Dane Cook airbrushed within an inch of his life

I found this a while back, on PhotoshopDisasters. It's a hilarious rant by Dane Cook, about the poster for his movie "My Best Friend's Girl". Just one look at this poster, and you can tell there are so many things wrong with it. I went for a double feature yesterday, and this movie was one of them. I still laugh every time I see the poster. Seriously, read the rant, it's funny. On a side note, Kate Hudson is always a sure bet to cast in Girly Movies. I loved her in "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days". It might be time to watch that movie again.

Licking icicles

I got it! Andy Goldsworthy! Andy works with natural materials like ice, sticks, leaves, rocks and dirt. For the most part his artwork is assembled with natural materials like thorns and even saliva (used for the ice star shown here). There are many books out featuring his artworks, and the one that I had the opportunity to flip through was titled "Wood". There is also a documentary that I am hoping to watch called "Rivers and Tides". View a clip here. I laughed at the end of this clip when he says "I am so amazed that I am even alive". I know when I lose a day worth of work (computer crash, lost notes, etc), my sentiments are a little different, and often involve cursing profusely.

Green Graffiti

Fall is my most favorite season. I love everything about it, especially the focus on nature. When I recently came across two artists who utilize natural elements in their works, i got really excited. The first artist that I would like to share with you is Anna Garforth. I love the concept of her "Moss Graffiti"! The piece shown here is titled "Mossenger". She is also featured on the site Environmental Graffiti

I will post about the other artist as soon as I can remember his name (watch for this one soon).
