The Remarkable Surreal Paintings of Greg ’ Craola ’ Simkins

I have become increasingly interested in the rabbit holes we fall down when daydreaming. So many have created worlds in their art in which to escape and inhabit, and for others to enjoy. We have seen glimpses of them in Narnia, Wonderland, Middle Earth, Neverland, and Hanalee. As homage to these types and shadows of other lands, I have attached the all-encompassing title, “The Outside”.  As our imagination takes over, we tend to leave what is ordinary and go outside of ourselves to visit these places. This is why I paint and what has inspired me over the years to grow as an artist. It is the constant search for what else is on the outside.

Deep sea ‘mushroom’ may be new branch of life

A mushroom-shaped sea animal discovered off the Australian coast has defied classification in the tree of life.

A team of scientists at the University of Copenhagen says the tiny organism does not fit into any of the known subdivisions of the animal kingdom.

Such a situation has occurred only a handful of times in the last 100 years.

The organisms, which were originally collected in 1986, are described in the academic journal Plos One.

"Finding something like this is extremely rare, it’s maybe only happened about four times in the last 100 years," said co-author Jorgen Olesen from the University of Copenhagen.

He told BBC News: “We think it belongs in the animal kingdom somewhere; the question is where.”

The new organisms are multicellular but mostly non-symmetrical, with a dense layer of gelatinous material between the outer skin cell and inner stomach cell layers. (more)

Here’s a simple function you can use for easing motions, just set your “time” variable to go from 0 to 1.
The ‘g’ adjusts the amount of easing.

In the animation above I used the function like this:

x = 300 * ease(time, g);

float ease(float p, float g){
  if (p < 0.5)
    return 0.5 * pow(2*p, g);
  else
    return 1 - 0.5 * pow(2*(1 - p), g);
}

Edit: the “if” statement was missing the part after ‘<’ because html ingored that character thinking it was a part of html :S

The pollinators were all over the common milkweed plants in my yard this weekend, including this honeybee (Apis mellifera). If you look closely on the largest version of the photo, you can see the milkweed pollinia (masses of pollen grains) attached to the honeybee’s back legs.
