Learn Something For Your Big Brain

These illustrators from Britain post an interesting fact everyday with an equally awesome drawing. My favorite obviously is the longest fart, mostly because I like to imagine what farts sound like to other people. To me the best ones are like "BREEEEaaaa-PP-P!" A little like Louis Armstrong doing scales. Enjoy! Hope you have a great weekend, wherever you are. Here in New York it is a gorgeous day. The air is getting crisp, the birds are going south and I am looking forward to a spectacular fall with pumpkin carving parties and lots of knee highs.

Basil Wolverton: A Totally Cool Guy

Remember when you used to sneak around reading Mad Magazine when you were a kid because it felt like you were doing something bad? I think it was the grotesque illustrations of oozing pimples, farts, drinking, and sagging cleavage that both intrigued me and made me feel like I was doing something adult and off-limits. It was no Psalty the Singing Songbook, which is what I was normally exposed to. Well, Basil Wolverton was responsible for a lot of those feelings. He drew for Mad in the 50's, but it inspired the gross-out aesthetic of the magazine in its later years. These drawings are so cool and shocking still. Read more about him in the NYT article.

About Town

A duck spontaneously combusts near the Cloisters.
A birthday card I made for my friend, Jay.
Love this image.
I cannot figure out what is being portrayed here.
Security googly eyes.

Some images I have been gathering from outings around the city.

A Red Sea

Toes and secret drinks.
A friend's bag.
A crazy Londoner's willing and awesome socks.
A stranger's bike.
A friend's style.
If you're wondering what's red here you might think a pigeon's feet.
A friend's bra.
Red everywhere!
Ketchup amongst friends.
A sleepy parked truck driver let me take this.
Please don't walk.

One day recently I decided to take pictures of everything red I saw. I ended up meeting some interesting people asking if I could photograph their socks and bikes and such. Also, it was a great capsule of how I spent the day. I highly recommend it. Here are the results.

Super Solveig!

I love this girl. Solveig is her name. She's a 10 year old baller graffiti artist. Regardless of being super young and a baller, I love her art! It reminds me of some sketches I have done. The colors are spectacular and the images positive. So good to see. The Scare Cuts one is my favorite. Enjoy! Have a great day, wherever you may be.
