What if I told you that Disney Animation just released a movie with not one, but two lead female characters who star in that movie as sisters who love and care about each other and are not “saved” by any men? And that it was a Disney Princess movie? Well, hold onto…
I saw this movie today. Went in expecting to dislike it. Instead, this turned out to be the first Disney movie I cried at in cinemas since The Lion King was released.
Winter isn’t just coming. For those of us in the Northern hemisphere, winter is already here. San Francisco-based artist and designer Krystal Higgins designed a fantastically geeky series of paper snowflakes based on the sigils for six of the noble houses from Game of Thrones. What’s more, she also created free downloadable patterns for each of them. They’re available now via Krystal’s website.

Chino Otsuka : Imagine Finding Me
Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” - via AGO
