Juxtaposition

Mikel Uribetxeberria is a talented photographer. His series, Animalia, showcases wild animals in urban environments. There's something so striking about these images. To see more of Mikel's work, click here.

I usually hate commercials. Truly. I do anything I can to avoid them, and usually end up watching 3 shows at a time just so I can flip the channel when one station goes to commercial. (And don't even get me started about the "bug" now appearing throughout the shows. Ugh)

However, I don't know why, but I find this commercial for Honda hysterical. Enjoy.

The Eve of History

As the world ramps up for Inauguration Day tomorrow, the excitement is becoming contagious. Whether you voted for Mr. Obama or not, it's hard to ignore the feeling of hope in the air.

Therefore, I thought I'd share this tribute with you. Since Obama's campaign spurred numerous pieces of iconic art, it's only appropriate to honor this occasion with an amazing art show. As found on Notcot. Enjoy....
Manifest Hope: DC is absolutely incredible, regardless of how you may feel about Obama, or the visual idolization of our new icon ~ the quality of art in this show, and the amount of art in this show is absolutely stunning. The focus of Manifest Hope: DC is three themes… Manifest Change - Health Care Reform, Manifest Unity - Workers’ Rights, and Manifest Opportunity - The Green Economy ~ in fact 15 of these works were picked from over a thousand submitted in the online contest!

Do you see what I see?

I am smitten by the work of Tebe Interesno, as seen on Graphic-Exchange. I love the fantasy world he has created. It's so magical, and emotional... yet it seems like it could almost be real if you just paid closer attention the the world around you.
