I have a thing for art and artists. The Artist has been the archetype that I have been drawn to for as long as I can remember. The Artist was like a secret invisible friend – someone who was not really me but but a mirrored image only slightly different like a twin sister. When I need a fix of low-brow indie art I often turn to the blog my love for you is a stampede of horses.
Yesterday I saw that Kate of Obsessive Consuption was featured. She’s signing books and doing a draw-a-thon. I wish I could be there!
Another place I like to go for a fix of artsy input is Pikaland. I love the quirky, fun take on graphics and art. It makes me happy!
And if I really want to reaffirm my belief in art and love and love of art I watch this Australian documentary aired in 2009 on ABC. I love clever street art and I love partnerships like Miso and Ghostpatrol’s. Pour a cup of tea and roam the streets with Miso and Ghostpatrol.
This only the first third of the documentary. Don’t forget to watch the last two parts.
