Why this piece is awesome: There's a lot of delicious colorful art by ghostparachutes to love, but I picked this one because I have found so little high-quality art of Lynz. There are two pictures in the post I linked, but I especially like the portrait of Lynz playing her bass--the red bandana and matching bloody knees (and hands!), the guitar, the hair, and the dark cloudy background.

Some days we can see Venus in mid-afternoon. Then at night, stars
separated by billions of miles, light travelling years

to die in the back of an eye.

Is there a vocabulary for this—one to make dailiness amplify
and not diminish wonder?

I have been so careless with the words I already have.

I don’t remember how to say home
in my first language, or lonely, or light.

I remember only
delam barat tang shodeh, I miss you,

and shab bekheir, goodnight.

How is school going, Kaveh-joon?
Delam barat tang shodeh.

Are you still drinking?
Shab bekheir.

For so long every step I’ve taken
has been from one tongue to another.

To order the world:
I need, you need, he/she/it needs.

The rest, left to a hungry jackal
in the back of my brain.

Right now our moon looks like a pale cabbage rose.
Delam barat tang shodeh.

We are forever folding into the night.
Shab bekheir.

Why this piece is awesome: It's a cute shippy comic with pining! Specifically I love how expressive vampire!Gerard's face is, plus his tiny vampire fangs. I also like how no one's arms bend correctly, but their wavy appendages just add to the energy of the piece.

Why this piece is awesome: This is a brilliant mash-up, perfect for the character. Instead of the mask, the Winter Soldier is muzzled like Max in Fury Road, and he has Furiosa's prosthetic in place of his high tech arm. He's got this feral look, nicely emphasized by the smear of black grease framing his eye and that snarl. He looks like he's been through hell, and he's just gonna keep on going. Great piece.

Why this piece is awesome: This is a striking monochromatic portrait of early, villainous Peridot. I love the shading and the creepy hands of the Cluster in the background.

I'm reccing Bandom art this month, but my main interest is My Chemical Romance so that's mostly what I'll be reccing.

Fandom: Bandom (MCR)
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Frank Iero & Gerard Way
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: traditional (ink drawing with pencil and marker?)
Artist on DW/LJ: N/A
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] knameiess / [tumblr.com profile] jerseymisery

Why this piece is awesome: This is a delightful short fancomic depicting a scene from a fanfic ("I Have Been All Things Unholy" by Bexless). I especially like Gerard's expression of innocent friendliness and the limited color palette. The artist has illustrated several scenes from the fic with the same simple, but energetic style. (ESPECIALLY THIS ONE, sorry I couldn't choose)

Link: anyway, uh, i brought you a mattress or on tumblr

This one seems strangely relevant to our times...

Fandom: Captain America, Wonder Woman
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Steve Rogers, Wonder Woman
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: Digital drawing
Artist on DW/LJ: [deviantart.com profile] hamletroman
Artist Website/Gallery: Gallery at DeviantArt
Why this piece is awesome: The composition in this is really great. I love Steve's very determined face, getting ready to punch some Nazis. Diana is beautiful, strong, confident, and harkens back to Lynda Carter's portrayal. I also like the throwing of the tank imagery, which reminded me of that awesome moment in the Wonder Woman (2017) movie. These two make such an amazing team-up, and the artwork really does their characters justice. :)

Why this piece is awesome: Starting with the cuteness - Rocket and Groot as a baby. A nice portrait with a perky Groot and a softer than usual Rocket. I like the details, especially Rocket's fur - enlarge it for the full effect.

Hi, everyone! This month I will be reccing Captain America fanart, but with a twist - they're all crossovers with other fandoms. Hope you guys enjoy. :D

Why this piece is awesome: It's a Hogwarts Avengers AU that really captures the essence of the characters if they were teenagers in a magical high school. I love Peggy as quidditch captain, strutting that confident attitude and pre-serum Steve gazing up at her all adoring-like. Perfect. *___*

Why this piece is awesome: Steven's loneliness and fear are palpable here as he floats, stranded, in space. The starry backdrop is lovely and fits really well with the art style of the show.

Ke-Mo Village Girl

I am a Mo Village girl.
I wander, sell beer, happen to meet you.
Good jars don't mean good brew.
Clothes well-mended are better than ill-sewn.
Bad beer soon sends you home.
A torn shirt when mended will become new.

Em la con gai Ke Mo,
Em di ban ruou tinh co gap anh.
Rudu ngon chang quan be sanh,
Ao rach kheo va hon lanh vung may.
Rudu lat uong lam cung say,
Ao rach co mun, va may lay lanh.

Henry V, Act 5

"Vouchsafe to those that have not read the story,
That I may prompt them: and of such as have,
I humbly pray them to admit the excuse
Of time, of numbers and due course of things,
Which cannot in their huge and proper life
Be here presented. Now we bear the king
Toward Calais: grant him there; there seen,
Heave him away upon your winged thoughts
Athwart the sea. Behold, the English beach
Pales in the flood with men, with wives and boys,
Whose shouts and claps out-voice the deep mouth'd sea,
Which like a mighty whiffler 'fore the king
Seems to prepare his way: so let him land,
And solemnly see him set on to London.
So swift a pace hath thought that even now
You may imagine him upon Blackheath;
Where that his lords desire him to have borne
His bruised helmet and his bended sword
Before him through the city: he forbids it,
Being free from vainness and self-glorious pride;
Giving full trophy, signal and ostent
Quite from himself to God. But now behold,
In the quick forge and working-house of thought,
How London doth pour out her citizens!
The mayor and all his brethren in best sort,
Like to the senators of the antique Rome,
With the plebeians swarming at their heels,
Go forth and fetch their conquering Caesar in:
As, by a lower but loving likelihood,"
