THE SKULLS OF MIMI ILNITSKAYA
AND HIS SKULLS
We want to share with you the work of the artist and illustrator Mimi Ilnitskaya. This designer, originally from the Republic of Kazakhstan (Central Asian countries and former Soviet Republic), has a really cool trooop style!
Today, with access to an enormous amount of information, images and drawings, used to spending most of our day connected to the computer, tablet or telephone, and seeing artistic works that do not produce too much emotion, it is great to find the work of someone original and different. This artist has a multitude of drawings, all very interesting and attractive but we want to share with you the "skulls of famous artists" series in which we see the skulls of some of her favourite artists: Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Gustav Klimt, Ivan Ivazovsky. And according to the artist herself, this series of works has the label of "work in progress", so hopefully we'll soon be able to enjoy other super original designs.
We love the eclectic mosaic and art nouveau in the tribute to the Austrian artist Gustav Klimt. And surrealism in the work in homage to the Spanish artist Salvador Dalí, with its characteristic marks such as the clock and that inimitable moustache. The truth is that all the works are elegant and highly original, and the best sign that Mimi Ilnitskaya is now a name to follow in the world of design and illustration.
Rings that are thinner and more flush to the thumb are the best. The joint is the widest part, so it must be taken into account when measuring. Once you get the ring on the joint, it'll be safe.
If you look at your hand, you will see and feel that the index finger tends to have more flesh at its base. This means that any ring you order will fit quite well. We often suggest that you increase the size of your ring by +1, which will allow you to fold your finger.
Middle and ring finger
Beware of finger joints, especially if the finger is narrow at the base. When choosing rings for these fingers, remember that if it slides comfortably on the joint, it will be much too large for the base and will more than likely swing around the finger.
These fingers need extra attention because people tend to lose their rings all the time - especially when their hands are cold or wet, or when they enter and exit their pockets. The rule is to wear it as tight as possible while being able to bend your finger - if it is too tight, it is better to loosen it than to lose it.
Your fingers can shrink in summer and expand in winter.
The main reason your fingers expand and shrink is that your body reacts to changes in temperature in your environment. When you are in a cold environment, your body tries to keep your heart warm by tightening your blood vessels and reducing the blood flow to your skin. This process is called vasoconstriction. This is necessary because heat is lost from your skin to the environment, so your body tries to reduce the flow of blood to your extremities, especially to your fingers and toes. This shrinks your fingers and toes, so if you wear a ring on your finger, it will come off.
The opposite happens when it is hot outside. Your body tries to cool itself by dissipating heat through your skin, in a process we all know too well: sweating. As the outside temperature increases, your blood vessels dilate, so your blood flow increases and excess heat in your body can be released into the environment through your skin. This is called vasodilation. This dilation causes your fingers and toes to expand, so if you wear a ring, it will suddenly become much tighter.
