What if women had minstrel cycles instead of menstrual cycles? You’d just have a guy with a lute follow you around for a week every month and play you songs constantly?

#no but can you imagine if that was how you learned once a month you weren’t pregnant#by some dude singing songs about the victory of it#you wake up and he’s there and you are so happy#this dude becomes your favorite dude#but then you realize you haven’t seen your friend’s minstrel in a while#I mean everyone notices#like half the people are on the same cycle so for one week out of four your job is just flooded with fucking minstrels everywhere#the cacophony#but Mary over there is all alone#and she’s like my minstrel is late#but we all fucking know#her minstrel has gone off to find her a baby#a nine month journey he must make alone#and until he comes back there is no music in her life#what a glorious world this would be#I love the minstrels (@onionjuggler)

Benjamin Carbonne 

Facebook

Benjamin Carbonne was born in 1970 in France. Self-taught, he invested in 20 years this art, “says” what bothers him, the key to sometimes expresse violence, or that another world and eventually give way to something else in him. The artist paints often tormented beings, this period  of his work will focus on the sometimes sweet and sensitive, but also very often torn, torn or distorted with pain faces, the cry, the need for expression. In 2009, this is the command of a “pieta” that will cause a different body work.

After hitting with intensity expression of what could be more lively, more skinned him like humanity, Benjamin naturally takes this new way to work on the other bodies or faces, revealing all their power in contrast depth and lightness, precision and pictorial space to the imagination.
