Tuesday Tips - FOLDSMore on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.Norm

Survivors Speak Out is looking for submissions!
What is Survivors Speak Out? 
Survivors Speak Out is a month long event highlighting voices often not heard within the survivor community. The aim is to make a platform for people to get their voices heard and also to help other marginalized survivors to realize that they are not alone.
What is required to submit?
All submissions must come from marginalized survivors of sexual trauma. 
What does it mean to be a marginalized survivor?
While I couldn’t possibly list all the ways that one could be marginalized, I can name a few.
Survivors of Color, Disabled Survivors, Trans Survivors, Spectrum (Mogii, LGBTPQIA+, whatever your preferred word for the community is) Survivors, Male Survivors, Survivors whose assailants were women, Survivors whose assailants were other children.
and all the lovely intersections and varying identities that come along with it. This is not a checklist or a competition of ‘whose more marginalized’, as long as you fall in a marginalized community SSO will take your submission. 
Can I submit if I’m a non-marginalized Survivor? or if I’m a survivor of non-sexual trauma?
No. This event is specifically for Survivors of Sexual Trauma from marginalized communities.
While SCaR is an open place for all survivors- this particular event is not.
Why marginalized survivors of sexual trauma?
Because these voices are often ignored in favor of experiences that fit a more common narrative. In being ignored thousands of survivors are left feeling confused or like they are the only ones. While all survivors are valid, there are certain issues that some communities of survivors face more than others, as well as some completely unique struggles. Survivor Speaks Out hopes to help address some of the problems that these survivors face.
Who runs Survivors Speak Out?
While SCaR is now home to many mods of many different walks of life, SSO is run by SCaR’s founder Kris.
They are a 21 year old white non-cis disabled queer. 
What kind of Submissions is SSO taking?
This year SSO is taking submissions for these 6  categories:
1. Letter to yourself during the crisis period.
2. Letter to survivors in your marginalized community.
3. Letter to survivors who aren’t in your community. What do you wish we understood? How can we build a better support system for each other?
4. Letters to non-survivors. What do you think they need to know? Maybe you want to write it to a specific non-survivor in your life, maybe you want to write it in general, or to the ones at your school. 
5. Art. Poetry. Drawings. Pictures. Sculptures. Music. Videos. 
6. For the last option- I would like to interview some survivors who have done things in their communities. Maybe you volunteer at a shelter or for RAINN. Maybe you helped put on a domestic violence event at your college. Maybe you fundraised for the cause. Maybe you spoke at Take Back the Night.
When is SSO taking place?
The month of September this year!
When is SSO accepting submissions? How do I submit? Can I do so anonymously?
SSO will begin accepting submissions next week- starting on July 7th. It will continue to accept submissions for the rest of the month of July and for most of August.
All submissions must be in by August 25th.
You can submit either by Submitting to selfcareafterrape or by emailing selfcareafterrape@gmail.com. If you plan on submitting it straight to SCaR make sure you touch base with Kris first.
If you want it to be anonymous- that can be arranged.
Further Questions?
Can be sent to ssoquestions.tumblr.com. Any questions sent to SCaR itself will be deleted unanswered. This is to keep SCaR’s inbox from becoming flooded. The actual SSO will still take place on the main blog.

The Translucent Neo Realism of Eduardo Naranjo

He was distinguished in 1991 as “Extremadura Hoy” and the Gold Medal of Extremadura, and in 1995 was awarded the Military Cross for his contribution to the Arts and the Army.

His work is disturbing and complex. The drawing is perfect, transcendent and illusory to contribute a special light and a colorful austere… It is a metaphorical realism, fantasy and imaginative work.

Does anybody know if they ever made any progress rescuing the kidnapped girls in Nigeria? I tried googling that shit and it seemed like all sites were stuck on old news, but I found some news that are dated up to yesterday saying stuff like “Nigerian president meets parents of abducted girls for the first time” and the likes. Apparantly the girls are still gone.

They seem to have arrested some Boko Haram suspects though (emphasis on “suspects”), and Malala Yousafzai has been giving moral support.

Boko Haram have killed even more people.
