New products and Lipstick Tuesday

This Tuesday, I'm having a trunk sale at one of my favorite haunts, Insilico's Club reakt0r. Expect makeup, tshirts, and dresses for 1L. It lasts from 6-8pm, so come by and say hello. :D Here's the event info if you'd like to see it.

And here's a dollarbie you can find at Juicy's 3rd Birthday Celebration:

Eye Glitter

Eye glitter! It's been broken up into several tattoo layers, featuring two different styles for the outer eye, and three for the inner eye. There's also one layer for everything altogether. It's 1L at this location for a limited time.

Other news:

- There's a Midnight Mania board on the 2nd floor of my mainstore. I also have a gatcha machine there for different paintings. It's 10L to play the machine, and a great way to get some art if 100L is too much for you.

- I redid my Avalon gallery!

- I also have an SL Marketplace store now. Leave some feedback if you buy something!

Wet Eyeliner and Mascara

Wet Eyeliner/Mascara

Today I put in a gatcha machine in the mainstore, filled with these eyeliners and lashes. It's 2L to play the machine or you can buy the entire pack for 50L.

I like all kinds of eyeliners, but I especially like the kind where there's a shiny texture on the mascara. So this pack is for people who like that sort of thing. I also made some of the lashes short, because I think there's something about subtle makeup that's very nice.

I'll probably make eyeshadows next, so stay tuned.

Dramatic Stripe Makeup

Dramatic Stripe

Truly outrageous.

Dramatic Stripe

The stripe makeup you see is available for 100L at my mainstore. Included are tintable stripe tattoo layers for both sides of the face, along with various combinations of stripes together so you can save room for your favorite liner and lipstick.

How do you wear this? I suggest the magic rule of three stripes on your face; it provides balance and enough interest. Base the dominant stripe color on your outfit, and leave one stripe as your "statement" color. Don't put on everything at once because only a few people can pull that off.

This pack of stripe makeup is 100L, and is mod and copy. Please enjoy it!

And for those who say it looks like Jem and the Holograms, yep. Jem and David Bowie were my inspiration!

Artists' Statement, Sort Of

The porch is done..

I thought I would make a statement about my artwork and explain who I am, for those who are interested. If you want to see new product releases, just scroll down past this entry.

Who Are You?

Without giving too much away about myself, I'm an artist in real life. My store in SL is a reflection if my progression in reality; right now, I'm still kind of a noob, figuring things out and gaining a few appreciators. That's actually the same as my work in real life. I have one gallery representation under my arm (same as in SL, Lust 4 Art is a gallery that shows my work), I've transitioned a bit from amateur to somewhat professional, but I have a long way to go. You could say that about SL or RL and it would be true.

[ a.e.meth ] is a project and a mirror. I advance as it does. My whole, my complete self, is dedicated to creating beautiful things for people to admire and love. When I create, I'm completely happy.

How Do You Explain Your Work?

I imagine every piece I’ve ever done to exist on a large plane, kind of like a Courtesan graph.

Closest to the origin are the most realistic works, or those that are the most representational. Approaching infinity at x and y are the abstract pieces, which exist in their own sort of world and represent large, intangible ideas, such as love or the dislike for remembering prime numbers.

Realistic works are further divided by series. Like children listed in a family tree, they’re grouped into storylines, and can be placed chronologically on a wall to observe a developing plot.

I visit graphs, number lines and spectrums to explain things logically a lot, but I feel it's the best way to lay out images and relationships in a reasonable manner.

Where Did You Get The Name Aemeth?

'Aemeth' means 'truth'. It's based on the Jewish myth of golems. I first learned of it through GiTS 2, in this scene:

Togusa and Batou are investigating a crime, and enter a mansion filled with illusions. Motoko visits them and writes "aemeth" on the floor when what they're seeing is real, and "meth" when what they're seeing is false. I loved the Locus Solus mansion and still want to see a build of it.

When I first watched the Japanese dub, Batou pronounces "aemeth" as "aaaaeeemeth", and I thought it was cute. That's why there are dots in [ a.e.meth ].

I think that's enough explaining.. oh. Many people don't know this, but there's an easter egg in my store's title... click it and you'll receive an explanation of the same.

Thanks for reading all of this. :)

Love Illustrated

Love Illustrated

A special illustration has been set up both at my Avalon Gallery and mainstore in Kuu Ipo, in honor of the It Gets Better campaign. Please have a look. Copies are free for you to share with your friends.

I released this graph because hurts my heart to see so many children, who think they're alone and feeling they're abominations of nature for being gay, end their lives because of the harassment they endure. It's wrong and it needs to stop.

For so long I heard arguments against gay unions and marriage as being a threat to children. Well now gay kids are killing themselves. So what now?
