Heartwarming photography of orphaned boys with their adopted dogs
Robindra Boys is a project of photographer Sam Edmonds that captures young street children living in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Each young child in these photos is an orphan, having lost his parents or been separated from them, and taking up residence in a park called Robindra Shorbod. In this part of Dhaka, these orphaned boys sell recyclable plastic containers for food, which they share with their loyal canine friends.
Each portrait is as candid as possible, too. Edmonds instructed the boys not to pose for each shot, but rather enter the frame with their dog and then the shutter was released. The results are quite heartwarming–each boy holds his dog close to him, illustrating the unbreakable bonds between man (or in this case, boy) and his dog.
I’m guessing everyone who cares has already seen the Assassin’s Creed Unity animated short (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEjcVvxjZIc) that I colored, working with the incredible talents of Rob Zombie, Tony Moore, Justin Kamerer, and plenty of others on the animation team and in other roles. But I wanted to show a little behind the scenes of my own. [hire me] It was a pretty incredible gig to be a part of and now that it’s done, I’m not above using it to my advantage if at all possible. [seriously, if you have decent paying steady work, HIRE ME] As you may know, I typically make my living coloring comic books and similar, related jobs. [HIRE ME] I also illustrate. [Hire me for that!] Before you even ask, yes, I have been staying pretty busy already…busier than I’d like most of the time. [Still…hire me.] Unfortunately, as cool as much of the work I have is right now, the vast majority of it is either sporadic, low paying, or both, and I (desperately) need to get back to working on decent paying gigs, preferably the kind I can count on from month to month. [This is why you should hire me.] It has become increasingly more difficult to get by and I mean no disrespect to anyone working with low-budgets, on the indie scene, or scraping by on your own. I love all of that…but at the same time, I like eating, paying bills, and not driving my wife into an early grave because of the stress of living week to week with no good answers about how we’re going to get by. [Please?] So, if you like this kind of work or the rest represented in my portfolio here and are in a position to hire colorists or illustrators, please drop me a line. If not, I still appreciate you and it does wonders for my ego that you care about my little art-habit. If you wanted to share this post, that would be super too.
Tom Bagshaw, master of the mysterious, has slowly (and slightly in secret) been working on a new series of darker and occult themed portraits (from over 800 user submissions on Instagram) entitled, “The Black Lodge" which will be released tomorrow, August 1st, 2014 for purchase as well as grouped together in an impressive collectors book.
The book and portraits will be available tomorrow in Tom’s Online Store.

And here they are:
Thermoception: Ability to sense heat and cold. Thermoceptors in the brain are used for monitoring internal body temperature.
Proprioception: The sense of where your body parts are located relevant to each other.
Chronoception: Sense of the passing of time. Your body has an internal clock.
Equilibrioception: The sense that allows you to keep your balance and sense body movement in terms of acceleration and directional changes.
Magentoception: This is the ability to detect magnetic fields. Unlike most birds, humans do not have a strong magentoception, however, experiments have demonstrated that we do tend to have some sense of magnetic fields.
Tension Sensors: These are found in such places as your muscles and allow the brain the ability to monitor muscle tension.
Nociception: In a word, pain. This was once thought to simply be the result of overloading other senses, such as “touch”, but it has it’s own unique sensory system. There are three distinct types of pain receptors: cutaneous (skin), somatic (bones and joints), and visceral (body organs).
