Vamp Nouveau by CindarellaPop Vamp Nouveau by CindarellaPop
For the past semester, I have been in an art history class covering the mid 1800's through the early 1900's. As such, I've had a metric asston of art nouveau (which I will never be able to spell correctly) forcibly crammed down my brain hole.

You simply cannot look at Aubrey Beardsley and Alphonse Mucha prints for an hour and a half every morning and not be influenced by them at least a little. It was a fun class, I even got to physically hold and read some of the old amtique books with the hand-stamped prints in them by Mackintosh and others. :la:
I'm truly going to miss this class. It covered what was definitely my personal favorite periods of art history.

I could have done without the research paper though.

Jules, you look good dressed up. You should dress up more often. You slovenly bastard.

I already get funny looks in my pinstripe suit though! :ohnoes:
For truth! I've had people come up and ask me why I was wearing it. I replied "Because it's spiffy."

AW THIS IS SWEET-accidental caps locks but it's ok. Mackintosh is awesome--and all those Austrian dudes too like Klimt, Josef Hoffmann, etc. Awesome :la:

A monocle would make him more respectable.

Monocles make everyone more respectable! Unless accompanied by a handlebar moustache, in which case it makes you look like an unsavory charlatan.
Maybe a drawing that didn't fail at proportions would make him more respectable too, but I'm never fond of my own work. :P

Having some humility is better than over confidence.Humility keeps you aware of your faults and helps you strive for excellence.Just know that you create some awesome characters and comics,ma'am;but that goes without saying.

Thanks,I was looking for a good animated GIF and now,it looks like I can stop changing avatars.I still can't get over how awesome "The Dark Knight"was.Christopher Nolan was truly the best(in my opinion)thing that happened for Batman at least movie wise.

I'm inclined to agree with you. It truly was a powerful film. Have you heard anything about the next Batman movie at all?

I've only heard rumors here and there that it's going to focus on the Riddler(supposedly played by Johnny Depp)and that Harley Quinn will also be one of the characters.But beyond that,I've yet to hear anything concrete about a sequel and really,it may be hard to do one when Heath Ledger did a spectacular job as the Joker(in my opinion).

Definitely. It's gonna be a really hard act to follow. Personally I'm on the fence about Depp.

Of course he looks good dressed up. EVERYONE looks better in the right hat, and this is the right hat for everyone. Now brb until this stops giving me vertigo. I'm going to Google Aubrey Beardsley and Alphonse Mucha.

Aubrey Beardsley drew a lot of porn. A LOT of porn. Like a metric fuckton of porn.

So did I. Beardsley has some really nice stuff but it's got NO SOOOOOUUUUUUUL I just wasn't feeling it. That and he was one of the major sources of competition for Arthur Rackham in the illustration business and because I have fangirl loyalty to Rackham I automatically root agaisnt Beardsley a little.

Mucha has great stuff though. Very colorful. Lots of opium.

Really, I think Mucha is a much better artist than Beardsley. I DUNNO WHAT THE AVERAGE STATE OF ART WAS BACK THEN. I NEVER TOOK ART HISTORY.

Mucha was a complete sellout in the best way. He did ads and posters for EVERYTHING. It's really easy to find some of "his" prints because they were mass produced as packaging. Most of this picture was inspired by his ad for JOB cigarette paper... which was rarely used to roll just straight tobacco if you know what I'm saying.
