These are so beautiful and so haunting and so fucked up.

oh my god i thought princess mononoke was an exaggeration

Escaped domestic pigs rapidly shift back to their hairy, tusked roots in only a couple short generations after escaping captivity. Boar with that kind of feral pig ancestry can be absolutely enormous, because the domestic pigs are bred to grow as large as possible. So you end up with animals that are meant to grow upwards of 2000 lbs in ideal situations mixing their genes in with the feral populations, creating a handful of animals with the potential to grow to bear-like proportions. Obviously hunting photos are shot as flatteringly as possible to exaggerate the size of the animal, but stories of the rare wild pigs tipping the scales in the 1000 lb range are not unheard of.

"I had a child when I was sixteen. I got kicked out of high school because of all the absences. My family and community pretty much wrote me off. But right away I got a job at a sporting goods store. Soon I was able to get a job as a receptionist at a tax company, and they gave me enough responsibilities that I learned how to do taxes. Eventually I learned enough to become an associate. Then I got offered a job at a smaller company, and even though it was a pay cut, they offered me responsibility over all the books— accounts payable, accounts receivable, everything. It was less money but I wanted that experience so I took the risk. And I’m so glad I did, because six months later, the controller of that company left and I was given that position. They told me they couldn’t officially call me the controller because I didn’t have a college degree. So I finished my degree 5 months ago— just to make it official! So after having a child at sixteen, I made it all the way to controller of a company, without even having a college degree. Can you believe that? Honestly, I’ve been waiting to tell that story so long that I told it to a customer service representative on the phone last week. She was nice about it and pretended to care."

The Aftershocks
medium.com

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!

Rebecca is amazing!
