Mudchicken Loves To Smoke

Seattle based artist Vincent Pacheco also known as “Mudchicken” creates beautiful mixed media collages and paintings. These cigarette paintings are hilarious. I feel the cancer coming on just by looking at them.

A Very Awesome Book

dallas_clayton_unicorns

 

Dallas Clayton’s “An Awesome Book” is something I wish I had when I was a little girl. I probably would’ve died for the cluster of multicolored prismatic rocket powered unicorns. I would’ve dreamed of riding them into Candyland castle playgrounds filled with cabbage patch doll knights with Queen playin’ on My First Sony! Maybe I’ll have a kid so I can do that all over again. Anyways… his fanciful illustrations are playful and imaginative and can be enjoyed young and old, yesterday and tomorrow, ten years ago and one hundred from now…

Troy Moth

 

Troy Moth was born in a remote tree-planting camp on the west coast of Canada and spent the first few years of life in a tent guarded by large dogs. He loved the wild and abundant nature he grew up immersed in, but eventually the call to adventure became too much and he moved, first across Canada to the big city (Toronto), then across the world to India, to pursue a career in photography.

Troy has worked for numerous commercial and editorial clients, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Rolling Stone, GQ and many others. But he’s never forgotten his roots, so with a career in fashion now behind him, he’s focusing instead on his art, and living, once again, deep in a forest on the west coast of Canada.

Jeff Friesen Uses Legos o Satirize The 50 US States

West Virginia: Bobby has five minutes left on his shift in the coal mine. Just enough time to dig a little deeper.

Washington: We can only close our eyes using clothespins.

Washington: We can only close our eyes using clothespins.

Texas: Rounding up little doggies who have lost their way.

Maryland: Today the crabs decided to have a picnic of their own.

Canadian Photographer Jeff Friesen uses the iconic Legos to build dioramas that he later photographs. In the series 50 States of Legos, Friesen satirizes each state in the United States using the toy’s characters, blocks, and accessories. Scenes are set against colorful backdrops like mountains, beaches, and grassy lands. Some include aliens, cowboys,and even historic figures like George Washington.

Each state has their own legacy or a reputation for something. Friesen plays on these associations and includes witty captions that accompany them. I live in Maryland, for instance, where eating crabs is a cherished pastime. Friesen pokes fun at this, turning crabs against a couple trying to boil a crab. Other places receive the same, if not more over-the-top treatment. Alaska features a Yet fishing with an Eskimo. A cowboy in New Mexico is prodded by an alien. There is a dragon in the mines of West Virginia. Friesen’s series is a light-hearted look at the states, which are made even more amusing the more time you spend with them and their details. (Via Honestly WTF)

Elian Creates Street Art Inspired By Abstract Graphic Design

The Argentinian street artist known simply as Elian works with a clean and seemingly effortless style rare in street art.  While his large abstract murals would be at home on a magazine page, they work to a powerful effect inhabiting entire sides of buildings.  Often using colors reminiscent of a graphic designers CMYK color palette, Elian maximizes the simplicity of each mural.  A buildings bland blank wall becomes a space for an exercise in composition and color.

Rainbow Arabia- “Let Them Dance”

Rainbow Arabia in a couple words: “A small but eminently worthy example could even be found in the mere existence of this rad new band called Rainbow Arabia. Based in Echo Park, they’re the husband-and-wife team of Daniel and Tiffany Preston, whose colorfully tough new dance-floor exotica rocks so hard at least partially because of what we and they have learned about ‘world music.'”

Things to note in the video directed by Jacqueline Castel: the neon colored instruments, guns, fast cuts and zooms, and lastly, the ability to bring Echo Park to just about anywhere in the world! I love it.
