Iron Grey Mammoth AKA Jairus Tonel presents some great mixed media work that combines cartoon icons from way back with current events. In the work above, Tonel is transforming the traditional republican elephant into “dumbo” a timeless disney character. This collision of conceptual and physical materials works together with current events to create something very relevant, thought-provoking, and comical.
This is just a fraction of the digital Valhalla Bo Lee created with his fresh new html/art piece “The Elephant“. I cant promise that this page will provide you with all the answers, but it begins with a poem that put my entire, boring life into depressing context. On a lighter note, this page also allows comparison between all the web-pages of major organized religions. I hate to say it, but, Scientology raised that bar way up.
Scanwiches is a project started by Jon Chonko, a New York based designer. The quality of the images of these sandwiches is really incredible, and always leaves me hungry. This project at first glance seems so simplistic and childish, but it really brings up quite an important concept: sometimes the everyday item that we take for granted can be very beautiful and artistic.
Over 4700 wild animals were admitted as sick or injured in the city of Toronto last year. This may seem like a steep number for a town of less than 3 million. One might ask themselves if there might be other intentions involved in creating this statistic.
Gali Erez is a graphic designer and illustrator from Israel. She is a CalArts graphic design graduate currently living and working in Los Angeles.
I’ve always enjoyed her playful use of proportion, fearless use of color and youthful connection to her content. She loves to mix markers, colored pencils, Micron pens, crayons, chalk, pencil and anything else she can get a hold of to create her work.
I love the use of color in Tasha Kusama’s work. The Soft Sculptured Dolls piece remind me of some sort of urban resident aliens because of the bright converse combined with striped tube socks.
The work of Gilbert & George is as intricate as it is bizarre. Never holding back their views on politics, religion, or homosexuality, this work always manages to offend, or at least shock, someone.
Gilbert and George beautifully contradict their visual and conceptual visions. This combination of a style that mimics stain-glass windows found in churches collides with negative connotations about religion and conformity to create an image that gets you thinking.
From what I gather, Kye Crow is a seamstress/nomadic animal rescuer. “My partner Gill and I live with our huge family of rescues animals.We live on the edge of lake Pamamaroo after having travelled over 2,000 klms in a wagon pulled by camels and with over 40 previously rescued animals.Check out our website www.animalrescuecamelcaravan.com.We are both creative and as well as our range of Goddess clothing ,I crochet wild jumpers and bags,paint and write,that is when Im not feeding an orphan animal.At the moment its a joey and a lamb called Shirley”
After checking out theyre animal rescue site, I still cant tell if this is for real or not. It just sounds too amazing to be true. All I know is: I just payed $700 for a jumper just like this and now I feel taken.
