a little out of the ordinary

I usually only post my own work, but I thought we could all use a little humor today.

This little piece is titled Hangjongeren by Idiots

I came across this artist while in 3D design and he spurred my hanging horse phase. His name is Maurizio Cattelan and the title of the work is called bidibidobidiboo. You should look him up.

So if you are feeling inspired and you want to make your own creation but perhaps in a more traditional pose and not so tragic you can purchase this mounting kit for just $39.99 at Cabella's (video also available).

Sorry Mom,

a school assignment it is

So for all of you occasional readers, feel free to disregard. Ahhh...my creativity is being murdered at the moment.

I found one awesome website about how blogs can be used (10 ways actually) in the classroom. The website is http://edublogs.org. But since we had to go find three blogs about what this website just told me, here goes.


A great resource for art teachers. This blog has current information on where to find even more resources online as well as lesson ideas, and we like that.


A way for students to enter contests, post their own work, and vote on work of their peers throughout the country. I think if incorporated into the classroom, students will be excited about art and gain more ideas from what they are seeing.

This last one took some time, but I like the way the teacher has set it up. This blog is a good way for parents to see what their kids are doing in the classroom. The students also see their work and are able to gain a sense of pride not only for themselves, but for their classroom as a whole.

And now for the blogs/sites I now subscribe to...hoo-raw.

Time to treat myself to yet another diet coke...and red velvet cupcake. Stop judging me, if you tasted red velvet cupcakes as delicious as these you would understand.

Actual work soon...I promise.
