Loving David Peterson’s Muppet adaptation artwork, as featured in Lauren Davis’s article on io9 “Muppets illustrations reenact classic tales and legends”. These would be great to use for class- so playful and clever. They would be a wonderful springboard for many activities, conceptual and artistic.

“A close encounter between two mechanical cog-people speeding smoothly in ice-skating motions down metal tracks, falling apart and rejoining, seeking a way to be together in a world where paths are narrow, mistakes are fatal, and there is no way back.” NYICFF. Gorgeous film….for all my friends who like moving through life on wheels as much as possible-

Life Line – Életvonal

Art is a propellant in life, fuel for the imagination. The idea for some of these pieces came from io9.com, particularly Lauren Davis, staff writer for the site.

io9 writer Lauren Davis reports on illustrator the Gorgonist’s, aka Robin Kaplan, concept art in her article “Fancy girls dress up as Droids, Daleks, and Death Stars”. These playful and smart pieces are available on Etsy.

For class, I think these pieces will serve as incredible models and inspirations for student work: adaptations and fusions, illustrated and writing.

Twist and Shout by U900

I love this song. It’s quite beautiful. My spin instructor plays it while we ride and the energy in the room lifts-

A beautiful blog post which quotes the book-

These books are incredible- very well written! I can’t put them down and there is quite a buzz online about them and among friends and family. I’m really looking forward to the film- I hope the artwork in the movie is insane…on par with costumes like Jean Paul Gaultier did for Fifth Element-

 

 

I love the hair and branch enmeshment. My friend forwarded me this image with the lyrics to the Royksopp and Karin Dreijer Andersson compilation “What Else is There”-

"The Bitter End" by Bluefooted on Deviant Art

“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
― G.K. Chesterton

I think students would love to make graphic art combining themselves in a meaningful way with dragons.
