HOLY POODOO!

The Clone Wars

George Lucas said that Revenge of the Sith would be the final Star Wars movie. Well, George Lucas is a liar. But he’s the good kind of liar! Because on August 15th, Star Wars will return to movie theaters in all new animated feature film, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

I’ve already heard some complaints about the animation style. It is a far cry from Genndy Tartakovsky’s masterpiece but I, for one, love it. This still of Anakin Skywalker and his padawan, for example, reminds me of some of my favorite artists and illustrators.

Another Favorite

Riding with Death by Basquiat

Here’s another one of my favorite works of art, Riding with Death by Jean-Michel Basquiat. I saw it first in text books and later online but didn’t think much of it until I saw it in person at the Menil Gallery in Houston, Texas. The piece is very large and it photographs poorly because there is so much gold in the painting. Up close, I saw that Basquiat was aware of every brush stroke. The field of gold and the rhythm of the strokes was hypnotic. Looking at it was almost like looking at the ocean. The effect + the subject matter moved me unexpectedly.

IF CHALLENGE: All-Time Favorite Art

Hey punks,

It just occurred to me that we share our favorite websites and artists of the moment but we rarely talk about our favorite individual works of art. I’m curious. If anyone else wants to post their all-time favorite paintings et cetera and reasons why they love’m so much, I hope you will.

Here’s one of mine:

A History of America by R. Crumb

You can click the picture for a more legible view. The piece speaks for itself but I love it especially because it illustrates a daydream that I have when I am especially calm.

The War on Christmas Comics!

X-Mas 3 cover by Jesse Lockwood

My pals at Kindercore are celebrating the holidays with a comic book. Music, their specialty, is included and 100% of the proceeds go to Oxfam. I contributed one of my Christmas memories to the effort.
