I did props for this show!
A masshole born and raised; this is my blog.
I'm an artist, and am currently studying for a BFA in set design and scene painting far far away from home. I love humor, good art, criminal minds, and jazz.

No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.
