Gustave Caillebotte - The Floor Scrapers (1875-6)

Original on top, later version below

"Despite the effort Caillebotte put into the painting, it was rejected by France’s most prestigious art exhibition, The Salon, in 1875. The depiction of working-class people in their trade, not fully clothed, shocked the jurors and was deemed a ‘vulgar subject matter.’ 

The images of the floor scrapers came to be associated with Degas’s paintings of washerwomen, also presented at the same exhibition and similarly scorned as ‘vulgar’”.

I’m actually still doing a lot of editorial work, I just keep forgetting to upload any of it! Here’s a comic I did for the New York Times Private Lives column back in July, thanks to AD Nathan Huang. I’ll upload more pieces later!

Crystal geometry

The moment any sort of development is imposed onto this formless matter it begins to enter the realm of substance, organization, and material.
Tooling is about what rules exist within this hypothetical “pre-material” state that influence its movement into the realm of the material. [..] the source of wonder behind one crystal is not the storm it came from but rather the elusive internal logic that remains resolute and unmoving through all crystals.
