When I post something that I have originally made it'll be mentioned - mainly I post my artsy stuff in my art blog.

Messy bunch of reblogs contain e.g. art I find impressive, beautiful or interesting, photography, animals of many sort (especially cats!), overall things I find cute, gaming related posts, tattoos, nail art, and fandoms including Assassin's Creed, Pacific Rim, Shingeki no Kyojin, Disney, Ghibli, Pokémon, Mass Effect and Adventure Time, to name a few. You never know.

I by myself am doing this and that. Art doodles, handcrafts, glass work, cosplay, gaming, roleplaying, list goes on. I'm a young woman in my 20s living in Tampere, Finland, and study in Tampere University of Applied Sciences' Degree Programme in Media (an English interactive media program). My dearest dream in the moment is to own a cat. *u*

Ask me stuff!

Dragon 2 sketches!
Back in 2010 when the first movie came out, I was OBSESSED with their racehorse type of riding, the character design, the mechanics of the saddle, EVERYTHING. I wrote entire essays on livejournal including ‘studies’, and harassed the designer of the saddle for answers on deviantart.
I’ve always had an interest in character design and feature animation, but looking back, this movie really sparked something serious in me. Dreamworks studio seemed further away than the moon (still does) but for the first time I felt like looking in the kitchen and actually understanding what was going on. 
By then I was in the final stage of med school and didn’t entertain any serious ambitions towards design. But I remember the immense joy this movie and my new discoveries gave me, purely as a hobby.
Never in a million years would my clumsy younger self have guessed that by 2014 I’d be a full-time character designer in a city halfway across the world, sitting in a cinema in Vancouver to watch the sequel. 
In short: I owe a LOT to the people behind these films. Thank you.

mediamattersforamerica:

"Let men be men": Fox hosts eagerly agreed with the NY Post article that claimed “catcalls are flattering.” 

A few more gems from this segment

  • "They mean it in a nice way."
  • "It’s nice to get compliments."
  • "As long as you don’t come within arms length, it’s fine."

But for many women, catcalls are humiliating and degrading. Some blame themselves, wondering what they could have done differently to prevent it. And the consequences can considerably affect a person’s social behavior and habits, as women report they avoid eye contact and walking alone in public, or change their outfits or routes to avoid harassment.”  

In reality, this is no small problem. According to Stop Street Harassment, “at least 65% of women have experienced catcalls, leers, and unwanted sexual propositions,” disproportionately affecting those with low incomes, women of color, and the LGBTQ community. And while there are federal laws protecting women from workplace harassment, street harassment is addressed on a state-by-state basis.

Let’s bring some voices of reason into this discussion:

Natalie DiBlasio, USA TODAY:

Catcalling does not mean you are beautiful, smart, strong or interesting. Catcalling means a stranger values you so little he doesn’t care if he makes you feel uncomfortable or threatened.

Margaret Eby, Brooklyn Magazine:

Catcalling is about control, not about your cute shorts. It’s an assertion that women are just visitors in a male space, there to be assessed by appearance and summarily dismissed or flirted with.

Ashley Ross, TIME:

To legitimize catcalling is to give voice to those who don’t deserve it: the man who told me he wanted to perform oral sex on me, the man who said he wanted it the other way around and the man who said he could have me if he wanted me.

The dehumanizing culture of catcalling must stop, but conservative media outlets like Fox aren’t helping. It’s up to us all to educate ourselves about the harms of harassment, so that women can truly be free in the streets of America.

How to Prepare Tofu

garden-of-vegan:

There are so many ways to prepare tofu, but these are the methods I generally use:

Lazy Method: (I almost always do it this way for salads)
Cut up block of tofu, pat it with paper towel to absorb excess water. Brown tofu on high heat in a small amount of vegetable oil. Add a few dashes of soy sauce, and remove from heat once the soy sauce is absorbed. (if you’re using spices, add them while the tofu is still on the soft side)

Not Lazy Method:
Draining tofu makes a firmer texture, and any flavours you use will soak right into the tofu.
To drain tofu:
1. Place your tofu on a few layers of paper towel.
2. Put a few more layers of paper towel over the tofu and cover with a level, heavy object on top.
3. Let it sit for half an hour, flip the block over (refresh the paper towel if you need to) and leave for another half hour.
4. Now you can marinate, 1 hour will make flavourful tofu.

Here’s 2 good marinade recipes, they’re both from Vegan with a Vengeance, they’re very adaptable to whatever ingredients you have on hand.

Italian Tofu
Serves 2-4

1 lb extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed
1/2 cup white cooking wine (or vegetable broth)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, mashed
a big pinch each of basil, marjoram, and thyme

Asian Tofu
Serves 2-4

1 lb extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed
1/2 cup mirin (or vegetable broth)
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tsp Asian chile sauce
1 inch chunk ginger, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, smashed

Mix ingredients in a shallow dish and marinate tofu for 1 hour.

Saute: Brown tofu over medium-high in a frying pan.
Bake: Preheat oven to 400F, place tofu on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Flip over and bake for another 10. Place under broiler for 1-3 minutes.
Or grill it, 5 minutes on each side, giving each piece and 90 degree turn halfway through to create a cross hatch pattern.

My Guide to Cooking Amazing Tofu
As a single ingredient, tofu has a lot to offer and it’s worth learning how to cook it well. I’ve gathered together all of my tofu recipes, tutorials, tips, and tricks together into this all-inclusive tofu resource.  You’ll be enjoying amazing tofu dishes in no time!
Why do you need to learn how to cook tofu?
It’s high in protein (13g/serving)
A source of calcium and iron
Mild in flavour making it ideal for marinades
Versatile – it can be baked, sautéed, fried, grilled, you name it!
Quick and easy to prepare – it can be flavoured and prepared in as little as 10 minutes
Very cost effective, 1 block ($2.27) = 4 servings ($0.57/serving)
Tofu has some awesome health benefits too! Studies have shown that eating tofu can help to lower bad cholesterol, and 25g of soy protein per day may reduce the risk of heart disease (in combination with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.) Check the label and look for non-GMO tofu.
