From their announcement:
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.
Americans say that Canadians are too nice because they’re jealous.
My favorite Benedict Cumberbatch role - The Creature from Frankenstein
It’s playing around the world again this October so if you haven’t seen it, or have only seen the Victor!batch version, I would highly recommended trying to see it. I liked him before I saw this but this performance truly changed my perceptions of theater and acting altogether, and aside from still having a big gross crush on him I respect him immensely.
I painted this JUST IN CASE we happened to run across him at SDCC (which was unlikely, but hey, wishful thinking) and also because I really wanted to paint the creature again, I love the design of the character a lot.
I’m not really satisfied with it but maybe I’ll revisit it in a few years when my skill level (hopefully) increases :))
