Between Firefly and this amazing book, I may have to reconsider my everlasting hatred for the western genre…
Whatever Emma Ríos draws, whatever Kelly Sue DeConnick writes, get it. NOW.
(BTW Kelly Sue DeConninck is amazing, in case you haven´t noticed already)
PS: As some people have asked, I will make it clear, NO, this image WILL NOT be available on my print store, as it is a creator owned series.
A phenomenon known as “Psuedo-Kufic” swept across Europe in the Middle Ages and Renaissance period. European artists hoped to make Christian paintings look more refined and wealthy, so they would draw fake Arabic letters, imitating the Arabic calligraphy so popular in the Muslim world.
You may believe Dementors have no souls, and you’d be right, but not for the reason you think: Dementors are made from damned souls, the husks of the once living, those who are too sick and angry to be even ghosts. They hunger for souls the same way the starved hunger for food: to fill up that empty space inside of them, the blackness that created them, to return to the hollow womb that made them. Haven’t you ever wondered why they were so willing to guard Azkaban? After all, what other place could be a better cradle for nightmares than Azkaban?
Hans Christian Anderson had a witch for a mother, you know. She told him the original story of the Little Mermaid. Yes, the little mermaid killed the prince. Stabbed him in the heart, let his blood flow over her legs, and stumbled into the sea, smearing tendrils of his blood after her, like her hair had melted into the sand. And she got her tail back, but it wasn’t the tail she wanted. It was black, like soot, and billowed around her, mere smoke and vapors. It choked her until she could breathe no more. And she died without a soul, chained to that soullessness for eternity, and she harvested the hapless souls of the young, kissing the mouths of children who cried too much or girls who longed for men who weren’t theirs. She tried to fulfill the rest of her contract with the sea witch, to become human — to become something with a soul.
It wasn’t meant to be a story about tragic love or salvation. It was a story about despair. It was, after all, a story about Dementors.

Andrew Zo designed the Clifton engagement ring box, a unique product that not only conceals the ring in a slim, wallet-size container before the big proposal, but also unfolds to show the ring pirouetting like a blooming flower.
Holy shit. Guess I gotta marry someone now.

Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked
Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“
