I’ve been working on this project for about two weeks. Tweaking and such. I call it “Long Live Shantytown” inspired by my favorite musician Jehro. When you see the image larger there is an ‘X’ located on each piece plus you can get a little more detail than what you see here. I’ve posted larger images of each on my FlickR photostream here. I’m so hooked and intrigued by how much I’m hooked and intrigued on coastlines right now. It might be an issue….but honestly I think I just miss the water at the moment. I’ve been asked to do a pastel version of this instead of these bold colors, so I’ll post that if I get around to it.

Colby Jack cheese, sliced thin, resembles coastline of the earth at around 10,000 ft on Google Earth. It was this revelation that got me thinking about coastlines. And as you can tell from the most recent buttons post, I’m quite intrigued with the convergence of water and land. So now my next project, art-project, is to create a series exploring coastlines around the world. The pic above is a cropped snap of that project. I’m about 3/5 of the way done, and I’ll post it when it’s finalized. But that is what I have been working on instead of updating the site consistently. (Excuse #1284 of the year for not updating as often as I would like)

Very unique art from UK based artist Sophie Scaplehorn. Only 22 years old she seems to have a huge future ahead of her, and I’m already interested in seeing more. I particularly like the India piece above.

Today we have Wooster Collective. The Street Art Blog. “The Wooster Collective was founded in 2001. This site is dedicated to showcasing and celebrating ephemeral art placed on streets in cities around the world.” - Woostercollective.com. My favorite recent video they posted was Nick Walker, by the end of his stunt, there is a cheering crowd.
