"Enchanted River - Phillipines 
‘NO ONE HAS EVER REACHED ITS BOTTOM’

Enchanted River is found in the Phillipines. It is called “enchanted” because no one has ever reached its bottom. Many people, including scuba divers have tried reaching for the bottom but have failed, hence the legend of its bottomless pit. Moreover, locals share that NOBODY has been successful in catching the fish in this river, whether by hand or by spear. 
They say its bluish color is a result of its depth and the water clarity changes throughout the day. At around 12:00pm, the water becomes clearer and even more majestic.”

Buddy Nestor

Buddy Nestor was an abstract painter until a few years ago when he struck a strange new chord with portraiture that took his work to a new level. Derivative of his abstract style, Nestor’s “spiritual x-ray” portraits are intended to remove the mask of beauty to reveal darker, more honest aspects of the personalities of his subjects.

Belying his intention of removing beauty, and regardless of how uncomfortable his works are to many people, they are paradoxically comprised of pleasing shapes and muted colors, like marbleized colored plastic or objects seen through distorted glass. They are mesmerizing and even beautiful, disturbing only when their full context is realized.

The uncanny and destabilizing nature of his work is powerful.  It mesmerizes and confuses the logic of the viewer opening up cracks in the psyche.  This is one of the most important things art can do: open the mind. -

norsefire's OCs for her contest! I haven’t animated anything since some sprites for video game design projects in uni, so it was fun to make something move again, even if it’s just a small part of the image.

Norsefire’s axolotl plushies are the cutest wehhhhh
