Angles and Goddeses: The Art that is Lae Morae


Lae Morae is one of my favorite types of artists. She doesn't only just produce creative artistic pieces out of anything get her magic little fingers on, she has turned living her life into a form of art as well. Morae uses many mediums to express her special brand of creativity, from traditional mediums such as ink and acrylics to less (more?) traditional methods such as making fibers for material, movement and dance, and even using her own appearance as a creative medium.

I first became aware of Morae's special brand of creative expression while hanging around Ze Franks forum for The Show in 2006. We met on a forum thread called Picture Association, where the object was simply to to post a picture that had some sort of association to the picture posted before it. Very simple premise, extremely creative process that also helps you see similarities between other peoples world views. It was on this thread that I discovered another woman who likes showing others beautiful things as much as she likes to show off the beautiful things she can make, A kindred soul, this was certain.

Lae Morae's line drawings of beautiful women have always caught my attention. Bold bright colors, strong lines, sensuous shapely women, what's not to love? Many of her line drawings are available as prints on her Deviant Art page and more will be added soon. Morae tells me she has many more completed works that just need a little digitized attention before we can get a peek at them.

I am one of the lucky people who Morae has decided to envision in line and color. She sent me three different original drawings of her vision of Cherish Hellfire! (yay!), and they are some of my most prized possessions. Here is one of my favorites from that series.

Morae's goddess paintings, acrylic on canvas. I'm pretty sure these won't be leaving her home anytime soon, but at least she shares them here with us. It's kind of difficult to capture the warmth that a painting on canvas has through photos, but we'll do our best.

Morae has lots of other work that we could look at here, but I suggest giving yourself a nice jaunt off the beaten path and look at some of the other work she has posted around the interweb. Examples of her dress making, mad crochet skills, and photography can be found simply by googling her for a bit. You never know where it could lead you and I promise you won't be sorry.

I'll leave you with one more photo, this time, from Morae's flicker stream and it's hot enough to boil water at 100 meters, so be careful. Now you'll understand my appreciation on a whole new level.

What I saw on Mulberry Street.


Today, I installed Blipster. It's an Adobe Air app for Blip.fm.
Thin interface is rather sparse, so it need not be viewed at full-screen to use comfortable, and the sound is so much better then the web interface. Not sure why this is, but I whole-heartedly approve.

I also installed Tweet Deck and Seismic Desktop Adobe Air apps for Twitter and Facebook social networking. I spent a little time messing around with Seesmic Desktop but the UI for Tweet Deck really drew me in. Although they have many similar features, and either of them can be very useful desktop social networking tool, I simply preferred Tweet Deck because of the UI appearance options. I know that in the future, I will go with what ever app delivers font size increasing, as I have rather poor vision and hours of squinting at an interface with tiny fonts ranks right up there with chili peppers in the pee-hole, which honestly is more fun when you get to the cleaning up part.

Screen Shot of Tweet Deck spread over double 20" monitors.

I didn't include a screen shot of Seesmic Desktop as there are many to be found on the web, and my interface looks just like everyone's , since there are yet to be any appearance tweaking options.

I also installed Kosertech's ceTwit 2.1 on my HTC Touch Windows Mobile 6.1 smart-ass phone. Smart-ass, like "Yeah, but can your phone do *this*?" smart-ass. Not the best smart device by far, but it holds it's own considering it's reasonable cost.

I've tried about 6 different Twitter apps for Winmo 6.0 and 6.1, and so far this is the most stable on my device. PocketTwit is another very cool Twitter app, but has been pretty unstable on my particular device. I'll keep checking for Pocket Twit updates that will work well on my phone because that interface is very nice looking finger sliding fun.

ceTwit 2.1 is easier and more useful than 1.4. Replies, DM's, and Friends timelines all appear on the same screen and identify themselves with different colored backgrounds for each tweet type. ceTwit 1.4 required constant reloading to switch between all the message views, and that can be time consuming, which really matters when your on the run.

Stumbled onto an amazing photoblog that Coil House had linked to. Riot Clit Shave is a very eclectic photoblog that showcases many artistic, peculiar, occasionally humorous photos, though many of them are not attributed to anyone, and I'm not certain if the hostess of the blog is also one of the artists. Most of the photos posted there are SFW, but there are several that are not, depending on where you work, of course. Here are a few of my favorites from that site.

The last photo was in a Coil House post titled 'Cooler Than Us: Tibetan Nomads', and just judging from the steam-punk eye ware, I'd say that's an accurate assessment.

Good Clean Fun - HNT 4-2-09

I was having so much fun, I just couldn't stop at just one.

@PandaDementia from Creative Expression, Erotica is Thy Name inspired me to get naked, get wet, get bubbly, and record it for posterity.  It's all her fault! I was just going to make a pbj, but she had to go and plant the seeds of my undoing, or at least, the seeds of my undressing.

I really like how the bubbles end up looking like little pearls all over my body when using soft-focus in my image editor. Considering the financial climate in my purse (it's hella freezing in there) this is a suitable alternative to using actual pearls. Unless, of course, you would like to shower my wet naked body with them just for the sake of art.

One may think it takes some sort of strength to post semi-nude photos of oneself online. I must protest thoughts like this. For some, getting naked and showing off is very much a weakness. I blame society! =P
