This is one of the weirdest things I’ve seen in a while.. by an equally strange artist called The Painter of Pancakes. He says he started painting after “I had something of a mental and spiritual breakdown”, makes sense, and he also adds “My paintings sometimes horrify my family”. Well I say good work, they put a smile on my face, check out all his Naked Obama’s with Unicorns here »

Bizarre video of him here.
Check out his paintings for sale on eBay.

NASAblad – Modified Hasselblad 500C/M, plywood & paint.
Not sure if I’ve ever blogged about a sculptor before, but I’ve taken a real shining to the work of Tom Sachs. He re-makes masterpieces of engineering & design, in his own crude style/technique with simple materials like duct tape and plywood. I think the end results are amazing and fascinating, l love that you can see every join, screw or material used.
Hardcore – weapon cabinet, mixed media.
Kind of a cross between a carpenters tool wall and action film weapon cabinets. Having something like this would definitely satisfy a childhood fantasy, bring on the zombies!
Bösendorfer – plywood, Marshall amplifier, electronic keyboard
It’s great that he’s made this a working model, hobbling together the guts with keyboard, amp and speakers, as well as piano body.
Straight out of 1949 and looking fresh, this bathtub blows my mind. Very rarely do you ever see illustrations presented ‘underwater’, but I’m liking it :) Check out more of Saul Steinberg’s simple and witty work here »

Ifound Art Brut(e) this morning after Jessie linked up my Christmas cheat sheets, 2 hours later I’ve just finnished digging through her archives… Anyhow, chock full of good stuff, I’ve cherry picked some of my favs here: Nicky had shown me Life magazines photo archive on google before, but I hadn’t seen these shots of musicians from the 70’s in their parents homes before, brilliant! Above is Frank Zappa at home with parents Francis and Rosemary.
Ron English’s The Secret History of Kiss paintings.
Ladies, this will take the edge off your peroids…
Can’t be bothered to do any more pictures, here just some quick links: A lighthearted look at the relationships among marketing roles, Half a conversation t-shirts, Michael Gilletes Bond book covers and whatever you do, don’t miss Three Legged Legs‘ – Piece of Me, Piece of You – zombie puppet short.
Kinsey has updated his site with some new works, I’m totally mesmerised by this Zebra piece entitled The Audacity of Hopelessness.
Totoro is one of my favourite animated films, and a lot of other peoples too by the hundreds to amazing art works produced for the Totoro Forest Project. All the work has now been auctioned off the raise money for the National Trust Totoro Forest Foundation, but you can see all the Totoro inspired work in the online gallery.
Ilove Benedict Radcliffe’s tubular cars, the first is surreal, looks like a photoshopped computer wireframe. But check out the pedalo Lamborghini, amazing! Apparently he’s try to flog the double ended Golf / metting room, if you fancy it?
Cheers for the link Dil.
At last I’m finally out of my old Orange contract and have got myself a new shiney iPhone. Just stumbled across the site Poolga which has a pretty impressive selection of wallpapers you can download for it for free. I especially like the simple silhouetted animal shapes by Laszlo kovacs.
Apologies, this is quite disturbing. I think that artist Ondrej Brody has spotted something though – this wouldn’t shock me if it was a Lion or Tiger, but I’m horrified when it’s a domestic pet. That’s pretty fucked up. Trust me though, this is nothing compared to the weird rat pants on the pdf you can download from here. (Not safe for work)
