then get distracted and let it go cold. Rinse cup and repeat.
Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy, in case you hadn’t heard. How dare she remove those ticking time bombs from her chest, amiright? Like, hasn’t she learned by now that her body is public domain and we all get to vote on what she does with it? Sheesh, how selfish can ya get.
My three pieces for the “Lined in Lead II” graphite groupshow that took place last month @ Gallery Nucleus. There’s still a lot of work available from all the great artists, for inquiries: http://www.gallerynucleus.com/gallery/pieces/384
Also, I have a new print out through Nucleus:
If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.
She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).
These photos are absolutely stunning. A perfect way to honor the memory of her mother. I bet she’d love these photos.
So breath taking!
The soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann’s film transplants Jazz Age sensibilities to the hip-hop era,
you know what transplants Jazz Age sensibilities into the hip-hop era? actual jazz music.
go listen to some Louis Armstrong, everyone!
You know, these are actually very interesting. The Great Gatsby might actually be the perfect marriage of all my audio and visual tastes. This may be the first time I really enjoy what one of Luhrmann’s films brings to table, haha. I’m excited!
My webcomic is live! Go check it out, it’s a webcomic highly influenced by reader comments and suggestions, like MS Paint Adventures. It’s about interdimensional demons and time traveling and demon killing and sex, please check it out while I whack away at the website in a horrible fashion.
