Flip It Good

Mister Kama used a series of drawings on label stickers and an elevator handrail as his flipbook canvas in Milan.  Check it out…

For another interesting flipbook idea, check out Erbert and Gerbert’s Human Flipbook.

Just a Sprinkle a Day…

I’m really digging this deviant art trend – urban landscape as inspiration and canvas.

Street artist, Morfai, is responsible for bad-assifying transforming this statue called Seeder in Kaunas, Lithuania.

In addition to the actual piece there is an interesting short video brainstorm of the ideas that Morfai threw around before deciding on the handful of star dust.

Make Some Space

It’s here!… Today, September 19th is the second annual Park(ing) Day.  Conceived by REBAR, a San Francisco-based art collective, PARK(ing) Day is a one-day, global event centered in San Francisco where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks.

This is obviously a “green movement” but I think it has greater implications.  I was lucky enough to walk past three of these exhibits on my way into the office… one of which I had enough time to sit at while enjoying my coffee for a bit and I can honestly say that it changed my morning.  If nothing else… it will change your perspective… and only good things can come of that. 

If you get inspired and are interested in participating next year, check out the Park(ing) Day How to Manual for hints on how to create your own parking project.  Have fun – and send me pics!

The New Crunk

Krink.  Basically the gold standard in marking products for both street and studio environments developed by graffiti writer/artist, Craig “KR” Costello.  The most notorious and recognizable (to my the untrained eye) effect is the dripping ink aesthetic that has graced many phone booths, mailboxes and subway windows.  This is the stuff I am talking about…

This stuff reminds me of late night shinanagins in the LES.  Good times… Anyway, if you aren’t getting your fill of this deviant art how about tucking your Mac away in a Krink-ed out sleeve developed by InCase+Krink+Arkitip.  (yeah, I said “krinked-out”… so?) 

I am sure you have figured out by now that this has pretty much nothing to do with crunking… but if the mere mention of the dance has inspired you, check out the “how to crunk” instructions.

Aaaargh

This is first time I have seen deviant art on a boat.  Who does this kind of work?  A pirate?  Regardless, I dig it…

So a pirate walks into a bar and sits down. 

The bartender comes over to take his order and notices a steering wheel on his lap.  Curious, the bartender asks, “what’s up with the steering wheel?”

The pirate answers, ” Aaaargh!  Don’t know… but it’s drivin’ me nuts!”
