This Too Shall Pass (2012) by Tomorrow Machine

Independent packaging project for perishable goods:

Is it reasonable that it takes several years for a milk carton to decompose naturally, when the milk goes sour after a week? This Too Shall Pass is a series of food packaging were the packaging has the same short life-span as the foods they contain. The package and its content is working in symbiosis.

Smoothie package
Gel of the agar agar seaweed and water are the only components used to make this package. To open it you pick the top. The package will wither at the same speed as its content. It is made for drinks that have a short life span and needs to be refrigerated, fresh juice, smoothies and cream for example.

Rice Package
Package made of biodegradable beeswax. To open it you peel it like a fruit. The package is designed to contain dry goods, for example grains and rice.

Oil package
A package made of caramelized sugar, coated with wax. To open it you crack it like an egg. When the material is cracked the wax no longer protects the sugar and the package melts when it comes in contact with water. This package is made for oil-based food.

Sailor Moon: Modern Guardians

With the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon happening, I decided to redesign the five main Sailor Scouts and give their outfits/uniforms and tailor them to fit each character a little more/be less dated. I replaced their tiaras for high-tech visors that vary slightly for each scout.  

Originally, I was going to wait to post these rough pieces once I finished the actual piece for an upcoming Sailor Moon art show I was doing but my twin brother wscottforbes wanted to post his version of it so here are mine! A rather weird style for me to draw in… I drew most of these a few months ago. Expect a better piece to be posted later in the month/August.

Awesome! I have such a special place in my heart for sailor moon redesigns.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

That bullshit heart surgery example doesn’t even make sense though, does that person think that we’re still doing heart surgery the exact same way we’ve always done heart surgery? As if medicine isn’t constantly changing and updating? Wow it’s almost like people are finding excuses to not have to think critically about the world!

You mean we don’t still take people’s brains out and rub them in salt to dispel the devil and cure headaches? I’m pretty sure that’s established medieval protocol, wouldn’t want to mix things up.

OH MY FUCKIN GOD THE MOST AMAZING THING JUST HAPPENED TO ME. I TAKE BACK ALL THE SHIT I SAID ABOUT POKEMON X / Y THIS WEEK
aaite, so: see that cutie up there??? so i’m sittin on my bus riding to work and i’d just put my 3ds away because i don’t wanna deal with a bunch of zubats this early in the morning when i look up and see this boy with HIS 3ds out! i figured he was playin Pokemon because it’s october 2013 and every person on the fuckin planet is playing this game
so i lowkey pull mine back out and send him a “Nice!” and a couple of O-Powers and he looks around all confused like “whoa what??” (keep in mind my hands are behind the seat in front of me so he can’t actually see that i’m holding a 3DS too heh heh heh)
so i’m sittin there like “hmm what can i do next” and i decide to send him a trade request. he looks around again, pulls out his stylus kinda clumsily and then HE ACCEPTS!!! so i try to trade him my gayest Pokemon (a male Roselia named ‘Roselio’) and he gives me an Oddish and OH MAN I JUST TRADED POKEMON WITH A STRANGER ON A BUS THIS IS SO FUCKING COOL
anyways after that we keep kinda sendin each other O-powers for a while (he still doesn’t know who/where i am) and then after a couple minutes he challenges me to a BATTLE!!!! i accept ofc
we have this a quick sorta awkward battle where he only chose 3 pokemon but i chose 6 but it doesn’t matter because his Braixen is kicking the shit out of everything i toss out. after my Farfetch’d and Plusle both faint i realize that oh frick i’m like three stops away from the bus stop i get off on!
right as i realize that, he suddenly forfeits the battle. i look up at him and he’s puttin away his headphones like he’s about to get off! wahhh
i look down at my DS and it’s like “do you wanna add trainer Matt as a friend?” and i frantically scramble to hit yes but right as i do i look up and he shut his DS and is getting off the bus
before i know it he’s gone and my DS is just sittin here like this:

i’m pretty sure this is the most romantic thing that has ever happened to me. goodbye Pokemon trainer Matt i will take very good care of your Oddish and u will be in my heart forever my dude
