Fatma Loves to Draw!

A drawer in the virtual world, a graphic designer in "real life." In other words, being in the wrong place at the wrong time all the time.

Brrr! Young kids of Denmark’s Polar Bear Ice Swimmer Club

Just looking at these pictures will make you shiver! Photographer Daniel Hjorth, a student at the Danish School of Journalism was interning at the Danish newspaper Politiken when he was ‘assigned the task of illustrating a particularly cold and clingy winter’.
He came across members of Copenhagen’s Amager Strand Sejlinstitution’s Polar Bear Ice Swimmer Club, and ‘rather than document the entire process of the ice swim, Hjorth realized that the most descriptive representation of the experience could be captured by isolating the frozen faces of the children after they emerged from the icy waters’. Crazy? Maybe, but kids attend a big party at the end of the season and even get a diploma for their ‘courage and perseverance’.

Who am i? 

63-What hides under the spectacular oppositions is a unity of misery. Behind the masks of total choice, different forms of the same alienation confront each other, all of them built on real contradictions which are repressed. The spectacle exists in a concentrated or a diffuse form depending on the necessities of the particular stage of misery which it denies and supports. In both cases, the spectacle is nothing more than an image of happy unification surrounded by desolation and fear at the tranquil center of misery. 
Guy Debord - Society of the Spectacle

And it suddenly occurs to me that tomorrow is a work day.. I blame it on the 3 episodes of Criminal Minds I just watched. 
Good night, Mayed. Good night, Tumblr! :)

My favorite part is the dancing eyebrows. Now i wanna make more dancing eyebrows!

Finding Hope and Healing Through Art
"It wasn’t even one of the six most difficult days I had that week."
-(Michael Carini) Asked about the assault and battery
This month marks the 5th anniversary of the assault and battery that hospitalized me in April (2009) with multiple facial fractures, a concussion and severe ocular trauma. Asked why I elected not to have post trauma surgery: I want to wake up each morning, look in the mirror, and remember what I’ve lived through. Adversity serves only one purpose in my life-to illuminate the obstacles that heart and perseverance can overcome.
I found the hope and healing I needed to endure through my art. My hope now is that my experience can bring the same to someone else in need. Never underestimate the healing power of the arts. In an effort to share my story, I am currently presenting a three month solo-exhibition at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla in San Diego, CA. 
What happened to those responsible? I gave them a painting and thanked them for the inspiration.

The Disturbing Sculptures of Dongwook 
" Love Me Sweet"Arrario Gallery Seoul  samcheong, Korea 2012
Dongwook Lee’s works focus on the contradictions that are fundamentally inherent in human existence and life. Exquisitely hyper-realistic and surrealistically imagined renditions of his miniature human figures are staged in absurd situations in Lee’s works, in which the bleak everyday life transforms into poetic horror. In Lee’s work, a fragile warrior is wearing his own flesh as his armor, and the naked child stands with innocent face in front of blood-stained killing (which he might have committed). His oeuvre stands at an odd intersection of life and death, beauty and cruelty, civilization and wild, and reality and fantasy, unfolding a world of fantasy where people are severed from reality.
