Just some more sketches of Mary. I was trying to flesh out her outfit and design. In my earlier submission, that was my first sketch of her, and on paper it was much smaller. After that tiny sketch, I drew out a character sheet, and did these sketches after that.
Unlike most of my art, I got rid of extra facial features. She has eyes and a mouth, that’s it. She doesn’t really have ears either. Her shoes are stylized, and her legs are covered by leggings. Her sweater is a hand-me-down from an eccentric relative, and I’m thinking her ear muffs double as headphones at times.
Her color pallette is blank. She’s just a series of lines, and whatever color scheme of my water paintings, her’s will be the same. In one picture she might be a red head, the other a blond. Her sweater could be grays and greens, or rainbows and shadows.
A character I want to use for various watercolor projects. Mainly obscure stuff, and things that are pretty and simple. I call her Mary-Quite-Contrary.
Her design is based off a picture I found on tumblr, unfortunately I can’t find the tumblr post the original picture came from.
Meantime, the White House responded to an anti-CISPA petition signed by over 100,000 people with — in part — the following:
The White House issued a veto threat for the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) on April 16, because the legislation did not fully address our core concerns (especially the protection of privacy). Even though a bill went on to pass the House of Representatives and includes some important improvements over previous versions, this legislation still doesn’t adequately address our fundamental concerns…
…There is broad consensus on the need for more threat-related information sharing — including among the leading privacy advocates we regularly engage on the issue. The essential question on which people across the spectrum disagree isn’t if we can share cybersecurity information and preserve the principles of privacy and liberty that make the United States a free and open society — but how.
A secretive federal court last year approved all of the 1,856 requests to search or electronically surveil people within the United States “for foreign intelligence purposes,” the Justice Department reported this week.
The report, released Tuesday to Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader from Nevada, provides a brief glimpse into the caseload of what is known as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. None of its decisions are public.
The 2012 figures represent a 5 percent bump from the prior year, when no requests were denied either.

Actually, if you watch the behind the scenes on the Diamond Edition, Zimmer explains that the songs got very political(because africa was in a bad state at that point), and they had to make up different lyrics, fake lyrics. So, yeah… Nobody’s gonna read this are they?

This beautiful girl on the left in this picture is my baby sister. She is 14yrs old. Her name is Jamie Marie Meyers, AND SHE IS MISSING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She has been missing since Sunday, 04/21/2013. She is thought to be with her “boyfriend” whom is 18yrs old. His name is Matthew. We believe he’s convinced her to run away with him. We are terrified for her safety and it is unlike her to just leave without even a text. This girl is my life.
