Jacob Dahlstrup Jensen

I am having trouble sleeping and grumpily watching hours pass on the clock. However it really cheers me up that Jacob Dahlstrup Jensen has made such beautiful ships out of bananas.

Bill Plympton

“Idiots and Angels”, Bill Plympton’s new feature (!), is being released this October. Better yet, there is a screening at the IFC Center on October 6th. Everybody should go (very much a demand.)

Visit the official website (there are lots of video clips) or his blog for more information.

Thank you, Cordell Barker

Peter Clark

Peter Clark makes paper collages using found papers (and only found papers – no paints, no inks.) I love how much depth and texture he gets by choosing the papers carefully and varying pattern and color. Also love the added effect of folding and cutting paper -especially in the first one.

The Land of Giants

Alex just sent me these pictures, and wow wow wow I wish they were real.  They were submitted as a part of an Icelandic contest to design new electrical pylons. They won an honorable mention but no first prize…so alas…unbuilt.

But ooh these would look amazing in Iceland.


Pepa Prieto

Oh, I love this painting by Pepa Prieto. She has a lot of great work, but I keep coming back to this one.
