From a digg, to a jump to a possible stumbleupon… land! Here’s an amazing video of a speed painting of Albert Einstein. it’s only 3:30, so if you can spare the time it takes to google search “guy kicked in the nuts” for the 100th time, just watch this instead.
Harumph! Europe gets all the fun stuff! This year’s “Cans” Festival was help under Waterloo station and was an orgy of art. Artist from all over could come and leave their mark on the walls and sidewalks. Take up a paint bruch, spray can, markers, pretty much anything you can find and go to town. There was even a guy playing a piano in the tunnel! Art is a boundless medium.
Thanks Justin for another great post over at Big Head Design. Next year we plan the trip to Euoropeville and get OUR mark on the streets… literally!
“Uhhhh, yeah… das dustgusting” – Leon Phelps, The Ladies Man
c’mon…. anyone… anyone get that reference? haha
So, growing up in the desert and delivering pizza for the latter years of my high school career (and, cough cough, a couple college years as well) gives me a little bit of knowledge on the accumulation of dust on the back windows of cars. Dirt roads were no stranger to me. Mostly we’d just write obscenities on our fellow co-workers back windshields in mirror, so they could get a nice “how do ya do?” when they go to check their rearview, but this is ingenious! Scott Wade uses his artistic talent to “paint” murals on the dusty windows of cars… apparently living down a dirt road was some sort of inspiration for him as well! My inspiration was mostly dirt bikes and jumping the “doodle bug” out in the sticks… but who’s really quantifying talent here… wait, i am… fail!
Click… oooh. Click… Ahhh. Thank you NotCot! Taking an evening break on Memorial day to check what the web has to offer, and to my surprise it’s been a very busy day. I Guess some people never take a holiday!
So, through the blogs and the superbad, a little sliver of dismay caught my eye. (via Art & Ghosts) The series, Séance, Can be found through Art & Ghost’s Photostream on Flickr for better resolution and to catch an eye on all the fascinating textures. This beautiful artwork is darkly inspired by the book ‘The Other World’, as the artist states.
On a personal note, i love when an artist can find inspirations and turn them to a reality. Working for the magazine that i do, i’m constantly looking through any publication for the smallest bit of inspiration, and today i found that on a cover of SPIN magazine. Keep your eyes peeled, you never know when your muse is going to give you the cattle prod you’ve been waiting for.
French artist Miss Tigri has a great series of artwork on her website. The colors and simplicity are amazing. I’m really impressed with the consistent subject matter
Warning: The site is in French, so a web translator might be required unless you’re like me and just like to look at the pretty pictures.
