"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"
"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician." - Source
YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD.
WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?
you know damn well why
I did these twin pieces to illustrate a short tale by Tullio Avoledo in Wired Italy. It is a special number with a number of science-fiction stories, a sort of hommage to the Amazing Stories magazine.
The story is about a portrait of Saint Thomas Becket from the Renaissance which is found to hide and older, mysterious picture below. This second picture is only visible when looking at the canvas under a special light. It is confirmed that it dates from the XVI century, and it is the portrait of a WWII german soldier.
Thank god for time travel.

Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.
How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!

My favorite Benedict Cumberbatch role - The Creature from Frankenstein
It’s playing around the world again this October so if you haven’t seen it, or have only seen the Victor!batch version, I would highly recommended trying to see it. I liked him before I saw this but this performance truly changed my perceptions of theater and acting altogether, and aside from still having a big gross crush on him I respect him immensely.
I painted this JUST IN CASE we happened to run across him at SDCC (which was unlikely, but hey, wishful thinking) and also because I really wanted to paint the creature again, I love the design of the character a lot.
I’m not really satisfied with it but maybe I’ll revisit it in a few years when my skill level (hopefully) increases :))
I’ll be travelling for a bit starting tomorrow.
See you in a week or so!
