As part of The Last of Us Day 2020's celebrations, Naughty Dog revealed some new gorgeous art by Kojima Productions' Yoji Shinkawa of Ellie, Abby, and Joel.This new artwork, which you can see below, is very reminiscent of Shinkawa's previous art from both the Metal Gear franchise and Death Stranding, and you can download it for free on PC or mobile to use as a wallpaper, if you so choose.

The Last of Us Day 2020 Announcements

In addition to this artwork, Mondo revealed new The Last of Us 2 posters and vinyl with striking art from Tula Lotay.

The day before The Last of Us Day 2020, Naughty Dog announced it would be changing the name of its Outbreak Day to The Last of Us Day due to COVID-19 and "the events of the last year and the challenges we all continue to face."

It also teased some of the fun for The Last of Us Day 2020, including that CMON is developing a The Last of Us board game, a new free The Last of Us Part II Beach Theme would be available to all PS4 users, and new statues of Joel and Ellie would be made available.

While there wasn't much breaking news from these festivities, The Last of Us Part 2 writer/director Neil Druckman did give the vaguest of teases for the next iteration of The Last of Us' Faction multiplayer that was cut from The Last of Us Part 2, but was promised to return in some form.

Thank you to all the wonderful fans for an incredible #TheLastofUsDay ! Your positivity and love is incredibly inspiring," Druckman wrote. "Oh... and about that other thing... be patient. It'll be worth it."

History of Art Timeline

The historical past of art is usually told as a chronology of masterpieces created during each civilization. It can thus be framed as a narrative of high culture, epitomized by the Wonders of the World. On any other hand, vernacular art expressions can even be integrated into art historic narratives, called folk arts or craft. The more intently that an art historian engages with these latter sorts of low culture, the much more likely it is that they will determine their work as analyzing visual culture or cloth culture, or as contributing to fields associated with art historical past, akin to anthropology or archaeology. In the latter cases, art gadgets may be called archeological artifacts. Surviving art from this era comprises small carvings in stone or bone and cave painting. The first traces of human-made gadgets appeared in southern Africa, the Western Mediterranean, Central and Eastern Europe Adriatic Sea, Siberia Baikal Lake, India, and Australia. These first traces are generall

‘A boiling point’: UC Berkeley art community calls for institutional change

Amid ongoing national unrest, college communities continue to call for change by challenging institutional practices, racism and social justice issues. Over the past few months, the UC Berkeley art community has questioned the responses and actions of campus administration. In a letter sent to the faculty and administrators of UC Berkeley's Department of Art Practice in June, alumni and students demanded acknowledgment of the Black Lives Matter movement and a commitment to remove white supremacy from art institutions, among other demands. "There is a heavy hypocrisy in the silence and inaction of institutions that pride themselves on values of inclusivity and diversity, claim to prioritize marginalized voices, and borrow from radical decolonial practices of BIPOC," the letter states. During the same month, senior faculty from the department responded with a letter stating their support for the Black Lives Matter movement and their commitment to reparative work wit

Bob Gibson was not just best pitcher of modern era, but during time of strife, mastered the art of fear

For a lot of successful athletes, winning in competition is about winning their own internal battles between anger and fear. One can be generated by the other. One can also be erased by the other. Those who effectively use anger, even if they must fabricate it, can overcome their fear and simultaneously instill it within the opponent. This statement covers a lot of competitors and a lot of time, so I don't issue it carelessly. But in all my years, I've never seen an athlete channel fear in the opposition more effectively than Bob Gibson. He was the young Mike Tyson of baseball, way before Iron Mike. And unlike him, Gibson didn't flame out in his prime. He was not only the best in the business during a 5-year span in the mid-'60s (1964-68), he won his second Cy Young in 1970 at age 31 and threw a no-hitter the next year against the best hitting lineup – and it turned out, best team – in baseball that season, the 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates. I saw an old fan on
