my pixel art and other stuff: penguinchris.tumblr.com

This is my "curated content" blog which is mostly reblogs of stuff I like but occasionally some other stuff I find across the internet as well. Normally everything comes out of the queue, six posts a day, in the evening.

I have an etsy shop where I sell pins of some of my pixel art, as well as vintage women's and men's clothing - please check it out!

Quote reblogged from Explore with 623 notes

The goal is to understand your true self before launching an action plan. Deep realizations about yourself don’t come all in one sitting. Be your own ethnographer for a month. One of the people that I admire most in the world is Jane Goodall. Imagine Jane sitting in the forest, looking at those chimpanzees with compassion and curiosity. Take on her kind tone and attitude while observing yourself. Be gentle and curious but never judgmental. This is very hard for us to do because we’re always talking shit to ourselves.

Take a notebook and notice every time you get excited about something. It doesn’t have to be a big moment or work related… Just write it down each time—no judgments. What happens over the course of the month is you start seeing some patterns. It gives you a peek into your authenticity and things that energize you. When your whole body lights up with joy, it’s really trying hard to tell you something—it’s saying, “hey, this is important, please pay attention.”

[…]

You need to spend time understanding who you truly are before you forge a path. If you’re making plans based on other people’s perception of you or the perception of yourself that you want to project based on some external force, you’ll always end up in the wrong place.

Advice to those just starting out on a creative path from Sharon Ann Lee, one of the most brilliant people I know – a fine addition to our ongoing archive of life-advice.

Complement with how to find your purpose and do what you love

Apparently this is "The clearest photo of Mercury ever taken."

why isnt everyone getting so excited about this, it is literally another planet look at how beautiful it is stop what your doing and look at how alien like this planet is what is living there oh my god mercury


It’s not exactly a photograph, it’s a 3D composite made from remote-sensing/mapping data from the MESSENGER probe NASA put in orbit. Also, the colors aren’t real (look at the top for some incongruously-colored tiles) - here’s a caption from NASA:

This colorful view of Mercury was produced by using images from the color base map imaging campaign during MESSENGER’s primary mission. These colors are not what Mercury would look like to the human eye, but rather the colors enhance the chemical, mineralogical, and physical differences between the rocks that make up Mercury’s surface.

Still, absolutely astonishing and spine-tingling especially at full size.

Bad News, Beards
From The Guardian:

Hirsute men have been warned their attractiveness to potential partners may fade as facial hair becomes more prevalent, in a scenario researchers have called “peak beard”.
Research conducted by the University of NSW finds that, when people are confronted by a succession of bearded men, clean-shaven men become more attractive to them.

Another set from my senior thesis.  Sometimes you need to get away.  Far away.  BAD NEIGHBORS is my ultimate fantasy in solitude.
