One of my friends asked me about “afghans” the knitted throw, not the people. And curious to know if it originated from Afghanistan. This is what i said:

honestly i dont know

i wondered that too
bc i dont see it in afghan households
But i do remember going to joanne’s fabrics and saw this magazine entitled “afghans”
and its a photo of some caucasian woman knitting
im like, wtf is this shiet
I burst out laughing bc its such a weird situation to be in.. completely excited that there was a magazine at Joanne’s fabrics about afghans.. and then being so so confused why there were no afghans in the magazine.
hahaha ok im done…
ahem.. so according to wiki..
An afghan is a blanket, wrap, or shawl made of colored yarn. It is knitted or crocheted, often in geometric shapes. It can also be referred to as a “throw”. Afghans were first made in Afghanistan and commonly featured geometric designs with many holes in the pattern
And now I know.. and so do you! haha

Students who still have a lot ahead of them. Students like me, who still have dreams, goals, and students who still aim for achievements. But because of this tragedy, it all faded away. 

I bow and salute to the brave students who saved the lives of others and sacrificed themselves. They are heroes. They are people who deserves a lot better than awards. They deserve to be in Heaven, a place full of happiness and there will be no more sufferings. I also pray for the lives of the family and the people involved in this accident and specially the souls of these heroes.

I hope that the students who were saved by these mighty students will live their lives to the fullest, achieve their dreams and goals and love their family more. I also wish that they will live being inspired by the heroes who saved their lives. Please do so.

And for the captain, my middle finger salutes you. Live well. In guilt. Thank you.

Some work in progresseseses
Hi all!
I am doing this new thing where I’ve synced my khanart blog to my twitter and tumblr & facebook page so it’s faster to post rather than posting on each individually! It was just beginning to be too much to manage. So bear with me as I experiment and use the heck out of this feature :B
Meanwhile here are some stuff i’m currently working on!
I wanted to do a cultural piece, it was just an idea I had that I wanted to finish and make somethin’ pretty out of it! Here is a work in progress shot. I have more on my tumblr of previous work in progress, but this is just a small snapshot to highlight some detail I’ve added into the headpiece and top etc.

I’ve been wanting to also do some fanart for sailor moon and the scouts and have been sketching up a storm of thumbnails and some style sketches. I actually ended up liking this one so here’s a preview! I got tired of my old sailor moon piece and thought it was time to do a newer better and updated one! 

Aand this is the latest from my ice cream lovers painting since I haven’t updated it on my khanart.com blog, i’ll just post it here 

I’ve been mostly busy freelancing, but seeing as it’s been a bit slow this week I’ve been trying to take a crack at finishing up with my wip art. I tend to jump around bc i get bored working on something for too long, or i get stuck and need to get on a diff painting and it will eventually come to me what I was stuck on another painting and then go back.  But at the end of it ill have 3-4 new paintings/ art rather than just one!!! Sometimes I have too many ideas, and just not enough time.
but yeah UPDAAATE!

At TEDxYouth@Manchester, genetics researcher Dan Davis introduces the audience to compatibility genes — key players in our immune system’s functioning, and the reason why it’s so difficult to transplant organs from person to person: one’s compatibility genes must match another’s for a transplant to take.

To learn more about these fascinating genes, watch the whole talk here»

This is actually a fantastic part of the movie because Pixar is giving the viewers a gentle reminder of what real life is like. Accidents happen, even to good people, and you can’t make it a tragedy if you have to dip into your savings to repair the damage. You just have to keep moving forward, work hard, and hope for the best.
