Death of Ajax, 1820 Serrur
Think I’m weird, I don’t care, but when I first got my favorite stuffed tiger, I waited to give him a name because nothing came at first. But the first night I slept with him, I received his name, Ajax, which is the name of a great Greek warrior from the Iliad and Trojan War.
But here’s the crazy part. Recently in my art history class I was introduced to this painting of Ajax and I was lost for words. I swear, I know I’ve met this man before… I can’t explain the nostalgia I feel, BUT I EFFING KNOW THAT MAN!!!
I reach out for the comfort of that stuffed tiger more than any person I know. Again, think I’m crazy, but I think there’s some kind of connection here…
Eisley - “Drink the Water” (Official) (by equalvision)
Little wicked boy, come out and shake my hand;
I come from where you come from , I’ve seen what you’ve seen .
Come lay under my wing, fade into the night,
I love you, I can save you if you believe .
Drink the water from the mud little boy
Drink the water from the mud .
Tell me that you don’t belong little boy,
Tell me that you don’t belong.
Liu Jiyou (Chi-yu) is one of my favorite animal artists.
Combining western drawing and painting with Chinese calligraphic brush strokes, the looseness in his work is based on accurate observation and always finds a pose that reveals the animal’s characteristics. His compositions are very unique and interesting. He was a real master of his craft.
