Today i fell in love with this bird-man in argyle socks
i also like this man in the overcoat, but not the one-man band
This artist makes these drawings, then stages elaborate sets with small figures (dolls?) and takes a photograph. It's a nice process.
go see Paolo Ventura at Hasted Hunt Kraeutler

Back in the "naughties", Mr. Rees from A Treasury Of asked his readers what was on their wish list for the holiday ... and well, it seems like the holidays are long past and, well, i didn't get anything from my wish list, it was lots of fun to make, and challenging to think of something for another person's blog and the readers that follow it.

I went to see the Art of the Samurai show at The Met, closing this weekend. There was a "no photography sign" that i obeyed.
An amazing show of treasures mostly from Japan. Some of the pieces were on loan for a short period of time (shorter than the duration of the show) and they were swapped out with other objects, which was a drag, because i wanted to see this helmet. Oh well... next life time right?
Feeling a little disappointed, i wandered around the museum aimlessly, and ended in the French Art Deco rooms... Yikes!
i couldn't quite capture with my camera the glitzy-ness of this mural-thing.
i don't know what is crazier, this or the what seemed like a hundred super sharp samurai swords a saw earlier...
