've been using this when writing my replies. It's pretty bad, but I wanted something cheap to start on. My sister got me an ink pen as a souvenir from Venice, perhaps I'll start using that soon. I'll post a picture of that instrument in a few hours.


For some reason, it is so 1997 for me


damn, breddy good


handwritten letters are always so nice. My gf and I write them to each other from time to time. If you want to get into fountain pens check out Jinhao on ebay. For about the price of a cup of coffee you can get a pretty solid entry-level pen.

Here is that Venetian piece which I'll try to use in my next letter.

I totally agree, it's so much more personal both for me and between us. I feel like I really let loose all that I'm holding inside when I write a letter, even though I don't really consider myself a 'writer'.
I'll certainly check it out, I really want something better to use that I can still carry around easily!

Welcome to the sushigirl manga club!

The purpose of this thread and club is to get people reading and enjoying more manga, and chatting about it to too. To join in find a manga to read and take some time out to close distractions like IRC at some point each Saturday to read.

If you don't have any manga here are some masterpieces I'd recommend anyone to start off with:

Saikyou Densetsu Kurosawa - This is a fantastic story about being an outside, lacking purpose and eventually finding it.
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou - The incredibly beautiful and touching world of alpha the robot cafe owner.
Ichigo Mashimaro - A lovely relaxing story and atmosphere, lots of fun relatable characters. Just something to take it easy with.
Hi No Tori - A trancendental story from the great master Tezuka.

Do you have any manga you are reading right now?
Do you have a backlog of manga that you want to read but haven't got around to?

Useful software for reading manga offline: mcomix.

The manga is called After School of the Earth by yoshitomi akihito (known for his "weird" stories).

This looks pretty neat.


I read Punpun, it was good even though it made me feel even worse. I thought it was less about growing up and more about life being a horrible thing, no matter the age.
