Polly Morgan is a modern taxidermist who combines simplistic and contemporary features with real birds and mammals. Her work spills out of the usual kitschy taxidermy mold and into the realm of art where her work speaks for itself in its stark symbolism.

I do a lot more than just draw. One thing i love to do is make movies. This movie was a chance for me to see what i can do. There was a lot of art involved in this video. I made every prop, i choreographed the fight and i directed the filming. This was an entry for a video contest that i won. Its a little cheesy and maybe a little childish, but it was fun and i think we can all enjoy it.
this is a link to my channel which will lead you to some of my other videos. I make videos about what ever i want.

Æon Flux was created by Korean American animator Peter Chung. It is set in the not too distant future where anything is possible. This short series explores morality in a future where such things may not be needed, and also blurs the lines of what is good and evil. A must see for anyone who loves animation. All sixteen episodes are free to watch online. Just click here.

I have loved The Simpsons for over 20yrs, even b4 my kids were born...it's one of the best written shows on TV! Here's a little art song from a Simpson's episode "Elementary School Musical" ..Jermaine and Bret, Aka."Flight of the Conchords" guest starred as Lisa's art camp counselors....
More Simpson stuff...as I was doing my research paper, I came upon pictures from Italian artist Roberto Coughi, who is one of the artists featured in our Vitamin D book, and found a few pictures looking very similar to the Simpsons...
Roberto Cuoghi's artwork is going on display at the Hammer, from Jan.22 thru May 15, 2011...10899 Wilshire Bl. Los Angeles, CA.
check out two of Roberto's Simpson-like pictures and tons of bowie artwork....@ www.bowiewonderworld.com/lab/gallery12.htm...
PS...there's quite an artistic fascination with Bowie...Elizabeth Peyton has a Bowie portrait in the Vitamin D book....maybe it's that hazel eye/brown eye thing he's got going on....

It is strange, interesting, and amazing to personally know an artist without knowing them. A few weeks ago, I found out that a man I knew was an artist, and to be matter-of-factly, a well known artist of this area. I know him as Paulden while others know him by his last name, Evans. Paulden Evans has been creating art for 10 years, as well as being a general contractor who builds custom homes. Evans makes us look at the familiar in new ways by playing with, and sometimes even contradicting, our expectations of how art should look and behave. His large-scale paintings, in oil enamel and metal are abstract, as he uses metal rather than canvas as his medium, coating the surface with layers of pigment. The top layers are cracked as with age or tectonic movement so that the bottom layers show through, creating unexpected flickers of color, reminiscent of specks of ore or jewels.

While searching for art I came across this picture. It is a sculpture made entirely out of legos. I've seen lego sculptures before and didn't give much thought to them, but when i saw this one it caught my eye. I'm impressed with the amount of emotion that is able to be conveyed with plastic blocks. The colors chosen are not some coincidences.
Every kid has played with legos and this is something we couldn't even dream of. I think what makes it great is the familiarity we all have with the building material. Who would have thought that such curvature and space could be created using square bricks? Who would have thought that something so beautiful could be made with a child's toy?
