“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”

Interesting.

also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope

the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him

but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high

and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair

what a badass

It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job

He didn’t hate his job so much as hated the people he was doing the job for.

Rebloggong because this makes for a kickass theory.

Which filter should I use?

Hey guys, I know we talk a lot about how artists working “for exposure” is pretty much bullshit, so here’s my shill for the day: This is the showcase for issue 7 of the Wyrd Daze zine. I contribute on there (I do a Douglas Adams-themed vlog called Life, The Universe, and Everything), and subscribers are how we artists get paid. So if you’d like to help out some aspiring artists of weird, unique, haunting, and beautiful art, please consider one of the many subscription options. You can see a lot of the content for free, so you don’t have to dive in without knowing what you’re getting into, but I really think a lot of you would enjoy it. So please try it out, and if you’re feeling generous, subscribe and reblog.
