Glitter all the way! ;P

Love your art analysis (props to Angie for uploading the vid!) and I look forward to keep learning from you about visuals. I absolutely suck at everything visual so your analysis is very enlightening <3

I'd say no glitter! The tones are already great.

I found The Forgery Show and the whole idea to learn by forging the masters intriguing. It probably build off a great base and then you can start experimenting and finding your own voice, right? Just like writing and that exercise we did in WOP to "imitate then innovate" great novelists.

Not the same kind of forgery, but it also made me think of this documentary: https://www.amazon.com/Beltracchi-Art-Forgery-Wolfgang/dp/B017QGUZ5U

Haha have you seen it? It's crazy to know how he accomplished to do the fake ones.

Great you found the 80-20 of doing the threads! I'm looking for that with every tweet and up not tweeting anything πŸ˜‚

Ok no glitter then! Maybe a glossy varnish?

Woah I have not seen this but I'm definitely going to! This is so fascinating. He didn't forge existing art, but made up new art in the style of historic artists?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! That's so wild!!!!

Also, his studio looks incredible: https://screenshot-media.com/the-future/trends/wolfgang-beltracchi-nft/

HAHA i feel like the threads are still taking too long... I recommend NOT spending 3 hours on them haha what about a photo thread walking around Japan?? 🧐

Haha I vote yes to glossy varnish!

Yes! It's crazy!! He would go to markets to buy old frames, put dirt on them, use special ovens... very interesting. And wow! The studio does look amazing!!

Hahaha thank you for the recommendation! And that's a good idea! Will think of something around that πŸ€” making sure it doesn't take me 3 hours πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ thank you!!

My dearest favorite YouTube Star Elizabeth Edwards,

I will be going to work on designing those Zoom filters, creating my own Zoom, and I will get you that $2,000.00 Disco Ball II. COMING RIGHT UP.

β€œWant to try this out yourself?” Hell yeah I do. Maybe I will. Maybe I will paint the disco ball of my dreams. Maybe I will paint a human sized disco ball. Maybe I will become a disco ball.

I’m kinda obsessed with the disco ball dividers actually. It’s a genius touch. They’re so much fun, there should be disco balls in every issue. When I close my eyes to sleep tonight, I will dream of these disco ball dividers.

I love your art analysis<3

I’m excited to check this one, Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum is so enchanting.

I’mma go and admire your thread.

And I’m so happy you’re cutting back on overthinking the diagrams, you always do solid work no matter what. We must both use our pure fresh brains for good, not for overthinking!!

I like the temporary vegan journey and this Sweet Chili Lime Tofu sounds SO good.

Do you think you can build a lil twiggy donut out of these tofu bricks? I think so. Impeccable tofu diagrams. 10/10

OooOOoowweeeeeOOOOOOhhh kiiiiiilllllllerrrr Tofuuuuu 🎢🀘🏻

TDB makes me smile. πŸ₯² <-

Thank you for being the #1 fan hehe

I'm excited for your journey as a Zoom filter creator! I can see you taking over the world - first the filters, then your very own Zoom 2.0, and then you can get ALLLLLLL the disco balls! I want to see them ALL hung up in your background haha

Ooo I'm resonating with you becoming a disco ball. Where would be your ideal forever home as a disco ball? What type of place would you like to glitterize with your sunlight? I'm picturing a cute cafe that plays ONLY Sunday Candy playlists OR suspended from a tree branch hanging over a park bench?

Thank you for reading my twitter thread <3

YES lets make an official pact to keep our brains fresh and tender: No Overthinking Ever Again!

And yes, we can totally make a twiggy lil donut out of these tofu bricks. If we cut the tofu into thin sticks, then dry fry them, they'll be firm and structurally stable, like Utz Potato Stix (do you like those? I loved them growing up lol), perfect for making twiggy lil donuts!

LMK if you make the tofu =)

Thanks again for the addition of Killer Tofu <3 its so perfect!!!

And thanks again for reading, and for your feedback <3333333

ALLLLLL hung up?? Okie, you got it. Disco ball wall! I like that I would get a β€œforever home.” Just one place, I can never leave. I like the cafe idea, but I love the tree branch over a park bench idea more. There should be more disco balls outdoors!!

*official pact complete* fresh pure tender brains forever! Mmmmm

I’ve never tried Utz, I will try just for you and report back my findings. And I’ll definitely let you know if I make the tofu, especially after that passionate monologue. Maybe I will hear the tofu cry πŸ™‚

Always here for TDB. I hope to one day become TDB’s official Editor in Chief.

P.S. I like broccoli too
