Saw @yayahan hanging out at Kamui Cosplay’s booth, snagged her for a photo. Love the structure on this one - esp the many layers on her head! But I have *got* to stop slouching when I take pics with her, ugh. I just feel guilty for being tall around her |D;;

5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.

Seriously? What is it with me and major injuries right before a con? Climbed into bed and my cat sliced my eyelid open. I’ve got antibiotics on it and I took ibuprofen… here’s hoping I don’t wake up with a puffed shut eye. Chambray, you’re in the doghouse for this one…
