In case anyone was wondering why we were late to the con Saturday, it’s because this was our friday.
next year we’ll have it planned better! it was a fantastic night, though. thanks to all our friends that let themselves be put to work for the price of grilled meats and beer.
I want to do this on a wall for people to fill in!!
Technicolor maven Maya Hayuk recently opened her solo show “Alles Klar” at Die Kunstagentin in Cologne, Germany. Sparsely hung on the gallery’s white, painted-brick walls, the painter and muralist’s neon creations have room to breath without overwhelming the viewer. After all, Hayuk almost solely uses neon hues, often overlapping them in kaleidoscopic patterns that subtly evoke folk art forms such as weaving. Each piece attracts the eye like a nexus of energy — as if Hayuk’s intense color choices have a sort of gravitational pull. On a mural created at the entrance of the gallery, Hayuk turns up the volume, subsuming a corner of the space in refracted rainbows. See more on Hi-Fructose.
Last week we featured a selection of exquisite works of cut paper art by a Japanese Kirie artist named Akira Nagaya. Today we learned that Nagaya also creates awesome cut-out depictions of beloved Anime, manga, cartoon and comic book characters using individual Post-it notes.
Visit Akira Nagaya’s Facebook page to view more of his playful pop culture Post-it cut-outs.

While I was travelling I did quite a bit of sketching and one of my favourites was this picture of Ossip Zadkine’s absorbing sculpture in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. Really the drawing was just an excuse to sit and look at the sculpture, because it’s just amazing!
Having neglected humans so far in my papercutting, I decided to start abstract and give this picture of the statue a go. The shapes and shading made it particularly difficult so I didn’t attempt to do the design mirror image, which is why the papercut faces the opposite direction.
