J.C Leyendecker preliminary studies

oh oops it’s leyendecker day I guess. Wow these are great, no complaints. I love artists that can combine a realistic eye for three dimensional form with cartoonish exaggeration.

like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this

there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place

that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.

but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.

i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.

it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.

and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”

no, it’s not

it’s childish.

it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.

sooooo agree.

I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.

I find it usually does both of these things simultaneously.

WE FOUND IT.
WE FOUND BETELGEUSE FIVE.

Remember when we read about touchscreen and ebook before those things exist? Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to find myself a nice towel.

I’m sorry to burst ya’ll’s bubble but it’s not nearly as simple as that. Betelgeuse is an actual, already named star, you can’t just pick a random star you like that is the same distance away. Specifically, Betelgeuse is a well known star in the constellation Orion, it’s his, er, right or left shoulder, depending on your perspective on things (from his point of view it’d be his right shoulder). It’s around 650 ly from earth.
And, unfortunately, Doug Adams did not pick his star well, because Betelgeuse is a red supergiant, which means it has expanded from it’s original size to be absolutely enormous, and any planet that was in orbit around it has been cooked to a fine char.
Which is to say, Ford Prefect can never go home - a fact I was quite upset about when I first read the series when I was 12, already a huge astronomy geek who knew Betelgeuse’s fate.
