Random thought?? So Stan is a skilled artist in his own way, he creates taxidermy creatures and cobbles together various crafts. What if one of the tourists who comes in is a snooty gallery curator and sees the stuff around the Shack and is like “Mr. Pines, this is exactly the kind of avant-garde outsider art my gallery is looking for. There is a certain je ne sais quoi to these, and people will pay a hefty sum for these eccentricities” “Don’t know what Juno says quack is but you had me at ‘hefty sum’. So that’s how Stan gets to be in an art gallery with all his stuff on display everywhere. He drinks a lot of wine, and eats all the fancy cheeses, and wrangles patrons. “My oh my, what is this delightfully quirky creature?” “What’s it look like, it’s literally a squirrel-duck. Lookin’ at it costs you five bucks.” I mean, Stan being in a fancy art gallery opening (with his stuff being displayed) is hilarious to me for some reason?
So sorta random but every so often I randomly like to check in and see if that amazing Kate painting (the fancy gallery 'metaphor' arrows in her hair one) is still around and available? I've been following you for years and had my eye on it for quite awhile but while I could get the money for payment and maybe even transport at some point soonish I still don't have my own apartment and thus a safe place to put it yet. But I like to dream realistically so checking on availability and gen pricing?
GREETINGS ANONYBRO. Man, I hope you weren’t holding your breath or anything; I really didn’t mean to be like, suspenseful or anything!!!, but occasionally my brain is a mess and I forget entirely about this whole Tumblr inbox thing, aha. Anyway. The funny thing is, I have done Kate with arrows twice and I don’t know which you mean.
Or this one?
I feel I just need to add,
Bad news is, both of those are sold; but the good news is, Monet painted the Rouen cathedral thirty times because he was so in love with how it looked in shifting light, and along those lines I am nowhere near done with Kate-with-Arrows. I have been thinking of doing another and you’re welcome to give me a concrete excuse, if you like. Both were 24″ x 24″ and sold for $575 + shipping (whatever the actual price is.) I’m in the US. Just for realistic reference, I shipped one to Canada recently that was a little bigger than 24″ x 24″ and it was $68. Shipping is realistically freaking expensive, like, I kinda wanted to buy the painting a Megabus ticket and personally deliver it with a hug, it would have been more fun. :D
So, if you have any more questions, feel free! Just in general, you’re welcome to send me one of those flashy sorts of messages if you prefer a private chat - I can respond to those even from dumbass tumblr mobile.
Also in general, thank you (and also you and you and you) for giving my art love over the years. It keeps me going when life gets crappy and frustrating. <3
I really love your builds in your cities. Where do you get these ideas anyways?
Well, I think I’ll put it this way.
I walked through a fancy warehouse modern art gallery with my friend recently. To me, the most artful, beautiful and magical thing was just outside. The chipped brickwork of the warehouse walls. Wooden telephone poles with dried black tar melted onto the sidewalk, which lies in between the blades of grass that make their home in the cracked pavement.
So yes, call me a classless boor, but to me, art lies in neighborhoods and streets. And I guess I’d like to be an artist.
It would be nice if you drawn Lily and Lola ( the daughters Ollie with Ruca and Trish ) in his adult version. I'm so in love whith them <3333
AHAHA! You found my old art<3 Lilly and Lola were characters I made to see what me and @goblinqueenbluebie ‘s characters kids would look like if we combined their features. I re-drew it and the grown up versions
I imagine if Lola existed she would be like a little adult since both of her parents are so childish lol. She would have Ruca’s big dark eyes, pointy nose and full lips but Olly’s face shape and BROWS and since Piebaldism is hereditary a white fore lock, sporadic spots and white lashes I think she’d grow up like a tomboy hanging around her mom and dad’s biker friends at the Blood bucket Pub learning slight of hand and how to fight. She’d eventually become the charismatic tatted gritty voiced Sailor Uranus that all the straight girls fall for in college haha
I imagine if Lilly existed she’d be spoiled rotten and roam the fancy art galleries her mother works at having famous artists as “aunts” and “uncles” Shed have Olly’s eyes and BROWS and Trish’s face shape curly hair and beauty mark. She’d be really prim go to gifted private schools and cheat her way through them just like dad taught her lol probably grow up to be the rebellious rich girl whose the muse for her grungey artist semi-dreadlocked boyfriend who paints with BLOOD D;<!!!
a/n: hello my peaches!! i don’t have to much to really preface this with tbh but i hope you enjoy and i hope it’s not too cheesy for you and please, as always, feedback would be just wonderful (◡‿◡✿)
“I’ll call you when I find out.”
His words were spiralling through your head over and over again like clockwork. It had been hours since he uttered them before planting a rushed kiss on your lips and darting out the door with his camera bag and portfolio in tow. Normally Luke was pretty relaxed, never letting thing get to him. He’d taught you a lot in that aspect, your gears usually tightly wound in stressful situations.
Today was different though. Luke woke up earlier than usual and headed straight to the shower. On any other day, he’d lay in bed for close to an hour, whining about how much he didn’t want to get up, how badly he just wanted to stay in the warm confines of your shared bed with you and Maggie, the lab you adopted together nearly a year ago. You didn’t even receive a glance today though as he rolled out of bed and started to get ready for the day.
enjolras holding grantaire’s hand as r answers the phone to find out if he got a position in a fancy gallery
combeferre and courfeyrac going on their first date and tripping over their words and laughing and not really knowing what to say for the first half-hour but then just settling back into their usual rhythm
joly, bossuet, and musichetta dressing up in matching costumes for halloween every year
jehan rolling his eyes every time that someone says “hey, you’re a romantic, right? give me relationship advice” and then just replying with “no, i’m a Romantic. skulls. long-dead poets. death. ghosts. haunted church yards. i don’t care about your relationship.”
Bookay-Ukay Bookshop, Quezon City, Philippines. Drools! I was drooling over this bookshop along Maginhawa street near the University of the Philippines. It was a heavenly experience roaming around taking random shots of, yeah, HEAVEN! I’ve been living here for years, and I only found out that it’s just a few minutes away from home.
Towers of books, fancy bookmark gallery (I’ll be showing them in the future posts so better stay tuned!) insane book installation, crazy typewriter installation, friendly owner, you name it… it’s the coolest bookshop in the neighborhood!
Thomas Berthier and David Moulin met at the Art Design School of Strasbourg. In 2005, they’ve build together “Kouglof”, a graphism company. Since 2008, l'Atelier Kouglof show frequently their creations in different cultural places like “La condition Publique” (cultural factory), “Le Bar Parallèle”, “Bonnefooï”, and they also participate at some collective exhibitions.They used to work with different techniques and on a lot of materials (canvas, paper, board..), and they finally open their artisanal silkscreen workshop in 2012.
This place is on opportunity for them to create with a lot of freedom and try new experimentations. This year, l'Atelier Kouglof present at the gallery L'Oeil Ouvert, an Abecedaire, the last creation of the artists. This silkscreens, numbered and signed are made with thin and precise lines at the workshop of l'Atelier Kouglof, in Lille. The surprising colors and the design really funny of the series make it a unique work at the gallery. The fancy creatures who come from the imagination of the artists have always a powerful dynamism and are coherent one with another. The opening of the exhibition will be on Saturday 31 January from 18 pm, with Thomas Berthier and David Moulin.The gallery welcome you all for this beautiful exhibition of silkscreens, from 28th January to 28th February 2015.
