Image of the Day

A link to the talented Sheharzad Arshad's work over at Deviant Art... a site that should be supported. It's tough being an artist out there - I know, I've had a few on payroll from time to time - and they struggle so hard to balance that creative need with the whole 'i have to eat' thing. It's that reason I push for things like Cosanti wind chimes for xmas and bought several hand painted Thankga from India. Artists get so little support these days - it's really important to put money into community theatre, high school drama clubs, and these sorts of cottage sites, because otherwise they'll end up in jobs they hate, spend the rest of their lives inking people, or making fan-service heavy anime in some sleazy low-light backroom.
