My dog could never keep this still, even for five seconds, so hats off to Maddie on Things. I just love the expression she gives knowing she is thinking things like… “Am I done yet?” and “I hope this makes you happy”. You can also buy most of these prints in the shop for 15 to 30 bucks.
Coincidence that I saw this piece on the subway by Sophie Blackall, and then came across this video of her working on that very piece appropriately named Missed Connections, after her popular book. Yet still my favorite has to go to Duke Riley’s U-Line poster, but Sophie Blackall’s newest piece really caught my eye, and can’t wait to get a closer look soon. Often the subway is too crowded to open a magazine or book, and sometimes I rather just take things in, and these MTA’s Arts in Transit pieces always grab my attention with their detail.
I was never a skateboarder. I tried when I was young, had my mom spend a stupid amount of cash for the deck, and all the hardware for my birthday to then never really use it. I blame Tony Hawk Pro Skater for that obsession. I sold the board for something like twenty bucks for a barely scraped-up board. For the first time since then I want another skateboard. This time it’s to be used as a piece of art. Plus it’s of one of my favorites… Arizona Muse, even though I’d prefer the Anja Rubik.
