Sombrero Galaxy

The Sombrero Galaxy, or M 104 NGC 4594 (I dont know what it means either but that is its other name) is “an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo”. I got that from Wikipedia, but really besides this being a cool image, I appreciate that when I look up at the sky at night there is a sombrero watching over me.

Hieronymus Bosch

It’s always fascinating to see how the Adam and Eve story is interpreted. These two images make up 2 thirds of the Garden Of Earthly Delights tryptich from 1510. Take a looksee at how mister Bosch saw the perfect garden of Eden and the hell afterwards.

Gerson Reichert

As an artist who likes to layer a lot and hates starting with a blank canvas, I love these paintings by Gerson Reichert. It looks like such a fun process and reminds me of a series I did in college with a similar concept. I took left behind paintings from beginner art students and used the elements of their pieces whether it be color or form  and created a completely new image. Gerson takes found objects and magazines and plays off of what is already down.

Sipho Mabona

These lovely photographs capture the work of Switzerland-based artist Sipho Mabona. His origami creations are truly incredible (view his amazing Asics commercial here). I love his use of color and his incredible finesse in creating beautiful, architectural objects.

A few years ago I was driving around Downtown Los Angeles and almost crashed when these window installations caught my eye. At night, they shone like paintings through the windowpanes. The artist does really beautiful, site-specific installations that are graphic and linear. Very gorgeous work and worth a browse on her website.

The Mel Brooks Movie Poster

Im not afraid to admit that Mel Brooks has 3 movies in my top 5 favorite movies of all time list. But beyond the glory of the film, is the advertising specialty of the ‘movie poster’. Here’s some of Brook’s movies in all their comedy spoof posterish glory.
