This week: the Superhero & Comics Edition!

  • Sarah Michelle Gellar is finally on twitter. That’s it, that’s the feature. (If I were to ramble on about the many reasons why this is a big deal to me, this would be a much longer post. I mean, I wrote about Buffy in my undergraduate thesis, so my flailing should not be a surprise.)
  • I like to believe that in a parallel universe (or at least one of them) the other me is a comic book author and artist, but now that the Masters of Anatomy Kickstarter is launching next week–October 11th! – I may have to take my drawing dreams a bit more seriously. From the book’s official site:

    Master of Anatomy: The Ideal Male and Female, is a one-of-a-kind collection of artistic anatomy bringing together the work of 64 artists from different industries. Each artist recreates the Ideal Male and Female illustrated in their own signature style and without the aid of external reference. Each angle is neutral, symmetrical and unposed showing the front, side and 3/4 front angles in a classic animation turn-around. The goal: to translate a decades-old sketch into something more relevant to a modern aesthetic. The result is a volume unlike anything that exists today. A must have for any aspiring artist; digital or traditional.

  • Speaking of comic book creators who are living their dreams, the lovely ladies from Little Foolery announced their newest release for sale, That Which Wills: Virgo Rising. Astrology, magic, stellar storytelling and gorgeous art? Yes please!
  • Not that there was any doubt as to how perfect Lynda Carter was as Wonder Woman, a recent interview proves that she understands the character far more than most of the people at the top of television and movie industry.
  • Although there’s no new official live-action incarnation of Wonder Woman, unofficially there most certainly is, thanks to Rainfall Films. Badass unicorn Rileah Vanderbilt successfully embodies the character’s strength, grace, and spirit of sisterhood.

This week I’ve seem to lean towards healthy living. Then again, I should always do this, huh?

  • The Kickstarter Project, “Set Chopin Free,” aims to free Chopin’s music from the chains of copyrights. Music for all! (Re: the unofficial theme, I hope I don’t have to tell anyone how important music is for one’s health. ♥)
  • Isabel will be running “Coast-to-Coast” next year! I’m no runner, so I’m always awe-struck by people who can do marathons.
  • Yoga is more my style and if you’re in the market for a new mat, Magic Carpet Yoga Mats is the way to go. I’m in love with these colorways:

It’s been far too long since I’ve shared a list of amazing finds.

  • One of my absolute favorite fashion lines, Locher’s will be releasing a new clothing line on September 3rd! Sassy and snarky sayings within gorgeous embroidery? Yes please!
  • Here’s another refreshing take on a classic: a Choose Your Own Adventure version of Hamlet entitled… wait for it… To Be Or Not To Be. And it’s illustrated by Kate Beaton. It just keeps getting better.
  • This exploration of how artist/illustrator/designer Jon Contino developed his brand identity is fascinating.
  • JustDelete.Me is a comprehensive directory of websites with links on, you guessed it, how to delete your account from them. Not only is it incredibly helpful, but it’s fascinating to see what sites are impossibly and/or difficult to get out of (Pinterest?!).
  • Black Milk Clothing is releasing a Harry Potter collection on September 10th. You can bet I am freaking out. !!!
  • Which house do you belong in? [x]

  • In other geek fashion news, Espionage Cosmetics is Kickstarting their line of Nail Wraps. As someone who has yet to master nail polish applications, this is a godsend. A beautifully geeky godsend. So say we all!
