Drugs impact every organ in the body. In this easy to read graphic, we demonstrate the impact of the most commonly abused drugs on the body’s organs and its systems.
Many people who use drugs, even if they are prescribed, are unaware of how a drug impacts the normal functioning of the body. Whether it is tranquilizers, steroids, or marijuana you can see the organs affected and read about the drug induced changes that occur within each of the body’s systems.

Dreams Of Other Worlds is a new collaborative work by Orjis and Singh speaking of serenity and escape, focused on the pleasure of making. On show at We Are But Dust & Shadow this work speaks of the mindfulness of repetition & is echoed in a collaboration with nature and the culture of the bees. As the work positions itself to reflect the words of D.K Suzuki from the book Into The light Of Things, ”To be satisfied with a little hut, a room of two or three tatami mats, like the log cabin of Thoreau”.

Whenever there is an oil spill in the world’s oceans, a sea slick is “born”. Countless animals lose their lives to the thick, clinging clutches of oil, dying miserable, wretchedly drawn-out deaths. Sea slicks are born of the lost souls of those animals and the sludge that bound and choked the life from them. As such, sea slicks are always referred to as “they” and “them” rather than “it”, and it’s said that if you chance upon a sea slick near the surface, their soft, melancholy vocalisations carry the haunting remnants of sea birds and the whispers of shoals of fish.
Despite their fearsome appearances, they are very much docile creatures, preferring to near-constantly swim through the depths and the quiet of the sea they were robbed from. Sea slicks are amortal, being unable to die, as they were never truly what we would call “alive” to begin with. Over time, however, sea slicks do disintegrate, usually over the span of several years, losing pieces of semi-sentient oil to the surface waters.
Ambitious wixes track sea slicks to gather these pieces, as they make especially valuable, durable invisibility cloaks capable of protecting wearers from even the deadliest of spells.
I love this! Modern, industrial fantasy creatures. Wow, so cool!

Featured Artist #6: Mark A. Facey
Creature Journal is the Tumblr website of the artist Mark A. Facey and was, in fact, the inspiration for me to create this Tumblr.
His beautifully coloured drawings are a mix of fantasy and science fiction and come always accompanied by descriptions of the amazing creatures he paints.
Mark has recently published a PDF book with more than 52 illustrations, many of them you can see in this photoset, with amazingly high-resolution. The most amazing though is that it is selling for only $2! I’ve got mine and I don’t regret. You can buy it directly from his website or through this link:

Dunno if anyone’s interested in these, but this was my latest assignment for CGMA’s Art of Color and Light class- this past week focused on how light interacts with different materials.
It’d be cool to try some different skin tones, I just used my own pasty hand for reference. Maybe even an alien species with non-red blood, so the occlusion shadow glows a different color where light passes through? Would it be purple for Namekians and green for Vulcans? (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧ possibilities
Also, the iridescent pearl wasn’t a requirement, but I enjoy Sailor Moon and suffering. If anyone’s got pointers on iridescence, I am all ears over here, because I clawed my way through that one screaming
