"Man, I’m glad I called that guy!"
instead of all those cheesy bullying posters around we should just post this
Me and my friend painted two portal murals at school.
I’m pretty bummed that I don’t have the right watercolors to recreate Clematis’ skin tone. :c
I’m excited to finally show you guys the new San Diego Comic Con exclusive ASSASSIN’S CREED poster by Angry Blue and myself!
It’s being released this weekend, in tandem with the release of the animated short directed by Rob Zombie, with artwork by yours truly, finished by AngryBlue, and color by John Rauch, presented by New Science & Ubisoft.
The image features the game’s lead character, Arno, in a stained glass window composed of images from the actual animated short.
The print is an 18 x 24”, 3-color silkscreen print on natural toned paper, with metallic red and a clear gloss overlay, and is signed by both artists. The print is limited to a run of 700 copies total. 500 will be given away at San Diego Comic Con 2014. After the show, AngryBlue and I each will have 100 available on our respective websites.
How cool is this??
The University of Sankoré, or Sankore Masjid is one of three ancient centers of learning located in Timbuktu, Mali, West Africa. The three mosques of Sankoré, Djinguereber Mosque and Sidi Yahya compose the famous University of Timbuktu. During the 14th -16th century, Sankore University enrolled more foreigen students than New York University today.
The Mali Empire gained direct control over the city of Timbuktu in 1324 during the reign of Mansa Kankou Musa also known as Musa I “King of Kings”. He designed and saw the construction of one of Sankore’s first great mosques and the Jingeray Ber Masjid in 1327.The foundations of the previous structure were laid around 988 A.D. on the orders of the city’s chief judge Al-Qadi Aqib ibn Mahmud ibn Umar. A local mandinka lady, esteemed for her wealth, financed his plans to turn Sankoré into a world class learning institution.
By the end of Mansa Musa’s reign (early 14th century CE), the Sankoré Masjid had been converted into a fully staffed Madrassa (Islamic school or in this case university) with the largest collections of books in Africa since the Library of Alexandria. The level of learning at Timbuktu’s Sankoré University was superior to that of all other Islamic centers in the world. The Sankoré Masjid was capable of housing 25,000 students and had one of the largest libraries in the world with between 400,000 to 700,000 manuscripts.
Today, the intellectual legacy of Timbuktu is neglected in historical discourse. These pages of WORLD history tend to get ripped out. .
