Another commission!  This time of John Carter.  The request was to make him smoldering, true to the book, and looking over his shoulder.  It was meant as a gift to a true John Carter fan and was not to be based on the movie depiction of the character.  I had a lot of fun imagining my own version of the character while retaining some elements of the throwback illustrations of yesteryear (looking at you, Frazetta).  If you’ve seen any of the old illustrations, you know Mr. Carter is shown wearing next to nothing, so I wanted to include a little scantily clad man flesh mixed with grit and wear and tear.  Let me know what you think!

An Indian woman, a Japanese woman, and a Syrian woman, all training to be doctors at Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia, 1880s. (Image courtesy Legacy Center, Drexel University College of Medicine Archives, Philadelphia, PA. Image #p0103) (x)

The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.
The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.
The Syrian woman is Dr. Sabat Islambooly.  Her name is spelled incorrectly on that photograph. 
For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.

six fanfictions i am currently craving: 

  • the steve rogers and bucky barnes are really mad about these newfangled bananas show, starring steve rogers and bucky barnes, who are really mad about these newfangled bananas
  • this same fic, five more times

I got three paragraphs into reading the article and never want to eat another banana again

I always think of the old Cary Grant monologue from People Will Talk: 

Sauerkraut belongs in a barrel, not a can. Our American mania for sterile packages has removed the flavor from most of our food. Butter is not served out of wooden tubs, and a whole generation thinks butter tastes like paper. There was never a perfume like an old-time grocery store. Now they smell like drugstores, which don’t even smell like drugstores anymore.

ROYAL JEWELLERY || The Rosenborg Kokoshnik Tiara

Made in the 1930’s by the Danish jeweller Dragsted, The Rosenborg Kokoshnik Tiara was acquired by Prince Viggo, Count of Rosenborg for his American-born wife, Princess Viggo. As the couple didn’t have any children, the tiara was inherited by Prince and Princess Viggo’s sister-in-law, Princess Margaretha, who in return passed it on to her daughter-in-law, Countess Ruth of Rosenborg. Following her death, it was put on an auction at Bukowskis where the estimated value was placed at more than $200.000 but it did not sell. It is modelled after the traditional Russian headdress, the kokoshnik (hence the name), and consists of garnets and diamonds.
