Shoe-Worthy: Neon Criss Cross

shoeworthy 062710 signature

What would you dooo for a Klondike bar?  I wouldn’t do anything, not my kind of dessert.  For french macrons though, I was ready to hear the challenge.  Since I’ve been slacking off on my illustrations, a friend decided that it would do me some good to get back into it.  So I have to create an illustration each day of the work week in order to receive 24 macrons for each one posted.

My latest obsession are shoes so a week of shoe-worthy performances are ahead. An a very full and happy belly is something I get to look forward to. Don’t worry I won’t eat all 24 macrons in one day, but for those who know me, I’m quite capable of it.

Hey That’s Cheating Rubiks Cube.

At first glance this imitation of the famous Rubiks Cube looks easy enough,  The Cube Fontaine by artist Claire Fontaine is all blue no mater how you turn it.  The beauty of art, keep looking and there is more to see.  ” The 6 sides of the cube shows views of the surface of the sea. Manipulating it gives unique and contradictory images. This poetic object mixes the solid of the cube and the liquid of water while discreetly evoking ecological disasters that surround us.”

I figure the helmet that gets sold for the most amount should be the daddy, having a legend like Luke Skywalker to support is not getting cheaper, doesn’t matter how old he gets.

Darcel Where You At?

Picture 1

Came across these series of images from artist Craig Redman. His cartoon character Darcel of Darcel Disappoints made an appearance at the newly opened Louis Vuitton London Maison, and gave us his personal commentary.  Actions speak louder than words with D.D.
