Tatiana Plakhova: Chaotic Structures
Tatiana Plakhova is an illustrator, designer and art director living and working in Russia. She graduated from Moscow State University with a Master in Social Psychology, and then went on to study graphic design in High Academic School of Graphic Design. Her works are based on mathematical simplicity and harmony. This mathematical style helps her to illustrate everything from biological cell to the space and pensive worlds. She creates both chaos and harmony. “Chaos has its own structure, and each structure contains chaos. I am attracted by both characteristics. They are both inseparable and the basic laws of the world we live in. We can’t enjoy the beauty of waves, stars and leaves without the chaotic, unpredictable, disordered part of live,” says she.

with less than 800 mountain gorillas and only 2500 eastern lowland gorillas left in the world, gorilla populations are now so low that birthing programs such of these are needed to ensure sufficient genetic diversity of the species.
Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are.

For far too long, “nude” bandages, “flesh”-colored bras and the complete lack of foundation colors in the local drug store have been a source of frustration only women of color can truly understand.
Now, one company is hoping to change that, thanks to their new line of flesh-colored lingerie made specifically for all shades of the spectrum, slated to hit the market this October.
