The Wurst gallery is having The Wurstminster Dog Show, a collection of dog portraits by a ton of artists, like the one above by insanely detailed artist, Lee Misenheimer a.k.a. Destroy Rock City. I love his art so much, and the drawing above is only $150! UGH. I’d love to get it!
The Boston Globe posted this photo article about a very simple subject. What would $456 billion buy, which is the amount of money that our country will have spent on the “war” in Iraq. Totally unbelievable the things we could do in this world if we only thought a little harder about our actions.
Julie Moon has some amazing ceramic pieces over at her site right now. Honestly, the others aren’t as weird as this one, which looks like it’s been yanked from the brain of Murakami. I could easily see her pieces fitting in at IKEA, especially her decorated fists and forearms, those things are so rad.
Check out her site to see what I’m talking about!
I think Dan Funderburgh is basically the modern day master of wallpaper. His patterns are always rich with detail and color, and never cease to amaze me. He’s just recently started to have some of his papers printed through Flavor Paper. I would love to have these all over my house (although maybe not the DFA inspired one above, I might go blind from looking at that pink for too long). Also be sure to check out his other apparel and graphic work on his site. All around amazing guy.
I absolutely love Super Sunglasses. They’re hand-made in Italy and come in the most awesome colors, though I’d probably be boring and get them in black or white. Pictured above is the phenomenal Uffie, looking especially hot in her red Supers. Her first full length album is due to come out sometime later this year, I can’t wait!
This is the new video for ‘Ankle Injuries’ by Fujiya & Miyagi. I think I’d sort of describe this as the flashier twin brother of Michel Gondry’s video of ‘Fell in Love with a Girl’ for the White Stripes. It’s crazy how much more detail they got in this video using the dots on the dice. The video was directed by Wade Shotter over at Factory Films.
The Jack Spade Trash Coal Bag ($225) is big enough to hold whatever you need, whether it’s some towels and supplies for a day at the beach, or a laptop, accessories, and a few magazines for a day of work. Of course, calling it a trash bag and then only printing “trash” on one side of it would be pretty lame, so you can flip the canvas outer to the inside and reveal a photo print of a bunch of trash, possibly making the contents look not-so-appealing.
