ALMA 01w 1024x576 A(lma)fraid of dolls: Juvenile admission since it starts off so innocently, but I was spooked out by the entire premise of the following from Pixar animator Rodrigo Blaas. I just knew something was afoot from the first glance of that f***ing doll in the window, when I instinctively started thinking “Don’t do it, kid!” [ Continue Reading ]

Osamu cover 295x400 The Art of Osamu: Japans Walt Disney

The image you see above is certainly a familiar one. It goes without saying that Astro Boy is an icon just as Mickey Mouse is to Disney, and as Mario is to Nintendo. The deceptively cute character is by far the most popular creation of one Osamu Tezuka, referred to by many as the “God of Manga.” Although I’m not really in to apotheosis of any kind, unless of course we’re talking about Michael Jackson :), the epithet certainly isn’t unwarranted considering Mr. Tezuka’s role in creating what has now become an explosive industry.

When it comes to street artists none are as famous as the ever elusive Banksy. With his satirical, playful and obviously bold expressions of graffiti genius, it is no wonder this UK legend/ hero has made it big time. A documentary, or is it a psuedo-documentary,  about him called “Exit through the Gift Shop” debuted at the Sundance Film Festival recently and while it doesn’t promise to reveal his identity or anything else about him for that matter, it does promise intrigue.

Rachell  Sumpter Slow and Steady 2009 1353 97 Soft human scene: Rachell Sumpter

You may be more familiar with Rachell Sumpter’s work gracing the covers of Dave Eggers novels—particularly the recently acclaimed bestseller bookslip for What Is the What—but her paintings showcase a softer palette, that seem to celebrate kinship, culture and subtle organizational chaos between man, woman and the  mythical/natural beasts.

ingrid michaelson bubblegum Crush of the Week Part Deux: Ingrid Michaelson

For the second and final (for now) Crush of the Week  blog, I tried to do something for the ladies. I really did. After all it is your holiday that I am honoring by doing this. But… it didn’t turn out as expected. At first I thought to myself “hey, I hear a lot of girls say that Jared Leto dude is crushworthy and multi-talented”, but I just couldn’t bring myself to post that. Sorry :) Besides, the entire holiday is devoted to the ladies right? Dudes need something too, even if it is just a blog post or two…

Alas I did make a compromise though….

The featured artist this week is indie musician Ingrid Michaelson [ Continue Reading ]
