I decided to act as a conservation geneticist who would classify the genetic variation of a species in the first step to preserve its diversity and components. I started by creating a matrix that would represent the red hair gene through 48 categories, each uniquely combining this feature with five more physical traits (gender, height, build, eye color and hair type). Then I set out on a journey looking for real people who could literally embody these categories. I took 204 portraits and later selected 47 of them.


As a red head this makes me sad

Professional sculptor Stefanie Rocknak beat out 265 other artists from 42 states and 13 countries to create a sculpture honoring author and poet Edgar Allan Poe that will be displayed in Boston, Poe’s birthplace. A five-member artist selection committee decided on Rocknak’s stunning work that shows Poe with a suitcase in hand and a raven in front of him.

No wonder she won, holy butts, look at that majestic creature.

Venting on tumblr bc I just tried to vent to my husband and he wasn’t having it. I think engagement parties are ridiculous and tacky. It’s like I already need to give you a gift for a shower and the actually wedding do we really need to go to another party and give you a gift. Ugh so stupid.
