Background information on this Chai recipe
If you let the tea leaves boil in the water/milk mixture, like it is all too often done in India, the tea becomes much more difficult to digest because tannins are released from the tea.

they are ugly and awfully well done. I found them a while ago while looking for some info about dolfies. I visited the site with very Polish name “Kostnice” (Morgues) but I had no idea that there is many artists in Japan who make necro nymphs.
the main inspiration are the coffin portraits of the dead children which were popular in 19th century.

Courtney Brim’s illustrations evoke the memories from childhood but not only these colorful and lovely but also these which thought you that not everything in this world is peaceful and friendly.
her drawings remind me of Alice in the Wonderland before Disney turns it into the shallow cartoon.
Courtney creates from the memories of childhood a world of disturbing mysteries.
I met Stella’s art quite long time ago. they amazed me with delicate but strong lines of female’s siluette. The very first art which I saw was an oil painting which still remainds me of Toulouse-Lautrec’s Divan Japonais. I like the way she paints the emotional side of woman being which is hidden and uncover at the same time.
Artist statement from Memento Mori: The process of creating a painting is what intrigues me most, like finding pieces of a puzzle. The figures (women) in my paintings are a vessel through which I can connect with the world. The unseen moments, the unspoken words, the indescribable emotions that permeate much of our lives… those are the elements I try to capture and represent through the figures in my work.
I’ve been thinking who nowadays is the best fashion and celebrity photographer. Many would point at Annie Leibovitz but for me her works are one-dimensional. This thing which is missing in her art I can easily find in Miles Aldridge’s photos. Full of passion, erotic tension and pop-artish, vivid colours constitute temporariness of the fashion world.
