Dominos and Vincent Van Gogh – very clever!
A new marketing blog I discovered last week – some very interesting ideas that I need to reflect on, as I am in a very dry, inactive period right now.
Perfectly4med is an interesting blog of work – either zentangle patterns or work completed for a certificate. This is a detailed look at how this piece went together – very interesting.
My introduction to Gee’s Bend quilts happened when I went to the International Quilt Market and the quilts were at the Houston Museum of Fine Art. It was quite the experience. Here’s an article about one of the women.
I’m interested in Helen Keller – always have been, and especially more so since the Zinn Education group has been showing us materials about Helen that are left out of the history books – kind of sanitizing this amazing woman, so we don’t know she was a socialist and women’s reformer. So here’s an interesting letter from Letters of Note to Mark twain.
Also from Letters of Note – a look into the development of Star Trek, from the point of view of Gene Roddenberry and….Isaac Asimov. Very interesting.\
From The Best Article Every Day comes two clever take-offs on Sunday in the Park with George. Here’s just a peek…..
From Brain Pickings comes a very clever series of graphics illustrating some pretty obscure words. If you enjoy words, you’ll love this!
From Cool Hunting comes some very interesting art: Taboos, Tatoos, and Native American Beadwork from Eri Imamura. “… marries disparate elements of mythology, Native American beadwork and tattoo culture to create life-sized textile sculptures. Collectively, they deal with man’s delicate relationship with nature, his propensity for materialism and Japan’s collective suffering following the 2011 earthquake.”
And, finally, from TED: How a Lonely Girl Earned 1.6 million friends:
Have a good week – let me know what you find on the web!
