5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.

Headcanon that whenever Kurogane finds his manga in a language he can’t read he doesn’t go to Syaoran for translations, he goes to Mokona and Mokona reads the manga to him because while she can’t translate words like she can speech she can still read lots and lots of languages (it’s one of Mokona’s 108 Secret Techniques!!). 

Also they totally bond over the characters and headcanons themselves. Mokona is a shipper while Kurogane likes to imagine who could kick whose ass in weird battle match up and gets super into the world building theories because he plays strategist with the characters in his head.

One of Mokona’s 108 skills is drama acting so she’d be perfect for reading it out - versus Syaoran whom Kurogane complained he reads them dull as if they are textbooks (this is canon in an omake btw).

Fai and Mokona were the first test subjects using my new Wacom Cintiq Companion tablet~
As someone who’d never owned any touchpads (fyi, I don’t even own a smartphone), the experience has been quite bewildering. I’m still getting used to it but it’s pretty fun! *3*;; So nice to do digital art NOT sitting at my desk for once…<3 It boosts my creative flow.
(I need to get a smudge guard glove though;;; )

coco chanel was a nazi

i say this with no hyperbole whatsoever

she literally worked for the nazis and benefitted from jewish shareholders in chanel being sent off to concentration camps when their share came into her possession

parisian consumers actually refused to buy a lot from her own ranges after 1940 because she was an infamous collaborator but british and american consumers kept on buying them and continue to glorify her

that’s nice
