Do you ever get the feeling when you sit down at the movie theater that maybe a seatbelt or something should come around your waist? I feel that way sometimes. Not always at the theater, but other random times when sitting down in cushy type seating arrangements as well. Today I wondered that, and I wondered why is it that I am so conditioned to expect a seatbelt to come around me, like second nature? I'm not really sure what I'm trying to say; I guess I don't make much sense. So I'll leave it at that.

I missed the show at Giant Robot, sadly, but if anyone is around Sawatelle Blvd, Giant Robot has a show with a ton of awesome artists. The gimmick is that all the artwork was done on post-it notes, and they're all available for purchase for $20 bucks.
And finally, art. You can see a lot more of the work on the websites as well.

Chris is a California native who graduated from Art Center (Pasadena). I thought his work was relevant because like my past couple posts, his paintings (like the ones below) start with an image that is abstracted or distorted through the computer and then painted. I think it's immediately apparent from the graphic integrity of his work that they are digitally inspired. It's really interesting to see how artists today are taking something "traditional" like painting and incorporating the "modern" digital aesthetic that is so popular now.

I wish I didn't cheat and draw in the nose. I think I might go change that now. Maybe the lips too. But I enjoy how the hair came out, with the polka dots and patterns and scraggly wisps at the bottoms.
This was created by cutting an image into strips and then reverse order pasting the strips onto paper (8"x13.5") Came out pretty cool.
This was just ripped up black construction paper, trying to focus on how to use negative space to dictact a solid object. I hope that makes sense?
