I went to high school with Sole and she is soooo great at watercolors, which is something i haven't been able to tackle just yet. they are so different than acryllic or oils, and i admire her for being able to utilize them as well as she does. They are so crisp, yet so soft. she is selling her artwork, so if you are interested, leave me a comment and we can discuss it more!!!
here is one good reason why we can't cut funding for the arts and music-- take a look at the passion radiating from these 4th and th graders. i started to tear listening to it... the whole thing. it just saddens me that the government wants to take this away. ITS THE MOST IMPORTANT!!!
Les Paul, 1915 - 2009 "I have younger friends who don't work, and they aren't doing so well. My secret is to keep going, keep working." "I wanted something very dense, something that would sustain long and more pieces of wood that would be soft, sweet, for more of a mellow sound." One of his last interviews
RIP Les Paul - what an artist. you inspired and impacted so many.
I'm going to start making artwork in memory of Les Paul... updates soon.
thank you for helping to make rock music what is is. wow, 94 years old. you lived a great life, and your legacy will live on through the music you helped create. your name is held by the greatest musicians alive!
This was a recent body paint photoshoot I had. I love this art!! I love being a part of the art, becoming the art. Collaborating your ideas with the painters ideas, and with the photographers ideas-- its a masterpiece that not any of us could have done alone.
and i left my phone there. i didnt even take my phone out of my purse, but somehow it was misplaced.
its about a month later, and i get a message on facebook from a girl i met in guatemala saying, "hey, we found your phone. i'm in miami now for a few days you can come pick it up at the hotel we are at."
crazy. so now i don't need to buy a new one!!! i can get my old new phone back, and get rid of this old old old nokia. awesommeee.
I really wonder what it would be like to step foot in Trystans mind. His pieces are so out of the blue- I bet walking in his brain would be like an amusement park with no end. it just keeps going and going and the activities you would participate in are wild. tons of rollercoasters, and weird creatures walking around.
anyways, keep it up Tritty! like what you are doing. stick it to the man, man.
PLEASE. this is so important that people realize this. this video here will tell you what you need to know. but think about it--- the same 7 companies are running 70% of the media, telling us exactly what they want us all to be. but we won't do it! come on everyone, lets stand up against these message, and start sending out ones that matter.
this is an example of how media should be, which is not how it is now. i don't know how all you feel about tv media now a days, i think its all a waste of time, save a few shows here and there. most isnt really doing anything for anyone. its all repetitive and bland and lame.
its all the stupid reality tv shows that we know are all models and aspiring actors are applying to. its fake. its not reality tv. its a bunch of 'pretty people' that think its the only way they can get anywhere in life. as a model myself, i see casting calls all the time for things like "the worlds ugliest husband" and "teens with sexy moms apply for casting for new reality tv show." no one cares about your ugly husband or sexy mom. and
the only things i ever look for in castings are wierd things like, "looking for magicians assistant" or "blonde type princess type for entertainer at childrens parties." see in doing that, i am learning how to make balloon art, paint faces, and entertain a group of the next generation to come! so if i can make them happy as kids, then they will be happier loving adults. thats a stretch, i know, but really... i want to have a good impact on children and people. i am a pleaser and a giver... and whats better than getting paid to paint!! each childs face is a new canvas! its amazing.
as for me, i have been drawing and sketching my whole life. before i was in art classes in grade school, i already had a sketch book. i was board of drawing make believe bunnies that didn't quite resemble the real thing, so i started drawing my hands, my feet, my legs, my arms, my lower half of my body in my bed, the lower half of my body in my bed with the view from my eyes as i pan around the room.
a progression. a composition of pieces. you start simple, and make it more complex... or you take the complex, and make it simple--- which is harder in a sense, because how much can you take away before losing what it is exactly?
but this article is neat and i think any artist that is stuck should read it.
Art can be whatever you want it to be. and in this case, it was the art of adding a new member to my family. my cousin danielle coon is pregnant!!! well, i found out today, but its been going on for about 22 weeks now. i really am close to my family, and everyone had assumed someone else told me hahah... but i missed the memo. its ok, you damn coon's... i forgive you.
im so happy for her! cant wait to see the progress of a new life.
Tyler is so cool. he's one of the chillest people i have ever met in my life, and i had no idea he made artwork. but he does. and its awesome. but he is currently in hong kong and is jet lagged. i cant wait to see some of his pictures!!!
Jen is amazing. she is such a flower-- pollinating the world. i think that makes sense... if it doesn't then i blame it on my insomniac state of mind. i have been up for hours looking at artwork by my friends and i just want to get it all on here!!!
back to jen- her work is so dynamic. and her fliers are fucking gorgeous.
Gina was in my art class when I was a senior in highschool. We sat near eachother and talked and made art the whole time. I always loved her work. Its just so, so, so pretty. its marrrrrvelous. no but seriously, her figures are great i kid you not!!! so subtle and soft. shes got it, man. this girl knows whats up!
