Katar Dagger

  • Dated: mid-17th century
  • Culture: Indian
  • Measurements: overall length 36 cm

Of characteristic form, the hilt of the dagger has chiseled grips terminating in acanthus leaves showing traces of silver. The base features curvilinear profiling, while the finely-forged blade comes with sinuous edge treatment. The blade also has a bright polished with armor-piercing tip and actively-patterned silver-gray Damascus steel visible in the triangular central panel and flanking pairs of triple fullers on either side.

Iman attended some of David’s concerts in the late 1980’s, but they were not properly introduced until October 1990 at a dinner held by their mutual hairdresser, Teddy Antolin.

Bowie fell in love instantly.  

He was later quoted in an interview saying “I was naming the children the night we met … it was absolutely immediate.” But not so for Iman. “I did not want to get involved with a rock star. No way. It is not a sane thing to do, but David changed my mind. He wooed me.”

Not long after their first meeting, Iman had to travel to Paris.  She arrived to a hotel room filled with her favorite flower (gardenias) and a card from David.  

When she returned to Los Angeles, David was there waiting for her at the airport. Iman was sold. In an interview with NyMag Iman recalled, “His actions spoke louder [than words].… the doors open to the plane, and I come out and I see all these people taking a picture of somebody. And he was standing there, flowers in hand, no security. That was when I knew. He didn’t care if anyone saw.”

So beautiful

I'm going to get myself in fighting trim,
scope out every angle of unfair advantage.
I'm going to bribe the officials.
I'm going to kill all the judges.
it's going to take you people years to recover from all of the damage.

Fantastic illustrations created by Los Angeles based artist Julian Callos.

I am an illustrator and gallery artist based in Los Angeles. I’ve explored a wide variety of subjects in my work (which can range from lighthearted takes on popular culture to darker, symbolism-filled narratives), but I am continuously fascinated by nature, folklore, death, and the allure of the unknown.

This is my Army of Darkness tattoo that I got back in November of 2013. It was done by Anson Easton at Forever Tattoo in Cape Coral, FL. I’m a huge Bruce Campbell/Evil Dead dork so I had to get one. I have 18 tattoos in total, most of which are nerdy such as Harry Potter, The Hobbit, my Back to the Future half sleeve, etc. This one is one of my favorites though, Bruce Campbell even retweeted it!

It’s colress' birthday today and he's a very good friend and the person who introduced me to NGE so I decided to draw his wife! (In a “I love this character so much and relate to her endlessly” kinda way… not a sort of life-size, pillow fetish sort of way).
Happy Birthday buddy!
