People don’t think enough about monkeys. I’d like to change that.

Hipster Art Formula

July 18, 2009

anthropomorphism + unnecessarily bright and/or unnatural colors + randomly dispersed meticulous detail + creatures oozing things that they should not be oozing= the ultimate formula for ensuring a hipster’s artistic delight.

Here’s some stuff I like that comes pretty damn close to that ideal. Click on the pictures for links to the artist’s sites

Alakazam!

This British guy’s art is actually based on a comic book, which you’ll see if you click on the site. He also sells sweet shirts and posters which I one day hope to buy.

whitmarshCheck out her site for embroidered ghettoblasting yetis. There’s no going wrong with that kind of absurd juxtoposition. It’s just intrinsically tight.

Hello World!

June 3, 2009

Hello World! I decided I can’t title this first entry any better than the above wordpress default. Simple, sweet, grandiose.

I don’t really know what I’m gonna put in this yet, but it seemed like it was time to get an outlet for all the cool stuff I come across and want to remember, especially since I have the compulsive need to show everyone anyway.

Well, I’m going to try my best not to let this blog dissipate into nothing, like my past two blog efforts. I spent too long on the salt graphic to let that happen. More soon!
