Hello Future

 

While conducting top secret research for B/D, I came across this now out of print tarot deck by furry/artist  Joe Rosales.    Im not saying that the world needs more Hello Kitty stuff, but the feline adaptations of the traditional Rider-Waite tarot deck worth checking out.

Kike’s portfolio just went up this week. Just in time for me to lean back in awe and relish the painterly craftsmanship. Aaah the craftsmanship…

Suzanne Treister

Recently, while doing some top-secret research for Beautiful/Decay, I ran across Suzanne Treister’s new series entitled “Alchemy”. They’re ink drawings transcribing the front page of daily newspapers into Alchemical style manuscripts.

 

Benjamin Phillips

Batman is pretty cool, but he does naughty stuff all the time.

Benjamin Phillip’s is an illustrator/poet/music man working out of Brighton, England. His work is a mixed bag of wizadry, sad children, wicked cool parties, and leaves.  His illustrations all have an underlined witty sense of humor that seems very unique and bizarre.

 

Seriously?

 

I threw up in my mouth a little bit while I was watching this. Phil Hansons work conjures up all the reasons I no longer dine with 6 year olds. Dont think I wouldnt understand if you disagreed with me. Sure, its art. Its also the reason why the rest of the world hates us, right? The only rewarding thing about this video as far as Im concerned is that awesome little dog, who must’ve been convinced that day that he could control people with his thoughts.

 

Oh yeah. One more thing. Its an Arbys Commercial. Consumerism has now officially penetrated every orifice of my daily life. Boo

Reno Ranger

As a self made German photographer Reno has a knack for making everything look gorgeous. beautiful people and places help too, but it takes that creative eye to slap ‘em all together.

 

Dominic Mangila: New Republic

 

Phillipines-born, New York City-based artist Dominic Mangila is currently having a single-painting show entitled New Republic at Marvelli Gallery through April 4. Also the name of the massive, near-7 by 9 foot painting, New Republic represents a 2 ½ year effort to portray Mangila’s family’s home province of Pampanga which was left in a state of destruction following the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in 1991.
