Caricatures of Death Personified

From a pre-Revolutionary magazine, first published in Russia in 1906. Illustrations by Boris Kustodiev.

Personifications of death included depictions of the devastating 1906 drought and ensuing famine, and the ravages of cholera, in the midst of revolutionary uprisings in Moscow.

all your Captain America posts are making me very emotional and I just want to curl into a little ball and cry now.

I have spent every day since I was fourteen—so like, nine years—wishing that I had someone who wanted me to grip their hands and Explain To Them Why Steve Rogers Is Great.

Try to imagine how gratifying Tumblr is for me right now.

Hey uh this may be weird but a few years ago I started drawing some fanart for The Chosen End and I ended up actually improving and now I go to an art school in Vienna and I love it so uhm thanks I guess? You guys kinda made my life because now drawing is the only thing I'm actually good at and yeah. Also thanks to you I'm now obsessed with Russian history and Russia in general (and I'm currently learning Russian which is awesome so, thanks again) Have a nice day =D

Oh man, thanks so much for sharing this with me! TCE was always a labor of love for both of us, and I still look back so fondly on the time we spent. I’m really touched to hear that it helped point your life in the direction it’s going now, especially given how happy you sound! Good luck with school! =D

do you ever wonder how a character is doing after a series is over

Ok so you got me into Venture Bros and I got to watch the first season on netflix and I loved it, but I can't find the rest of it anywhere else. Not without like, paying for it on amazon or something. (Which I'm not opposed to, exactly, but I like seeing something before I buy the thing.) Do you have any idea where else I could watch it??

Venture Bros. is the most fantastic fucking show, and everyone who doesn’t watch it is missing out on the single best character-driven comedy on television right now. I’m so glad you’re loving it; seriously, the writing only gets better. 

I mean, far be it from me to hook you up with illegal entertainment contraband, but it’s possible that if you clicked part of this message, you’d be taken to a place where you could mainline cartoons to your heart’s content.

okay but can you imagine like

a week after your truck gets stolen out of the goddamn mall parking lot, you get a knock on the door and there’s fucking Captain America standing there. Says he’s here about your goddamn truck. And for a moment you wonder if he started working for the police now that Shield took a dive, but you don’t say so, you just nod when he describes your truck to you, license plate number, make, model and color, all to a tee. 

And then the weirdest thing happens (weirder than Captain America just showing up at your front door). Captain America starts looking bashful. And then he tells you your truck was lost ‘in the line of duty’. You must still look a little awestruck because he elaborates; he’s the one who took your truck. 

Captain America fucking stole your goddamn truck out of the goddamn mall parking lot.

And he’s going to pay for a new one. And he’s very, very sorry.

He comes with you to the car dealership, too. Because he’s so so sorry, also he gets military discount, so he can help you.
he is so so sorry

Hello! Have you ever seen the movie Snowpiercer? It was also another movie with Chris Evans in it and it's a sci-fi movie in league with Bladerunner, which I've noted you also like. I would recommend it if you haven't seen it.

I haven’t yet, I was waiting to see if it would get a wide release! But now that that looks unlikely, I might possibly have done something that rhymes with “snorrented” a copy. I’m so pumped, trains and Chris Evans and class warfare and Bong Joon-ho, what’s not to like?

Your blog never fails to make me think... And for that, I thank you.

If you’re looking to think about superheroes and Russia (all of Russia, the entire Russia) and weird skinwalking medieval monsters and how mid-20th century French artists were total catty dicks, I’m your girl. 

It’s a specialized skill set, but it’s all I have.
