Visual journal pages from the past week. And a new art table chair. My other one met with an unfortunate ending last night. Uh…Paul. If you're reading this. No Pilates demonstrations on this chair.
Mailart and a long letter from dear Suzanne in Assisi. I'm vicariously enjoying her months in Italy very very much. I will have to put her on assignment photographing Italian street art for me!
And finally, I took so many photos yesterday on my graffiti bridge excursion that I wanted to share a few more.
See the little waving fellow? Did you know those little stickers were called street logos? I didn't. Here in LA you see them on all sorts of street signs, newspaper machines, electrical boxes, anything metal.
I started reading this book the other day in a bookstore and it was so interesting I had to buy it. If you have any interest at all in graffiti art (mine is mostly confined to graffiti posters and stenciled street art) this book is a fascinating read. R. Gordon at Amazon says it better than me:
This is a great book showcasing those who are on the cutting edge of graffiti art. This is not your typical "tags" graffiti. These folks are pushing the envelope, blurring the lines between cartooning, graffiti, and fine art. Visual artists, do yourself a favor and pick up this book. It's full of fresh ideas and talent that will make your head spin.
