An Awesome Artist Turns Photographs Of Strangers Into Amazing Anime Drawings.

Robert DeJesus is an amazing anime artist. For those not familiar, anime is a style art of popularized by Japanese cartoons. DeJesus is not one to keep his anime drawing skills to himself, and has an entire YouTube channel dedicated to teaching his drawing methods.

Some of his coolest works are the commissions he does for fans who send in pictures of themselves. He takes ordinary photographs and turns them into anime masterpieces. Just wait until you see these. Just wow, especially #13.

1.) What animal is that?

2.) He even got the detail on the flower right.

3.) “Meow, and bow before me!”

4.) “How did you get up there?”

5.) Dr. Who style.

6.) Ordinary selfie, turned extraordinary.

7.) Where can I get one of those hats?

8.) Nice piercings.

9.) Don’t take life too seriously, alright?

10.) Ready for medical school.

11.) Lounging around.

12.) Hardcore runner, ready to take on the world.

13.) Nice bit of gothic going on.

14.) Unbelievably cute.

15.) I wonder what this piece would look like with some color added.

16.) A basket of bunnies.

17.) I can’t get over the detail in these drawings. They’re amazing.

18.) Hanging out with the cat.

19.) This hair on this one must have taken quite some time.

20.) Hanging out with my mini-snowman.

21.) I love that hat.

22.) Cosplayer at her finest.

23.) Such great line detail on the hair.

24.) I’m not sure that smile is wide enough.

25.) Yes, I am also suspicious of all things.

26.) The drawn hat looks better than the real life one.

27.) That cat just looks angry.

28.) Swing, swing, swing.

29.) “This is my buddy. He’s really cool.”

Yay, feminism! Amanda Marcotte thinks ‘Ho-surance’ ad is ‘cute’

http://twitter.com/#!/Alyssafarah/status/401385656691081216

Hey, why can’t it be both?

No, really. Amanda Marcotte, who somehow manages to call herself a feminist with a straight face, has totally embraced that degrading Obamacare ad featuring “hot to trot” Susie and Nate. Because nothing says “girl power” like suggesting that women only think with their lady parts.

Here’s a just taste of Marcotte’s wisdom:

It’s a cute ad drawing attention to the fact that health insurance is required to cover contraception now. Of course, it’s also an ad that makes the apparently controversial observation that women might feel sexual desire like they’re people, so naturally, conservatives are up in arms.

The whining from the right shows why the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative and Progress Now were smart to run such a blunt ad highlighting the birth control benefit. Women do use birth control to have sex without getting pregnant, and if pro-choicers dance around that fact or employ euphemism to discuss it, it lends credence to the notion that there is something shameful about it. Being direct about sex provoked conservatives to once again reignite a no doubt doomed campaign to stigmatize contraception, making the right look like a radical fringe completely out of step with mainstream America.

Nice try, sweetheart. But it isn’t Republicans who are obsessed with sex and painting women as “hos.” Progressives built that all on their own.

Sounds like a safe bet. It’s time for liberals to stop making excuses when they do something stupid.
