Artsy Fartsy

April 7, 2006

Just a head’s up… Some of the links may contain nudity. This is a post about art after all. In checking the sites again, most nudes will be obvious before you click a link on that page to go to another section.

1. Odd Photographs

2. A great idea. What would happen if you took the fears of your youth and turned them over to an artist to render? Childhood Nightmares

3. Leggo Artistry

4. Photographs are art. I have 20 new wallpapers thanks to this site. Beautiful in color and scope. China’s Countryside

5. Pop art can occasionally be fun. Little People Unite

6. How many of you have been to NY city and never saw the art on the walls of the subway tunnels? No. Not the graffiti. Take The “A”rt Train

7. If you haven’t noticed, I tend to drift more toward those who have a creative side that doesn’t simply involve throwing paint on a canvas and calling it art. (The exception being Jackson Pollock. I like the idea of using everyday objects in new ways. Stick A Fork In It

8. A look back at where we are from. Beautifully colorized B&W photos from 1941-45. Grandpa Never Looked So Good

9. Sometimes art should make you feel alone. Abandonment Can Be Art

10. Unexpected photographs. This Is My Favorite with around 600 photos.

11. Sketch art is not appreciated the way I think it should be. No Courtroom Sketches Here

12. My new favorite photographer. He came to my attention because of his work on the limited edition of Stephen King’s ‘Salem’s Lot. It is a beautiful book weighing in at just over 9 pounds with Uelsmann’s surreal photos tipped in, and also embedded in the cover.


Here’s a photo of the book.
