doodling Despite a lack of blogging activity here which may suggest the contrary, I have been busy busy busy all week! Well, I took a week’s holiday from ‘real’ work – caught up with a friend, saw my mum & dad (my dad has been in China for the last 6 months or so, so that was an especial treat), and went on a day trip with Corey – the highlight of which was probably when he left his umbrella behind on the train there, but found it again on the train back! But around these brief outings I have been working non-stop. There are some new things very nearly ready to tell you about, but the most immediate, are 2 new zines (& something else a bit different), now available in my Etsy stores: The first is ‘Contours’, my first art zine, which is all about doodling.

Doodling: A Teacher's Secret Weapon for Unlocking Learning For educators, there are few things more frustrating than looking out into a classroom during the middle of a lecture and seeing nothing but bent heads. What are your students doing out there? Are they texting beneath the desk, despite repeated threats of phone confiscation? Sir John Soane's Museum A Rake’s Progress tells the story of the fictional Tom Rakewell in a series of eight paintings. Tom inherits a fortune from his miserly father – but then follows a path to vice and destruction. Painted in 1733, it followed the hugely successful A Harlot's Progress (1730) – another ‘modern moral subject’ – which was sadly destroyed in a fire in 1755. The paintings were bought from William Beckford at a Christie’s auction in 1802.

Los Angeles – Explore Parts Unknown Around halfway through the shoot, somebody called me and asked if I knew about “the Morrissey thing.” They said, “Morrissey is HUGE with Chicanos! Check it out.” This seemed, frankly, an incongruous if not an outright unbelievable assertion. If true, what was it about Morrissey—an English son of Irish immigrants, famous for his songs about doomed love, bad sex, homoeroticism, vulnerability, and alienation—that resonated so powerfully with Mexican-Americans? So I started asking everybody I spoke with as we filmed—from Ultimate Fighting stars Nate and Nick Diaz and Gilbert Melendez—to action hero Danny Trejo.

25 most creative examples of doodle art 25 most creative examples of doodle art Posted by Richie on Monday, April 5, 2010 · 40 Comments Regardless of any advancement in technology, pen and paper will always be the number once choice for any budding artist or illustrator. It is with the these pencil sketches that we create great designs. So, what exactly makes a doodle so fascinating even though it is claimed to be one of the most unproductive ways of spending time. James Gillray: The Art of Caricature James Gillray (1756-1815) was the leading caricaturist of his time, an artist of outstanding inventiveness who continues to influence satirists today. Satire has often been seen as the disposable art of an urban, commercialised culture, one of the plethora of consumer goods which are continually outdated and replaced by new offerings. Graphic satire usually deals with fleeting events, so that its value as art, whether of the cartoons in our daily papers or 18th century caricatures, appears to last no longer than the topicality of its subject matter.

Casa del Alma I had to make pause in my current Zentangle, because a fellow Zentangle artist in Facebook had posted a picture of a icosahedron that she had tangled and I thought it looked so awesome that I had to tangle one for myself. And here’s the result: You can find the template for the icosahedron: here You're the Top "You're the Top" is a Cole Porter song from the 1934 musical Anything Goes. It is about a man and a woman who take turns complimenting each other. The best-selling version was Paul Whiteman's Victor single, which made the top five. It was the most popular song from Anything Goes at the start with hundreds of parodies.[1][2]

Paul Klee: Triumph of a 'degenerate' "I cannot be grasped in the here and now," the artist Paul Klee wrote as the first line of his own tombstone epitaph. Which in one sense is the opposite of the truth. There are few among the leading Modernist painters who are not more readily known than Klee, with his spindly lines and squared block colours, and even fewer who are more readily loved. Picasso and Matisse seize you with their vision, Klee has the knack of making you feel a partner in it. Click here or on 'view gallery' to see more of Klee's works on show at Tate Modern
